Chasm Skulker

Creature — Squid Horror

Whenever you draw a card, put a +1/+1 counter on Chasm Skulker.

When Chasm Skulker dies, create X 1/1 blue Squid creature tokens with islandwalk, where X is the number of +1/+1 counters on Chasm Skulker. (They can't be blocked as long as defending player controls and Island.)

Chasm Skulker & Toothy, Imaginary Friend both work well with Tatyova, as they just get bigger and bigger because you’re bound to be getting multiple land triggers per turn, from my experience piloting my deck people are a lot less likely to board wipe when they’ve got a 32/32 chasm skulker to deal with too!

Tishana, Voice of Thunder goes off very well if you cast it after you cast Avenger of Zendikar

Just ideas that have worked well for me :)

thewyzman, I'm glad you liked it. Upvote if you really like! :D I'll take look at your list, too.

Chasm Skulker is another good option to take advantage of all the card draw, and Multani is a house.

Great suggestions in regards to the Panoramas. I can't find a Bant Panorama right now, but have dug up a Naya Panorama and a Jund Panorama that I think I'll squeeze in for the time being.

Looks like a pretty cool Narset deck! One thing though: Solemnity shuts off Chasm Skulker , even if it does work well with Thing in the Ice  Flip.

Tilonalli's Summoner -> Master of Waves --- Make tokens more efficiently

Book Devourer -> Fact or Fiction --- Cute, but it's really slow and expensive

Stalking Vengeance and Bane of Bala Ged -> Saheeli, Sublime Artificer and Chasm Skulker --- Too many expensive 7 drops that get killed before they can do anything. Bring the curve down and add more token production

Surveyor's Scope -> Manifold Insights --- I've always wanted to try this one, and more draw will help more than ramp that often does nothing.

Inspired, I finished my basic build to get me to the table, Tilt for Tat. Admittedly, my list isn't streamlined, and really lacks purpose other than to interact with others and grind out value in mid-range fashion, maybe land a nice C'hoof or something... or build up a fat Chasm Skulker and turn it sideways. I just recently acquired Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar , so there's always that, once I find a spot. Anyhoo, I'm with ya on finding a balance between land grabs and utility cards. The nicest thing about Tat is that she's not a board threat, so she's relatively low on the threat assessment pole, so she survives MUCH longer than my other commanders! .. and drawing cards while gaining life makes grinding it out feel that much better.

Suggestions: Replace Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse with Bant Panorama and another panorama with green or blue, like Jund or Grixis. You still get the double-landfalls, but you can use the panoramas immediately for mana, and just sac them when you need. Also, both Animist's Awakening and Splendid Reclamation were nearly orgasmic when I played them last week (maybe because it followed an opposing hand dump from a discard deck).
