Worn Powerstone Discussion
4 hours ago
Ahh, a fellow Narset player (or soon to be rather). So I have just 1 question for you... how degenerate do you want to be? This general can range from sorta fun to disgustingly gross.
Posting a link to my list for the gross end of things. The list as a whole isn't budget friendly but it should still give you a general idea and several budget friendly cards. Narset, American Beauty
I also used to run the deck with more pillowfort cards like Ghostly Prison, Smoke, etc. a few years back and it was less cutthroat. https://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/commander-edh/multiplayer-commander-decklists/618968-narset-enchantron
A good rule of thumb with Narset is only run 2 cmc or less mana rocks and 3 cmc if it produces more than 1 mana i.e. Coalition Relic, Worn Powerstone, and/or Basalt Monolith. Those 3 drop mana rocks you have need to go and this isn't the spot for Gilded Lotus or any other mana rock cmc 4+.
I could honestly go on but it's bedtime lol. Check out the 2 lists, it'll help a lot. Good luck and enjoy!

spicy idea: could run Galvanoth.
Love the stuffy doll idea.

TheACTR thanks for the report! I think they''ll be good in some builds but maybe not a great fit in mine.
RobsJourney the deck runs great! Tons of fun to play, it fits my playstyle very well. You can check out some of the games I've played in "The Accolades" section. There are some games where I don't get any ramp and just die to faster decks. 6cmc is a lot for a commander and the deck can get easily outpaced by Mizzix or Ezuri who go infinite often in my meta. But the deck doesn't really need the commander to win, as there are alternative paths to victory like Sunforger or Neheb. But either way I have fun and my playgroup seems to like it so it's good for me :)
Rabid_Wombat That's fair! I use Sol Ring, Generator Servant, Worn Powerstone, and Coalition Relic to get them out turn 4. Works great! And wow! I'm glad the deck has reignited a love for EDH for ya! Thanks, that means a lot!

I like the deck! As far as removal, there's always Devastation Tide and Evacuation and the one-sided Cyclonic Rift - but understand that last one will make you a target REALLY fast. Also see Nevinyrral's Disk just to get rid of pretty much EVERYTHING but Planeswalkers. For more land ramp, you can add a Terramorphic Expanse as well as the usual cadre of ramp spells (you're running green - go crazy with it) like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach and Seek the Horizon among others - just to thin your deck, so you're hopefully drawing answers instead of more lands. If you remove some of the creatures, you could easily make room for the mana ramp cards. Other cheap dual mana could include Simic Growth Chamber and Simic Guildgate if you want to save some money rather than diving straight for Breeding Pool expenses. And a Command Tower never hurts in a Commander deck - probably find one for around $1 (maybe cheaper) in a local shop. Could add some relatively cheap mana artifacts like Worn Powerstone or Mind Stone or Simic Signet or Simic Keyrune that will help things along the way, as well as something like Bident of Thassa for consistent card draw (of course, add things like Trailblazer's Boots (hey, EVERYONE has a nonbasic land or SEVERAL in Commander) or Whispersilk Cloak or Prowler's Helm to get them through - which will assist fatties late-game.

You need more mana acceleration, Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus (just reprinted so much cheaper now), Worn Powerstone and of course being in a green a can't recommend green mana ramp spells highly enough for such a mana intensive tribe so things like Rampant Growth, Harrow, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Skyshroud Claim, Explosive Vegetation and Hour of Promise if you use utility lands or lands like Temple of the False God. If you go for the green mana ramp route I would highly recommend shock lands or any land that has more then one basic land type to make color fixing easier. With enough ramp you could probably safely drop down to 40 lands, also Quicksilver Amulet seems to be ideal for this kind of deck.
You also have the strongest card drawing color in your command, blue. I would recommend also cashing in on this with about 5 card draw spells to help keep your tempo going. Recurring Insight, Rhystic Study, Consecrated Sphinx, Blue Sun's Zenith, Thought Reflection and Mind Unbound are some decent card draw spells in blue.
You might want to remove Coat of Arms as it is more likely to blow up in your face against cheaper tribal creatures or token decks. Try Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots instead to protect your investment and beat face sooner.

Welcome to commander! Since you're new to the format here's some general principles to keep in mind moving forward:
Commander is (with the exception of deliberately competitive groups) a slower format than any other out there. The doubled life total coupled with multiple opponents changes the game from "deal 20 damage" to "deal 120 damage to 3 opponents," all of whom will be building and playing decks with that in mind. If you aren't building to combo out you need to have efficiency and endurance in mind.
Endurance means you need to think long term; build up a mana base to case the kind of spells that will really swing the board in your favor in the mid to late game. Ramping is important; Cultivate is a solid choice since it gives you 2 cards for 1 and puts you a land drop ahead. Kodama's Reach is identical and worth running. Conditional ramp spells like Harvest Season look great on paper, but tend to fall on their face in practice. Not only do you need the creatures in play, you need them to not be summon sick and either tapped from an ability or having survived attacking. Odds aren't good that that you're gonna be able to beat 2 lands (or even manage 1) on turn 4, which is where you wanna be on your curve for dropping your general. You'll probably be better served with other ramp staples like Skyshroud Claim and Worn Powerstone.
Efficiency means sweepers and value. You play one card and get many cards, or your opponents lose many cards. Take Decree of Pain as an example, which is a casual EDH bomb. ETB triggers are great, whether they're giving you a valuable trigger for a common event like Aura Shards or trading the instant they drop like Bane of Progress. Your deck is built to make sacrificial creatures so triggers that give you value for sacrificing your less valuable creatures for an effect like Skullmulcher or Victimize are particularly valuable to you, as are triggers that watch for creatures entering the battlefield or dying like Dictate of Erebos.
Disruption is important, EDH decks are built around synergy and when they get rolling they really get rolling. Night Soil is a good, intuitive choice because, as endurance is so important, recursion is really prevalent in EDH. Cards like Bojuka Bog are coveted for giving you graveyard hate in a land drop. Aura Shards as I already mentioned is invaluable if you're playing a creature heavy deck, if no one at the table can stop an opponent's Birthing Pod or Doubling Season in a timely manner the game is going to go south quickly. Ideally you can answer them in a way that pays itself back like your single Aura Shards or Wrath of God blowing up many targets, but of course you're gonna need some spot removal tool. To that end you either want highly versatile, like Beast Within, or super cheap and going better than "destroy", like Swords to Plowshares or Tragic Slip.
It's late so I'm gonna leave it at that for now, I'll come back around late for some specifics.
