Faithless Brewing, Episode 46: Narset, Parter of Veils
It’s been a minute since Narset was a staple in Modern. Once mentioned frequently in the same breath as Karn and Teferi, the long and difficult months of 2019 gradually forced Narset to surrender her claim as a top-three planeswalker from War of the Spark. Without Arclight Phoenix decks to prey upon, Narset has taken a back seat to cards like Ashiok, Dream Render, Nissa, Who Shakes the World, and even the occasional Saheeli, Sublime Artificer.
It would be a mistake, however, to ignore Narset completely, even in today’s metagame. Her static ability may not line up well against every opponent, but it does combine in spectacular ways with certain unique spells and effects. Those same pieces can be found off Narset’s -2 activation, making this unassuming three-mana walker both a strong card advantage engine and a deadly prison enabler. Let’s see what she can do!
