Fate Unraveler Discussion

This seems really hilarious to play! I feel like Cruel Reality, Curse of Bloodletting, Fate Unraveler, Kederekt Parasite, and Sin Prodder could fit in your deck, Cruel Reality and Curse of Bloodletting would be good with killing one problematic player, or as good leverage to hold over anyone looking to attack you.Fate Unraveler, Kederekt Parasite, and Sin Prodder would be more like the cards you have in your deck, killing everybody equally. Dread and Orbs of Warding could help you with pillowforting, Dread with discouraging any attacks against you plus a huge threat, and Orbs of Warding can make sure that nobody can make you sacrifice things or any shenanigans like infinite mana plus Blue Sun's Zenith combos, plus the added upside of preventing a good amount of damage from token decks and things like that.

I love nekusar and everything about him, I started building him as soon as he was spoiled, and now have an insanely tuned and budgetless competitive multiplayer edh deck
Anyways, what would I recommend for budget casual constructed?
As you can see by my deck, i learned that nekusar loves Wheel of Fortune and is more of a spellslinger draw theme than zombie tribal.
That being said, if you want to build around the lich king, creatures should be your last priority,
In a 20 life format, nekusar only needs 3 "draw 7" or mass loot spells to kill an opponent, and thankfully a majority of these are cheap.
Second to wheels and forced draw, nekusar is kind of high cmc for a creature, so things like Nightscape Familiar can help you cast more spells faster, speaking of more spells, grixis has access to a beautiful array of rituals that you can chain into nekusar much earlier than turn 5 and also allow you to cast more wheels after refreshing your hand
The budget rituals include
Cards like Geth's Grimoire and Jace's Archivist can easily win you the game if left unchecked, and there are other forms of draw damage in Phyrexian Tyranny Fevered Visions Underworld Dreams Spiteful Visions
As far as cheap counterspells, Arcane Denial is BONKERS cuz it can deal draw damage with its draw, Sign in Blood is a cheap card draw that you can use to draw OR kill opponents by stacking it with nekusar.
Cards that save you from wheels decking you out
Other than "wheel" and countermagic, you can also mill opponents with Mindcrank or Sphinx's Tutelage, reanimate wheeled creatures with stuff like Stitch Together, or run discard like Despise or Duress, and Cephalid Coliseum is INSANE as a cheap 1-of in edh, id be scared to see what 3 or 4 could do.
Lastly, a spell decks worst weakmess is CREATURES
now im going to assume you're not going to be slinging Damnation around, but theres tons of budget alternatives in the likely case that opponents will have more creatures than you
And if you're still itching to run creatures even though i would not advise many, here are a few options thar nekusar has liked in the past
Hope this helps

Those are the priciest in the deck, though, most of the wheels and non foil cards were budget friendly.. yea i was restricted by budget for the first 3 years, but i built it more Fork / Dark Ritual + wheels, i find the upkeep draws like Howling Mine give your opponents too much card advantage/answers without Notion Thief and is just pure card advantage to opponents without nekusar or Underworld Dreams effects.
Some budget options
.. i could go on, i wasn't speaking purely of the budget cards i was just pointing out ive put 6 years and a lot of money into building mine so there are some budget ideas in that list

Maybe one Painful Quandary.
Geier Reach Sanitarium. If they discard a land, you get your mana back.
Ruthless Sniper could have some real fun here.
And definitely some creature removal, such as Murderous Cut.

Molten Psyche, Reforge the Soul, Whispering Madness, Windfall, and Winds of Change are all great cards with Nekusar, not only slamming them for large amounts of damage (some even with discard damage from Liliana's Caress), but disrupting their plans (particularly if they've tutored things), and letting you discard and draw when you're in a bind.
Jace's Archivist is superb--a wheel every turn for one mana? Yes please.
Teferi's Puzzle Box is a bit more than the $5.00 limit you placed ($5.52), but serves as another wheel every single turn, and adds some fun and chaos to the battlefield.
Library of Leng works well with your wheel cards, allowing you to safely wheel with the above cards, even when you have things in hand you'd rather not get rid of.
Chasm Skulker pairs well with mass draw.

Thanks for your comments Reverie42,
Rule of Law and Eidolon of Rhetoric are fantastic for my mid-game. I don't own these cards yet but will definitely acquire at least one of them. They won't be replacing Fate Unraveler though; you wouldn't believe the dirty looks I get from players using blue when that card hits the table. And it gets even worse when it's joined by Underworld Dreams.
Heliod, God of the Sun is nice alternative to Daxos' token generation but there's just one problem; I have nothing to boost these tokens. They won't benefit from my XP counters. So in that sense, Helios' token ability is a bit underpowered; especially in this configuration.
Skybind is nice, but I don't have that much scary non-enchantment permanents to blink. That's kind of the point :)
