Quote from Hype »I'm interested in trying Narset Transcendent in this deck. Esper Mentor seems to fit the three main qualifications for Narset being a good card, namely 1) It's a blue and white deck; 2) It naturally has a high number of nonland, noncreature cards to draw off the first ability; and 3) it has spells that are worth rebounding (Souls seems great but Murderous Cut would be nice in the right situation and even Serum Visions would could let you set up a guaranteed card if you ticked up Narset next turn). Also, the ultimate could actually lock some decks out of the game in Modern as opposed to standard. Off the top of my head, it seems like it would be really good against control decks because they'd be hard pressed to generate enough burn to actually kill the high loyalty and the card advantage would be good.

On a side note, I have come around to lingering souls after playing it a lot more. I was wrong, I AM a lingering souls kind of guy!

Quote from Sasky »I have tested Narset. She's really bad.
Her +1 whiffs a fair amount - and it's back-breaking because you literally wasted a turn.
Her -2 sounds good on paper, but rebound seems to be too slow for this format. I've often stared at my hand and realised that rebounding my spells aren't doing much. Being casted on your next upkeep really sucks.
I'd recommend just sticking to one of the BW Sorins.
I've also tested Myth Realized - it's amazing. The only thing is that I am unsure if 3 or 4 copies is correct. You always want to see it, but almost never want to see multiples.

Quote from Hert79 »I am building this deck as well. Got everything besides the sideboard and the remands. Not sure what I'll play instead of remand. Probably negate since we are already packing so much removal.
Quote from Hype »Seems reasonable. Narset would probably only be a sideboard card anyways as there are too many matchups where she's awful maindeck. What does your list look like with the Myth Realized? I'd like to add 3 (I remember listening to a podcast where Patrick Chapin said that 3 is the ideal number of a card if you wanna maximize your chances of drawing it in your opening hand but not drawing multiple copies throughout the game) but not sure what should get the axe.

What have you cut to make room for Myth Realized in testing?
