The Locust God Discussion

Also, a lot of people REALLY like Mana Echoes with The Locust God. I think with Mana Echoes, The Locust God and Skullclamp in play you can make infinite mana and infinite creatures... plus draw out your whole deck.

Great primer! It was really helpful for me starting my own The Locust God list (the description is very much a WIP so disregard that if you check it out).

What do you think about Whir of Invention instead of Trinket Mage? It can find either Skullclamp or Ashnod's Altar or Alhammarret's Archive all at instant speed. It gets even better if you're running cost reduction cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance but it seems good without that too.

So I've been toying with the idea of building The Locust God as a commander for a while now (along with everybody else). I'm trying to figure out a good win condition but part of me just wants to generate a bunch of locusts and then play Flame Fusillade with Paradox Engine and go to town. Thoughts?

It kind of sounds like your meta is already there, considering things like FC Prossh.

Personally, I've been liking the look of Sidisi, Brood Tyrant into Nooze combo. There's also Thrasios, Triton Hero + Vial Smasher the Fierce as a storm combo build which looks fun. That or Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder. I've also recently been looking at The Locust God as he generates creatures just from drawing cards. You could also tweak your Sisay deck into a Paradox Engine combo deck if you wanted.

It ultimately comes down to how you like to play magic.

Hey izzet_lab love the artifact approach to The Locust God have a few spells that could perhaps slot better Pull from Tomorrow over Stroke of Genius, and Brainstorm over Concentrate all in all though I like it. Wouldn't mind it if you took a look at my build The Card Advantage God

It s a good deck, for make it better than now you could put inside the true Wheel, Wheel of Fortune and other cards like Lazav, Dimir Mastermind.You could change Szadek for Lazav and in the deck The Locust God Could be really dangerous.

I'm considering pulling Mox Opal from my Avacyn, the Purifier  Flip list and putting it in The Locust God. In a deck somewhat relying on Paradox Engine as a win-con, I feel it's more relevant and necessary. Thoughts?

RowdyMagic18 on can't pick a commander

I love the new The Locust God, I think it would be a very fun choice to build around. However if you want more possible choices, I went through and found all the possible options for RU Commanders other then the ones that you have listed.

Nin, the Pain Artist

Jori En, Ruin Diver

Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist

Mizzix of the Izmagnus

Tibor and Lumia

Keranos, God of Storms

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus

Arjun, the Shifting Flame

Melek, Izzet Paragon

Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind

If you need more help on choosing a commander for your deck, or help building around your commander, I recommend you checking out Tolarian Community College's videos on commander decks, I've found his videos to be very helpful.

Also remember, building a commander deck is all about building around a commander that you love playing.

Hope this helps
