Narset's Reversal Discussion

Seuchenschutz on Copysaurus

Hi and thanks for your suggestions. Narset's Reversal really is a good card I just missed out. Didnt think of these interactions. Also getting rid of 1-2 fatties might be a good idea while including Chord of Calling . What kept me from adding Mystical Tutor and Worldly Tutor is, that i have to shuffle my library and put the card on top. So copying the spell doesnt work unless I can draw a card in between. Even without the copy potential, the cards are good though, so I will consider playing them. When I first saw the Storm-Kiln Artist in the spoiler, I thought WOW good UC for the deck. But after a bit of pondering, I realized, that I will have a 2/2 critter for 4 Mana without any impact, that will mostly die before creating treasures. So I decided not to play it. Roiling Regrowth and Force of Vigor are worth a bit of pondering, that might be true. Yeah and I already added some of the Lands in the paper version.

Thanks for your help, I really appriciate it!

Hey, you're missing one of the best cards with Kalamax and magecraft, Narset's Reversal . Use Kalamax copy of Reversal to send the original Reversal back to your hand and resolve the copies. With Kalamax it becomes a repeatable Fork that can be major disruption for your opponents. Reversal also combos with Twinning Staff to make infinite copies of Reversal.

Chord of Calling is very good if you want to play big creatures with Kalamax. For nine mana you can tutor for and cheat two 6 CMC or less creatures onto the battlefield. This interaction is popular with the Kiki + Pestermite combo as a win condition. You would be better off playing a few big creatures and instant Chord that has interaction with Kalamax then eight big creatures which is a lot.

Mystical Tutor is an instant tutor to get any two instant or sorceries. Worldly Tutor can get any two creatures. Solve the Equation can also get any instant or sorcery. Merchant Scroll can get any blue instant. Long-Term Plans can tutor for any two cards and with so much draw with Kalamax Plans has less of a drawback. Noxious Revival and/or Reclaim can recur any two cards.

If wanting to make lots of mana than Storm-Kiln Artist can help. His magecraft is excellent with Kalamax and a Fork which creates infinite treasures for infinite mana. Comet Storm becomes a win condition with infinite treasures. Artist is really good with the strategy of repeatedly casting/copying instants by making treasures which is better than just making mana especially with Narset's Reversal . Creating two treasures just by casting Reversal and then if copying an instant you make more treasures as Reversal copies the spell on the stack. Roiling Regrowth is another Harrow for more basic land ramp.

Nature's Claim and/or Force of Vigor is powerful removal with Kalamax. City of Brass , Mana Confluence , Reflecting Pool , Forbidden Orchard , Exotic Orchard are some rainbow land upgrades.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice budget upgrades for the precon. Kalamax is sure fun when playing him with combos in mind.

You cut Twinning Staff from your upgrade? Staff is very good with Kalamax because Kalamax's copy ability triggers it. Staff is busted with Kalamax and a Fork such as Reverberate which is a great upgrade you've made. Kalamax + Reverberate puts infinite counters on Kalamax and if you copied an opponent's spell first such as Cultivate with Reverberate then you can resolve two copies of Cultivate. Adding Twinning Staff takes this interaction to whole other level because you can make as many copies of Cultivate as you want even infinite copies and resolve them.

Twinning Staff has interaction with Narset's Reversal which is another great upgrade you've made. With Staff each time Reversal is copied it makes two more copies and these copies can copy each other on the stack to put infinite counters on Kalamax. Just Reversal + Kalamax is very powerful, but this interaction can't put infinite counters on Kalamax only three counters. It's not infinite with Reversal unless you can make another copy of a copy of Reversal. Staff makes additional copies of Reversal.

Soul's Fire is a good budget win condition after getting infinite counters on Kalamax because it will infinite burn two opponents. With Twinning Staff copying Fire after Kalamax copies it you can infinite burn three different opponents.

Expansion / Explosion is another budget Fork. Consider cutting a few creatures and enchantments to add these three cards?


Kalamax can take real advantage of instant Forks and also just as much with low CMC instants that draw.

These instants help to keep your hand full of instants to have more of them to cast on your opponent's turns. Consider cutting a few creatures and enchantments to add these draw spells?

