Nekusar, the Mindrazer Discussion

I would recommend more lands. very few decks can run with only 32 lands. Go for at least 36.
Also, if you want to try and kill with drawing cards, I would check out stuff like Nekusar, the Mindrazer, or even just Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind.

I think you should, that card is such a staple for blue in commander. Arcane Denial even helps your opponent a bit after. That kind of card I would rather use in a deck like Nekusar, the Mindrazer to punish them for drawing those cards.

I just got a foil Cyclonic Rift recently in a trade and I have only got to use it once so far but I have to say it is pretty awesome using that overload cost and I definitely recommend that you give the card a try to see for yourself here.

This looks like a fun deck. A bit more spendy than my own Drawn unto Death.

Have you considered getting Otherworld Atlas to run with Mind Over Matter? If you have three cards and Nekusar, the Mindrazer on the field, you go infinite and win.

I never had the honor (hah) of playing against Leo, but I saw that coming a mile away. He had too much built into him to enable a lockout. Granted I could do the same with Nekusar, the Mindrazer and Helm of the Ghastlord, but that has a lot more moving parts to get going. Honestly, if he wasn't a legendary creature, I don't think he would be banned. Having access to that at all times was too much. If anything, this should be a reason to bring back the banned as commander list. There are far worst things that exist in commander, both casual and competitive, and banning Leo simply because he could always be available sucks.

Hmm... I have a question for the competitive guys here: would Nekusar, the Mindrazer running a storm esque shell (paradox engine, Aetherflux Reservoir) while popping in a Laboratory Maniac work in competitive? I know Jeleva is better for storm in general... but nekusar does allow for extra draw via Curiosity and the like, and soft locking via Elder Mastery type effects.

Even though Ydris isn't my style of commander, this is a great deck +1. This actually put me on the right track to making a decent commander using Nekusar, the Mindrazer. You also might consider using Nekusar in your deck as well.

Even if it also makes your opponent draw, I think Prosperity, Skyscribing and Fascination could be on the list.
They can be played in Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Leovold, Emissary of Trest or used with Spirit of the Labyrinth and Notion Thief.

+1 from me! Might I suggest: Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Chasm Skulker, Geth's Grimoire, Venser's Journal, Well of Ideas, also if you want to be REALLY mean you could give Nekusar, the Mindrazer some infect from Phyresis ;)
