goblinguiderevealpls on Nekuzar's Wheel Empire

1 week ago

I forgot to mention, between low block potential and very high cmc, all 3 bolas cards are too slow and only really get one activation for soo much mana

But what ive noticed as i put money into the deck is it does best when played like storm, casting rocks and rituals and a pain spell and then chaining wheels for spike damage, the cumulative upkeep stuff is rather slow and really draws hate from opponents before you can kill them, and you are forcefeeding draw but you dont necessarily want them to use the cards you let them draw,

Price of Knowledge is ok, but in order to achieve the speed for storm, its really hard on the mama base, the only card above 6 cmc i run in mine is Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, and i never cast them they're only as a more useful Library of Leng

On top of being able to chain wheels after sticking a 1-4 cmc pain enchantment like Liliana's Caress Underworld Dreams or a discard/draw/combo engine 4-6 cmc like Dream Halls, Waste Not Rhystic Study, playing dimir colors means you have access to the best tutors for wheels and graveyard recursion, ive found that filling my graveyard by discarding wheels as a massive secondary hand and then either resetting the mill with the eldrazi titan while milling opponents out often removes the need for Library of Leng, but its a good card to learn the deck in the sense it teaches you what you want to keep or discard during wheels, plus if you have 50 cards in graveyard casting a Yawgmoth's Will or Mizzix's Mastery usually wins me the game with either 300-500 burst damage or decking opponents

Theres plenty of budget ways to recast wheels and other important spells from the graveyard you usually can fill up relatively fast

Magus of the Will

Past in Flames

Mizzix's Mastery

Archeomancer

Izzet Chronarch

Pull from the Deep

Call to Mind

Mystic Retrieval

Dralnu, Lich Lord

Non budget versions would be

Yawgmoth's Will

Snapcaster Mage

Kess, Dissident Mage

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip (-2 flip is another snapcaster)

Tutors really help you with getting the enchantments, protection or wheels you need to gain the lead, ill start with budget

Remand storm spells

The aim of a storm deck is to combo out as quickly and efficiently as possible at any cost, just cramming a bunch of spells with storm into a grixis deck doesnt make it a storm deck, if you arent winning when a spell with storm resolves, you aren't playing the archetype correctly, and this list has very few draw engines and is far too slow to be able to build a respectable storm deck

The other problem with storm is for storm to be good enough to win games reliably, its nearly budgetless, you'd need Dark Confidant Snapcaster MageJace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip Lion's Eye Diamond Imperial SealForce of Will Pact of Negation Mana DrainMox OpalMox DiamondMana CryptAncient TombGrim Monolith Mana VaultGamble Personal TutorEntombDemonic Tutor and other non budget cards to make the deck have any chance of presence before you get focused down by the table, especially because people already know what to expect from the nearly identical and widely infamous Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourgewas

I love grixis wizards and own a budgetless nekusar competitive deck , its a bit different because its wheel focused but maybe itll give you some ideas on the grixis staples, some of which you share :) hope it helps! even though its not storm, I listed some storm pieces I dont see included, although some arent budget

Wow.

This is a really solid deck for it's price. Heck even with the price doubled it would still be a really solid deck for the price. Luckily I bought the pre con deck for Oloro so im going to see if i can get enough of the staples for this deck together and use it.

Suggestions for the deck are all going to be tutors because honestly i dont know what actual cards could make this deck better. Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor if you want to stick to your cheap theme, Cruel Tutor if you have one lying around, Idyllic Tutor, Mystical Tutor,Personal Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor all allow you to search for Enduring Ideal. which with Enduring Ideal you win the game so if you add all of these you now have 8 copies of Enduring Ideal that say "win the game at the beginning of your next upkeep."

Mystical Tutor and Personal Tutor can help search for Approach of the Second Sun to cast it twice in 3 turns.

Smokethulhu Yeah, that's sort of what happens when comparing mono-colored decks with the same general.

xSKINCOLLECTORx I tried to make the list not only as competitive as my budget would allow, but also with the least amount of dead cards throughout the deck. Personal Tutor doesn't really have anything that's worth tutoring. Capsize is not a practical card to run outside of an infinite mana combo. Tolaria West seems like a cool land; however, searching for 0 drops at sorcery speed, not to mention trying to keep the Island count relevant for High Tide. Reality Shift seems like a cool card; however, I am aiming for the most efficient answers for mana efficiency. The only deterrant for Glen Elendra Archmage is the cmc, as I am trying to keep the overall cmc of the list low (as is with most competitive EDH lists). Despite this, I do thank you for your suggestions!