Good luck with your deck.

"Replaced Merciless Eviction with Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant Reason: The instant speed removal potential of Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant and the several sacrifice outlets in the deck, plus being free with Rooftop Storm , makes this a better include. While the deck can recover from having it's perminants exiled, it isn't something I'm overly keen on rebuilding through.

Replaced Animate Dead with Necromancy Reason: Necromancy lets me return and sacrifice Nevinyrral, Urborg Tyrant during my oppponents' turns, which is awesome. It also gives Nev more flexibility at creating tapped 2/2 zombies following any of their own board wipes.

Replaced Liliana's Standard Bearer with Rhystic Study Reason: Liliana's Standard Bearer is just too situational. I've kept it in my sideboard to help depower the deck depending on the playgroup. I really like it and it does work well with Haakon.

Replaced Gilded Lotus with Ancient Tomb Reason: Having the fast land is better than a 5CMC artifact.

Replaced Mystical Tutor with Leyline of Anticipation Reason: There are too few instant and sorceries for me to be able to justify this. I've found that having the ability to generate infinite mana with Gravecrawler and Phyrexian Altar is much better. Or instant speed wraths with Damnation .

Replaced Scheming Symmetry with Intuition Reason: I wanted to reduce the number of tutor effects in the deck, though I've had a spare Intuition for some time and really wanted to find a home for it. It seems to work really well, especially with Sevinne's Reclamation

Replaced Silence with Trickbind Reason: Silence was there to help me secure the win if I need to go through the Dream Halls but the majority of the time, if I've managed to get down Notion Thief first and wheel, then it does the same effect. Trickbind does also give me protection against planeswalker abilities and most graveyard exile effects.

Replaced Dramatic Reversal with Mind Over Matter Reason: I had looked to play online, with one discord channel advising that I would need to remove the Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo, as it would be too strong. They also told me to remove Mana Crypt , though this is partly a deck designed to use some of my more expensive cards and make Varina as optimized as possible while still keeping the zombie theme. Adding in Mind Over Matter was a lucky find. In order for the infinite loop, I need to discard my deck to my graveyard. I enjoy the 4 blue mana cost, as it's harder to reach that devotion. Thankfully, with the treasure tokens from Smothering Tithe and Replenish to cheat it back into play.

Replaced Isochron Scepter with Emergency Powers Reason: Removing the Scepter makes sense as it's not required for the infinite loop anymore. But I've found that adding a 3rd Timetwister effect means a higher chance of drawing into one following a previous instance, like Echo of Eons + Time Spiral . These work really nicely with Narset's Reversal and God-Eternal Kefnet , as both bypass the exile clause on a lot of these cards - in addition to Teferi's Protection . Being instant speed also gives me a layer of protection against graveyard exile effects."

Hey, you're right Staff does make a copy of the spell you copied with Reversal. You activate Staff to copy Reversal which makes two copies of Reversal and the two copies copy each other on the stack to make infinite copy combo. Activating Staff can be replaced by any other card that can copy Reversal, but that adds another card to the combo.

  • Cast Brainstorm and hold priority.
  • Cast Narset's Reversal target Brainstorm and hold priority.
  • Activate Twinning Staff target Reversal on the stack, copying Reversal twice.
  • Resolve one Reversal copy target the other Reversal copy on the stack, copying it twice, returning original Reversal to your hand.
  • Repeat resolve Reversal copy target another Reversal copy on the stack for infinite copy.
  • End the combo by having Reversal copy target original Brainstorm on the stack, making a copy of Brainstorm, returning original Brainstorm to your hand.
  • Resolve copy of Brainstorm.

The way Narset's Reversal works is the spell that's returned to owner's hand leaves the stack and can't resolve, but any copy of the spell that was made before the spell was returned stays on the stack and can resolve. This lets you return Reversal back to your hand and still resolve/copy a copy of Reversal that's on the stack. The copies don't need the original spell on the stack to copy or resolve.

To make the infinite copy loop you're not copying original Reversal, it's gone from the stack, you're copying a copy of Reversal which is still on the stack. Brainstorm is needed to end the infinite copy loop since you no longer want to copy Reversal. You need another spell on the stack to copy which is Brainstorm.

