Maizena on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer

MohenjoDaro, thank you for the comment. Dragon Mage indeed does synergize well with Nekusar, but the CMC is too high. Not only this, but he is also a creature, easier to remove than my high CMC cards like Forced Fruition or Price of Knowledge and he comes in play with summoning sickness (the enchantments are faster and safest).

My two creatures with CMC high (Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Seizan, Perverter of Truth) dosen't have to wait until my next turn to have some utility.

Dragon Mage if you get the chance to play it. Deck looks very fun though.

Spirits on Kaalia, born in Heaven for Hell on Earth

I like Gisela, the Broken Blade she is as good as Baneslayer Angel. Bruna, the Fading Light is just too awful for me to include, Brisela, Voice of Nightmares is pretty awesome and what I want, but not worth the uselessness of drawing a Bruna, the Fading Light. If only Bruna, the Fading Light was an ETB trigger! She would be superstar!

Maybe Archfiend of Depravity, not sure what the aggro looks like? If it's creatures he could be good. If it's tokens a Sever the Bloodline might work. Blind Obedience or Imposing Sovereign might slow them down?

Harvester of Souls gives you no pain drawing, and free cast with Kaalia of the Vast. I feel Farsight Mask CMC 5, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis CMC 6 will be too slow to help vs. an aggro deck, by the time they resolve and activate the game might be over. Indulgent Tormentor is great, does he net you many draws?

There's always the cycling draws, Dragon Mage, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul. I use Maralen of the Mornsong and Stranglehold to eliminate my opponents draw lol.

Archangel of Thune can block, lifelink to mitigate the aggro damage, and then get bigger and out of control as well. There's just isn't useful drawing in these colors that doesn't cause pain, and maybe even give those advantages, but not Mardu.

I disagree with Notion Thief. Normally great with wheels, bad in this case. Skyscribing is a suggestion, or Dragon Mage or Megrim

Thanks for the suggestions!

The existing wheels so far are those from the precon. I was aware of Magus of the Wheel and it definitely warrants a spot (replacing the Dragon Mage makes sense, thanks!). I originally was using Magus of the Will as a placeholder but discovered how useful it can be so it earned its spot to stay for now. I'll keep Winds of Change in mind for a possible future upgrade.

It's true that Warp World is mostly included for its chaotic value. Since there are only two spells which could cascade into it, I am more likely to Possibility Storm into it or hard cast it. That would make it relatively easy to hold it for the right moment. I hadn't put two and four together yet about using it with a bunch of tokens, but I do have two or three pretty good token generators in the deck so I would like to try it out to see if I can make use of those. Thanks for pointing it out!

I feel like adding the consistency that tutors provide would go against the spirit of chaos.

Do you have any opinions on the current shape of the mana curve with cascade in mind? Winds of Change fits in a different place in the curve than any of the other wheels so I'll be paying close attention to whether I want it there or not.

I've been thinking about putting Dragon Mage into the deck but it's only really good if my hand is empty or if i only have lands in hand. I'm still considering it though.

Maybe Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Magus of the Wheel, and Dragon Mage are all good to keep fuel on the fire in a mono red. I like your decklist though. I tried making an EDH deck with little Chandra but it didn't work for me, but you have a much better decklist than I ever did.
