Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper Discussion

libraryjoy on Requesting Suggestions for Budget EDH …

I do a lot of budget building, and there are so many possibilities. I recently did Pramikon, Sky Rampart walls/vehicles & Rosheen Meanderer Hydras. I've also done Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper, Tolsimir Wolfblood green/white multicolor, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard with elves & archers. Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain makes a fun artifact deck. Wheel & Deal with Arjun, the Shifting Flame. I've been thinking of trying a Rienne, Angel of Rebirth multicolors matters deck. Talrand, Sky Summoner spells only. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep makes a fun merfolk/sea monsters/bounce build (even built this one as a pauper deck). Lathliss, Dragon Queen makes a fun mono-colored dragon deck. I don't play black, so I don't really have suggestions that direction, except to pull up a search for legendary creatures, sort by lowest price, and see if any of them strike your fancy. Or look at a color pair on edhrec, search through for interesting commander options, and start building.

I think it would be rather easy to build a super sweet budget Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper deck. There are so many cards to chose from to make it truly uniquely yours.

Shcooduloo If you control Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper and cast To Arms! you will trigger Noyan Dar and can animate a land into a creature. Then when To Arms! resolves you will untap all creatures. Since the land is a creature, you will untap that land. If you've been able to animate a bunch of lands, you will untap all of them. It's a risky play but can work out in your favor.

Experience is the best teacher. They will learn by playing their commander centric decks and not be able to execute their strategy when it's gone. It's a process that takes time, and if they don't want to learn yet, don't force them to.

Making a deck trying to teach them faster than they want to learn, will only antagonize yourself to them. Instead of building better decks, they will just stop playing with you.

Just let them play and enjoy their decks, until they don't enjoy them anymore and want to build better decks. That's how I learned too, my first commander deck ever was lead by Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper. It was only removal and cantrips, a few counterspells, but if my 5 mana commander was countered or removed, I wasn't doing anything. At some point, swinging in with a 24/24 land every 7 games was not worth the other 6 games doing nothing anymore, that's when I started building better allround decks. People advised me not to be so dependant on the commander, but I only started listening when everyone else's regular decks, not a specific commander-hate deck, but their regular decks, started outclassing me on every turn I didn't have my commander out.

The motivation needs to be intrinsic, external pressure on how to enjoy your casual format usually leads to opposite of the intended results. Be patient and let them figure it out themselves.

hope I'm not being annoying, have you thought of Marisi, Breaker of the Coil for Catra? Plays a little more to Catra's tactical vantage throughout the show. Also found Purraj of Urborg to consider

Glimmer would be great if she could flicker or bounce more ... maybe Derevi, Empyrial Tactician? Also found this Linessa, Zephyr Mage it would be better if she did something other than 'granduer' for the commander format

Perfuma's great on flavor but her function might be better found in Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy

Mermista might be cool as Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper or Prime Speaker Zegana something about the way she is in the show makes me think that she can get suuuuper big p/t wise. Maybe even Gravelgill Duo because of her cynicism?

anyhow, it's got me thinking ^_^ here's an alter for She-Ra Sisay, Weatherlight Captain

I think a Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper lands matters type deck could be really cool. I have a buddy who plays one that is basically a draw-go deck looking to wipe the board a bunch and take over the game as people lose resources. Cards like Tomik, Distinguished Advokist and Sacred Ground also give this type of deck redundancy. Not to mention the fact that Noyan's ability is so open, you can adjust your spells to be what you want, maybe putting in some weird jank.
