I have a few suggestions for you outside of the obvious of get more extra combat/turn spells in here.
Generator Servant - haste and ramp in one.
Talisman of Progress , Lotus Petal , Pentad Prism , Basalt Monolith , and Worn Powerstone are all worth it here. Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo on the other hand don't help with a turn 3-4 Narset... they cost too much. Copy Artifact is also worth it here.
Aqueous Form is great evasion here and you can scry before Narset's attack trigger.
Ral Zarek I like here more than Chandra. The untap is handy for things like Mana Vault or for Narset to block and that ult is easy to hit with just a few extra turns.
Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not budget friendly but it's a very very optimized non Omniscience/ETI list. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Ok, with an actual look at the deck rather than a generic list...
Mark of Eviction is another option similar to Spell Tithe, but reusable since it also goes to your hand (granted creatures only).
Imprisoned in the Moon I'd run over Darksteel Mutation. The versatility is worth the 1 extra mana imo.
Talisman of Progress is a good mana rock you're missing.

Fellwar Stone , Talisman of Progress , Crystal Vein , and Generator Servant will help speed things up a bit. Basalt Monolith , Worn Powerstone , and Coalition Relic are 3 drops worth considering also.
Smoke also 100% deserves a spot here.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's an extra turns Narset but still plenty of ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Less lands and more mana rocks. Drop Thran Dynamo though, it costs too much mana. Stick to 2 cmc rocks and 3 is ok if it adds more than .
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration (definitely not budget as a whole, but plenty of reasonable options). Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Chandra585 gave you good advice.
Tezzeret is a little over the $10 limit for cards upgrades, but I think you should make the exception because he really does everything you want with artifact strategies. His abilities are all repeatable that's what makes him so good in Commander. The budget lands that Chandra585 mentioned are also good upgrades. To expand on budget land suggestions consider:
The artifact lands untap by Unwinding Clock. Fair is a great land for artifact strategies.
Other good budget cards for artifact strategies to consider adding are:
- Azorius Signet
- Talisman of Progress
- Basalt Monolith : good with Unwinding Clock.
- Shimmer Myr : flash in artifacts, good with mana rocks and Unwinding Clock.
- Padeem, Consul of Innovation : protect artifacts from targeted removal and can be repeatable draw.
- Treasure Mage : tutor for Memnarch or another high CMC artifact.
- Thada Adel, Acquisitor : she fits with the theme of stealing your opponents cards and the artifact theme.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Azorius Guildgate
- Azorius Chancery
- Evolving Wilds
- Terramorphic Expanse
- Temple of Enlightenment
- Ice Cave
- Ixalan's Binding
- Martial Coup
- Darksteel Ingot
- Worn Powerstone
- Aether Gale

The Talisman cycle is my #1. Orzhov is my favorite color pair. My favorite three color is Esper which gets to use Talisman of Progress and Talisman of Dominance . I want this cycle completed pretty bad.

Biggest 2 for me are the Odyssey Filterlands and the Talismans (i.e. Skycloud Expanse and Talisman of Progress ) which are only available in friendly color pairs. Enemy color pairs and wedges get the shaft and are typically more expensive to build a mana base for.
I understand that 2 drop mana rocks and lands that don't inherrantly tap for mana on their own aren't coming out in a Standard environment and that Commander products only get so many slots for new cards.
But is finishing a cycle really creating a new card? Name it, slap some unused art that's already sitting around on it and voila! I really wish someone in creative (or whatever department) would just ask for a few extra new card slots to finish cycles.
Just make them uncommon in a 3 color wedge Commander product so they each show up in 2 different decks and there's more printed in this instance.
Anyone else have a card cycle that they wish WotC would finish?
