Sire Of Insanity Discussion

boothis on Neheb, Minotaur Ring Leader

goblinguiderevealpls I actually just took out Sire Of Insanity and Malfegor to bring down my curve a bit. Everlasting Torment would be a solid add I think as well, but my meta plays a lot of token decks which is the bane of my existence to say the least. Didgeridoo is SO hard to get a hold of! But I finally have one on the way.

I brewed a similar list that started as a minotaur tribal goodstuff and ended with an discard/enchantment subtheme also including some good demons and dragons, your list is actually VERY Similar to mine D:

Id recommend Anthem of Rakdos, Widespread Panic, Sire Of Insanity Shrieking Affliction Malfegor Key to the City

Also, ive REALLY enjoyed Everlasting Torment in my list, it deals with pesky lifegain decks, and due to neheb and friends having first strike, they take wither damage in combat far less that your opponents will, and after first strike wither damage attacking or blocking usually minotaurs come out alive :)

Sire Of Insanity is the main win condition of the deck, because no one will have a hand, and Kess, Dissident Mage kind of allows the graveyard to be our hand.

Docent of Perfection  Flip/Talrand, Sky Summoner can create tons of evasive tokens.

Guttersnipe will slowly wittle opponents down, and Exsanguinate late game can be cast two turns in a row with Kess, Dissident Mage to bring people down.

Charmbreaker Devils can also become huge out of nowhere, and a perfectly timed Disrupt Decorum can flip the game in my favor.

marc_buzzelli maybe an Emrakul? Since you can't get it back with Reya Dawnbringer. Another option would be Sire Of Insanity because some decks empty their hand fast enough that it doesn't do much.

Hey @screamer51.

I love nekusar and everything about him, I started building him as soon as he was spoiled, and now have an insanely tuned and budgetless competitive multiplayer edh deck

Anyways, what would I recommend for budget casual constructed?

As you can see by my deck, i learned that nekusar loves Wheel of Fortune and is more of a spellslinger draw theme than zombie tribal.

That being said, if you want to build around the lich king, creatures should be your last priority,

If i were to make a casual nekusar constructed that is effective, i would run things like Reforge the Soul, Liliana's Caress, Time Reversal

In a 20 life format, nekusar only needs 3 "draw 7" or mass loot spells to kill an opponent, and thankfully a majority of these are cheap.

Reforge the Soul

Day's Undoing

Waste Not

Megrim

Fevered Visions

Wheel of Fate

Burning Inquiry

Windfall

Whispering Madness

Molten Psyche

Dark Deal

Cerebral Vortex

Winds of Change

Second to wheels and forced draw, nekusar is kind of high cmc for a creature, so things like Nightscape Familiar can help you cast more spells faster, speaking of more spells, grixis has access to a beautiful array of rituals that you can chain into nekusar much earlier than turn 5 and also allow you to cast more wheels after refreshing your hand

The budget rituals include

High Tide

Bubbling Muck

Dark Ritual

Seething Song

Desperate Ritual

Pyretic Ritual

Cabal Ritual

Cards like Geth's Grimoire and Jace's Archivist can easily win you the game if left unchecked, and there are other forms of draw damage in Phyrexian Tyranny Fevered Visions Underworld Dreams Spiteful Visions

As far as cheap counterspells, Arcane Denial is BONKERS cuz it can deal draw damage with its draw, Sign in Blood is a cheap card draw that you can use to draw OR kill opponents by stacking it with nekusar.

Cards that save you from wheels decking you out

Memory

Library of Leng

Laboratory Maniac

Other than "wheel" and countermagic, you can also mill opponents with Mindcrank or Sphinx's Tutelage, reanimate wheeled creatures with stuff like Stitch Together, or run discard like Despise or Duress, and Cephalid Coliseum is INSANE as a cheap 1-of in edh, id be scared to see what 3 or 4 could do.

Lastly, a spell decks worst weakmess is CREATURES

now im going to assume you're not going to be slinging Damnation around, but theres tons of budget alternatives in the likely case that opponents will have more creatures than you

Deadly Tempest

Decree of Pain

Extinguish All Hope

And if you're still itching to run creatures even though i would not advise many, here are a few options thar nekusar has liked in the past

Nightscape Familiar

Kederekt Parasite

Sire Of Insanity

Goblin Electromancer

Jace's Archivist

Magus of the Wheel

Magus of the Jar

Fate Unraveler

Master of the Feast

Noggle Ransacker

Whirlpool Warrior

Laboratory Maniac

Hope this helps

goblinguiderevealpls on Deckusar, the Handrazer

Those are the priciest in the deck, though, most of the wheels and non foil cards were budget friendly.. yea i was restricted by budget for the first 3 years, but i built it more Fork / Dark Ritual + wheels, i find the upkeep draws like Howling Mine give your opponents too much card advantage/answers without Notion Thief and is just pure card advantage to opponents without nekusar or Underworld Dreams effects.

Some budget options

Cephalid Coliseum

Fevered Visions

Memory Jar

Toxic Deluge

High Tide

Notion Thief

Bubbling Muck

Seething Song

Vandalblast

Cyclonic Rift

Blasphemous Act

Oppression

Magus of the Wheel

Words of Waste

Magus of the Will

Deadly Tempest

Breathstealer's Crypt

Magus of the Jar

Trinket Mage

Winds of Change

Memory

Dualcaster Mage

Riptide Laboratory

Past in Flames

Mizzix's Mastery

Phyrexian Arena

Psychosis Crawler

Day's Undoing

Time Reversal

Winds of Change

Whispering Madness

Phyrexian Tyranny

Underworld Dreams

Fate Unraveler

Increasing Vengeance

Reverberate

Twincast

Cabal Ritual

Decree of Pain

Sire Of Insanity

Dream Halls

Archfiend of Ifnir

Runehorn Hellkite

Anvil of Bogardan

.. i could go on, i wasn't speaking purely of the budget cards i was just pointing out ive put 6 years and a lot of money into building mine so there are some budget ideas in that list

Cool deck. I'd consider running a Sire Of Insanity - it destroys a lot of decks if they can't remove it right away.

Also, some lands could obviously be improved (some of your manabase is probably due to budget, but still...) - I think every land in the deck needs to tap for black, but I still think some specific lands are worth considering.

I especially think Crypt of Agadeem could be sick, but a lot of other lands could also be considered: Bojuka Bog - Tomb of Urami Ifnir Deadlands Hissing Quagmire and Shizo, Death's Storehouse are all worth mentioning
