Council's dilemma - Starting with you, each player votes for time or money. For each time vote, take an extra turn after this one. For each money vote, choose a permanent owned by the voter and gain control of it. Exile Expropriate.

Hey guys, I'm finally back in the trading scene after a few month hiatus (didn't expect college to drain me as much as it has, but oh well). I've updated my binder with some neat new haves, most valuable Goblin Guide, Walking Ballista, Champion of Rhonas and a couple other kewl EDH cards.
I'm looking for cards for a competitive Narset, enlightened master EDH deck. Focusing on the nonlands first, in about halfway done - all my wants (needs, really) are listed in my binder. Special priority is given to traders with: Scroll Rack and pretty much any extra-turn cards, like Expropriate or Time Stretch.
Thanks everyone :D

I'm in love with this deck. I played it for the first time with Selvala (grouphug), Depala (never saw that one, it was a very aggressive Vehicle deck) and Erebos.
Selvala made a deal with Depala, who was attacking Erebos early, to finish me off after Erebos and before her. And so she helped her out with Archangel of Strife, Selvala, Explorer Returned, and so on. The Vehicle deck got so much fuel it eliminated Erebos around turn 6 with a Speedway Fanatic and Heart of Kiran, buffed by the Archangel, then Depala turned to attack me.
Fortunately, on my turn 6, I attacked Depala (who was tapped out) with Narset and was that a great trigger. I put Indestructibility on Narset, as well as Steel of the Godhead, I put Strionic Resonator onto the battlefield and cast Temporal Mastery.
Next turn, I cast Oblivion Ring from my hand and copy it with Strionic Resonator, exiling two potential blockers of Depala. Then, I use my Scroll Rack (which helped me immensely after being cast turn 5... thankfully it survived a full circle), and put very good spells on top. And Narset allows me to cast them for free as she swings for lethal commander damage - I cast Expropriate, stealing the biggest creature of Depala and the Archangel of Strife, then I cast Waves of Aggression followed by Izzet Signet and Beacon of Tomorrows. In the next combat, I put Elspeth, Knight-Errant onto the battlefield and cast Fury of the Horde as I attack, allowing me to buff Narset and kill Selvala with commander damage next combat.
I'm certain I will face a lot more hate the next time I play, but this deck can have such explosive turns it's ridiculous. Even if you attack just once, you can win the game off of that one attack. And I love it. I really do.
Anything special from Amonkhet you're considering for this deck?

@Songbird0 It's been a while, hasn't it? Not too much has changed, but I'll go through them :D
Horn of Greed -> Temple Bell I have better control of when the card draw happens, and I think it is psychologically beneficial for me to be the one causing the card draw (if you want I can take more time to explain my thoughts on this). Either way, it also fits the Kamigawa theme better, so I made the trade.
Crucible of Worlds -> Didn't make the cut. I tested this out, and I felt that this isn't the deck for this card. Even with 6 supporting cards (2 fetch lands, my 2 lands that require untapped lands to be sacrificed, Buried Ruin, Trade Routes), there obviously is no guarantee that it will be paired with enough value, especially since my tutors will be looking for some kind of combo win instead. Usually when I drew this, I wanted the card I traded out for it (Expropriate) instead, so I traded it back.
Hinder -> Cloudstone Curio. Hinder was my weakest counterspell, and was an artifact from when tucking a commander was able to be done. I was already thinking of taking it out, and I needed space for this card anyway, so I made this substitution.

@UnleashedHavok Thanks for the feedback.
I was initially running Ashnod's Altar (and Nim Deathmantle), but I found that having a 2 mana sacrifice outlet just felt a lot better, hence Altar of Dementia. That way, you can play it on turn 2 before Alesha comes down, or on turn 4 and still have mana to activate Alesha. It's also important to note that you can (and should) target yourself with Altar of Dementia to give yourself more options in your graveyard. The fact that you can infinitely mill your opponents later on is just gravy.
My rationale for having Mindclaw Shaman over Mesmeric Fiend (or the mostly better Tidehollow Sculler) is that, while they both strip a card from your opponent's hand, Mindclaw Shaman lets you cast that powerful card for yourself. This seems much better to me in a multiplayer environment, where you need to get maximum value out of each card in your deck. It's especially useful when your meta is filled with cards like Demonic Tutor, Time Stretch, and Expropriate like mine is.
I am indeed aware of using the stack tricks for Fiend Hunter, etc. They wouldn't make the deck otherwise, because I don't want cards that are only temporary solutions since removal is so common in commander.
Serra Ascendant is something I'm considering, since I own a couple copies. Just isn't in the deck for now since my meta is so combo-oriented and the lifegain tends not to matter.

Thada Adel, Acquisitor - perfect addition to crew, works great for ramp early on, to grab sol rings, and later great for those big artifacts
Desertion - little expensive for counterspell, but getting someone's creature is great.
Love Expropriate, I am going to have to get one before it gets even more expensive.

Oh, and also getting value from copying instants and sorceries (cough Expropriate). I forgot to include that there even after triple-checking, but that's also there.

Maybe Havengul Lich you dont have alot of creatures so why not use your opponents lol. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur goes with your commander kinda, Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is just another hard creature to get rid of and can change to what you need, I saw you want Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir so why not Seedborn Muse both of them make up Prophet of Kruphix. Sultai Ascendancy and Rashmi, Eternities Crafter help with draw so you know what you are going to draw. Talent of the Telepath lets you play their cards and who know what wonderful things you can get from it hehehe! Expropriate I mean he's on the card and I love this thing if you get to play it its dumb and you have Boseiju, Who Shelters All so it can happen lol. Maybe Seasons Past to get cards back idk. Kruphix, God of Horizons is a good card I think helps with mana and your hand and if they want to get rid of it they have to exhale it. I really like the idea of playing with everyone else deck and your is there to just help you do it. I really like your deck and idea I hope these might help you. Could you look at my deck and see tell me what you think.
Commander / EDH
