Supplice on The Draw/Token God

I'm surprised you're not running Thought Reflection, Otherworld Atlas, or Mind Over Matter. Same with Winds of Change and Whirlpool Warrior, all are very strong in decks that seek to draw many things.

I would recommend taking a few counterspells out for more draw and ramp options. Having more cards in hand, and more mana to spend, will help ensure you greater consistency.

Recurring Insight, Flow of Ideas, and Future Sight are great on the higher-cmc end, and will put in all the work of Thought Reflection more consistently. Fact or Fiction, Rhystic Study, Day's Undoing, Thassa, God of the Sea, and Mystic Remora all put in great work on the lower end.

As for ramp, Solemn Simulacrum, Burnished Hart, Wayfarer's Bauble, Sky Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, and Fellwar Stone are all good.

What do you plan on doing when a threat actually hits the battlefield? I would think about Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, AEtherize, Wipe Away, Echoing Truth, Pongify, and Reality Shift.

There are also a few lands you might want to consider, like Terrain Generator, Strip Mine, Ghost Quarter, Myriad Landscape, Temple of the False God, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Reliquary Tower, Glacial Chasm, to name a few. You should probably add at least 5-7 more lands as it is.

can i suggest using Alhammarret's Archive instead of Thought Reflection just to lower the mana curve, and get potentially more out of it. I like the deck idea tho. if you are going for token swarming i would also recommend Goblin Rabblemaster. of course this pushes the price up a couple of dollars but it can be worth it :)

Ziembski this deck is crazy bro! Won a brutal multiplayer game last night...I had Possibility Storm, Thought Reflection, Psychosis Crawler and Arjun all in play. Cast Timetwister and then top decked Reforge the Soul with Possibility Storm then triggered Arjun's ability twice in a row to deal everyone 70 damage with the Psychosis Crawler as I drew two lots of 28 cards!! I can honestly say that is one of my best edh wins ever- major props for posting the decklist :D

It's been a long time since I've visited but here's some more suggestions:

Spellweaver Volute - Super unique card that I found recently. Two factors you'll want to consider are the high number of counterspells you have (which are essentially useless for this) and the low number of sorceries you have. I only run with 5 counterspells and my instant/sorcery ratio is closer to 1-to-1.

Spelltwine - really shocked to see this one wasn't suggested yet. 3 cast triggers in one card.

Cascading Cataracts - Another Darksteel Citadel.

Supreme Will - can serve as a counter or an Impulse, I like having options.

Cerulean Wisps - pays for itself and replaces itself.

Contested War Zone - So good news / bad news situation. The bad news is that Mirrorweave doesn't act as a board wipe in this deck like I previously thought. The copies simply become unanimated lands instead of 0/0 elementals. (Although maybe you have it for its general usefulness.) The good news is you can combo Mirrorweave with Contested War Zone if you're into this kind of trickery. The combo works by getting past an opponent's blockers, and then casting Mirrorweave targeting an animated Contested War Zone. All the defending player's creatures become a Contested War Zone and now you control them all.

Hostile Desert - Kinda "meh" but if you have lands in your GY and you want to put them to good use, here's one way. Flavorful too.

Attunement / Pursuit of Knowledge - Strong effects. Combo well with Alhammarret's Archive or Thought Reflection.

Question for you - how do you like Metallurgic Summonings in place of the creatures that share a similar "cast to get stuff" ability - Talrand, Sky Summoner and Docent of Perfection  Flip? Would you ever run all of them or would you consider it overkill?

Well if it's combos that you want, here's a few ideas... 1) Skullclamp + Ashnod's Altar combo with Locust God. 2) Intruder Alarm + Merfolk Looter (or any looter) combo with Locust God. 3) Mindmoil or Arjun, the Shifting Flame + Thought Reflection or Alhammarret's Archive grow exponentially and are a pseudo-combo with Locust God. Also Laboratory Maniac helps you auto-win with several of these by just decking yourself. Hope this helps!

good replacements:

Alhammarret's Archive for Thought Reflection cheaper mana cost and better. Guttersnipe is a great card for spellslinger deck could replace the niv's. I would say you have too many 6 drop creatures.
Young Pyromancer is good as well for some chump blockers. Jace's Sanctum is good for cost reduction and cycling through your top.

-Orvos-, thanks for the +1, I agree fully with replacing Thought Reflection with Archmage Ascension since I am trying to get the CMC down anyways. I think I will also try swapping Melek, Izzet Paragon for Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar. I used to have Inexorable Tide in here, but I found that without Mizzix on the battlefield it is kind of a dead card.
