Narset, Enlightened Master Discussion

Approach of the Second Sun, tada!

And on more on-topic, I'm hoping to see some funny wins with Approach of the Second Sun rather than the general Felidar Sovereign "oops, you didn't attack me enough and now I won"; cause you could end up casting Approach of the Second Sun with a Narset, Enlightened Master EDH deck several times from Narset, but never from hand, until you get the draw spells, forever taunting your opponents with a win in sight.

There's two options i can choose:

  1. Remove those cards you mentioned that rely on having a number of creatures, keep the creature count low (mostly because of Narset, Enlightened Master), add in more board control and try to grab Narset quickly.

  2. Keep the equipments and go heavier on creatures. Narset still work anyway.

i somehow think it's weird to keep the creature-less route going. In any case, i still have to figure out the right creature package to include and which play style.

Regarding planeswalkers, the ones in the deck are those i already got but i don't mind shelling cash a bit if the planeswalker is really fitting (and cheap).

What do you suggest?

I've actually been pretty consistent at outpacing/ignoring Narset, Enlightened Master with my own Breya deck. I didn't really expect this deck to be that powerful, but it is usually!

Narset was my absolute best deck, meant for those revenge kills after a few salty defeats, or to play against more cutthroat playgroups, but Breya has proven just as powerful most of the times, and a lot more fun for everybody, in comparison. I've had people borrow my Narset deck against my Breya deck and I won, whenever I didn't end up mana screwed.

And even if you don't go all in with a big budget for those expensive cards, the deck is actually pretty affordable. I'm shifting my deck a bit more into what yours look like, with less creatures and less token generators, to favor some additional control - if I'm comboing off it doesn't matter if I have 2 Thopters or 20 on the battlefield by that time, it matters if I am still alive. So countermagic, all sorts of removal, Baby Jace, and Torrential Gearhulk, instead of big bombs like Hellkite Tyrant and such. I really wanted to make Blightsteel Colossus work, but then I faced a Sen Triplets deck, filled with Acquire and other theft cards like that. I ended up having to get rid of Blightsteel Colossus 3 times in one game and I still won, but it's more of a liability than a game ender and it's the perfect example of why the more controlling route is probably the best for Breya.

I really liked your list, well deserved upvote ;)

Feel free to check out my own as well, I'm thinking about those changes to my own list so any suggestion is welcome!

Hey @hwagner

Would you be willing to do Snapcaster Mage for your Sylvan Library and Foil Narset, Enlightened Master?

I decided to run a similar build on MTGO, one card I'd recommend is Sacred Ground.

Definitely not a deck meant for fun but incredibly competitive in a Two-headed Giant EDH game as a support deck. And mostly, a really cheap way to get revenge kills after those games you've been the table's punching bag with any other deck.

In paper my personal "revenge" deck is Narset, Enlightened Master, but I've thought about building this one or Talrand, Sky Summoner as well. Ended up doing so on MTGO.

Decrepit_Angel on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

n0bunga I have played hundreds of games with Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, even without the absurdly expensive cards such as Mishra's Workshop (although I did proxy them to see the difference in case I wanted to pick them up one at a time) and I can vouch for the fact that although you will not always have extraordinarily fast hands, Kozilek is much like Narset, Enlightened Master after the loss of partial paris mulligan, which is listed as a tier two deck. Although Kozilek can still function without the commander whereas Narset doesn't do much if someone plays a Moat or Stranglehold.

95+% of the game that I played with the deck, with my initial 7, free mulligan to 7, or mulligan to 6 with scry, I was able to find a hand that could cast an Eldrazi titan by turn 4 at the absolute latest, almost always with haste through a Lightning Greaves effect. I actually started keeping track of what turn I cast Kozilek on when I was improving the list for consistency, and it averaged turn 3. At least 2/3 the time when I played him on turn 2-5 I would also throw out a stax piece like Static Orb or Tangle Wire which almost always resulted in the table conceding.

I get that colorless may not appear to have the consistency of other decks, but given that most games, you will ramp into Kozilek and follow it with stax pieces and additional Eldrazi, there are so many redundant cards in the deck that it was incredibly rare for me to not find the pieces. I have played both Grand Arbiter Augustin IV and Thrasios, Triton Hero decks (based on the ones listed here) and had much more trouble with consistency in those decks that in my Kozilek deck.

And from experience playing against entire pods of competitive tier 1 decks, the combination of stax and Annihilator 4 was enough to lock most opposing decks out of the game, even through disruption and counterspells. The Mindslaver effects just made it easier because I understand how most high tiered decks work and I could use it against them by making their Doomsday pile and not casting the labman or using their Food Chain to exile their commander and not putting it back in the command zone.

And I have asked around with my local cEDH meta (consists of 2 Tazri, 1 Leovold, 1 Prossh, 1 Teferi, 2 Zur, and about 6 Tier 1.5 decks) and everyone agreed that my Kozilek list, even missing the hyper expensive pieces deserved a Tier 2 spot. A few even argued for Tier 1.5 but I don't honestly believe that he is quite as powerful as those due to the lack of good tutors and the occasional issues associated with ramp decks like drawing the wrong half of your deck or specific stax to shut you down.

I am willing to continue discussing if you are not convinced that it deserves the spot.

GS10 on Breya's Bouncing beauties!

I got that feeling, yeah. But in that case look into Flameshadow Conjuring. That's crazy with Panharmonicon getting 4 triggers for each creature you cast and straight up turns Massacre Wurm into a wincon itself, giving everything -8/-8 and 4 damage to everyone else for each creature dying. Even if it doesn't turn on a lot of different win cons right away, it will get you so much more value from all your creatures and blink effects, it's insane. Worst case scenario, it's a second copy of Panharmonicon, for all intents and purposes. Also, you are playing a strategy that's most known to Brago, King Eternal, so it's inclusion might not be a bad thought as well.

I can get behind the plan of a deck just for value and fun, in fact most of my decks were at some point just that. But with the evolution of my playgroup, I ended up looking into more straight ways to win the game. Then I went and made a Narset, Enlightened Master deck and provoked the whole playgroup's wrath, which is why I fully get that resistance to infinite combos.

But anyway, it doesn't hurt to know about different ways the deck can go and additional cards that might improve it (or break it lol).

Hello! Trying to make a strong Superfriends deck with Narset, Enlightened Master. I know I'm leaving out arguably the two best superfriends colors, black and green, but I think it can work.

Here is what I have so far:
