Maizena on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer

TheRedGoat, thanks for all the sugetions!

I used to run Sangromancer, but it was easily removed. I use Exquisite Blood instead now. Notice that I do not run Sanguine Bond for combo, EB is here only for defence. I may try Crumbling Sanctuary and see if it is worth the risk.

Geth's Grimoire is a strong card in Nekusar. In the late game it will be almost a wincon, since you'll be able to chain any wheels you have for a insane amount of damage. Consecrated Sphinx also works.

I'm not sure about some of the words.

  • I have a stack doubt about Words of Waste. If I cast a wheel, in response pay the word cost, the word resolves first, then the wheel. When the wheel resolves, will everybody discard the hand, draw a new one and only after this the word's ability go the stack and my opponents will lose their hands? If that's the interaction, I REALLY love this.

  • Words of Wind says "each player", right? So it affects me...I don't like this.

  • Words of War deals damage only to one player. I prefer something more "global".

Faith of the Devoted and Drake Haven will cost me a lot of mana, I think I have another cards in the deck to use this amount of mana and have better results. Besides, I REALLY like my combos! 8D

So if you're going full multiplayer, I have 2 strong suggestions for defense in Sangromancer and Crumbling Sanctuary. The former speaks for itself, but the latter is obviously a much riskier option, although I can attest to the power fact that if it sticks you've essentially padded your life total with your library. Just watch out for straight life loss effects, as that gets around the artifact.

Speaking of, what are your thoughts on Geth's Grimoire? I personally find it can be very powerful in tandem with Words of Waste, but you don't run either that or Words of Wind or Words of War. They, like Faith of the Devoted and Drake Haven are a little mana intensive, but arguably are worth the investment. Trick is you'd likely have to cut your infinite combos to make any space, or else your more over the top utility cards perhaps? Idk, but I always like playing with the words of cards in my old Nekusar build, so I do have a slight bias towards using them.

That could be a lot of damage but is just isn't synergistic enough with the rest of the deck. If I was to focus more on the drake I'd run Strategic Planning or Cathartic Reunion. Though that card could fit in a Drake Haven build of the deck.

Monastery Siege is not a better choice for what I meant... Necropotence allows you to, say you have 3 cards in hand, and 5 mana. you take 9 from necro to exile 9 from the top. Cleanup phase you have to discard to seven and you 12 cards in your hand, you discard to 7 and pay 5 from those 5 discards, dealing 10 dmg to whole board, and regaining 10 life (or putting 5 dragons depending if we are speaking about Drake Haven).

A card that could be useful if you are dead set on not using Necropotence could be Attunement. I'm using it on my reanimator and its really powerful (despite sounding kind of underwhelming is a powerful card in practice).

I haven't noticed you had already mana crypt as I looked the list, no I don't mean vault.

hey VelvetVendetta thanks for the suggestions!

Necropotence is, like you say, kind of a nonbo in this deck- especially since Abandoned Sarcophagus is so good late game.

To be honest Monastery Siege is a better choice in Cycling Zur as it adds card draw plus the discard can trigger Drake Haven and Faith of the Devoted

I'm already running crypt...maybe you are meaning Mana Vault? ;)

ZombieTribalFTW on Budget U/R Enigma Drake

Hey, I'm glad you like it! Drake Haven is the very last resort for the deck if we fail miserably and don't draw any of our good creatures. Saheeli Rai could be moved to the sideboard but I like her for the draw fixing from the scrying making sure we get our Enigma Drake. Plus she pings the opponent for 1 killing them THAT much faster. I like Saheeli's interaction with God-Pharaoh's Gift and Combustible Gearhulk because that becomes a problem very fast if she gets to her ultimate. Plus her -2 is a 1 hit wonder Tilonalli's Skinshifter basically and I find it very amusing when the opponent realizes what happens much later than they should have. (which was when they took 12-16 damage to the face)

Also, as a note. The deck is probably around $40 and not $36 because Combustible Gearhulk isn't listed on pricings.

Yeah, Drake Haven is too OP not to include a playset.

Check out Asylum Visitor for some card draw. Black Cat is a good chump blocker that helps you discard some more. Favorable Winds is a card that doesn't fit into your theme but works well with Drake Haven.
