I guess Praetor's Grasp Wash Out Extract from Darkness Windfall would be a great card for you. But overall I just have to say that you mana curve is way to high for the amount of ramp/lands you have. I would suggest picking up all of the signets like Rakdos Signet and a couple other really cheap mana rocks like Talisman of Dominance these cards will literally go in every single future edh deck you will build and you can probably get all of them for like 2 or 3 dollars. People at your LGS will probably have extra copies of these cards.

If you would like some suggestions,Drop:

Transguild Promenade (not a great mana filter)

painted bluffs (not great mana filter)

River of tears (some comp decks run this but personally i dont like it)

Metallurgic Summonings

Sunbird's Invocation

Duskmantle Seer (you have some high CMC cards)

Nucklavee (cmc too expensive)

Wizard Replica (use actual counterspells rather than creature ones)

Dissipate (use a different counterspell: Arcane Denial)

Ravenous Trap (Run bojuka bog instead)

Disdainful Stroke (not a great counterspell: trade out for undermine)

Horn of Greed (this cards actually alright to keep if you cant find a replacement)

Neurok Stealthsuit (actually mentioning this card because its great! glad to see someone use it)

Sphere of the Suns (theres better cheaper manarocks)

Traveler's Amulet (not great ramp)

Wayfarer's Bauble ()

Mystic Retrieval

Deny Existence (not great counterspell: trade out for Dream Fracture?)

Negate (get Counterspell instead)

God-Pharaoh's Gift (Too high of a cmc for what it does, when your deck gets further developed you will end up with less creatures)

Mind Stone (trade out for sol ring)

Dimir Charm (i like izzet charm better, not a super whole lot of 2 mana cards you want to destroy in edh)

Izzet Chronarch

You have a lot of instant and sorcery retrieval, Honestly with Nekusar in my opinion you should actually replace those cards with more copys (For example Windfall and Collective Defiance are basically copys since they do the same thing) = Consistency, its nice to grab whatever you want from the graveyard but you dont always have that option.Heres some cheap cards to fit in maybe? i play paper and im thinking paper prices, everything here should be under $3

Graven Cairns: Fantastic mana filter, too bad the rest of the cycles are incredibly cheap, this is the only super cheap one

Geier Reach Sanitarium

Extract from Darkness


Breathstealer's Crypt: This card is insane for what it is, it hits you too but its still worth it.

Whispering Madness

Geth's Grimoire


Library of Leng


Mystic Remora

Crosis's Charm

Dark Deal


Kederekt Parasite

Lim-Dul's Vault

Diabolic Vision




Phyresis and Tainted Strike, it feels good to kill players with infect after wheeling multiple times in one turn

Fevered Visions

Jace's Archivist


Collective Defiance

Temple Bell Great card, try to tap it at the end of their turns, or use when you need to topdeck a counterspell

Extract from Darkness is a neat card that could be worth trying out, despite its lack of zombie tribal synergy.

I would definitely have 5+ consistent ways to copy instants/sorceries, because she gets crazy with them. I specifically added ones that I don't think are listed on EDHREC for her:

The reason im using Narcomoeba is because it combos with Mortuary and Altar of Dementia to get me infinite zombies. I sac Narcomoeba to Altar of Dementia and then with Mortuary in play rather than going into the yard, it goes on top of the deck, and then i mill myself two from the altar's ability, which will throw Narcomoeba into the yard, both getting me a zombie and putting it back into play to rinse and repeat. And i think for now i will cut Intuition for Extract from Darkness because of both the price tag and that none of my local game stores have one in stock. As for Villainous Wealth though... maybe dropping Scroll Rack??

Narcomoeba is easy to activate in this deck, but once it's on the board, does it really have the kind of impact you want? A 1/1 flier is not going to worry many people. It's really hard though, because there are a lot of cards that have synergy with the deck... I would slot in Villainous Wealth for Narcomoeba. Extract from Darkness is the hard one because the question is whether you want to replace another GY interaction card with it or do you want to cut something else to make your deck focus even more on the GY? I would say probably cut Sudden Reclamation to make room. Extract from Darkness puts a creature on the battlefield. It doesn't even have to be YOUR creature. It can target any GY. A really awesome play is to play Extract from Darkness and bring back an Eternal Witness. Even better if that Eternal Witness was your opponent's. Then use the E-Witness trigger to bring back Extract from Darkness.

gavoryn, I took into consideration what you said and i made some changes to the deck. I still havent found a slot for Villainous Wealth or Extract from Darkness though. Any suggestions?

Also, you have some very good GY interaction cards. Have you ever considered Extract from Darkness?
