I've been toying around with The Locust God for about a month now. At first it was just a funzies deck and has quickly become not only one of my favorite decks to play, but also one of the most competitive and consistent. At first it was just a control shell with rocks into big value stuff and with either Coat of Arms or Shared Animosity beats. But after testing with some storm pieces it seems to be a better way to go. One card that has been absolutely insane and I haven't seen it in many lists is Battle Hymn not only does it chain with wheels well, it also enables you to cast your rocks in between wheels and is also great to flashback. On that note I also have been testing Recoup which has been surprisingly good in the few games i've seen it. One that i'm constantly on the fence about is Mizzix's Mastery I guess it comes down to if you're in magical christmas land it's awesome, but even then you have choose and stack your targets correctly or casting it without counter protection. I like your list though, very tight. I'll have to put mine in sometime soon to get some feedback.

Hi, I really like the deck and I've made a lot of mono red decks recently so hopefully I can add some good suggestions:
Daretti, Scrap Savant - I think even for pure looting he is a great addition and meshes well with squee. Red has the corner on the market for artifact recursion so it might be a good idea to consider Goblin Welder too. Artifacts like Memory Jar or Eldrazi Monument(flying is pretty relevant with goblins) are excellent in mono red and win games.
Past in Flames/Recoup - Personally I include them in every mono red build, they are pure gas when you need it either from the hand or graveyard. Almost 1/4 of your deck is sorcery/instant spells so they could be relevant.
Wheel of Fortune/Reforge the Soul/Runehorn Hellkite/Magus of the Wheel - Unfortunately Wheel of Fortune doubled in price recently but the other options are great when you find yourself needing gas to close out a game.
Anyways hope these help!

Hey, so I've been play testing your list and I've noticed your cmc feels a little high. A couple observations:
I tried Karn Liberated and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon in my own list and drawing them early is harsh. Have you considered Codex Shredder in the possible situation where discarding them is necessary early on for daretti's +2? It's great for returning them to your hand when needed and throws a card in the yard each turn which can be nice. I replaced both with Unstable Obelisk (this is iffy since it doesn't help get daretti out early, I might put karn back in after testing) and All Is Dust(which I see you run anyway) since both can be easily recurred via daretti, Past in Flames or Recoup .
How is Clock of Omens feeling to you? It seems pretty situational and while it can be used for ramp I haven't found it to be effective most of the time.
Contagion Engine is awesome for a one sided board wipe, but I wonder if the slot wouldn't be better for a 2 mana rock allowing daretti to come out a turn early and start +2ing? The same could be said for Tormenting Voice substitutin Fellwar Stone and/or Thought Vessel(or one of the rituals).
Lastly I would say Mirrorworks and Mindslaver are great but situational.The mirror plays better the sooner it comes out but later on it can be kind of meh. Mindslaver is obviously just good with daretti but it does paint a target in 4-player, does it generally generate enough value for you to use it and still survive a potentially hostile table?
Anyways thanks for looking at my build and your suggestions. I hope mine help you out too!

I could see dropping the three more underwhelming storm cards, and the (correct me if im wrong) seemingly pointless flicker effects for better cantrips/counter producers/permanents that counter.

Thank you for the comment and suggestions, ibstudent2200!
So, first off, Darksteel Forge, Mycosynth Lattice and Nevinyrral's Disk are essentials to any Daretti, Scrap Savant deck. I'm going to break this stuff down further when I finally find the time to update the description and all that jazz, but basically I'll say each provides powerful effects on their own, in conjuncture with other cards, and yes, as a combination most of all. It basically works as a constant destruction lock. The combination isn't difficult to put together, considering the tutors and all the digging through the deck via drawing effects. So no, I would never consider removing any of those pieces. It's one of the main win-cons and the one I've probably used most to win. Just because a couple cards might not be good together in one situation doesn't mean they aren't worth inclusion if they provide a shit-ton more value in just about any other conceivable situation.
Past in Flames just took the place of Recoup because the latter doesn't hit instants. I'll have to play it enough to see if I like it anyway, because I did like Recoup. But, the way I see it, its flashback only costs one more mana, hits more targets, and provides me an easy outlet to doling out infinite damage with it + Comet Storm + my infinite mana combos. That's why I decided it's worth a shot.
However, Codex Shredder is an interesting suggestion, so thank you for that. I like that it could get me back Chandra, Flamecaller or Blood Moon. I'l have to keep that one in mind and potentially test it in the future.

Hey there, I'm not great with budget lists but I have a few cards to consider:
Mystic Speculation - always love drawing this card, so much value.
Increasing Vengeance - best spell doubler on a budget imo.
That's about all I can think of atm, hopefully it helps.
