If you would like some suggestions,Drop:

Transguild Promenade (not a great mana filter)

painted bluffs (not great mana filter)

River of tears (some comp decks run this but personally i dont like it)

Metallurgic Summonings

Sunbird's Invocation

Duskmantle Seer (you have some high CMC cards)

Nucklavee (cmc too expensive)

Wizard Replica (use actual counterspells rather than creature ones)

Dissipate (use a different counterspell: Arcane Denial)

Ravenous Trap (Run bojuka bog instead)

Disdainful Stroke (not a great counterspell: trade out for undermine)

Horn of Greed (this cards actually alright to keep if you cant find a replacement)

Neurok Stealthsuit (actually mentioning this card because its great! glad to see someone use it)

Sphere of the Suns (theres better cheaper manarocks)

Traveler's Amulet (not great ramp)

Wayfarer's Bauble ()

Mystic Retrieval

Deny Existence (not great counterspell: trade out for Dream Fracture?)

Negate (get Counterspell instead)

God-Pharaoh's Gift (Too high of a cmc for what it does, when your deck gets further developed you will end up with less creatures)

Mind Stone (trade out for sol ring)

Dimir Charm (i like izzet charm better, not a super whole lot of 2 mana cards you want to destroy in edh)

Izzet Chronarch

You have a lot of instant and sorcery retrieval, Honestly with Nekusar in my opinion you should actually replace those cards with more copys (For example Windfall and Collective Defiance are basically copys since they do the same thing) = Consistency, its nice to grab whatever you want from the graveyard but you dont always have that option.Heres some cheap cards to fit in maybe? i play paper and im thinking paper prices, everything here should be under $3

Graven Cairns: Fantastic mana filter, too bad the rest of the cycles are incredibly cheap, this is the only super cheap one

Geier Reach Sanitarium

Extract from Darkness


Breathstealer's Crypt: This card is insane for what it is, it hits you too but its still worth it.

Whispering Madness

Geth's Grimoire


Library of Leng


Mystic Remora

Crosis's Charm

Dark Deal


Kederekt Parasite

Lim-Dul's Vault

Diabolic Vision




Phyresis and Tainted Strike, it feels good to kill players with infect after wheeling multiple times in one turn

Fevered Visions

Jace's Archivist


Collective Defiance

Temple Bell Great card, try to tap it at the end of their turns, or use when you need to topdeck a counterspell

Hi, you told me your problem is thar you "would constantly loose with only one or two points of damage left to win".I think we can handle it.

You do want to kill with the infect damage, right?

1 - Try Grafted Exoskeleton and Glistening Oil, you can't have only Phyresis.

2 - Don't cast a wheel if you are not going to kill everybody. You have 13 cards with an "wheel" effect, so it is easy to "chain" wheels. Just make sure you have enough mana (7+) and let the world spin. You can chain by:

  • Having Library of Leng in the field and 2 wheels in your hand. Cast the first one and send the second one to the top of the Library. You'll draw it and cast for the victory.

  • Having an wheel that do not need to be casted from your hand after you've alredy casted the first one (i.e. Jace's Archivist, Memory Jar or Magus of the Wheel)

  • Having a creature able to attack, an enemy without blockers and Whispering Madness (Cast WM, cipher it in your attacker and it's GG).

  • Not being unlucky. 13% of your deck is a wheel. If you cast an wheel, there is a chance you can draw another and finish the game.

3 - Add more Tutors to find the Infect enables.

Hope it helps you :)

Isn't there an enchantment that gives infect as well? I think you would need 8 ways to give infect to you guys, otherwise you could be stranded without enough ways to deal infect or life damage. Phyresis. I thought about doing something like this, though it might be good to try to work the math so you don't end up with them at 9 poison counters or something. Heres a look at an infect brew I made if you want

Homelessguy thanks so much however I did have Grafted Exoskeleton in the deck however I I felt like it was pretty mana hungry and swapped it out for Tainted Strike. I have thought about Phyresis however the fact that its a enchantment leaves me limited to when I cast it and if I am trying to win with nekusar. It makes him a big target. Thanks again

Hey K1ngMars, thanks for the suggestions! Funny enough I remembered I had this deck and cycled it before I started polishing it up. The first thing I did was clean up the land base. Thanks for assuring me I made the right choices haha.

Glistening Oil, Tainted Strike, and Phyresis all give Nekusar (or any draw-pingers) infect to close out the game with one swift wheel. I keep all three just for consistency.

I love the idea of Soulquake and Guiltfeeder because my playgroup uses a lot of graveyard synergies. Soulquake might be a bit too mana expensive though and all cards would eventually go back to the GY anyways.

I had Wheel of Fate in the deck but hated how I couldn't control when it was casted.

I'm so mad I never found out about Wheel and Deal and Day's Undoing, they fit this deck perfectly!

Raiders' Wake also seems great but I just have no idea what to cut for it, or any of the others to be frank. I'll work on that though. Thanks again for the help!

My Nekusar deck is built as sort of a group hug, draw-all-the-cards deck; and for that reason, it only has three ways to win. Bloodchief Ascension and Mindcrank loops in a win, Phyresis or Grafted Exoskeleton is usually how things play out, and Forced Fruition got me there once (by decking, not damage) -but it often helps the other players find answers.

I'm all about the draw. Phyrexian Arena, Rhystic Study, Spiteful Visions, Scroll Rack, and Teferi's Puzzle Box.

I would switch Sturmgeist for Nin, the Pain Artist or Runehorn Hellkite.

I don't want to make too many suggestions; because by then, you'd just be running my deck. I'll leave it below if you care to view, upvote, or comment. Good Luck.

Charmbreaker Devils can be used for recursion.

Spiteful Visions and Phyrexian Tyranny are both cards that I would put in Nekusar EDH decks. Yes, it does do damage to you, but with Nekusar on the field, along with other damage engines like Parasite, you will outlive your enemies.

Glacial Chasm is a card that stopped my Nekusar deck in its tracks when I played against another Nekusar deck. Maybe you can try it out.

Nin, the Pain Artist serves as a creature removal outlet and a forcefeed engine.

I've seen several Nekusar decks that run Helm of the Ghastlord, or, if they want to be real nasty, Phyresis and/or Grafted Exoskeleton.
