I would like to recommend +4 Scalding Tarn, +4 Steam Vents, +4 Goblin Electromancer, + 4 Manamorphose, -3 Vessel of Volatility, -1 Pentad Prism, -4 Sleight of Hand, -3 Island, -5 Mountain, swap Serum Visions for Preordain (scry, then draw to help on combo turns), or Peer Through Depths (grabs instants or sorceries 5 deep and can use Splice onto Arcane from Desperate Ritual, or even See Beyond (Draw two, then shuffle dragon from your hand into library so it's not stuck).

Hmm.

I think you could improve a lot of aspects of this list without raising the price too much.

First of all, there are much more better mana rocks for what you're trying to achieve, I'd say.

Coalition Relic is the obvious one, but it is somewhat expensive. But honestly, just even Darksteel Ingot would be a slight improvement over for example Manalith. But there are plenty of options there. I would perhaps like to see Pentad Prism as it makes your win-con a full turn faster potentially. Or perhaps even better Rattleclaw Mystic. That card seems like a very good fit here.

Secondly, your mana base is abysmal. You're trying to go off like this with only Forests and a few scattered multi-lands? Seems unlikely. (What are you even playing Evolving Wilds for if you're only running forests?)

I'd remove 4 forests for 1 of each other basic land, at the very least.

I also have a few issues with you running Sylvan Scrying. It's a tool-box card, but it doesn't really help you get to your win-con. You have plenty of lands so you'll never be in shortage. Rampant Growth would be far, far better I'd say.

Also, my final point is that you're pretty slow... Which is fine, but slow decks need to be able to slow the game down to a pace where they can get to their win-con without getting killed on turn 4.

A card like Sylvan Caryatid can help you both ramp and block, (but that card is expensive so I understand if you're not getting it.)

Thragtusk is another tool to help you get there and it is currently very cheap. (Especially compared to its high power level)

Gl with it all.

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.

Tutors: Long-Term Plans and Personal Tutor.

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

I have a few suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category.

Ramp: Drop all 4x rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Arcane Signet, Pentad Prism, Basalt Monolith, Lotus Petal, and Coalition Relic are your best budget(ish) mana rock options you don't already run. Also consider Generator Servant and Crystal Vein.

Pillow Fort: Smoke is amazing here.

Tutor/Topdeck Manipulation: Long-Term Plans and Brainstorm (Dream Cache is another option to get cards from hand on top of your library for free cast).

Auto Haste: Dragon Breath will automatically enchant Narset every time you recast her.

PW: Ral Zarek is handy for his untap ability (Strionic Resonator is easily my favorite target) and his ult is pretty easy to hit for 2-3 extra turns.

Feel free to check out my list for more ideas, it's one of the top rated Narset lists on this site. It's not budget friendly as a whole but still plenty of options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

An opponent could use your blue/black/red lands, and one of your Pentad Prism s to make an Engineered Explosives with 5 counters on it.

The main thing you'll want to do if you decide to increase this decks competitiveness is increase the amount of ramp you have by a LOT. A turn 3-4 Narset should be the goal.

Don't go with the Thran Dynamo/Gilded Lotus you have in your maybeboard though... stick to ramp that costs or less ( is ok if it adds more than 1 mana). Lotus Petal , Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Creativity , Boros Signet , Azorius Signet , Izzet Signet , Fellwar Stone , Pentad Prism , Coalition Relic , Basalt Monolith , and Worn Powerstone are all great mana rocks here that won't break the bank. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are excellent here also.

Smoke is really good in Narset, especially with your Superfriends subtheme.

Aqueous Form allows you to Scry before Narset's trigger so you can dig 5 cards deep while making her unblockable.

Long-Term Plans is an excellent budget tutor here to set up a Narset attack.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's dedicated extra turns/combats and is very optimized. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

I recommend a LOT more ramp. Consider Fellwar Stone , Boros Charm , Talisman of Conviction , Arcane Signet , Pentad Prism , Lotus Petal , Worn Powerstone , Coalition Relic , AND Basalt Monolith . Crystal Vein and Generator Servant also.
