What are your most hated two card combos that people never use?
The above is my choice

mmlgamer I think that both Hive Mind (as a way to make it more fun) and Wargate (for a catch-all tutor) are excellent considerations for the deck. The only problem with Hive Mind is that it needs to be in play before going off, which is much harder than pulling off the crazy already is. I'll talk it over with toothless but in the meantime thank you for your comment!

Despite these things I really like this deck. May even playtest it soon.

First of all, sorry for the loooooooooooooooooong time without posting here, guys. I was really busy with college.
dbpunk Both pacts would be better as a finisher instead of the blue one, but I use Pact of Negation because it is a good counter. Being able to combo with Hive Mind is just an "extra". I use HV mostly to have 4 wheels in the stack. Vile Consumption and Breathstealer's Crypt and seems to be evil and fun. I'll try them, thanks!
goblinguiderevealpls I couldn't agree more with you. I'm starting to change this type of cards. Thanks!
TheRedGoat I'm thinking about replacing Kami of the Crescent Moon for Duskmantle Guildmage. I need to test a little bit more. I didn't want to make a competitive deck. I love how casual and fun a EDH game can be. However, every wednesday there is a small multplayer tournament in a store near home. I've been successful with this list so far and I do not intend to run it has an 1v1 deck.
niels_bom You are right! Thanks for the heads up!!

It hardly seems worth it if you can't use Hive Mind to share the epicness.
BTW, how would Wargate fare in this deck?

Couple of suggestions:
Teferi's Puzzle Box is a great card for this deck, as it turns ever upkeep into a wheel.
Helm of the Ghastlord also goes pseudo-infinite with Niv-Mizzet. However, where it really shines is as an enchantment on Nekusar. Every time they draw a card, they are forced to discard one. This is made more powerful when combined with a wheel, as they will discard their hand and never be able to draw and retain any new cards.
Sigil of Sleep - every time they draw a card, you bounce a creature.
Hive Mind - Simultaneously having 2+ wheel effects in play is extraordinarily powerful.
I would also recommend cutting any cards that also damage you when you draw cards. Nekusar works best when you are generating considerable card draw, and self-flagellation is a great way to get yourself killed.

There were a couple of cards I thought might be fun, and I also ran a brief search for "whenever a player", and included some notable ones as well:
Storm Cauldron--while normally this is super annoying, it can enable landfall shenanigans.
Dovescape - No clue if this card would be worth the high mana cost, but it seems like it would fit with this deck.
Eye of the Storm sounds like it could grow out of control extremely rapidly.
In the Eye of Chaos - Giving players security against instants seems like a pretty strong enabler.
Overburden is a particularly powerful card against aggro, and can slow down players who might otherwise steamroll the competition in the early game.
There were some more potential additions using that search, and similar searches could be run by replacing the word "player" with "creature" or a different card type.
Another thing to consider: Perhaps an enchantment adding lifelink to Karona. Then other players are encouraged to attack with her, as she gains them life.
As an aside, +1 for using Karona as your general. She is one of the more interesting cards Magic has ever printed, and I love to play her as my commander (personally, I use her as a voltron commander, in an attempt to quickly rack up 21 commander damage through attacking on each player's turn).
