OnTheCurve on Norin Nonsense (Optimized)

3 days ago

Hi Profet93 and thank you so much for your valuable input on my Norin deck! He is by far one of my favorite commanders. I get t he impression you have been running Norin for some time considering all of the recommendations you have provided me.

I will do my best to address each item:

Yes the Hero's Blade was in there just for that reason but in recent play I have found that it has not provided me with enough value to warrant it remaining in the deck. I also was running equipment protection with Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots, but again the value was not there. Sure they would protect the extra creatures in the deck but did not provide a step forward in the game. I have since removed these and have added one of your recommendations. Heat Shimmer and Dualcaster Mage. These two plus Imperial Recruiter seemed like the right changes considering the Recruiter can fetch virtually half of the creatures in the deck . The additional win con is a nice touch as well.

I find with such a low mana curve I have not run into mana issues. I will also be removing Shadowspear as well adding in Smoke as well as Gauntlet of Power. the mana ramp will assist with the low mana rate as well.

So far out of 18 games I have played Norin as won a Whopping 14! This has come from a variety of ways with ETB Purphoros, God of the Forge, Genesis Chamber, Repercussion + Blasphemous Act or mass creature damage with Glacial Chasm on board. nominal creature damage and of course politics. Norin never really feels like a threat to anyone until he goes off. Evenly depleting everyone for damage without being the aggressor.

some of the items you recommended like Lightning Bolt / Outpost Siege do not tickle my fancy due to the singular damage. I prefer equal damage for political reasons and the simple fact that 1 damage per ETB is not enough for my liking.

Now Terror of the Peaks is on order for me already and Ruby Medallion and Sensei's Divining Top are both great suggestions that I will be scouting out additional copies to add to Norin. Very valuable recommendations!

I Prefer the Curse over the Sword due to the low CMC and lack of equip cost. The Wheel of Misfortune is also a quality suggestion and an extra wheel effect that could prove valuable mid to late game. Light Up the Stage and Ignite the Future do seem good. I did consider them during my initial build but leaned towards Stolen Strategy for the repeat effect. Most games I hold onto Warstorm Surge and Confusion in the Ranks for both their high CMC and lack of board utility. I might give your two suggestions another kick at the can!

I do have an extra Crucible of Worlds on tap that I could use and that coupled with fetches could trim down the deck thoughout the game. I like your idea on this.

I have no budget for this deck so i am also considering the better more powerful Gauntlet of Might but having trouble locating one! My playgroup is ULTRA aggressive hence the style of this build.

All in all I am having loads of fun with Norin. He is slowly becoming my most played deck and with some of these suggestions I am looking forward to seeing how they fair in battle!

I thank you for your beefy comment and time you took with the recommendations my friend. When I have some free time I will check out your profile and decks. Return the favor you gave me :) Cheers!

Voltron Kozilek sounds sweet dude. Heres a couple suggestions for suiting up the madlad:

  • Whispersilk Cloak to put it simply, is insane!

  • Lightning Greaves is always a good option of course

  • Shadowspear offering lifelink on a would be trample menace 13/13 as well as extra utility should the situation require makes it such an amazing pick here.

  • Inventors' Fair is a free upgrade to one of your wastes, it's amazing in colorless decks like these where we spam artifacts.

Looking forward to seeing where you take this!

Nice deck! Have you considered adding Unsettled Mariner, Giver of Runes or Ranger-Captain of Eos in the mainboard?

Unsettled Mariner and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben seem to have a very powerful synergy with one another. Also, I would consider swapping out Collected Company for more creatures or artifact such as Shadowspear or Sword of Fire and Ice.

How about Auriok Champion, Drannith Magistrate or Scavenging Ooze in the sideboard?

Hey mlequesne, thanks for commenting!

I think adding Forbidden Orchard is an inspired idea, great suggestion! The infinite lifelink combo on Boros Reckoner is also definitely something I will look into. That's a great close reading of the card's rule text :)

Regarding Shadowspear and Darksteel Plate, I think I can see my way clear to trying those out, as I do own them.

Blasphemous Act does synergize with my creatures, but I do think it might destroy many viable targets for Piru, which would diminish her effect. I'll see about running it as a supplemental boardwipe ;)

For ramp, have you considered any combination of Ambitious Farmhand  Flip, Environmental Sciences, Kor Cartographer and The Birth of Meletis if you need a way to to get lands onto the battlefield faster there's also Walking Atlas

Puresteel Paladin is also an option for you. Not only can you get some extra card draw, but once you have 3 artifacts on the battlefield, equipping Balan will be free. Though Maul of the Skyclaves can enter the battlefield equipped to a creature.

If you have cash to spare, don't forget Shadowspear.

Also, since you have a lot of artifacts, Have you considered Inspiring Statuary, Introduction to Annihilation and Scour from Existence as a means to protect yourself from the Karn, the Great Creator/Mycosynth Lattice Combo? If nothing else, Inspiring Statuary will at least help make your nonartifact spells cost less.

Other artifact lands to put in your deck are Ancient Den and Treasure Vault

Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

     Rebelion: Funny you ask, as I just cut it today before seeing this comment haha. When I first built the deck I was just trying to include as many ways to provide Sacrifice fodder to myself as possible.

     It had been on the chopping block for some time, but I always felt like I got my three mana out of him. Either by having him eat a removal spell early or by getting a few tokens into play. I'd been able to get him into play early a few times with Shadowspear as well which definitely skewed my perception of how good he was in the deck lol.

Hi friend, nice deck! I love your boldness.

I have some suggestions for you:

  1. first of all Fiery Emancipation is perfect for your deck (I know it's in the maybeboard)

  2. Forbidden Orchard feels like a good land, it gives you any color and creates creatures to be destroyed later

  3. Blasphemous Act goes great with most of your deck like Stuffy Doll, Brash Taunter and Toralf, God of Fury  Flip. Maybe you can add more cards that synergize with that style like Spiteful Sliver

  4. I love that you play en-kor creatures, maybe you can try the cheaper ones.

  5. Shadowspear can help you deal with your opponent's indestructibility and also if you attach it to Stuffy Doll or his friends it can give you a lot of life. (I just realized that if you manage to make Boros Reckoner indestuctible and attach Shadowspear to them, you have a infinite life loop)

  6. Finally, talking about indestructible: Darksteel Plate can help you make your crew unkillable

See you around :) Congratz on your fabulous deck
