Psychosis Crawler Discussion

MindAblaze on This deck takes brains

multimedia I see what you’re saying, I just don’t think that is the direction I want to go. Honestly this deck’s mill plan probably hinges too much on Psychic Corrosion for me to only have the one tutor for it, and an inconsistent one at that. But I’m ok with that. My playgroup is tiring of my infinite combos and other consistent win conditions, so this is mostly for fun. That being said I have been thinking about Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and/or Laboratory Maniac, because in testing I’ve been able to draw ridiculous numbers of cards. Psychosis Crawler could fit too, but I already play Nekusar so I’m trying to not double up on my strategies that much, that and the more non-zombies I run, the fewer cards I draw with Varina.

So, I don't see any of the normal Nekusar cards here, and if you don't mind, could you explain why? Haha. Dictate of Kruphix, Font of Mythos, Temple Bell, Howling Mine, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Spiteful Visions, even Anvil of Bogardan, or Forced Fruition.

Doubling up on his damage dealing effect you have some options as well...Kederekt Parasite, Underworld Dreams, Fate Unraveler, Psychosis Crawler, and Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted.

Two of these can also be coupled with the infect sub-theme. Following suit, Phyresis, Grafted Exoskeleton, and Corrupted Conscience are all valid options.

You may also consider running a few board wipes at least. Vandalblast is quite good. Cyclonic Rift is amazing if you have one, they are a little pricey. Toxic Deluge, Damnation, even things such as Crux of Fate or Decree of Pain would be better than having no way to deal with a massive board state.

Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Whispersilk Cloak are all excellent options for protecting Nekusar or other key pieces of your board as well. Just make sure you give him Shroud after you equip or enchant him if you're wanting to do so.

Sorry for the paragraph...this went a little longer than I wanted, but I really love Nekusar and while my deck got stolen about 2 years ago...I really am considering rebuilding him, he is an absolute blast to pilot.

Pramikon, Sky Rampart can really control the flow of combat in your favor and give you extra time to set up to do your thing.

Approach of the Second Sun is a viable alternate win strategy. Zedruu could conceivably just draw into the second cast the next turn if you've passed off enough permanents to opponents. A Mystical Tutor and the like could make this more consistent but that suggestion isn't as budget.

Psychosis Crawler could help get opponents into range for Illusions or finish off opponents on its own if protected.

Hey just wanted to say this deck looks awsome

Surprised neither Laboratory Maniac nor Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is in your deck

It’s a alternative to the zndrsplt and Efreet win

Not to mention you could say the same for

Niv-Mizzet, Parun,Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind And Psychosis Crawler

And not a win-con but The Locust God nice syngry with zndrsplt

There are quite a few ways, such as bouncing a Prime Speaker Zegana a bunch while Psychosis Crawler or Laboratory Maniac is in play. My favorite way Ive won (back when I had Cyclonic Rift in my Roon of the Hidden Realm deck is as follows.

2 opponents left, one with almost no board state due to being a spellslinger deck and the other a newer player using a BR deck

  1. Have an opponent play Phage the Untouchable

  2. Gain control of Phage using Illusory Gains, then attacking with Phage at the no board state spellslinger

  3. Bounce Phage back to its owners using Roon.
