Forced Fruition Discussion
1 week ago
My main issue with Forced Fruition is the mana cost. I won't deny it is a powerful effect, but a 6 mana spell that helps opponents draw into answers for the situation it places them in is not where this deck wants to be I don't think. It also leaves them better off in the aftermath, which is sort of a feelbad moment.
That being said, I appreciate the suggestion! and Marton Stromgald is an obscure one, sounds like a blast to play.

Well of Ideas can add more draw power to the party.
Ghirapur Orrery seems like a good fit as well, all that draw power will put land in hand.
Unless you intend to use Spectral Searchlight on the weakest person, I don't think it's quite friendly enough. Akroan Horse would be fun to pass around. Luminarch Ascension would be harmless but potentially lifesaving endgame card. Assemble the Legion could also be a good one. If you are running Sphere of Safety and Ghostly Prison, Norn's Annex and Crawlspace are in the same vain.

Ok, my comment got destroyed, sorry. Lemme try that again. You should run Archive Trap no matter what, maybe splash back for Glimpse the Unthinkable , Dimir Doppelganger , Nemesis of Reason , Oona, Queen of the Fae . Mind Funeral

hello fellow grixis/nekusar mage!
you're deck looks pretty standard, if you want to see a budgetless competitive nekusar, check out my cEDH nekusar primer
ive been playing him since print and he is my pet deck!
first things first. Nekusar is, very obviously, a wheel commander, this means 3 things, that he is very heavy on noncreature spells, and thus weak to creatures, he draws a lot of hate, and thus giving opponents free card advantage/draws into answers is usually counterintuitive, and due to him being grixis wheels, you want a LOT of self-draw to draw into combos and MINIMAL Howling Mine effects
i would strongly recommend keeping your creature base smaller and draw/tutor focused, as creatures are all but disposable in a spell deck, and your planewalkers are extremely fragile,so the only one you get value off of the usual single activation before death is tezzeret, and you need a LOT more creature hate to stave off combat damage that nekusar is weak to
notable draw/utility you're missing
cards like Forced Fruition give your Opponents the cards they need to remove damage like nekusar or underworld dreams ans get more free cards, while the above cards only give YOU the draws so you can draw into combo engines like dream halls to win
secondly, you need a lot more creature hate
notable missing mass creature answers:
any further questions about the best commander in edh, feel free to reference my primer list or message me :)

My Marton Stromgald deck would also love this deck as it runs low on steam quickly seeing as it functions as a ticking timebomb.
Marton is a bit confusing, but essentially he gives all creatures attacking by his side +X/+X where X is the number of attacking creatures. So it plays a lot of small creatures, haste enablers and ramps like its trying to be mono-green. Usually if I win via Marton I have about 15 creatures swing 5 at each player, give them trample or something of the sort and call it a game as I like just hit them with at least 85 damage.
I think the problem I'm seeing with my decks vs. Something like your Cheeks deck here is speed. My decks are designed to play a long and short game. Being low to the ground is dangerous for decks like yours, especially when I cant run out of my clock if my hand is constantly filling back to full when I empty it.
For this I suggest Forced Fruition as its an easy way to counteract people dropping their hands out.

Cards to take out:
Indentured Djinn while the logic is solid behind choosing him, he's each opponent "May" draw, allows them to opt out of the 3+ damage
Duskmantle Seer fit's the flavor, but isn't actually a draw which could easily net you less damage across the board.
Returned Phalanx this card takes up space for no real good reason
Trade Secrets is illegal in the commander/edh format
Cards to consider:
Arjun, the Shifting Flame my friend runs this guy in a red/blue locust god EDH it forces all sorts of draw on everyone.
Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur Later game nets you heavy amounts of draw and makes your opponents lose any card advantage you might give them.
Stormbreath Dragon with the amount of cards you should be forcing your opponents to draw his monstrous will be devastating
Sturmgeist you're going to have a fair deal of cards yourself
The Locust God tokens for days.
Viseling hand sizes will easily be 4+ damage will be dealt.
Howling Mine forces draw
Font of Mythos forces more draw
Archmage Ascension why draw cards like a plebeian when you could tutor all the cards?
Fevered Visions essentially 2 damage a turn every turn.
Forced Fruition easy 7+ damage
Price of Knowledge Damage for days
Underworld Dreams it's like have 2 nekusar
Well of Ideas All the draw.

Collective Defiance Is one I'm considering for my own Nekusar deck. Forced Fruition could also make your opponent squeamish. I imagine you'll be drawing a lot so maybe Venser's Journal or Ivory Tower to take advantage of that?
Take a look at mine and see if you anything jumps out at you. Losing Your Mind
