Austin_Smith_of_Cards That's not exactly what was expressed. The idea is to dredge at the beginning of Turn 2, as we would have discarded our hand to Phantasmagorian. Suppose we've something like Nether Traitor in hand, and we organize our discard so that it's in its proper spot to reanimate, and we have a Golgari Grave-Troll to dredge our draw step. This potentially dredges the Narcos and Amalgams, as well as our flashback cards. At this point, at Bridge from Below will be in the yard, so we've sent Narcos to the battlefield, which trigger the Amalgams, but the idea here is to use the tokens produced with the copy(or copies) of the enchantment to flashback Dread Return targeting Balustrade to mill the deck. Now all 4 enchantments are in the grave, meaning 1 instance of sacrifice = 4 tokens. So 1/4 Narcomoebas make 4 Zombie tokens which can be used for Flayer of the Hatebound as our primary wincon.
To answer your question - you don't, technically. But they deal 12 on impact at the beginning of your end step with Flayer in play. To protect you from milling to death Whirlpool Rider was in this list, and now I don't know what happened to it, lol. I think I was testing Ashen Rider as another strong target to reanimate.

Okay, all the following can go as they are either too expensive or not instants or sorceries. You need to focus on Niv's strengths if you are going to win even casual games ;)

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..
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.
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:
- Idyllic Tutor: Commerce is VITAL to this deck.
- Some form of graveyard recursion: COMMERCE IS VITAL TO THIS DECK!
- More Counter Magic: Your playing blue, so play blue
- Swords to Plowshares/Path to Exile/Afterlife: instant speed spot removal
- Quarantine Field/Oblivion Ring/Journey to Nowhere: Because removal.
- Whirlpool Rider
- Aether Vial
- Return to Dust
- Sensei's Divining Top
- Aquitect's Will
