Shrine of Limitless Power May be nice, but it'd take a while to get up. However, it can be useful in a scenario where you haven't drawn waste not, so you can let it gather a few counters.
Barbed Shocker Seems pretty fun. If you can get it's damage through, you could get quite a bit of waste not triggers on turn 4 if you had the hand.
Guul Draz Specter Benefits from your opponent having no cards in hand as well.
Liliana's Caress Also punishes opponents for discarding, without life gain and combat damage being dealt to them, they'd lose within 10 discards. Megrim can be a sideboard card maybe? It costs more than liliana's caress, so it's not as good.
Painful Quandary seems pretty good IMO. They most likely will pick discarding a card, so your basically set.
Quest for the Nihil Stone Also seems fun, punishing opponents for having no cards in hand heavily.

I believe this is meant to be a standard deck.
Anyway, yeah. If not standard, then go for it.

Like i said in the original post, nekusar hates creatures, in fact he kind of hates anything living/not dead lol. he is a wizard spell commander and his ability revolves around draw spells, therefore i would run 2 or 3 nekusar and very few actual combat creatures
Nekusar is a wizard, he isnt meant for combat he is meant to augment spells :) thraximundar and gravecrawler are good cards, but those are meant for zombie tribal. Which is usually dimir, but thrax is a different deck entirely and costs too much to hard cast so basically is asking for reanimation
If you want a zombie tribal deck, Sedris, the Traitor King or Grimgrin, Corpse-Born is your man, both have a place in my heart but sadly zombie tribal is very slow and often doesnt perform well.. i used to play grimgrin but his performance dissapointed me and he is the "best" zombie tribal commander, even invested/tuned he still was meh :/
Personally, id remove most of the creatures outside of nekusar and replace it with rituals and wheels
To make a long story short, If i were to make a budget list itd look like:
3x Waste Not
Mass draw/discard spells 10
Counterspell + mass draw/graveyard shuffle 8
Ritual goodstuff 7
4x Dark Ritual
2x Bojuka Bog

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,
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.
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
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
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
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
Hope this helps

I love this! but if you want to keep the creatureless theme you need some more burn/draw cards likeBloodchief Ascension , Quest for the Nihil Stone , Shrieking Affliction , Liliana's Caress , Pyromancer Ascension, Trespasser's Curse, Vessel of Malignity ,Waste Not Everlasting Torment, (MAYBE (prob not) Imminent Doom)),Megrim, Necrogen Mists, Phyrexian ArenaUnderworld Dreams , Endless Whispers, Leyline of the Void, Magmatic Core, Spiteful Visions, Torment of Scarabs, Exquisite Blood, Gibbering Descent ,or if creatures are ok here are a couple ideas Genju of the Spires ,Satyr Firedancer , Hammer of Purphoros, Awaken the Ancient
