Dictate of Kruphix
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws an additional card.
Dictate of Kruphix Discussion
2 weeks ago
I would include some cards that affect all players, regardless of whose control it's under. Dictate of Kruphix , Teferi's Puzzle Box , Font of Mythos can be build-arounds for a deck playing a lot of cheap cards. I've also heard that treating Zedruu as a Voltron commander, donating the Daybreak Coronet s and Ethereal Armor s you attach to it can be powerful. Any aura can be donated without affecting whom it benefits, though. I can see some of that with the creature removal you've chosen. You could also go for Curses, Imprisoned in the Moon , Darksteel Mutation , Eldrazi Conscription , Overwhelming Splendor , the list goes on and on.

Thanks for your feedback cdkime! a lot of solid points!
I am trying to build the deck as "budget friendly" as possible as it is my first deck and I'm still not willing to invest too much into a single deck. Because of this, I think I will include Master of the Feast , Jace Beleren & Dictate of Kruphix as I have already bought these :) but I can definitely see your point and I might exclude Howling Mine and Kami of the Crescent Moon . As you mentioned i have also noticed that Nekusar without any support/extra dmg pr. card draw etc. is more harm than good.
The combo you are mentioning with Temple Bell i dont quite understand, will Mind Over Matter not only untap it once, meaning i get to draw one extra card?
Library of Leng seems really really good and will definitely be included!
I can see why Niv-Mizzet & The locust god would be good - the locust god is too expensive atm. but i might include Niv-Mizzet and Curiosity
I have looked on Cyclonic Rift as well, but its too expensive atm. unfortunately.
I will make a few changes to the deck in about an hour or so if you wanna take a look please do - all feedback is appreciated!

This is a pretty solid start. I have a couple suggestions based on my own experiences with Nekusar.
First and foremost, these cards put you at a competitive disadvantage. While it may seem equal, you have to think of your opponents as a collective whole. These cards allow you to draw 1 card; with three opponents, your opponents are getting 3 cards total. That increases the chance that at least somebody will have drawn into their answer. Master of the Feast is an exception, you get no cards, while your opponents get 3. That's not worth a large, flying body.
Second, Nekusar really wants large, explosive plays. Chipping away one additional generally does not make a significant difference in the game.
Finally, with the exception of Dictate of Kruphix and Jace Beleren , your opponents get to take advantage of the additional card before you are granted additional cards. Not only do they put you at a long-term disadvantage, they start harming your chances of victory pretty much immediately.
I would include Temple Bell on this list, but I wanted to address it separately. Temple Bell has some potential alongside Mind Over Matter , as it allows you to mill yourself to 0. Run alongside Laboratory Maniac (which you can use the combo to dig for and then cast), you can use this to win the game.
Library of Leng is a powerhouse in Nekusar. You can discard the cards you do not want, but keep those you do, engineering a better hand with each wheel.
Cyclonic Rift is a pretty solid card in commander, functioning as an early-game bounce spell and a later-game method of clearing the board.
Hope some of that helps.

Are you aware you’ve included a blue enchantment?

While I definitely see the enchantment synergy, having curses like Torment of Scarabs that deny your opponents resources and cards like Master of the Feast that give your opponents resources seems non-synergistic. I'd try to focus either on the curse plan or the Fate Unraveler plan to maximize your interactions.
White is a really useful color for a curse deck and is likely to be more effective than blue without more mill cards. It gives you access to the incredibly strong Overwhelming Splendor and occasionally useful Curse of Exhaustion. You can also play Hero of Iroas, Kor Spiritdancer, Sram, Senior Edificer, or Mesa Enchantress instead of Cloud Key. Bitterheart Witch is one way to get a Curse of Misfortunes into play to start the engine, although Heliod's Pilgrim is another possibility.
For a "draw to death" strategy, Unraveler can be supplemented by Underworld Dreams. If you go red, you could use Fevered Visions and Kederekt Parasite instead. This strategy benefits from symmetrical draw effects like Dictate of Kruphix and Howling Mine, or forced draw as you have with Master of the Feast. Having plenty of removal and/or hand disruption is important since your opponents will have more gas to work with. If the chip damage isn't getting the job done, Notion Thief is another great way to break the symmetry.

Group hug does help your opponents, by using cards that double all mana Dictate of Karametra or everyone draws additional cards Dictate of Kruphix most people play a group hug deck after a crazy win or if all their other decks are too competitive for the people they are playing against. Group hug played competitive is designed to give them enough of a boost to wanna keep you around and then you kill off the last person to win. Pillow fort uses cards like Propaganda to slow your opponents down.
