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.

Great deck list, I really appreciate your detailed explanation of each individual card inclusion.
Could you please explain why your list doesn't include Kederekt Parasite ? I'm tweaking my own list and can't quite figure out what the downside is.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer is not modern legal. Fortunately, there are other critters that do what he does: Kederekt Parasite and Fate Unraveler . If you add both of these, you can make drawing cards very painful for the opponent.
And I think Quest for Pure Flame would work well with this kind of strategy, since it could come down early, and activate as the enchantments ping the opponent, and be used to kill the opponent when you make them draw a bunch of cards, with Cerebral Vortex or Runeflare Trap or whatever.

Adding black would also let you run cards like Nekusar, the Mindrazer , Fate Unraveler , Kederekt Parasite , etc... as alternate win cons in case you lose your Smothering Tithe. Right now I'm a bit concerned that it's vulnerable to exile when Return to Dust and Merciless Eviction are format staples. Something like Into the Roil or Chain of Vapor would help you rescue your Smothering Tithe in that event. Barrin, Master Wizard would also be excellent for getting added utility out of your treasures.

I actually put Mindwrack Liege in the deck as a last-minute addition, given that I had nothing else to include in the first place, so I’ll take it out. Thanks for the tip about Hunted Horror, it would really work well with Thing in the Ice; including black also allows me to include other black horrors, like maybe Kederekt Parasite as an early creature, although many of my red horrors come down later, and Cryptborn Horror , although that may be a little redundant in this deck. In regards to the mana base, I am trying to keep this deck somewhat budget, but I will probably need to use fetchlands if I go Grixis. But overall, thanks for the help!

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

While I definitely see the enchantment synergy, having curses like Torment of Scarabs that deny your opponents resources and cards like Master of the Feast that give your opponents resources seems non-synergistic. I'd try to focus either on the curse plan or the Fate Unraveler plan to maximize your interactions.
White is a really useful color for a curse deck and is likely to be more effective than blue without more mill cards. It gives you access to the incredibly strong Overwhelming Splendor and occasionally useful Curse of Exhaustion. You can also play Hero of Iroas, Kor Spiritdancer, Sram, Senior Edificer, or Mesa Enchantress instead of Cloud Key. Bitterheart Witch is one way to get a Curse of Misfortunes into play to start the engine, although Heliod's Pilgrim is another possibility.
For a "draw to death" strategy, Unraveler can be supplemented by Underworld Dreams. If you go red, you could use Fevered Visions and Kederekt Parasite instead. This strategy benefits from symmetrical draw effects like Dictate of Kruphix and Howling Mine, or forced draw as you have with Master of the Feast. Having plenty of removal and/or hand disruption is important since your opponents will have more gas to work with. If the chip damage isn't getting the job done, Notion Thief is another great way to break the symmetry.
