Good to see some other Yurlok decks out there. While I recognize we've taken slightly different directions, I just want to remind you that the mana burn effect can kill you too. You have a lot of infinite mana combos and not a lot of options for mana sinks or things to prevent your mana pools from draining.

Maybe consider Horizon Stone, Omnath, Locus of Mana, and/or Leyline Tyrant to help give you some protection from yourself. (Since I saw you reject Helix Pinnacle already) Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire could also help by providing game winning mana sinks as well.

Also consider adding some effects that prevent your opponents from casting spells on their off turns, that way when you use Yurlok to flood them with mana on your turn they have fewer options for getting rid of their mana. City of Solitude or Dosan the Falling Leaf.

Lastly, one final strategy my deck employs is a bit of hand punishment for players playing conservatively to avoid the mana burn. Cards like Dark Suspicions or Iron Maiden.

so, a couple of suggestion enchantments:

Bulwark & Dark Suspicions: deals damage to each opponent equal to the difference in cards in hand between you and them. pair with Painful Quandary for ultimate pain

Rain of Gore and Tainted Remedy are good substitutes for the "no gain life" effects. because watching Oloro decks kill themselves with their passive is hysterical

I actually made a deck pretty similar to this one. Her it is if you want to check it out: Mogis the hate god

what I found out through play testing is that creatures more or less suck for group slug strategies. There are plenty of really good creatures that fit this deck such as Zo-Zu the Punisher however I've found that if you relly too much on your creatures for incremental damage they are too susceptible to removal and board wipes.

In your case I believe you can safely get rid of any creature that produces mana. In most edh deck you only need about 10ish mana rocks and right now you have 11 as regular artifacts so I think your ramp will be fine.

Besides ramping creatures I believe that cutting these cards would also be advantageous:

With all those cards cut I'd then start putting in more group slug type enchantments. The reason I like these enchantments more is because unlike creatures, most board wipes dont hit them and most people dont have a ton of enchantment removal. There are tons of these group slug type cards so I'm not going to say which ones would be best for your deck because most of them would work. But I like these ones:

I would also just reconsider these cards, I haven't personally played them so I can't be certain of how strong they are, but they dont seem to quite fit the deck.

  • Cruel Reality It seems tempting but it only targets one opponent and is super expensive. I don't believe its worth its cost
  • Browbeat I would personally rather have guaranteed card draw, try Ancient Craving instead
  • Mana Geyser lots of mana, but what are you spending it on? if you had more X costing spells then it may be worth it but for now think of how bad of a top deck this would be with no cards in hand.

And of course I would strongly recommend running some dual lands to help smooth out your mana consistency. Here are some of the really budget ones:

You have a strong core here once again but I just feel that some of your card slots could be better spent. Hope all this helps

I agree with Hyperalgialysis. Drop some lands!

Forced Fruition is brutal for your opponents.

Iron Maiden is alright, just happened to come across it today so I thought I'd share. Skullcage is interesting as well, and Dark Suspicions has a similar affect. Sadly these happen at the upkeep which is before the draw step, but they could still do some damage. Mindcrank is a little different but could still fit in well. Gratuitous Violence is perfect for abusing Nekusar's ability.

You probably want Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots to protect Nekusar if he is to be a main part of your game plan.

Temple Bell.

Obviously Wheel of Fortune and Wheel of Fate could be great here, but they're not the most budget-friendly. :)

Nekusar is a very interesting commander, and there are many options as far as his decks go. Best of luck!

Seizan, Perverter of Truth is a really nice addition to Nekusar EDH, since he burns, and allows Nekusar to burn your opponents some more.

Bloodchief Ascension synergizes well with Mindcrank, so there's that.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I can tell, I can only see two wheels in this deck (Time Reversal and Whispering Madness). In my opinion, you cannot have a Nekusar EDH without a decent number of wheels. I would suggest Wheel of Fate, Reforge the Soul, Molten Psyche, Windfall, Winds of Change, and Magus of the Wheel.

You also can try out Price of Knowledge and Dark Suspicions. You also can consider Gaze of Adamaro, Sudden Impact, Runeflare Trap, and Stormbreath Dragon.

Thoughts on Burning Sands/Dark Suspicions? Burning Sands works well with Mogis, God of Slaughter and boardwipes, while Dark Suspicions is an anti-control card.

alright, so I did some more digging - I've been kicking around a similar deck idea for a while. here's some of the stuff you might be interested in:

Pain for everyone:

Citadel of Pain, Copper Tablet, Power Surge (read the errata for this one, it makes more sense, Shadows of the Past, Pyrohemia, Pestilence, Dark Suspicions (or Bulwark, depending. kinda mutually exclusive), Rivalry, Skullcage, Wheel of Torture, Iron Maiden and Circle of Affliction

No creatures for You!

Death Pits of Rath (which couples well with Pyrohemia and Pestilence from earlier), along with Circle of Flame, Heat Stroke, Magmatic Core, Mudslide, Wave of Terror, War's Toll, Storage Matrix, and Noetic Scales.

Punishment and protection

Pia's Revolution, War's Toll, Bitter Feud (kinda a furnace of wrath - but only for those two against each other), Defense Grid.

probably some stuff in here you considered already, just figured I'd sift through this stuff and see if anything was to your liking
