Nightscape Familiar Discussion

ThallionDarkshine on Nekudady

Master of the Feast and Viseling are kind of low impact cards in my opinion. Viseling just deals damage too slowly, and Master of the Feast is basically just an undercosted beater. Giving your opponents cards, even if it will ping them for some damage, isn't enough to justify running a card that does nothing else. In addition, I don't really agree with running Wheel of Fate without ways to cheat it out. If you have to wait around for 4 turns before it does anything, your opponents can plan heavily around it, killing all your damaging stuff going into the turn it will resolve.

I would consider playing some of the more powerful damaging enchantments and spells. Megrim, while often worse than Liliana's Caress, definitely should find a spot in the mainboard for its ability to deal 2 damage at a time and kill off planeswalkers. Phyrexian Tyranny hits people for 2 for each draw, or just greatly taxes their mana. Spiteful Visions is symmetrical card draw, and pings everyone for 1 on each draw.

I would also add some more cheap mana rocks. Nekusar is a very fast and consistent deck because it can run lots of ramp, dump your hand and then refill with a wheel. Obelisk of Grixis is a pretty mediocre mana rock. There are lots of better ones on 3, and even some more great rocks at 2. Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Dominance, and Talisman of Indulgence are great 2-cmc rocks. Nightscape Familiar can stall against big beaters and costs down a good chunk of your spells.

Next, there are some great wheel effects that you're not currently running. Magus of the Wheel is a tad bit slow, but still a strong card. Memory Jar and its creature counterpart Magus of the Jar are also insanely powerful. They're definitely some of the best wheels in my opinion, letting you refill your hand for a turn and making your opponents discard a ton.

Here are some suggestions: Talent of the Telepath lets you use the opponents removal (like if you need exile or enchantment removal), generate value, or it can be an emergency cultivate or something against a green player. Also its cheap. Memory Plunder is in a similar vein. Better when you need a specific spell, but it doesn't mill potential combo pieces, etc. Vandalblast is a great one sided artifact removal, and kess can cast it twice. Nightscape Familiar is a great cost reducer I don't see. Dack Fayden should be in your deck. At the minimun it's often ramp (can steal their mana rocks) or looting for what you need. At most it steals their combos. Toxic Deluge is one of the best board wipes in commander.Sire of Stagnation is great draw that makes opponents hesitant to play lands and can exile key cards. Sphinx of the Final Word this might only perform well in a certain meta, but worth considering. Imprisoned in the Moon You can't repeat this but its worth it. Shut down their commanders. Reliquary Tower Pretty self explanatory in edhDesolate Lighthouse is a great looting tool when you want itDemonic Consultation instant wins with Laboratory Maniac.

These next two are probably too expensive right now, but I am mentioning them because they are being reprinted in Iconic Masters which comes out in November so they're price will go down. Consecrated Sphinx great drawKokusho, the Evening Star usually kills all opponents with kicked Rite of Replication

GS10 on The Calm Before the Storm

I purposely run a low creature count. I like Nightscape Familiar but with Baral and Goblin Electromancer I think there's enough cost reduction. The reason I didn't chose the Familiar over Electromancer was simply that I didn't own one.

It's an easy upgrade, but not a very urgent one so while I'll definitely trade it somewhen, it's not something I'm ordering asap exclusively ;)

Thank you for the suggestion!

I would highly suggest:

Yawgmoth's WillWindfallWheel of FortuneDuressGushImpulsePyroblastChrome MoxLotus PetalMana CryptMana VaultMox DiamondNecropotenceMystic RemoraFact or Fiction

My first cuts would be:

Talrand, Sky Summoner You already have far better win-cons.Liliana of the Veil Great card, but unnecessary for combo.Phyrexian Arena Too slow. This deck isn't in it for the long haul.Lotus Bloom I love this in Yidris, but not where there's no way to cheat it.Rakdos Charm Would only play this in a control version of the commander/deck.Dreadbore Same as above.Nightscape Familiar Never have been too impressed by these effects in storm.Serum Visions One of my least favorite draw spells in the format.Grixis Panorama I would cut 6 lands down to 30. You'll find yourself flooded with this many.

Beyond this, you have to play test the deck a ton to get a feel for it. I hope you enjoy!
