evncrbch on Nekusar's Wheel in the Sky

cdkime - I also had Jace Beleren and Temple Bell on my list, so it's good to hear some confirmation there. As for tutors, I think I'm only running two with Mystical Tutor and Demonic Tutor. Mystical Tutor I think stays for sure because I can wheel, and hold priority to cast the tutor, place a wheel on top of my deck, then draw it and use it. You make a good point about drawing enough cards that I don't need a lot of tutors, so maybe I will toy with cutting Demonic Tutor, the downside of course being I sacrifice some ability to find cards for specific scenarios. One thing I am worried about with cutting Breathstealer's Crypt is not having enough damage. Your argument against Sire Of Insanity is valid, I will pay close attention to that as I continue to test the list before purchasing any updates. I was also underwhelmed with Lim-Dul's Vault, so I'm glad to hear someone else thinks it's not super strong here. As for Seizan, Perverter of Truth, I really like this guy. With Nekusar out, he's dealing 4 extra damage per turn to each opponent, and he helps me dig through the deck faster to find more wheels, draw spells, etc.

I think my main concern is not having enough ways to hurt my opponents when they draw cards. Perhaps I need to add Kederekt Parasite back in to make sure I have enough effects. I do think Spiteful Visions needs to stay out though. I don't think I have enough in the way of defence to manage hurting myself as well as being hurt by the rest of the table. Are there any other pain permanents I'm missing that you know of?

cdkime - I actually just removed Teferi's Puzzle Box but I think I am going to try to find room for it again. I have seen Chasm Skulker in lists before, and cannot say I have actually tried it yet. I probably will try testing him out, but I'm just not sure what he replaces yet. I also removed Kederekt Parasite recently. He is good when Nekusar is out, but otherwise there are so few red permanents in the list that if they remove Nekusar they effectively removed Kederekt Parasite as well. Psychosis Crawler was originally in the list, but I don't think he is worth the five mana investment, as you said. Sangromancer is a neat defensive card that I will probably test out. Finally, Smoke seems like a perfect card for this list. It's great against the decks that go wide, and good against a generic creature-based "value" deck. Its only weak spot is it's dead versus voltron lists, but that just means I need to be smarter with my removal and countermagic. Great find, thanks so much for brining that card to my attention, and thanks for all of your other suggestions and analysis. If you wouldn't mind taking a look, what cards in the mainboard right now would you think about cutting for some of these suggestions or other cards in the maybeboard, and why would you choose those cards? Cutting cards always seems to be the hardest part of EDH deckbuilding for me, so I would greatly appreciate the assistance there.

Agree completely on infect, but figured I would suggest it anyway.

I also looked at your list a bit more in-depth, and wanted to add some more suggestions:

Teferi's Puzzle Box--massive damage and disrupting your opponents' hands.

Chasm Skulker--with massive card draw, this can be quite potent, spawning a swarm of blockers on its death.

Kederekt Parasite--inexpensive to cast, and if you have your commander on the field, his effect will trigger.

Psychosis Crawler--I have had mixed results with this one, mostly because I'd rather use the 5 mana to cast other things. When I actually put it on the field, it works quite well.

Sangromancer--With the discard effects from wheels, this can net you obscene amounts of health.

Smoke--inexpensive to cast, and you are not generally tapping down your creatures.

Hey there,

Nekusar is my favorite commander and ive been tuning him since printing, I noticed a fellow nekusar player needs some help

My list certainly isnt budget bit its very fast and competitive, maybe itll give you some ideas! Its a primer in progress

Competitive multiplayer nekusar primer if you want to see what a Competitive primer looks like :)

Some budget options i would recommend

Rakdos Charm

Breathstealer's Crypt

Phyrexian Tyranny

Arcane Denial

Liliana's Caress

Memory Jar

Winds of Change

Incendiary Command

Day's Undoing

Blasphemous Act

Deadly Tempest

Wheel of Fate

Toxic Deluge

Mind Over Matter and Dream Halls are wheel engines that really power up nekusar

Budget creatures

Kederekt Parasite

Magus of the Jar

Magus of the Will (budget Yawgmoth's Will

Dualcaster Mage (budget Snapcaster Mage

Magus of the Wheel

Whirlpool Warrior

Noggle Ransacker

Seizan, Perverter of Truth

Sire Of Insanity

Tezzeret the Seeker can cheat in Teferi's Puzzle Box or ramp

Mindcrank + bloodchief ascension = infinite mill/damage/life

Hope that helps :) big ups to the lich king

TheVectornaut on Modern Locust Combo. Help me Improve!

Speaking of jank The Locust God combos, here's my take:

Dire Undercurrents + Panharmonicon + Kederekt Parasite

Always wanted to find some use for the Undercurrents.

This seems really hilarious to play! I feel like Cruel Reality, Curse of Bloodletting, Fate Unraveler, Kederekt Parasite, and Sin Prodder could fit in your deck, Cruel Reality and Curse of Bloodletting would be good with killing one problematic player, or as good leverage to hold over anyone looking to attack you.Fate Unraveler, Kederekt Parasite, and Sin Prodder would be more like the cards you have in your deck, killing everybody equally. Dread and Orbs of Warding could help you with pillowforting, Dread with discouraging any attacks against you plus a huge threat, and Orbs of Warding can make sure that nobody can make you sacrifice things or any shenanigans like infinite mana plus Blue Sun's Zenith combos, plus the added upside of preventing a good amount of damage from token decks and things like that.

Doesn't look like you have any red permanents, so Kederekt Parasite's ability will never trigger.

ianare on Draw Yourself a Card my Man

I'm trying to build something similar, but focusing on the draw damage for now at least... Anyway, Flameblade Adept comboes nicely with Burning Inquiry and Reforge the Soul, and activates Kederekt Parasite ability.
