Nekusar, the Mindrazer Discussion

Jeleva is good.
I looked into my Nekusar, the Mindrazer for the cards I suggested. It relies on a strategy of forcing opponents to draw cards and take damage as well as milling them and making them take damage. Forking a Wheel of Fortune with Nekusar, the Mindrazer out equipped with a Helm of the Ghastlord and a Sphinx's Tutelage on the board and you have probably milled half of their deck/won the game.
Sire Of Insanity can be ridiculous fun if you pair it with Library of Leng in a Nekusar deck. Also Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind can be good too. Throw in a Stranglehold and your opponents have to top-deck a counter rather than tutoring for it.

ShadeDrakeKing unfortunately Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper only works with combat damage thus does not work with Vial Smasher's ability. Plus, this is a deck centered around Nekusar, the Mindrazer and not having blue would completely change the deck.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer would be sweet I'm not too sure about the triple colors he might work, it'll try to fit him in.

Second, Day's Undoing ends the turn as its final effect... And exiles Nekusar, the Mindrazer's damage trigger off the stack, as well as anything that triggered from the people drawing, shuffling, etc.
Additionally, you are missing one of the most damaging combos I know if in nekusar: Bloodchief Ascension+Mindcrank. While this may have something to do with your meta... It's a really solid combo. And lastly... Why no Hive Mind? Basically wins the game if it sticks for a turn
All that being said, this list is probably better than my current nekusar list :/

Entrei.....sigh, I guess I gotta explain some things to help you understand.
New to EDH? Nope. Been playing this and this format for a while actually. I did tag this deck as "casual" so it's not to be taken as seriously.
I never thought I'd have to defend Lightning Bolt. Really?! for 3.....that's value!! 3 may not seem like much when a player has 40 life total, but for a fast creature/planeswalker hit, it gets the job done. It is arguably one of the best cards in MTG and can easily fit into any format. I can only hope that I can imprint Isochron Scepter with it.
Collective Brutality is again...value. With Nekusar, the Mindrazer and the massive amount of card draw I put in this deck, I should not have a problem Escalating if I need to. This is a card I will keep an eye on and if I don't like the way it plays, I'll replace it with something else.
As far as Archive Trap goes, you are right that Mill is not exactly the focus, but with that being said, it does still play a factor in addition of the other effects.
Draw, Mill and/or Exile = less cards in library. Some that help:
- Consuming Aberration
- Sire of Stagnation
- Talent of the Telepath
- Jace, Memory Adept
- Archive Trap
- Jace's Erasure
- Sphinx's Tutelage
Cruel Ultimatum, you may be right, but I can't wait to use it.
Molten-Tail Masticore yeah yes.
Ninja of the Deep Hours, this is where I rely on Whispersilk Cloak, Higure, the Still Wind, Rogue's Passage and board wipes to get a hit in. The very worst, I'll discard him with Cathartic Reunion or wheel like effects.
This deck is all over the place and until I play it a few times, I'll be able to see what works well and what doesn't. Changes will come with time.

Actually The7thBobba i did have Nekusar, the Mindrazer in there but I took out red but realized i need a way to stop my opponent if im giving him all these cards. So i added a splash back in for Aggressive Mining and completly forgot about him. I was going to have Words of Wind to bounce after i lock down their lands but ot slows me down as well
