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.

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.

Good news and bad news:

The good news: Almost every piece of the deck is relevant. I'm assuming that Kher Keep and Ghitu Encampment are for blocking purposes, and that your burn is for removal or maybe occasional lethal, since your wincon is Adamaro and the Kederekt Parasite engine.

The bad news: You don't have very good card choices. While Lightning Bolt and Terminate are solid cards, I've never seen Searing Blaze outside Pauper. You have a lot of ETB tapped lands, which could result in having no turn one plays. Rakdos Carnarium and similar lands are really only good if you can untap them with something like Candelabra of Tawnos and Rocky Tar Pit is much worse than Bloodstained Mire. In Legacy, you're going to need Badlands or at least Blood Crypt. As for the nonland cards, many of them are interesting but irrelevant. Urza's Armor is a great way to counter the damage from Spiteful Visions, but the fact of the matter is that without any ramp, you're almost never going to cast a 6cmc card before the game ends. Kederekt Parasite itself needs a red permanent on board, which can be removed in response to triggers. And the Words cycle, including Words of War, while a cool idea, are a never going to be good because, especially in Legacy, paying mana to not draw cards is a very bad idea.

Basically, the deck works, but is far too slow for a format in which decks can consistantly win earlier than turn 4. My guess is that this is meant for casual, in which case this is a really cool idea that would definately work. If this is the case, for future reference, Casual and Legacy are two very different formats.

Hey @screamer51.

I love nekusar and everything about him, I started building him as soon as he was spoiled, and now have an insanely tuned and budgetless competitive multiplayer edh deck

Anyways, what would I recommend for budget casual constructed?

As you can see by my deck, i learned that nekusar loves Wheel of Fortune and is more of a spellslinger draw theme than zombie tribal.

That being said, if you want to build around the lich king, creatures should be your last priority,

If i were to make a casual nekusar constructed that is effective, i would run things like Reforge the Soul, Liliana's Caress, Time Reversal

In a 20 life format, nekusar only needs 3 "draw 7" or mass loot spells to kill an opponent, and thankfully a majority of these are cheap.

Reforge the Soul

Day's Undoing

Waste Not

Megrim

Fevered Visions

Wheel of Fate

Burning Inquiry

Windfall

Whispering Madness

Molten Psyche

Dark Deal

Cerebral Vortex

Winds of Change

Second to wheels and forced draw, nekusar is kind of high cmc for a creature, so things like Nightscape Familiar can help you cast more spells faster, speaking of more spells, grixis has access to a beautiful array of rituals that you can chain into nekusar much earlier than turn 5 and also allow you to cast more wheels after refreshing your hand

The budget rituals include

High Tide

Bubbling Muck

Dark Ritual

Seething Song

Desperate Ritual

Pyretic Ritual

Cabal Ritual

Cards like Geth's Grimoire and Jace's Archivist can easily win you the game if left unchecked, and there are other forms of draw damage in Phyrexian Tyranny Fevered Visions Underworld Dreams Spiteful Visions

As far as cheap counterspells, Arcane Denial is BONKERS cuz it can deal draw damage with its draw, Sign in Blood is a cheap card draw that you can use to draw OR kill opponents by stacking it with nekusar.

Cards that save you from wheels decking you out

Memory

Library of Leng

Laboratory Maniac

Other than "wheel" and countermagic, you can also mill opponents with Mindcrank or Sphinx's Tutelage, reanimate wheeled creatures with stuff like Stitch Together, or run discard like Despise or Duress, and Cephalid Coliseum is INSANE as a cheap 1-of in edh, id be scared to see what 3 or 4 could do.

Lastly, a spell decks worst weakmess is CREATURES

now im going to assume you're not going to be slinging Damnation around, but theres tons of budget alternatives in the likely case that opponents will have more creatures than you

Deadly Tempest

Decree of Pain

Extinguish All Hope

And if you're still itching to run creatures even though i would not advise many, here are a few options thar nekusar has liked in the past

Nightscape Familiar

Kederekt Parasite

Sire Of Insanity

Goblin Electromancer

Jace's Archivist

Magus of the Wheel

Magus of the Jar

Fate Unraveler

Master of the Feast

Noggle Ransacker

Whirlpool Warrior

Laboratory Maniac

Hope this helps

Kederekt Parasite won't work because you don't have any red permanents... lands are still colorless. The only red cards you have are instants/sorceries. I can't think of anything to add off the top of my head to make it work, however.

And now you have a turn 3 nut draw!

Play two Kederekt Parasites on turn two, and by some miracle (fitting for the card type) you top deck Reforge the Soul next turn. Play it for two mana, draw into Burning Inquiry and deal 20 damage of burn on turn 3!
