The Locust God Discussion

Hello there. You should put Brainstorm , Guttersnipe , Chemister's Insight , Beacon Bolt , Treasure Cruise , The Locust God , Jori En, Ruin Diver , Arjun, the Shifting Flame . I think you should play spells that make you draw x cards like Blue Sun's Zenith and Pull from Tomorrow . Epic Experiment can finish a game if you have enough instants and sorceries (Maybe you can play more as they're a lot of draw in them).

So obviously this is not a legal card in any format, however it is a very real card nonetheless. It's created by Wizards and given to employees with exceptional performance.
Since it's not a real card, there are probably no rules in place for it. So, we can address this by inferring a few:
- 1.) Any creature can be your Commander. The Legendary Partner ability upgrades it to Legendary status.
- 2.) We can assume that because they have Partner, the creature in question may contain . If this is the case, your deck's identity would be .
- 3.) It doesn't say "Creature", but as of now there is no LEGAL precedent for anything other than Planeswalkers who can also be your Commander. So, we will only include Creatures and Planeswalkers. This means that any Planeswalker can also be partnered with Sol, Advocate Eternal.
There is however the issue of needing to ATTACK with the Planeswalker if that is your Partner if you'd like to get the "Teamwork" trigger. In order to do so, you'd need to either use Planeswalkers who can attack, such as Gideon and Sarkhan . However, you could also theoretically cobble together a Planeswalker who can attack by using Mycosynth Lattice and March of the Machines . You are in , so literally just tutor those cards out.
It would be very tempting to just go Atraxa, Praetors' Voice for that disgusting Support / Proliferate synergy. There's also Atarka, World Render if you want to swing for basically lethal Commander damage each turn. I mean, you'd be hitting with probably a 6/6 and an 8/4 (Assuming you Supported +2/+2 on Sol and +2/+2 on Atarka). That alone is 14 damage, but they are also going to gain doublestrike thanks to Atarka so it's actually 28 COMMANDER DAMAGE. And it puts you in WUBRG for The Ur-Dragon and Scion of the Ur-Dragon , so there's that.
I realize that each of the two Commanders have their own separate amount of damage they need to deal for it to be lethal. For example, if Sol deals 16 damage and Atarka deals 18 damage, this is not lethal "Commander Damage" as neither of them have individually dealt 21 combat damage in total. However, swinging for 28 damage on the first attack is nothing to scoff at, and they will only continue to grow. This puts all opponents on a 2-turn clock, or the game on a 6-turn clock. With cards that grant additional combat steps , you can knock a single opponent out of the game per turn. This reduces the entire game to a 3-turn clock. With access to and , I'd put in extra turn cards and basically win the game right there by virtue of brute, unrelenting force alone.
So Atarka, World Render is my go-to choice.
However, since we are Investigating and can upgrade any creature to Legendary, there is also Briarbridge Patrol who would be insanely powerful here.
There is also The Locust God . Since you are going to Investigate 4x, that's a TON of draw you are kicking out. Might as well throw down some creatures literally for free while stacking card advantage, right? For each card you draw, you create a 1/1 Insect token. Since you have 4x Clue tokens, you can use them all and create 4x 1/1s. Then when you attack with Sol and Locust, you can Support 4 and distribute them all onto the tokens, giving you 4x 2/2 flyers on top of your 4/4 Sol and your 4/4 Locust. That's a grand total of 16 flying in the air, you drew 4x cards, and now that they both attacked you get another 4x Clue tokens. An engine like that is very hard to pass up, so Locust would be a very close second for me. Probably the Commander with Atarka, World Render as a backup.
But those are just my ideas. What are your ideas? :)

I mean, I would think about switching Jori w/ the locust god,. You have such a great engine for The Locust God it's hard to resist the crazy amount of insects you would be getting.
otherwise great deck =) peace

@kamelyan thanks for the upvote and comment! I returned the favor by upvoting more of your decks!
The Locust God is one that was suggested to me by a friend as well. Are you thinking that because of the flying theme or because of the wheels or ? Just curious on people's thought process. I'm running it in my Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain deck and it's great there
Bag of Holding looks like it could go really well, or really bad if someone destroys it before you can get your cards back haha but I like where your head is at!

I have not seen Kyren Negotiations before. Since you have Mana Echoes and Phyrexian Altar , I would include Sacred Mesa ; but only because it is a pet card of mine. You should not add it -it is pretty bad. The Locust God , though, yes, definitely.
If you get a chance, could you check out my Kykar deck? They released the Bird-Wizard with Bag of Holding , so I just had to go a Wheelin'!

Hey. im played a nekusaar-deck many years ago before i transformed it to a The Locust God deck. i miss the essential "wheels", e.g. Windfall -like cards to burn people down through pure carddraw in your list...

What are you losing too?
The deck looks very solid, almost the same Nekusar deck I once had. Nekusar draws a lot of hate and is focused a lot because of his playstyle.
