PookandPie: Exactly! With that being said, though, I swapped Snapback for Cyclonic Rift (couldn't resist), which can't bounce TLG in the Kindred Discovery combo. That means that I need to win with Firestorm or end the combo with Stifle (luckily, by that point I have counter backup, and Mission Briefing lets me get my solutions back if they're in GY).

Because if he drew his library to enable Firestorm, then he should have Locust God out, which produces tokens = to the number of cards drawn. So you draw until 1 card is left in the library with 1 draw trigger on stack, cast Firestorm, discard 40 targeting opponents and 37~ insect tokens when you should have like 80 tokens anyway. If Firestorm resolves, great, you win. In the event of Kindred Discovery, he has to either break the loop or win at instant speed.

The alternative is to use Snapback to bounce Locust God when the last trigger is on the stack with 2 cards left in the library, then cast enough fast mana to play Ashnod's Altar, sac more insect tokens to play Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal on it, which would then let him play Locust God, activate his ability and draw the last card, discard Kozilek, and then keep reshuffling the library and drawing to attack with an infinite number of tokens.

There's probably more, but these are the more common routes I use when Kindred Discovery is out.

Our permanents are sacrifice-able so, can be destroyed by cards that don't target the player like Cataclysm Braids, Cabal Minion, Crack the Earth, a suspended Curse of the Cabal or Living End, or Keldon Twilight.

It seems that the Phyrexian Revokers can be killed with Outbreak. However, Sickening Shoal and Snapback cannot be played if Mycosynth Lattice is on the table.

JetSteel: I'm glad you like the deck :) I actually don't run Snapback anymore, but the same principle applies with Stifle and Firestorm, my termination methods of choice. I've never had major problems getting them to resolve, since I'm running Force of Will and Pact of Negation, and if I hold up mana before doing the combo I have many other counterspells I could use. (That being said, I HAVE died when doing this by forgetting a Ruric Thar is on the battlefield!)

Nice deck.The Locust God is my favourite deck to play. Have you ever had any issues with Snapback being countered when Kindred Discovery combo is happening? I am thinking about adding Foil to my deck to avoid.

CheatingLefty: Honestly, I really liked Snapback here, but it eventually got cut for Transmute Artifact, which has been INSANE (sped the whole deck up by almost a turn).

And Mission Briefing is BONKERS, I love it. I opened on in the prerelease last night, and it fits right in here (over the slot formerly occupied by Personal Tutor).

Thank you for what you do for the great ! Your deck has been an inspiration to me for a while and now I am finally getting around to building TLG now that I dismantled Nekusar.

With the new set, what are your thoughts on Mission Briefing ? Additionally I see you took out Snapback. Was this due to already having Stifle and means of recurring it?
