Font of Mythos
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws two additional cards.

Welcome to EDH. : )

On budget: Teferi's Puzzle Box would be good in this deck. Font of Mythos would be a decent cut I think. You're not giving your opponents as much advantage with the puzzle box, and its draw benefits a bit more from Alhamarret's Archive / Teferi's Ageless Insight / Notion Thief (Your opponents basically aren't allowed to have a hand if you have it out with Notion Thief).
I've run puzzle box with draw doublers in my Jeskai deck, and you do have to be careful you don't self mill with it. The Font has the benefit of keeping things slow and "Steady", as you say.

Lots of good recommendations there.
Never even seen Font of Mythos before. Amazing card... It's a bit expensive but in Chinese it's only like $2.50 including shipping. That one feels like a must-have.
Talisman of Creativity is a solid swap-out.
I'll see if there are any good cards to drop for Whispering Madness. Gunna have to make some adjustments to the deck.
Thanks for the help.

Nekusar is such a fun commander.
Whispering Madness would be a great include here. I don't see the Cipher part of it getting used much, if at all, but honestly a second copy of Windfall is not a bad thing to have here.
Font of Mythos is another one that could go to the maybeboard.
The Talismans are usually a little more expensive, but Talisman of Creativity just got reprinted, so I'd recommend swapping out one of your Diamonds for it.

Looks fun a friend of my has a clone tribal type deck with Thassa, God of the Sea from original theros block as the commander. Id suggest just running Font of Mythos over howling mine. one card a turn doesnt help anyone as much.

My budget for any single card is below $100.
Issue: Card draw and cuts
There are some cards in my deck that I feel can be cut but I don't know what to replace them with. The cards, I see at least, are Spellstutter Sprite, Glen Elendra Archmage, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, and Archmage Ascension.
Although I can absolutely see their place in countering spells to keep a steady board, tutoring cards, and possibly reanimating Nightmares, I think there might be cards that synergize better with Forced Fruition and personal card draw.
There are already cards I've considered, one being Font of Mythos but I already use that in my adapted tstorm823 Zedruu deck, and I'd like to not copy too many spells from one deck to another. And if possible, cutting Howling Mine as well for another personal draw card.
I want to make this deck unique, but at the same time, I don't want to sacrifice too much efficiency for it. So if I'm asking too much of both you, my deck, and myself, please say so, cause that'll rein me in.
Thank you so much!

Cut Day's Undoing - Because it ends the turn, you do not receive any of the damage triggers from Nekusar.
Font of Mythos/Howling Mine/Dictate of Kruphix/etc. effects are a bit of a trap. They look like they should be good with Nekusar but, in actuality, are rather lackluster and tend to help your opponents more than they help you. Nekusar's biggest problem is that he gives your opponents additional cards, making it easier for some opponent to draw into whatever they need to stop you. Each Font of Mythos or similar effect increases the chance your opponents will draw into the card they need to stop you, while only providing a small amount of damage--and only providing that damage if you can keep your Nekusar-like effects on the field. I would include Temple Bell and Geier Reach Sanitarium on this list of cards that should be cut.
Add Teferi's Puzzle Box--unlike Font of Mythos effects, Teferi's Puzzle Box does not provide card advantage to opponents, and can severely disrupt their ability to run tutors and such. It can provide massive, consistent damage per turn, helping you win the game rather quickly.
Helm of the Ghastlord also draws your entire deck with Niv-Mizzet and has the added advantage of forming a soft lock when put on Nekusar. If you play a wheel-type effect (including having Teferi's Puzzle box afield), Ghastlord will force an opponent to discard each card they draw, locking them out of anything other than instants or cards with flash.
Windfall is another wheel effect that you missed that isn't all that expensive.
Do not run Izzet Boilerworks, or any others of these bounce lands, ever. They are just bad cards, and are actually worse in a budget mana base, because of the high likelihood you might have to bounce (and eventually replay) a "this land enters tapped" land.
