Sculpting Steel Discussion
1 week ago
The cheap draw cards were mostly meant as a way to help smooth out the deck's early game consistency, which was an issue I had with the initial versions of my artifact deck. Thirst for Knowledge and Chart a Course also double as a way to dump large artifacts into the graveyard early so that they could be reanimated.
If you are keeping in Mycosynth Lattice, I think it would be worth finding a spot for Vandalblast. It's one of the best EDH cards in red, and since it can't hit your own artifacts it can combo with the Lattice to destroy all of your opponent's permanents and pretty much ensure your win. Unless your group has house rules against land destruction, of course. I don't see a move like that as being much different from an infinite combo, but I know there are people who would object on principle.

I like the arcane adaptation and myr turbine idea though you may want to add Planar Bridge since it does the same effect for 8 mana.
I think I would run Sydri, Galvanic Genius as my commander for this and a bunch of untap effects. If you get your combo out with sydri and a Voltaic Construct you can turn myr turbine into a creature and do this a few times in a turn.
Admittedly I'm being a bit goofy since we are now talking sydri + arcane adaptation + Myr turbine + myr galvanizer + sculpting steel + a mana myr... That'd be magical x-mas land for sure XD
Maybe just an Unwinding Clock so you can do it once every turn instead.
Although copies of myr galvanizer can lead into other silly things too. Like infinite mana if you have 2 or three mana myr or an infinite Lodestone Myr or infinite Myr Propagator... You are digging through your library for the things you want so it could be possible to pull some of this together.

gflshade great question!
It kinda depends on the long term goals, so investing $40 in a good Boros mana base may be what you want, that way you can use the cards for other Boros/multicolored decks.
Besides mana base though, if I only had $40 to spend on this deck, I'd start with Recruiter of the Guard, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, Enlightened Tutor, Sculpting Steel, and Steelshaper's Gift. All of these cards are great and most importantly can be used in almost any deck with these colors. Don't get something like Sneak Attack though because that's a splurge item :)
The deck is nice because the gimmick theme keeps the price down. Ball Lightning creatures are all 50 cents because they're pretty bad anywhere else haha
Most of the price comes from all the value cards like Sun Titan, Solemn Simulacrum, Well of Lost Dreams, and Feldon of the Third Path. That's nice because they're pretty solid cards and again, fit into many decks.
Hope some of this helps!

also i forgot to mention
in my primer i talk about how wheels enable opponents not just due to mass card draw but the aforementioned filling of graveyards, since graveyard interaction is such a huge threat in EDH like this thread has discussed, cards like Bojuka Bog and Rakdos Charm are an absolute must to curb said graveyard threats
theres plenty of other options such as Leyline of the Void but i find the above 2 to be the easiest to cast, and rakdos charm comes with creature hate and artifact removal to boot, and they really help you get value from Timetwister effects when you shuffle your whole deck and they have no graveyard to shuffle away
lastly, Memory Jar can be extremely abused in nekusar in that you can clone it with Sculpting Steel, Phyrexian Metamorph etc to exile multiple hands of 7 from your opponents deck, and you can discard what you dont want exiled to mind over matter or dream halls to get around exiling your own spells

Exclusion Ritual seems way too specific for EDH, I wouldn't recommend it. Plus that mana cost is bonkers. In fact, all those enchantment (Nevermore, Oblivion Ring) are probably not ideal for EDH. You'd be better off replacing them with specific removal similar to Path to Exile, for example Anguished Unmaking.
Also, since you have Sharum, you would benefit from Sculpting Steel and Phyrexian Metamorph if you want to play combos. These, in combination with Altar of the Brood or Bitter Ordeal, will result in a mill infinite combo, if that's something you want to use.
You could also consider replacing Akroma's Vengeance with Hour of Revelation as the effects are similar, the costs are the samebut there's a chance you might only have to pay 3 for Hour as opposed to Akroma's.
Lastly, if you want to get the most out of Sen Triplet's effects, you really need Chromatic Lantern or similar ways to cast mana that isn't in your colours. Looks like a fun deck overall though, I really love Sen Triplets.

hey there, i have a fully tuned nekusar deck with a primer that runs all the staples, check it out here
discard engines like Mind Over Matter and Dream Halls help you get value out of wheels and combo out. discard value like Waste Not and Liliana's Caress are also crucial. while a titan shuffling effect to stop from decking yourself with wheels like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
Crucible of Worlds really helps since you still get lands you wheel away or discard
lastly,ALL THE TUTORS, they help ypu fetch wheels and pain to win games and are staple in edh just like mana rocks
