Arjun, the Shifting Flame Discussion

GreenTrampler on Bug Boi EDH

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.

HezTheGod I think that if the tier list maintainers were shown a comprehensive list depicting your reasoning, it would definitely be examined. They did the same with mine and I myself would love to see your Arjun, the Shifting Flame list be expanded upon. Dissect every facet of your deck, explain your reasoning for it, and you'll definitely paint that picture. Sick list btw, upvoted & saved.

Arjun, the Shifting Flame belongs in high power. He can win the game with dramatic reversal, high tide shenanigans, Laboratory maniac, and/or aetherflux reservoir. There is too much versatility and raw power with his ability for the mid power category. Arjun himself combos with Aetherflux Reservoir , Paradox Engine , and Alhammarret's Archive which are all EDH staples anyway.

You should add in Arjun, the Shifting Flame and Mindmoil ! All the card draw effects! Haha I think these would be great here.

Maybe Arjun, the Shifting Flame for another Mindmoil effect and a Jace's Archivist for a wheel on a stick effect would be good in the 99. Also a Psychosis Crawler because Psychosis Crawler.

Arjun, the Shifting Flame would be really fun in this deck. Also since you are running all sorts of wheels here’s a few more that could go in here:
