greyninja on Flash Man: Competitive Locust God

2 days ago

I just finished building The Locust God and our decks have a few similarities!

I eventually want to add the Dramatic Reversal/Isochron Scepter/Paradox Engine combos, but I am running a few Mind Over Matter and Skullclamp combos. I haven't had a chance to play it against my friends yet but I'm excited regardless

Super jealous of your Timetwister and Wheel of Fortune. And I'm curious, are Hydroblast and Pyroblast in the deck due to your meta playing a lot of blue/red?

+1 from me! Please check out my Locust God deck and tell me what you think! (Link) Cheers!

I would like to second Godo, Bandit Warlord, Akiri has vigilance so you can get a second attack in.

Some other cards that I like for this combination.

Prowler's Helm Nobody generally runs walls so it usually works wonders.

Fate Forgotten Instant speed exile artifact/enchantment.

Pyroblast just because there are a ton of blue players in my meta and countering their stuff is hilarious.

Tormod's Crypt is an artifact graveyard hate. This is meta dependent. I actually run this and Rest in Peace just because there are a ton of reanimator decks in my meta.

I like the deck. Your deck is probably higher end/faster than mine. I will be stealing some of your card draw ideas.

Daedalus19876 on The Ten Plagues: Locust God EDH | *PRIMER*

Apparently I can't actually OPEN those accordion folders I created, because clicking them just hyperlinks to the users in question. Dammit.

Here's the gist of it, abbreviated (sorry):

RazortoothMtg: I felt I had a few options, but I needed to be able to use that combo even when holding up 0 mana. That leaves me 2 options: a free spell like Snapback or Pyrokinesis, or Simian Spirit Guide+Pyroblast. The former seemed better, and I got to kill a Kaalia deck with Snapback so I like it, hehe.

TheRedGoat: Sorry for how curt this is about to sound; I lost probably 700 words in those damnable spoiler boxes above :/ In short:

Words of War is inefficient and requires extra setup alas. I find Leyline of Anticipation to be subpar in this case, and slots are tight. Breath of Fury goes infinite with a draw outlet as long as I have any one undefended opponent, but I cut it anyway because it's too easy to disrupt. My deck is fast enough now (average T4 win) that Mystic Retrieval is too much mana. Hostility works for a couple combos in place of Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, but it's a very bad substitute because it won't save you from decking yourself if the effect in question draws more than 1 card. Also, you can't use Hostility as recursion to re-draw your GY. I would honestly try to get Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre if you want to cut a few $$s, but you do need an "Eldrazi shuffle" for the deck to function right. Purphoros, God of the Forge is virtually never a creature (barely have enough devotion in the deck to turn him on) so I'm not running Curiosity. I did add Mind Over Matter for the Niv-Mizzet combo tho. And when you do make that more casual Locust God deck, feel free to link me! :)

Again, sorry for the curtness. If you want more detail feel free to ask for clarification.

This is a year old and I devote the most effort on this than any of my other decks. It's a strong control shell filled with various strategies. Some of the inclusions are adjustments to various metas I play (For instance, Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast vs. blue-focused metas). I hope this deck could get some good suggestions, but it's fine if any reader is stumped. Sorry if I'm too lazy to write a description. Happy reading.

1) Flash + Protean Hulk -> Nomads en-Kor + Cephalid Illusionist Laboratory Maniac

2) Show and Tell / Flash + Academy Rector -> Omniscience, try to win.

3) Eternal Scourge + Food Chain -> General Tazri + Halimar Excavator/Kalastria Healer

Others: Ad Nauseam + Angel's Grace/Laboratory Maniac + Tainted Pact

I don't think Simian Spirit Guide into Pyroblast or REB works. The problem is you don't have any way to discard Kozilek and loop your deck, since you won't necessarily have infinite mana to activate The Locust God with this combo. (It's the same problem I ran into trying to loop Frantic Search, there's no way to dump extra cards and you eventually deck yourself.)

If you're looking for the least number of dead cards, the best I can think of is Simian Spirit Guide + Firestorm. Firestorm is a little bit less dead than Flash, and it doesn't need any extra mana to go off.

Also, Chain of Vapor isn't a loop, you just want to stop the combo with your whole deck (one card on top!) in your hand so you can use one of your other combos to win.

I know I want to include Kindred Discovery in the deck for sure, I simply don't know yet which combo will be the one here. I would like to make it as compact as possible, so there would not be too many dead cards included.

Simply to add to your list, another combo I thaught about (did not saw it anywhere but probably it has been talked about) would be Simian Spirit Guideinto something like Pyroblast or Red Elemental Blast. The cards would not be dead outside the combo since they can be used to great effects in cEDH, and we could slot in Guide which would be amazing. We would also have access to the Chain of Vaporloop, I think it would be enough. Thoughts? I think this would be the most compact way to go.

AlarmedNine on Ancestral Animar

My list remains unchanged as of right now. I still use Drake since it is a staple in my meta. Most of the decks utilize their commanders as engines, so creature theft is high. I only got a few games in the new league, so far its mainly Ezuri Turns, Edric, Tasigur Seasons Past, Atraxa variants, Zur ,and a few other just goodstuff decks. Probably will look into REB or Pyroblast.

I still think Animar is fine, just has has a lot of heat on it, and can't handle Archenemy very well. With the recent league banning of PoK, and the amount of heat Animar was getting, I have gone back to Breya for a bit.
