U/R control deck with The Locust God as a prime animal.

Primary goal of the deck is to counter opponent until you produce enough mana to cast The Locust God and be able to produce insects.

Some Deck Mechanics

  1. Enigma Drake is more powerful every time you counter
  2. Baral, Chief of Compliance helps you counter opponents spells more efficiently
  3. The Locust God will produce insect tokens every time you draw a card


Updates Add

As Ixalan pre-release week started I modified the deck with the new cards from the set. In addition to that lowered the amount of cards in the deck to 60. Deck now has a good portion of removal and control and no longer utilizes energy.
