Narset, Enlightened Master Discussion
1 week ago
Hi oftheplural! I like the list you have here. Narset, Enlightened Master is a great spell slinging Commander that just wants to cast spells and attack. I think you could make a few improvements to this deck by throwing in a copy of Sword of Feast and Famine because it can combo with the Aggravated Assault you already have. You can also throw in an Eldrazi Conscription and an Indestructibility as an additional game ender and protection respectively. You can probably take out some of your copy spell effects since you're running so many, so taking a few out shouldn't hurt. Also, if you're going to make this deck in paper and not MTGO, I highly suggest finding alternatives to Capture of Jingzhou and Timetwister unless you wish to drop thousands of dollars on a single Commander deck. I also have a Narset, Enlightened Master Commander deck, however I remade it to be less competitive so my friends like me again. If you'd ever want to take a look at my deck list and use it as an example or reference, you're more then welcome to do so anytime!

Hi Baylez! I really like the deck list that you have here. I used to have a Narset, Enlightened Master Commander deck that was just as competitive as this, but I had to remake it since my friends didn't want to play against it. If you REALLY want to make this deck competitive, you can add Aggravated Assault & Sword of Feast and Famine to make infinite combats as well as infinite turns. If you'd ever want to look at another Narset, Enlightened Master deck for ideas, you're more than welcome to look at my list (even though the power level has decreased to make it more fun).

Hi laborden! I like the list that you have here. The monk theme is a major flavor win. However, I think you're playing too many monks to have Narset, Enlightened Master to be your commander. Typically Narset, Enlightened Master decks are more spell heavy so you're more likely make use of her attack trigger. I would suggest taking out some underperforming creatures in favor of spells like Temporal Trespass, Cyclonic Rift, and Omniscience if you're able to. Or, if you'd rater keep the same number of creatures, you can always switch Narset, Enlightened Master with Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest. He is probably the better Commander that fits within this theme than Narset, Enlightened Master with his Prowess ability and his ability to give other creatures Double Strike. I have a Narset, Enlightened Master Commander deck too! If you'd ever want to take a look at it and use it as an example, you're more than welcome to do so!

Hi MatEffect! I really like this Narset, Enlightened Master list you have here, looks very competitive. I'll have to put Aminatou's Augury in my deck when it comes out too! I used to have a list similar to this one but I had to rebuild it because my friends didn't want me to win with it anymore. If I were to make a suggestion, I would take out Battle Mastery, Flickerform, Proteus Staff, and Insidious Will with Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Omniscience, and Cryptic Command. Also, unless you're planning on making this deck on MTGO, Capture of Jingzhou is WAY too expensive and rare to put into a deck. Part the Waterveil is a much cheaper alternative that only costs one more mana (not like it matters anyway since you're playing Narset, Enlightened Master). If you'd want to use my (non competitive) Narset, Enlightened Master deck as a reference, you're more than welcome to do so anytime!

You want BROKEN?!?!?! Here are a few broken creatures. Narset, Enlightened Master, Arcum Dagsson, Athreos, God of Passage with shadowborn apostles, Diaochan, Artful Beauty, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice infect, Karametra, God of Harvests Enchantress goes broken with pillow forting and I can give you a goo combo for it if interested, Fumiko the Low Blood + goblins, and last but not least Sliver Overlord. And this is in my opinion but just remember. You can have a $1,000 deck but still lose to a $200-300 deck.

SynergyBuild, Gemstone Mine is decent. However, since a lot of Commander games can go on for several turns, I wouldn't want to sacrifice a land after just three turns. Gemstone Caverns is better, but it only has less than a 8% chance of being in your opening hand to get that counter. I could see Gemstone Caverns played in a deck like Narset, Enlightened Master, but not here. They're both just too unreliable in my opinion.

Two stax lists, a midrange list, and five combo lists, all are tier one, and this had not won a single game against them.
I understand that "Competitive is far more than rushing through the first turns for a win, it about gaining of hold of every advantage the deck offers with the given hand and draws." I started this by going over the three competitive archetypes, combo, stax and control, this lists offers about nothing to all three of those archetypes.
Your list runs no powerful combos, no stax locks, and extremely little control. Your commander synergies very little with the deck, and runs no ramp, minimal card draw, and bad countermagic.
Lets take a look at this deck considered competitive:
The best you can do is a Tome Scour, of course this won't mill the card on top, as they did it on your end step, but whatever.
Wow, you have all of 1 card that is actually castable turn 1. Half of your non-land cards require 4+ mana to cast. Many cEDH decks require 3 or less mana to cast every spell in their deck. You run all of 0 pieces of ramp, and no efficient way to win a game against those decks cosnidering even your commander won't cheat them out until turn 8 on your curve.
That is fine though, that means you aren't a fast-paced combo build, it doesn't mean you are not competitive though, stax and control can be great decks, that win very late in the game, turn 8-20 occasionally are when they win.
Stax decks attempt to shut out their combo opponents, you opponent over with Food Chain + Eternal Scourge trying to make infinite mana? Sphere of Safety shuts them down. Try to go off with turns in Narset, Enlightened Master, Stranglehold that. Trying to beat my face in with Blood Pod, Moat that. Then I will go off with infinite flying Pestermite tokens turn 13 with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker after all of you can't do anything.
What does this deck have in terms of stax?
Well, it has War Tax, which require mana that you cannot efficiently use against a Blood Pod deck, as they will stax you out before you them, Armageddon and Ravages of War are a blowout to this deck since you don't run artifact or creature mana. Propaganda would be a better choice, despite not being good enough a choice to make this deck competitive.
Opposition and Aphetto Grifter are decent options for token builds with tons of creatures, on the upkeep of an opponent's turn, you tap down all of their lands, it is pretty good, but as this deck can't do that before it will die, they aren't very good at a competitive table.
Frozen AEther this is truely the best stax you run, it can stop some Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combos, slows down other peoples mana in terms of dorks, rocks, and lands. It is also good as it doesn't affect you, if you could run a Sol Ring, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault or anything to make it come down before your opponents win, then it might be useful.
Fatespinner at least it is in your tribe, otherwise it would just occasionally deny 1 or 2 damage, any time a player needs combat, they win that turn. If they do, they you deny a card, and die immediately after, otherwise they take away a combat they wouldn't need anyway.
Orbs of Warding good card if it was a couple mana less, or you could control/stax a game to pull it off, otherwise it doesn't need to be here.
All in all, you aren't a stax deck, you run little to no good stax cards, the few you run that sees play require ramp.
Well, I guess this is a bad cEDH deck, or control. You run 21 spells that could be used as removal or countermagic, 10 that are 4 or less mana. This is awful for a control deck, unless they are Force of Will and just look like 5 mana, or you run a lot of ramp, sadly neither are true.
Again, this is not a bad deck, simply a casual one, not cEDH material. That is why your list isn't competitive, yes, I have run a spellshaper tribal Damia deck at state level play, not a tournament at state level, just a game at a grand prix side event. That deck isn't good, but it is fun. State level play means nothing. cEDH is actual competitive decks, unlike this one, playing at the upper echelons of the format, in fact, it is so different compared to normal EDH, that is it called cEDH.
This may be winning games where you play, but I have tested it, and I implore you to sit down next to some good stax and fast-paced combo players, against $5600 The Gitrog Monster builds, $6000 General Tazri builds, $5000 Teferi, Temporal Archmage builds, and tell me this deck will win a game against them.
You are wrong, not based on my own opinion, but with playtesting a deck that supposedly wins by turn 10 at the slowest, goldfishing it.
I have yet to see another deck in ALL OF CEDH, that goldfishes a win, or complete stax lock down past turn 6, ever.
Your deck is misleading by using the hub "competitive", all I want is for you to remove it.

cdkime Sorry for bringing you into this after a while, I wanted your opinion on the commander for the Aes Sedai deck.
So, I was thinking of doing a wizard/cleric/warrior tribal to fit the theme. I really don't care about secondary creature type on the cards, just wanted to make it a sort of themed deck.
What's your opinion on choosing one of these for the commander?
