Trophy Mage Discussion

RazortoothMtg: Honestly, I don't know why Strionic Resonator was in the list. Out it goes! I also really like Flamebreak for its mana-to-effect ratio, but it got cut for more draw ;) Thank you for the help, I appreciate it!
Skulloelegy: Glad to help! :)
n0bunga: Same to you man! Trinket Mage is now in - still looking for a slot for Trophy Mage, but she'll find her way into the list eventually! :) And Lightning Storm would be a hilarious win-con, I might have to try that.
Marcs7: Thanks! I'll definitely try to include that - Blasting Station also goes infinite with Murder of Crows (which has its own utility in the deck). If you like the deck, you're welcome to give a +1 ;)
teferiofzhalfir: Shared Animosity has been consistently fantastic in this deck haha. Nothing quite like The Locust God into Shared Animosity and Wheel of Fortune, draw 7 and swing for 49. And I'm always nervous to use Coat of Arms in case I go up against a tribal deck, but I'll look for a slot :)
Zimmers_0: It's super fun so far (though I've only goldfished so far). It isn't my strongest combo deck, but it's very fun and can explode out of nowhere.
My basic assessment is that The Locust God is extremely powerful, even moreso than it appears - but it doesn't have any inherent protection, and it's very expensive at 6 mana.
If I had the money for the "real" mana rocks like Mox Diamond and Mana Crypt I think I could make it into a major threat. Until then, it will be a janky, fun combo deck that murders people with unholy plagues of locusts MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Fantastic as always brother.
I thought of Master the Way too man that is some spiiiiiice.
Maybe some hard draw like Pull from Tomorrow?

Dude this is solid.
Purphoros seems sweet here. Goblin Bombardment could also be worth considering?
Oh! And Master the Way would be a great alt wincon as you've drawn your deck.

I see the biggest problem in the mana costs of the locust god. That's 6 mana and it won't stay in play long. Of course, you can play it again for 6 mana but you will have to play this thing and go into any sort of combo in the same turn, which requires even more mana.
You should think about how you can even survive so long and that's the deck then. If this card works at all it's probably in a shell with 20 or more counterspells ranging from 0 to a Maximum of 2 or 3 mana and a shitoad of mana artifacts (maybe with Paradoxical Outcome). I would not rely on the creatures alone though because there are numerous methods to disable these tokens or prevent them from attacking or dealing damage. Something like Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge would help.
Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar would make a three card combo with Skullclamp and the locust god. Tezzeret the Seeker , Trinket Mage, Fabricate, Trophy Mage, Intuition, Long-Term Plans, Transmute Artifact and Academy Ruins are must plays then. You'll need every GOOD tutor and there aren't too many in these colours. Of course my suggestions are not a complete list but you have to keep mana efficiency in mind.

I made a few changes due to the fact my meta is creature heavy and the deck is a little shaky against creature strategies. But its very effective and fun. Have you thought about Relic Barrier to make Winter Orb and Static Orb one sided? I put in a Trophy Mage along with Fabricate and Enlightened Tutor to search up the orbs and the Relic Barrier and it has been very consistent for me so far.

Some cards to look at: Mycosynth Golem, Spine of Ish Sah, Copper Gnomes, Lux Cannon, Trinket Mage, Treasure Mage, Trophy Mage, Training Grounds, Brainstorm, Scroll Rack, Long-Term Plans, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Lightning Greaves, Frogmite (it's a lol card), Rings of Brighthearth (with maybe Basalt Monolith if you want the whole combo), Illusionist's Bracers, Aphetto Alchemist, Clock of Omens, Voltaic Key, Scarecrone, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Show and Tell, Metalworker, Lightning Greaves, Ancient Tomb, Chrome Mox, Memnarch (Memenarch), March of the Machines, Colossus of Akros, Thran Dynamo, Duplicant, Mindslaver and Academy Ruins, Batterskull, Phyrexian Metamorph, Darksteel Juggernaut, Metalwork Colossus, Null Rod (if you're feeling cheeky), Omen Machine, Platinum Emperion, Platinum Emperion, Wurmcoil Engine. If you want a couple more combos, Muzzio isn't the best at combo-omg, but lemme know an I'll list a few more. Hope this helped!
