Master of the Feast Discussion

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!

cdkime on Nekusar Wheel - my first deck

This is a pretty solid start. I have a couple suggestions based on my own experiences with Nekusar.

I would recommend cutting Howling Mine , Kami of the Crescent Moon , Master of the Feast , Jace Beleren and Dictate of Kruphix for a couple reasons.

First and foremost, these cards put you at a competitive disadvantage. While it may seem equal, you have to think of your opponents as a collective whole. These cards allow you to draw 1 card; with three opponents, your opponents are getting 3 cards total. That increases the chance that at least somebody will have drawn into their answer. Master of the Feast is an exception, you get no cards, while your opponents get 3. That's not worth a large, flying body.

Second, Nekusar really wants large, explosive plays. Chipping away one additional generally does not make a significant difference in the game.

Finally, with the exception of Dictate of Kruphix and Jace Beleren , your opponents get to take advantage of the additional card before you are granted additional cards. Not only do they put you at a long-term disadvantage, they start harming your chances of victory pretty much immediately.

I would include Temple Bell on this list, but I wanted to address it separately. Temple Bell has some potential alongside Mind Over Matter , as it allows you to mill yourself to 0. Run alongside Laboratory Maniac (which you can use the combo to dig for and then cast), you can use this to win the game.

Library of Leng is a powerhouse in Nekusar. You can discard the cards you do not want, but keep those you do, engineering a better hand with each wheel.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and The Locust God are both strong ways to capitalize on the amount of card draw you are generating.

Curiosity can generate significant card advantage with Nekusar. When enchanting Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , you can loop damage and drawing until you choose to break the loop or run out of cards.

Cyclonic Rift is a pretty solid card in commander, functioning as an early-game bounce spell and a later-game method of clearing the board.

I have found Sigil of Sleep to be a nifty little card, as it can turn a single wheel effect into a mini Cyclonic Rift .

Hope some of that helps.

Hey, Chasmolinker, thanks for the comment! Mortician Beetle could be strong, I guess, but I don’t think I have nearly enough sacrifice to make it worth playing. Gatekeeper of Malakir could go in for Master of the Feast , and that might be a replacement I make.

I was already thinking about switching those two cards that you said, for Gutterbones and Spawn of Mayhem (once the price dies down for that one). I think both of those would be upgrades.

Anyways, I’ll be sure to test your suggestions out, and thanks again for taking a look at my deck!

Kederekt Parasite, only works if you have a red permanent (Artifact, Enchantment, Creature or Planeswalker), you don't have any. Your playing in a similar space to Owling Mine (Ebony Owl Netsuke) decks, but wanting to leverage discard, so Gnat Miser might make more sense as a 1 drop creature. There are a couple of 3 drop creatures which are worth considering too Master of the Feast and Adamaro, First to Desire. Lastly here are a couple of spells that cause hand discard and draw; Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fate and one that plays well with Burning Inquiry if you keep it Runeflare Trap. Hope this helps, good luck with your brew.

Hey, RedmundR2, hungry000, I’m thinking about making some changes from Ravnica Allegiance, namely, switching Dread Wanderer for Gutterbones and Master of the Feast for Spawn of Mayhem. Gutterbones seems like a strict improvement, as the trigger to come back is much easier to pull off, and it can utilized to get lots of Pack Rat triggers. I’ve thought about it, and I don’t really like the idea of giving my opponent free cards. I think Spawn of Mayhem is probably better. It has trample, can grow to be stronger than Master of the Feast, an that last ability can both help finish off my opponent or trigger Spectacle on another’s copy of Spawn or Gutterbones.

I’m curious as to what you guys think about these changes. I’ve tested these things and they seem to work very well so far. Gutterbones will probably go in now, but I’ll have to wait on the price of Spawn of Mayhem to die down a bit to put that in.

sorry im late to the party fellas!

I played with this idea in standard a few years ago using Waste Not and Master of the Feast. its janky and inconsistent, but i could see some modern tech making it more feasible.

anyway, idk if you still have any intention of pursuing this, but its a fun style to brew with, and i'd be happy to lend a hand if you still wanna go down this road
