  • Dawn Charm is another great fill-in along the same lines as 'pseudo-counterspell'. Real rarity to find counterspell effects in Black or White.
  • I like the idea behind the Emerge Unscathed suggestion, though I feel that Brave the Elements would be more powerful. Rebound is nice, but if it's just in here to act as a kind of counterspell and to upset an opponent's maneuver, then I'm not sure it's worth the sacrifice of just affecting 1 target. It looks like Knight of Malice is your only non-white creature whom it would not hit.
  • If you want to go the Protection route, then you can't get too much better for your mana than Spirit Mantle . I use that one in my "Intense Aura Beatdown" deck and it's quite stellar.

Sovereigns of Lost Alara is really good. Also, I love a good Rancor . Your opponents will have a hard time getting rid of it. Hammer of Nazahn , Darksteel Plate , and Bastion Protector let you attack without fear. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is a great card for EDH. If you want commander damage, Whispersilk Cloak , Rogue's Passage , Spirit Mantle , Aqueous Form , Aether Tunnel , Unquestioned Authority , and Holy Mantle are options. Also Spectra Ward . These are good options for voltron if you go that way.

Hi, thanks for your tip! (; I own every card listed here and will add a maybe-board for the cards i am planing to buy in the next few days. I am aware that some cards (that were inside the precon or i just randomly found at home) have no good reason to be in this deck and will be exchanged as soon as i invest in some other cards. I think cards like that are: Ponder , Entreat the Angels , Predict , Spirit Mantle and Smite the Monstrous ... feel free to correct me if i am wrong. I dont have a strict budget, but i am not planing to invest more than 100-300 dollars for an EDH deck cause that is also the budget range for most people in my playgroup and i am not planing to "out-gear" them heavily.

Feel free to check out the upcoming maybe board and leave suggestions or point out cards which are missing or not important to be inside the deck (:

I'd look into running more mana rocks. Consider Pentad Prism, Talisman of Progress, and Fellwar Stone. I also had great success out of Copy Artifact as a more versatile mana rock. I'd drop Chromatic Lantern as it costs 3 and only produces 1 mana.

Ancestral Knowledge is a wonderful gem here. Mass Hysteria and Ashling's Prerogative are great haste enablers. Aqueous Form and Spirit Mantle are good for combat evasion.

More 2 cmc and less 3 cmc ramp... Generator Servant, Pentad Prism, Coalition Relic, Talisman of Impulse, Lotus Petal, Basalt Monolith and Mana Vault. I'd drop your 3 cmc rocks that only produce 1 mana like Darksteel Ingot, Spectral Searchlight, Manalith, Commander's Sphere, and Jeskai Banner to make room. Your goal should be T3 Narset and 3 cmc rocks that produce 1 mana don't achieve that.

A few cards giving evasion couldn't hurt either. Aqueous Form, Spirit Mantle, and Steel of the Godhead are probably the best options for Narset, especially Aqueous.

Haste enablers are pretty important here also. Consider Need for Speed, Mass Hysteria, and Ashling's Prerogative.

I'd also save up for a Sword of Feast and Famine. It goes infinite with Aggravated Assault and is just a nice card overall.

And last are a few pet cards of mine here. Ancestral Knowledge works wonders at setting up a Narset attack. Bonus Round is probably a bit win-more but does insanely gross things here.

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

Hey there! Building a deck around powerful auras is a consistently strong idea for a deck. To develop it further, I would consider which creatures you're putting those auras on. One of the major problems with aura decks is that when you put a bunch of enchantments on a creature and your opponent kills it with, say, a Doom Blade, your opponent just got rid of a bunch of cards, while only wasting one.

A trick to get around this is stacking your enchantments on cheap creatures with Hexproof. The most famous example is a competitive Modern deck that puts enchantments on cards like Slippery Bogle, Gladecover Scout, or my personal favorite, Silhana Ledgewalker. I really like your idea with using Shalai to accomplish this, but it's easier to just drop all your buffs on a creature that already has the ability.

As for some powerful enchantments to put on creatures like this, cards like Unflinching Courage that you're already playing are awesome, because they both add power and toughness and also grant strong abilities. I'd look for more auras like this. Some of the most powerful auras that the competitive deck plays include Rancor, Spirit Mantle and Ethereal Armor. Another cool set of auras is the Umbra enchantments, like Hyena Umbra and Spider Umbra. These protect your creatures while also giving them bigger buffs.

All the cards I've listed are actually very cheap, both in mana and money-wise. If you want to convert it to a more aggressive deck like I've suggested, I'd replace some of the higher cost cards like Colossal Dreadmaw that don't play into your aura game plan. This would also let you bring down the number of lands in your deck from 26 to around 21-22. Lastly, however tempting it might be to run more than 60 cards in this deck, I'd drop it down to exactly 60. This helps keep your deck consistent and strong.

Hope this helped!

You arent being rude at all. I read about the budget restrictions but its always good to have cards to aim towards as your budget increases, and if we are aiming towards having the strongest build possible eventually, they're cards to aim for. Don't get me wrong, Pack Rat is one of my favorite cards, but personally I have only found use for it in my 8-Ratcks build because it has a strong 8-rack/hand control shell that gives me extra time to use a value generator like Pack Rat. I tried it in my own mono-b aggro deck and found other cards to be more impactful for an aggressive strategy, but for this build im sure it's fine.

That bogles player sounds unlucky. Personally I include Spirit Mantle in my mainboard for my g/w bogle list I play in IRL comp just for the rare instances of weird stuff like Typhoid Rats + Viridian Longbow or whatever jank gets thrown at me, plus its just good for pushing damage against tokens or whatever else if you don't have Rancor in hand. Sorry, could talk about bogles forever.
