Love The Locust God - cool list!
I'm working on a deck over at Revenge of the Nibblers. If it'd be helpful, please feel free to take a look and see if there are any useful cards.
Impact Tremors and Altar of the Brood might be fun to test as pay-offs for the infinite Ashnod's Altar + Skullclamp combo. Shared Animosity is a card you can use to replace a lot of other anthem effects and free up space for big draw and burn spells like Invoke the Firemind, Distant Melody, Dogpile, Keep Watch, andRoar of the Crowd. Kindred Discovery can also be a good finisher if you have combo pieces in play that kill your opponents before you draw out your deck.
It might also be helpful to change your 11/11 split between Islands and Mountains. It looks like your color wheel wants more blue sources.
My build is much more group-hug in terms of card draw since that helps with politics in my playgroup, and I am somewhat wheel-adverse, so I'm happy to see all the different ideas at play in your list.

Have you ever tested with Kilnmouth Dragon (seems broken here), Rimescale Dragon + snow-covered lands (too expensive, maybe?), Dogpile, or Roar of the Crowd? Maybe the new Shared Animosity from Explorers of Ixalan (would still keep the list under $50)?
Have fun brewing and playing!

cannonammo927, for sure. Thanks for the feedback!
I like to keep it in-hand and play it as a finisher with those cards or an Altar of the Brood or Laboratory Maniac on the field. I also like to respond to the last trigger and endlessly recur Blue Sun's Zenith with Ashnod's Altar + Gemstone Array (maybeboard) mana to mill folks out. I can also trigger it mid-combat against an opponent with something like Temple Bell, hit my next-to-last draw trigger, and then Dogpile an opponent out of the game before going down the Blue Sun's Zenith road. Goblin Bombardment is okay with it, too, when it's in the deck.
I think it's a great card - a kind of Trade Secrets - that sneaks win cons into the game for you when you're ready to go off; the card would be bad if anyone played it without an end-game strategy in mind or in-hand, but otherwise it's a lot of fun.

Nice mana balance and creature list!
Have you ever tested with Stormbreath Dragon?
Also, Rimescale Dragon is a hidden gem in R if you can get some snow-covered lands. Pay a snow-covered mana and 2 to put a snow counter on a creature; it taps and then doesn't untap normally again. Good for nerfing blockers.

I've been working on a list using The Locust God. I've moved away from some of my wheel effects like Mindmoil and creatures with triggered wheels to get away from the randomness of what opponents and I discard and draw. I've also found that winning out of nowhere or rebuilding the board doesn't take too long, so I've dropped a lot of counter magic and protection in favor of more draw and direct damage based off of the number of cards or creatures I have. Dogpile, Invoke the Firemind, and Roar of the Crowd have been pretty good.
What do you think of that approach? You can see the list here: Revenge of the Nibblers.

I love The Locust God, but agree that deck construction around that card often comes down to wheel.dec. I've been editing my list to minimize the wheel effects because I don't like the lack of control in terms of what you discard and what you draw. So recurring wheel effects like Arjun, the Shifting Flame, Dragon Mage, and Mindmoil are out while cheaper wheels have stayed for now.
Instead, I've focused on politics (through card draw for everyone) to stay alive and on big pay-off draw and burn cards like Distant Melody, Keep Watch, Dogpile, Roar of the Crowd, and Spiraling Embers. Those cards combined with Sunbird's Invocation, Kindred Discovery, Trade Secrets and the usual combo pieces like Ashnod's Altar, Skullclamp, Goblin Bombardment, Impact Tremors, Laboratory Maniac, Shared Animosity, and Altar of the Brood keep the deck feeling relative fun and fresh through different lines of play. See Revenge of the Nibblers for more.
Not sure how this plays in a very competitive meta, but it is fun to play in a local playgroup and can win out of nowhere with The Locust God on board.
