Arcum Dagsson seems questionable in a deck with 2 artifact creatures.

Anvil of Bogardan is a hard lock that doesn't permit instants to be casts during its resolution (unlike Puzzle Box ).

Why no Anvil of Bogardan to hard lock with Chains of Memphis? By itself it forces discard triggers.

I too have a chaotic Tariel reanimator deck. Really like your version as it is focused and streamlined. One card I would highly recommend that's missing is Anvil of Bogardan . Cheap engine that consistently guarantees good stuff in all graveyards.

Thanks for the suggestions! I am gonna try to test the draw and take damage cards as they fit with what I’m doing as well. Also wanna try out Anvil of Bogardan , seems pretty good.

KayneMarco Yeah that's definitely going in. I just need to get one. At the moment Anvil of Bogardan is filling a similar role, since it forces them to discard the one card they can draw for turn. Not quite as powerful, but it's not too hard to get your opp down to 1 card when you're wheeling constantly.

I'm working on a Narset deck that is on a much smaller budget, and won't be nearly as fast as your deck, but some fun things are Anvil of Bogardan to keep opponents locked out for cheaper than Teferi's Puzzle Box once they have no cards in hand. Sure Anvil gives everyone no max hand size, but if we play the deck right, we will be the only one who benefits. It's kind of a non-bo in your deck because you are running Cursed Totem but creatures that force other players to loot like Cephalid Broker can keep individual players locked out if we activate them on their upkeep while we have Narset. We can also do this on every opponent's upkeep if we have IsoRev, but there are probably better things for us to be doing if we get IsoRev. It's definitely too expensive for you curve, but The Immortal Sun keeps opponents from activating their Oathbreakers abilities, since we don't really need to be activating Narset much.
