Seizan, Perverter of Truth Discussion

blazestudios23, thanks for the suggestions! Card draw can be tricky when trying to balance the other themes of the decks. Have you tried adding something like Smothering Abomination ? Adding cards like Altar's Reap , Bankrupt in Blood , Costly Plunder , Live Fast , and Sign in Blood are all pretty swell. If you're feeling like being generous, Seizan, Perverter of Truth is great, since he spreads the love and the cards.
Mana is solved through the use of handy trinkets like Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar , and the signets. Maybe I'm just extremely lucky, but the number of games that I've been mana-screwed has been pretty low. Palinchron could be added in for kicks, if you're hurting for mana.
My hesitation with Black Market is that it takes a while for it to get up and running, and it usually gets removed before it can contribute anything remotely useful. I might add it to the sideboard, in case I'm playing another deck with a lot of creatures dying, but I don't think its inclusion would be merited by my creatures alone. Phyrexian Tower would be absolutely great if it weren't a once-a-turn kinda thing. After I tap it, either for one mana or two, it becomes a dead card until next turn.
Neheb, the Eternal makes it a little tricky to keep my opponents' life totals in check, which is necessary to make sure Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone ability triggers. Sure, the extra mana is nice, but keeping my opponents' life totals in check until I'm ready to end the game is easier done without Afflict. While Scourge of the Throne looks like it would be an awesome card, I would only consider it to be a win condition. Again, this ties into makuing sure my opponents' life totals aren't so low that I wouldn't be able to trigger Marchesa, the Black Rose 's Dethrone, which the deck is based around.
Thanks so much for your suggestions! You've definitely given me more options to consider!

what an awesome deck, its really impressive. I will try to build a budget version, of it. But I have small question for my own understanding. First, isn't Wheel and Deal banned in EDH? Does Viseling really works? For me it looks a bit slow. What are your experiences with this card? And what are your experiences with cards like Forced Fruition or Seizan, Perverter of Truth ? They looking really powerful but flow as well.
Thumbs up! Great Deck and I am really interested to hear about your experiences. Semsandberg

Darth_Savage I think Reforge the Soul would be an amazing addition here. I overlooked it because I only looked for cards with lower mana costs, I didn't even consider there can be a Miracle card that's suitable for my deck, thanks!
A very early version of this deck did feature cards like Whispers of Emrakul and Wrench Mind, but in the end these discards were not potent enough- Dark Deal or Reforge the Soul that you mentioned can cause a 7-card discard, and even Burning Inquiry is a 3-card discard for one mana.
Do you maybe have any card suggestions for surviving before the combo gets activated? I haven't played against any control-heavy deck with it yet, even in playtests, so I'm not really sure what pieces could help. Thanks for your input!

Reforge the Soul, would give you another Wheel of Fate effect.
This is just off the top of my head (to be fair I have a deck which plays in this space Grixis Owl-ing Mine) so there are probably more... Hope this inspires you, good luck brewing your deck.

maxon: any card that discourages an opponent from playing a certain way. Examples (as I probably described that in a not-great way) include Dread and No Mercy to discourage attacking me, Aura of Silence and Seal of Cleansing to discourage artifacts and enchantments, and Portcullis and Grave Peril to discourage creatures
I’d say most removal, counterspell, and fog effects can be used politically, especially if they’re repeatable. Cracking Spore Frog in Meren of Clan Nel Toth to save an opponent could have them owe you a debt, or pointing a removal spell at the Mind Over Matter or other combo piece can curry favor with every at the table (except the guy trying to combo off). This probably wasn’t exactly what you were looking for, but I think it’s worth mentioning.

Starke of Rath is on-theme, although removing stuff might lead to less choice overall

Gotta love a nice Nekusar deck!
You have Fate Unraveler in the Maybe, I would move that to the main without hesitation.
To make space I would take out anything relating to discard and life gain, they look stretched thin across the deck and seem to be diluting the synergy.
All suggestions are from my deck Drawing Your Last Breath, please feel free to look and comment!

Hi kopil999, thaks for the comment.
The Locust God synergizes really well with this deck, you could run it if you want. The only problem is that it's a 6 CMC that will not win the game in the spot or bring me close to it. I think it would be better to run a "wheel" based deck with the God as it commander than trying to fit him in a Nekusar's build. We don't have cards to support creatures in this build (like a Coat of Arms i.e.)
I used to run both Seizan, Perverter of Truth and Master of the Feast alongside with cards like Font of Mythos, Howling Mine and Kami of the Crescent Moon. When nobody knows your game strategy they are nice, but with time they will turn you in a target for the rest of the table. I reckon it's better to forcefeed your opponents with extra draws only when you're going to finish them
I've never thought about trying Kira, Great Glass-Spinner, but it is an excellent card to protect our commander. The only inssue is that we really aren't THIS dependent of having Nekusar in play. Sure, it is the general and we'll always be able cast it from the CZ, but creatures are much easier to remove than enchantments like Underworld Dreams and Liliana's Caress.
