Nekusar, the Mindrazer Discussion

Lilbrudder on You shall be punished for your sins.

My bad I missed that you had the card in their.

I would definitely do Crosis, the Purger. Then again Nekusar, the Mindrazer has some appeal as a punish people for gluttony and greed by making them eat till they die like the movie Seven. And you can do some Notion Thief shenanighans to further punish thier greed.

So basically you are going for a Nekusar, the Mindrazer type deck minus the black? Well here are a few cards you could consider Kami of the Crescent Moon, Jace Beleren, Temple Bell, Fevered Visions, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Ophidian Eye, and Cerebral Vortex.

Also something worth mentioning, Day's Undoing does not trigger your commander's effect. this is because Day's ends the turn as part of the effect and by doing so removes all of your commander's effect triggers from the stack. However, the deck recycle would still be quite useful I suppose.

We can't be friends because Nekusar, the Mindrazer hates everyone.

To be completely honest I dont really see any combos in this deck. To me this just looks like a poorly built wheel deck and if that was what you were trying to go for then I highly recommend you swap out Nin, the Pain Artist for Nekusar, the Mindrazer since he has actual synergy with wheel effects and then you could also add black to the deck for many different benefits.

My personal favorites are commanders like Patron of the Moon or Kefnet the Mindful, taking fringe cards like Flooded Shoreline, Floodbringer, Storm Cauldron, and Overburden and making them more viable. In a sense, Nekusar, the Mindrazer is kind of similar, as it takes good cards (like Wheel of Fortune) and gives them purpose.

How is the deck playing for you? Ive always found discard to be hard to build around in EDH unless you were making use of the wheels on the bus and Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Hypnotic Specter, Liliana's Caress, Abandon Hope, Banshee of the Dread Choir, and Hymn to Tourach all seem like solid includes for your deck. There are many, upon many black cards with the discard theme, these are just the ones that stood out to me on a quick search.

I think Marchesa 1.0 could be the Commander who you want for this theme deck, but how about Nekusar, the Mindrazer or Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge? Glen Elendra Archmage punishes for... Greed maybe? Even Gonti, Lord of Luxury sorta fits.Urabrask the Hidden, Sheoldred, Whispering One? These are just my suggestions :). I probably didn't hit it right on the head, but I feel like maybe some of these could help. Even if you wanted to change the commanders to the first two I listed.

N0L1M1TS on I Draw, You Mill. That Simple.

If you ever decide to weaponize card draw for damage, I strongly suggest Booby Trap. If you are familiar enough with your opponent's library, you can pairThis with your Jace, Memory Adept's ultimate to get 20 immediate draws for an attempt at that hit for 10 health.

If you splash in some black and red, you could also add in Nekusar, the Mindrazer which will allow you to fight on two fronts: mill and life, and it also pairs well with your Jace.
