Arjun, the Shifting Flame

Legendary Creature — Sphinx Wizard


Whenever you cast a spell, put the cards in your hand on the bottom of your library in any order, then draw that many cards.

Arjun, the Shifting Flame Discussion

I love my red reanimator deck with Feldon of the Third Path . Other fun strategies I’ve always wanted to try were wheel decks with Arjun, the Shifting Flame , a +1/+1 counter deck with Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest and an unblockable matters with Kaseto, Orochi Archmage that also doubles as voltron.

I'd recommend using as many wheels as you can, which will force all your opponents to take loads of damage. So definitely include Echo of Eons , Day's Undoing , and Arjun, the Shifting Flame , which although it doesn't wheel your opponents, it lets you draw to the cards/ win combo you need. If you're looking for a win con, I'd recommend Demonic Consultation + Labaratory Maniac.

I don't believe Nekusar, the Mindrazer is allowed in the deck, since the commander doesn't have black in its color identity. Might I recommend a replacement in the form of Fevered Visions , Windfall , or Arjun, the Shifting Flame ?

Siosilvar on Did Someone Say "Draw a Card"?

Some ideas:

Ophidian Eye and Tandem Lookout provide redundancy for Curiosity, and Dizzy Spell can transmute into it.

Arjun, the Shifting Flame and Mindmoil redraw your entire hand on every spell cast, and, Teferi's Puzzle Box makes everybody do it once per turn.

Day's Undoing , Diminishing Returns , and Time Reversal refill your library (well, everyone's) and draw 7.

Gorgon's Head or Gorgon Flail is hilarious when equipped to Niv-Mizzet.

This is really cool. You appear to have a bit of a Wheels subtheme, so maybe Arjun, the Shifting Flame ? Also, you could add the new jace from WAR when it comes out as Lab Man number 2. I am mostly a green player so I can’t help you very much with a Grixis list, sorry :(.

Thanks for the suggestions! :)

I had decided to remove blue sun because it required me to have a ton of open mana, I have substituted him with Arjun, the Shifting Flame for the repeatable draw slot.

I like generator servant, what card would you swap him for?

Just glancing at the list, I think it needs to lose Vexing Devil and Goblin Fireslinger and put in a Bident of Thassa . The devil doesn't do much in EDH, but doubling up on bugs every combat just seems good. If you're going combat heavy, something like Berserkers' Onslaught can get pretty nutty. Arjun, the Shifting Flame is another good reusable wheel. If you wanna abuse drawing cards outside of your command, Psychic Corrosion and Sphinx's Tutelage are great cards.

Fellow Locust God player and I second the bounce cards as a form of removal. If you have a wheel effect ready then bouncing a problematic permanent is a fantastic, otherwise they can remove an obstacle to winning that turn, i.e. an opponents Propaganda . For bounce I run Disperse , Echoing Truth , Into the Roil and Wash Out .

I found that any card 6 cmc or greater was hard to play as I often wanted to cast The Locust God or if he was already on the field I wanted to play my cheap wheels/draw cards, not a single high cmc card. Specifically Windreader Sphinx & Warstorm Surge and to a lesser extent Arjun, the Shifting Flame & Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind .

Solid deck though, we have a lot of the same core elements. Locust God is awesome, he is one of my favorite decks at the moment.
