SideBae on Narset, Enlightened Master

1 week ago

I mean, the easiest way to improve the deck as I see it is to improve the mana situation, both in the lands and in the rocks. For the lands, I suggest cutting one or two, since if you play more rocks (see below) you'll play faster and still have all the mana you need. Fetch lands (like Scalding Tarn or Windswept Heath ) are the easiest way to improve your mana consistency, but unfortunately they tend to be prohibitively expensive. I suggest running more duals like Shivan Reef , Battlefield Forge , Sea of Clouds , etc. instead of your ETB tapped lands like Mystic Monastery .

With regards to rocks, you're already running two of the best ones ( Sol Ring and Arcane Signet ). However, I've never liked 3-mana mana-rocks like Chromatic Lantern or Jeskai Banner , since in my experience things like Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Creativity , Fellwar Stone etc. are simply better. I'd advise increasing the number of cheap (CMC<=2) mana rocks in your deck, as well as cutting one or two basic lands for the same number of cheap rocks. This'll both speed up your deck in the first few turns AND increase the number of hits you get from your general's attack trigger.

Speaking of the attack trigger, consider Strionic Resonator . I play it in my Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger deck, and I've found it to be a pretty good way to press an advantage. Being able to see 8 cards rather than 4 with Narset, Enlightened Master 's trigger seems pretty good.

Depending on your personal theory of ethics, you may wish to consider mass land destruction (MLD) as another method of winning. I personally have no problem with it, but some people might not like it. Anyway, if you want to go that route you should run Armageddon , Cataclysm and (potentially since it's about $100) Ravages of War . Note that Jokulhaups doesn't really work, since it'll kill your general, too.

Wear / Tear is, I think, an auto-include in any deck including Boros colors. It's an extremely efficient method of spot removal.

Reconnaissance is a card you may wish to include, depending on your meta. It'll allow you to attack and trigger Narset even if all your opponents have profitable blockers. Same goes for Maze of Ith .

I've always loved Dack Fayden in EDH. He steals rocks, loots you to where you need to be, and only costs three mana... If you have access to him, I highly advise including him.

Preordain is a good cantrip on par with your Brainstorm and Ponder . While it is admittedly less powerful when it comes to leaving a card you want to cast with Narset on top of your library (since you'd have to scry both to the top), it is a powerful enough turn 1 play that I think you should run it anyway. I have frequently found one-land hands keepable on account of cantrips, and running Preordain will make it that much more likely for you to hit a good opening 7.

The last card I want to mention is Proteus Staff . If you cut all the creatures in your deck except your general (which I honestly think you should strongly consider doing), you can use Proteus Staff to reorder your entire deck. The way it works is this: second main phase, after you've attacked with Narset, Enlightened Master and (hopefully) gotten an extra turn coming to you, you target Narset with the staff's ability. That tucks her to the bottom of your deck, but then immediately finds her again and puts her into play (since she's the only creature in your deck). Because Proteus Staff says to put the other revealed cards on the bottom of your library IN ANY ORDER, you can then put all the other cards in your deck in any order you wish (since your whole deck has been revealed). That means you can stick 4 extra turn spells on top, cast them during your extra turn, rinse and repeat.

Good luck! Hope this helps.

Lol, where did all you guys come from?? I haven't updated this deck in forever! I took apart this deck a while back and it's spiritual successor has been my Thada Adel equipment voltron build. The reason I like Thada Adel as a voltron commander is that a was experiencing as issue with running out of cards. If I don't draw a Cataclysm or Worldslayer once I'm out of gas, I can very well be out of the game. Changing the colors negated that considerably, and provided a unique way of playing mono-blue artifacts.

If there's enough interest, I can take a look at updating the deck. Off the top of my head Shatter the Sky and Shadowspear from the new set would be worth playtesting. Going back a bit, Sword of Sinew and Steel and Cleansing Nova are other cards I would swap in over Sword of Vengeance and Divine Reckoning respectively.

What have you been subbing for Ravages of War ? I sold the deck, but I have most of the non-foil versions still, so I'm probably just going to rebuild the cheap version of the deck. Ravages of War was something that simply has no cheap version of, so I've been wondering what to sub for it. I was thinking Cataclysm .

For me, playing all of these green based decks with low cmc 4 toughness creatures, Path to Exile allows me to deal with the creature turn 3 and still hold up counter magic to ensure the board stays clear until my next turn. I've found that to be well worth the ramp. Feels bad against RDW and similar builds though.

I think you would like Gerrard, Weatherlight Hero . Due to his ability, you can do some very cool things, if you're fond of wiping the board, but want to be more aggressive about it. He makes cards like Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , and Scourglass a lot of fun. If you were thinking Jor Kadeem, I've had a copy for a long time and have just never seen the potential, but Gerrard makes much better use of cards like Mishra's Bauble , Urza's Bauble , Ichor Wellspring , and Arcum's Astrolabe for insane card value, along with bigger stuff like Memory Jar and the above-mentioned Scourglass . I'm in the process of collecting cards for a Gerrard deck, and the angle I plan on taking him is Spitemare , Boros Reckoner , Lavabelly Sliver , Truefire Captain , Mogg Fanatic Coalhauler Swine , and Creepy Doll with mass damage effects like Star of Extinction and Blasphemous Act . Throw in some redirection cards like Master Warcraft , Gideon's Sacrifice , Nomads en-Kor , Outrider en-Kor , Shaman en-Kor , and Warrior en-Kor , and you can build a deck that really does uniquely Boros things focused on mass destruction and direct damage.

Burningdragon91 I used to run with Reconnaissance and Nahiri's Machinations but they were both dead cards. With 3 opponents, someone is ALWAYS open or has 1 creature to use any of the single target removal, OR first strike just overrules their blocker. Narset games don't last long. HOWEVER, if they "do," there are 2 creature board wipes to cast to remove what you need: Catastrophe , Cyclonic Rift (also single target), and Cataclysm .

Good question.

I'll try to keep things budget friendly. First, get rid of all 7 of your mana rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Generator Servant , Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , Crystal Vein , and Lotus Petal if it's in budget.

Aqueous Form , Bonus Round , Smoke , Cataclysm , Razia's Purification , Long-Term Plans , Brainstorm , Dream Cache , Ral Zarek , and Dragon Breath are all good budget(ish) options.

  1. I've found 3-mana mana-rocks to be largely inferior to two-mana mana-rocks. I think you should run things like Orzhov Signet and Rakdos Signet over their respective lockets. Also, Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Conviction . Other two-mana rocks to consider: Arcane Signet , Fellwar Stone , Thought Vessel , Prismatic Lens , Mind Stone ... these'll help you produce mana while allowing you to run fewer lands; I try not to go above 33 in most EDH decks.

  2. Card-draw is essential to a good deck. Consider Painful Truths , Phyrexian Arena , Mentor of the Meek , Faithless Looting , Light Up the Stage , Commune with Lava ... anything that can get you more ammo.

  3. You're in the colors to run some pretty powerful hate-cards. Consider some of the following: Aven Mindcensor , Eidolon of the Great Revel , Grafdigger's Cage , Harsh Mentor , Suppression Field (if you're really ballsy), Thalia, Guardian of Thraben , Cataclysm ...

  4. Wear / Tear is damn fine in any deck touching its colors. Fire Covenant , too.

I gotta go to class. Good luck.
