Greetings again, friends and Planeswalkers! Kel here (also known as RedZoneMTG on YouTube and Twitter). Today, I have a deck tech featuring the dreaded Narset, Parter of Veils !
When I first saw Narset, Parter of Veils  spoiled during the War of the Spark spoiler season, I knew it would have a huge impact on Oathbreaker. Some folks immediately called for bans on cards like Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God  (who is actually very fun as an Oathbreaker) or The Elderspell , but I had my eyes squarely fixed upon the innocuous uncommon Narset. I thought back to how unfun Leovold, Emissary of Trest  was in commander before he got banned and wondered if Narset – having 2 less colors or being a Planeswalker that could be attacked – would be more balanced. I think the jury is still out on that one, but I DO know that she is quite powerful and sometimes straight up unfun to play against depending on your playgroup’s mindset – just let your playgroup know what they’re getting into before whipping out your Narset deck.
The following video is my version of Narset, Parter of Veils  paired with the signature spell of Days Undoing . The deck focuses on controlling the game through card advantage, counterspells, occasional removal and wheel effects that effectively wipe-out your opponents hands. The deck finishes the game with powerful creatures like Psychosis Crawler , Thing in the Ice , Kefnet the Mindful  and good ol’ Frost Titan . Watch on for a more detailed description of the deck and why I chose to play the cards that I did.
Hey friends and Planeswalkers! My name is Kel and I’ve been playing Magic: The Gathering since 1995. I also run my own YouTube channel called Red Zone MTG at https://youtube.com/redzonemtg where I try to upload at least one video a week, sometimes more often if time permits!
I have played TONS of other TCGs physical and digital. I’ve competed in high level tournaments (shout out to the old school JSS and SS) as well as hosted my own annual drafts that friends have dubbed “the Drink’n’Draft”.
My favorite formats are singleton (Oathbreaker, Commander, Highlander) and limited (draft, sealed, cube).
