Magus of the Jar Discussion

dlamars on Thoughts on Inalla, Archmage Ritualist?

I think she makes a lot of the magus stronger. Magus of the Wheel, Magus of the Will, Magus of the Jar, even Magus of the Mirror could be fun. Not sure how competitive the deck will be but sure looks fun. The deck might be a bit mana hungry though.

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

goblinguiderevealpls on Deckusar, the Handrazer

Those are the priciest in the deck, though, most of the wheels and non foil cards were budget friendly.. yea i was restricted by budget for the first 3 years, but i built it more Fork / Dark Ritual + wheels, i find the upkeep draws like Howling Mine give your opponents too much card advantage/answers without Notion Thief and is just pure card advantage to opponents without nekusar or Underworld Dreams effects.

Some budget options

Cephalid Coliseum

Fevered Visions

Memory Jar

Toxic Deluge

High Tide

Notion Thief

Bubbling Muck

Seething Song

Vandalblast

Cyclonic Rift

Blasphemous Act

Oppression

Magus of the Wheel

Words of Waste

Magus of the Will

Deadly Tempest

Breathstealer's Crypt

Magus of the Jar

Trinket Mage

Winds of Change

Memory

Dualcaster Mage

Riptide Laboratory

Past in Flames

Mizzix's Mastery

Phyrexian Arena

Psychosis Crawler

Day's Undoing

Time Reversal

Winds of Change

Whispering Madness

Phyrexian Tyranny

Underworld Dreams

Fate Unraveler

Increasing Vengeance

Reverberate

Twincast

Cabal Ritual

Decree of Pain

Sire Of Insanity

Dream Halls

Archfiend of Ifnir

Runehorn Hellkite

Anvil of Bogardan

.. i could go on, i wasn't speaking purely of the budget cards i was just pointing out ive put 6 years and a lot of money into building mine so there are some budget ideas in that list

LittleBlueHero on How many new legends do ...

dbpunk Magus of the Vineyard, Magus of the Library, Magus of the Candelabra, Magus of the Disk, Magus of the Tabernacle, Magus of the Moat, Magus of the Bazaar, Magus of the Jar and Magus of the Future would like a word with you :)

That being said there was already Magus of the Moon, Magus of the Arena, Magus of the Scroll, Magus of the Coffers, Magus of the Abyss and Magus of the Mirror before they made Magus of the Will and Magus of the Wheel.

So the current magus breakdown is: White 3, Blue 3, Black 4, Red 4, Green 3. So You could be in luck with them evening out the total number of magus!

TrentenEnder on Drowning in Drawing

what is your opinion on Exhaustion for protection against people with answers it also makes them draw more cards on their turn taking more damage from nekusar, Intuition as a "cheap" tutor, Cerebral Vortex as a finisher and from my experience with this card my most favorite one, and Gitaxian Probe as a way to look and see if it's clear to play nekusar, what they can do to stop what your doing, it can see if you can have more time to set up more if they don't have anything to punish you, or just overall information. Also what's your opinion on trading out Memory Jar, and Wheel of Fortune, for Magus of the Jar, and Magus of the Wheel

This is a great and budget deck, although I would also recommend a Magus of the Wheel and perhaps a Magus of the Jar maybe.

maxon on Kami of the Rising Tides

Sorry all for the late reply. I hadn't noticed all the comments.

I actually came to this deck to make notify of some changes, for those curious.

Out: Trinket Mage, Coralhelm Commander, Deadeye Navigator, Dissolve, Aeon Chronicler, Aether Gale, Trailblazer's Boots, Soramaro, First to Dream, Mnemonic Wall

In: Forbid, Recall, Dissipation Field, Time Stop, Amnesia, Long-Term Plans, Mirror-Mad Phantasm, Ivory Tower, Kefnet the Mindful

To Leumas, yeah, Coralhelm Commander didn't do a whole lot in this deck, and has been cut. I never found myself wanting to bother with leveling it up. My initial thought was it would make for a nice flier with spare mana. Not worth it though. Chasm Skulker was in this deck before Kami was the commander, and it was fun, but with the return to hand effects I have in this deck, I either lose the counters on it, or if it's been destroyed, I lose the tokens. It's good, but not so much for this build. Ebony Owl Netsuke I do like as well, but I am specifically trying to stay away from effects like that. It's just personal preference. Quest for Ula's Temple is great too, but I don't want anyone knowing anything have in my hand, and it also suffers from my own return to hand spells like Devastation Tide. I could see Sphinx's Tutelage being in here at some point though. I will keep it in the maybeboard. Thanks!


To Love-in-Theory, you'll see I just added Kefnet the Mindful. It seems really broken for this deck, and I'm excited to see it hit the field. I like Levitation, but my deck usually doesn't swing unless I can get a little hit in, or when there is one opponent left, in which case this deck can easily defeat that last opponent after I've crafted my hand the whole game. Soramaro, First to Dream wasn't bad, but it wasn't doing a whole lot for me either. It's been cut for now. Patron of the Moon has come up minimally since I've added it, but I haven't been upset to see it, and it feels nice to be able to jettison land from my hand. Magus of the Jar I haven't really had come up too much so I can't really say one way or the other how well it's going to really work. That draw sphinx I don't really need. I could see getting it some day, but for now I'm gonna hold off.


To Trtl, I could never get rid of Thought Vessel. It's too good in this deck. The vessel is great for this deck not just because of bit of ramp but because of the no max hand size attribute. I've been suggested Library of Leng before, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. My playgroup doesn't do much in the way of wheel effects, though one of my friends was talking about making a deck with that new Locust god, and how good it would be with a bunch of wheels, so perhaps that will be a much needed inclusion in the future. I will add it to the Maybeboard. Forbid I DID just add, so that suggestion was spot on!
