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.