Hey, well done for your first Commander deck.

Consider adding more one drop spells that can give Veyran evasion? That way she can more easily be a win condition with Commander damage. Having more one drops to cast on your turn to start Fork combos is helpful.


In the description Combos explanations you left out one of the better ones for repeatable infinite magecraft: Veyran + Narset's Reversal + Twinning Staff .

Start the combo on your turn by casting any instant or sorcery and then copy it with Reversal. Copies of Reversal are constantly copying each other on the stack which makes infinite copies. It's a repeatable combo because Reversal returns itself to your hand to cast again on your next turn. Shadow Rift or Slip Through Space are good one drops to first cast to copy with Reversal because it makes infinite power Veyran unblockable. Reversal can return itself as well as Rift or Space to your hand to cast again on your next turn and repeat.

Veyran + Reversal + Staff combo doesn't have to be on your turn. Can do it by copying an opponent's instant or sorcery with Reversal. This doesn't help Veyran to attack, but it can make infinite copies for Ral as a win condition or infinite triggers for other magecraft cards. Veyran + Narset's Reversal + Twinning Staff + Time Warp is repeatable extra turns attacking with infinite power Veyran. Reversal can return itself and Warp back to your hand.

Dualcaster Mage is another card to combo with Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip with Snap for infinite magecraft triggers and infinite storm count because you repeatedly cast Dualcaster. With Veyran this combo is infinite red mana because Veyran triggers Birgi an additional time each time Dualcaster is cast.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, well done so far on a budget. What's Troll 2?

Are you upgrading the Kalamax Commander precon? Or are you building from singles? I ask because I can't tell and there's several good budget cards in the precon to consider adding.

Even if you didn't get the precon all these cards would be upgrades especially the lands.

Some other budget cards to consider:


A more expensive price card to consider is Narset's Reversal . It has great interaction with Kalamax because he makes it a repeatable effect to copy any instant or sorcery an opponent casts. The copy of Reversal that Kalamax makes targets the original Reversal which then sends the original Reversal back to your hand and you resolve a copy of opponent's spell.

Reversal is nice to keep triggering magecraft especially Storm-Kiln Artist since with Kalamax Artist creates two treasures just by casting Reversal and it's returned to your hand. Use those two treasures to then cast Reversal on the next player's turn and repeat each turn an opponent casts an instant or sorcery.

You can do other neat tricks with Narset's Reversal and Kalamax.

  • Twinning Staff makes an infinite copy spell combo which equals infinite +1/+1 counters on Kalamax as well as infinite magecraft triggers.
  • Can use Reversal on your own sorceries to return Reversal and the sorcery back to your hand to cast again and resolve a copy of the sorcery.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey there! Spellslinging is a super popular theme in commander (assuming that's what you're going for), and I have a few options you might want to look into! On a side note, if you like getting suggestions I recommend marking your deck as "help" under its edit settings so people are more inclined to comment on it. Additionally, you can specify which printing when inputting a card, but for Rowan it would be "1x Rowan, Scholar of Sparks (STX:278)".

Commanders:

Will and Rowan are GREAT, but if you'd like, here are a few instant/sorcery matters commanders in ! Most of these are also great cards just in the deck whether you use them as commanders or not: - Veyran, Voice of Duality - Mizzix of the Izmagnus - Niv-Mizzet, Parun (goes infinite with multiple cards such as Ophidian Eye , Tandem Lookout , Curiosity , and more. Especially with something like Laboratory Maniac out) - Melek, Izzet Paragon - Zaffai, Thunder Conductor

Lands/Ramp: Since this would be a spellslinger deck, I'll stay away from too many artifacts, but here are a few ramp cards and good lands to consider!

Some good Instants/Sorceries There's obviously tons upon tons upon tons of these, but here are a few that I enjoy using.

Instants/Sorceries Matter: There are also tons of these, but just to name a few:

I hope this helps! Some suggestions may be out of budget and others may not be, and on the other hand you might have already known about most of these cards, but either way I hope this is of use to you! Be sure to check out some of my decks like Double Trouble EDH ⫸PRIMER⫷, but most of all, good luck on your deck! Have a fantastic day, and happy tapping.
