Kingdomsteel on Cheating, an Enlightened Commander

3 weeks ago

Omg, Narset. I used to have a Narset deck once. Removed the deck since I didn't want people to scoop in turn 2. I used the all-known Enter the Infinite and Omniscience combo, together with Beacon of Tomorrows.

Getting Narset out is you main purpose. You can make your ramp and color fixing as expensive (moneywise) as you want. Using every type of fetch you can helps. Using cards like Lion's Eye Diamond, Crystal Vein, Ancient Tomb, Pyretic Ritual, Simian Spirit Guide, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt or Lotus Petal Will get you there faster aswell, but it comes at a price. Literally.

Once you get narset out, you should be able to swing with her. So haste enablers like Mass Hysteria, Fervor, Generator Servant, Hall of the Bandit Lord or Ashling's Prerogative will definitly help.

The swings are important because you want extra turns, or extra attack phases. (=EXTRA COMMANDER DAMAGE) Expropriate, Temporal Mastery, Walk the Aeons, Time Warp, Time Stretch, Relentless Assault, Waves of Aggression, Seize the Day, Fury of the Horde,...

Essentially you want to cast Omniscience with narset and an Enter the Infinite after that. Swing for 21 commander damage total and win.

"Yeah that is IF you get to cast Omniscience". Just plant it there with Long-Term Plans or use an Enlightened Tutor before you swing with Narset. Find a Long-Term Plans with a Merchant Scroll or Mystical Tutor. Or maybe if you already have an Omniscience in hand, you can use or find a Brainstorm.

Besides the winning part, you have to be able to protect yourself. Defense Grid, Grand Abolisher, Misdirection, Wipe Away, Path to Exile, Force of Will or even an Armageddon or Boom/Bust will help you save your game.

Possibility's are endless. People will be targeting you. People will delete you from facebook. In the end, it's all about the fun. Narset takes away the fun. She's mostly there for competitive play IMO.

Go get 'em tiger. You got this.

This is an awesome deck, I love the theme. Plus 1 from me. Seven Wastes seems unnecessary though. You aren't using any of the (only two) cards that actually care about Wastes. If nothing else, I'd fill some of those slots with budget lands that come in untapped and also produce colorless mana, but have an extra usage if needed. Rogue's Passage is one I highly recommend. Additionally, Shimmering Grotto, Unknown Shores, Dreadship Reef, Crystal Vein, Ghost Quarter, Corrupted Crossroads, Opal Palace, Survivors' Encampment, Crumbling Vestige to name a few.

So I play colorless Eldrazi/Stompy in Legacy..

Until recently I had played 3x copies of Mishra's Factory, but I have been rather underwhelmed by it's performance. Recently I had invested in a 3rd City of Traitors , and took this as an opportunity to replace my Mishra's Factorys; I replaced one with the aforementioned City of Traitors and another with my 4th copy of Wasteland, but this leaves me with the question of what to do with the 3rd Factory? I don't want to invest into a 4th City of Traitors , as I believe that (3) is the correct number to have. I thought about a single Ghost Quarter, but... eh.. I also thought something like a Rishadan Port would be pretty spicy too, or a Crystal Vein for still more acceleration, but I dunno.. Or should I just drop down to 23 lands & replace it with another spell?

In the meantime I've put a single Wastes in it's place, this way I'm at least running A basic land in my deck, but what else can it be? I need another set of eyes on the matter..

Last_Laugh I actually forgot about Mass Hysteria, Ashling's Prerogative, Need for Speed, and Crystal Vein and will prob put them in. I do already have Fellwar Stone and Aqueous Form in my deck but I guess I forgot to update those changes. I plan to swap Gilded Lotus out with Grim Monolith when I can trade for one and I'm looking for a Scroll Rack to trade for as well. I didnt like Basalt Monolith or Worn Powerstone since Basalt only gives colorless as a 3 cmc rock and Worn Powerstone since it enters tapped. Generator Servant I ran for a bit but cut it along with simian spirit guide cause I didn't like the fact that they were creatures and were really dead if I got them after Narset was already out. Pentad Prism and Ancestral Knowledge I never thought about but not I will most likely try to get them into my deck. Thanks for taking a look at my deck and giving me suggestions!

Ok individual suggestions on mana ramp cuts and adds. More additions than cuts here but some of my suggestions are a bit pricy. These will help power out Narset by t3-4 on a consistent basis. Also... why no Brainstorm in your list?

Cut: Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Commanders Sphere, all Keyrunes, Darksteel Ingot, Manalith, and Chromatic Lantern (unless you truly need the fixing).

Add: Mana Vault, Lotus Petal, Fellwar Stone, Grim Monolith, Mana Prism, Mana Crypt, Chrome Mox, Basalt Monolith, Coalition Relic, Worn Powerstone, Ancient Tomb, and Crystal Vein
