On my Locust Deck I set up 3 possible win conditions, depending on the deck you're facing of:
2- control/direct damage. We assume we cannot attack for some reason or we must just stop some threatening creature Opposition, Shivan Harvest, Goblin Bombardment, Kyren Negotiations, Psychosis Crawler, Throne of the God-Pharaoh, Impact Tremors, and our beloved Purphoros, God of the Forge. In most of the cases we draw to create locust that will be used as gun-powder
3- Win by MILL. Yes. Here we can use two very understimated cards which are Sphinx's Tutelage and Altar of the Brood. The Altar is sick in this deck because everytime you draw, every enemy will mill the same. Make a Wheel of 7? they also mill 7 [and you have the locust BTW]. Altar of the Brood and Fascination act the same. If you sac your locusts to an Ashnod's Altar, you can draw-kill someone with a Stroke of Genius or the like.What about killing one opponent with 10 locusts pumped by shared animosity and then sac to Altar of Dementia to insta-mill another opponent? LOL.
anyway, that's my deck built on a relative budjet plus the cards I already had

Teleportal, Magmatic Chasm, Falter, Mark for Death, Seismic Stomp, and Tectonic Rift all muddle up your opponent's non-fliers. All star Bedlam could make or break the game, a more one-sided option is Goblin War Drums, Raging River, and War Cadence.
Look into some shroud and hexproof options, as you won't be targeting your creatures with anything, so making sure they don't get removed is important.

Cut Jin, Melek and Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius. You generally need a good reason to cast creatures with a similar CMC as your commander, and these either don't provide enough of a reason or are simply too expensive (you could just draw 10 cards immediately instead of playing Jin and drawing a massive amount of hate). Both Deserts are subpar and are probably better off being another Mountain and Academy Ruins. Whispers of the Muse and Accelerate are, to be blunt, terrible and should go. For more red, mix in Teleportal, Bedlam Reveler, Nivix Guildmage and Young Pyromancer.

There is a little stack of cards in this deck that I would most certainly cut;
Also I'm not a fan of the Equipments and any of the creature-based cards in this deck, as the Izzet guild's strongest point is spells.So cut Teleportal, Assault Strobe, Psychotic Fury, Fury Charm, Curiosity, Pemmin's Aura, Basilisk Collar, Gorgon's Head, Neko-Te, Lightning Greaves...
Also, these cards I don't think fit the deck very well.-Dark Depths.
-Grafdigger's Cage!!! You should NOT play this card. It blocks out Melek and isn't of much use.
The rest of the cutting you'll have to do in the burn package. Hope I helped, please check out my thopter deck:THOPTERS!!!!! .

Pretty cool deck! However, I'd advise against combat tricks like Distortion Strike or Brute Force. Those generally aren't worth it in commander as their impact just isn't big enough. I'd look into cards that buff all your creatures, like Flying Crane Technique, or overload spells, such as (a personal favorite) Teleportal. I'd also advise you to look up some other decks on tapped out to get ideas; commanders like Mizzix of the Izmagus make for potent Izzet spell-based commanders.
Also, you might want to invest in your manabase a bit. Commander 2016 had quite a few dual land reprints that made them rather affordable, and the shadowlands (Port Town) and battlelands (Prairie Stream) aren't that expensive either.
Also, I'm a bit confused about your inclusion of Divine Presence. Quite a few of your creatures are already at or above three power before prowess.
Finally, I'd like to add that not including Kiln Fiend is hardly justifiable. It's even somewhat modern playable, for Bolas' sake ;)

For sure. Best album ever made imo!
Thanks for the suggestions man. Mizzium Mortars looks like it could find a place in here. Teleportal looks good too although I am dropping the goblins. I really wanted him in here but after looking at my spells he won't effect most of them.
Nice to find another Nas/Magic fan out there!
