Star of Extinction Discussion

I feel like Saheeli's best ability is her second by a pretty wide margin, so I think adding higher cmc stuff to cast off that could be good.

Zurgoltron, thanks for your comment, friend! I may have been a little misleading by my $5 price tag -- I meant that I spent $5 on new cards, while the rest was random, seemingly unplayable junk from my collection. I bought stuff like Sunforger and Sigarda's Aid, and also jammed old bulk like Into the Maw of Hell, and it slayed in my casual playgroup to the point where it got a little boring for me. Unfortunately, that means it's been 3 years since this deck was a Voltron build, and I couldn't reconstruct it exactly if I tried.
However, judging from your username, I'd guess you have the basics of a Voltron strategy down to where you wouldn't need my actual list for the basics. I think Narset's real innovation comes when you realize that she can cast complete haymakers (think Star of Extinction, Omniscience, Indestructibility and friends) for free, so your CMC only matters if you can cast her, then keep her alive for a single combat. If you cast Nahiri's Machinations to swing and get two or three CMC>6 hits with her ability, you shouldn't need to worry about much after that except getting hated out.
I hope that helps a bit. In addition, I'd love to take a look at whatever list you've been brewing up and provide feedback based on my Narset experience! Cheers!

So ! First, congratz the deck is pretty original. Glad to see decks like this are played in Standard. Then : I don't think you need to side the Carnage Tyrant. They're always a really good 6-drop. I'd side the Star of Extinction instead. (Even more if your store has a control meta.) And, are you sure 26 lands are necessary ?? It seems like a lot if the deck is based on a creature that gives hp depending on the Converted Mana Cost of cards. Also, what do you think of Sandwurm Convergence ? It'd be a good 8-drop, creating a whole board by itself.

Let's look at taking the deck into some good directions first and foremost.
I'll start with the indisputable, end to all hearsay obvious: The Chain Veil. If you can afford it, get it. Sell/trade the chandra for it, honestly. I'll list a better chandra further down anyway.
Blasphemous act is nice, but it kills all of your shit too, and there are much meaner, still nicely budgeted ways to flip your opponents the bird in an artifact deck, and find synergy in our cards.
Star of Extinction is even worse, it kills Daretti, any boardwipe that kills your own commander when it's a planeswalker and meant to dodge most boardwipes, is awful. Let's knock it out for a card that helps us a lot more:
-Star of Extinction +Mycosynth Lattice, this puppy is a hellish landscape for your opponents, due to how difficult it is to keep out of your battlefield, thanks to daretti's handy graveyard recurrence (or if you have a forge out). It's something we want to work with, fill up our card slots with synergystic artifacts. Now I know what you're thinking, "how does this help me control the board like star and blasphemous?" Why, my monochromatic friend, like this!:
Also, where is your Trash for Treasure? And I know you know you want your graveyard full of presents for you that make Daretti look like Santa Clause, so let's start filling it and cycling through the deck. (remember! Overdrawing is perfectly okay! It might as well be substituted for the term 'card advantage' with this commander). Tormenting Voice Wild Guess Cathartic Reunion Bomat Courier Magus of the Wheel Chandra, Flamecaller (yes, I'm telling you to swap it for your current, more expensive chandra that doesn't help nearly as much with your graveyard synergy)
These two following cards are much more dedicated Daretti discarding versions, I would NOT recommend adding these until you are comfortable with piloting Daretti, and have tailored your deck to cheating out the stuff you're discarding. The Flame of Keld + Dangerous Wager
Next: Value cards & some more combo's now that we've touched on the utility of Mycosynth Lattice and its two best friends.
Pia Nalaar artifact pump that creates you a thopp for sacc? Yeah, get that good shit straight in your mainboard.
Skullclamp (for all the */1's you play)
Thopter Engineer A hasty boi Pia Nalaar
Scrap Trawler literally pure gold, artifact decks should give their right arms before they give up scrap trawler in mainboard
Crucible of Worlds Now you can discard your lands. Literally almost as valuable as scrap trawler. Absolute necessity if you have the budget.
Trading Post Recursion and utility. Marvellous.
Hopefully this list of suggestions helps shape your artifact synergy into a direction you wish to take it!
(you may want to look into infinite mana combo's with Krark-Clan Ironworks or Nim Deathmantle or Ashnod's Altar but I don't seem to remember what to do with them in monored, I just can't remember what you're meant to recur, someone else in the comments should know the combo's.
The easiest thing to do would be chuck a pyretic ritual, desperate ritual, isochron scepter, paradox engine, mana rocks, voltaic key, etc etc and then you can have infinite mana, ping with nin or do whatever insane convoluted artifact combo you want.
Or you can be an insane wank and throw in a grapeshot, mirrorworks and other things that duplicate artifacts, copy isochron with one of your loot cards, draw through your deck with a good 20 loots and 50 or so mana combos, and grapeshot everyone once you find it, but at this point you're turning daretti into a mage and the only thing thematic is his +2 and helping protect/recur your artifact combo's, absolutely nothing else).

@TheBloopKing: I feel like you kind of missed the point of Firesong and Sunspeaker. They're not your traditional Boros commanders like Gisela, Blade of Goldnight and Iroas, God of Victory. They're a combo deck, mean to gain a bajillion life with a Star of Extinction then kill people with Aetherflux Reservoir. Speaking of Star of Extinction, that's a card you should run.

Yes, Nahiri, the Harbinger would be usefull because of her first and second ability. Mizzix's Mastery can be a blowout when cards like Star of Extinction and Price of Progress are in the yard, but maybe I'd have to cut some x-spells to utilize it consistently. Thanks for your suggestions!
