have you thought about Jeskai Ascendancy/Paradox Engine?

I dont know if it'd be strong but it'd be cool to try

This deck was built to maximize the potential of Sunforger, with Wheel of Sun and Moon recycling spells into the library so that Sunforger can cast them again. Jeskai Ascendancy and Paradox Engine can untap our mana creatures and equipment attachers whenever we cast a spell, so we can do it again and again. We can then win by casting infinite instants.

Great deck, I've actually been building a Commander deck with the Sunforger + Wheel of Sun and Moon combo, and also Jeskai Ascendancy and Paradox Engine to untap mana creatures and equipment attachers. Could you take a look and share any thoughts you have?

I have been trying to up the competitiveness part of the deck, which includes getting rid of semi-useful cards which where too specific and had a very limit niche to suit.

I've added the following cards after extensive testing.

Satyr Enchanter, Tamiyo, Field Researcher, Linvala, Keeper of Silence Jeskai Ascendancy & Estrid's Invocation

Heya! Nice Narset deck. I run Narset too; let me make a couple suggestions.

You don’t have a lot of protection against sacrifice, which means Narset can be taken out by something as simple as Fleshbag Marauder. How about mass token generation, like Assemble the Legion or Storm Herd? To be honest I run Dragon Fodder and other low-cost token generators to get bodies on the board early game.

A trick I learned to make Narset deadlier late-game: Use your graveyard to filter out and exile lands, and then shuffle it back into your library. This strategy means you can increase your chances of not whiffing with Narset, and hit the same spell multiple times in a single game.

Perpetual Timepiece is a great example of this. You can filter cards from your library into your grave and reshuffle the noncreature spells only back into your library. It helps if you make use of the abundant Draw, Discard triggers in Jeskai, like Jeskai Ascendancy. To top it off, you can pack Delve spells like Treasure Hunt to exile lands out of your graveyard.

I usually have no problems hitting all 5 colors by turn 5, but thats a bit slow against some decks. Turn 4 is fairly frequent. The fastest I've had this deck go off was turn 3 Time Stretch comboing out before anyone else gets a turn.

Your suggestions are good ones. Jeskai Ascendancy is an all star card, and running Paradox Engine never really occurred to me. I was actually going to use Future Sight and Precognition Field, but I cut them really early on, before the deck really took shape. I should reconsider them and the magus.

On a side note, I'm considering running Enter the Infinite. It has its potential downsides, though.

Thanks for the suggestions. First, my main win con is usually combat damage with a bit of jank thrown in. I use a lot of my spells to keep the board small, but I've avoided running actual board wipes. Its a personal preference thing.

Second, Kiora, Master of the Depths does some self mill, which might not make any sense, but with the cards i'm running for recursion it can actually work out. Cultivator's Caravan can become a 5/5 creature, and that means it interacts with kiora and Jeskai Ascendancy.

Third, Docent of Perfection  Flip was getting cut already. I put Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh in its place.

So, yeah, I guess it is a spells deck with creatures. I'm still working on the mana base, but its been low on my priority list. Any big changes means reevaluating a bunch of other cards, and probably making exactly the cuts you've suggested. I really need to do some live testing first.

More token producers would be good, especially on a stick. Cards like Monastery Mentor do double duty as a chump blocker and a token producer to help you get going in the early game. Jeskai Ascendancy could help you find your early threats as well as pump Narset or untap her after an attack.
