Telepathy and Need for Speed. They're only one mana, and both feel bad to waste enchantment removal on. I put Telepathy in every deck I can, and Need for Speed in everything outside of Boros, and are frequently one of the best cards on my side of the field. Plus, Need for Speed is literally the best card in my Korvold, Fae-Cursed King lands deck.

@ channelfireball12345 thank you for the suggestion and I get your point but sadly:
The "commander tax" is an additional cost, but it does not affect what a card's converted mana cost is. Converted mana cost is always based on the mana cost printed on the card; it never accounts for effects that add or reduce actual costs to cast something. It's a bit like kicker costs...

Ah yes, Lord Windgrace. Mine is my oldest deck (it was an Adun Oakenshield landfall deck prior to the release of our Cat Lord). One of my favorite win-cons in my list is pairing Titania, Protector of Argoth with Need for Speed or Zuran Orb + Anger.
Feel free to take a look at my list for other ideas if you want: This deck has HUGE tracks of land.

Gitrog combo layering with landsmatter and also dockside temur layering. I'm a big fan of Orcish Lumberjack and glad to see it having a great home here enabling turn 2 Korvolds easily. Also a big fan of all the sacrifice effects on the lands. Underworld Breach is nice tech, same with Cindervines. Big fan of a lot of things I'm seeing here
I would recommend peeking at Life/Death, as it fits as more reanimation for faster comboing with creatures like Gitrog or even your commander if you don't want to pay its cost with tax, but can also give massive late game fuel for Korvold by saccing lands through your creature sac outlets, pretty much as a second Squandered Resources.
Have you considered Hulk? With that many reanimation and sac outlets it can effectively serve as layering for hitting Dockside + Sabertooth or even Gitrog + Putrid Imp.
My last card to peek would be Need for Speed. It allows you to attack same turn as casting Korvold to potentially kill a player outright with commander damage. Also allows you to kill with Glint-Horn Buccaneer after you infinite mana and draw your deck, which would be helpful as another line to get a player who has hexproof or shroud against Mayhem Devil. The haste also helps your mana dorks by allowing you to storm off with Korvold draws if you are in a board position to dig. Also makes Fauna Shaman much more live
Very nice work!

This is a nice list. I do have a few suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.
Ramp: I'm not a fan of either Gilded Lotus or Thran Dynamo here... they don't really ramp you into Narset. Consider Pentad Prism (only 2 drop rock that'll ramp 2 different colored mana in the same turn... albeit once). Copy Artifact copies mana rocks (or an extra Strionic Resonator for extra combats). Coalition Relic and Worn Powerstone are other mana rock options. Crystal Vein and Ancient Tomb are 2 good land options here also.
Pillowfort: Smoke is worth its weight in gold here. You probably have enough extra turns/combats that you can drop the Propaganda/Ghostly Prison though.

Main thing I'm seeing is your ramp needs some TLC. As the previous poster stated... avoid mana rocks that cost + but only add 1 mana and drop Gilded Lotus. Lotus Petal, Azorius Signet, Boros Signet, Izzet Signet, Pentad Prism, Talisman of Conviction, Coalition Relic, Basalt Monolith, and Worn Powerstone are all better options. Also consider Generator Servant and Crystal Vein.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not budget friendly as a whole but still plenty of budget options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

I'm honestly not sure where this thing is going. I hope you play in a small playgroup though... strangers see Narset and you're automatically public enemy number one.
I have a few suggestions that're good in pretty much every Narset list.
I'd also consider more mana rocks/ramp and a few ways to give haste. Pentad Prism , Lotus Petal , Fellwar Stone , Ancient Tomb , Crystal Vein , Generator Servant , and Need for Speed . Dragon Breath is also nice as it comes back from the grave automatically whenever you recast Narset.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's a very tuned extra turns/combats list but it still might give you a few cards to use. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty
