Add Blood Moon because other players should have twice the chance to suffer. Don't give up on mill just change how you do it, If you cant get Mind Over Matter or even if you do try grabbing Power Artifact and Basalt Monolith , power up slap one of their creatures for where is something like 1,000,000,000 and BAM draw them out or if you have Laboratory Maniac just hit one of your own creatures and win. Anyways, still looks like a fun deck.

I think I see where you are going with this deck, I have some ideas that might be fun or interesting for it. You might consider Jace's Archivist , Mind Over Matter , Laboratory Maniac and Psychosis Crawler as they would add a couple of routes for a card draw victory by either milling yourself with Laboratory Maniac or pinging opponents to death with Psychosis Crawler. If you do consider these adds then you may wand an old school eldrazi titan for mill protection. Looks fun, +1.

IAmTheWraith on Why is Library of Alexandria ...

It's banned because it's free card advantage that can be in every deck. If Library of Alexandria wan't banned, it would be in every deck, much like Sol Ring . While the mana acceleration of Sol Ring can be a lot, statistically players that play Sol Ring on turn 1 lose that game. Library is different. Library encourages interactive play, while not punishing you for doing nothing by letting you draw. Also, it can be comboed:

Blossom Dryad + Mind Over Matter + Library of Alexandria + cards in hand=infinite draw.

Do you see where I'm going with this?

If you already have Temple Bell and Mind Over Matter in this deck I would say you should almost definitely add Azami, Lady of Scrolls . It's an easy infinite mill "combo."

BTW, if you put Snapcaster Mage in this deck I would recommend adding Mission Briefing right away. It's arguably better than Snapcaster Mage in most formats and almost always gonna be a total upgrade in EDH. The main reason: if you target a card and you don't have enough mana to cast Snapcaster Mage and cast that spell the same turn... well Snapcaster Mage did shit. While Mission Briefing will allow you to target it this turn and put it into hand, which will allow you to cast it for alternative costs (example: Force of Will ) and also give you the opportunity to cast it next turn if you are running short on mana.

One last thing. You have a really good control shell here, but I think it would be worth throwing at least one board wipe in... Cyclonic Rift maybe? It may not be needed if you are using this deck primarily for 1 v 1's or if your meta is not creature heavy, but I would at least consider it.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All , is always a pretty decent card to throw into a deck.

The Temple Bell , Mind Over Matter combo works because Temple Bell allows you to draw a card which can then be discarded to Mind Over Matter to untap Temple Bell . You can then Temple Bell to draw another card, which itself can be discarded to Mind Over Matter , repeating the process as many times as you wish (at least until you run out of cards to draw or otherwise win the game).

Glad some of the other advice helped.

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!

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.
