Narset's Reversal Discussion
2 weeks ago
Hey, on a budget well done upgrading the precon. Nice upgrades of Ral with Reverberate/Vengeance for the combo, Settlement/Encampment/Drum, Hippocamp, Brainstorm, Dig, Within, Shift, Passage.
Some budget cards to consider adding:
- Narset's Reversal: can be repeatable for two mana to copy any instant/sorcery that's cast. The copy that Kalamax makes can target and bounce the original Reversal back to your hand to cast again on the next turn and Kalamax can make a copy of one instant on each player's turn.
- Expansion / Explosion: another Fork to combo with Ral or a mass draw/damage spell with lots of mana.
- Gravitic Punch: with Kalamax and a Fork this can kill three opponents and cast it again from your graveyard.
- Cultivator's Caravan: three drop rainbow mana rock that can also be a repeatable source of tap for Kalamax (crew 3 is another instant way to tap Kalamax).
- Return of the Wildspeaker: it can draw a lot of cards with high power Kalamax and/or give Kalamax/Drakes/Birds/Elementals +3/+3 or even +6/+6 to potentially kill one/more opponents.
- Roiling Regrowth: like Harrow, but the lands ETB tapped.
- Cascade Bluffs: Double Masters version is less than $4.
- Shivan Reef: Commander 2020 version is $1.
- Rootbound Crag
- Sulfur Falls
If you like any of these suggestions I offer more advice about what cards to cut. Good luck with deck.

I'm finding building it as a turns/tempo build really helps it slap. Capture of Jingzhou, Part the Waterveil, Time Warp, Nexus of Fate, Temporal Mastery and Temporal Trespass all give the deck this nasty inevitably that feels very close to edric. Maybe also consider Narset's Reversal, Miscast, Mystical Tutor and Vampiric Tutor
For more casual includes

Narset, Parter of Veils - just trust me and try it. The slow grind is very satisfying. Windfall, Winds of Change, Dark Deal, Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fortune are snap includes if you have them. Personal Tutor and Mystical Tutor are both awesome for consistency. Oh and Narset's Reversal is an absolute banger if you have a Library of Leng

I like the decks theme of tokens and the life gain sub-theme. In terms of protection and removal, I would point you to my own Brago deck.
He is more of a control deck (or at least, tries to be) until I can get my little engines online to go for the combo win.
Venser, Shaper Savant, Man-o'-War and Exclusion Mage and some neat creatures that work like the Reflector Mage that you already run. Venser can also be used to bounce any other permanent, which includes lands, if you want to be that guy!
Venser is also a beautiful addition, as it can also put spells back into players hands when it enters. This allows you to stop the uncounterable spells, along with Narset's Reversal.
I hope there are some cards in my list that you may consider adding to your own for more protection. You have a couple in your list that I will be considering for mine. +1 for another fellow Brago player!!

This looks super fun! I wonder if Narset's Reversal would play well with this setup...

From a competitive standpoint the deck is running so little interaction and protection as it stands that it won't ever be able to hold up in competitive settings.
You'll definitely want each of these pieces of interaction in a Kinnan helmed deck at a minimum:
As it stands that won't be quite enough pieces to consistently have the access to permission and protection elements to remain in a competitive position in most game states and these pieces are worth running much of the time:
xNegate xDelay xInto the Roil/2cmc bounce spells (UG has very limited access to tools that can remove hate pieces from the board that prevent a win like Grafdigger's Cage, Notion Thief, or Narset, Parter of Veils.) xBeast Within
As an additional note about competitive Kinnan builds, you can lose the Dramatic Scepter stuff entirely. There's no need in a Kinnan deck. The most effective and efficient method of generating the infinite combo needed to win is any dork that can produce U and G mana combined with Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura. Basalt Monolith is worth running in Kinnan decks because it generates infinite colorless with just Kinnan out on the field also, so you can usually get a couple of Kinnan activations off to dig for Thrasios. For the mana dork complement it's best to stick with BoP, all the 1 cmc tap for G elf dorks, and then a handful of 2 cmc "tap for any color" dorks. The most effective back up infinite mana engines for a Kinnan deck are typically Simic Ragworm or Horseshoe Crab paired with Paradise Mantle and the Monolith (which is often why the deck runs Staff of Domination as an additional outlet that's easy to tutor for in the colors) rather than Dramatic Scepter combo as the Scepter combo relies on density of dorks and rocks to be engaged and this can be more difficult than a less card intensive engine (Crab, Mantle, Kinnan is 3 cards with one from the command zone compared to Kinnan, Dramatic Reversal, Isochron Scepter, 2 mana rocks/dorks at 5 cards to engage) and thus less reliable for the game play patterns Kinnan wants to ideally play from. Shapers of Nature and Thrasios, Triton Hero are the standard outlets that will eventually be found from Kinnan activations that allow you to draw the whole deck. From there winning is easy, so stick to win conditions that are more live than things like Blue Sun's Zenith and run Thassa's Oracle plus a looping mechanism (such as Narset's Reversal and Timetwister or Elixir of Immortality) to use the interaction pieces like Swan Song and Pongify as the win conditions (this helps to avoid other issues too, like not being able to win with Oracle due to Angel's Grace, etc, in addition to improving card slot efficiency). Green Sun's Zenith and Drift of Phantasms are generally considered must runs as tutor options for competitive Kinnan lists, but a good number of quality tutor options are available to provide consistency. Incubation Druid+Vigean Graftmage is somewhat popular as another back up 3 card game winning infinite combo line.
