Last_Laugh on Make Narset Great Again

2 weeks ago

Several suggestions for you. I'll try to break it down by category. Definitely work on getting more extra combat/turns effects in here though.

Ramp: First, drop all your mana rocks that cost 3 or more. You want your mana rocks to cost 2 or less (3 is ok if it adds more than 1 mana). Drop Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Izzet Locket, Jeskai Banner, and Manalith.

Add: Pentad Prism , Lotus Petal , Coalition Relic , Worn Powerstone , and/or Basalt Monolith . Also consider Crystal Vein and Generator Servant for haste + ramp in one.

Aura/Equipment: With enough ramp you need very little here. Spirit Mantle, Steel of the Godhead , and Aqueous Form should be your main 3. I also ran Indestructibility and Shielded by Faith to help negate most boardwipes. About 6 of these effects tops should be enough and try to keep the cost/equip cost low.

Haste Enablers: Narset not needing to live a turn is huge. Consider Need for Speed , Ashling's Prerogative , and/or Mass Hysteria . Don't lay those last 2 down until the turn before you're ready to attack (at the earliest) though.

I'd also find room for Storm Herd . It speeds up your wins so your opponents don't have to suffer through as many extra turns. Personal Tutor also if it's in your budget.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. The deck is pretty optimized(no enter the infinite/omniscience though). Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Narset, American Beauty - Retired

oliveoilonyaasscureshemorrhoid on Tiana's Enchanting Equipment

2 weeks ago

Hey, I'm an experienced Tiana pilot and would love to help! ( my deck link here ).

The first thing I would change is Wrath of God and Blasphemous Act because creature-only board wipes destroy the creatures, then the auras, so Tiana won't trigger for any of your auras. But board wipes like Hour of Revelation , Day of Reckoning, End Hostilities , Nevinyrral's Disk , Cataclysmic Gearhulk , Tragic Arrogance etc would make Tiana trigger on your auras. You could put in Auratog or Faith Healer so you respond to creature-only board wipes, or put in indestructible stuff like Hammer of Nazahn , Shielded by Faith , Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip etc.

Bludgeon Brawl has cool synergy with Tiana, because if Vandalblast , Scrap Mastery , Hour of Revelation etc are cast, then Tiana will trigger on your artifacts too. And if you include this, consider adding artifacts that sacrifice themselves like Unstable Obelisk , Commander's Sphere , Boros Locket , Boros Cluestone , Orazca Relic .

Along with self-sacrificing artifacts, I loved the idea of self-sacrificing auras and recycling them over and over with Tiana, especially with Sigil of the Empty Throne or Ajani's Chosen on the battlefield. Auras like Capashen Standard , Mortal Obstinacy , Flamespeaker's Will , Brand of Ill Omen , Sun Clasp , Weight of Conscience , Bound by Moonsilver , Lunarch Mantle , Uncontrolled Infestation , Inferno Fist , Guilty Conscience etc.

Other than the aforementioned cards, I'll also mention Mistmeadow Skulk which dodges board wipes, the new Swiftblade Vindicator and Smothering Tithe , Fabled Hero and other heroic cards that benefit from the aura recycling, Forgeborn Oreads and Scroll of the Masters and Mesa Enchantress for the aura recycling, Ethereal Armor , Helm of the Gods , Heavenly Blademaster , Laccolith Rig is stupid but fun, Heirloom Blade because RW sucks at draw (except this deck if you add auras that draw).

If I wanted to cut some cards from your deck, I would start with Order since it's 4 mana for a really narrow removal spell, and 3 mana to do something that odric or angelic skirmisher do (which is creatures so can be brought back into the game easier). Kwende, Pride of Femeref is essentially a 4/4 for 4 mana and is only useful for Tiana. Kitsune Mystic isn't needed with all the sacrificing and such. Authority of the Consuls and Godsend and Basilisk Collar isn't that impactful for an aggro strategy. Whispersilk Cloak gives shroud which isn't the best for a deck all about auras and equipment. Chariot of Victory isn't that good and doesn't add any power. And I would take out as many tapped lands as you don't mind, they slow down decks way too much, add Battlefield Forge .

Hope this helps makes your deck stronger!

FunBun on Uril, Stalker of Mists

3 weeks ago

Thanks for your reply, ghostfire86! My other decks had priority for a bit so only now picking this up again.

Sigarda, Host of Herons is a great card, but I feel it would be too random for my version. Force Sac and Bounce All are the two greatest weakness of the deck obviously. Your version gives you a few options to get Sigarda out when needed and mine is not focused on that. An infinite combo like your deck has is an alternative win but I'd rather lose than adding one. Just something I don't personally like :)

Shielded by Faith is something I would never cast on something as useless as an Enchantress. I prefer the totem armor cards because they are either cheaper or add something extra. If the shield would have had indestructible itself (like Darksteel Plate is) it would be different.

Sram, Senior Edificer is the cheaper option and therefore maybe better. I like the idea that Eidolon of Blossoms lets you draw a card when it enters (unlike Sram) though. Also, when reanimated with Replenish and with it other enchantments it could generate massive card draw.

Greater Good would be an awesome solution for when Uril would get blown to bits. If you at instant speed can draw an insane amount of cards it's easy to get him up and running in no time again without losing pace. Haste is an issue, that is true. I guess I will have to playtest this.

Runes of the Deus is of course steep in price, but this card is made for Uril. It adds flavor and coolness and it should be in there. I understand that other enchantments are cheaper and therefore more competitive, but I am happy with this for at least now.

It looks pretty good to me. How fast is the deck? How long does it take to get moving? It looks to me like it could use more ramp, and I would choose to use some mana dorks for it. Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves, etc would be useful, I think. A card like Cryptolith Rite would turn all your creatures into mana dorks, which might be more what this deck wants to do. Reclamation Sage might be better than Qasali Pridemage, but you'd have to try it out to see. Shield of the Oversoul and Shielded by Faith might be cuttable; they are good enchantments, but they don't fit with your equipment theme. More removal, like Beast Within, might be worth adding.

Like I said, it looks really good, so its hard to make decent suggestions, but I hope they give you some thought.

hkhssweiss on Uril ramp/control

2 months ago

sriah001 Hmm I know you said that a few goals of yours are to control the board through Wraths, but what about just making Uril a huge enough threat where that doesn't matter.

Some card draws I can think right off the bat for Uril are Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, Commune with Lava, Hunter's Insight, Sage's Reverie, Sixth Sense, and Keen Sense.

If your going for more of an enchantress type build there are other card drawing options in terms of Enchantress's Presence, Sram, Senior Edificer, Satyr Enchanter, Mesa Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer, Argothian Enchantress.

Some general cards I would recommend for Uril as well would be: Rancor, Shielded by Faith, Messenger's Speed, Ethereal Armor, Hyena Umbra, and Spirit Mantle.

Hope that helps!
