Trolling 101, with Professor Norin

Commander / EDH* Burn Combo Mono-Red



Norin is the ultimate warrior. No questions asked

A friend of mine doesn't think I can make a good EDH deck without spending a lot of money on cards.

So that prompted me to make this. Its essentially a lockdown style deck that causes chaos literally everywhere. Enough to disrupt everything and give me the upper hand. And hopefully convince him never to underestimate my deck-making skills again.

Also, breaking Norin the Wary is pretty fun. I WANT THIS DECK TO TROLL HARD. Its become a zero [email protected]#%'s game of EDH whenever I play this deck. Always brings lots of fun.

Its not supposed to win, just provide a lot of laughs until i get hated off the bored.

Suggestions and +1's please!



This deck was a star at my play-group's game night last night. While it didn't win any of the games, it did manage to disrupt the field enough to keep one player from comboing out a la Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, and others from playing spells thanks to Confusion in the Ranks. He forced a board wipe twice just because of the crazy enchantments he had supporting him. The craziest play in the deck had to be a top deck Gate to the AEther playing of Boldwyr Heavyweights while Pandemonium and gratuituous-violence were in play. The deck did close to 40 damage in one turn to an Angus Mackenzie player when everyone ganged up and used the Pandemonium effects.

Overall I am very pleased with how this deck turned out. Its very casual and has the ability to win without being too serious about it. However, I'd love to see Goblin Game resolve at least once in my lifetime before i quit playing magic. People have no love for that card for some reason...

You should add in Worldfire! It's a winning combo with your general!

YES!! Great Idea. It would be an auto-win, but unfortunately, Norin the Wary triggers his own effect by attacking >.< Still a fun card to add!

Not many people do but there has been some testing that shows Azusa, Lost but Seeking goes in his slot well.

you could always ignore ban lists if your play group is ok with it.

T-up for trolling the battlefield :-D

PS: Obsidian Battle-Axe is there only to abuse Pandemonium and Warstorm Surge with Norin even more?

alexsmith21 says... #14

Thanks bud! :D

Thats exactly why its there. When Norin comes back into play, he'll enter the battlefield with Obsidian Battle-Axe attached, and do 4 damage from an ETB trigger off od Warstorm Surge or Pandemonium and it does 8 damage if Gratuitous Violence or Furnace of Rath is in play !!!

Chain Reaction should go out for Starstorm , I think.

Might not be a bad switch. I'll have to playtest it and see how it works out.

Jokulhaups ? +1

alexsmith21 says... #18

Thanks for the +1! Jokulhaups is good but mass LD is generally frowned upon in my playgroup so I don't think I'll be including it.

Naked Singularity's color identity is five-color. Otherwise, I like it!

If you have ever wanted to make a control deck literally worthless play Possibility Storm.

Enough coin-flipping to justify Krark's Thumb? Fun deck.

July 19, 2017 8:07 a.m.

some missing Warstorm Surge type effects: Impact Tremors, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and maybe Electropotence

Check out my mono red troll style deck and let me know what you think. I believe we have similar ideas

Metaldad says... #31

this is awesome, mono-red seems like the way to go for trolling people. i did the same thing with my deck Cold Eyes and Scorched Earth!
