Urabrask  Flip - bit more mana and damage, eventually can recast all those great spells from the graveyard. Blocks

Blast Zone - a bit of removal in the land base

Geier Reach Sanitarium - maybe loot away extra lands?

Mikokoro, Center of the Sea - not ideal, but mono-Red

Valakut Awakening  Flip - could take a land slot

Shatterskull Smashing  Flip - take a land slot and add more burn

Song-Mad Treachery  Flip - could take a land slot, could steal a big creature and get across the finish line. Expensive, but synergizes with all your instant- and sorcery-stuff

Imodane, the Pyrohammer - huge force multiplier! A win-con. Probably a must-include

Ojer Axonil, Deepest Might  Flip - another force-multiplier. Might be redundant though

Risk Factor maybe? Urabrask  Flip, Electrostatic Infantry, Smoldering Egg  Flip for more creature options maybe. I don't play EDH nor do I have a deck for it so I don't know what type of cards work better in this format so you can ignore me if you want lol. My playgroup has been thinking about it but we just play Modern.

Hypersayia9001 Hi, thanks for your comment.

I cutted Sorcerer Class because it's too slow and Veyran, Voice of Duality because i tried to go more into the combo/infinity game and Veyran doesn't support that in the way i want to.

Isochron Scepter was always destroyed in the moment it lands on the table (my Meta plays a lot of artifact hate) and i never fount the right spell for it, but i like the idea of Narset's Reversal + Extra-Turn. Also since i upgraded the Counter-Section in the last months, the Scepter will have more valuable combos now. Maybe i'll give it a try.

Dramatic Reversal does nothing without the Scepter, so it's a dead card most of the time cause i cant tutor the Scepter. And the need of two mana rocks + Scepter makes it almost impossible to build it up.

Urabrask  Flip is already on my list but atm i don't have one.

Fiery Inscription seems to be an upgrade to Guttersnipe, so, i'll get one soon and give it a try. Unfortunately i think i don't have space for both :(

Let's come to Gamble: I think, i'm not risky enough for it, since i feel really unhappy everytime i play Chaos Warp ^^

I'd see about trying to get Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal. Get them out and just two mana rocks and you have an infinite, have three mana rocks and you're net mana each loop. That THAT'S ignoring having the like of Storm-Kiln Artist involved.

Also, Urabrask  Flip, Fiery Inscription and Sorcerer Class are a good trio of card if you wanna pivot more into Guttersnipe effects, and if you go for that Veyran, Voice of Duality doubles the effectiveness.

If you want/need more tutoring and are willing to take a bit of a risk, Gamble is a decent pick.

This version of Narset looks so fun, man!

One thing that I feel is fundamental when remembering Narset, Enlightened Exile's function as a Commander is that her ability gives you Graveyard hate as well as pseudo card draw by giving you access to your opponent's Graveyards as well as your own, meaning that you will always have card advantage as long as you protect your Commander.

That being said, I would definitely find room for Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Mother of Runes, Giver of Runes, & an abundance of Counterspells. Personally, I don't like spending more than 1 Mana for a Counterspell these days. Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, Dispel, Swan Song & An Offer You Can't Refuse provide a crazy ceiling of value for a single Mana. If you wanted to roll with 2-drops for budget reasons, though, Delay, Arcane Denial, Dovin's Veto & Negate are all easy to cast, & throw a wide net. Misdirection & Bolt Bend are also options here.

Secondly, Narset, Enlightened Exile can only trigger on your own turn, & you need to ensure that everything is going to go as planned. Grand Abolisher & Conqueror's Flail will lock your opponents out of your turn without giving your opponents the same utility like cards like Teferi, Time Raveler & Defense Grid notoriously do. Silence, Revel in Silence  Flip, Abeyance & Orim's Chant can do something similar for 1-2 Mana.

Speaking of Stax, there are a few concise, utilitarian pieces that you may want to consider. Drannith Magistrate, Sanctum Prelate, Archon of Emeria, Lavinia, Azorious Renegade, Boromir, Warden of the Tower, Aven Mindcensor & Containment Priest shut down a LOT of strategies. You'd be surprised how little most decks can do once you take away their ability to cheat stuff in, Tutor and/or cast things for free. Personally, every deck I have is heavily handicapped by all of those pieces. I wouldn't even be able to target them with removal if you played your cards right.

For noncreature Stax, you've got Chalice of the Void, Cursed Totem, Thorn of Amethyst, Deafening Silence, Grafdigger's Cage (which your Commander's ability gets around btw, very strong here), & Rule of Law as a few solid options.

You do need quite a bit more card draw, though. Scroll Rack & Sensei's Divining Top are obviously great, but the level of toolbox utility they actually give you in practice is even better than it seems! Archivist of Oghma, Faerie Mastermind & Ledger Shredder all give you card draw that scales with what your opponents are doing, which is fantastic. Other things like Deep Gnome Terramancer & Wandering Archaic  Flip do the same thing, though they technically aren't card draw. Hell, might as well throw Monologue Tax out there too since I'm talking about scaling.

