Iron Maiden Discussion

Bezter on Are you feeling it now Mr. Crabs

I agree with Hyperalgialysis. Drop some lands!

Forced Fruition is brutal for your opponents.

Iron Maiden is alright, just happened to come across it today so I thought I'd share. Skullcage is interesting as well, and Dark Suspicions has a similar affect. Sadly these happen at the upkeep which is before the draw step, but they could still do some damage. Mindcrank is a little different but could still fit in well. Gratuitous Violence is perfect for abusing Nekusar's ability.

You probably want Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots to protect Nekusar if he is to be a main part of your game plan.

Temple Bell.

Obviously Wheel of Fortune and Wheel of Fate could be great here, but they're not the most budget-friendly. :)

Nekusar is a very interesting commander, and there are many options as far as his decks go. Best of luck!

As usual, I love the deck! It reminds me of my first commander deck, Il Principe, however, you do a much better job focusing on Machiavelli as a whole. Seeing as how he was tortured on The Rack, have you ever considered adding it for flavor (or Iron Maiden for function)?

I'm sure that Niccol Machiavelli, wherever he may rest, rule, and burn, approves of this deck.

You know what's a really nice way to lose friends? Equipping a Grafted Exoskeleton onto or enchanting Nekusar with Phyresis. Wound Reflection is also really nice.

More wheels are always nice. Windfall, Time Reversal, Winds of Change, Wheel and Deal, Magus of the Wheel, Teferi's Puzzle Box, etc.

More forced draw/damage you can run are Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Fevered Visions, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Well of Ideas, Otherworld Atlas, Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Iron Maiden, etc.

Since you're running Price of Knowledge, you also can consider cards like Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, and Devastation Tide for the purposes of filling up your opponents' hands for maximum damage.

I personally do not see how Notion Thief synergizes at all with Nekusar, he may just be control, or I may just be completely stupid.

you don't have all of the 1 blue draw spells...Brainstorm, Ponder

and you have dead cards

Wurmcoil Engine is this just a scary card?, Soul of New Phyrexia just run a counterspell or something, Library of Leng just run some recursion, Dispeller's Capsule and Executioner's Capsule just run regular removalIron Maiden am I missing something cause it doesn't seem like you are playing staxs. Cranial Plating Its commander why are you swinging at people?

Anguished Unmaking --->FragmentizeVindicate---> this removal will depend on your play group. but generally having more artifact/enchantment removal is more important or just play Spell PierceEthersworn Adjudicator-->anything else this is way too slow and costs way too much mana for a combo deck to realistically play. Remember you are just trying to cum onto the board the GTFO not sit there.Rhystic Study--->Mystic Remora you can keep bothBeacon of Unrest---> Any other kind of recursion this is too hard to cast

alright, so I did some more digging - I've been kicking around a similar deck idea for a while. here's some of the stuff you might be interested in:

Pain for everyone:

Citadel of Pain, Copper Tablet, Power Surge (read the errata for this one, it makes more sense, Shadows of the Past, Pyrohemia, Pestilence, Dark Suspicions (or Bulwark, depending. kinda mutually exclusive), Rivalry, Skullcage, Wheel of Torture, Iron Maiden and Circle of Affliction

No creatures for You!

Death Pits of Rath (which couples well with Pyrohemia and Pestilence from earlier), along with Circle of Flame, Heat Stroke, Magmatic Core, Mudslide, Wave of Terror, War's Toll, Storage Matrix, and Noetic Scales.

Punishment and protection

Pia's Revolution, War's Toll, Bitter Feud (kinda a furnace of wrath - but only for those two against each other), Defense Grid.

probably some stuff in here you considered already, just figured I'd sift through this stuff and see if anything was to your liking

I really like this deck. It definitely puts a target on your back since people like drawing cards, but not losing life for doing so. You may consider adding Propaganda just to keep people from attacking you. I was confused at the addition of Glistening Oil at first, but then I realized you can put it on your commander and kill VERY quickly, great interaction. The deck looks pretty tuned, but if you were looking for different options, you might consider Iron Maiden or Viseling so they get damaged based on the number of cards in hand or extra forced card draw like Fascination, Prosperity, Minds Aglow, Kami of the Crescent Moon, or Dictate of Kruphix. May even consider Past in Flames to get back those instants and sorceries in the late game. Just suggestions, but again, it looks pretty good as is so I'm not even sure what you would take out.

Also, don't forget Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Curiosity are a lethal combo even if they aren't infinite.
