Narset, Enlightened Master Discussion

chronomentro on How does Narset, Enlightened Master's ...

1 day ago

Playing with a friend, I declared Narset, Enlightened Master and Stormchaser Mage as attackers. Doing so immediately exiled the top 4 cards of my library. 1 of the 4 cards exiled was Polymorphous Rush. So our question is: If I cast Polymorphous Rush in order to change Stormchaser Mage into a copy of Narset, Enlightened Master, would the copy trigger 4 more cards to be exiled? Or would it not trigger because attackers have already been declared? I have a feeling that this isn't going to work out how I thought, but my friend and I searched the web for quite a while and couldn't find any concrete evidence. I mean, Stormchaser Mage was tapped and attacking and then changed to the copy before the declare blockers step. The wording of the card is what was confusing us; "Whenever Narset Enlightened Master attacks, exile the top 4 cards..." So, maybe our question is, whats the difference between declaring attackers, and whenever a creature attacks? Thank you in advance for your help!

Last_Laugh on Land destruction: taboo or legit ...

It's taboo and it'll paint a huge target on your back going forward (even with other underpowered decks, you earn a reputation). I've run mass LD before but it was in a deck that already made me public enemy number 1, ran 17 mana rocks, and was able to play spells anyways so it was able to win fast (Narset, Enlightened Master). I felt like a total douche after and only played the deck once every 6 months or so.

I do however recommend running a few spells that can destroy single lands in case someone is trying to do gross things with lands like Dark Depths/Thespian's Stage etc.

Not sure if you are aware but a well made Narset, Enlightened Master deck can consistently play with haste the commander on turn 3 or 4 and win by destroying all lands and taking dozens of extra turns and combat phases. Also Hyper Markov can possibly kill all opponents turn 5 and is one of the best aggro oriented board presence decks I've seen. I don't know how the other commanders stack up in terms of speed of possible win. Obviously all commanders face the possibility of early counters and removal.

If you want to go for infinite turns Enter the Infinite + Beacon of Tomorrows is a pretty easy and nice combo. (I use it in my Narset, Enlightened Master deck). Just make sure you have some way to deal dmg to or mill your opponents!

I would recommend taking something out for Need for Speed, it is an awesome card since Narset, Enlightened Master doesn't really need mana to keep going once she's out.

Razia's Purification has a high mana cost, but because of the possible land destruction it can really lock the board down for a few turns when the three permanents your opponents have can't stop yours. I previously played a Narset, Enlightened Master deck and used Armageddon and Bust as well to destroyed all lands.

I also used Strionic Resonator which could give you a third combat phase with Aurelia, however all your non-vigilance creatures would be tapped during the third combat phase. It's an interesting artifact but I'm not sure it would synergize well enough to include in your deck. Some exert and vigilance based decks exist that you could check out for combat phase ideas.

I also had a Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest commander deck. I play Boros in Modern with the deck Sunshine Burn so that's my background on playing red/white.

Another ridiculous card that you could use is Final Fortune. (also see Last Chance & Warrior's Oath) There are ways to cheat death like playing Angel's Grace or Sundial of the Infinite. Isochron Scepter is a fun card to use with Final Fortune, Angel's Grace, Deflecting Palm, Enlightened Tutor, Balance, Swords to Plowshares, and other sweet instants. These would go well with your Sunforger. Other than Helm of the Host and extra combat phase creatures, do you have ways to gain more or infinite combat phases?

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).
