Backstabbeth on Narset Twister

I'm working on a Narset deck that is on a much smaller budget, and won't be nearly as fast as your deck, but some fun things are Anvil of Bogardan to keep opponents locked out for cheaper than Teferi's Puzzle Box once they have no cards in hand. Sure Anvil gives everyone no max hand size, but if we play the deck right, we will be the only one who benefits. It's kind of a non-bo in your deck because you are running Cursed Totem but creatures that force other players to loot like Cephalid Broker can keep individual players locked out if we activate them on their upkeep while we have Narset. We can also do this on every opponent's upkeep if we have IsoRev, but there are probably better things for us to be doing if we get IsoRev. It's definitely too expensive for you curve, but The Immortal Sun keeps opponents from activating their Oathbreakers abilities, since we don't really need to be activating Narset much.

The trick would be to do something that forces your opponent to draw a card while the Kozilek trigger is still on the stack, while their library is still empty. Something like Comparative Analysis , Cephalid Broker , Cephalid Coliseum , etc.

Ok, first set of substitutions with the cards I had on hand:

Out: Transguild Promenade, Pulse of the Grid, Well of Ideas, Waterfront Bouncer, Probe, Gravedigger, Fallen Angel, Cephalid Broker, Pestilence Demon, Dromar, the Banisher.

In: Dromar's Cavern, Arguel's Blood Fast, Rhystic Study, Propaganda, Archfiend of Depravity, Kismet, Palace Siege, Treachery, Soothsaying, Sol Ring.

More changes to come. I plan to get the rest of the Maybeboard in here over the course of my next few orders. I probably should find some Signets to run in it, too.

I am considering cutting the following cards:

  • Lightning Greaves doesn't really do much aside from give Leovold shroud and let me swing with a big creature
  • Cephalid Broker useful, but most often than not an annoying topdeck. Curves after Leovold on turn 4 but cannot be used until turn 5 without haste
  • Scavenging Ooze awesome grave hate but useless after something like Time Spiral
  • Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver a win condition on its own, people hate her, but she kind of sits in her own realm and doesn't synergize with anything else in the deck
  • Jace, the Mind Sculptor useful... but very little synergy in the deck.

I'm looking at a couple of routes to go down:

Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

I just remembered I made two decks with a similar style. I used black as a basis for dealing the damage. So I pulled the cards that were not black that could aid you with a different twist on a mechanic.

Cephalid Broker, Cephalid Looter, Reforge the Soul, Shocker, Barbed Shocker, Fire Whip, Viridian Longbow

The Cephalids are just for card swapping, the other two are the meat and potatoes. attach fire whip/Viridian Longbow to Shocker/Barbed Shocker and sit back and watch the hate from the other side of the table.

Aww someone already beat me to it but yes definitely Nemesis of Reason. Maybe even a few Cephalids, Cephalid Broker or Cephalid Looter just to help dig a bit and Llawan, Cephalid Empress if you just wanna be mean to anyone else playing blue. Beyond that everyone already posted what came to mind.
