Megalomania on Padeem, Consul of Frustration

Since youre using Paradox Engine, I would definitely try to find ways to use and abuse Isochron Scepter. Maybe use Brain Freeze as your win con?

Future Sight can be so OP especially with Paradox Engine and a lot of rocks in play, but I get why you have second thoughts about using it. The Engine can substitute for the Helm in the Future Sight combo though. Also throwing out Mind Over Matter and Gilded Lotus (if its not yet there) for your consideration.

Lastly, not a big fan of the Mindslaver combo. IMO, its too clunky and unreliable considering the direction the deck seems to be taking.

I have some questions about some of the synergies though. Doesn't it seem redundant to target a creature using Cyclonic Rift + Cowardice? I mean...you're going to return target permanent anyway. Also, your wincon doesn't have much redundancy. If you're going to constantly be dealing damage via cards in hand, why don't you include The Rack as well? Additionally, you may not have enough counter spells to remove every single creature on the board. Have you considered cards like Propaganda? Now, take this worth a grain of salt, but maybe you could consider incorporating cards like Prodigal Sorcerer + Curiosity + Mind Over Matter? While it is a reliable wincon it also feeds into your deck's strategy. Especially Sorcerer.

Overall, your strategy of constant board disruption seems like a good way to keep the pressure up on the opponent. I can't wait to see how this deck evolves further.

Temple Bell and Mind Over Matter is a nice alternate wincon with this deck just keep drawing cards until you discard your eldrazi Shuffle up your library and continue until all your opponents deck out.

For reals though, I would add maybe an infinite combo? Splinter Twin combo maybe? Also, Mind Over Matter!

NV_1980 on I'll hold on to that for you!

Hi Seraph_Six,

That's quite the combo. Niv and Mind by themselves are already quite powerful; the Eldrazi just makes the whole thing infinite. One problem: Mind Over Matter costs well over 10 euro's where I live AND very few vendors actually have one. Furthermore, I wouldn't have a clue on what to get rid off to make room ... Thanks for the info though. If ever I acquire this very powerful card, I'll give it some thoughts again.

Mind Over Matter + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre/Kozilek, Butcher of Truth + Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind = Draw, Ping, Discard, Untap, Repeat until all opponents are dead. :)

butthurt_qrow - I was testing other stuff in place of Teferi's Puzzle Box and I have found that I miss that card a lot, so it will definitely be getting added back into the list. Also Whip of Erebos is a neat bit of sustain that I hadn't thought of before, so thank you I will see if I can include it.

goblinguiderevealpls - Memory Jar is incredibly strong, I'm honestly not quite sure why it has taken me so long to look for ways to get it into the list. I probably forget it exists any time I go to edit things. As for Notion Thief, I think it is extremely strong for lists looking to combo off very hard with things like Mind Over Matter + Temple Bell , but I am trying to keep this list more semi-competitive because of the audience I am playing with most of the time. This means I am probably running less combo potential. This leads to the next couple of cards, Dream Halls and Mind Over Matter. Dream Halls may make the list, but I will probably refrain from running Mind Over Matter for the time being simply because while I want the deck to be able to win, I don't want to have every game run the same, ending with me going infinite. Necropotence is probably a card I will find the space for as well. Phyrexian Arena and Geth's Grimoire are also cards on my radar that will find space, I'm almost positive. Commit / Memory is another card I have been looking at, and I guess I never got around to putting it in the maybeboard while I figured out what I was going to cut for it. I like Deadly Tempest a lot, didn't even know that card existed. Finally, regarding the Pact of Negation suggestion from Delta-117, yes, I know the card is great, but I also am not sure that I want to spend that large of a chunk of my budget for upgrades to this deck on it just yet. Long term, yes the card gets in here, currently, it's probably going to need to sit on the bench.

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!
