Waste Not Discussion

Since you're running white... Kismet, Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience

Since you want to discard...Painful Quandary, Waste Not, Sire Of Insanity

This is very much a hate deck. Zurgo Helm Smasher could be a good commander here.

Clickbait, I feel betrayed. Not budget at all. Anyway, some suggestions: Waste Not and Extirpate.

Couple considerations:

The Rack works wonderfully with discard based decks, since you can pretty consistently keep your opponents under three cards.

Waste Not is a nifty card, providing you card advantage, mana, or a creature, depending on what is discarded. All good options. It also plays mindgames with your opponent--since several of your cards allow them to choose what they are going to discard, they will have to think carefully in an attempt to give you the least beneficial boon at that period in time.

Kandrel on Soul of Malfegor

Looks like a neat idea--and a neat way to use Malfegor. There's a little problem, though. Yes, you're going to be making your opponents discard a lot of cards, but except for two creatures (Mindslicer and Sire Of Insanity) they're just drawing those cards back again. Those wheel effects just aren't going to get their hands empty. That means the punishers you have for small hands like Shrieking Affliction just aren't going to pull their weight. Consider instead punishing both sides of your wheel effect cards. Punish the discard with Waste Not and Liliana's Caress, then punish the card draw with things like Underworld Dreams, Spiteful Visions and many other similar effects.

Gitrog decks are cool!

Have you tested with Creeping Renaissance on "Sorcery" + Splendid Reclamation? That might net you a lot of value.

Waste Not might also be a good inclusion here given your discard theme.

Happy brewing!

So here's a list of the cards that I got for the deck:

However, there's plenty of things I know I need, and some things I might consider (thanks to edhrec.com).Holy crap, that's a lot of cards. What I want to do right now is have Kess play the support role while I tutor up Nekusar to play. As soon as I can start nabbing the wheels for Nekusar's pain, Kess's ability will allow me to cast them back for more wheel-y fun times (for me, at least). That way, people won't realize that this is actually a Nekusar deck: he's hiding, ready to strike! But my biggest problem is discerning which of these 150+ cards I need to whittle down to about 65, and also figure out how many lands I need to play. I've got a little money to spend, and this list is about as far as I'll go cost-wise.
