Nekusar, the Mindrazer

Legendary Creature — Zombie Wizard

At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player draws an additional card.

Whenever an opponent draws a card, Nekusar, the Mindrazer deals 1 damage to that player.

If there's one thing I know, it's how to make discard happen; have been known to use a Wheel & Deal Nekusar, the Mindrazer EDH deck.

In colors you have:

And probably so many more that I've forgotten. If I give it enough time, I might be able to find "retro" framed discard-specific cards.. but that sounds like fun. I'll update you if I cross any!

Notion Thief seems out of place in this deck. With Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Fate Unraveler, Spiteful Visions, etc - why would you want them only drawing one card per turn? Sure, the card advantage for you is good, and stops them from drawing from wheels, but I feel like the entire point of a Nekusar deck of any type is to make people draw themselves to death. To each his own, if I read into the deck incorrectly.

So many awesome cards have been revealed, that I cannot possibly comment on all of them, but that new Sheoldred will be perfect for my Nekusar, the Mindrazer EDH deck!

Given the Archenemy setting, I would definitely go with good 'ol Nicol Bolas, especially since many of the Archenemy scheme cards directly reference him. From there, I'd assemble a deck with some kind of long-winded game plan that culminates in a big play, supported and enabled by a thematic scheme deck on the side.

Of course, it ultimately comes down to how casual of a setting she'd be using the deck in. There's lots of cards like Nekusar, the Mindrazer and Sen Triplets which can be min-maxxed into becoming incredibly oppressive and competitive lock-down/solitair-style decks if that's more what you're after, but personally I'd avoid decks like that outside of a directly competitive environment.

As a fan of Nekusar, the Mindrazer, I can confidantly say that this deck looks really solid. Something I've always liked is Library of Leng. It lets you discard cards you may want to keep back to the top of your deck, which allows you to keep your best stuff when you wheel everyone elses best toys away. Sangromancer can offer a bit of extra life in case you end up being a a target. Reinterpret is a wild counterspell that can lead to some fun plays and drop bombs while also interrupting your opponents plans. Feed the Swarm gives you another way to potentially deal with pesky enchantments. Burning Inquiry is just a pet card of mine. Can really mess up peoples plans. Wheel of Misfortune needs to be read and re-read 7 times, but it puts in so much work while being just a touch chaotic. Wheel and Deal can also really mess with people, especially since its a wheel at instant speed. You are already running Notion Thief, so Narset, Parter of Veils is just another way to lock out extra card draw. Bloodchief Ascension gets out of hand really fast, and very quickly ends the game. last thing, Tinybones, Trinket Thief is a nice little card draw engine that doubles as a wincon. If you are having a hard time trying to find cuts, I have noticed there are quite a few cards in the deck that have really high mana values. I would personally start there. I am not sure your budget, so feel free to take all of these suggestions as you see fit. From one Grixis player to another, I wish you the best of luck with your deck.

Great suggestions thank you for the comments.

I honestly forgot about Teferi's Puzzle Box and I didn't even think about Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator but that's a great combo.

I first wanted to keep out Ophidian Eye and Curiosity because I was worried they draw my deck dead with Nekusar, the Mindrazer and having them just for Niv-Mizzet, Parun seemed not really worth taking a card slot for me, since I have no way of getting him consistent on the battlefield. I also didn't realize here that Glint-Horn Buccaneer actually kills everybody in the discard step at the end of the turn with enough cards in my hand.