There's also Careful Study, Frantic Search, Tolarian Winds, Faithless Looting, Cathartic Reunion, Burning Inquiry, Thrill of Possibility & Dragon's Rage Channeler, which are great synergy here!

Speaking of synergy, let's get into that! The foremost synergies for Narset, Enlightened Exile imho is Underworld Breach + Lion's Eye Diamond + Brain Freeze & Intuition, and much of the deck should be geared towards maximizing on that. They're all very easy to Tutor up via cards like Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, Solve the Equation, Fabricate, Reshape, Transmute Artifact, Reckless Handling, Goblin Engineer & Gamble, in addition to being easy to recur via your Commander's ability. It's actually absurd, truly busted. I wouldn't recommend throwing Wheels like Wheel of Fortune or Windfall into the mix, though. They're very overrated, & you can just run Brain Freeze for the combo instead. No need to give all of your opponents a bunch of cards for free if you don't have to! Queen Kayla bin-Kroog is for sure worth consideration, though, if you choose to run Artifact Stax.

Maximizing on Underworld Breach, however, means running Storm. I'd recommend Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip, Storm-Kiln Artist, Urabrask  Flip, Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual & Seething Song to keep your Storm engine from shutting off. I personally don't condone Runaway Steam-Kin, as it's just too freaking slow & conditional compared to other options.

Additional Combat Phases would also be of great use here as opposed to trigger doublers like Strionic Resonator or something. Aggravated Assault, Waves of Aggression, World at War & Seize the Day are the only ones I'd consider running, though. You don't wanna load up on too many synergy effects when you can just Tutor for the best of them when the time's right, ya know?

Since you're running Dockside Extortionist, I'd also consider Cloudstone Curio. With one other Creature (like Spellseeker for example), you can produce infinite Treasures & ETBs with little effort, which is usually more than enough to get you to the finish line.

Your ramp package is looking solid enough, but I'd include 2 more Rocks as well as the rituals I named previously. Fellwar Stone is, functionally, a 5-color Rock for 2 Mana, which is absurd. I tend to not condone 3-drop rocks, with the exception of Chromatic Lantern, which was just reprinted recently and is currently super cheap.

Oh man, now that I think of it Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal gives your whole team infinite power and toughness via your Commander, as well as giving you infinite Mana if you have enough Rocks on the field. Maybe consider it lol.

Monastery Mentor seems to fit like glove here as well, offering some much needed redundancy and a surprising amount of board presence. It's kind of like Deep Gnome Terramancer or Wandering Archaic  Flip in the sense that it just provides waaaay more value while playtesting than you thought it was going to!

Also, consider giving yourself Hexproof with stuff like Witchbane Orb to protect your own Graveyard.

To summarize, I really think your best bet with this one is building a system that gets to either an Underworld Breach + Lion's Eye Diamond + Brain Freeze combo win or an Intuition win as quickly as possible, with other combos like Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter being strong potentialities on the way.

Cheers!

I see that it has been a while since you last updated this deck. If you are still play it, I'm sure you considered Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip, but what about the the alternative with Urabrask  Flip?

Hey!

So, for prioritizing cuts: I'm starting with anything > 1 CMC, since your 1 CMC instants/sorceries are free. Next, I'm thinking of anything that doesn't synergize with instants and sorceries.

Defiler of Instinct - pretty self-explanatory: only interacts with red permanents.

Professional Face-Breaker: Combat damage isn't what this commander/deck/Storm does. For this reason, I'd also drop all 3 of your Battles. Your other opponents certainly aren't going to help you get Invasion of Karsus  Flip to flip.

Ignite Memories: can go. There are better ways to deal damage to players, most of which are already in here.

Goldspan Dragon: this could almost work, but I don't think you have enough instants that target creatures. It's also a bit too tempting of a build around in the 99, IMO. (With it and Urabrask  Flip, you can target it with 2 CMC spells and break even...)

Possibility Storm: am I missing something here?

Price of Glory - depends on how much blue you face, I guess. I wouldn't run it in a deck built around Storm or Instants, but YMMV.

Sunbird's Invocation - just horribly overcosted for what it does, IMO. For comparison, Approach of the Second Sun is 1 more mana to literally win.

Caged Sun - seems like overkill with your commander doing what it does, and probably vastly too slow at 6 CMC.

Helm of Awakening - you barely use generic mana here. I get the feeling this would benefit you least in most matchups.

Liquimetal Torque - ? Yes, you Have Galvanic Blast. Is there anything else I'm missing here?

Hope that helps, GL and happy building!

I only just realized how busted the Backup mechanic is with Rionya, Fire Dancer. Definitely will have to consider Death-Greeter's Champion and Voldaren Thrillseeker for my Rionya list...that is if she survives the strong urge I am having to swap that deck over to Urabrask.
