C4rnif3X on Looking For a Card To ...

5 days ago

I can't find one, i've been searching for a long time. I'm trying to assemble a semi-game winning combo where I need to shuffle my hand into my library.

Cards such as these arn't what i'm looking for..

Time Reversal
Whirlpool Rider

I don't want my opponents to get this effect for the combo, and I can't be drawing that many cards I shuffled back with what Whirlpool Rider offers.

I'm looking for an exact effect where only you shuffle your hand into your library.

Anybody know of one in U/G colors, or an artifact with this effect?!

Ok friend here it goes...

Your deck as it sits right now seems a little confused.

Your commander's main goal is to draw cards, make insect tokens, and win the game with a swarm of bugs.

Your deck on the other hand, seems to want to play a lot of creatures, beat people up, and draw some cards along the way. Your Commander doesn't like that.(I think it's fun though, most of my edh decks goals are to punch people with a lot of creatures).

So, what I think your deck needs, is a bit of an over haul, or a change of commander. Now, I'm not sure what you budget is, the size of you collection is, how competitive you want to make this, or what you like to play, but I'm going to give a few suggestions of cards to push you in a direction for the Locust God.

So you'll want cards like Impact Tremors, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Warstorm Surge, Goblin Bombardment, and Purphoros, God of the Forge as ways to kill your opponent with out attacking with your tokens. Then cards like Favorable Winds and Gravitational Shift to win with attacking.

Now you're going to want some card draw, stuff like Reforge the Soul, Day's Undoing, Skullclamp, Bident of Thassa(there are a ton others).

Maybe creatures like Whirlpool Warrior, Chasm Skulker, and Whirlpool Rider.

Also maybe cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance,Goblin Electromancer, Spellbook, Thought Vessel and Reliquary Tower.

Sorry if this wasn't what you were looking for. The Locus God is a sweet commander period, but he can be unreal if you pull the best out of him.

Hope I helped out, let me know either way. Happy Brewing!!

Tamiyo doesn't really do anything in this deck; Play Future Sight instead of Magus, it's harder to deal with; Run counter spell instead of Hindering light, you know you'd rather counter that Wrath; Riptide Director is a worse Azami, Sage of Fables however buffs most of your dudes and allows for some interesting things; If you are gonna run Mystical tutor play an instant or sorcery worth it being in the deck for.

Cards worth adding:

not really .. i mean you can try to force it with cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Past in Flames and cheap blue cantrips ... but even with rituals, blue and or just mana quickly becomes an issue for storming in non-mizzex/Yidris decks

Arjun, the Shifting Flame decks have the advantage of Mindmoiling everytime they cast a spell and can use Psychosis Crawler, Sphinx's Tutelage and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind to ping opponents lifetotals/decks multiple times a spell even if the storm fizzles.

that being said, The Locust God shines at drawing cards, and going wide with an army of hasty fliers ...Kindred Discovery on insect is a good start and has exponential growth with Alhammarret's Archive (draw 2 cards, make 2 locust, draw 4 cards, make 4 locust .. etc, just becareful as the loop is mantatory .. so Laboratory Maniac or a way to kill people before you lose is important before you start)

and cards mentioned in the above sections combined with Chasm Skulker, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Frantic Search, Whirlpool Warrior, Brainstorm, Rhystic Study, Whirlpool Rider and other cheap "wheels" may help you get value even if your storm doesnt quite get there.

What are your targets for Mass Polymorph? Not what you are hitting what are you trying to pull out of your deck? Etherium Sculptor what are his target you have 15 artifacts but not many that cost more than 2 or three, how consistently is the the mana reduction going to count? Grand Architect I would replace with Mindwrack Liege. You already have two of the whirlpools why not add in Whirlpool Rider as well. If you are looking to kill with combat damage Coat of Arms would be good. Purphoros, God of the Forge would also be amazing in the deck. Vicious Shadowsworks really well also punishes people for board wipes and blocking.

Arjun, the Shifting Flame

Burning Inquiry

Incendiary Command

Magus of the Wheel

Desperate Ravings

Faithless Looting

Izzet Charm

Whirlpool Drake

Whirlpool Rider

Whirlpool Warrior

...and for maximum chuckles, it would be awesome to find room for Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded here. I think you can get some work out of him.
