I can't overstate how fun this is. Build it, play it, enjoy it.

Retooled a few cards in the sideboard that I've been meaning to update. I decided to take it less seriously and remove Stony Silence and replace them with Curse of the Swine. I also made room for Martial Coup as a board wipe and upgraded Diminish to Snakeform since it draws you a card and removes abilities. Still an amazingly fun deck to play in modern. I love every part of this deck.

I had considered other Gods for the indestructible and other keywords, but in this case the Myriarch is mostly for the size. Often, the flying alone is enough. The Manticore makes it lethal, or double lethal as in the case of multiplayer which I play often.
As far as doubling up Rashmi and As Foretold it really is an over indulgence, especially since I have Sunbirds Invocation in there as well. It works great as a form of ramp and generating a ton of value as soon as it starts gaining counters. It all works together in play a lot better than it may look on paper. As Foretold in any situation is only good if you can get it down on turn 3, and sometimes 4. It's playable in multiplayer on turn 5 because the game usually takes longer. When all three are online it's ridiculous, which is the point of this deck, and it's very fun to pull off.
I don't mind having easily sided cards in the main board and As Foretold can easily be traded for for something else. I prefer it in the 3 slot because answers to it are completely different than the 3 slot cards I would trade it for. I love playing it and having my friends go "oh boy..." because they know what's up. Makes me happy :)

That above combo is so good/reliable/valuetown that I sided Tishana to add in a second Locust God and a second Expertise, and made room for Baral's Expertise in the sideboard since it would allow me to pick up a Manticore for another trigger, or even a Virtuoso or Refiner for energy and a card or more thopters. Tishana is fine, but not as huge as when there isn't Panharmonicon which I didn't want to shove in there. Plus, siding Tishana makes the main deck list more unique from the Against the Odds Invocation deck that inspired the list. Rishkar just draws a lot more cards potentially as I seem to be "taller" rather than "wider" as long as I have a Myriarch which is whenever I need one. It is rather satisfying to hit a Myriarch from a Rashmi trigger if it is my next card or one of the next 6 cards with Invocation after casting Expertise because it gives the opponent very little time to respond. Even if I don't have a Myriarch and my biggest creature is a 2/3 I still get to draw two cards and play a 5 cost for 6 mana which is acceptable, but I'll pretty much always at least have an Invocation or a Rashmi out prior to make sure that I get 11+ mana's worth of value out of playing it.
Super fun deck to pilot, I'm having a blast with it :)

Today I played a game that had the awesome explosive ending that I've always wanted and it involved a The Locust God and Rishkar's Expertise. I don't remember the exact configuration, but basically I finally had an upkeep with a Locust God (after like four turns in a row, it kept dying...) and also had a Sunbird's Invocation and I'd been dying to play Rishkar's Expertise.
When I finally did the Invocation trigger gave me a beautifully timed Majestic Myriarch which came down as a 16/16 because I had 8 total creatures. When Expertise resolved I drew 16 cards from the size of the Myriarch which also created another 16 Insect tokens from drawing those cards and then I got to play a 5 cost card from my hand. This was a Maverick Thopterist which gave me 3 more creatures and another Invocation trigger that hit a second Myriarch.
This left me with two 56/56 flying Myriarchs with haste and a total of about 20 flying 1/1 insects with haste and some other insignificant creatures. Go to combat, kill everyone else at the table. They scooped in the middle somewhere, but it was wonderful...
