Hi, took a look at the deck and I think I see a few swaps:

Rupture Spire->Vivid Crag

Obelisk of Grixis->Commander's Sphere


Some cards to consider adding:

+Fate Unraveler Another, probably easier to cast, Underworld Dreams effect along with a 3/4.

+Geier Reach Sanitarium Another Mikokoro, Center of the Sea, in fact it's better because you also have discard triggers.

+Bojuka Bog Likely someone in your meta has a graveyard based deck, and this is a very low cost way to greatly damage them. Especially since you will be fueling them with all your discard. For that matter, adding Nihil Spellbomb or Relic of Progenitus could be wise too.

+Liliana's Caress You've got Megrim, might as well use this too.


And a few things that might not be pulling their weight here:

-Otherworld Atlas This seems just too slow. Charging it once makes a Temple Bell that etb tapped and costs 4. Charging twice is a really slow Font of Mythos. Charging three times is...three turns of nothing. If there were a heavy proliferation theme, then maybe.

-Laboratory Maniac Are you decking yourself before opponents are dying? If you've gone through 99 cards, or even 80, the opponents should be at -40 life or less. They'll also be damaging each other too. In the unlikely event someone maintains positive life, you'll probably deck them before yourself anyway if they played any of their own card draw. If you still worry about it, Time Reversal and Day's Undoing can replace two of your other wheel effects.

-Omniscience This just isn't the deck for this card. Yes all your Howling Mines can refill you each turn, but pretty much nothing in your deck is card advantage, so you can't drop this and storm through your library or anything like that. At the point you hit 10 mana you can pretty much cast 3 spells + play a land each turn anyway, so Omniscience only has value after you have ten mana, and if you draw more than 1+(mana available/averageCMC) cards per turn. At every other time (so way too often) it's dead.

-Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker Sure he's powerful in a generic way, but he doesn't synergize with the deck, and I think he's next on the chopping block because of his cost.

-Magus of the Jar Having summoning sickness and costing five makes this questionable to me.

-Leyline of Anticipation Another generically powerful card, but you know what else is generically powerful? Signets.

nottobay Thanks for the suggestions. I had thought about Gemstone Array, but hadn't put it in because I thought it was a bit expensive (6 to get going). I ended up getting Pentad Prism(cheaper and comes with counters) and Druids' Repository(cheaper and has a free trigger) instead. I've never heard of Otherworld Atlas before and it seems interesting (at least a fun interaction). I'll give it a try. I already have Mage-Ring Network in this deck. The storage lands have worked really well with Atraxa (I'm getting two more: Calciform Pools and Saltcrusted Steppe).

There are so many fun cards you could add here that work with Nekusar: Ob Nixilis Reignited, Forced Fruition, Otherworld Atlas, etc.

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

Nice to see a mill list!

If you are ok with Temple Bell affects, there is Font of Mythos and Otherworld Atlas. Forced Fruition is also amazing for doing this.

Prosperity and Skyscribing are also spell versions.

Spellbook and Library of Leng are extra versions of Graceful Adept too.

Inundate and Curse of the Swine are also more removal options.

A know a friend with a three colour Nekusar draw deck that just might give you some inspiration.

Happy deck milling!

You probably know these but my little brother's Nekusar deck runs smoothly Temple Bell Howling Mine Chandra Ablaze (her second ability makes 'em draw lotta cards. Skyscribing Spiteful Visions Fevered Visions Black Vise Otherworld Atlas Dictate of Kruphix Dream Fracture Prosperity are just some of the basic cards. If do properly, they'll often have to discard a lotta cards so cards like AEtherize and Crush of Tentacles work really well. Other cards that just go well with this deck include Nightscape Familiar Chandra, the Firebrand Torchling Prognostic Sphinx Cruel Ultimatum Blasphemous Act Dissipation Field

Nekusars bread and butter is enchantments. Someone else already mentioned curiosity and ophidian eye, but Helm of the Ghastlord and Elder Mastery are even more devastating. Seeing as you are running mind over matter, both Temple Bell and Otherworld Atlas combo off on it. Lastly... Day's Undoing has an effect which ends the turn... which also exiles nekusars damage triggers off of the stack.

Happy deckbuilding!
