Kami of the Crescent Moon Discussion

I'm wondering why you run Notion Thief at all in the deck. It definitely slows down Nekusar most of the time. Maybe use Dictate of Kruphix instead? Or Kami of the Crescent Moon

Hey there. Nekusar is near and dear to my heart. He was my first Commander. I don't play it anymore, but I remember the playstyle well and I remember it being fun to play. You're running a list similar to mine too actually. A lot of Nekusar decks I see don't run Phyrexian Tyranny for some reason. I always found it to be an all-star of pain dealing.

Anyway, I'm just gonna spew some cards at you. Hopefully you like one of them.

My current favorite deck to play is commanded by Kami of the Crescent Moon, and my favorite way to win with that deck is Laboratory Maniac. So, to help me draw out my library as fast as possible I run Jushi Apprentice. Being that you can target any player, this could be a brutal way for you to deal a massive amount of damage to someone if you have all your "pain when draw" effects out. I'm assuming you usually have a pretty full hand when you play this and would be able to flip this easily.

Next is Gray Merchant of Asphodel. He's so common to see these days, but with all the black symbols in the enchantments in this deck, he's a house! You will surely deal a good chunk of damage, and gain a fat stack of life to help offset the damage you do end up taking from your own deck.

This next one might not be what you're trying to do, but Polluted Bonds did some work for me when I played it. It gives the opponent the option to not play lands to avoid the damage, but I've never found people all that willing to put themselves back on mana.

Lastly, in my Kami deck, which also draws a lot, I've found Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar to be really good at allowing me to dig deep for all the right spells. It's just good sift power.

Anyway, +1 from me. This is a nice build.

I can't speak for modern, but he would make a great alternate general in my Kami of the Crescent Moon EDH. If you wanna peep the list, it's here: That MASTERLESS Little Kami. I don't have him in there yet, but I usually have more than 7 cards in hand when playing it. I will admit though he'll be better in the 99. It's also a budget friendly build.

So basically you are going for a Nekusar, the Mindrazer type deck minus the black? Well here are a few cards you could consider Kami of the Crescent Moon, Jace Beleren, Temple Bell, Fevered Visions, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Ophidian Eye, and Cerebral Vortex.

Also something worth mentioning, Day's Undoing does not trigger your commander's effect. this is because Day's ends the turn as part of the effect and by doing so removes all of your commander's effect triggers from the stack. However, the deck recycle would still be quite useful I suppose.

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.

Kami of the Crescent Moon tends to work well. Force that card draw.

First things first, you will need a decent amount of mana acceleration in order to outpace your enemies. Mana Vault, Coalition Relic, and Mana Crypt all help with this. Why do I say this? It's because super-competitive decks like Doomsday Zur are, best case scenario, a turn 4 win.

Second off, you can't really have a Nekusar EDH without more wheel and forced draw effects. May I suggest Jace's Archivist, Magus of the Wheel, Wheel of Fate, Memory Jar, Wheel of Fortune, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Wheel and Deal, Dark Deal, and Reforge the Soul for wheels, and Font of Mythos, Kami of the Crescent Moon, and Howling Mine for forced draw.

maxon on Favorite COLORLESS or blue utility ...

I've been playing sea monster EDH for a while, and I started with Thassa, God of the Sea, and when Peer Through Time came, out, I merged those two decks and played with Teferi, Temporal Archmage as the commander for a while. I have found my favorite way to play sea monster is with Kami of the Crescent Moon.

And on that note, all EDH players, give a shout out to your favorite utility lands that would work in a mono blue environment.

In case you wanted to dip a toe into what this deck does, you may check it out here: That MASTERLESS Little Kami.
