The Locust God Discussion

Orion93 on Favorable Wins (Flier Tribal Aggro)

Why not go with some Sphinx cards? Or if you wanted you could try splashing red for The Locust God. Drop in 4 Aether Hubs and maybe a couple Shielded Aether Thiefs. Then just a ton of draw spells at instant speed. Glimmer of Genius being the best.

But you could make a bunch of 2/2 insect tokens and if you only run 1 or 2 of the god then there's not a big chance of having to worry about that red mana too often.

amazingronaldo on Nekusar and Tutoring

I am looking to bring back a different version of my Nekusar deck, however I loved the idea of The Locust God and The Scarab God as commanders and found in both I was looking for Wheel of Fortune effects which work well for both. So, I thought I could do hidden commanders being the gods with Nekusar as commander for the Grixis colors which I would need. I've loaded up with about 9 or 10 wheel effects and maybe 7-8 draw effects. My question is, should I, or would you, bother with tutors? I should be drawing into removal or counters I would think but there is nothing like being able to tutor for the exact answer you need. But I could use the 3 slots for other things. Thoughts?

Thanks muchly! I like Chasm Skulker as a back up token/sacrifice generator for Ashnod's Altar to pay X into a burn or draw spell if The Locust God is offline. I completely agree that it's not a great attacker :)

Consider Slate of Ancestry added as soon as I get one - super suggestion & greatly appreciated.

I like Omniscience but I only think I have room for one dumb blue spell and Enter the Infinite draws me my whole deck which is all it really needs to do, if The Locust God is on the field thats game, if he is not(probably would not cast it) there are plenty of cards in the deck to generate enough mana to play enough cards that if I cant win on that turn I already lost.

I love Nekusar. I had a Nekusar deck for a long time Fort Nekusar. Mine was a fort and control deck and Nekusar was the win-con with Helm of the Ghastlord and Elder Mastery as my mean enchantments to add to player's misery lol.

+1 from me. :)

Lately I have been trying to think of a new iteration of Nekusar, this one being more centered around The Locust God and The Scarab God as my real commanders. I had them as commanders in separate decks but really think the wheel effects work great for the goals of either commander, and I could find other parts of each that could work for the other commander.

Good luck with yours and it sounds like you enjoy playing it.

When Primal Wellspring  Flip copies a card with X in its casting cost it will retain the value of X from the original casting. Paired with a late game Torment of Hailfire it is a devastating combo. This will allow you to run less Torments and focus instead on playing removal and counter against your opponent.

If Price isn't an issue then I suggest either The Locust God or of course The Scarab God . Those 2 allow you to focus on stopping your opponent more which lets you play at your own pace.

Thanks for the comment and suggestions! I was thinking about Blue Sun's Zenith, but it was in a different deck of mine, but I had recently taken it apart so I guess it is time to put in the zenith. Thanks again and good luck with your The Locust God deck too!

Aetherflux Reservoir seems spicy.

Would you consider a copy of Venser's Journal to help you get to 50 life?

I'm working on a The Locust God list, as well, over at Revenge of the Nibblers.

Have fun playing your deck!
