cedh nekusar primer

heres my competitive list, with some guidance

but personally the first thing to note is Dictate of Kruphix effects are bad and feed opponents too many draws while depending on other cards to actually deal damage

you need less creatures and enchantments and more Brainstorm effects, countermagic/protection,cheaper $ stuff like Commit, Cyclonic Rift Dream Fracture and Arcane Denial are a good start. you need a lot more ramp such as Talisman of Indulgence, Chromatic Lantern, Dark Ritual, Seething Song Cabal Ritual

last but not least nekusar is THE wheel commander, the slow grindy rout is what gets you focused and killed, you need a lot more of the available wheels like Molten Psyche, Dark Deal, Whispering Madness, Incendiary Command Windfall Memory Time Reversal

to make it faster without spending a budget like my list i would recommend the fork route to double wheels for the lethal damage or infect, stuff like Twincast Increasing Vengeance Bonus Round Reverberate Mission Briefing Past in Flames Hive Mind Swarm Intelligence Mizzix's Mastery to name a few

cut expensive cmc creatures and enchantments as well as Howling Mine effects which should remain only on nekusar himself. add more global looting effects and ramp, maybe a fork or counterspell or two and you'll be able to kill a table safer and faster

Squirrel Nest is backup, Token Beatdown is plan A, occasionally if you find a Waste Not you can almost storm off if you have the right amount of Dark Deal or Sadistic Hypnotist type cards.

Hey I_C_, haven't been on in awhile sorry!

I plan to create a full deck breakdown (again) soon, because I changed it from being more combo to more Vorthos. Originally it had Doomsday and Laboratory Maniac and other things of that nature.

It still has things that are more synergistic than combo like Show and Tell into Omniscience or Waste Not with wheel effects, Dark Deal being a favorite. Otherwise you didn't miss anything really combo-wise.

Long week at work! I'd say the most important cards are Unburial Rites and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. After that, Dark Deal, Increasing Confusion and Traumatize seem pretty important, though I'd also say, that anything powerful enough to shift a lot of cards from your library to your graveyard seems pretty vital.

I suggest 4xUnburial Rites, 4xJin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, 4xDark Deal, 4xIncreasing Confusion, and 2xTraumatize. That's 18 cards, many at a very high CMC. Along with 24 lands (and I think you should include 1xReliquary Tower in that 24), that's 42 cards. With the remaining 18 slots, I'd suggest sticking to 1 CMC spells as much as possible. Blackmail & Duress will be very helpful. I think Dark Petition might be the exception there, as it will make the deck more consistent at the cost of being 1 turn slower. If you feel like you've got to include any other cards over 2 CMC, I suggest only adding 1x. No matter how great the synergy might seem, if it's not part of the main wincon, it's likely to be a dead card in your hand, or at best only slow down opponents. And while it's nice to slow opponents down, it's always better to have the advantage, forcing a win, than it is preventing opponents from putting the final nail in your coffin.

This is all based on the idea that you want to cheat Jin out of your graveyard. I think you have nearly a whole other deck in Taxes-type cards. I suggest you shift those "choose" cards into a new deck, this time without Jin or any graveyard shenanigans.

We need something like Commit // Memory or Dark Deal out of this new Ravnica set. A bomb draw triggerer. It doesn't matter if they draw cards too, actually it only benefits us because more cards are coming off their deck.

If we have something from Azorius or Dimir in Ravnica that lets us draw 7 cards it's definitely going into the standard Mill deck. I'm hoping it's both players because then it'll be cheaper to cast.

Hi Se7enfoot... Thanks for your comment on my B/W Clerics deck.

I have several suggestions for your deck, but before I present to you let me first address your comment.

Although your deck is B/W like the one you commented on, they meant to be different. Yours is a hybrid between life-gain deck and an aggro deck. Mine is meant to be exclusively aggro.

I have a hybrid life-gain aggro cleric deck, white the Daru Spiritualist and Shuko combo, but it is mono-white - have a look : http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/protection-clerics/?cb=1532856807.

Now, about my suggestions:
