Narset, Enlightened Master Discussion

Samus_Saran on Narset and Approach 2nd Sun

1 week ago

If i watch on EDHREC on Commander Narset, Enlightened Master there is standing very high on the List Approach of the Second Sun.

I was first impressed what a cool combo, but later i readed it that Approach of the Second Sun must be casted from the Hand to Win.

So its just Noobs playing this Card on this Commander or is there something I'm not seeing?

hey while looking for a good commander for the Demonic Consultation+Laboratory Maniac or Thassa's Oracle combo and used your deck as a starting point or point of reference, and built a my version of this deck (side note- I built my version in response to a Narset, Enlightened Master ).

Also upvoted your deck, would like it if you checked out my first deck that I put onto tapped out and let me know what you think of it, of course suggestions are welcome for it.

Hey, your eventual goal is good, but you don't have the manabase as part of the goal. The manabase is the part of your deck that needs the most improvement. For instance there's no Command Tower :)

29 basic lands is a lot for a five color deck. With this many lands that only make a single color then without Chromatic Lantern each game you'll have a difficult time having enough color fixing to cast cards. If budget is a consider for lands then my advice is add more Tri lands in place of basic lands. If you're going to play a land that will ETB tapped then Tri lands are the options to choose because having a choice from three different colors is worth the land ETB tapped.

Less creatures is the plan, but Narset, Enlightened Master is worth adding since she can be busted with Planeswalkers and lots of other noncreature cards. With lots of Planeswalkers proliferate is nice, especially when proliferate doesn't cost you any additional mana. Flux Channeler proliferates when you cast Planeswalkers, other noncreature spells. Evolution Sage proliferates when a land you control ETB.

Arcane Signet, Faeburrow Elder and Smothering Tithe are ramp upgrades. These cards are ramp and color fixing which is a good combination with five colors. Elder can tap to up to five mana of five different colors depending on the other colors of permanents you control.

I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

I agree Griff. Uril, the Miststalker, Narset, Enlightened Master, or anyone else with built in protection would be better and allow him to switch out only 1 color. Red also gives access to Smoke which is worth its weight in gold in voltron strategies.

Rafiq is weird that he wants you to go wide in order to attack tall... that's a lot of wasted deck space that could be ramp/voltron cards imo.

Sol Ring lol. Skullclamp.

If you want broken cards just look to the cmdr precon cmdr's.

But the one that comes to mind immediately isn't a cmdr precon cmdr. Narset, Enlightened Master. You really dont need to try hard to make this one busted.

Animar, Soul of Elements is another one that comes to mind. Pretty easy to build around it's one cause its busted.

But all the tutors busted in cmdr. This singleton format was designed without tutors in mind.

Consecrated Sphinx and Rhystic Study and anything else that escalates with the more players there are.

I mean, the easiest way to improve the deck as I see it is to improve the mana situation, both in the lands and in the rocks. For the lands, I suggest cutting one or two, since if you play more rocks (see below) you'll play faster and still have all the mana you need. Fetch lands (like Scalding Tarn or Windswept Heath ) are the easiest way to improve your mana consistency, but unfortunately they tend to be prohibitively expensive. I suggest running more duals like Shivan Reef , Battlefield Forge , Sea of Clouds , etc. instead of your ETB tapped lands like Mystic Monastery .

With regards to rocks, you're already running two of the best ones ( Sol Ring and Arcane Signet ). However, I've never liked 3-mana mana-rocks like Chromatic Lantern or Jeskai Banner , since in my experience things like Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Creativity , Fellwar Stone etc. are simply better. I'd advise increasing the number of cheap (CMC<=2) mana rocks in your deck, as well as cutting one or two basic lands for the same number of cheap rocks. This'll both speed up your deck in the first few turns AND increase the number of hits you get from your general's attack trigger.

Speaking of the attack trigger, consider Strionic Resonator . I play it in my Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger deck, and I've found it to be a pretty good way to press an advantage. Being able to see 8 cards rather than 4 with Narset, Enlightened Master 's trigger seems pretty good.

Depending on your personal theory of ethics, you may wish to consider mass land destruction (MLD) as another method of winning. I personally have no problem with it, but some people might not like it. Anyway, if you want to go that route you should run Armageddon , Cataclysm and (potentially since it's about $100) Ravages of War . Note that Jokulhaups doesn't really work, since it'll kill your general, too.

Wear / Tear is, I think, an auto-include in any deck including Boros colors. It's an extremely efficient method of spot removal.

Reconnaissance is a card you may wish to include, depending on your meta. It'll allow you to attack and trigger Narset even if all your opponents have profitable blockers. Same goes for Maze of Ith .

I've always loved Dack Fayden in EDH. He steals rocks, loots you to where you need to be, and only costs three mana... If you have access to him, I highly advise including him.

Preordain is a good cantrip on par with your Brainstorm and Ponder . While it is admittedly less powerful when it comes to leaving a card you want to cast with Narset on top of your library (since you'd have to scry both to the top), it is a powerful enough turn 1 play that I think you should run it anyway. I have frequently found one-land hands keepable on account of cantrips, and running Preordain will make it that much more likely for you to hit a good opening 7.

The last card I want to mention is Proteus Staff . If you cut all the creatures in your deck except your general (which I honestly think you should strongly consider doing), you can use Proteus Staff to reorder your entire deck. The way it works is this: second main phase, after you've attacked with Narset, Enlightened Master and (hopefully) gotten an extra turn coming to you, you target Narset with the staff's ability. That tucks her to the bottom of your deck, but then immediately finds her again and puts her into play (since she's the only creature in your deck). Because Proteus Staff says to put the other revealed cards on the bottom of your library IN ANY ORDER, you can then put all the other cards in your deck in any order you wish (since your whole deck has been revealed). That means you can stick 4 extra turn spells on top, cast them during your extra turn, rinse and repeat.

Good luck! Hope this helps.

TCG-Player on Balan, Equipment Voltron

Loxodon Warhammer - 2 Mana, -2/+1 stats, + an ability that can completely screw over other Voltron decks ( Uril, the Miststalker ), Narset, Enlightened Master , or decks that run Greaves or Boots .
Yeah, I am definitely sold.Even if it does not end up replacing the Warhammer , I think it earns a slot.
