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.

Haste: Need for Speed, Mass Hysteria, and Hall of the Bandit Lord. If Narset gets removed a lot in your meta... also consider Dragon Breath, which auto-hastes Narset on recast.

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.

Tutors: Long-Term Plans and Personal Tutor

Haste: Need for Speed, Hall of the Bandit Lord, and Dragon Breath (automatic haste whenever you recast Narset).

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

Need for Speed is a card worth considering. It's similar to Hammer of Purphoros , but could be better in your specific deck.

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.

Smoke , Strionic Resonator , Aqueous Form , Spirit Mantle , Steel of the Godhead , and Brainstorm

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

Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor, you may have sold me on Need for Speed . I grabbed a copy in the order I just placed. Hopefully by the end of the week, I'll have the necessary substitutions made to get this deck where I want it to be.

Correct, you will always have to target the previous elemental with Need for Speed and the last elemental created will not have haste. Your other 10-20 will however :). Also, as you might have surmised, this combo is a bit of a glass cannon. If something goes wrong then you just lost all of your lands (though with Lord Windgrace it's pretty easy to recover). I usually like execute this combo with either one or both of Splendid Reclamation and Pyroblast in hand to serve as insurance against Cyclonic Rift or counter magic.
