Narset, Enlightened Master Discussion
1 week ago
TL;DRing the responses here a bit for my own sake because it's 4am and I just got home from work lol. But as someone who plays both cEDH and casual, I'd say that a couple important factors to consider are refining your mana curve and narrowing down your themes to ensure that your deck is consistently doing what it wants to do.
By refining your mana curve, I don't necessarily mean to lower it. You want your curve to look more like a positively skewed bell curve (meaning higher densities of low cost spells, and less big spells). This is more of a general rule of thumb in a lot of cases, the exception of which being decks that like to cheat big things out for free or reduced costs, like skilled Narset, Enlightened Master players. ;)
Narrowing down and defining the themes of your deck really helps you fill your slots as well. For example, in my recent Kadena build, I opted to run lots of flash enablers, topdeck manipulators, and cards with bounce abilities, all of which to help abuse her ability and make the deck function how it wants to. In addition to that, I'd say running redundant effects with your commander is often welcome just so that you're consistently doing things you want to do without having to lean hard on your commander being out to do things.
Hope this advice helps a bit!

Narset, Enlightened Master is kinda nice, not for her abilities, but for the access to White. Was also thinking about Marchesa, the Black Rose for the access to black. I am sure this deck will go through some changes as I test play

It's too bad Narset, Enlightened Master has such a bad stigma around her. She would not only be a more fitting Snow White but also give you access to white.

Here's a question: what colors do they already play?
Also, I've had the same issue with my mom (since I play with her and she doesn't like complicated multicard interactions, generally the decks I build are simple enough for her to understand but strong enough to compete) and generally the commanders that I've noticed work best for commanders are the big legends from RTR block ( Isperia, Supreme Judge , Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Rakdos the Defiler , Borborygmos Enraged , Trostani, Selesnya's Voice , Obzedat, Ghost Council , Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , Prime Speaker Zegana , Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , Aurelia, The War Leader) or the first legendary from each of the tricolor decks ( Rafiq of the Many , Sharuum the Hegemon , Sedris, the Traitor King , Kresh the Bloodbraided , Mayael the Anima , Zurgo Helmsmasher , Anafenza, the Foremost , Sidisi, Brood Tyrant , Surrak Dragonclaw , Narset, Enlightened Master ).
None of them are horribly expensive, and you can build fun decks using any of them using simple strategies but the nice thing about them is that you can slowly build them up into better and better decks over time if you like playing them.

My favorite Jeskai (name of red, white, blue) commander is Narset, Enlightened Master . She makes a better extra turns/combat commander but is still a respectable pillow fort option with Ghostly Prison , Propaganda , and Smoke type effects.

(CAUTION: A Huge List of CMDRS dead ahead. If you can't comply, remember that I apologized for the huge wall.)
Well, I was just told how to do a Folder, but to choose what for decks is another thing entirely. Especially if such decks are either:
A: What Everyone Plays B: Are good, but have since been outdated by a year C: Are Tribal Leaders in a Specific Sense (No Morophon, the Boundless please.) D: Not Underdog CMDRs. E: Other.
Let's Just assume we use that cEDH Deck Tier List One-by-One; but w/ a new rule for Playtesting such decks so none of the cEDH Decks win out of overall ratios ~100% of the time; CHANNELFIREBALL-style. That said, From using the Tier List, I require the following CMDR Decks to not have cEDH Level Power, but are these:
The First Sliver (Not as a Sliver Tribe Leader)
Animar, Soul of Elements (Morph Decks not allowed.)
Baral, Chief of Compliance (Get your Counterspells Ready!)
General Tazri (Mandatory Ally Tribe Leader)
Scion of the Ur-Dragon (Possible Dragon Tribe Leader)
Tier 3: WIP
But, yeah, you get the picture, right? Since I can't find such decks on my own to put in such a folder for decks worth testing against your own. Rules are as follows though:
Each deck must not be of cEDH-level power; just imagine how much hell I'd have to playthrough against something just to beat a Thrasios/Tymna Partners deck just to have my claim on this notion nullified.
Decks must include CMDRs that are Popular, were Popular as well as Tribal Decks w/ Good Tribe Leaders (For example: The First Sliver & Sliver Queen do not fit this category where Sliver Overlord does fit the Sliver Tribe Leadership. Scion of the Ur-Dragon & The Ur-Dragon can both count as Dragon Tribe CMDRs. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is actually a bad CMDR to use in Superfriends, but Shines in all Counter Life. Make good use of that instead of making a 4< Color Walkers Deck. The rulings go on...)
I know this is too much for now, but I'm making a folder for Playtesting w/ decks as everyone kept telling me to do so; now I want to hold my end of the Bargain. But I seriously need help from you to do this. If you can find any decks here to add to such a Folder, put it on the comments below.
(& no, It's not like it's a personal thing! Anyone is allowed to use it when it's finished!)
