Hey, very nice budget Locust God deck. For a first deck it looks great. I suggest concentrating on lowering the Avg CMC(average converted mana cost). For instance only these three six CMC cards: The Locust God, Consecrated Sphinx and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind should be the high end of the mana curve. You don't really need anything else with a higher mana cost.

I have a few budget suggestions:

All my suggestions other than Reef are cheap ways to draw cards, sometimes a lot of cards. Wheels: Windfall, Jace's Archivist and Whirlpool Warrior are very good with the God because you're drawing a lot of cards while also making just as many 1/1 fliers as cards you draw. Archivist is a repeatable Windfall each turn.

Faithless Looting is draw two for one mana that can flashback to draw again. Ponder filtering and draw for one mana. Mind Stone is good two mana rock because it can be sac later on to draw a card. Remora is a staple blue card for Commander it can draw you a lot of cards it's good in the early game or later on in the game when you have the God in play. Cycling lands are good with the God using a land to draw when you don't need a land, getting a 1/1 flier in return.

Good luck with your deck.

So here's a list of the cards that I got for the deck:

However, there's plenty of things I know I need, and some things I might consider (thanks to edhrec.com).Holy crap, that's a lot of cards. What I want to do right now is have Kess play the support role while I tutor up Nekusar to play. As soon as I can start nabbing the wheels for Nekusar's pain, Kess's ability will allow me to cast them back for more wheel-y fun times (for me, at least). That way, people won't realize that this is actually a Nekusar deck: he's hiding, ready to strike! But my biggest problem is discerning which of these 150+ cards I need to whittle down to about 65, and also figure out how many lands I need to play. I've got a little money to spend, and this list is about as far as I'll go cost-wise.

Hi chad,

a friend of mine plays this deck. I saw him using these cards, which you might find interesting to review:

It's a deck that plays well and doens't have to be very powerful to have lots of great times.I hope the suggestions give you some new ideas.

Have fun!

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.

Have you considered playing Whirlpool Warrior? He might be good for wheeling. Also, and I know it is a bit douchy Glistening Oil on Nekusar :)

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 ;)

Guard Gomazoa, Fog Bank, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Whirlpool Drake, Whirlpool Rider, Whirlpool Warrior, Blaze, Deprive, Venser's Journal, Kefnet's Monument, Hazoret's Monument and Inspiring Statuary
