goblinguiderevealpls Demonic tutor

I am a competitive modern GP/pptq player, trying for best in canada!

I also play a lot of edh, legacy and draft.

Im known to brew very powerful, rude decks, see the 10 on my profile if you're interested in winning games and losing friends :)

always happy to suggest good cards for your deck if you're willing to accept my opinion!

I often come off as rude. I never mean to be, I have autism and im not afraid to tell someone which cards they run are bad or that there are superior options.

I am extremely blunt and mildly opinionated which often makes me seem like an asshole, if I have offended you, than I am sorry

I promote the use of degenerate chaos decks, combo/control decks and the use of high synergy combos, and will gladly share them :)

I only play paper magic, so i dont care for online leagues

Favorite cards and formats

Goblin Guide: modern

Nekusar, the Mindrazer: cEDH multiplayer

Keranos, God of Storms: French edh

Favorite decks:

Nekusar forcefeed

Bought the jeleva deck on release, fell in love with nekusar after i built prossh and found his lack of opponent interaction boring, Currently fine tuning and investing in the expensive parts of the deck to make it as interactive yet competitive as possible with wheels and support spells.

Currently looking to write a primer based on my thousands of games playing him, but im not so good at explanations, help writing one is appreciated

Keranos french stax/land destruction

Yes, im THAT GUY. I also built a multiplayer variant :p

Lastly, i play goblins, red deck winsand affinity in a high end competitive modern tier 1 modern league in the GTA

Im always happy to suggest some good cards or help you thin out and tune your deck, or simply throw in my 2 cents! as long as you're willing to accept my help, im willing to give it!

its actually intended as waste not storm. i own a reservoir and i actually used to run helm/void combo ages ago but found it diluted my strategy and was boringly easy.. leyline is good on its own but helm has been a dead card otherwise, i also used to run the infinite combo with Mindcrank and Bloodchief Ascension but ascension was too slow.

reservoir is good and all, but wheel storm requires very low storm count to work and i only need 2-4 wheels for lethal, 4 reservoir triggers a turn is pretty low.. but thanks for the suggestions!

usually i dont cast any wheels or nekusar until im about to win, so the chance i feed opponents something like protean hulk os very minimal since i will be chaining wheels, meaning they would only be able to cast instants provided they have the mana on my turn. sometimes there is removal or counterspells that happen but thats exactly why i run my own counters and a bunch of 0-drops so i get more wheel value than opponents. i havent had much failure so far.

nekusar is only bad if played bad, a majority of the game is ramp and control, wheels and nekusar only happen when i can win, since using them as a loot or outside the combo obviously feeds cards. wheels can be dangerous yes but not when they have very limited priority in between wheels

i might go more stax route, Torpor Orb is banned in my playgroup but its a great hose i would run otherwise that has won tons of games, but the Waste Not and Chains of Mephistopheles strategies work quite well so far

DangoDaikazoku,

thats kind of what I've been trying to say, not intentionally flaming any criticism just trying to defend my work I've done.

nekusar is usually tier 2.5 and like i said nobody at my lgs wants to face it except for a thrasios/tymna player who gives me good practice.

it definitely works well as intended and in my playgroup its too OP, sadly i don't have a large cedh group to practice with.

i tried to make it as best as possible given the commander and i am happy with the results. thanks for the support and advice

i do understand that forcing draw has its backfires. trust me i have lost plenty of games to thrasios/tymna,my own prossh food chain, keranos and brago stax lists both destroy this deck often. every once in a while i can beat them but i am aware nekusar is hard pressed to compete in cedh. i actually got beyond bored with prossh since the gameplan is so linear and easy to get off so this is my "fun" edh deck i enjoy playing since its a challenge to win where i find most of my cedh decks boringly easy

if you read the comments archive this topic has been addressed several times and i know that competitive nekusar is not cedh, but that doesn't mean i cant optimize a commander

many commanders can be optimized without being a cedh commander

would you suggest i rebrand the deck? i dont mean to false advertise as its not cedh but the deck is fully competitively optimized as much as a deck such as this can be

November 12, 2018 6:54 a.m.

hence why its not tier 1. a howling mine wheel of fortune deck obviously can backfire but its chaotic. hence why you said "probably". ive had games where i lose turn 2 cuz of a bad rng wheel and games where i win turn 2. the deck is competitive for a forcefeed deck and it only sacrifices consistency in the form of rng

