Wistful Thinking is really good with Waste Not :)

Dark Ritual isn't Modern legal. If you're playing casual than don't worry about it. Be sure to add your deck to a Casual Hub for more exposure.

If you're ok with playing Blue, look at Jace's Archivist , Windfall , Memory Jar , Magus of the Jar and Forced Fruition , especially for Multiplayer.

Good use of Collective Defiance to burn off that excess from Waste Not .

Tarlfgar on Waste Your Combo Not

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.

After all, my intent is not to lock my opponent out of cards, but to make them discard a lot (and thus get creatures, cards and mana from Waste Not). Gnat Miser is a no-go for the same reason.

Sign in Blood might be a good addition here, it's very versatile. Seizan, Perverter of Truth would be even better, but it's a very costly creature- by the fifth turn an FNM game is usually over.

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!

multimedia Thanks for all the great suggestions! Among the lands, I plan on using Command Tower, Tainted Peak, Tainted Isle, and Crumbling Necropolis because I can trade for them with my play group. As for the nonland cards, I'm still in the process of buying the current cards, but Fellwar Stone, Waste Not, and Dark Deal sound super solid esp. for the deck. What would you cut to include these three cards?

Again, thanks so much for the suggestions!

Hey, to expand on what others have commented on about the manabase here's some budget playable lands to consider adding. All my suggestions will be $4 or less (most are $2 or less).

Other cards for the discard theme to consider adding:

Budget staples in Grixis colors to consider adding:

I offer more help. If you like some of these suggestions I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

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
