Murder of Crows Discussion

Maybe Laboratory Maniac, since it allows you to benefit from decking out, meaning you don't have to fear using The Locust God's ability. Purphoros, God of the Forge is a bit pricey, but he pings your enemy for 1 every time you activate The Locust God's ability. If you want to make a horde of locusts, Shared Animosity would make 5 locusts deal 20 damage. Murder of Crows makes an infinite combo with The Locust God. That is, if you have a card like Ashnod's Altar. Nice deck, keep up the good work, and I hope my suggestions help.

Murder of Crows can help filter, and I've always wanted to play it. And it's coming out in Masters 25 so that'll be easy

I was checking out your neheb deck and figured I'd swing thru here too
+1 from me. If you have a minute, please swing by my locust god deck and tell me what you think!

I think you could do without Ixidron andMalignus; they do not seem to fit to your strategy. Arjun, the Shifting Flame and Murder of Crows are nice, but I think these could be replaced with more useful creatures too. Some ideas:
- Goblin Electromancer; makes casting most of your spells cheaper;
- Arcanis the Omnipotent; nice draw engine;
- Mercurial Chemister; also a nice draw engine;
- Psychosis Crawler; like Niv-Mizzet but even more dangerous;
- Windreader Sphinx; insane in your deck with all those locusts.
There are more expensive cards I could recommend, but since you're on a budget ...As for other wheel effects, try Reforge the Soul.
P.S.: Would appreciate some feedback on one of my decks, if you have time!

Roilmage's Trick - Not a very efficient spell, even with the draw. Giving creatures -2/0 for a turn at 4 mana can be better.
Pendulum of Patterns - The 3 life isn't amazing, but if you're playing blue the 5 mana to draw one card is just bad. Implement of Examination at 4 mana to draw 2 cards is also not good. You still have cards like Windfall and Reforge the Soul you can add. Even a simple Divination is 2 cards for only 3 mana.

WalkingIllusion: I'm already running most of those combos, if you look in the "Win Conditions" section of the deck description :) I'm running Murder of Crows already, but I prefer to use Altar of Dementia/Phyrexian Altar in place of Blasting Station. Not to mention Skullclamp+ Altar, or Kindred Discovery haha.
Thanks for your comment! You're welcome to upvote the deck if you think it's solid ;)

I feel like having the near infinite combos that include your commander should be a must for the commander but I've never played this commander out myself.
Besides that your deck looks very solid!

cracks knuckles Okay, let's do this thing.
You know that I'm going to be biased towards running him as a combo-centric general. However, I'll try to stay on the track of a combat-based deck...
Okay, first the cuts. I don't think that Archetype of Imagination, Goblin Bushwhacker, Reckless Bushwhacker, Runehorn Hellkite, Sprite Noble, Incendiary Command, Spellbook, Thunderstaff, Leyline of Anticipation, Vedalken Orrery, Contested War Zone, or Hearth Charm do enough work for you to be worth a slot. Generally speaking, I would shoot for boosts higher than +1 to your creatures (like Coat of Arms).
Burn at the Stake could do a lot of work here. You're in danger of overextending into a board wipe, which suggests cards like Eldrazi Monument. Forgotten Creation is a fantastic repeatable draw source that will keep giving you advantage as long as you control The Locust God. You do need to protect him, however, as he is your primary source of tokens in this list. Lightning Greaves is a must for this purpose. If you play in a meta with a lot of draw, Plagiarism is cute (and dirty, if you cast it on the same turn as one of your wheels. Finally, Alhammarret's Archive allows you to "double dip" on all of your draw effects, which can be fantastic.
If you want to exclude infinite combos altogether, Goblin Bombardment currently goes infinite with Murder of Crows. I would, however, add one more infinite combo to your deck: Aggravated Assault + Sword of Feast and Famine. I always include at least one infinite combo; it gives me a way to win when I'm desperate.
And finally, you might want some more ramp; it's tricky building an aggro deck when your best producer of tokens only comes down once you have 6 mana.
Happy deckbuilding! I hope this helps ;)
