Gandolfini on Tandem Lookout and Mortarpod- Card ...

Thanks Gidgetimer, Hopefully Wizards fixes the Magic Online bug with Tandem Lookout and the token soon so I can test my deck. :)

Gandolfini on Tandem Lookout and Mortarpod- Card ...

1 week ago

I believe I found a bug in Magic Online which I reported. I soulbonded/ paired a Tandem Lookout to a germ token that had an attached Mortarpod. I sacrificed the germ token to deal 1 damage to an opponent, but the card draw ability did not trigger. However, When I then paired a nontoken creature to Tandem Lookout and subsequently sacrificed that creature using Mortarpod, the draw ability triggered correctly.My understanding is that you should always get the card draw based on the "last known information" rule.

I tested it a little and found that Tandem Lookout was better than Ophidian Eye

DrukenReaps on Niv-Mizzet Drawgons

So you already have curiosity so I would assume you are ok with comboing off and would highly recommend adding Ophidian Eye. One I literally just learned about from


is Tandem Lookout which also works for the combo. That should be plenty of redundancy for that combo.

One thing I've done to hold off my friend's nivy-wizzy is play Orbs of Warding which also hurts The Locust God. You may never see anything like it but I'd recommend having a little more artifact removal.

Some other great inclusions: Psychosis Crawler, Arjun, the Shifting Flame, Fateful Showdown, Laboratory Maniac, Dragon Mage, and Enter the Infinite.

Commander's Sphere is another, albeit smaller, form of ramp/draw, and if you're in a The Locust God deck, then maybe include the other popular draw commanders, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius. With those, you'd be netting 1 damage, 1 card, and 1 token if you have The Locust God out! There are also quite a few combos with them, such as Curiosity, Tandem Lookout, Ophidian Eye and Mind Over Matter. Though it should be noted that these combos only work infinitely with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind as far as I can tell!

Gattison on Thermo-Lookout Delver Burn

as heretical a suggestion as this may seem, I would consider dropping Delver and adding something like Artful Dodge so you can swing with Tandem Lookout as well.

Also, I just did a bunch of reading on Gush, if you didn't know, you can do this:

tap 2 islands, float two blue
bounce 2 islands to alternate cast Gush. draw +2
use a floating blue to cast Brainstorm. draw +3, putting the islands you bounced on top of library
crack Evolving Wilds shuffle away those islands, and draw something random next time.

5 cards. one mana, and you have a blue mana STILL floating... that's why Gush is banned in Legacy. =) have fun

Have you given any thought on including Laboratory Maniac as a extra win con or it could be a instant win with Tandem Lookout. Looks like a verry solid budget list. +1

Ophidian Eye, Mind Over Matter, and Tandem Lookout all combo off with Niv. Other than that I don't know.
