you definitely need a Mindcrank to party with your Duskmantle Guildmage

Looks like you are well on your way to a really solid deck. That said, may I suggest some quick and sneaky additions as well. You should try to find space for Bloodchief Ascension, Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage - excellent synergy with the Nekusar build, but not necessarily obvious to players not familiar with the combos they create. Because the CMCs of these are very fast, with no tapping required, you create yet another opportunity to kill your opponent with either damage or discard as the trigger, both of which are already plentiful in the deck. To that end, Anvil of Bogardan can be sneaky in replacing a Howling Mine, as it will trigger an infinite loop kill on it's own with the Mindcrank and either one of the other two activated cards.

I'd look at Duskmantle Guildmage over Dimir Guildmage, as well as Bloodchief Ascension over Curse of Shallow Graves. You have several discard outlets already, and the first ability of the Duskmantle Guildmage will combo well with all of your mill effects. Now, the Curse is good, but as it only goes off once each combat, and provides aid to most of your opponents as well. The Ascension will give you a considerable stream of life, and is relatively easy to get online. Also, why no Gravecrawler? Geth, Lord of the Vault also goes well with the overall theme of the deck. I would suggest removing Cao Cao, Lord of Wei and Cabal Interrogator. They are both good cards, but you have several discard effects already. Plus, they must be used at sorcery speed, which can really slow down your plan, as well as forcing them to tap.

Guenzbach I'm running Mindcrank Duskmantle Guildmage combo and Bonehoardin my current paper version. But that Fleet Swallower is something I really could try out because I can give it double strike with Fireshrieker :DDD Traumatize didn't make the cut cause it is just one spell and Szadek gets out of control so fast and I needed room for protective spells. Thanks for your suggestions for the deck I really need to think that Hinder /Tunnel Vision combo :)

If you want some combos try Spell Crumple/Hinder together with Tunnel Vision or do the Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension/Duskmantle Guildmage combo. They both are easy to get out and the cards are even useful when not assembled in their combo.

I would consider The Scarab God and Mesmeric Orb. The Scarab provides you a nice little adjustable clock and triggers Ludviec pretty reliably and The Orb amps up your mill game and can be recurred easily with one of your commanders.

Less impactfully:

Blightsteel Colossus is strictly better than his pre-phyrexia alter ego; I would definitely run Sewer Nemesis or Consuming Aberration over Bonehoard.

Tezzeret the Seeker can go get you any artifact up to 4 mana, even if you can't defend him.

Mindslaver adds a neat shift to the political climate in EDH. Make your enemies friend into his enemy.

In a Red capable self mill deck Feldon of the Third Path and Goblin Welder might be strong additions.

Faithless Looting is good. Also there are a lot of really good tutors out there I would look into acquiring,

And you shouldn't really consider Mindcrank to combo solely with Bloodchief Ascension. If you ran Duskmantle Guildmage too it might be worth consideration but it would still be a dead card 9 times out of 10 unlike The Orb.

Thanks for the up vote, how brutal did you want to make this? Mindcrank+Duskmantle Guildmage are epic. If you just want it to be fun then reduce creatures to one of each and add Fleet Swallower and add Archive Trap and some counter spells.
