Ok, I can see or idea, but it seems a little desorganized, and can't work as well as it should. I would do a lot of remodeling, so I will try to help you and remember, this are only suggestions and feel free to don't follow them.

First I would take out some cards:

-1 Avacyn, Guardian Angel

-1 Bladetusk Boar

-1 Fanatic of Mogis

-1 Geist of the Moors

-1 Forgeborn Oreads

-1 Resolute Archangel

-1 Spawn of Thraxes

-1 Wall of Fire

-1 Warden of the Beyond

-1 Blastfire Bolt

-1 Starfall

-1 Lava Axe

-1 Mass Calcify

-1 Pinnacle of Rage

-1 Marked by Honor

-1 Spectra Ward

-1 Staff of the Flame Magus

-1 Staff of the Sun Magus

-3 Mountain

-2 Plains

And put Tormod's Crypt on the sideboard

Now you have a deck with 44 cards

As the cards to add, I would put:

+2 Ajani's Pridemate

+3 Nyx-Fleece Ram

+3 Orim's Prayer

+3 lightningbolt

+2 Skyknight Legionnaire

+3 Thundersong Trumpeter

Also, do you have some money to use? If you have there some other cards that can really help you out.

I don't really like Lava Axe it seems too slow maybe more Titan's Strength instead

I feel like the only creatures you should be running are Keranos, God of Storms and Spellheart Chimera , maybe Nyx-Fleece Ram in the sideboard. Exiling counterspells with Narset is wasteful, and everything else really only fits in an aggro build. I'd replace Lava Axe with Stoke the Flames , while it does a little less damage, it can also hit creatures. I think that Cone of Flame is good, maybe go to two, try it and see what feels like. End Hostilities is definitely something you will want to run in a control deck. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is an absolute must for control, it doesn't matter how much she costs money-wise. Banishing Light is also a crucial piece of removal, and Suspension Field may end up being incredibly useful as well, it all depends how well monsters holds up. Deflecting Palm will also be really good against aggro/midrange.

Yeah we're talking Aggro but again it will die to a 1/1 no matter what and you'll still get hit by the damage when the opponent blocks it. Since I run Red Aggro I can Stoke the Flames him with Satyr Firedancer on the field, then his activated ability will trigger I send the 4 extra damage to Firedrinker Satyr and that's 8 Damage for 4 or less mana and you lost a creature. That could easily put him at lethal during the combat step. If I was running Lava Axe and did the same thing that's half his life right there. Even if it was against a control deck they can just bounce him, exile him, block him with a 1/1. EVERYTHING in EVERY DECK kills him and is a detriment to yourself. He's not worth putting in your deck and the only reason he's in Pro decks is because there's no good 1 Drop Red cards currently in Standard. Everyone is going to replace him for Monastery Swiftspear the minute they get their hands on her, I do not doubt it for a second.

You can cast Lava Axe targeting a player, and then decide to redirect that damage to the planes-walker.

It will have the same result as Lava Axe ing a player

First let me say +1 for epic deck name. Narset is a very good general that I thought about building around till I saw Anafenza, the Foremost but thats not the point lol. When I was looking into building a deck for Narset counterspells didn't really come to mind because they are mostly useless if hit by her. Note that these are just suggestions but i would remove all of the direct counterspells then add some of these cards. Psychotic Fury , Rogue's Passage , Mass Calcify (super awesome if you are the only person playing white), also your running burn so the classic Lava Axe won't hurt, also Narset can drop planeswalkers so if you have one or can afford it Jace, the Mind Sculptor would be epic because he can set up Narset with his 0 ability. I can realize you might not be able to obtain him some other good planeswalkers are the new Jace, the Living Guildpact remove blockers, a weaker set up for Narset then his last abilty can basically be a win con depending on the game, Chandra, Pyromaster can stop some huge blockers, remove cards from you library is you want to cast them without narset, or copy the bad ass burn spell ten times or time walks, Ajani, Caller of the Pride , Ajani Steadfast both can boost your general. Elspeth, Sun's Champion helps set up chump blocks for more aggressive creature decks and can boost narset and give her flying. Elspeth, Knight-Errant make chump blockers and make narset indestructible. lastly you could add Electrolyze deal damage and draw cards, Ponder set up narset and draw, Preordain same as Ponder also more unblockable cards so narset does not die during combat Distortion Strike , Artful Dodge can be used twice and Teleportal . Finally I think Quicken would be awesome because you can draw and possibly use that awesome sorcery you need right now during combat. I hope I could help out and have fun Narset looks like an awesome general. Price
