Azorius Cagesmith -

Creature - Human

Whenever ~ enters the battlefield, you may exile at least two artifacts from your graveyard. Return one other artifact with CMC lower or equal to the CMC of cards exiled this way from your graveyard to your hand.


I don't know why but I want Azorius to care about CMC much more than it should in the next set.

Speaking of "recent" sets, why not design more "guild" Gods. Only Grixis was covered in Hour of Devastation. The Scarab God The Scorpion God The Locust God What about a Gruul one? It's my favourite guild. I'm a simple man, I see good creatures, I like.

Gruul god of Egypt!

Yeah, and storm is overrated IMO, trust me, there are many reasons I think that a 99 card colorless stax deck without a commander is able to compete in High Powered, not Competitive, not 'Maximum Powered,' but it is as good, relatively to almost each and every other High-Powered list I have tested out, meaning it is equal in winrate to the following lists from a set of hundreds of games against the Tier 1-2 lists:

Xira Arien Paradox Storm, Azami, Lady of Scrolls Paradox Combo-Control, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker Token-Combo, Talrand, Sky Summoner Control&Extra Turns, Gaddock Teeg Creature-Stax/Hatebears, Sliver Queen Combo, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir Lockout Combo, Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow turns, Zada, Hedron Grinder storm, Dralnu, Lich Lord Paradox Storm, Inalla, Archmage Ritualist Infinite Turn Combo, Ishkanah, Grafwidow Food Chain, Shattergang Brothers stax, Nin, the Pain Artist IsoRev Combo, Selvala, Explorer Returned Combo-Stax, Seton, Krosan Protector ElfBall/Druid Tribal, and The Locust God combo.

(And on a happy-but-not-nearly-as-happy-as-an-engagement note, my The Locust God deck is finally in the top 10 EDH decks of all time on the site! Sorry, PartyJ, for booting your list out XD this means I'm also the first person to get TWO of my decks in the top 10.)

Solo-ras In Grixis ramp is hard to come by, look at Brazen Freebooter, Sailor of Means & Dire Fleet Hoarder as ramp, a small investment letting one play more another turn. In fact I am going to test adding treasure ramp to my The Locust God deck because it has a slight issue ramping up to him reliably.

How about this, SynergyBuild? I was stated by someone to be Izzet Based, & is my prime emotion. If Jeleva can't do the idea of Instants/Sorceries right, what would my best bet for an Izzet Commander in this realm be? & no, The Locust God far from counts; it seems more draw based than whatnot...

goblinguiderevealpls on Timetwister loops

2 weeks ago

personally its the only thing missing from my cedh nekusar primer list in paper form.. having an Underworld Dreams out in a timetwister loop is very satisfying lol

but theoretically its the only power 9 card legal in edh and is thus included in a vazt majority of blue decks who can afford to run it. im sure there are a few exceptions but I've seen a timetwister in most blue cedh lists that are fully optimal

if you want to build a deck around twister i would recommend a commander that benefits from the infinite draws like Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, The Locust God, Edric, Spymaster of Trest

gregcresci: Probably Time Reversal?

FLATSO99: Thanks! :D

Masne98888: If I draw my whole deck with The Locust God on the battlefield, the targets are my opponents, their creatures, and however many Locusts I need to target. If I draw my library WITHOUT The Locust God on the field, I generally cast Winds of Change with 70+ cards in hand THEN cast Firestorm, guaranteeing that there are enough targets. That clear up the question? :)

Herald_of_Eldrazi on Nicol Bolas' annoying bag of schemes

I love the idea of this deck and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip is my favourite commander to play with! I would strongly suggest you throw in more punishment for discarding, like Bloodchief Ascension or the previously mentioned Liliana's Caress. Creature cards that synergise well here too would be Fell Specter for some more discard punishment and Magus of the Wheel as well as Jace's Archivist to force some bulk discard effects. I have a similar deck to this and have found The Locust God helps out quite a lot when you draw cards to pump out a good wall of chump blockers! Hope this help!
