Magus of the Wheel Discussion

Do not use Armillary Sphere. Sunforger is one of red/white's best cards in edh. Not using it is a mistake. All of the cards that you list under 'tempo' save Sol Ring, Skullclamp, and maybe Magus of the Wheel should probably be replaced.

Hi, I really like the deck and I've made a lot of mono red decks recently so hopefully I can add some good suggestions:

Daretti, Scrap Savant - I think even for pure looting he is a great addition and meshes well with squee. Red has the corner on the market for artifact recursion so it might be a good idea to consider Goblin Welder too. Artifacts like Memory Jar or Eldrazi Monument(flying is pretty relevant with goblins) are excellent in mono red and win games.

Past in Flames/Recoup - Personally I include them in every mono red build, they are pure gas when you need it either from the hand or graveyard. Almost 1/4 of your deck is sorcery/instant spells so they could be relevant.

Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/Runehorn Hellkite/Magus of the Wheel - Unfortunately Wheel of Fortune doubled in price recently but the other options are great when you find yourself needing gas to close out a game.

Goblin Chieftain/Goblin Warchief - Haste is extremely important for goblin tribal. Krenko and company draw a lot of hate so it is best when you can tap them immediately or attack.

Anyways hope these help!

Seizan, Perverter of Truth is a really nice addition to Nekusar EDH, since he burns, and allows Nekusar to burn your opponents some more.

Bloodchief Ascension synergizes well with Mindcrank, so there's that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I can tell, I can only see two wheels in this deck (Time Reversal and Whispering Madness). In my opinion, you cannot have a Nekusar EDH without a decent number of wheels. I would suggest Wheel of Fate, Reforge the Soul, Molten Psyche, Windfall, Winds of Change, and Magus of the Wheel.

You also can try out Price of Knowledge and Dark Suspicions. You also can consider Gaze of Adamaro, Sudden Impact, Runeflare Trap, and Stormbreath Dragon.

I have to agree with Pixel Ninja, your land count is too high, as far as recommendations, one of the biggest mistakes I see in Nekusar decks is lack of protection for him. He's a main part of your strategy so, I would reccomend Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves to go with the cloak you already have in there. Also maybe Magus of the Wheel for another wheel effect.

This needs some Yawgmoth's Will for sure, or take out Magus of the Wheel and replace with Magus of the Will. Maybe Past in Flames as well? Definitely want one or the other I think

Sweet build, definitely like where it's going, but you need some more protection for Nekusar, he's your main engine. So Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots are a must, maybe Whispersilk Cloak.

Maybe Fate Unraveler for another nekusar effect. Also, Magus of the Wheel for more card draw, same with Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Fevered Visions.

Finally for another win con maybe sneak in The Locust God.

Fantastic deck! Looks easy and fun to play and will catch a lot of players off guard. Great work. Have you considered stuff like Magus of the Wheel or Reforge the Soul to help you get some more artifacts in your graveyard (which Daretti can target)? Maybe even some options for self-milling?

Since you like playing mono-red, I wonder if you could take a look at my Purphoros deck. Its strategy is obviously different compared to this deck's, but you might have some insights I've overlooked. Thanks.
