Nihil Spellbomb Discussion

Looks good overall. I would personally try to cut some more expensive cards and add some more artifacts or enchantments to help out your game plan.
Spirit of the Spires is possibly low impact. Giving one extra toughness isn't a huge boost, and you may be able to fit something more useful in that spot.
Dromar's Cavern I personally wouldn't run this card, it just feel really bad when you're behind and I don't think that the fixing it gives you is work sacrificing a land. Path of Ancestry is a good, semi-budget alternative.
I'm not 100% sold on Etchings of the Chosen. Since you have a few different types of token generators it may be difficult to have whichever creature type you need. It might be great, I'm not totally sure!
In terms of additions, I've been on board with trying to play 38 lands in most of the decks that I have so maybe add an additional land. I would try to sneak another piece of graveyard hate, perhaps Nihil Spellbomb or Relic of Progenitus?
Also consider moving some enchantment removal to more efficient instant/sorcery removal. I understand it goes against the theme of the deck, so I'd only do so if you find yourself struggling.

Hey! Yes, I use Bojuka Bog to hose other’s graveyard shenanigans. Also, Sentinel Totem, Tormod's Crypt, Grafdigger's Cage, Nihil Spellbomb, and Leyline of the Void (I don’t own a Void but that would be another relatively common used card). Anyway, the only real answers to those are artifact/enchantment removal cards. So yes, Bane of Progress is something I could totally add. I own one already but I believe it’s in another deck at the moment. It should be a card I own more of. It’s a fantastic EDH card. Rampage of the Clans is another one I own but have in another deck. I know it gives the opponent’s creatures but I love that it’s removal at instant speed. I’ve used it a few times to great effect. Acidic Slime or Reclamation Sage are handy one-offs, then there’s Wave of Vitriol bit of a bomb card. I use that one in my Gitrog deck.
I know there’s a ton of artifact removal out there that can respond to most of the graveyard hate cards but sometimes when my meta knows I’m running a deck that uses the graveyard they’re prepared.

Mainboard Ideas: Swap Sarkhan, the Dragonspeaker for Kolaghan's Command. Maybe consider trimming 1/4 Blood Crypts to add a fourth Polluted Delta to help the Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger escape plan.

In addition to Archfiend to force your opponents to not want to sacrifice their creatures I like Grave Betrayal It is more mana to cast but with all the removal in this deck it can well more than make up for it in value. Also stealing your opponents creatures seems way more brutal to your opponents than just making them sac their creatures. What do you do about opponents who operate out of their graveyard. All my decks run in a way where my graveyard could be considered my second library. Leyline of the Void could be a great answer. Even something simple like a Nihil Spellbomb is good too.

Nice!! Nekusar was my first serious commander and I really enjoyed playing him. I have taken apart the deck for pieces to add to my other decks. I'll offer some of my ideas. I used to run Teferi's Puzzle Box and Phyrexian Tyranny as my major damage dealers. I think you could add a few more budget pseudo-wheel effects and here some of the cards I used to run because I never pulled the trigger on buying the OG Wheel: Khorvath's Fury , Magus of the Wheel , Commit / Memory , Whispering Madness and Echo of Eons . Unless your meta plays a lot of graveyard decks I would get rid of Leyline of the Void and Nihil Spellbomb . There are a few other cards that have Nekusar's ability stapled to them so they might be worth adding: Fate Unraveler , Underworld Dreams and Spiteful Visions . Price of Knowledge is a pretty vicious card if the game goes late and you can get a lot of cards in your opponents' hands. I'm not so sure you need Mindcrank , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries or Psychic Corrosion either. Unless you are going for a mill strategy you might be able to pull most of the mill cards and put things that work more with Nekusar.
But you can do whatever you like. I know that my friends called my deck "salty" and I would get targeted early because of how aggro my deck was. Nekusar paints a target on your back because he hits everyone for one of the most essential parts of playing Magic and it's very hard to get around his damage. Good luck with the deck!!

Definitely add: Skullclamp (one of the best cards in the deck), Dusk Legion Zealot low impact, but you generally want to get a bunch of creatures out early, Viscera Seer super strong and again, this is a deck where you really want to start out strong, Painful Truths (the best draw spell in Mardu), Indulgent Aristocrat (super strong way to aggro people out while also getting a board presence early), Yahenni, Undying Partisan this just doesn't ever die and gets very big
I'd recommend: Nihil Spellbomb (I think this is almost always a mustplay in black.)

It's on budget, so I'll keep that in mind as I suggest cards. Caustic Caterpillar is a great creature that's basically an instant. I noticed you don't have very many sacrifice outlets, at least not ones that cost 0 mana. Like Viscera Seer and Whisper, Blood Liturgist .
Nihil Spellbomb is just a solid card, even without the synergy with your commander.
