Mill is a term for putting cards into grave from your deck, its a way of winning by your opponent not having any cards left in their deck and drawing a card, in which you lose the game, wheel is Wheel of Fortune or any other kind of "everyone discards/shuffles their hand and draws X cards" spells like the ones listed,

Timetwister is a power 9 card, just think of what it does in a draw damage deck!

cough Day's Undoing cough Memory

Mindcrank and Thought Scour are examples of mill

Wheel of Fate, Windfall, and Molten Psyche are examples of wheel effects.

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


Fevered Visions

Wheel of Fate

Burning Inquiry


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


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

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


Cyclonic Rift

Blasphemous Act


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


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



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

Thanks for the response!

I'm hesitant to put too much symmetrical graveyard hate in, since it really hurts my gearhulks too. Memory , Summary Dismissal, Magma Spray, Nahiri, the Harbinger, and Descend upon the Sinful are my anti-graveyard tech at the moment.

I think you're probably right about TitI. The matchup it's best in is probably BG, and Fatal Push and Grasp wreck it. More Blessed Alliance seems good, and maybe another Hour of Devastation or Descend for access to more board wipes.

Thanks again for the feedback! It's much appreciated :)

I am glad I read the comments about Hulking the Oblivion in at instant speed; that is a fantastic bit of rules lawyering that can hit like a truck.

However, I, like this deck's author, am running the very similar Memory instead. Isn't it a better target anyway? The first half of the card gives you time to find a more permanent solution while not giving away card advantage. Also, using the second half to reload during the opponent's end step is pretty solid.

Holy hell...just looked it up and that's pretty amazing.

So, cast Torrential Gearhulk, target Commit because the card is considered both an Instant and a Sorcery, but then with the trigger cast Memory instead? And I can do that without paying the 6CMC for Memory? End of their turn, cast Gearhulk and effectively replenish my entire hand?

cyclinggamer, That's why I have Scavenger Grounds in the SB, there's not many effects that do it, but to prep for things like Memory and Perpetual Timepiece, and also to counter GY focused decks.
