Narset, Enlightened Master is already Jeskai, she just doesn't represent the red (emotional) side of it. This makes sense as she is one of, if not the, most devoted Monk of all. She would have complete mastery over her emotions and so wouldn't express it.

Hey there!

I think you certainly have incorporated some great ideas by implementing Rat's characteristics into thought-out mechanics. However, I'm afraid that this combination of abilities might yield a scary brew reminiscent to that of Narset, Enlightened Master , but in five colors, for 3 mana, and is unblockable with essentially a guaranteed combat damage trigger. Hexproof making her difficult to remove on top of that makes me a bit anxious about allowing such a card to exist as a commander, even for a Voltron strategy.

I'd be a bit wary of such a synergistic and hard to remove creature. You could perhaps give her shroud instead of hexproof for a thematic effect while detering a gross Voltron strategy in commander. Instead of giving her a combat damage trigger, you could instead give her something to interact with opponents' creatures because her abilities enabled her to attack unsuspecting enemies. Perhaps an Argentum Armor type effect for creatures?

Hey, I_Play_MTG_Arena, thanks for the upvote! I would include Soulfire Grand Master but unfortunately it contains mana symbols that are not in Narset Transcendent . Otherwise a lovely card! Working on an EDH-version of this deck with Narset, Enlightened Master and then of course Soulfire Grand Master is in! Thanks, though!

Rings of Brighthearth does not work with Narset, Enlightened Master , not sure if that’s why it’s there or if it’s for some other purpose. It seems like you’re right on target with most lists I’ve seen. I too am running a competitive Narset, Enlightened Master deck with Enter the Infinite + Omniscience combo into Approach of the Second Sun . Auriok Salvagers seems odd, what is it’s purpose?

Thank you for your input Last_Laugh, I appreciate it. I suppose I hadn’t recognized that Rings of Brighthearth doesn’t work with Narset, Enlightened Master but now that I read it, it makes sense,Thank you. Although my playgroup allows proxies, I want to stray from them just so if I happen to find an event, I want to be able to participate. Of course I’d love to have some of those awesome mana rocks, I’ll have to wait to acquire them. But, the additional extra turn/combat spells are on my radar. For now, I’ll swap out Rings of Brighthearth for Coldsteel Heart or Worn Powerstone

Cool shell so far, but I definitely think it needs more mana ramp. Mayeb 4 more sources of your choice of artifact and land ramp, all probably around the 2-3 CMC slot. Since your deck is light on green I'd go the artifacts that tap for colors like Fellwar Stone , Wayfarer's Bauble , Commander's Sphere , Armillary Sphere , Coalition Relic .

I would look to cut Narset, Enlightened Master and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice . They are funny includes, but they are high CMC and kind of seem like "win more" includes.

Overall I'd look to knock the curve of the deck down a bit. I find decks start to really hum when they are around 3.5 average CMC. With that said, some of the higher cost plane walkers that aren't doing as much work for you might be Tezzeret, Master of the Bridge , Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage , and Kaya, Bane of the Dead ,

I'd cut Nexus of Fate and Knowledge Pool as well unless you plan to abuse them in a way I missed.

And you can find better board wipes than Decree of Pain . is a tall order.

This deck definitely has all the win cons it needs, just make sure you have the card draw and smooth curve to ensure you get to them consistently.

Also, I'd look to add Dack Fayden and Dovin Baan . Both very good effects to drop in the mid game.

Looks like fun deck, best of luck!

Last_Laugh on Choosing a new Commander

One good path for building decks (assuming you don't mind sharing cards or proxying the 2nd copy) is to share as many colors as possible. This makes building new decks a lot less expensive and eventually you have all your colors covered for different strategies and can build just about anything with minimal purchases. I.e. you run Marchesa, so something like Animar, Soul of Elements , Muldrotha, the Gravetide , Queen Marchesa , etc.

My first 3 EDH decks all shared Izzet colors and it made things much easier on my wallet. Narset, Enlightened Master , Marchesa, the Black Rose , and Animar.

I have had success with Dovin's Veto , Liliana's Triumph , and Blast Zone , not really the rest, but did want to know about them.

Dovin's Veto was just incredible, easy inclusion, etc.

Blast Zone was something I dropped a sweeper for. Your list runs Supreme Verdict and Toxic Deluge , I used Yahenni's Expertise and Toxic Deluge , now Blast Zone and Toxic Deluge instead. It has worked out well so far. I have gotten the trigger targetted by a Stifle but Mental Misstep ped it.

My argument for Liliana's Triumph is similar to that of a mix of Grasp of Fate and Diabolic Edict . Well, while Zur fetches GoF, making it pure value, many lists run it as a 3 for one, even when it only is great against one or two opponents, you can still possibly hurt three, even when that may not be the common case.

Instant speed, nontargeted, nearly unstoppable removal (excluding countermagic, Sigarda and new Tamiyo are the extent to which this gets stopped) for creatures, even at two mana can blow out lists like Laboratory Maniac builds, Narset, Enlightened Master , Animar, Soul of Elements (doesn't get effected by Pro-black), Sidisi, Undead Vizier , Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , and Varolz, the Scar-Striped variants. It hits plenty of other decks like Gitrog hard, but is situational.

I think it is really good for that reason, but haven't played it in many games yet, so need to do futher testing to prove anything I said xD!
