Magus of the Jar Discussion

KALE434 on Discard EDH

Magus of the Jar and maybe Memory Jar itself I dont know you pretty much have a finished deck so not much needs to be said. Oh and maybe Blue Sun's Zenith for a finisher?

Adding a larger ramp package would make the deck faster, as well as synergize very nicely with the wheels. Nothing's better than playing out a hand of mana rocks and then wheeling away your slower opponent's hands and refilling your hand. Some nice cheap rocks are Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Fellwar Stone, Coldsteel Heart, Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence.

In addition, you might want to add a few more wheel (or wheel-like) effects, like Jace's Archivist, Molten Psyche, Windfall, and Magus of the Jar. With the additional draw power these provide, you could cut back slightly on redundant copies of effects, such as counterspells (I feel like you have a lot, but I dislike counterspells, so what do I know?).

ANd I bring more gifts for you to look at I used to run a discard deck back when I was into modern:P The Rack, Shrieking Affliction, Fate Unraveler Insidious Dreams, Archfiend of Ifnir, Magus of the Jar, Nin, the Pain Artist, Blue Sun's Zenith, Geth's Grimoire (If I was into izzet I would run this)

Now this may cost you a pretty penny but The Locust God

Pretty cool deck - looks rude and lethal! I wonder if this might be a turn 5 win though, unless you have a way to give Magus of the Jar haste when you play it on turn 4?

Have you looked at Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Magus of the Jar, Magus of the Wheel for forced drawing? Or Consuming Aberration with all the discarding?

Upvoted as well :)

Hey there,

Nekusar is my favorite commander and ive been tuning him since printing, I noticed a fellow nekusar player needs some help

My list certainly isnt budget bit its very fast and competitive, maybe itll give you some ideas! Its a primer in progress

Competitive multiplayer nekusar primer if you want to see what a Competitive primer looks like :)

Some budget options i would recommend

Rakdos Charm

Breathstealer's Crypt

Phyrexian Tyranny

Arcane Denial

Liliana's Caress

Memory Jar

Winds of Change

Incendiary Command

Day's Undoing

Blasphemous Act

Deadly Tempest

Wheel of Fate

Toxic Deluge

Mind Over Matter and Dream Halls are wheel engines that really power up nekusar

Budget creatures

Kederekt Parasite

Magus of the Jar

Magus of the Will (budget Yawgmoth's Will

Dualcaster Mage (budget Snapcaster Mage

Magus of the Wheel

Whirlpool Warrior

Noggle Ransacker

Seizan, Perverter of Truth

Sire Of Insanity

Tezzeret the Seeker can cheat in Teferi's Puzzle Box or ramp

Mindcrank + bloodchief ascension = infinite mill/damage/life

Hope that helps :) big ups to the lich king

You can add cards with wheel affects - discard hand and draw cards

Jace's Archivist and Magus of the Jar can do wonders in this deck

I think you might need a few creatures as well

Laboratory Maniac might be another win-con for the deck
