You lose some value with no lands to bounce your Bog back, consider: Boros Garrison ,Orzhov Basilica, or Rakdos Carnarium

I guess Blighted Woodland can be replaced easily. Ash Barrens seems to be useful for basic land tutoring. My biggest concern now is about lands like Rakdos Carnarium and Vivid Meadow.They seem to have less potebtial than it looked like, however it might be just my first thought after playing it just twice. Both types are woeking good in other decks, so maybe it isn't bad idea to keep them until I'll get better lands. I should also be ablw to get the Commander's Sphere out of my different deck, where it is less useful :)

You're currently sitting at 103 cards with is not legal for Commander, I'd suggest to lose Bloodfell Caves and Rakdos Carnarium seeing as you have about 5 rocks already, it should be sufficient enough to run the deck on 35 lands. There are a few cards you may not need, such cards will only hold you a little back as you will definitely not use it unless it's down to the moment you want to use it.

From our previous discussions, you mentioned you wanted a Wizard tribal deck? It may help to add in a few Wizard tribal helping cards.1. Vanquisher's Banner2. Door of Destinies3. Adaptive Automaton

or Similar cards as above.

You should have between 36-40 lands; and I'd would let up on all the nonbasics, thanks to Blood Moon and Ruination. Specifically, remove Cinder Barrens, Evolving Wilds, Grand Coliseum, Orzhov Basilica, and Rakdos Carnarium. Shock lands, Fetch Lands, and Check Lands are acceptable.

I would run a Scroll Rack to compliment the Land Tax. Since you don't play more than one land per turn, this will help get creatures for Kaalia.

A Phyrexian Arena would also help increase the likelihood of creatures in hand.

Gut Shot, Stomping Ground, and Wooded Foothills. The last two are because they are red and green. You are running red and back so technically you just added two red mana. You could replace those two with Rakdos Carnarium, and Rakdos Signet. Those two things are not needed but if mana becomes a problem then try to add them two. But that would be my removal list.

Your deck is organized a bit confusingly, why do you have your entire mainboard in other? this makes the deck very hard to view and give recommendations for, you should probably move everything that's in "other" into your "mainboard" (mainboard is the stuff that is in your deck)

Also, have you considered the pauper dual lands? things such as Bloodfell Caves Rakdos Guildgate and Rakdos Carnarium will improve your chances of being able to cast your spells.

K1ngMars on Nekusar, the Mindrazer

Seems to be a really fun, low budget Nekusar, the Mindrazer deck.I'd suggest removing Izzet Boilerworks, Rakdos Carnarium and Rupture Spire, since those, in certain situations could screw you up, and instead add a Temple of Epiphany(to complete scrylands cycle), Sulfurous Springs(to complete painlands cycle). For a further upgrade there consider Mikokoro, Center of the Sea.

I like the instant speed Tainted Strike that could kill some unwilling opponent, great pesky move.On the other hand I'd probably remove Glistening Oil, since it really doesn't have a specific use in this deck.

Since you are going about this on a budget, I'd suggest really fun cars that combo with Nekusar like:

Soulquake(Mass bounce + your foes will probably discard most of their graveyard in terms of card amount... just be sure that this move doesn't allow them to come back);

Guiltfeeder(Since it has fear, if it swings on an opponent that can't block it, it could deal lethal damage. Absolutely reliable win condition);

Dragon Mage(Though it has to connect);

Day's Undoing(You need to play around the fact that it ends your turn);

Wheel of Fate(Nothing to say, simply great);

Wheel and Deal(Wheel of fortune just the opponents you choose);

Raiders' Wake(Great synergy);

hfvalenz on Kaalia of the Vast Prototype

Hey, I've never piloted a Kaalia deck, I have only played against her and from my experience, she gets the attention on the table most of the times and for good reason. People really know Kaalia. So I think that playing her has some key elements that could be improved.

Get her out fast fast fast.

In order to do that I'd replace these with basics and boost your speed since you're playing all those fetchlands.

Protecting her.

Kaalia has been around long time so people know how dangerous she can be.

  • Darksteel Plate could be useful, specially against wraths but it doesn't do much against bouncing or exiling, which is why Whispersilk Cloak could be a better alternative, and can help you avoid combat damage as well.
  • Mother of Runes will give her protection in response to whatever spot removal targetting her.
  • Grand Abolisher helps you avoid getting Kaalia countered.

If Kaalia has died several times, what now.

As you probably know, she will get focused and sometimes you just can't protect her enough. You need alternatives when this happens.

Other things I noticed

  • You lack card drawing. It's essential to have angels / demons / dragons on your hand on each of your attack phases. Phyrexian Arena and Necropotence. Watch out for Emrakuls on your meta with the latter. Some wheels could prove useful refilling your hand, though Wheel of Fortune is expensive, Winds of Change, Magus of the Wheel, Wheel of Fate and Dragon Mage are good alternatives.
  • On the same issue as above, Sire Of Insanity and Malfegor aren't helping you with that.
  • You have access to the best colors for removal. Ditch Soul Snare and Angelic Edict for the more versatile ones Vindicate, Anguished Unmaking or Utter End. Even Chaos Warp is a better alternative than the two I mentioned. Instant speed removal is crucial.
  • Same as above with sweepers. Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation are much better than Armageddon, because as it let's you a great advantage and all it also puts a huge target on your head, because you basically stop them from having fun at all. And in my experience, people tend to remember those who broke their lands, it's just the way it is. You don't need more hate, Kaalia will draw enough herself. On the borderline of this are Cataclysm and Rakdos the Defiler. The other Rakdos, Rakdos, Lord of Riots is a way better alternative. Imagine swinging with Kaalia, on her trigger putting RTR Rakdos, then on your second main you'll be able to cast a creature with it's cost reduced.
  • You have 4 instants now (more coming in the future I hope) and 3 creatures with activated abilities requiring mana. Price of Glory punish your for using those. I know it will punish counterspells as well, but there are some alternatives for that that won't draw the hate on your head, as stated above.
  • Lastly, I know I insisted a lot on avoid drawin unnecesary hate on you, but Ob Nixilis, Unshackled is another one to give some thought. People really love their ramping and tutoring. Though in this case I'm not saying you should remove him, just re-evaluate his inclusion.

I hope some of this suggestions help in any way.
