The Locust God Discussion

I wanted to build a Mutate Animar, which is what led me to here, especially since I found out how inexpensive the showcase versions were. I'm focusing more on a draw-based version though. Including things like Chasm Skulker, Oneirophage, Toothy, Imaginary Friend and even The Locust God.

firstmanx thank you for your comment! To your suggestions: Soul's Fire and Gravitic Punch:I don't think that i will include some more fling type effects because it is not the main plan. Also those cards do not deal commander damage only regular damage!! :D But soul's fire is a option because it is instant speed and any target.

Library of Leng: seems a good option for this deck. Getting to decide which cards i still want to hold on could be very crucial. This card will go in this deck!

The Locust God, Ominous Seas and Chasm Skulker: those seems like another good option for some payoffs. I think the other options will not make it because i need to pay extra mana for the payoffs.

And last Alhammarret's Archive: I totally forgot about this card and i will to find space for it. Also the new card of M21 Teferi's Ageless Insight is great for this deck :D

Hey, dude (or girl), nice deck! I just want to know, how many people got to this point because MagicalHacker's infinite combos list spelled The Locust God wrong??

Also. This deck could use some wheels to make lots of lotuses.

casual_competitive was just laughing at this yesterday... And the person in our playgroup who makes his The Locust God go to the command zone rather than give me a Lazav copy is now well and truly screwed. Muwahahaha!

Interesting changes, and I have a few thoughts. Firstly, I would say that while Thing in the Ice  Flip is a great card here, I’m not quite as keen on Whelming Wave. I can see how it works as a finisher, but it may set you back too far if you play it as a stalling card. Thing is probably enough in my mind. Secondly, I have a number of possible suggestions, but they may each lend better to taking the deck in different directions:

  • Since your graveyard is likely to be very large with all the discarding, something like Treasure Cruise might be a really nice include, since you largely lack other interaction with all of those cards.

  • Again, with all the discarding that you’re doing, Bag of Holding might be another nice way of holding onto your cards for later use.

  • Glint-Horn Buccaneer is another decent payoff for all the discarding, but this might move you away from the game plan of all the sea creatures.

  • Drake Haven is the last discard themed card I’d recommend, since the drakes it makes can be a very strong aerial threat very quickly.

  • If we focus more on the drawing cards side, something like Nadir Kraken could also be nice, and fits within the sea creature theme.

  • Perhaps too expensive, but The Locust God could potentially be an amazing game winning card in this deck, but six mana may be too much.

  • Channeled Force seems like it could be absurd whichever way the deck ends up leaning if you’re willing to pitch your hand to it.

  • And finally, as you will hopefully have a graveyard filled with spells, Blitz of the Thunder-Raptor might be a better removal spell.

I know this is a lot, and much of this will not interest you to play around. I just hope that this has given you some more ideas of what to do with the deck, and I wish you luck with it.