November 10, 2018 9:14 p.m.

i dont think you understand what i said lol. i dont care whats better or whats tier 1 or not, i like nekusar so i play him for fun. i just spent a lot of time and money making him be able to hold his own, but as a commander he is not the "best".

and the difference between nekusar and tatyova is that nekusar actually takes skill to play... i mean its mostly a dimir legacy list.. and its not "lol i play lands and draw and win" if you haven't attempted to pilot a dimir mill/wheel deck than your opinion has no meaning.

if you really dont think this deck is competitive when it has an 100% competitive list, has been tuned over 5 years based on play experience and a 7000$~ price range, then at least give an example or reason as to why its not,just because "you think" it isnt does not make it so.

anyways im not here to prove a point, if you don't like my deck just keep scrolling cuz i dont really care what people think unless they can back it up with factual evidence.

Soren841,

if you play cedh you know that nekusar is far from tier 1.

rather, this is my attempt at making my pet deck as competitive as possible. in my description i mention that he is strictly inferior to Kess, Dissident Mage or Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge.

i have won on turn 1 many times and turns 2-4 otherwise. it depends on rng and lock. i have won turn 1 with rng with a Winds of Change causing my opponents to start the game with no lands in hand and scoop

i have won turn 2 many times starting with various ramp spells and creating a game lock with Teferi's Puzzle Box + Chains of Mephistopheles and/or Notion Thief to nuke your hand and prevent anyone from drawing anything

also works with Necropotence + Anvil of Bogardan + Chains of Mephistopheles and/or nekusar to make draws impossible while using necropotence to get around the draw lock and win

nekusar isnt a cedh commander. this deck is a "competitive nekusar" deck but that doesnt quite make it a top tier deck. i simply love nekusar and wheels so i used money, research and play experience to make him as consistent and competitive as possible.

that being said i do run a lot of the same cards as tier 1 grixis storm cedh so i dont know where your claim comes from if you havent played the deck. but yes it will never be tier 1 cedh.

its worth noting that ive had the deck since 2013 and it was better back then, and also worth noting my entire LGS wont play against this deck since its too strong or unfun.. but it can win on turns 1-3 fairly consistently.

November 10, 2018 6:19 p.m.

looking at the list you already have most of that covered, so i think playtesting is in order!

well first off its kinda good and bad.

as far as serious edh is considered, boros is the worst colors due to lack of tutors and draw spells, however that doesnt make them bad it just makes them WORSE, mono- is only really bad in cedh,

as far as etali is concerned, he is a unique take on a mono red general and can be really fun. the problems i can see in etali is that he costs 6 and lacks haste, a turn 6 that the table has a turn to respond to is kinda bad.

however if you really like the deck you can try and MAKE it as good as possible. the best ways to do this is to have a lot of etali protection like equipment and you DEFINITELY want as much ramp as possible, from Seething Song to Coalition Relic to Thran Dynamo, youd need to get etali out much earlier than turn 6 to ensure you get triggers. its also worth noting that Relentless Assault effects double up his ability

the main problem is it has to compete with the other "good" mono red generals, such as Norin the Wary, Krenko, Mob Boss, Neheb, the Eternal all of which cost less mana and are fully dedicated to chaos and burn strategies, this would lean more towards a norin chaos type of decklist

Strionic Resonator copies his ability also

if you want zombie tribal i would suggest Thraximundar, Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, Varina, Lich Queen or Sidisi, Brood Tyrant, as nekusar is honestly the worst possible zombie commander creature wise. even Sedris, the Traitor King and Lord of Tresserhorn are far better zombie generals.. and the former of the 2 is much more suited to a reanimation creature base anyways..

November 3, 2018 8:46 p.m.

you need to cut at least 20 creatures. nekusar is THE Wheel of Fortune commander and is much more spellslinger than creature based. check out my cedh nekusar primer for some insight. i also have a budget version since my primer is budgetless

Said on Timetwister loops...

#12

personally its the only thing missing from my cedh nekusar primer list in paper form.. having an Underworld Dreams out in a timetwister loop is very satisfying lol

but theoretically its the only power 9 card legal in edh and is thus included in a vazt majority of blue decks who can afford to run it. im sure there are a few exceptions but I've seen a timetwister in most blue cedh lists that are fully optimal

if you want to build a deck around twister i would recommend a commander that benefits from the infinite draws like Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, The Locust God, Edric, Spymaster of Trest
