Brainstorm,Preordain,Ponder Frantic Searchand Serum Visions are some great draw spells Electrolyze can kill cratures and draw you a card and Slip Through Space can give your creatures unblockable.

Frantic Search always a good draw

I'm sure you're already aware of Wheel of Fortune, but that's the one big one I'm seeing that could go in.

These ones are good not just for draw triggers, but for filtering to what's needed at the time.

Breakthrough, Attunement, Ideas Unbound, Frantic Search (free!), Drastic Revelation

I can see you're focused on making -everyone- draw. You have a lot of high-powered cards here, but some lower costed filters like these can push out damage and improve your position. You'll likely be drawing a lot anyway, so the discard portion of my suggestions isn't much of a drawback.

I've worked with Nekusar builds before, and while they are awesome on paper, giving your opponents so much draw power can be detrimental.

You would not be able to cast the cards you would draw during the resolution of Frantic Search. Spells need to fully resolve before a player gets priority to cast more spells, use abilities, etc. With an empty hand Frantic Search turns into milling yourself for 2 and untapping 3 lands.

I was playing a game the other night (was not going great) and had an empty hand other than Frantic Search. I have many instants in this particular deck, and I had Leyline of Anticipation on the battlefield. Would I be able to draw two cards, cast said cards (of course depending on what I drew), then discard nothing, and untap the lands?

I also run a deck based off the Seize Control deck, though I stuck with the experience counters. I found that things that let you untap your lands are a huge help. Maybe try Rewind and Frantic Search. They let you accomplish something, and still have mana left for another counter spell.

Palinchron, Rewind, Cloud of Faeries, Frantic Search would all be great to cast once you have Cascade for the turn.

greatdevourer Honestly, as much as I like Entomb, I think I'd prefer to keep Vampiric Tutor and Personal Tutor here. Two of the best cards to see early are Buried Alive and Living Death (provided the ramp is there). Fetching them at the right time could be the game. I do wish personal tutor was instant speed so I could mask my intentions a bit more, but I think it deserves a spot. Entomb is one of my favorite cards, but even things like Intuition and Frantic Search have a bit more value in the end.
