The goal of this deck is not necessarily to win, but to make it nearly impossible for your opponents to win. Chaotic fun.
Constant bouncing of Norin in and out causes your enchants to trigger. Damage and creature steal follows.
Redirect as much as you can.
Slow everything down as much as you can.
Other creature and control spell changes occurred but I don't feel like listing them all (but I will thank BossLeiser for the Archwing Dragon suggestion). The deck should be slightly more competitive now, but still just as chaotic and fun!
Changed about 8 or so cards that fit a lil bit better with the flavor of the deck. Should make for a more fun game. I will say that this deck RARELY wins... but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun.
And pretty cheap for an EDH deck if I may say so.
Also Furnace of Rath is back in. Bring the pain.
Thanks for the compliments guys.
@bstevens00 it is way fun and for the most part pretty cheap to build. I way recommend Norin as a general.
@ckrono yeah, furnace is a wild card in every sense of the word and it's probably going to bite me in the ass every now and again... but it so fits the flavor of the deck. That and I had that card available. I could probably stand to add another sacrifice outlet instead of furnace.
This deck is absolutely amazing! +1
I agree with Eleshblade in that this deck needs Scrambleverse . I think it is more chaotic than some of the other permanent swapping cards you have because some people end up with more than others and such. So i think it would be better in the mainboard than sideboard. Still an amazing deck. I might have to make something like this....
Oh my god. Goblin Cadets ? I have never seen this flippin' card in my life and it is amazing.
I seriously think this may be my new favorite card. I going to the game store like now to see if that have that in stock and replacing a card in my deck with that... TODAY.
THANK YOU. +1 to one of you decks, sir.
You, my good sir, are playing edh the way it was meant to be played. I've seen WAY too many heavy control edh decks that just try to win while shutting everyone else down. They can go sit on a cactus.
This deck is a shining example of fun and glory! +1 to you, your face, your descendants, and your deck.
This deck isn't very fast. It's also very under the radar. This deck doesn't really attract much hate, by the time you start to get hated on, its already screwed the board up so much there's not to much anyone can do about it. At least that is my experience in my meta.
Making this faster? I dunno, I mean, Norin will always come out on turn one. I know there are other red creatures who have when a creature enters the battlefield affects that you may be able to throw in. You could always throw in Scrambleverse (which I may do as well) so you can have another chaos effect, but you will always have some card to start making the game interesting in your first hand. You usually want to wait a few turns to make sure there are another permanents on the board to sufficiently screw your opponents.
I never really designed this deck to be all that competitive and I don't usually play to win... but it is really fun. At any rate, hope that helps!
Electropotence ? Annnnnnd Gratuitous Violence may be a replacement for Furnace of Rath as it limits the damage-doubling effect to creatures only? (Warstorm Surge and Electropotence both specify that the creature is the source of the damage.)
I made my own mono red burn though I went with Heartless Hidetsugu instead. deck:how-big-is-your-fwoosh Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Thanks for the comments. I tried Electropotence before, i didn't like it. Never seemed to has 2R open when I needed to use it... plus using 2R to do one damage each time for Norin just wasn't worth it. Gratuitous Violence won't work this because there is literally no combat damage coming from this deck... it is very rare you will see me swinging with this deck... Furnace of Rath just makes the game more deadly. Its fun!
I'll take a look at your decks and see if I can think anything up.
OMG!!! We have VERY similar decks lmao!! I will say that Trading Post and the land that makes and sacs goats (I cannot remember the name... something about a pasture I think) are amazing in my Norin deck! Unless of course you have Blood Moon out lol. Also Crucible of Worlds is another great card for after you have blown up lands. +1 from me and GREAT deck! Maybe one day I will put my version up but it honestly is only maybe 10-15 cards different without actually counting lol.
I did have Blood Moon in but it kept screwing me over, so I dropped that ish. Crucible of Worlds is a card I never wold have thought to put in but can see it would be great. Too bad it costs like 20 dollars cause I am flat broke right now!
I appreciate the help! Thanks! Put a copy of yours up so I can check it out!
First of all, WTF!!! I checked this deck like not even a month ago and it had about 300 views?!?!?!?!?
Can't +1 again... lol just awsome
Worldslayer was always a thought... but I honestly rarely attack creatures in this deck. Its just not made to really attack, I mean it can... but it does not it reliably... that's why Worldslayer isn't in.
Chandra would be great... I have have no idea what I would pull at this point. I have changed so much since I first started this deck and I really like where it is now.
Also yeah. Deckcycle every day man! Get them views up!
I played with a deck very similar to this one. I would lay down my awesome artifacts and enchantments and my play group would blow them up. I would suggest putting in cards like Crystal Chimes , Skull of Orm and Buried Ruin . Also cards like Reforge the Soul , Wheel of Fate , Memory Jar , and card:Teferi's Puzzle Box help you find the good enchantments you want like Confusion in the Ranks .
Thanks for all the comments dudes (and Dudettes if there are any)!
card:Teferi's Puzzle Box Is awesome, never even thought about that one! That may have to slide its way in...
Storm Cauldron is also awesome... so many awesome cards and no room.
What should I take out!
Also, in regards to card:Krark's Thumb: I know. I know. I know. It should be in there, but the deck isn't really reliant on the coin flips and that is the ONLY reason that card isn't in there. I have a playset and I want to put it in but I just feel like it'll never pay for itself.
Hey, commonhumans! I really love your deck idea. Pure chaotic fun is what I'm looking for too. Ain't no rewards for winning at EDH anyway. So here's my two cents. Goblin game has got to go. I would be laughed off the table if I played that in the local games/card/comic book shops. It's strictly to be used in domestic situations. More importantly, Worldfire has been banned since Sept. Also, you say that Norin combines with your enchantment ETB effects, but you're only playing three out of thirteen. How about Goblin Assassin , Hamletback Goliath , Blasting Station , or Minion Reflector ? I've included a Chaosphere and a Wand of Ith to add to my deck's randomness. Okay, that's it. Have fun storming the castle!
@Kristoff - Yo! Appreciate it! I have actually removed worldfire but I just havent updated it... and everyone hates goblin game (including the gamestore - but they never kicked me out!). So it stays. This deck is not built to win, its built to infuriate.
But I do like the suggestions! I'll see if I can work some in!
@commonhumans you told me to put up a copy of my deck many moons ago... Well my lazy self finally did :P The Deck Everybody Hates - (Norin the Wary). They are very similar like I said with just a few changes. However like you told him Goblin Game is an amazingly hilarious card!! I have won 2 games because of it lol. My favorite card is Grip of Chaos though. NOBODY likes to see that come down. We actually have a catch phrase for when I play this deck with Heat Stroke . I have to yell out, "It's getting hot in this b****!!!" haha
