Bruna isn't legal in this deck and you may want to throw in some more card draw, with only ten creatures in the deck I'd imagine having them make it to the battlefield consistently is difficult.

Mind's Eye, Anvil of Bogardan, Smuggler's Copter, Heroes' Podium, Font of Mythos, Howling Mine, Staff of Nin, The Immortal Sun

Flicker and copy effects are also especially powerful with Aurelia. Strionic Resonator gets you 2 extra combat steps.

Paradox Engine+Isochron Scepter with Cloudshift exiled on it give you as many combats phases as you can pay for with the scepter, with one Mana rock that produces 2 it's infinite.

Font of Mythos seems counter-productive to your permanent based build. You don't get to use it until your opponents have already benefitted, and most likely drawn answers for your board state. With Dictate of Kruphix you can be the first to profit, if you really want the Hug to be there. Oracle's Vault is what I would put in. Provides card advantage to you with the bonus of being able to cast for free on the fourth activation.

Asceticism could be decent in here.

+1 Great job.

Library of Leng is one of the best cards in a Nekusar deck. One of the problems with wheels is being forced to discard your hand, potentially losing cards you would otherwise want to keep. Library of Leng fixes this--you can discard your dead cards, and put cards you want to keep back on top of your library. You will then draw the cards you wanted to keep, as well as additional cards, greatly strengthening your hand.

Curiosity on Nekusar gives you a card every time your opponent draws a card. Helm of the Ghastlord does the same, but also forces them to discard a card. If you cast a wheel effect while Nekusar has Helm of the Ghastlord, all your opponents will discard their hand, and then also discard every card they draw--barring removal, your opponents hand size is effectively 0 for the rest of the game.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is a wonderful card, and goes infinite with both Ghastlord and Curiosity.

Phyresis is just evil and can end the game when played alongside wheels and Teferi's Puzzle Box. Frankly, this combo is too cruel for some playgroups, and might not be recommended.

As for what to cut:

In my experience, Spiteful Visions and Phyrexian Tyranny are traps. You are generating enough card draw that you are just as likely to kill yourself, or put you within KO-range with these cards.

Temple Bell is another card which, while it looks good in theory, does not add that much to the deck. Without other support, you are giving your opponents a pretty powerful boon, even if you benefit as well. Same goes for Horn of Greed and Font of Mythos.

Hi! I like the deck. Font of Mythos might be a nice addition to the draw theme, especially for multiplayer games

So here's a list of the cards that I got for the deck:

However, there's plenty of things I know I need, and some things I might consider (thanks to crap, that's a lot of cards. What I want to do right now is have Kess play the support role while I tutor up Nekusar to play. As soon as I can start nabbing the wheels for Nekusar's pain, Kess's ability will allow me to cast them back for more wheel-y fun times (for me, at least). That way, people won't realize that this is actually a Nekusar deck: he's hiding, ready to strike! But my biggest problem is discerning which of these 150+ cards I need to whittle down to about 65, and also figure out how many lands I need to play. I've got a little money to spend, and this list is about as far as I'll go cost-wise.

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.

Thanks so much for your feedback, DanowarElf!

I will have to text with Intruder Alarm and Font of Mythos - nice suggestions! I don't play a ton of creatures, but will keep Merfolk Looter in mind.

I'm using Invoke the Firemind in place of Braingeyser right now. I often found Braingeyser in-hand with other draw effects, but I get a burn mode with the former, which has given me more meaningful choices since I included it.

With Memory Jar, the draw happens on sac, so it's like an emergency wheel to help combo out on my turn or to create blockers or extra mana with Ashnod's Altar on an opponent's turn.

You are right - Stranglehold is for the local meta. Lots of tutors and Zur.

And Sunbird's Invocation is great - there is often an impact card to hit or another rock, draw effect, or sac outlet to play. Lots of fun!

Let me know how your testing goes - I'm excited to try many of your suggestions. Thanks again!
