Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion
2 days ago
Chains of Mephistopheles is a not-so-budget card I run in my Nekusar deck.
I also would throw in more wheel effects like Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Magus of the Wheel, Jace's Archivist, Dark Deal, Runehorn Hellkite, Reforge the Soul, Whirlpool Warrior, Chandra Ablaze, Wheel and Deal, Incendiary Command, etc.
Alongside Spiteful Visions, there's also Phyrexian Tyranny, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, Price of Knowledge, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Viseling (in multiplayer, Black Vise for two-way), Iron Maiden, and Fevered Visions.
Some more forced draw you can put in include, but is not limited to: Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Forced Fruition (especially fun in Nekusar EDH), Kami of the Crescent Moon, Master of the Feast, Nin, the Pain Artist, Jace Beleren, Dack Fayden, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Well of Ideas, Font of Mythos, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, etc.
Well, I hope that this wall of text I just typed helped to some extent, and good luck with the deck.

neither of them are too expensive either

Some powerful but not overly expensive cards are Sylvan Advocate, Tireless Tracker, Unlicensed Disintegration, Aethersphere Harvester, Fatal Push, Greenbelt Rampager, Noxious Gearhulk, Harnessed Lightning, Nissa, Vital Force, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Chandra, Flamecaller, and many, many more.
Some more expensive but extremely powerful cards include Archangel Avacyn Flip, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, and Torrential Gearhulk as people have already said. In addition, Verdurous Gearhulk and Chandra, Torch of Defiance are good options as well.

This is a decent set, not to crazy really. Some cards are being pushed to certain formats in mind(some modern, pauper, a speckle of legacy) and looks to be a really fun limited experience. I see a grindfest like Khans/Fate kind of speed. I just wish they made some kind of planeswalker removal at instant speed. I don't need to explain the difference between Hero's Downfall and Ruinous Path in term of context.
We NEED a Hero's Downfall at this stage of rotation, what does WOTC not understand about this?
We have with after this release (not including the intro deck planeswalkers)
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
Gideon of the Trials
Nissa, Voice of Zendikar
Nissa, Vital Force
Nissa, Steward of Elements
Tamiyo, Field Researcher
Arlinn Kord Flip
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets
Nahiri, the Harbinger
Sorin, Grim Nemesis
Liliana, the Last Hope
liliana, death's majesty
Tezzeret the Schemer
Chandra, Torch of Defiance
Ob Nixilis Reignited
Kiora, Master of the Depths
20 Hard-to-interact-with, usually C.A. Engines, Sweepers or can build incremental board presence that if unchecked can win the game flat out(excepting with Trials he just doesn't make you lose.) What's sad is that there is no reason to play any of the nice gods because you have a planeswalker who for the most part can do their job better at that slot anyway with minimal risk and max reward.

So far my sideboard plan against both mentioned decks went as followed:
Although I might cut Hero's Downfall over Collective Brutality depening on how many Duress targets they play
Collective Brutality might be even more cut worthy but in combination with Extirpate they can give some extra value. Extirpate is also strong in combination with Ghost Quarter which I play together in several decks against Tron. I board out 1 Godless Shrine in games where I don't need white mana and try to control the game out. Since G2/G3 tend to last longer than G1 I think 24 Lands are enough especially when boarding out some Brutalities.
Any better suggestions?

UBQRLQL Eldrazi was a difficult matchup since the beginning because their threats are both big and disruptive. Matter Reshaper is card advantage for them, while Thought-Knot Seer, Reality Smasher and Endbringer/Drowner of Hope are all must answer threats. This is one of the prime reasons I went up to three Damnation in the sideboard. And of course, Eldrazi Displacer makes trying to defend almost impossible.
In this matchup, I usually take out all my Pack Rat. Eldrazi Displacer, Engineered Explosives and All Is Dust all make Pack Rat quite bad and slow. You become the control deck against Drazi, killing things with Geth's Verdict, drawing extra cards with Phyrexian Arena, and finishing the game with planeswalkers/Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet/Desecration Demon. Taking out Pack Rat also helps with our own Damnation plan. Against Bant, I'd keep in all the Fatal Push; against colourless Tron, I might cut one or two.
Demon, by the way, is quite good against them since it is bigger than all their guys and will usually eat multiple creatures/kill them straight up. Kalitas exiling their creatures and making a zombie army is also one way for us to match their board state. Ob Nixilis Reignited is quite a star in this matchup; card advantage + removal again and again is just so good against them.
If you feel as though you do not have enough disruption against them, I could see bringing in one or two Extirpate, even, to cut off the threat you're most scared of at the time, or that you know they have in hand from having previously cast a disruption spell.
Shadow of Doubt in response to Expedition Map or a fetchland or with Ghost Quarter is very very good here. I agree Ghost Quarter is not the best in this matchup, but with Shadow, it becomes Strip Mine, and that's quite good.

Ah no worries man. I dont run 4 since I'm an idiot an sold of my 4th because I thought I had 5..
Yeah I've seen her. She looks good, but she def needs more creatures in a deck to work. She also fights with Ob Nixilis Reignited and other 5 drops such as Archangel Avacyn Flip. If I were to use her I would add creatures with good value like Noxious Gearhulk or Linvala, the Preserver. Also pretty excited to see the new black god!

I understand you said you weren't trying to build around him as the main win con, but he's too much fun not to imo. Here's my Nekusar deck: Mindrazer No Chaser if you want to take a look.
Otherwise I might consider a different Grixis commander as there are a lot of great ones. The newest one I've done is a partner edh deck with Vial Smasher the Fierce and Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist that focuses on chaos, but it's also an awesome duo for control (might take mine that direction someday). My chaos deck is here: Random Acts of Randomness
