Narset, Enlightened Master Discussion
17 hours ago
Looking for suggestions and input on my win conditions or my lack thereof. Feel free to tell me how much you hate this deck. I'm open to any and all suggestions and criticism.

My meta has some wild disparities, both between players and between different decks with the same player. The people with turn 3 win decks generally play them only once per night, same for the Narset, Enlightened Master infinite turn deck and the one guy who plays poison. The "competitive" but not lightning fast combo decks and the better non-combo decks range from turn 5-10 wins, with each successive turn providing a greater chance of achieving their win con.
I aim for consistent goldfish wins in turn 7-9, I'd like for that to be 6-8 but my budget doesn't really allow for that. If it takes until turn 10-12 that deck is still playable but relies more on luck and politics to actually win than the speedier decks. Any deck over 12 turns basically has no hope unless I am up against the worst players &/or decks. There are exceptions, of course. Deck styles like control with hard locks that look to grind games out rather than knock someone out immediately would be one.

If you want to truly build jeleva mill rather than storm, id recommend building her similar to a Narset, Enlightened Master deck and fill it with 90% spells like Relentless Assault and Time Warp to maximize her combat casting, or more theft spells to synergize with her library theft

Phyrexian... Idk I guess infect may be something worth looking into. But honestly certain voltron commanders are really awesome for kitchen table.Uril, the Miststalker is fun and some fantastic colors for aura-based voltron. he can even get an enchantress draw engine that really gets things going, with vigilance trample and haste being very available to him.
Sigarda, Host of Herons is by-far one of the better Voltron options due to the innate issue with most voltron decks is that group sacrifice and targeted sacrifice are the bane of your existence
Sram, Senior Edificer is a great one. White has some of the best auras and equipment support. He's cheap to play (and bring back) and is an engine on his own, drawing cards just for trying to do what you're gonna do anyway. Not to mention, your mana base is SUPER easy on your budget.
Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest is one of the most explosive decks out there. having a pump and control base is extremely strong as long as you grab card draw to keep him going, he's quite the powerhouse. Just Distortion Strike + Titan's Strength and you have 18 unblockable damage launching at someone. That was 2 cards you played and 4 mana used. (if he's already on the field) There is a reason some people call him "One Punch Man"
Now if you want the obvious ones, here they are...
Rafiq of the Many is the grand daddy of Voltron as a strategy. Using his own ability to buff himself then having some really solid aura and artifact support. Though, he's got a reputation as a huge powerhouse making you the target almost always.
Narset, Enlightened Master You want to do all the things all the time once your commander hits the field? Narset is pretty much just swing to do what ever the fuck you want. The downside is that you will either use no other creatures, or almost none. She's downright broken, but has so many options open to her. So you could make her a "take so many turns until your opponents die of old age" or "lets make a weird artifact canon cause I can" to "lets play a storm deck" her power and threat level is entirely based on what you intend to do and how you build/imagine the deck.
Finally Zur the Enchanter more like "Zur who gives cancer". this guy most of the time is an enchantment based control deck. where your opponents do nothing while you tutor for any and everything you might need. This guy is super powerful and is banned in 1v1 for a lot of reasons. Just imagine a tutor on a stick to some of the most powerful enchantments. Ethereal Armor, Imprisoned in the Moon, Darksteel Mutation, Karmic Justice, Authority of the Consuls, Phyresis, Stasis, Land Tax Nevermore, Rest in Peace, Propaganda, Solemnity, even Necropotence. Any of these can just be grabbed if needed to answer any threat. while you either kill with commander dmg or stall into a combo. The deck is very rarely not gonna do what it intends to do.
These are some of the better voltron commanders. Personally if you want to use a commander from the Phyrexian blocks.
Urabrask the Hidden can do it.
Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is expensive but a for a reason.
Thrun, the Last Troll is from new phyrexia I'm pretty sure. very safe and regenerate saves auras from falling off of him, makes him a solid pick.

Never thought of that one in particular, but i'm definitely willing to try it out. My Meren deck is often infamous for not letting anyone play after it starts doing it's thing but still be painfully slow to finish up games after that, so I am open to play some combos in it to fasten things up.
More competitively I run Narset, Enlightened Master, Brago, King Eternal and Breya, Etherium Shaper as generals, so I try to keep Meren as fair as I can and the only way to do so is not make it blistering fast ahah

Do you also run Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as her partner? I feel like that would make total sense given the aggressive nature of boros decks
Duelist's Heritage is one I absolutely need to get for this deck! Low-ish cmc and can be used as a political card on opponent's combat phases. The other two are cards that I own, but the avg cmc is so high already I'm worried about the speed of the deck
Outpost Siege has a similar ability to Chandra, Torch of Defiance, and she's going in the deck once I have a chance to sit down and make some changes. If I didn't already own a copy of her I'd likely use Outpost Siege as a budget alternative
@CChaos, wheels scare me too. Also Tormenting Voice and Cathartic Reunion are a good way to filter out crap in your hand, but they don't add any cards. I guess that's just what boros has to work with tho
Thanks again for the comments! Keep em comin!

hikkyu I have her ready to build, but really can't make my mind up what to build cause she has so much option. I think you did a great job though! Dissipation Field is also pretty cool to protect yourself and it sweeps up other enchantments that may hurt you off combos they use.
Knowing my play group and their play style I would have to include more creatures if I ever built around Narset, Enlightened Master

Here's my beloved deck again! I'm trying to make it more competitive! I'm also stuck at 69 upvotes!

Looking to spend another $75-$90 tops on this.
Mainly looking for suggestions in card draw, ramp, lands, and creatures with good mana to power ratios, regardless of any downsides(think Phyrexian Dreadnought).
Any help with this would be much appreciated! this is my first attempt at a competitive deck!
