The Noble Solidarity




I am making a series of decks that I believe are unfair to play against in the Noble format. The format was created by graft, feel free to check it out at Introducing Noble: the Format and try making a deck of your own. I am creating these lists in hope of establishing a Ban List for the format.

The uncommons used in this deck are 2x Reset and 2x Brain Freeze . Lotus Petal and Grapeshot can come in from the sideboard against Gaea's Blessing. The Ban Target here is Frantic Search .

I don't really see anything to ban here. They're all good cards in a well-designed deck, but it doesn't really hinge on anything in particular. Frantic SearchMTG Card: Frantic Search is probably the least fair card here, and if I were running blue combo it would definitely be a 4-of. Ban? I'm on the fence about it, and I generally prefer NOT to ban. Really awesome lists, thanks Kor!

Frantic SearchMTG Card: Frantic Search is the ban I am going for with this deck, if not High TideMTG Card: High Tide itself. But without certain cards, High TideMTG Card: High Tide can be slowed down enough to compete against, so banning High TideMTG Card: High Tide shouldn't be necessary. It should still be a deck, but it will run slower without Frantic SearchMTG Card: Frantic Search.

Playtested this a few times, and yeah, Frantic SearchMTG Card: Frantic Search is the problem card. If I have a ResetMTG Card: Reset in my opening hand on the play and decent other cards, I can go off during my opponent's upkeep once I get 3 lands and a High TideMTG Card: High Tide, but Frantic SearchMTG Card: Frantic Search acting as Dark RitualMTG Card: Dark Ritual+ is what makes the combo really run. Without it, there's a much stronger chance of the storm chain grinding to a halt if you don't get lucky.

Good call, gentlemen. For now, Frantic SearchMTG Card: Frantic Search will go on the ban list.

Considering Frantic SearchMTG Card: Frantic Search is one of the only two cards on the MTGO Pauper banned list (along with Cranial PlatingMTG Card: Cranial Plating), it's probably for the best.
