Deep Freeze Discussion
3 weeks ago
I also think your Sideboard is not well made, seems like you wanted to strap the cards you wanted inside the deck in there. think about what cards you want in an aggro matchup and a control matchup, you will see then that maybe only the Negates are right and maybe the Spell Pierces, which I would at least change for Syncopates. I would change the creature cards in the sideboard for some combination of Diamond Mare, Sleep, Deep Freeze or Entrancing Melody

Thanks for the input, Kizmetto.
You're probably right that aggro will be a tough matchup. My idea behind playing no creatures at all was to make all the opponents' removals useless. But if only one creaturespell manages to slip through my counters and I can't find a copy of Deep Freeze, then I'm in a lot of trouble. So either I should add another copy of Deep Freeze or play some creatures for blocking. Considering creatures, I'd probably choose Wall of Mist over Murmuring Mystic because of the lower cmc. I already play two cmc5 cards and more cards with a high cmc don't fit well with playing counters.
I'm not worried about the control matchup that much, because my deck has a lot of counters and intends to play a long game. But you're maybe right that 8 counters are too much, although the high amount of card-filtering helps with this. One more thing about Murmuring Mystic is, that I imagine it to be useful against aggro and against control, so maybe you're still right to maindeck it. I guess I'll have to see how playtesting goes.

Sideboards are where you put your more narrow answers that might be good against a few decks.
Aethersphere Harvester against aggro
Sleep Against tokens
Also it could be handy to have different removal like:

Sylvan Library is a pretty solid card, helping smooth your curve with the option for additional cards if needed.
You mentioned one of your issues is how to win--Champion of Lambholt can help with that some--you make it bigger with your commander's ability, making your other creatures harder to block.
Hardened Scales, Doubling Season, and Pir, Imaginative Rascal all go well with your commander, but not sure you have enough other +1/+1 counter enablers to make them worth it. Doubling Season, of course, can be run with some planeswalkers for instant ultimates.
I would cut some of your destruction spells and perhaps replace them with Song of the Dryads, Imprisoned in the Moon, and Deep Freeze. Each can remove a commander without a zone change, so they are stuck on the field crippled. Song of the Dryads has the added advantage of removing any permanent.
Since you have pretty decent ramp and a low curve, Genesis Wave is a solid option, dumping creatures and adding some lands.

I have adjusted the deck.
Wincons should be Adeliz, the Cinder Wind for damage due to flying and haste.
Banefire for damage once enemy is 5 life and below.
Enigma Drake as a potential finisher since it gains power off of the graveyard of spells. This is for games get really grindy. It isn't a wizard but he is an exception.
Have spells lined up for certain jobs mainly to do creature/non-creature removal. I'm considering adding Anticipate to help smooth out draws. Siren Stormtamer is in sideboard but may go to mainboard to help smooth out counters. Also need a replacement for Deep Freeze

Glad you found the suggestions useful.
Dominaria has a new card Deep Freeze which you can consider too.

I would recommend cutting Temple Bell, Master of the Feast, Dictate of Kruphix, Howling Mine, Kami of the Crescent Moon, and Jace Beleren. On paper, these cards seem to work well in a Nekusar deck--after all, more card draw means more damage. In reality, I have found this not to be the case. Cards are the most important resource in MTG, and paying a few life for extra cards is generally a pretty good deal (which is why Necropotence is on Vintage's restricted list). The problem gets even worse in multiplayer--after all, you're drawing one extra card, and thus have one chance to receive something you need, while your opponents collectively draw three cards, increasing the chances one might receive their answer to your strategy.
Focusing on explosive plays with wheels tends to be the best bet. Here are some cards to consider adding:
Helm of the Ghastlord produces redundancy for the Niv-Mizzet combo. When enchanting Nekusar, your opponents are forced to discard the cards they do manage to draw.
Sigil of Sleep turns wheel effects into mass bounce spells, helping provide protection.
Phyresis ends games, but infect is generally seen as a highly toxic mechanic. I would be weary of running this, as it could make individuals not want to play against you.
Imprisoned in the Moon and Deep Freeze provide solid removal without causing a change in game-zone. As such, you can use them to remove a commander without it being returned to the command zone, ensuring it sits uselessly on the battlefield for as long as it is enchanted.
