Font of Mythos
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws two additional cards.

Nekusar's biggest issue is that he increases your opponents' chance to draw into their answers. With all the extra card draw you generate, there's a high likelihood they will find some instant-speed response that can put your entire deck in a bind. As such, you need to focus on explosive plays, such as wheel effects, rather than small, passive card draw.
Further, in multiplayer games, cards like Howling Mine provide you relative card disadvantage. Let's take a look at the common four-person game. You will draw one additional card; your opponents will draw a collective total of three. That's three chances for someone to find an answer to your strategy. While no single player is benefiting more than everyone else, you still have to think of the game as "you versus the world" and work to minimize "the world's" advantages.
Here are a couple cards I think you should consider adding:
Library of Leng this card is a powerhouse alongside wheels. You can send the cards you do not need, such as extra lands, to your graveyard, but immediately re-draw the cards you do want to keep. By removing an element of chance from your wheels, you can quickly engineer a superior hand.
Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind has a powerful ability, can draw you cards, and enables himself.

alechodgin23, thank you! I'm looking to balance my card draw. One thing that I've thought of are some sort of group hug cards like Kami of the Crescent Moon , Howling Mine or Font of Mythos . Unfortunately I don't want to help my opponents that much, because of not having many answers against floats of enchantments, artifacts,.. and so on.
The other thing I'd like to mention is, that Windfall or Whispering Madness does indeed fill my hand and graveyard, but in a control strategy I stick on my Counterspell s and can't affort to get them into the graveyard. So I came up with the Surveil-mechanic, wich gives me card selection.
Checked out your deck - great work!

thankfranktank02: I had thought bout the howling mine and Font of Mythos type cards but I really don’t want to help opponents draw cards that can screw up what I am doing to them. As for a few of the other cards you mentioned, I don’t want cards that will force me to discard any card I might be holding onto for a reason. As for the hypnotist, I already have him in the deck and Nath has green it dude.

First off I gotta say +1ed just for the primer alone. Great job incorporating the spider queen and the underdark into it. The decks damn good as well. Have you ever considered any of these cards for this build?:
- Mind Slash gives you another option in case someone exiles your sadistic hypnotist.
- Koskun Falls for another elephant grass effect.
- Dictate of Erebos (or should I say Dictate of Lolth?) to take advantage of the creature sacking you’ll be doing.
- Howling Mine and Font of Mythos to fill opponents hands just to make them discard again...maybe?
- Words of Waste to skip the extra draws from the above two possibilities then get those cards anyways from Necropotence lol.

Here’s a few cards to consider:
- Nezumi Shortfang
- Shrieking Affliction
- Cao Cao, Lord of Wei
- Greel, Mind Raker
- Wheel of Torture
These two cards are iffy but something to think about.

goblinguiderevealpls, firstly I'd like to say your deck is great! I have been building a Nekusar deck for a while now, I had previously been solely running Omnath, Locus of Rage since release as my only EDH deck. But I wanted to venture into Blue and a more competitive build. My Nek deck started out as a group huge version Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Forced Fruition etc but with a bunch of countermagic. I've been looking at your deck more and more recently to try and get to a more competitive build.
My question for you is this. What is your approach to enchantment removal? I've been looking at Commit, what are your thoughts? With the latest Commander set, there has been a definite uptick in enchantments and enchantment commanders in my local meta.

ZendikariWol it depends, you don't need a sacrifice outlet per se, just a Vessel of Nascency, Executioner's Capsule, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Font of Mythos, Nevinyrral's Disk, Seal of Primordium, Seal of Doom, all of the fetchlands, and other self-sacrificing cards. The Capsules, Spellbombs, Vessels, Fonts, Seals, Blighted Lands, Single-Colored-Pain-Land-Desert Cycle, etc.

I have to agree with the above...Sigil of Sleep is so silly. Play that card for days. Font of Mythos in your maybeboard is also really underwhelming. It seems nice if you haven’t been bothering your opponents too much, or you don’t have Nekusar out and are setting up to drop him and wheel, but I’d much rather see something like Primal Amulet Flip for the bit of cost reduction and the transform, especially when every card you give them has a chance to be something to interact with you...
