ev-ree-wuhnenter image description here Basic Burn Aggro/Glasscannon deck centred on Narset's triggered ability, I guess i can trigger it up to 2 times per hit with Narset, Enlighted Master + Strionic Resonator . I don't really like playing with PWs but do run some, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage and Chandra, Torch of Defiance would be samshing on this (or any) build but are way out of my budget for now.

This is still beta version, I'm testing mana curve and damage output at chaos scenario, due to my play group, ANY sugestions will be welcome, Thanks.

"Mana base" inspired on deck:

Planeswalkers definitely would make your game better, but they're off most Narset decks I've seen, so they're not needed.

You're mana issues are definitely related to those 28 lands. Despite playing you stuff for free, Narset needs to come out as soon as possible and is really prone to getting countered, so you'll both need stuff to do before you cast her and ways to cast her faster again if she gets countered or killed somehow. I wouldn't take the burn route in EDH, but if you want to stick with it I think Narset has got to be one of the better options for it. But run, at least 36 to 38 lands and don't cut on the mana rocks!

Stax cards seem random, so I'd cut them at all and I'd run extra turn effects, especially Beacon of Tomorrows that you can play infinitely with Beacon of Destruction once you get to the end of your deck. The blue one is the one big staple in Narset decks with Enter the Infinite + Omniscience , so that's a way you could go, but Narset actually goes through the deck fast enough by herself, but you really need to play her FAST and possibly even give her haste.

I recommend Hammer of Purphoros, Need for Speed, and Slayers' Stronghold for that hasty Narset. Even though it's a creature, I run Generator Servant for the chance of that early hasty Narset too.

Also Fellwar Stone and Coldsteel Heart can be further budget additions to your mana rock suite.

If you really want to go the Burn plan, I'd definitely focus on card function. You want cards to burn, you want cards to copy burn spells (since in EDH you'll often feel all the burn is short to kill everyone and still deal with creatures) where Geistblast seems to be at it's best, you want cards to allow Narset to trigger multiple times (extra attacks, extra turns), you want ways to defend yourself so probably a bit of a pillow fort theme and some serious token generators like Elspeth, Sun's Champion or Assemble the Legion, and you want ways to keep your Narset from dying, so Aqueous Form, Gift of Immortality, Indestructibility, Spectra Ward...

Check out my deck for additional insights if you want. It's my most recent deck and didn't have a lot of play with it so far, but it's by far my most powerful deck already, because Narset is crazy strong if you make the most of her ability!

GS10 first of all, huge text, thanks; second, I know most of the staple Narset cards for free turns and sustain, in fact, most of them are in my maybeboard. On the other hand, i wasn't aware os Slayers' Stronghold or Geistblast, those are actualy great, as I said i'm testing the mana issues to not rely on mulligans to get enough mana to play the commander, a shame that Tappedout's playtest function doesn't allow players to actually play against each other, so i'm using MWS for those matters. Thanks for the insight, i'll be looking at your list also, thanks.

I also disregarded Geistblast until I had a Mizzix of the Izmagnus player use it on a Part the Waterveil against me. I came home, pulled all my copies apart, and since then I try to find ways to squeeze Geistblast in any of my noncreature heavy decks lol

But about the mana issues: I was running 36 lands plus Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo and Jeskai Banner and it was absolutely impossible for me to do anything in any table where people understood how dangerous Narset is. I ended up bricking at 4 mana most of the times and so I had to adjust. No I run 37 lands (including the guilds bounce lands and Temple of the False God) and a lot more cheap mana rocks. Even like that I play her most of the times by turn 5, 6, which is not by any means desirable for competitive play. Since I play in a very casual group, it kind of works, but it is sub optimal if you're playing against someone with a more competitive build. Just one or two counters to Narset and I'm out of the game. I had to cut a lot of spicy cards, Mind's Dilation was one of my absolute favorite to test out in there, and I had to cut it in favour of more acceleration.
