Thanks again for your suggestions so far on my Norin deck, I've made a few more changes based on your recommendations. Still haven't found the slot yet for Ignite the Future , but did a bit of playtesting with proxys and have ended up ordering another top + dockside extortionist now! They really seem to make a big difference in power, especially extortionist with my goblin tutoring abilities.

I can agree with Pia and Kiran Nalaar , I am myself still on the fence with it. On paper I probably should cut Treasure Map  Flip.. but I just love this card, have ever since it was printed, mostly it's just the awesome flavor of it, but it also makes games real smooth coming down turn 2, and not the end of the world drawing it later on.

Also I think your suggestion of Recruiter -> Top is the correct choice. I have thought about the recruiter in the past, but it's also pretty nice if I have a wheel-esque effect on hand to set myself up for a big goblin hand.

This feels good:

  • Loyal Apprentice -> Humble Defector
  • Mountain -> Homeward Path
  • Mind Stone -> Dockside Extortionist
  • Goblin Recruiter -> Sensei's Divining Top
  • Pia and Kiran Nalaar -> Moggcatcher

I'll have to think further about what slot to give Jeska's Will and Ignite the Future . I have to admit, not every card choice in my decks are necessarily completely rational, I also care about the feel the deck gets from running cards that are a bit outside of the ordinary. So I try to make my decks as good as I can while still keeping many of the core cards that made me want to build it in the first place!

Hello! Sorry for the late reply, had some issue with my service provider.

So let's see, I think I've considered most of these already, they are all really cool ideas, the main issue is making deckspace for them. Do you see anything that sticks out to you as potential cuts? Aftershock has generally been really good, people don't see it coming and being able to hit a broken land if needed is really powerful.

  1. Sensei's Divining Top : the main issue here is $$, I actually bought a copy not too long ago, but I put into my Titania, Protector of Argoth deck as it's just way too good there to go anywhere else. Feel free to check it out, The Entmoot if you have any interest. When I feel I can justify buying another copy, of course I will highly consider it for this deck.

  2. Ignite the Future : THIS is interesting and I had not considered it. Nice little synergy you pointed out there with Top as well. Great tip! I'll definitely give it a try when I get the chance.

  3. Light Up the Stage : I like it, don't get me wrong, but do I like it more than a recurrent value generator like Treasure Map  Flip or Mimic Vat ? I don't think so.. Has it performed for you?

  4. Jeska's Will : You're right, this should probably have a slot. Again, what to cut, if I shave anymore from the goblin package I don't think it's worth running them anymore.

  5. Zealous Conscripts : Precisely not in here because it combos with Kiki a bit too easily! I'm just not a huge fan of infinite combos in EDH that are too easy to pull off, and I have so many ways to search for Kiki.

  6. Dockside Extortionist : You're right, this guy would be totally nuts, but it comes down to $$ and I'm kiiinda hoping on a reprint before I splurge, we'll see how long my patience lasts heheh.

  7. Homeward Path : Absolutely if I find a slot for the Humble Defector this would be so cool. Again, slots. But perhaps I should prioritize the defector more than I currently am, haven't really tried it out, should try to proxy it up, but you know, not much going on where I live unfortunately on the gaming side because of covid :/

  8. Outpost Siege : it's cool and I definitely considered it, but I think there are other value/ping options that are far better, though the utility of being able to choose is nice ofc. I think if I do find I need another ping-style card this will be the go-to.

Thanks for your thoughts and such a in-depth comment on my deck. Really useful and appreciated!

Edit: I was gonna edit my own comment but deleted your original one by mistake! Ooops! Also I did not realize that Confusion in the Ranks triggers in that matter and neither has anyone in my group ever noticed hahah! But I think this just makes the card even more interesting, so thank you for pointing it out.

Sensei's Divining Top - Good on it's own, but with Ugin Ineffable and Experimental Frenzy , you can draw your entire deck. Frenzy isn't an entirely serious suggestion, but worth noting if you were interested.

How has aftershock performed for you? Might add it in my list, been on the fence about it.

Ignite the Future - "Draw" that helps land drops, nice with top as you can put top on top of the deck then cast this to ensure you can cast at least one card off the top. Do note you have until the end of your next turn to cast the cards. Since mono red struggle with draw, I have found this useful and it has won me 2 games through flashback.

Light Up the Stage - Baby brother of above, works well in this deck moreso due to your damage output

Jeska's Will - Draw and ramp

Zealous Conscripts - Good on it's own, combo with Kiki

Dockside Extortionist - Value on it's own, synergy with the treasure map artifact/land, nice with Genesis chamber too

Side Note: Did you know confusion on the ranks triggers on itself when it ETB's, meaning, you must change it for an enchantment an opponent controls? So few people know that, but it has saved me given red's lack of enchantment removal

I noticed Humble Defector in your maybeboard, I think it should go in along with Homeward Path . Path is nice politics so you can give stuff back IF you wish from confusion. Moreover, it messes with people trying to reanimate your stuff/others, again, politics. It's meta dependent for sure. If you're into politics, then it's a great card to pass between 2 players.

+1 for a low to the ground synergistic deck. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on each idea.
