Seizan, Perverter of Truth Discussion

Mice deck. I'd swap some of your mana rocks for signets instead. You got 3 signets available, so remove Mana Geode, Prismatic Lens and Mind Stone (you won't need the draw ability in this deck). No Sol Ring?
Winds of Change is another effective wheel at a very low cost that, has a plus, doesn't let your opponents get back the cards they already discarded. No drawback there. :)

Psychosis Crawler and Seizan, Perverter of Truth do not get doubled by Obosh, the Prey Piercer, as they cause loss of life instead of dealing damage. Same for Baneful Omen, Angrath, the Flame-Chained, and Ob Nixilis Reignited.

I had an Appetite for the Unnatural for Yawgmoth once I learned he as a character existed a few years back; then found EDH, and discovered that the format is extremely fun. Been here ever since. Once he dropped in Modern Horizons, I have never dropped cash on a piece of cardboard in my entire life. Foil Yawg now watches me while I play. My only hope is that I make him happy. lol.
Next favorite was Rishkar, Peema Renegade. I loved +1/+1 counters so much, I built a deck purely around the idea. Actually pretty quick and spooky for a mono green deck with no real strat except: "let me poor all my D6's on this creature. That's how big it is." Makes me giggle every time that a Gyre Sage can tap for far more than any Marwyn, the Nurturer at the table!

You should cut Day's Undoing--because it ends the turn, Nekusar's damage triggers will not occur.
I would also recommend cutting Dictate of Kruphix, Font of Mythos, Howling Mine, Seizan, Perverter of Truth, and Kami of the Crescent Moon. These incidental, small draw effects are more likely to help your opponents by giving them the answers they need than they are to win you the game given how little "damage" they deal (with most of them providing no damage without outside support).
Forced Fruition is particularly bad--in my experience, Forced Fruition generally means an opponent casts a spell, draws 7 cards, finds their removal/board wipe, casts removal/board wipe, draws another 7 cards and then happily combos off with Forced Fruition no longer being in the picture. Basically this reads "Any player may pay 14 life; if they do, they find all their combo pieces and win the game."
Underworld Breach allows you to get double use out of your wheel effects.
Spiteful Visions damages you, but, since you'll be dealing extra damage just to opponents from your other cards, your opponents will still be drained a bit faster than you will.
Hope some of this helps!

There's a promo of Brain Maggot that is absolutely disgusting and perverse, I think it'd be pretty cool.
In terms of extra cards, I'd suggest some legendary creatures from the Kamigawa blocks, not only is their art exactly what you're looking for, but some have the same theme as your deck. Here's the ones I would suggest:
- Seizan, Perverter of Truth
- Iname, Death Aspect
- Patron of the Nezumi
- Kyoki, Sanity's Eclipse
- Kuro, Pitlord
- Yukora, the Prisoner
Some extra weird cards that I've found in my journey's:
- Greel, Mind Raker
- Ashling, the Extinguisher
- Geth, Lord of the Vault
- Macabre Waltz
- Treacherous Urge
- Mindstab Thrull
- Blood Funnel
- Kheru Bloodsucker
Overall, really cool deck theme! I'd put in an Underworld Dreams because it's pretty creepy and goes great with your theme +1

Thank you a lot for the appreciation Epicurus :)
These are some useful suggestion that i thought about but i found a little bit of problems adding them to my list (at least without some testing) for some reasons:
Seizan, Perverter of Truth is pretty nice, a lot of card draw but is a "lose life" effect which is not doubled by Obosh/Quest for the pure flame/Angrath Marauders, as you can see Forsaken Wastes is the only "lose life" of the deck included because abolishes life gain and punish the one who removes it. There is the problem of giving a lot of value to the opponent (it's a double Phyrexian Arena). requires some testing to see if the damage pays up what we give to our opponents. Is still a pretty good call, maybe Hypotesizzle can be a nice cut for him if someone wants to test. Goes direct to maybeboard
Sleeper Agent i love that card but there are some downsides, if you drop her turn 1 and the opponent that gains control of her knows the deck you are playing will instantly swing at you a couple of times to have an advantage on the "damage spread clock" you are setting, if you drop her late she can be used as a blocker and dies. If someone have sacrifice outlets is even value for them, it's pretty situational and not so reliable, and that hurts me because i wanted to play this card.
Master of the Feast another card i like A LOT, but has no "built in damage" like Nekusar/Fevered Visions or even Seizan. This means is really valuable when you have effects like Underworld Dreams but having him in hand without these is risky, because is free value for 3 opponents. Best used in Nekusar EHD cause you have this effect staple in the command zone.
Lightning Bolt ...that could be a nice card...but we are not lucky with obosh restriction -> Isochron Scepter. A single lightning bolt doesn't impact the game like a Slagstorm (even if it's basically 3 lightning bolt on a single card if used on opponents). The only way to make Lightning bolt in EDH is to make it an engine.
Thank you for the suggestion ! I'm still open for improvements
