@ derpytrollerZ

All of these cards that you mentioned works wonder for the type of deck Nekusar runs. Nekusar deals the damage therefore causing Curiosity to trigger, Nekusar decks doesn't swing with creatures, he himself deals the damage due to the way his ability is worded. Library of Leng is also to prevent the deck itself from decking out and selectively allowing you to keep which cards you want in a wheel effect.

@ Maizena I would say No Mercy or Kess, Dissident Mage can be your flex spot for Notion Thief . No Mercy is quite easy to remove nowadays and Kess is flexible as she can be good, but it really depends on what you have in your grave. Whereas Notion Thief with a resolve wheel can win you the game or give you an overwhelming advantage.

Verity Circle works with certain decks, I do like it a lot, but I don't have a pure control type deck anymore. It does bear a lot of consideration in a Circu deck and I like the idea a lot tbh. I forgot to include Dark Deal but that also works, it's mostly in conjunction with Notion Thief when I do wheel as it is definitely hard to come back with no hand, and your pretty much guaranteed to win in the next couple turns or have an overwhelming advantage. Whispering Madness is almost never used for the cipher, its just another wheel limited to the dimir colors.

To be completely honest, just swapping Notion Thief for a land should be fine. You have enough ramp and a low enough curve to do so. Some other cards that stick out are Curiosity due to the fact that I don't think you'll be swinging with creatures too much, and Helm of Obedience because the chance of whiffing or just not getting a good card. Library of Leng is another card you could potentially remove.

Hi, guys. I want to add Notion Thief to my list and need help cutting a card in order to make room for it.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Amazing causal deck. I'm finding it difficult to spot very many possible upgrades.

Consider cutting a few of the lower impact big creatures for some more two drop mana rocks, a board wipe, a draw spell, a tutor and a few lower CMC support creatures? I'm guessing since you don't have Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond and Chrome Mox already that those cards are out of your price range?

Cards to consider adding:

A Delta and a Strand would help the manabase a lot.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Mortuary Mire
  • Halimar Depths
  • Djinn of Wishes
  • Diluvian Primordial
  • Artisan of Kozilek
  • Sepulchral Primordial
  • Twilight Prophet
  • Enigma Sphinx
  • Magister Sphinx
  • Darksteel Ingot
  • Commander's Sphere
  • Time Reversal
  • Fabricate

Good luck with your deck.

Have you considered the Divergent Transformations line into Notion Thief and Whirlpool Warrior ? It would require minor modifications, but might fit here.

triproberts12 on Sin of Greed

It is a fun theme, for sure. Since you've put Ramos as the commander, an on-theme card you might want is Dragon's Hoard . Fixing and a cantrip as soon as you cast Ramos? Yes, please. Bonehoard and Kothophed, Soul Hoarder are both good and on-theme, too.

Aethersnatch and Kheru Spellsnatcher could be good, and you should have the mana sitting around to play them when the opportunity arises.

Thief of Sanity , Notion Thief , and Fortune Thief are all in Grixis.

Trash for Treasure and Treasure Nabber could be good if you incorporate an artifact theme, and if you want to go deeper on the graveyard, Treasure Cruise goes well with Trash For Treasure and Bonehoard if you want to fill the graveyard.

Faithless Looting is always good, and Looter il-Kor is a pet card of mine. Merfolk Looter is okay, as well. Smuggler's Copter might be stretching the theme, but Thada Adel, Acquisitor is both flavorful and fits the theme and an artifact subtheme.

It's not a great mana rock, but Gold Myr helps you splash white, and the flavor is spot-on, same for Silver Myr . Secrets of the Golden City is an underrated commander card, and you shouldn't have much trouble turning on the city's blessing. Again, if you put in some graveyard shennanigans and looting, Tasigur, the Golden Fang is as greedy as they come. Debtors' Knell goes well with graveyards and control, too.

Villainous Wealth just oozes flavor.

Price of Fame is flavorful, and it takes out commanders like a champ. Price of Glory can wreck certain decks, and you'll be mostly unaffected from your current list.

Increasing Ambition is pretty good, especially if you're going for a combo finish.

KayneMarco on Nicol Bolas says Rack Effects Matter

3 weeks ago

generalraam052: The Sphinx isn’t a bad idea. Will have to try working that in. Niv Mizzet ain’t gonna work for me mainly because I only want damage coming from Rack effects plus the occasional attack or two. That’s why I didn’t run Nekusar. I had considered him for awhile. And as far as the library goes I won’t be doing much discarding myself. On a side note I’m also strongly considering finding room for Notion Thief . Looking at your suggestions it popped into my head.
