Ebony Owl Netsuke Discussion

MRDOOM3 on Nekusar Fun

You know what's a really nice way to lose friends? Equipping a Grafted Exoskeleton onto or enchanting Nekusar with Phyresis. Wound Reflection is also really nice.

More wheels are always nice. Windfall, Time Reversal, Winds of Change, Wheel and Deal, Magus of the Wheel, Teferi's Puzzle Box, etc.

More forced draw/damage you can run are Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Fevered Visions, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Well of Ideas, Otherworld Atlas, Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Iron Maiden, etc.

Since you're running Price of Knowledge, you also can consider cards like Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, and Devastation Tide for the purposes of filling up your opponents' hands for maximum damage.

I personally do not see how Notion Thief synergizes at all with Nekusar, he may just be control, or I may just be completely stupid.

Huzzah for The Locust God. I'm working on a similar list over at Revenge of the Nibblers. That Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage is spicy.

With Ebony Owl Netsuke and Viseling, it seems like Fevered Visions might be good to test. If you're going all in on feeding your opponents cards for those pain effects, you might also look at Anvil of Bogardan, Dictate of Kruphix, Howling Mine, and Well of Ideas.

It looks like balancing your mana base a bit more might be helpful, too.

I go back and forth on the group hug, everybody-draws effects and on wheels, which feel too random to me, but I always keep a few of each in my deck to fuel its commander. Please stop by and offer some feedback on my deck if you'd like. I use a lot of burn and draw spells that are dependent on my nibblers.

I like this ...

Fevered Visions, Ebony Owl Netsuke, might be okay for mill/draw

But this is hilarious: Perplexing Chimera and Homeward Path

Rite of Replication is also a blast ... just copy a creature with a great ETB trigger.

Insurrection can also be a single card game closer, especially after you are done ramping everyone else. ;-)

I just thought of another great card with TLG, Fevered Visions. Great card draw engine and source of added damage. You could even drop in Howling Mine and Kami of the Crescent Moon to maximize your draw per turn and punish your opponent for having too many cards with Black Vise or the mighty Ebony Owl Netsuke. That alone sort of makes me want to build around because it's hilariously absurd.

Anyway, good luck with the deck! Seems fun :)

I feel like the Ebony Owl Netsuke deck is just a little better than this. In it, you run the namesake card with Fevered Visions and often Runeflare Trap with a bunch of effects such as Howling Mine and Dictate of Kruphix. I've seen a few lists running Kefnet the Mindful as well. The pros that deck has over this version is that you have a much more cohesive gameplan that is easier to establish every game, unlike this deck where you have to play mediocre cards such as Curse of the Pierced Heart, Curse of Bloodletting, and Fireball. You could still use Rule of Law and Ghostly Prison in the Ebony Owl Netsuke build, but I would drop the walls.

Library of Leng is great in Nekusar for avoiding your own discards. Also no max hand size is nice. Perplex is nice as a counterspell if you need it, but its real value is in tutoring for 3 cmc cards. I think Eye of the Storm is really funny in Nekusar if you can get multiple wheel effects on it. Whirlpool Warrior is a wheel effect on a stick. Ebony Owl Netsuke is a good pain card.

Might be a good deck for Bloodchief Ascension+Mindcrank combo

Also Ebony Owl Netsuke is pretty sweet as well as Mikokoro, Center of the Sea
