Nice deck, I do have a few suggestions though. Almost entirely ramp options.

Fellwar Stone , Talisman of Progress , Pentad Prism (only 2 cmc rock that ramps 2 colored mana), Copy Artifact , Crystal Vein , Ancient Tomb , and Generator Servant .

I'd also consider haste enablers so Narset doesn't have to survive a turn. Look into Mass Hysteria , Need for Speed , and/or Ashling's Prerogative

Ancestral Knowledge is great for thinning your deck and setting up really really good Narset attacks. Can be used in a pinch to search up early ramp also.

Smoke is also very good here, especially with a superfriends list.

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

I would drop Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, and Chromatic Lantern for lower cmc mana rocks. A good rule of thumb here is cmc 2 or less and 3 is ok if it adds more than 1 mana. This helps you power out Narset early, expensive rocks don't.

Consider Fellwar Stone , Talisman of Progress , and Pentad Prism (only 2 cmc rock that can ramp 2 colored mana). Also consider Crystal Vein , Copy Enchantment , and Generator Servant .

You can start by cutting all the non efficient high CMC cost cards and start adding in the 2 CMC rocks, or if you have the budget the good 0-1 CMC fast mana rocks. Some additional ramp spells will be great to add. Here is a list that can be considered for ramp:

Also the signets can help a lot as well. Look at the colors of your card and see what is your most important ones, than use signets of those colors. Usually it would be W/U/B for most Jodah decks. Hope that can help!

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.

Hey, other competitive cards to consider:

The avg. CMC here is 3.6, that's high for a competitive deck. Most of my suggestions are lower mana cost cards to help to reduce the avg. CMC. Several cards are increasing the avg CMC that you will only be able to realistically cast with a Dream Halls in play. Several of these cards are ones that I suggest you cut.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Memory Lapse
  • Grand Arbiter Augustin IV: he allows your opponents to cast mana cards since they no longer cost 0 mana instead they cost 1 mana. He negates Lavinia ability to counter spells that are cast with no mana.
  • Plea for Guidance
  • Emergency Powers
  • Path to Exile: don't want to give your opponent a land.
  • Always Watching
  • Spear of Heliod
  • Mesmeric Orb
  • Enchanted Evening: don't give your opponents an easier way of beating you by making all your permanents enchantments. Not worth it as a possible win condition with Opalescence.
  • Opalescence
  • Eye of the Storm
  • Sphinx-Bone Wand
  • Enter the Infinite
  • Narset Transcendent: Jace, Karn and Ugin are the most powerful Planeswalkers, they are all you need.
  • Teferi, Temporal Archmage
  • Will Kenrith

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, Delay is a very good counterspell with Lavinia since your opponent can't cast the spell you countered after the time counters are removed since they pay no mana to cast it. Mana Breach and Overburden are opponent land disruption, good interaction with Lavinia. Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study are powerful draw enchantments with Lavinia. Aven Mindcensor, Containment Priest are two excellent hatebear; stop opponent's tutors and reanimation. Talisman of Progress is a two drop Azorius mana rock that always ETB untapped. Whir of Invention, Tezzeret the Seeker and Reshape are ways to tutor for Pool or Omen and put one of them into play. Hallowed Fountain and Adarkar Wastes are Azorius dual lands to consider.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Cancel
  • Annul
  • Coldsteel Heart
  • Felidar Sovereign
  • Fog Bank
  • Guard Gomazoa
  • Sphinx of the Final Word
  • Ixalan's Binding
  • Portcullis
  • Endless Horizons
  • Conclave Tribunal
  • Azorius Guildgate
  • Sejiri Refuge

Good luck with your deck.
