Love seeing all the Nekusar love out here! +1 from me!

Archaeomancer could be swapped out for Charmbreaker Devils . Archaeo comes in and does his thing once on enter the battlefield, but you get to choose the instant or sorcery to return to hand. Charmbreaker returns instant or sorcery spells every upkeep, but it is random. But if most of what you are casting is wheel effects and the like, you should get one right back to hand. Also one thing to consider, something like a Scavenging Ooze can remove that target from the library as Archaeo comes into play. While that same ooze would almost have to exile every good card before the Charmbreaker trigger resolves. Just a thought on that. :)

Hive Mind , I am picking mine up this week. With Nekusar in play plus Hive Mind, you can cast a Wheel of Fortune type spell, and in even in a three player game it is game over for all opponents as that is 21 commander damage right there. I see it in your SB as I look again.

New M15 card(s) to consider, I know I am considering some ... Waste Not looks interesting with all the discarding you are causing for opponents you can get some Zombies, more cards, or even a bunch of black mana off them. And Chandra, Pyromaster , her +1 can trigger on damage effects, +0 is basically a free card in hand, and her -7 means if you have Nekusar out and a Wheel is in the top ten, you copy that card three times, game over, 21 commander damage. ;)

One other thing I am thinking of putting in is Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage . The Guildmage's first ability does damage for every card put in the grave this turn from anywhere. So mill or discard. Mindcrank mills a card per point of damage. Wheel effects just play into those two combo pieces even if they aren't out at the same time. Nekusar's damage from drawing will kick off Mindcrank effects. And the Guildmage is like Liliana's Caress . ;)

Just all thoughts on cards to put in maybe pile and mull over and maybe add in. Check out my deck if you like for what I have thrown into mine, Crazy Nekusar's Card Drawing Emporium. I hope to try Hive Mind , Teferi's Puzzle Box , Mindcrank , and Duskmantle Guildmage tomorrow night at my LHS commander night.

I think I am going to put in Hive Mind , Duskmantle Guildmage , Teferi's Puzzle Box , and Mindcrank . Not sure what I want to take out. So far I have two just need to figure out two more. Chandra Ablaze can come out, as well as Leyline of the Void .

I am going to lose two lands, Vivid Marsh and Grixis Panorama and put in Cavern of Souls and Boseiju, Who Shelters All . A decent number of my creatures are wizard types as well as my general, and Boseiju protects my many wheels from counters when I cast them.

Oops I meant to say Tome Scour because if you start the game with two of those or Memory Sluice then by turn 3 your opponent's graveyard is big enough for Jace's Phantasm or a Wight to be a big creature. Having said that, Thought Scour is still a good card to have. Definitely stick with Mind Funeral . My Dimir mill deck also has the Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank combo which is a loop that can end the game immediately after one damage or one card into the graveyard.

Oh bollocks, that was a mistype. Duskmantle Guildmage actually goes infinite with the Mindcrank , that's the whole point of the deck.

Makes sense. Good looking build!

Why Dimir Guildmage over Duskmantle Guildmage ?

Its a T3 win enabler, and it means they can't Counterspell the Duskmantle Guildmage .

T1 Land, Vial

T2 Vial at 1, Land, Mindcrank

T3 Vial at 2, Land, Vial Guildmage into play, retain priority, activate ability, Gut Shot to face, combo

I did not think it existed,a budget mill deck thats effective,uses Duskmantle Guildmage and not Mindcrank .The crankmantle is incredibly cheap,fun,and fast, but its also one of the most common combos out there.Not saying I dont have a deck that uses the combo, because it is so fast and effective.This deck here reminds me of when I was trying to build it.

You might also wish to look into Paranoid Delusions and a few cheap unblockables like Blighted Agent / Dimir Infiltrator / AEther Figment . When you cast the delusions,cipher it on the unblockable,attack for a free second cast.Every time the ciphered creature hits,it mills and casts a spell.Important factor with the Consuming Aberration 's triggered ability.

You know what else goes great with unblockables and milling? For a low low price? Trepanation Blade !

Also think about adding a Diabolic Tutor or Disciple of Deceit to search your library for the cards you need.
