Cmasa435 on Don't Blink Me Bro!

Basalt Monolith, Clever Impersonator, Augury Owl, Rishadan Footpad, Rishadan Cutpurse, Darksteel Mutation, Mystic Remora, Trophy Mage are all awesome in brago. Stax pieces like Winter Orb, Static Orb, Tangle Wire, and Stasis are perfect for brago also due to him being able to flicker your rocks to avoid you being locked down.

You know, I agree with the instant speed removal. I know that those are better I just was going for the most bang for your buck so to speak. I actually misunderstood Path of Ancestry, I thought it read something else. This is an auto-include in any multi-color deck woops! I'm actually not the biggest fan of Petals of Insight, but with a bunch of mana it does let me go through a lot of my deck, and I don't like the conditional-ness of Theft of Dreams too much. Under the majority of circumstances Mystic Remora is a meta card and not so much a staple, but considering the serious amount of mana this deck makes it won't hurt just having out.

Here are some changes I would make:

The first changes are because I personally think instant speed interaction is better than it being limited to your turn. Second is because Path of Ancestry is strictly better even though it only helps with one creature. Third is because I think Theft of Dreams will be more useful overall. Fourth changes are to implement a new combo with Cloud of Faeries: use the same combo as Drake but if you have two of those enchantments or one with Simic Growth Chamber it will produce unlimited mana.

Besides that, I would maybe find a way to work in Mystic Remora. For beats you could add Executioner's Hood. I'll think about it some more.

Markszncd, how does it feel to be the defacto expert on Narset?

I know it was a small sample size but I was surprised with the Vancouver Mulligan how quick Narset still hits the table. We do use a free first mulligan at our shop.

What is your average gold fish winning turn?

Have you charted how many extra combats, extra turns and land destruction spells Narset averages on her first attack? I would think that countering Narset may not always be the best play. I would consider:

  1. Is Narset attacking turn three or four? I would think a turn three attack greatly increases the need to counter Narset.

  2. The percentages that Narset gets one of the combo spells on her first attack; the percentage she gets two combo spells. This goes to heart of the issue. The other players at the table know that most of the other combos are 100% certain. Narset presents some level of chance to not produce a combo catalyst spell on her attacks.

  3. This dovetails into point one. How often does the Narset player not have to pass the turn after the first attack?

  4. Speed of the table. How fast are the other decks? Has a lot of tutor spells resolved? Has one player been drawing a lot of cards (Sylvan Library, Mystic Remora?

  5. What position in the turn order is Narset? A Narset player that is first or second in turn order that has a turn four attack presents more issues than if Narset is third or forth in the order. The opposing player holding a counterspell can't wait to see if he is going to need that spell to stop the other players that turn.

  6. Most cedh decks on average have only 50-60% of their counter spells that will hit creatures. Some turns you may be the only player holding a counter that can keep Narset from resolving.

  7. How often is Narset recast the next turn she gets countered and does she have haste? Considering Grim Monolith, Mana Vault Lion's Eye Diamond, Basalt Monolith, Generator Servant among others, I assume it less than a third. The better question is how often does the Narset player win after having Narset countered?

ErrorNight on Derevi Prison

Swift2210 I tested all the cards listed above.Mystic Remora is good against storm or control. I fired her, after as I did not pick up a single card for three turns xxxx games.Tezzeret the Seeker it does not harmonize with Gaddock Teeg and have only one target Winter Orb ? (other targets for 5cmc they are stupid to me)I tested Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur combo with Loyal Retainers, Fauna Shaman, Survival of the Fittest they are not worth playing.Rhystic Study maybe someday it will come back to her

The game plan is a quick assumption prison lock, not extending the game with the opponent, especially when we play arch enemy

Indigoindigo on Roon stax

Nice to see more people trying to make an oppressive variant of Roon. You can find my attempt here: Rhinobears Dramatic Scepter.

Renegade Rallier can also maintain Stasis and Mystic Remora and gets back a few more relevant staxpieces.
