I just thought of it as having stionic in place of a card of my choosing each, i may have had strionic or at least i did have copy spells when i first made the deck, i think coppy spells are better because you could potionally copy counterspells.

Yeah i tried a brief 5 runs through with stionic resonator and if i played it from hand it would have made me a turn slower each time and if i got it off top it would have helps me not stall out once, of course an extra turn would have as well.

The only reason why I don't play Timetwister is the price. If you have one, play one fore sure instead of Windfall. Long Term-Plans is a really good tutor for everything you need (removal, extraturn, protection, enabler, wincon etc.). Like you mentioned right, Thousand-Year Storm goes to the same category like Stronic Resonator. In my list it's an enabler. I don't need as much extra turn spells/combat spells like your list, because of those two cards and because of the tutors, the carddraw/the wheel effects.

@ByronTomas: Dude, calm down, let's have a normal card discussion.

At first: 5 games are a pretty small sample size to speak about things and I'm sure you didn't always draw the resonator... Let's just compare strionic resonator with Mind's Desire in a vacuum. It's almost every time better, because you can hardcast it, you can play it before you cast Narset, instead of stucking a card in your hand for 6 mana. Activating the resonator for 2 mana guarantees you almost always a win because you have 2x Narset activations what granting you to look at 8 cards to look for an extra turn spell. Yes the resonator is a bit a win more card, but you have to understand it as a combo piece to ensure chaining into Omniscience. Atleast it's better than Stitch in Time. I don't get your point... after an Armageddon or a Tragic Arrogance there are only a few decks who can recure themselves from that point and against hermit druid or graveyard decks I play Scavenger Grounds or if my meta is full of those decks I tech in cards like mentioned in Metachoices: Rest in Peace or Grafdigger's Cage.

Your Decree of Silence is a very expensive counter against those interactions and does nothing vs a hermit druid^^ But there are some cases where this card finds his place.

May 26, 2020 11:51 a.m.

I said most on my own Narset page, but I can suggest Teferi and Silence, too. You dont need to protect Teferi, because most of the time he protects hisself with the bounce effect or with 5 loyality on turn 2 and the reason to play Teferi is to protect Narset not the other way around. You're complaining about my deck to suffer vs graveyard decks, while you neither have graveyard hate, stax, removal or mass landdestuction... But I like your addition of Decree of Silence and I'm considering to play that, too.

@ByronTomas: Yes indeed, sometimes Footfall Crater can maybe be slow you down. It's in the testing phase. Maybe I'll change back to Ashling's Prerogative... Haste is good and also important, but most of the time ramp is the key. If I ramp fast enough, I get Narset out and have enough mana to protect her. At the beginning of playing Narset I overcomitted and wasted to much slots on haste. every noncreature card is a miss with Narset and in competetive, every suboptimal card can cost you the game, I cutted most of them and build in some counterspells to protect Narset. Yes sometimes they are a miss, too when I exile them with her, but some of them (like Pyroblast) also work from exile. Did you ever test Strionic Resonator? Probably not, because if you ever tested this card, you'll see how insane it is in this deck. You see 100% more cards with your Narset effect, like almost every time. I played the almost equivalent Mind's Desire like you, BUT the Resonator is a lot cheaper and repeatable.

May 26, 2020 7:36 a.m.

Not bad, but you should play more interaction and more ramp instead of all the creature haste enablers. If you want to give your narset haste, then try Footfall Crater and Greaves. Play Pyroblast & Red Elemental Blast because they can protect your narset against countermagic and they are just better than normal counterspells, because if you exile them with Narset you have a target most of the time and not just a dead card.

Very good list! But do you think Snapcaster Mage is worth to play a creature? If you really need recursion, I would rather play Not Forgotten because you can cast it when you reveal it with Narset. Same goes for Memory Lapse, Counterspell & Negate. Pyroblast, Red Elemental Blast and Narset's Reversal are just better because if you exile them with Narset you have a target most of the time and not just a dead card.

@ Annexus: Winds of Change is good, but worse than Windfall, Echo or Spiral, but I listed it on the more "budget" list.

Since I played some games lately, I realized a rise of Opus Thief (and similiar decks) since flash is finally gone.

Because of the new crazy wheel commanders like Rielle, Brallin/Shabraz, Xyris and Gavi I decided to play Narset, Parter of Veils in the maindeck, but what should I cut??

@Annexus:

dude you just try to win with 1-2 attacks. why should I infect my deck with Narset of the Ancient Way? I would rather play Narset, Parter of Veils, Dack Fayden, Narset Transcendent or a card which I completely overlooked Strionic Resonator.

I always wanted to create a more budget oriented Narset-list, but I was really busy. but now I've added a build: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/the-budget-narset-cedh/?cb=1588946647

@Annexus: Yes like you said there's not a really healthy conversation going on on the discord and like you said,

I already exchanged Dack Fayden with Teferi. I get your point with Narset, but I don't know what to cut. Same with Whirlwind of Thought... I think this card is good, but it's always better to just play a turn spell or like you mentioned Narset Transcendent because you can choose, to draw or to rebound a spell.
