Reforge the Soul Discussion
20 hours ago
Roilmage's Trick - Not a very efficient spell, even with the draw. Giving creatures -2/0 for a turn at 4 mana can be better.
Pendulum of Patterns - The 3 life isn't amazing, but if you're playing blue the 5 mana to draw one card is just bad. Implement of Examination at 4 mana to draw 2 cards is also not good. You still have cards like Windfall and Reforge the Soul you can add. Even a simple Divination is 2 cards for only 3 mana.

You should add a lot more wheel effects to this deck. Dark Deal, Molten Psyche, Reforge the Soul, Whispering Madness, Windfall, and Winds of Change are incredibly powerful, and deal massive amounts of damage to everyone in the game. Further, they disrupt players' hands, making their tutors/carefully calculated draws useless. Add Hive Mind to the mix, and suddenly there are myriad wheels in play, destroying your opponents' life totals.
Teferi's Puzzle Box nets a considerable amount of damage at the start of each players' turn.
The big problem with wheel effects is discarding your own hand. Library of Leng fixes that problem, allowing you to discard dead cards, while preserving in your hand the cards you want to keep (discard to top of library, draw them immediately).
Curiosity nets you a substantial number of additional cards.
I think Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is better for this deck than Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius. You are already generating considerable card draw, so its ability is both easier to utilize and provides an additional damage outlet.
Sigil of Sleep is delightfully mean. Every time they draw a card, you bounce one of their creatures.
If you really, really, really hate your friends, enchant Nekusar with Phyresis. Played alongside a wheel effect, you can effectively kill all opponents instantly.
I would also recommend cutting Spiteful Visions and any cards that deal damage to yourself. In my experience, Nekusar works best when everyone is drawing massive numbers of cards, including yourself. Self-burn is incredibly dangerous in this situation.

So, this deck looks wild. The comparative lack of draw and ramp tells me this deck is meant to hit hard and fast. My guess is that in a perfect world youre looking for this scenario around turn 4/5:
Saskia is out, naming opponent #2. You swing for lethal infect on opponent #1 and youve just eliminated half the table. So, whats the plan for opponent #3? At this point youre likely top decking (or close to it), right? Would it be worth my while to throw in some wheel effects or a Reforge the Soul type of card to reload and stand a better shot at resetting to wipe out my last opponent, or would adding too many cards like that lessen my likelihood at an aggressive opening?

Overall, I like the deck. Blood Baron of Vizkopa is one card you can take out. It seems a bit situational and in EDH it's unlikely that it will have the buff for long, if at all. Fate Forgotten is just a worse Forsake the Worldly, so that's an easy replacement. One problem I see in most first-time EDH lists is that people think "Oh, it's EDH so I can just shovel high manacost cards in the deck like Iv'e never heard of a curve!" You, thankfully, did not make that mistake. One thing I would add is more card draw. You could try Land Tax and Scroll Rack, or Wheel of Fortune but that's not very budget. Ambition's Cost and Ancient Craving are budget alternatives that work, and so are EDH staples Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections. Magus of the Wheel and Reforge the Soul are budget options for the wheel. To fit these in, try taking out Kindred Boon. Six mana to make one thing indestructible is not so good.

For a first attempt, the list is actually pretty solid. A few recommendations though:
cut the bounce lands (Orzhov Basilica, Rakdos Carnarium, Boros Garrison). Unless you're a lands based deck, it's not worth running these. On the topic of lands, you could comfortably go down to 37 (or maybe 36) given your curve. It's actually fairly stable.
You need more card advantage. This is the most notieable lacking that the deck has. Black has the best tutors in sthe game so leverage that. Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambition, Night's Whisper, Phyrexian Arena - these will all do work. And red gives you cards like Reforge the Soul which let you barf out your hand and then draw a new clutch. Mentor of the Meek is also amazing here.

Hey there Daedalus! I decided to increase my budget slightly, from $250 to $290. However, as a result, the overall cuts I had to make were very minimal! Luckily, I was able to find some good deals on ebay and tcgplayer haha. Anyway, here is how my list currently stands when compared to yours:
I've also cut some of the non-basic lands you were running in favor of more basics (mostly for budget reasons + Ruination synergy). I'd really like to hear your thoughts on these changes and make any adjustments as necessary based on your response. I am considering swapping Coldsteel Heart for, say, Mind Stone or Worn Powerstone, but I thought Coldsteel seemed better for the fixing. Dowsing Dagger seems pretty sweet, especially when I can combo it with MLD. It would be an epic play to destroy all lands, then transform the dagger afterwards. I'm just curious as to whether I should include a Mind Stone or Worn Powerstone (or other rock) in its place.
Thank you so much for your time reading this! My decklist is below in case you would prefer to see it in that layout. :)
Oh, and I appreciate the warning about the dangers of running MLD. However, my playgroup is very understanding and open to all strategies, so I know they won't be salty. Also, one of my friends plays a Kess Extra Turns deck, and the other plays a Baral deck filled to the brim with counterspells... so as far as I'm concerned, the MLD is justified to cleanse them of their sin :)
Overall, I am super excited that I was able to build what seems to be a pretty close version of your deck on a sub-$300 budget. I can't wait to purify my next EDH game! :) Thanks again for your help, I appreciate it so much.
