Maizena on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer [[PRIMER]]

Sorry it took me that long to answer you guys (AGAIN)!!!

  • Psychonoud Thanks for the comment! I prefer BA over Rolling Earthquake because of the mana cost and it dosen't deals me damage (most of the time I'm the target of the aggro decks). Phyrexian Tyranny isn't my best "pain" card and I use it only for finish the game, and Raiders' Wake is a much safer option, I agree with you. Notion Thief and Consecrated Sphinx are draw machines that help me combo off. Paradox Engine is a must in this deck!!! I run a lot of mana rocks, with PE I can easily "chain" my wheels.

  • n0130dy13th Thanks a lot! The first time I build this deck back at 2016 it was basically the Commander 2013 Precon with about 20 different cards. The biggest and more important change I made was the mana base. It helped me A LOT at my LGS!

  • yuval Thank you mate, I still need to give the explanation a update. There are 2 things I don't like in Kederekt Parasite . 1 - I need a red permanent and I run only 2 of them and the commander. This card makes me too reliant on Nekusar. I don't like it. 2- It's a creature, the easiest permanent type to remove in the game. I used to run Arcane Denial but the 2 cards draw is a big drawback, a combo player will not care about the damage if it brings him/her closer to winning the game. Moreover, Disallow also counters activated abilitys, its a huge improvement over AD for only one more .

  • Falkenstein That price is because the list is almost all composed of foil/promo cards. And some expensive cards like the old dual lands and some mana rocks can be replaced in order to the list became more accessible.

  • Jamirostyle Thanks! This card is awesome! It will replace Incendiary Command !!

Recently built Riku myself. Ended up with two versions: Riku Token Tricks and Riku Midrange Toolbox.

Guided Passage is made for Riku.

Fiery Confluence , Verdant Confluence and Mystic Confluence , Incendiary Command , Primal Command , Cryptic Command and Atarka's Command seem like auto includes for Riku. Too much value.

Give this episode of EDHRECast a listen. It's all about 75% decks with a focus on the creator of the site's Xantcha deck.

As for specifics for your deck, the first card I would include Koskun Falls . It's the only Ghostly Prison effect in black, and it will help you defend. Well, there's also No Mercy , so give that a whirl, as well.

Dauthi Embrace and Dauthi Trapper are interesting tech. I've never seen those cards before! If your goal is just to make Xantcha unblockable, though, Cover of Darkness is much cheaper (gotta love old cards that effect other people's creatures!), and I doubt you'll get much blowback from other Minions on the table.

With the whole, "everybody, attack!" plan, I like Fumiko the Lowblood in this deck. Same for Angel's Trumpet , which is basically a more efficient Charging Cinderhorn.

I also see a Nekusar, the Mindrazer kind of thing going on. You'll probably want some wheels to supplement that strategy. A few good budget ones are Khorvath's Fury , Incendiary Command , and Reforge the Soul .

As for cuts, Cabal Stronghold is pretty iffy in a deck running 11 Basic Swamps. Temple of the False God is awful. You're effectively running 35 lands, because Temple is a free 4-mana rock, not a land. I honestly despise this card. Run Thran Dynamo , Worn Powerstone , or Hedron Archive , instead, and add in a couple more lands. I would put in some budget fixing lands, such as Rakdos Carnarium and Tainted Peak . I don't like Bubbling Muck much. You're not running that many swamps, so something like Mana Geyser would be much more effective if you need big mana. I'm also not really sure what Harmless Offering is doing in this deck.

Those are just my initial impressions. I'd also check out the Xantcha page at EDHREC to see how others are building. You can click the budget tab in the top right to help stay under $150! Good luck!

Some thoughts...

Reforge the Soul, would give you another Wheel of Fate effect.

Sign in Blood, says target player, you can use it on yourself or your opponent, or have it on a stick Seizan, Perverter of Truth.

Barbed Shocker, Incendiary Command and Chandra Ablaze, don't cause a draw of 7, but do discard hand and draw the same number of cards, or 3 anyway.

Gnat Miser, reduces a players max hand size, Kederekt Parasite hurts them when they draw, as long as you have a red creature, enchantment, planeswalker or artifact.

Liliana's Caress, deals damage based on discard, Runeflare Trap does it based on draw.

Tasigur's Cruelty, has delve and discards 2 cards, though Wrench Mind exists and with a little work Whispers of Emrakul.

This is just off the top of my head (to be fair I have a deck which plays in this space Grixis Owl-ing Mine) so there are probably more... Hope this inspires you, good luck brewing your deck.

Arjun, the Shifting Flame would be really fun in this deck. Also since you are running all sorts of wheels here’s a few more that could go in here:

hkhssweiss on Niv-Mizzet, Fastest Draw in the West

BelugaWhale217 Love Niv-Mizzet, you can also go for a more hand cycling route to get some more fun. Some cards you can consider that are quite budget would be:

There are also some efficient cheap counterspells as well to protect and interact.

Hope that helps!

cedh nekusar primer

heres my competitive list, with some guidance

but personally the first thing to note is Dictate of Kruphix effects are bad and feed opponents too many draws while depending on other cards to actually deal damage

you need less creatures and enchantments and more Brainstorm effects, countermagic/protection,cheaper $ stuff like Commit, Cyclonic Rift Dream Fracture and Arcane Denial are a good start. you need a lot more ramp such as Talisman of Indulgence, Chromatic Lantern, Dark Ritual, Seething Song Cabal Ritual

last but not least nekusar is THE wheel commander, the slow grindy rout is what gets you focused and killed, you need a lot more of the available wheels like Molten Psyche, Dark Deal, Whispering Madness, Incendiary Command Windfall Memory Time Reversal

to make it faster without spending a budget like my list i would recommend the fork route to double wheels for the lethal damage or infect, stuff like Twincast Increasing Vengeance Bonus Round Reverberate Mission Briefing Past in Flames Hive Mind Swarm Intelligence Mizzix's Mastery to name a few

cut expensive cmc creatures and enchantments as well as Howling Mine effects which should remain only on nekusar himself. add more global looting effects and ramp, maybe a fork or counterspell or two and you'll be able to kill a table safer and faster
