If you would like some suggestions,Drop:

Transguild Promenade (not a great mana filter)

painted bluffs (not great mana filter)

River of tears (some comp decks run this but personally i dont like it)

Metallurgic Summonings

Sunbird's Invocation

Duskmantle Seer (you have some high CMC cards)

Nucklavee (cmc too expensive)

Wizard Replica (use actual counterspells rather than creature ones)

Dissipate (use a different counterspell: Arcane Denial)

Ravenous Trap (Run bojuka bog instead)

Disdainful Stroke (not a great counterspell: trade out for undermine)

Horn of Greed (this cards actually alright to keep if you cant find a replacement)

Neurok Stealthsuit (actually mentioning this card because its great! glad to see someone use it)

Sphere of the Suns (theres better cheaper manarocks)

Traveler's Amulet (not great ramp)

Wayfarer's Bauble ()

Mystic Retrieval

Deny Existence (not great counterspell: trade out for Dream Fracture?)

Negate (get Counterspell instead)

God-Pharaoh's Gift (Too high of a cmc for what it does, when your deck gets further developed you will end up with less creatures)

Mind Stone (trade out for sol ring)

Dimir Charm (i like izzet charm better, not a super whole lot of 2 mana cards you want to destroy in edh)

Izzet Chronarch

You have a lot of instant and sorcery retrieval, Honestly with Nekusar in my opinion you should actually replace those cards with more copys (For example Windfall and Collective Defiance are basically copys since they do the same thing) = Consistency, its nice to grab whatever you want from the graveyard but you dont always have that option.Heres some cheap cards to fit in maybe? i play paper and im thinking paper prices, everything here should be under $3

Graven Cairns: Fantastic mana filter, too bad the rest of the cycles are incredibly cheap, this is the only super cheap one

Geier Reach Sanitarium

Extract from Darkness


Breathstealer's Crypt: This card is insane for what it is, it hits you too but its still worth it.

Whispering Madness

Geth's Grimoire


Library of Leng


Mystic Remora

Crosis's Charm

Dark Deal


Kederekt Parasite

Lim-Dul's Vault

Diabolic Vision




Phyresis and Tainted Strike, it feels good to kill players with infect after wheeling multiple times in one turn

Fevered Visions

Jace's Archivist


Collective Defiance

Temple Bell Great card, try to tap it at the end of their turns, or use when you need to topdeck a counterspell

This one is easy. Divide slots somewhat evenly between ping damage, wheels, defense, and control. Check out my deck @ Raze da' Roof ($40 Budget). It will get you probably about 80 cards, with the remaining slots being whatever you find fun. If you have the money to spare, get Kederekt Parasite, Liliana's Caress, Waste Not, or Underworld Dreams.

Also use Gatherer, Scryfall, T/O, or the MtG search engine of your choice to find all cards with the text "discard hand then draw cards" for wheels I might have missed.

Yes. Thats the creature. Kederekt Parasite could make a good engineer. Its similar in appearance and functions in a nekusar deck really well.

Kederekt Parasite could be the stinger from the first movie.

t3hdarkness on Nekusar, wheeling for style points.

How do you earn points?

You could probably afford to lose all of the CMC 6-7 Cards in exchange for a few more Pillowfort/Stax pieces depending on your meta or Megrim, Kederekt Parasite, and Psychosis Crawler if you want to reinforce your main theme.

Kederekt Parasite does 1 damage to opponent on each draw if you have a red permanent, which is covered by Elder Mastery. Now when Kederekt does damage, Elder Mastery makes them discard two cards. Unlike many similar effects, Elder Mastery does not require combat damage, any damage will do. So for each card your opponents draw for any reason, they lose a life and get to discard two, effectively locking them out of casting any non-instant speed cards they draw if they have 1 or no cards in hand when they draw. They will never be able to play more lands and they will hate you forever. If you want to rub it in, Forced Fruition with Megrim or Liliana's Caress just stops the game. It's the perfect lesson for that one guy who just spends the whole game casting cantrips.
