Hmm, why not just make a Paradox Engine deck?

Just add some number of Otherworld Atlas es and some Temple Bell s and your good to go. I have a list if your interested.

@ griffstick , thank you for your suggestions! I think you might be right about the Library of Leng ... The only reason it is in the deck was because of Wild Research , to counteract its discard-effect. In combination with Temple Bell you had a 100% guarantee to get the card you tutored for. This was exspecially nescessary as I had Nexus of Fate as a wincondition in the deck and needed to tutor it up on every turn using the research/temple bell/library combination... As the Nexus isn't in the deck anymore, I think I can cut it from the list. It's sad though, as I kinda like this card :'(

Looking at the Sphere of Safety I kinda disagree with you. This might depend on my meta though, as nearly everyone is playing tokenbased strategies... Being the only person in blue I'm often being targeted by the more aggressive players. Even if the Sphere taxes my opponents only about 3-4 mana for every attacking creature, they are usually looking another way, where they can use their token-army at full advantage. The Sphere also seems to be the only way to protect my Venser, the Sojourner , who becomes very important in the lategame. Last but not least the Sphere goes very well with Enchanted Evening , making it nearly impossible to attack me at all if my opponent doesn't have infinite mana at hand. In short: I really do like the Sphere in the deck! :)

Still you helped me out a lot! Thank you for your time and your angagement :) I am one step further, now there's only one more to take!

Bloodchief Ascension and Temple Bell would be great ways to increase the power of this deck and allow it to win more easily. Even without those this is the kind of silly I can appreciate, being a Shadowborn Apostle player myself.

both of those cards are bad, smasher. you want to combo out with Waste Not so non-discard effects are far worse than Windfall effects since they are random and shuffle your library which usually has a card tutored on top and is therefore counterproductive.

like maiz said, any effect that gives your opponents free cards with no downside like howling mine are just terrible,especially without damage. Temple Bell is only good because it combos infinitely with Mind Over Matter otherwise its trash

the only wheels any nekusar deck should run is Timetwister and Wheel of Fortune effects. my nekusar primer is fully tuned and optimized and i dont even run Molten Psyche because its far too situational and dangerous to cast.

furthermore,telling someone to play cards with zero reasoning behind yout suggestion does nothing. anyone can easily go on EDHREC and see all the bad casual draw spells people run in their nek lists, but those are heavily casual lists and are more chaos than Waste Not storm

Howling Mine costs 1 less than Temple Bell. Play mine instead.

Guys, I'm not running Temple Bell anymore and need help finding a card to fill the gap. I've been thinking about Counterspell or the new Bedevil, but i'm open for other suggestions!
