Minds Aglow Discussion

I'm with Nexys here, I'm loving this deck. I might suggest some curses! It'll lead to a really fun dynamic, and attacks will be much more frequent. Cards like Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist, (Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is also good), Curse of the Nightly Hunt is devastating, Goblin Spymaster serves much the same purpose as the above, Curse of Opulence gets the chaos going early, Curse of Verbosity is mutually beneficial, and Minds Aglow, Tempt with Vengeance, and Tempt with Reflections can all help you feed off of the group's efforts.

I forgot to mention earlier that a political card can also be cards that give a backhanded gift (ie Nin, the Pain Artist). Also, not listing every curse in Magic's history.

Moving away a bit from high cost ramp, mill, and limited effect draw/discard.

Thanks for the tips JethroWilkins. I was running some of those "draw each upkeep" cards before, but disliked giving card advantage to opponents without guaranteed pain. I also found that Spiteful Visions caused me a lot of pain. Minds Aglow and Fascination seem like descent includes though as I like the on demand forced draw.

consuming aberation is good, but I think there are better cards that would synergize more. The goal is to deal people damage from drawing, not mill and swing with a huge creature. Probably take out Fog Bank because you already have Guard Gomazoa. Master of the Feast could backfire if someone removes Nekusar, then you'll just be giving opponents free cards. Same deal with Howling Mine, Dictate of Kruphix, and Forced Fruition. Better to stick to reliable spells that you can control in my opinion, BUT!! It's good to keep a couple in if you're able to protect Nekusar, especially if you keep in other creatures and enchantments that do the same thing as Nekusar. Just something to think about. Grafted Exoskeleton is more reliable than Phyresis. Megrim is just a worse version of Liliana's Caress and Raiders' Wake. I doubt anyone is going to fall for Minds Aglow unless you can manage to flash in something that screws them, but if you have enough mana you can just do it yourself and screw everyone anyway. Wheel of Fortune would be great, but it is a bit expensive.
