Narset, Enlightened Master Discussion

I once played against a Narset, Enlightened Master deck that has every possible extra turn spell in those colors. After the 3rd extra turn in a row, she landed four more just by sheer luck of the draw.

The entire table conceded.

Static Clock



If a player would begin an extra turn, they instead skip that turn.

Let's go again. Good, solid challenge.

Narset, Enlightened Master lets you cast noncreature spells from among the exiled cards. As long as the spell your casting is a noncreature spell, such as Tibalt, Cosmic Impostor , you are aloud to cast it, even it it's a creature card like Valki, God of Lies  Flip. Similarly, if Bonecrusher Giant is exiled you can cast Bonecrusher Giant . This does require the noncreature spell to be cast normally, not with an alternate cost, so you can't cast Hypnotic Siren using bestow.

How exactly does Narset, Enlightened Master interact with the new modal double faced cards? It goes without saying that if the front of the card exiled is a non-creature spell it is able to be cast but what happens if the back is a non-creature spell? Is the back able to be cast in any way with Narset's exiling or is it only the front? I bring this up because with the changes to cascade due to the [Valki, God of Lies]] interaction, it made me wonder how these Modal cards interact with others card effects. Any help would be appreciated.

It will be a 40/4, Evra only gets power equal to your life total.

Which does matter, I've seen Narset, Enlightened Master running Electrify for some reason, which seems like a bad choice, but still destroys your Evra, Halcyon Witness even after the switch xD

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is a land hate deck, turnings your lands and killing them or stealing them. Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose dude combos off with 1 other card and is in black meaning all the tutors you need. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger i never played against it but that ability is pretty good. Arcum Dagsson literally a tutor on a stick, not only does it tutor but it puts the card on the bettlefield. Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker goes infinite. Krenko, Mob Boss built right and can be very competitive. The Locust God infinite plus is very difficult to remove. Narset, Enlightened Master she wins turn like 2-3. some commanders need to be de-ranked and i feel there should be more tiers.

You should go extra turns honestly, thats the most competitive you can get with Narset, Enlightened Master and you need guaranteed mana base. A competitive Narset deck is going to cost a good bit of money though. Also, focus on getting the most out of combat and get extra combats where you can.

Win Cons include:

Thassa's Oracle

Jace, Wielder of Mysteries

Enter the Infinite

Extra turns ideas but not limited to:

Teferi, Master of Time


Temporal Mastery

Creatures to include:

Taigam, Ojutai Master

Grand Abolisher

might as well:

Thousand-Year Storm

Aetherflux Reservoir

Metallurgic Summonings

Assemble the Legion

and of course some tutors:

Mystical Tutor

Long-Term Plans

Enlightened Master

Personal Tutor

I can see the merits of running Rune of Protection: Red but I feel like the second best or stronger is Rune of Protection: White. Prevention of damage can bypass shroud and hexproof creatures and white specializes in Lightning Greaves//Swiftfoot Boots and tutoring those cards with Steelshaper's Gift, Stoneforge Mystic, Open the Armory, etc. which Rune of Protection: White heavily turns off a lot of voltron-style decks. It's also incredible at turning off a lot of other hard to remove EDH generals such as Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Bruna, Light of Alabaster, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Zur the Enchanter, Uril, the Miststalker, Narset, Enlightened Master and Zurgo Helmsmasher. Those generals may be more niche of a damage source than red or green, but that's where the cycling is helpful whereas spot removal can be more effective at dealing with the red and green damage sources.

Rune of Protection: Green I think may be a bit over-valued as the color green I think is a little too good at artifact/enchantment removal, especially when it comes to stapling that effect on their own creatures such as Acidic Slime, Bane of Progress, Caustic Caterpillar, Gemrazer, Reclamation Sage, Sawtusk Demolisher, Trygon Predator, Terastodon, Woodfall Primus. I feel like green could easily remove the rune before you could get much value out of it and that you'd be better off sticking to spot removal. I know white also has enchantment removal but their removal spells I find to be less practical and as efficient as green meaning you wouldn't find as much enchantment removal in a white deck as you would a green deck.

Narset, Enlightened Master is my recommendation. You can build a fairly powerful deck, but the randomness of what she flips off the top in combat is rather fun. Plus if you ever want to upgrade her beyond 'powerfully fun', she can easily go infinite.
