Narfi, Betrayer King Discussion

TheMeadiator on Norse Mythology

This was great fun to read and very educational too! I had no idea that all women learned magic. If only that tradition still survived...

Kaldhiem is such a great set! This is a perfect homage to it. Two questions: 1) Have you played with this deck, and if so, does it perform the way you want it to? And 2) Is Narfi, Betrayer King drawn from any Norse myth, or is he the product of WOTC minds?

Hey, well done on a budget so far for a first tribal deck. You have a nice tribal concept going and your card sense is good especially if you're a beginner.

You have 19 cards too many, some cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:

42 lands is a lot and there's also six ramp sources. You could cut 5-6 lands and be fine. I don't think adding Snow-Covered basic lands is worth it just for Narfi, Betrayer King . There's much better five drops and three drops here than Narfi to have to worry about having three Snow lands to cast him from your graveyard. The Snow duals that are an Island are good to keep because they help to activate Wonder . The other cards to consider cutting are simply not as good as other cards or Zombies at the same mana cost or have similar effects.

I offer more advice. Would you like more advice? Good luck with your deck.

Draugr Necromancer goes well with your kill spells. Restricts opponent's battlefield to graveyard too since Necromancer exiles the dead.

Spirit of the Aldergard fetches a snow land and gets bigger.

Blood on the Snow ? Narfi, Betrayer King ? Hailstorm Valkyrie ?

If you wanted to go the mill route, there's King Narfi's Betrayal and Iceberg Cancrix .

Blizzard Brawl for a bit more removal.

It's an interesting deck, but I think you are trying to do too many things with it. I prefer to have a playset (4) of core cards in my deck. There's lots of 1 card of this, one card of that. For the few white cards you have, you're probably better to stick with just black and blue. Cards like Narfi, Betrayer King and Avalanche Caller you probably want to have more of. I'd drop Orvar, Furneral Longboat, and some of the less useful draugr cards.

Reliquarian Thanks for the suggestions! I think there is definitely a place for most of those cards in this deck. Especially Rise of the Dread Marn and Narfi, Betrayer King . I think I will try to find a place for Ashnod's Altar and Night's Whisper as well. Chromatic Lantern was added after a few of us started running Blood Moon so I think I'll keep it in there for now but I might swap Coalition Relic in for one of the other rocks that come in tapped.

Looks good! +1 upvote from me.

You could consider adding some of the new Kaldheim cards. There is a good amount of zombie tribal support in that set (like Rise of the Dread Marn & Narfi, Betrayer King for example).

Other card suggestions are Living Death , which could combo with your Scarab God (You can exile any good creatures in your opponent's graveyards and then Living Death to get all the good stuff on your board). Another good option could be Ashnod's Altar to use with all of the tokens you're making. Skirge Familiar can also get some of your reanimation targets like Jin and Sheoldred into your graveyard for the Scarab God to make tokens of. As for your mana rock package, I would consider adding in Coalition Relic since it is a great little mana rock that will do a lot more for you than some of the rocks you already have at 3 cmc like Chromatic Lantern . Finally I would consider adding Night's Whisper to go with your Sign in Blood . You could either replace the Sign in Blood with it or just run both depending.

Hopefully those suggestions are helpful. Happy brewing!

I've yet to really see any pay-off with Draugr Necromancer too, he's only ever benefitted with Narfi, Betrayer King pumping him slightly, so I'm definitely considering dropping to 2.

As for Frost Augur I literally have a playset to the side ready to be slotted in. I almost kept just 1 copy in my initial build, but opted for other stuff first. I kept bouncing between dropping an Avalanche Caller and an Ascendant Spirit to slot a pair in just to see.

Overall there's so many sweet snow cards in this set, was so hard to narrow it down to these. Love the feedback, very much appreciated. Gonna keep testing and seeing where I need to adjust. Already added in 1 more Binding the Old Gods due to just how good it is. Thanks again dude!
