Library of Leng

Artifact

You have no maximum hand size.

If an effect causes you to discard a card, discard it, but you may put it on top of your library instead of into your graveyard.

Library of Leng Discussion

hkhssweiss on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer [[PRIMER]]

@ derpytrollerZ

All of these cards that you mentioned works wonder for the type of deck Nekusar runs. Nekusar deals the damage therefore causing Curiosity to trigger, Nekusar decks doesn't swing with creatures, he himself deals the damage due to the way his ability is worded. Library of Leng is also to prevent the deck itself from decking out and selectively allowing you to keep which cards you want in a wheel effect.

@ Maizena I would say No Mercy or Kess, Dissident Mage can be your flex spot for Notion Thief . No Mercy is quite easy to remove nowadays and Kess is flexible as she can be good, but it really depends on what you have in your grave. Whereas Notion Thief with a resolve wheel can win you the game or give you an overwhelming advantage.

To be completely honest, just swapping Notion Thief for a land should be fine. You have enough ramp and a low enough curve to do so. Some other cards that stick out are Curiosity due to the fact that I don't think you'll be swinging with creatures too much, and Helm of Obedience because the chance of whiffing or just not getting a good card. Library of Leng is another card you could potentially remove.

carpecanum on Vicious Ninjutsu

Instead of only unblockables i've had a lot of fun with ETB creatures that have flying. Ninjitsu a Pilgrim's Eye back into your hand for another land, Hostage Taker to steal stuff or a Draining Whelk for counterspelling.

A fun combo is Library of Leng with Putrid Imp . Discard your highest cmc card to the top of your deck for maximum damage from Yuriko's ability.

Most ninja's are pretty cheap. Instead of saving 4 mana with Call to the Kindred you could use Arcane Adaptation and have all your unblockable guys become ninjas.

multimedia on The Focus Locus(t)

Hey, nice start, but The Locust God is fueled by mass draw spells and I don't see very many here.

Archivist is good and his ability is called a wheel. You'll hear this term a lot in Commander and what it means is all players or just you shuffle some number of cards from hands and/or graveyard into library and then draw cards. This effect is very good with Locust because he triggers for each single draw therefore if you draw seven cards you make seven 1/1 Insects. Drawing seven of more cards from casting one card is very good.

Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Expedite
  • Browbeat
  • Flame Fusillade
  • Renegade Tactics
  • Rile
  • Slip Through Space
  • Warlord's Fury
  • Dual Casting
  • Curiosity
  • Jalira, Master Polymorphist
  • Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer
  • Rummaging Goblin
  • Epic Experiment
  • Mechanized Production

Good luck with your deck.


RyProv on Izzet's locus god advice?

Jace's Archivist is a nice repeatable wheel. Jushi Apprentice can get ridiculous with large hand sizes, doubling each turn.

May want to consider having burn effects that trigger on creatures entering the battlefield instead of spells being cast such as Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors . (JK, just realized Purph got super expensive)

Library of Leng is an excellent card giving you a maximum hand size and allowing you to draw again the cards you discarded in a wheel.

Amazing deck! I think this works good enough to win but to be sure I have a view suggestions and I will explain you why:

  • Consecrated Sphinx : Whenever you wheel with cards as Windfall with this on the board you'll get, with 3 opponents where 1 of them has 7 cards on hand, 49 cards, 49 insects! THATS INSANE!

  • Thought Vessel : Because it is not only a mana rock you can use it with too much draw to keep all of the cards.

  • Toothy, Imaginary Friend : this will be a very big threat after a short time of 2 wheels or something, because it is big and if you remove it there will be small threats that are bigger together!

  • Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive : Maybe you don't even need this, but with a small army of insects it is very nice to have this on the battlefield

  • Psychic Vortex : Maybe it isn't that great, but when you play this in late game you don't need that many lands, and with Library of Leng into play you have nothing to worry about!

I hope this suggestions help you to improve this deck even more!

saint5one on Nekusar Wheel - my first deck

3 weeks ago

Thanks for your feedback cdkime! a lot of solid points!

I am trying to build the deck as "budget friendly" as possible as it is my first deck and I'm still not willing to invest too much into a single deck. Because of this, I think I will include Master of the Feast , Jace Beleren & Dictate of Kruphix as I have already bought these :) but I can definitely see your point and I might exclude Howling Mine and Kami of the Crescent Moon . As you mentioned i have also noticed that Nekusar without any support/extra dmg pr. card draw etc. is more harm than good.

The combo you are mentioning with Temple Bell i dont quite understand, will Mind Over Matter not only untap it once, meaning i get to draw one extra card?

Library of Leng seems really really good and will definitely be included!

I can see why Niv-Mizzet & The locust god would be good - the locust god is too expensive atm. but i might include Niv-Mizzet and Curiosity

I have looked on Cyclonic Rift as well, but its too expensive atm. unfortunately.

I will make a few changes to the deck in about an hour or so if you wanna take a look please do - all feedback is appreciated!
