Looks neat!

Are you using Garza Zol, Plague Queen for any reason? The new legendary Inalla, Archmage Ritualist is pretty easy to get right now, and taps for effects(and lets you get copies of Trinket Mage and Inspired Sprite to get more draws/artifact search.) Praetor's Grasp is always an amazing card to find something in an opponents deck.

Since you have a combo you want to get out, you might like cards like Whir of Invention, Artificer's Intuition, the more expensive Fabricate to get paradise out, and for getting the Freed from the Real try Drift of Phantasms and Dimir Machinations. You can also run the other transmute's like Dizzy Spell or Clutch of the Undercity etc. to find other things in your deck too.

Racecourse Fury is not especially high on the threat list, so you can have essentially free haste-enable on the cheap.Quicksilver Dagger enables tap+damage+draw a card for cheap. Unscythe, Killer of Kings is a silly card that might find a place.Hematite Talisman and Lapis Lazuli Talisman let you untap other creatures to boot.

I'd lose some of the instant/one-off untaps- they're cheap but only good for one motion, whereas you want to be doing it over and over again. Same with ETB like Breaching Hippocamp. Chain Stasis is fun because you could pay 2 to do it again on another creature, making it 2 - trigger inspired. Tidal Bore can let you get out an extra untap or tap when you're strapped for mana.

Niblis of the Breath and Puppeteer are really good(and are 3-drops for things like phantasm and machination searches), as are Stonybrook Angler.

Thassa's Ire isn't the most mana-effective option but it's a one-drop that lets you do it over and over again as long as you have mana. You also may want something like Fortuitous Find to bring back things. Recurr is always good! :D

Righteous Authority is another card that comes to mind for me in terms of something that at a glance looks really great with lots of potential with so many Spellbook effects available...and all the ckeeky kamigawa cards out there like Jushi Apprentice/Kiyomaro, First to Stand but again mana investment makes it pretty tough to pull off for 5 mana to be just part of a combo piece.

@Sinist3r yeah id love to take a peek at another Skaab Ruinator brew!and yeah i agree about card disadvantage, life gain, and +1/+1 counter based cards to be difficult to navigate traps for a lot of players (I've been that guy more than once..).

@Xica thank you for bringing Nimble Obstructionist to my attention! i'll have to playtest that guy.... i would like to see you being right about some of these cards finding a place.

@sylvannos Hair-Strung Koto and Realms Uncharted seem pretty interesting... Hedron Crab with maybe some shennagans with Pili-Pala + Freed from the Real and Crucible of Worlds?

+1 Maybe consider dropping Elvish Mystic/Sylvan Caryatid for Fertile Ground? Then you could add Freed from the Real and have another possible infinite mana (and infinite untap of all permanents) Take a look at my protoype Taptics to see how that infinite mana combo can be played out.

I don't exactly get the combo between follower and second wind. You can tap and untap it infinitely, but how do you get mana out of this? I think this is usually played with Freed from the Real and something as Weirding Wood.

Nonetheless, Zendikar Resurgent could be pretty useful for you.

He was one of the initial infinite mana combos with Training Grounds + Voltaic Construct + Palladium Myr but they are now just stand-ins for Bloom Tender and Freed from the Real

Benefactorist on Locust God - EDH/Commander Deck

Hey, Homelessguy, thanks for your suggestions and your comment. I don't think I can swing for Mind Over Matter at this time, could be a fun include at a later date, though.

However, looking at the deck, I realized I didn't add a lot of creatures I was thinking of originally during the build, so I removed Freed from the Real (don't really need the untap ability except for Jace's Archivist) and replaced it with your suggestion of Breath of Fury, let's make a lot of hasty locusts! Woo!

I like the untap business going here. Consider Kiora's Follower, Freed from the Real, Fatestitcher, Drift of Phantasms, Crab Umbra. Maybe take a look at my deck Taptics for some other ideas.
