MTG: Casual – Noble Format

As I said, Seeds of Decay is only a month away or so. The new set offers a lot if interesting choice. But it could also mean that a month to start playing all the juicy cards with meta-choices.

In accordance to an article in MTG Daily yesterday, there were reference to a noble format. A variant of the pauper, peasant and even EDH deck, you can have a choice of playing a 60-card deck with mostly common deck, with a max of 4 uncommon in total, (which includes sideboard) and a mythic or a rare of your choice. This rare will be put as a commander’ of sorts hereby designated as “Noble”… but while EDH restricts the colour of choice in your deck, this Noble is not bound to use the same colours in your deck.

The Noble can be casted from the commander zone anytime. But once it comes into play, it becomes a normal card, so it will not go to commander zone anymore.

A deck is 60 card as normal and standard magic deckbuilding rules apply.

What makes the format interesting is the amount of common it has, making the format far more accessible for the casuals.

I will build a deck for it later, perhaps modern format instead of standard. Modern have far more variety of cards to play with and I have access to quite a number of them. And we see how it goes from there.

  1. This format seems pretty interesting. Kind of spicing up the Peasant format.

    • This will appeal to most people as you only include max/min of 1 rare or mythic. So you can still play a favourite card of your choice but at the same time, keeping the casual more money friendly since you play with mostly common and only max 4 uncommon.

      • Yeah, I agree. I only got into MTG a few years ago and it got boring for me quickly because I didn’t care to spend the big bucks on competitive decks. Pauper MTG brought me back and I have enjoyed playing that format at home. I will try Noble though.

  2. Yup. At the moment, locally we somewhat try to play more noble, since its easier to get commons… people get rid tonnes of those.. and also, a rare/mythic is usually what even casual player buy a few packs now and then.

    Plus, some get giddy once they realise they can play a copy of their favourite rare. 🙂

    • Do you have any Noble MTG deck lists posted? I did see your black/white Pauper deck list and that looked pretty good. I just put that same color Pauper deck together myself but won’t post that on my blog until I can play my friend. He has been playing since MTG came out and it’s tough to get any games off of him in any format.
