Played this deck last night, actually won a game. Had a stock deck player make the table discard our hands and draw cards, feeding The Locust God card draw trigger.

Played a few instants and sorceries where I killed off one player, kept and AEtherspouts in hand for the killing blow from the other player. He swung all in, and I nerfed the attack, ready to swing at him next turn. He scooped.

'Course, updated to dump the Hijack type spells in favor of more draw, since draw from the stock player made me overwhelming for that game.

Fun times.

@Homelessguy forgot about Anointed Procession. I do own that too. When you first mentioned adding white, I thought of Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder. Your style with Sidar Kondo of Jamuraa and going wide looks super fun. +1 for sure

@goblinguiderevealpls LOL also do you find other ppl taking advantage of the dubs?

@DrukenReaps Prossh wouldn't be easy. Either get attacks in early or expect to be controlled out

Marath looks like he/she gobbles up a lot of mana for sure. That's why I figured prossh was neat since the tokens happen even if he's Counterspelled. I have three other edh decks lead by elementals so it would be flavorful there too. I've seen your build before and it's rad. It won't let me upvote a second time ;)

@luther unique idea with the enchantment theme. I'll look through what I have. Uril, the Miststalker would be some inspiration

Ghave, Guru of Spores is cool too. I have a friend where I used to live that ran it for a while. Some of these cards we're talking about weren't even printed then and it was still real good. I have a Doran, the Siege Tower deck for my fiancee and that's where most of my abzan resources lie

@MindAblaze right? Trostani takes out some of the mess with only two colors too. One of the guys in our lgs league ran it a couple games I think. It didn't "combo out" but you'd think it had with the amount of tokens produced

@Rzepkanut you're probably right. Prossh and Marath do paint a giant target on your back. What do you think about the temur idea? I've never seen that pair before, and using Thrasios as a mana dump is very useful in a standoff. He's also like tier 1.5 tho

I am trying to avoid combos for now I think. With multiple other decks that go infinite; this will add some variety. I'll literally disassemble a combo The Locust God deck if I go temur (then maybe build izzet artifacts later with the new commander decks coming). Prossh and Marath would have combos pending Food Chain

Mono green is a new idea. Shamanic Revelation, Regal Force and friends can really keep it rolling. Baru's anthem effect catches people off guard i bet when you dump excessive amounts of lands onto the 'field. Bramble Sovereign is a new addition to the token fleet. Might be worth considering. I'm running it in my Omnath, Locus of Mana deck

Thank you so much everyone for the comments!!! So many things to consider!

Daedalus19876 on Yidris Storm

Hi! Sorry it took me a while to get back to you, my job has been super busy.

This deck is...odd (not in a bad way). I'm going to be as cutthroat as possible here, since it's listed as competitive :)

I definitely see the influence of my The Locust God deck - you chose the same counterspell suite as I did, have a similar Paradox Engine line of play, use the same rocks, etc. And yet, there are some strange choices for a competitive deck - relatively little interaction, several 4+ mana spells that do very little when they come down, and a lack of hard draw.

Nature's Lore and/or Three Visits over Kodama's Reach, Windfall over (or in addition to) Time Reversal. Cutting Mindbreak Trap for Arcane Denial, unless your meta is REALLY storm-heavy. Sylvan Library over (or in addition to) Mirri's Guile. Since you're in green, you have access to some strong mana dorks that work well with Paradox Engine (or just as early ramp), particularly Birds of Paradise and Bloom Tender. I'd personally argue for Bear Umbra over Nature's Will, since it also protects the creature in question, but it sorta depends on the amount of exiling removal in your meta. You're not running Necropotence, and you should fix that. I would almost certainly run Dramatic Reversal/Isochron Scepter in here - each half is really good alone, and it gives you an infinite storm count together. In terms of removal, Nature's Claim is the biggest thing I feel you're missing, since you have very little interaction to deal with hate pieces that you go up against. An argument could be made for adding Deadeye Navigator to pair with your Palinchron/Peregrine Drake, and cards like Tooth and Nail/Defense of the Heart to find them, but I don't feel that's a great use of slots in the current list. Jace's Archivist is far better than Arcanis the Omnipotent in this deck.

My first cuts would absolutely be any card at CMC 5 or greater, unless it essentially immediately wins you the game. I would remove Berserkers' Onslaught, Consuming Aberration, Peregrine Drake, Treachery, and Arcanis the Omnipotent immediately.

If I may ask, why use Yidris for this if you could use something like Kess in the command zone instead? It seems like you aren't doing too much with green in the deck, and relying on connecting with Yidris seems...unreliable. In a competitive deck, you'd want to be winning on T4 most games, which makes casting Yidris at that point a bad proposition (especially since most strong mana rocks can't help you cast him, given that his mana cost involves no colorless mana).

I hope this helps as a preliminary look! I can come back and offer more thoughts when I have a few more minutes to think about it :)

Cathartic Reunion would be a good replacement for Wild Guess, It's easier to trigger and fits the discard-draw theme.

If you're looking for good card draw, try Distant Melody or Keep Watch.

I personally enjoy using Inner Fire along with Battle Hymn for tonnes of mana before ~killing~ the other players.

If you want to use The Locust God to your advantage, you might wanna attempt using Purphoros, God of the Forge and Impact Tremors.

A nice infinite combo that I run is Skullclamp and Ashnod's Altar, Sac 1 insect to Ashnod's, use 1 mana to make 2 locusts and draw 2, continue this cycle to obtain as much mana as there are (cards in your deck)/2

Arjun, the Shifting Flame might be worth an include as well as Magus of the Wheel. Spellbook is nice because it's 0 mana, but Venser's Journal might be worthwhile as the lifegain stacks up pretty quickly. Helm of the Host is pretty funny with The Locust God too.

The Locust God + Windreader Sphinx could possibly work well together if you could get to them with Psychic Corrosion on the field. I played with the Sphinx at prerelease and it wasn't bad, but not sure how well it would fair in constructed.

I am pondering building a mill deck also. I am considering blue/red to play The Locust God. It would be great to come up with a viable mill deck for fun times at FNM.
