Narset, Enlightened Master Discussion

Rhadamanthus on Distinction between Narset, Enlightened Master ...

In your example:

  • Narset, Enlightened Master allows you to cast the cards from exile without paying their mana costs this turn, but doesn't give any extra permission to cast them at an unusual time
  • Etali, Primal Storm allows you to cast the card from exile without paying the mana cost right now, during the resolution of the triggered ability, but not at any other time

The only reason a player is able to do anything in a game of Magic is because some rule or effect gives them permission to do so (the concept of a "timing restriction" is a bit of a misnomer, as the only true "restriction" in the timing rules is that you can't play a land on someone else's turn). The rules of the game give you the permissions that allow you to do things "normally", but effects from the cards themselves can give you permission to do things in an unusual way or restrict certain things from happening in a particular way.

The "Until end of turn" provision in Narset, Enlightened Master sets up a condition where Narset's ability resolves, then you have cards you can cast under the conditions set up by her ability. Etali, Primal Storm says "exile cards, then cast them", allowing you to cast those spells as part of the resolution of its ability, thus ignoring timing restrictions.

hookedonkronix, unfortunately using Narset, Enlightened Master means a have to take that risk with creatures. Although, I will take your suggestion of putting in more spells that Scry.

First off, I'm sorry to say but your mana is a bit our of wack an not remotely with your colour pie. Basically multiply, say, 18%(your red) times the amount of land. That's the amount that should have red or whatever. the pie chart shows you the card colour percentages for your deck.

Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and to a lesser extent Gaea's Cradle(though probably not in this deck) could help add more accesability to your lands. Fetch lands are also ber important because in 5 colour decks it's not uncommon to be out of one specific colour. Also, most 5 colour decks have no basic lands, which is easily done, It's just a thought.

Atm you don't have a board wipe like Cyclonic Rift, Wrath of God, or Vandalblast. It's pretty standard in spell-type decks.

The much dreaded storm mechanic would be great here imo just because 1/3 of the cards in your deck are instants/sorceries. Even if there were only 4-5 of them, it would slightly improve your chances of success.

I don't understand why Tatyova, Benthic Druid is in your deck, it doesn't seem to synergise well. I think that Jace, the Mind Sculptor would be better because you can hate on somebody or brainstorm every turn.

Beacon of Tomorrows and Expropriate you can obviously cheat. This makes them strictly better than Time Warp for you.

Narset, Enlightened Master would be interesting here, although it may mess a couple of things up. It does cheat mana costs, though. It's just a thought.

I had a very competitive Narset, Enlightened Master edh deck for a while. I'd either be up against seemingly unending counter-magic or sac/destroy effects and never do anything, or the deck would go off and take all the turns or infinite combat phases. Basically either I won immediately or lost immediately. It wasn't very fun for friends and ultimately myself. I took it apart to build a more fun-based four color deck

The build that I have probably 90% finished but can't seem to finalize is Nath of the Gilt-Leaf. Same thing; I imagine it won't be very fun for friends. People don't like discarding their hands to death lol

I read through the description including the omissions category and I didn't see anything regarding Iona, Shield of Emeria. What are your thoughts on this? It is certainly a very hateful card, although a little too mana intensive. However, for an effect that essentially tells players that they can't play magic it has to be useful, unless you deem it as a card that's too evil to even fill a slot haha.

Otherwise I must say that I love this deck. My friend plays a pesky Narset, Enlightened Master infinite turns deck and this deck would completely shut his combo down. A well earned +1 from me.

I would cut some of the less impactful cards and replace them with mana rocks and card draw spells. I'm not sure if the defender & elemental tribal themes are helping at all either, I would cut them all and focus on supporting the dragon strategy. Dragons are great blockers, you just need a bunch of mana rocks to cast them a tad earlier. 2 CMC mana rocks like Coldsteel Heart, Fellwar Stone, Izzet Signet, Boros Signet, and Azorius Signet are best, but any "taps for mana" artifacts would do I think. Looks like it could be a fun deck once it gets going. I would also use smaller cantrips like Brainstorm, Preordain, Ponder, Serum Visions, and Sleight of Hand to help you smooth out draws and find your mana early.

I know I'm suggesting some big changes, but I think they will improve the deck's performance tremendously. Cards I saw to cut in addition to the defender & elemental themes: Narset, Enlightened Master, Crown of Empires, Fortune Thief, Soaring Hope, Earth Rift, and Flowstone Flood.

Really cool idea, I got quite excited and have spent the last 5 hours trying to make a deck...

I used Narset, Enlightened Master as commander and built it more around her, I did however keep your alliteration deck title idea...

So annoying Soulfire Grand Master isn't a legendary!

Bit disappointed with it but here it is
