Phyrexian Arena Discussion
2 hours ago
Thanks for the suggestions! I've added all of those in, except for Phyrexian Arena.
Something just rubs me the wrong way about making myself lose life, even if I have it to spare.
Maybe if I end up having way too much problem with cards I can roll with it for that extra chance at card draw.

Alright, more thoughts:
1) I'm not sure you have enough token generators to use Minion of Leshrac safely. I use Minion in my LD deck, and I've got two planeswalkers that generate tokens, Krenko, Mob Boss, and Goblin Offensive. And I'm not sure that I have enough to use him safely.
2) Too much of your LD hits you as hard as it hits your opponents. This makes you overly reliant on Crucible of Worlds and mana rocks/mana dorks. And you have only one mana rock and two mana dorks to rely on.
4) No tutors?
5) Omen of Fire is an auto-include for Jund LD. Even if your game doesn't have both white and blue opponents, it will definitely have white or blue.

For some Doran-redundancy, I'd suggest adding Assault Formation. Skinshifter is a great creature to add in this deck. Bar the Door could be nice too for some sudden bonuses. Last but not least, Abzan Beastmaster and Phyrexian Arena could provide you with some card-draw.

G/W doesn't necessarily have to be secondary in an Abzan list. Play Selesnya and splash B for cool enchantments and constellation payoffs. I'd personally go with Abzan, because it gives you access to things like Daxos the Returned and Phyrexian Arena.

Ive been tuning a competitive nekusar deck since he was first printed, maybe itll give you some ideas.. i used to run most of these cards but they are long obselete to me, especially the Howling Mine effects, they are generally bad. Yes they add 1 damage a turn with nekusar, but they also provide your opponents with multiple Phyrexian Arena draws per turn, and in my years of experience that almost ALWAYS draws them into answers for nekusar and pain, removing the damage and getting free card draw.
Nekusar wins easiest by chaining Wheel of Fortune effects in a storm-like fashion, most "upkeep draw" effects are too slow and usually get you killed before you can kill your opponents, especially with the hate he draws.
Nekusar's abilities support a spellslinger deck, this makes him VERY weak to creatures, so a lack of things like Damnation, Evacuation, Toxic Deluge and Blasphemous Act should be auto-include, as well as stuff like Rakdos Charm and/or Deadly Tempest, you are severely lacking in countermagic and protection as well :/ and your creature base is remarkably high for a wizard deck,
Hopefully my pet deck list gives you some ideas, ive been working on it for 5 years

Like your deck :)
It doesn't look like your deck has a lot of card draw. Tribal decks tend to run out of gas in the hand without card draw. Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, and Night's Whisper are all cheap card draw spells.
I would also add a bit more ramp like the 3 signets (eg. Rakdos Signet) to speed up the deck and have more colour fixing.
In terms of cutting, you could cut a few of the vampires you find are the weakest. You've got 33 and you probably only need 25ish. Also, I personally would cut Exquisite Blood. People hate losing to its infinite combo with Sanguine Bond.
Hope this helps!
