Quote from Slothful »I thought we already transitioned to yeet/execute?
Archon of Emeria - I've considered these cards in the past. I'm not super bothered by it not being a wizard or 2 or less toughness given its effect. This is definitely worth consideration, but I think the tap-down isn't quite strong enough.
Maul of the Skyclaves - Solid Voltron-y equipment. Mini Angelic Destiny seems worth checking out.
Concerted Defense is unfortunately not worth it without at least Geist out, but it's an interesting concept.
Jace, Mirror Mage is worth consideration. I think that it's low enough impact to not be quite worth it, but it's a cool concept.
Thieving Skydiver has a nice effect and in the right metas is totally worth it. It probably is almost worth it just for 2U for a 2/1 flying that steals a Sol Ring, but that's a little slow.
Benevolent Blessing - Almost worth considering. At 2 mana, it's slightly underwhelming, but it has a cool effect.
Slash the Ranks - At 5 mana, if you're getting this off, you're getting very lucky. Personally, I'll stick to Cataclysm and Supreme Verdict.
Eligeth, Crossroads Augur - Despite its CMC, I seriously considered this card. The effect can be absolutely bonkers, particularly when there's so many cards with incidental scry which are worth consideration.
Hullbreacher - I haven't run Rhystic Study for a long time. I've always kinda felt like I should pick one up again. Hullbreacher, meanwhile, is another obvious inclusion as a tempo-oriented static control effect.
Commander's Plate - This card is nuts. Easy include. Like another Sword, but cheaper.
Nothing. That's right. You get nothing. Good day, sir.
Demonic Lore - Worth consideration. I think it's marginally not good enough, but it's interesting, at the very least.
Opposition Agent - Yes, please. I love control cards like this.
Jeweled Lotus - This card is a dumb auto-include as a second copy of Dark Ritual. I hate the term auto-include, but unfortunately, it is what it is.
Leyline Tyrant - Yes, please! This card is really solid for what the deck wants to do.
Moraug, Fury of Akoum - Worth consideration as a bomb, but it is a bit win-more. I like the idea.
Relic Robber - Cute card. Not super effective.
Valakut Awakening - Worth consideration, but the wheel effect is slightly less than strong enough.
Valakut Exploration - I like this card quite a bit for what it is.
Forsaken Monument - Great card for the deck. Interacts quite well with a lot of other cards, despite being on the high-mana side of things.
Lithoform Engine - I'm torn on this card. I like Rings-style cards, but this feels just slightly too costly for its effect not happening more than once per turn.
Skyclave Relic - Strictly better Darksteel Ingot? Sign me up!
Coercive Recruiter - Comparable to Zealous Conscripts. Worth consideration.
Dargo, the Shipwrecker - I mean, it is just a beefy dude, but it's very easy for it to be a 1 mana 7/5 with trample.
Emberwilde Captain - Monarch is kinda whatever for me, but I'm going into the red zone a bit more often so I'm not entirely opposed to considering this card.
Flamekin Herald - I want to see this happen. A lot of cool effects from this. My thought process is grabbing Wheel of Fate, Mana Crypt, Mox Amber, Mox Opal, and [c]
Toggo, Goblin Weaponsmith - I feel like this card fits really well into what we want to do in the deck.
Wheel of Misfortune - I wish this card was better than it is. As is, I like the idea of it, but the most effective usage bothers me. I sorta feel obligated to test it if and when I next get a real game going.
Horizon Stone - Not nearly as effective as Leyline Tyrant. Worth consideration, but I think it's a little too do-nothing/win-more for its cost.
Ingenuity Engine - It's okay. At 7 mana, it's unlikely to be as worthwhile as I'd like, but it's worth consideration when going wide.
War Room - Decent consideration. Red decks like this one can use the draw, and this is one of the first lands where the cost/effect ratio might be worth it. That said, it's going to be hard to slot it in given the already present issues with lack of coloured mana. I'll see where I go on this. For now, picking one up to at least consider testing.
Quote from the_offspring »I changed my Norin to a Purphoros list in the past, and that version was relying more heavily on going wide, with cards like Snake Basket and Tempt with Vengeance. Moreover, I personally think Purphoros is, while undoubtedly more powerful, the more standard an frankly kind of dull option.
In other news: what do we think about the new carddrawing options Wheel of Misfortune and Jeska's Will?
Quote from Kangodo »No, the deck has too many things that work around Norin.
A Purphoros deck looks completely different.
Quote from Rhand »And Eco for trashing my original setup and help with tweaking the game to what it was now.

Yeah all the admins and most of the mods left to set up a new site when the site almost closed; Shadow's in charge of admin stuff now iirc (though many of their accounts still have permissions it looks like?)

Quote from DementedKirby »Interesting... I will probably just maintain my primers here just because they have some history and have been here for a while. There's lots of discussions and I believe that they'll still be useful if I'm still able to edit and maintain them. That being said, the staff here at MTGSalvation have made the experience and forums an amazing place and their dedication deserves way more merit and credit than can be given. I hope that, once MTGNexus is up and running, an announcement can be made and thus be able to create an account there (and hopefully no one takes my username ). It won't be easy juggling between being active in two different sites, but I will probably only be attentive here to my primers. If the exodus towards MTGNexus is a certain thing, then I will join that immigration.
