CalUrycki on The Locust God Prototype

My suggestions:

You have 2 Skullclamps and 2 Thought Vessels???

Cuts
- Slip Through Space
- Keep Watch
- Favorable Winds
- Visions of Beyond
- Deepfathom Skulker
- Merfolk Looter
- Disrupt
- Molten Frame

Adds
+ Mystic Confluence
+ Fiery Confluence
+ Tezzeret the Seeker
+ Fevered Visions
+ Intruder Alarm
+ Dack Fayden
+ Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip
+ Desolate Lighthouse
+ Gitaxian Probe
+ Obelisk of Urd???

It would require an overhaul, but all the Time Walk effects would be great with your commander, though they are a bit less fun for the table :) Also, Stranglehold is a great generic hate card, if you find you want it.

Have you considered looters? Looter il-Kor, Merfolk Looter, Enclave Cryptologist, Desolate Lighthouse, and Magus of the Bazaar are my favorites.

Coat of Arms, Shared Animosity, and Throne of the God-Pharaoh seem like fun win conditions.

Whirlpool Warrior would give you two wheel effects.

Fateful Showdown could provide value with a damage and a wheel effect.

Alhammarret's Archive, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Jori En, Ruin Diver for more draws.

Dream Halls is ridiculous with all the card draw in your deck.

Mizzix's Mastery seems very good here.

hi :)

thanks for your Feedback and your great suggestions. let me come down to them step by step:

  • Burn from Within: i play it over Banefire cause the "creature looses indestructible" and the "Exile" effect got me better Advantage in many situations.

  • Reality Shift is a great Card i hadnt on my Radar. i will try to get my Hands on it.

  • Wild Ricochet would fit in this type of deck. only reason i dont play it is that i dont own one currently

  • Fellwar Stone and Star Compass are great. i play my copies of Stones in my other EDH-decks currently. Darksteel Ingot is great for me as my playgroup Plays a lot of artifact hate including board wipes. same reason why i play those mana rocks that can net me a Card. to be honest, a Izzet Cluestone draws me a Card in about 2 games out of 10 - mostly because i have other insane draw engines online.

  • Hypersonic Dragon is nice to have but maybe slotted out in future. maybe for the new god from Hour of Devastation. we will see :)

  • Izzet Chronarch is ok and helps getting my Little Fox online. i love the multicoloured flavor :) of course it could be changed to lower the curve.

  • Desolate Lighthouse is not necessary in here. first i like to avoid colorless mana as much as possible, second this deck offers so much Card Advantage that we dont Need this effect, third in multiplayer you will always hit something with Cards like Pyroblast :)

  • Grixis Panorama: i didnt know that this Card exists.. i like it. Terramorphic Expanse can be included as well. i just didnt cause i dont have any copies left currently.

  • Lightning Greaves: i dont have a copie of them. i would Slot them in

  • Turnabout: i love Combos and i will try to get some around this Card and Reset in here. thats a future Goal of this deck.

i will soon have a look at your list, study it and will give ya a Feedback! go izzets! :)

I really like your list! I have an Izzet deck I'm working on as well and if you can spare a look I'd appreciate it, Jori En, Diving on a Budget

So for your deck,

Is Burn from Within worth it? If you're trying to kill players and whatnot is Banefire better?

Maybe Incinerate could be swapped for Reality Shift?

Could Wild Ricochet have a place in here?

Fellwar Stone and Star Compass might be better than some of the three mana rocks, especially Darksteel Ingot. How often do you crack Izzet Cluestone to draw a card? In an average 10 game stretch?

Izzet Chronarch could be Archaeomancer if you want to lower the curve. The multicolor might matter if you get Crackleburr going but still seems good.

you have 7 sorcery spells you're giving flash with Hypersonic Dragon, is it still worth it?

Desolate Lighthouse helps turn situational cards into new stuff, like if you're playing a green opponent with Pyroblast in hand.

Grixis Panorama and Terramorphic Expanse are fetch lands that are easy on the budget

how has Mana Flare preformed for you? doubling mana for your opponents seems risky, but i would like to hear your expirence with it

Is Lightning Greaves better than Swiftfoot Boots for you? or do you not like the shroud?

I see in your maybeboard you're considering Turnabout, FYI that card combos pretty hard with Nivix Guildmage if you want to go that route.

Holy card draw, Batman!

But for real, this looks super fun! A couple suggestions:

Desolate Lighthouse and Blighted Cataract seem like good includes. Low opportunity cost to play - just cut a couple basics. You may want to consider Boseiju, Who Shelters All as well since this is a spell-heavy deck.

Additionally, I'm not sure Day's Undoing works the way you want it to. Since Locust God's trigger would go on the stack in response to drawing the cards, it would exist on the stack before you hit the "end the turn" clause, and it would get removed and you would get no locusts :(. Maybe replace it with Arcanis the Omnipotent or Mercurial Chemister? Not great suggestions, but better than Day's Undoing here.

Disperse could be Into the Roilis there any space for Ponder, Preordain, or Treasure Cruise?

is Izzet Keyrune good enough? How many times has it turning into a creature mattered?could be a Coalition Relic instead?

if you want another combo, Helm of Awakening, top and future sight draw your deck

Desolate Lighthouse could do work
