What about something like Soulscour to destroy everything except the Howling Mine and Ebony Owl Netsuke?

Or Celestial Kirin + Ugin's Conjurant to destroy all land? Maybe Fall of the Thran?

Fevered Visions does the work of both Howling Mine and Ebony Owl Netsuke efficiently, so that could be copies 5-8 of Ebony Owl. You could pair it with tap cards in blue like Exhaustion and burn effects in red like Fateful Showdown, Gaze of Adamaro, and Runeflare Trap.

There's also good ol' Black Vise.

There's not much hope for Ebony Owl Netsuke these days. Sure, there are a few new tricks, like Runeflare Trap, but decks these days are so efficient at emptying their hand that it's going to difficult to clog it up in the traditional way with Eye of Nowhere and Boomerang.

You probably could use some effects like Eidolon of Rhetoric Curse of Exhaustion or Rule of Law to prevent opponents from getting more than two cards out of their hand each turn (one land and one spell). Maybe, something like Possibility Storm or Knowledge Pool to lock the game while Ebony Owl Netsuke goes to work.

So, my current deck in standard is a mill control deck.

For that one:

Teferi's Dismissal

Instant

Return target creature you don't control to its owner's hand.

Draw a card.


For my modern deck, which recurs elementals:

Death's Whisper

Creature - Elemental

When Death's Whisper enters the battlefield, destroy target creature with converted mana cost 2 or less.

Menace, Haste

At the beginning of your endstep, sacrifice Death's Whisper

4/1


For my favorite commander deck, mt Kambal deck, I've talked about ad nauseum...

Kaya's home plane of Tolvada has a maddening sky, so here's my riff on that

Observatory of Tolvada

Land

Observatory of Tolvada enter the battlefield tapped.

: Add .

, : Each player puts the cards in their hand on the bottom of their library in any order, then draws cards equal to the then draws cards equal to the greatest number of cards a player put on the bottom of their library this way. ________-

I think Teferi's Puzzle Box represents going mad, also Whispering Madness. Viseling, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Misers' Cage, Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted, Underworld Dreams, Iron Maiden, etc. would love this effect. ______--

Super fun, repeat the challenge!

I really like the design, although I think it's a tad weak, although Shadowborn Apostle is lowkey broken. Not sure, maybe it'd be fair. Difficult to gauge these effects.

Here's the Red one:

Flamekin

Creature - Elemental

A deck can have any number of cards named Flamekin.

Haste

At the beginning of your endstep, sacrifice Flamekin, then exile any number of cards named Flamekin in your graveyard. Each card exiled this way deals 1 damage to any target.

2/1


Probably very broken especially with Burning Inquiry, The Flame of Keld, etc.


I'm reissuing my challenge, as actually that's not what I meant, but very cool nonetheless.

So the Ascend/City's Blessing mechanic cares about the number of permanents

Undergrowth, Delirium, Threshold Crackling Drake all care about the graveyard, and the latter also care about Exile.

The Rack, Ebony Owl Netsuke, Iron Maiden, Venser's Journal, Sword of War and Peace, etc. Care about cards in hand.

I meant total number cards in library, or exile, or types in these zones etc. Is important to your common.

My first thought was Magmatic Force and Havoc Festival to draw a card every turn. but neither work because your commander identifies as blue and black.

I did a gatherer search for black and blue cards that deal damage during each upkeep, and the results are interesting: Most of them dealt with hand size.

There are only 2 unconditional damage artifacts:

And there were two other outliers:

Did you ever test Fevered Visions and or Ebony Owl Netsuke when you were making this deck out of curiosity?

Nemesis on Sugar Daddy

Hey, a fellow Nekusar player! I also play this deck fairly casually, so I'll be making some pretty budget addition suggestions:

Ebony Owl Netsuke

Phyresis

Guildgates and other tap lands if you're having trouble with mana.

Lastly, I don't see too much in the way of defense, I think you may be able to take advantage of pillow fort cards ( Collective Restraint ) or board wipes.
