Library of Leng is great in Nekusar for avoiding your own discards. Also no max hand size is nice. Perplex is nice as a counterspell if you need it, but its real value is in tutoring for 3 cmc cards. I think Eye of the Storm is really funny in Nekusar if you can get multiple wheel effects on it. Whirlpool Warrior is a wheel effect on a stick. Ebony Owl Netsuke is a good pain card.

Mana base? Just mana rocks isn't going to let you get away with 36 islands and a swamp. Other than that you might want to consider: Well of Ideas Phyrexian Tyranny Whirlpool Warrior Prosperity

Ok friend here it goes...

Your deck as it sits right now seems a little confused.

Your commander's main goal is to draw cards, make insect tokens, and win the game with a swarm of bugs.

Your deck on the other hand, seems to want to play a lot of creatures, beat people up, and draw some cards along the way. Your Commander doesn't like that.(I think it's fun though, most of my edh decks goals are to punch people with a lot of creatures).

So, what I think your deck needs, is a bit of an over haul, or a change of commander. Now, I'm not sure what you budget is, the size of you collection is, how competitive you want to make this, or what you like to play, but I'm going to give a few suggestions of cards to push you in a direction for the Locust God.

So you'll want cards like Impact Tremors, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, and Purphoros, God of the Forge as ways to kill your opponent with out attacking with your tokens. Then cards like Favorable Winds and Gravitational Shift to win with attacking.

Now you're going to want some card draw, stuff like Reforge the Soul, Day's Undoing, Skullclamp, Bident of Thassa(there are a ton others).

Maybe creatures like Whirlpool Warrior, Chasm Skulker, and Whirlpool Rider.

Also maybe cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance,Goblin Electromancer, Spellbook, Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower.

Sorry if this wasn't what you were looking for. The Locus God is a sweet commander period, but he can be unreal if you pull the best out of him.

Hope I helped out, let me know either way. Happy Brewing!!

Hey there,

Nekusar is my favorite commander and ive been tuning him since printing, I noticed a fellow nekusar player needs some help

My list certainly isnt budget bit its very fast and competitive, maybe itll give you some ideas! Its a primer in progress

Competitive multiplayer nekusar primer if you want to see what a Competitive primer looks like :)

Some budget options i would recommend

Rakdos Charm

Breathstealer's Crypt

Phyrexian Tyranny

Arcane Denial

Liliana's Caress

Memory Jar

Winds of Change

Incendiary Command

Day's Undoing

Blasphemous Act

Deadly Tempest

Wheel of Fate

Toxic Deluge

Mind Over Matter and Dream Halls are wheel engines that really power up nekusar

Budget creatures

Kederekt Parasite

Magus of the Jar

Magus of the Will (budget Yawgmoth's Will

Dualcaster Mage (budget Snapcaster Mage

Magus of the Wheel

Whirlpool Warrior

Noggle Ransacker

Seizan, Perverter of Truth

Sire Of Insanity

Tezzeret the Seeker can cheat in Teferi's Puzzle Box or ramp

Mindcrank + bloodchief ascension = infinite mill/damage/life

Hope that helps :) big ups to the lich king

Izu_Korasu on The Locus God + Lifegain?

not really .. i mean you can try to force it with cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Past in Flames and cheap blue cantrips ... but even with rituals, blue and or just mana quickly becomes an issue for storming in non-mizzex/Yidris decks

Arjun, the Shifting Flame decks have the advantage of Mindmoiling everytime they cast a spell and can use Psychosis Crawler, Sphinx's Tutelage and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind to ping opponents lifetotals/decks multiple times a spell even if the storm fizzles.

that being said, The Locust God shines at drawing cards, and going wide with an army of hasty fliers ...Kindred Discovery on insect is a good start and has exponential growth with Alhammarret's Archive (draw 2 cards, make 2 locust, draw 4 cards, make 4 locust .. etc, just becareful as the loop is mantatory .. so Laboratory Maniac or a way to kill people before you lose is important before you start)

and cards mentioned in the above sections combined with Chasm Skulker, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Frantic Search, Whirlpool Warrior, Brainstorm, Rhystic Study, Whirlpool Rider and other cheap "wheels" may help you get value even if your storm doesnt quite get there.

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
