The Locust God Discussion

Well why not add in Nicol Bolas and Cruel Ultimatum for the Bolas theme? You could also add in more Bolas minions like The Scarab God, The Locust God, and The Scorpion God.

Hmmm. I only play EDH these days, but my current favorite deck is still my The Locust God build :) Beyond that, I'm currently spending a lot of time messing around with my Elenda, the Dusk Rose list!

Kindred Discovery is a draw engine with Locust God.

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!

If you absolutely must be running some sort of big thing like Keranos, God of Storms, I'd suggest 2x of Storms and 2x The Locust God.

This way, you cut down on a cluttered hand from being unable to cast multiple copies of Legendary Creatures, and you get the benefit of Storm's draw / burn ability but also net yourself some 1/1 flyers as you kick into gear.

@tridentseven693 I've just realized this deck has nothing vs gpg maybe some Crook of Condemnation, The Locust God might not be a bad idea Search for Azcanta  Flip will help you go through your deck. Sorcerous Spyglass for approach decks. Maybe a Primal Amulet  Flip idk. Nissa, Vital Force might not be bad but I think Nissa, Steward of Elements is better. I'll definately be playing around with this. +1 upvote, and featured on the site. Keep up the good work!

magicsheep on Pirates life for me

One of the best guards for pirates is Dire Fleet Poisoner, which can change the course of a game in a flash. Also, Forerunner of the Coalition is good for pirates, as it allows you to tutor up the cards you need. Also, Warkite Marauder can be very, very annoying to play against, so I recommend its addition. 4 Duress is a lot, so I recommend removing one. You should replace it with Hour of Glory, which can exile creatures such as The Scarab God, The Locust God, and The Scorpion God. (Also, if you want it, The Scarab God could have a home in this deck, making all of your creatures bigger and giving them a second life.) Great job gearsinabox!

Great deck hcp78! Although you are trying to keep it cheap, I recommend that you add at least 1 Baral, Chief of Compliance and The Locust God. The former helps make all your spells cheaper and the latter can generate a large supply of tokens if needed. However, these are expensive. Cryptic Serpent is a cheap, bulk card that can be low mana cost. Torrential Gearhulk is medium priced, but can generate tons of card value.
