Underworld Dreams Discussion
2 days ago
Saintaro, I currently run some Underworld Dreams irl haha. It's a little slower than I'd like it to be for this deck, also it's three black mana which makes it a dead card sometimes. I have another deck Draw to Death I Said!, that is strictly forcefeed damage which it works better for. As for Anvil of Bogardan, I would for sure run it, however it isn't modern legal. I appreciate the suggestions though!

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,
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.
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
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
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
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
Hope this helps

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
.. 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

K_Train, great suggestions! I really dig the Veinfire Borderpost. I'll probably take out the Geier Reach Sanitarium for those, and for sure add in some Reforge the Soul's as well! I have a couple Underworld Dreams in the deck I physically have. Feels like I never get to play them when I have three mana since there are other cards for the same CMC I'd generally cast instead. Thanks much!
