I had the signets in at first, but had to cut 17 cards, to get down to 100, i will switch them back in. Is Pentad Prism that good? After using both charges it won't benefit me any more. Since i won't run big spells and extra turns, i'm not afraid to not play Narset with haste, so I might skip on Generator Servant but I will put it on the maybe board to not forget about it ;) After a few solo playtests I think i can cut Thought Vessel , because i tend to loot often with Jeskai Ascendancy and have less than 7 cards in Hand, i will put Talisman of Progress in in exchange for that.

I left an Upvote for your deck ;) i really like Ancestral Knowledge and will see if I can put it in here!
I will put in the fetches later

Needs more/better ramp. Consider replacing Coldsteel Heart, Chromatic Lantern, Mind's Stone,and underperformers with Boros Signet , Azorius Signet , Izzet Signet , Pentad Prism , Talisman of Progress , Generator Servant , and Crystal Vein .

Feel free to check out my my list for ideas. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Narset, American Beauty - Retired

mumuxx1234567890 Hello! I'm the co-creator of this deck and I've removed the cards you suggested. When you put Pentad Prism like that it does indeed seem bad. Definitely better in another four color "counters matter" commander deck I know. Thank you so much!

Hey ThaneGarrusThanks for the visit :) and the UpVote! :) I appreciate it!

No, I've never considered it, but doesn't Sun Droplet seem a little slow? Or am I reading the card wrong? Great ability to gain 'charge counters' from taking damage, but if you can only remove 1 each upkeep to gain life then it's limited to the number of opponents you're facing, so you can never really max out the potential life gain. If you have 3 opponents you'll only ever gain 4 life by the time it comes back round to your turn no matter how many counters are on it, unless you have upkeep doubling effects Paradox Haze , and life doubling effects Alhammarret's Archive to really make good use of this card. I just don't think I have enough support to make a card like this work efficiently. It would work better in a more dedicated life gain...artifact...angel deck I think especially if you could make use of Resplendent Angel Angelic Accord Bubbling Cauldron Trading Post Would be epic!...chuck some green in there for some extra token doubling effects Parallel Lives to back up Anointed Procession ....ooof! drool! I think I would make that deck =P

Initially however when I first saw your recommendation I thought...hmmm mass counter moving...Is that a thing? If you were able to take damage then gain charge counters you can use Sun Droplet like a battery then use Power Conduit (the only card I could find that could work in this scenario) to move counters from Sun Droplet onto any of our other artifacts/creatures that would love some free counters for mana and card draw. It would be basically the same thing we do with Unspeakable Symbol + Crystalline Crawler / Fathom Mage but very much slower, but it can also put counters on Pentad Prism which is a plus. That would be epic! But I don't have space for these pieces (100 cards and it can never fit everything we want) and to really pull out the potential of this combination of cards...I think I'd probably have to run some untap shenanigans Unwinding Clock . It would be cool to be able to ramp from being attacked with damage, but it would take quite a while to setup. Together powerful, but as separate cards they don't stand very well on their own as they would rely on each other to make any real impact on the game.

Damn I can ramble.... Thanks again for the UpVote! If you were to put in Sun Droplet what would you swap out for it?

Eyh hello man! I’m thinking that you can easily remove New Horizons because it’s a 3 mana card that give you only one counter.

Also, the little Pentad Prism is just too little for what you want. This artifact will enter the battlefield with probably like 2 counters on him, and your commander’s ability cost 2 mana to activate , so it will cost like 2 turns to get only 2 more manas? Isn’t worth it at all. ( turn two tou cast the prism, he got 2 counters. Turn three tou cast your commander. Turn 4 you activate tou commander’s ability on the prism. So, turn five the prism have only 4 counters, and you lost 4 turns to get 2 more mana.)
