Hey, if playing wheel effects then Narset, Parter of Veils preventing your opponents from drawing, but you still draw is busted. Windfall is another wheel and Jace's Archivist can be a repeatable Windfall. Whirlpool Warrior is two wheels.

Brainstorm , Ponder , Izzet Charm , Frantic Search are all good budget low mana cost draw. Talisman of Creativity and Izzet Signet are budget two drop Izzet mana rocks. If you enchant Niv with Curiosity or Ophidian Eye and then draw a card it creates a loop, an infinite combo, that draws your deck and kills your opponents. Good luck with your deck.

w3ncy Artifact Mutation is a really interesting bit of tech that I hadn't considered before. If I were to run it, I'd probably cut Dack Fayden , but that card is a bit of a pet card for me.

Ad Nauseam used to be in the list, but I eventually cut it, mostly when Paradox Engine got banned and a number of cards like Cabal Ritual became much weaker. The deck runs a LOT of win cons and a very high number of powerful tutors. Part of the reason I like running the Laboratory Maniac and Spellseeker combination is because it makes it much safer to cast Demonic Consultation as an extremely powerful (albeit risky) tutor than if I were just running Jace, Wielder of Mysteries alone. With that in mind, Ad Nauseam is more overkill in this deck than it is in other decks. As a meta note: because of the recent printing of several powerful counterspells (and Narset's Reversal ) and because much of the meta surrounds powerful, game ending instants ( Flash , Demonic Consultation , Ad Nauseam , and to a lesser extent Divergent Transformations ), most metas are going to shift to include more low-cost instant hate. Ad Nauseam without Angel's Grace is only strong between turns 3 and 4 and gets noticeably weaker as the game grinds on, unlike Demonic Consultation or Divergent Transformations . So you can't really wait for the perfect moment to cast Ad Nauseam . That said, I would still recommend testing Ad Nauseam in a Notion Thief and Whirlpool Warrior based version, because of the cute synergy between Whirlpool Warrior and Ad Nauseam .

Still, if Whirlpool Warrior and Notion Thief isn't up your ally, you could try Godo, Bandit Warlord and Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir . Godo would search for Helm of the Host . The problem with this combination is that you're devoting three slots of your deck to largely worthless cards. Not to mention the high cost to equip the helm.

A much better alternative is Tidespout Tyrant and Trinket Mage . Have the tyrant search for Mana Crypt , bounce Trinket Mage and go to town.

w3ncy Notion Thief and Whirlpool Warrior is a great combination, too. Keep in mind, if you plan on using that as your win condition, you will also want Narset, Parter of Veils , Windfall , Wheel of Fortune , and most unfortunately Timetwister . Because I don't like to use proxies, I avoid using that combination because Timetwister makes it much more powerful.

My wife's deck is a locust god deck. Need to update the tapped out deck but a couple cheap cards that are crazy good are Whirlpool Rider and Whirlpool Warrior . They are such a cheap way to go through your deck. The bigger your hand when you start the better they are.

Whir of Invention , Whirlpool Warrior , and Fabricate have all been added with Niblis of Frost , Arcane Denial , and Wee Dragonauts have been removed. Almost there. Just need the expensive mana rocks and volcanic island left.

Hey, to really speed your deck up you're going to unfortunately have to spend more money on better mana rocks and lands. That being said here's some budget options to help to improve your deck.

Cards to consider adding:

If you like some of these suggestions then I offer help to make cuts. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice start, but The Locust God is fueled by mass draw spells and I don't see very many here.

Archivist is good and his ability is called a wheel. You'll hear this term a lot in Commander and what it means is all players or just you shuffle some number of cards from hands and/or graveyard into library and then draw cards. This effect is very good with Locust because he triggers for each single draw therefore if you draw seven cards you make seven 1/1 Insects. Drawing seven of more cards from casting one card is very good.

Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Expedite
  • Browbeat
  • Flame Fusillade
  • Renegade Tactics
  • Rile
  • Slip Through Space
  • Warlord's Fury
  • Dual Casting
  • Curiosity
  • Jalira, Master Polymorphist
  • Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer
  • Rummaging Goblin
  • Epic Experiment
  • Mechanized Production

Good luck with your deck.

Have you considered the Divergent Transformations line into Notion Thief and Whirlpool Warrior ? It would require minor modifications, but might fit here.
