Ancestral Knowledge is another option to dig deep early for mana rocks, haste enablers, or Cavern or use it later to set up Narset for a 110% busted turn.

Bloodwater Entity is extremely useful here. Its on legs so you can flicker it or copy it. Other topdeck manipulation creatures Omenspeaker Sage Owl Spire Owl Sage of Epityr Augury Owl

Cards that can abuse topdeck being known Psychic Battle Chaos Warp Spark of Creativity Erratic Explosion Prophetic Flamespeaker Abbot of Keral Keep Augur of Bolas Dark-Dweller Oracle Experimental Frenzy

Cards that let you see topdeck Lantern of Insight Goblin Spy Future Sight Magus of the Future

Cathartic Adept and similar mill effects can help you move past undesirable topdeck cards. Gives control when you can see enemy topdecks Pyxis of Pandemonium Ghoulcaller's Bell Drowner Initiate Hedron Crab Jace's Erasure Drowned Secrets Codex Shredder

If you're looking for combo potential, Memory Lapse is pretty filthy with putting your spell from hand to top of library, and it raises your storm QUITE A BIT. Hinder can do similar tricks.

Thanks for your suggestions! I removed Tezzeret, Teferi, Doubling season and Sisay. But i added Solemnity , Dark Depths and Ancestral Knowledge so now i still need to cut 2 :/

Seeing as you're super dedicated combo, have you considered Ancestral Knowledge ? That's a LOT of digging for combo pieces.

I love this deck, busy putting it together and came across Ancestral Knowledge , it does a great job of setting up turn chains.

Ancestral Knowledge is really good here. Can be used to look up mana rocks early if needed but more importantly stacking/thinning the top 10 will win you the game with a Narset swing.

I'm also a big fan of Mizzix's Mastery and Bonus Round .

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

I had the signets in at first, but had to cut 17 cards, to get down to 100, i will switch them back in. Is Pentad Prism that good? After using both charges it won't benefit me any more. Since i won't run big spells and extra turns, i'm not afraid to not play Narset with haste, so I might skip on Generator Servant but I will put it on the maybe board to not forget about it ;) After a few solo playtests I think i can cut Thought Vessel , because i tend to loot often with Jeskai Ascendancy and have less than 7 cards in Hand, i will put Talisman of Progress in in exchange for that.

I left an Upvote for your deck ;) i really like Ancestral Knowledge and will see if I can put it in here!
I will put in the fetches later
