Some more noncreature spells that get you creatures you can use with the Staff: Abstruse Interference , Efficient Construction , Geist Snatch , Grip of Phyresis , Metallurgic Summonings , Orochi Hatchery , Rise from the Tides , Skywise Teachings , and Thopter Spy Network .

Depending on the decks in your pod, certain suggestions may be better than others.

Open Into Wonder maybe? Warkite Marauder , Hostage Taker and Cloud Pirates for sure.

Coastal Piracy for flavor. Bedlam for fun.

Grip of Phyresis at the right moment can steal Swiftfoot Boots or some other annoying artifact right before you choose what permanent to steal.

looks like you can produce lots of mana. Sadistic Sacrament perhaps? Also since you have a thievery build maybe consider Grip of Phyresis, and Corrupted Conscience. great deck. +1'ed

If not wanting to run equipment what about stealing it? Things like Grip of Phyresis or Memnarch might be more on theme. Would Training Grounds make the copying cheaper?

I think some of the weakest cards are Boreas Charger (few plains), Grip of Phyresis (which is adorable though so I love it), Sphinx of Jwar Isle (even CMC), and Prognostic Sphinx (hasn't seemed useful).

I would recommend adding some of the whirlpool creatures like Whirlpool Drake, Whirlpool Rider and Whirlpool Warrior; basically they're all Winds of Change on legs (or fins, or wings :)). They're great to cast when you've got the Locust God on the field. Tolarian Winds and Keep Watch are also great, especially the latter when you already have a nice Locust army. Considering the amount of artifacts in your deck, I'd also really consider Molten Psyche.

To make room for some of this, I'd remove anything that does not add to your overall strategy. I'd choose cards like Tyrant's Familiar, Grip of Phyresis and Clout of the Dominus.

In case you need any more inspiration, check out my Locust God deck.
