Brass Squire Discussion

Maybe add some more Shimmer Myr and more Myr Galvanizer. Personally, I like playing Myrs with Brass Squire with equipment and some indestructible gift. I personally think that this is better, but what you are doing could work too.

Maybe drop a few lands for other cards. Do you have a budget? If so, can you give a rough estimate so we can know what to suggest and what not. I'd include some non-basics like Wind-Scarred Crag, Command Tower, Battlefield Forge, Temple of Triumph, and Rogue's Passage. You should be running about 37 lands, and 40 seems a little high. I'd also cut some of the worse equipment like Bone Saw, Dagger of the Worthy, Golem's Heart, Livewire Lash, Slagwurm Armor, the Monuments, and the equipment dealing with other creatures like Stoneforge Masterwork. Viridian Longbow and Welding Jar.
Some replacements and additional cuts would be Steelshaper's Gift, Sword of Feast and Famine, Armory Automaton, Auriok Windwalker, Brass Squire, Sigarda's Aid, and Leonin Shikari to name a few. EDHREC is a brilliant site for building EDH decks. Go to the Commanders > 2 Color > Boros, then scroll down to Akiri and Bruse. It has all these options, as well as many more, and links to different decks headed by the same commanders.

Why are you running so many equipments and so few creatures, that can carry any of them? Why are trying to play this voltron style, even the commander is clearly not designed for this kind of playstyle? I mean, you pointed out, that your commander is good at tutoring stuff, why not then run only a few good equipments and more very good equipment carryer? Cards that come to my mind:

MsSysbit - What good is Hero's Blade when you have only two legendary creatures? Not to mention that it doesn't provide not that much value. Brass Squire is an okay card, but it's flaw is that you have to tap it, and your opponent can easily respond to it with ease, making it predicable play. Conqueror's Flail works better in a multi-colored EDH since you have more access to multi-colored permeants on the field. The only good inclusion would be Godsend, yes, but the spot for it is tough.

Looking at this list again I have 3 more recommendations. First off there are enough Low cost instants that Isochron Scepter might be worth a try. Also Brass Squire or Auriok Windwalker might also help with instant speed equp.

Yo Ronkettlej, that would be a good choice and i had Brass Squire initially in my deck but i do believe i underestimated the spell cost to re-equip an item already on the battlefield.....kudos....he will find a way to squire his brass in? get it?

I'm also working on locust god and just a few observations from my playtesting.
The Locust God + Skullclamp + Thornbite Staff + Brass Squire is a strictly worse version of Ashnod's Altar + Skullclamp + The Locust God that is more complicated to set up when Clamp altar will draw your deck and net you infinite colorless mana, at this point Braingeyser, laborotory maniac, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Rolling Earthquake or Goblin Bombardment all become win on the spot cards(situational excluding multiplayer which would be restricted to throne, lab, quake or Purphoros.)Outside of this single combo interaction both Thornbite Staff and Brass Squire are pretty bad in the list and are not doing much on their own, pair that with well placed removal on even Skullclamp and these draws become DEAD.
However Ashnod's altar is inherently good in this deck due to the amount of mana you can pump out of it , potentially playing locust god into brainstorm and curve right into kozilek.
Also I noticed almost no countermagic in your list. If you are going to play a combo based strategy cards like Force of Will, Mana Drain, and Pact of Negation are amazing options for tap out protection against other blue decks. Dream Fracture is another solid option.
Personally I feel Psychosis Crawler to be a bit of a dud in this list, it is very expensive and unless your already going off and screams "Deal with me before I kill you all" If your on a 2 turn set up Purphoros is a much safer play with fewer outs to dealing with him and a faster clock, 20 tokens gets a table win, 14 in 1v1. Skullclamp makes this happen with 7-10 mana. Energy Tap can pull 6 colorless off Locust god for a single blue. Where I'm going with this is cards that function well by themselves that ALSO enable those explosive plays will help to add consistency to your list.
I may sugest cutting the Thornbite+Squire and testing Basalt Monolith+Rings of Brighthearth. A well known infinite mana combo but also works really well in this deck with cards like fetch lands, Arcanis the Omnipotent becomes Ancestral Recall x2 for 2, Merfolk Looter/JVP and Isochron Scepter to name a few. Basalt+any sol land/card by itself fuels a T2 Locust God and helps cast cards like Enter the Infinite or Omniscience quickly
Cards like Mana Vault, Basalt Monolith, and Grim Monolith all get really insane with Goblin Welder.... who triggers Rings of Brighthearth to allow for double welding. If you add in some draw spells with discard like Careful Study Faithless Looting and Frantic Search your seeing more cards, netting more insects than most cantrips i.e. Ponder, Serum Visions, or Preordain, you can pitch things like Darksteel Citadel or ingot respond to removal and weld out your combo pieces or refresh your monolith/Vault
One Final note, I didn't Se Chasm Skulker you may look into him. he acts as kind of a Locust God piggy bank storing a second wave of tokens that can refresh a board after wrath effects or double the amount of mana you can generate via Altars, and at the very least its a creature that just gets absurdly large if unanswered.
Overall though glad to see others brewin' locust, he is a blast to play and I wish you the best of luck with your deck! Feel free to pm me if you'd like to talk more about the list I'm always looking for people to bounce ideas and suggestions off of.
