Reforge the Soul Discussion

Oh I knew full well what you meant with unpredictability used as a way to describe how the deck plays out - that's why I made note of decks using multiple strategies and how they fall victim to being less focused than decks with singular strategies.
As for making the most of a Nekusar deck, he was one of my first generals outside of Precon decks. And I tend to maintain the belief that a general and their deck ought to utilize their ability/strengths, otherwise you'd be just using the colours and have Nekusar as a mere shell.
That being said I've seen people incorporate 5c shells with Nekusar in the 99 as a hidden general. They're neat in their access to all colours. With Nekusar specifically, focus on his strengths. He's built primarily for Wheeling opponents. While wheeling doesn't equate to combat damage, Nekusar Infect is perhaps the most consistent and competitive way to win. gives you access to Molten Psyche, Reforge the Soul, Winds of Change, Fork and Wheel of Fortune; gives you Windfall, Timetwister Wheel and Deal, Twincast Jace, Memory Adept. gives you Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Waste Not, Chains of Mephistopheles, painful quandry and access to Tainted Strike, Glistening Oil and Phyresis. Hybrid colours in this Shard give you access to Whispering Madness, Notion Thief, Phyrexian Tyranny, etc.
Aggressively abusing what your general does, in my eyes, yields the best results of that general. Nekusar is designed to punish your opponents for drawing. A quick, and relatively cheap combo with Nekusar on board is Fork + Winds of Change + Tainted Strike; for you can kill an entire board with lethal infect.

Hi xSHAMUSx, Contagion Engine is respectable, the -1/-1 is nice for defense. The proliferate 2 is nice. The main reason I don't play it is the CMC6 and the Activate 4. If I have 10 mana at my disposal, I should already have enough Experience and have pulled a combo. CMC10 is just too slow and too steep a cost for me.
Izzet has a tough time pulling creatures, ie: Arjun, the Shifting Flame.
Some recommendations might be:
Blue Sun's Zenith, Brain Freeze, Stroke of Genius, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jushi Apprentice, Enter the Infinite + Laboratory Maniac, Show and Tell + Omniscience, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Ambassador Laquatus, Grindclock, Millstone, Mind's Eye, Beacon of Tomorrows, Windfall, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Jace, Memory Adept, Memory Erosion, Dreamborn Muse, Jace's Archivist, Altar of Dementia + Glen Elendra Archmage + Sage of Fables, Altar of the Brood, Keening Stone, Mesmeric Orb, Mindcrank, Increasing Confusion, Tunnel Vision + Jace, the Mind Sculptor (Using his +2).
Would have to put together a preliminary build. Would need 1) Some way to survive since you'll pull threat from at least one player 2) Some way to go fast, cheap mana rocks etc to push into the big creatures.
Sorry if I duplicated any there, a couple good combos in there.
I should warn you though, in 4 player commander, it may be tough to mill all 3 opponents, you could do it, but may not be consistent. I think has better mill/control because of the .

Chains of Mephistopheles is a not-so-budget card I run in my Nekusar deck.
I also would throw in more wheel effects like Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fate, Magus of the Wheel, Jace's Archivist, Dark Deal, Runehorn Hellkite, Reforge the Soul, Whirlpool Warrior, Chandra Ablaze, Wheel and Deal, Incendiary Command, etc.
Alongside Spiteful Visions, there's also Phyrexian Tyranny, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, Price of Knowledge, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Viseling (in multiplayer, Black Vise for two-way), Iron Maiden, and Fevered Visions.
Some more forced draw you can put in include, but is not limited to: Dictate of Kruphix, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, Forced Fruition (especially fun in Nekusar EDH), Kami of the Crescent Moon, Master of the Feast, Nin, the Pain Artist, Jace Beleren, Dack Fayden, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Well of Ideas, Font of Mythos, Howling Mine, Temple Bell, etc.
Well, I hope that this wall of text I just typed helped to some extent, and good luck with the deck.

sigh I wrote you a long, detailed comment, then my computer decided to delete it. Long story short, here was my suggestion:
Make sure all of your equipment and creatures will have an impact. I'd look to the equipment I'm using on my deck for some suggestions, but the most important ones you're missing are O-Naginata, Champion's Helm, and Inquisitor's Flail. Also, of the Swords of X and Y, I'd play exactly the opposite ones from the ones you have, lol.
Double strike and extra combat steps are helpful. Duelist's Heritage, Silverblade Paladin, Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder, Temur Battle Rage, Aggravated Assault (goes infinite with Sword of Feast and Famine).
Protection is vital. Mother of Runes is the best, but more hexproof is always good.
Hope this helps! :)

DarkEclipse18: No need to apologize! :)
There is no budget replacement for Mana Crypt (there's simply no other mana rock that comes down as fast), but Inspiring Statuary can give you as much or more ramp in the late game. Chrome Mox could also do work but personally I don't like it much.
The two swords really are important here...I'd say that Sword of Feast and Famine is a must, but you could replace Sword of Fire and Ice with either Rogue's Gloves or Mask of Memory to replicate the draw. Nothing else can give the handy protection as easily, though.
I hope this helps! Feel free to ask any other questions you may have, and let me know how the deck plays for you! :)

Probably needs to be more streamlined, in my experience Partner Commanders tend to not be very fast unless they are enabling some sort of fast combo, and you don't seem to have a lot of pieces needed to combo off fast.
Paradox Engine is insane with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, and it combos perfectly with Isochron Scepter (and a respectable package of instants), easy inclusions that also strenghten Akiri, Line-Slinger incidentally.
I'd run a lot more wheel effects, and there are some not too expensive in the likes of Windfall, Winds of Change, Molten Psyche, Reforge the Soul, also ways to make use of the cards you pitch, like Past in Flames or even Snapcaster Mage, Torrential Gearhulk, Jace, Telepath Unbound and such.
Even if you go infinite on mana, which you can with the cards you already run, I don't see exactly how you'd turn that into a win right away, so you might actually go infinite without being able to win the game on the spot. Also, you can make infinite colorless mana, but not convert it to any color, so even if you draw into your whole deck with Staff of Domination, you wouldn't be able to cast more than a few cards, Gemstone Array is a good addition that helps with that as well, and if you want to win by drawing your whole deck, maybe Laboratory Maniac as well, even though I'd prefer some kind of Fireball which is my weapon of choice.
Check out my deck for any additional insight if you want to. Kydele and Akiri are not the most competitive pair, but they are very underrated nontheless. Really fun duo to play, I just think you need to fine tune your list a bit more to be able to make the most of it consistently ;)

- For more artifact hate: By Force, Shattering Spree
- For Defense of the Heart - Forbidden Orchard
- For protection - Conqueror's Flail, Defense Grid
- Worldly Tutor this card is must have in my opinion
- If You will decide to use more wheels, then I would suggest Magus of the Wheel instead of Reforge the Soul

I don't mind a summon when it's from a respected and devoted player at all ;)
So a more aggresive approach:
- Regal Force : Do you really need this for this CMC in here?
- Shamanic Revelation : Not top par if you ask me
- Reforge the Soul : For miracle it's great. But for its normal cmc it's too costly.
- Decree of Annihilation : For it's cycling costs you do not 'cast' it. And when ruric is out, you can tiem this
- Arbor Elf : I would prefer more ramp
- Boreal Druid : likewise
These would be my first few ideas that spring to mind.
