If you can ritual, play red 1 drop, mutate drakkis onto it returning ritual, then return the creatures to hand you quickly get infinite storm count.

This offers combo lines with Banishing Knack/Retraction Helix/Blistercoil Weird, which also serve as a damage combo outlet and disruption in a pinch. Theres also the old Izzet Guildmage/Desperate Ritual/Lava Spike combo.

If you want to sypport a bit the token theme you can add Young Pyromancer, Murmuring Mystic, Docent of Perfection  Flip, Twilight Drover and maybe Sephara, Sky's Blade. As for the spellslinger theme i personnaly suggest Goblin Electromancer, Izzet Guildmage ,Ral, Storm Conduit, the new narset and Jeskai Ascendancy. For instant and sorcery other than the basics try adding spells with either flashback, jump-start or retrace.

Hey Rasaru, thanks for reaching out! If possible you should come join the PDH Discord server (here is the invite link https://discord.gg/AUUBCku). This can make for much quicker communication!

To see which commanders are the most powerful I'd point you to the Tier List. At the moment only Tier 1 is accurate. You can find good deck examples for them in the Compendium.

Obviously fun is subjective so all I can do is list some of the decks I've enjoyed playing. You can find my lists for these here.

Dual Casting , Bonus Round , Dualcaster Mage , Expansion / Explosion , Fork , Fury Storm , Increasing Vengeance , Insidious Will , Izzet Guildmage , League Guildmage , Nivix Guildmage , Reiterate and Repeated Reverberation all immediately win you the game with another instant or sorcery, Ral and your signature spell. You don't need all of these, bu adding some of the more budget-y options might be good. Most also work well with the rest of the deck. Just a thought.

Aiden_Phelps on The Locust God ~ Budget

Sure! My first order of business would be to add a few combo lines.

Ashnod's Altar is a great card alone as it can sacrifice the crap ton of locusts you have for a crap ton of mana. However, when paired with Skullclamp (which I know is already in the list), and your commander, you can skullclamp a locust, draw 2, get 2 bugs, then sac one bug to the altar for mana to get 2 mana. Use one of the mana to skullclamp the other bug. Repeat this process. Each time you do this, you draw 2 and get 1 colorless. You should now have enough draw triggers to win with Niv-Mizzet or Psychosis Crawler . Alternatively, you could discard all of those cards you just drew to a giant Firestorm to kill everyone at the table. If you have the budget, add a Phyrexian Altar because it works just like Ashnod's Altar in this scenario. Trophy Mage tutors up the altar.

Kindred Discovery naming "locusts". With your commander online, each locust that enters will draw you a card and make another locust. HOWEVER, be careful that you don't accidentally draw your whole deck with no way to terminate the loop. Luckily enough, Firestorm is an instant, so you might be able to win through that if everyone else is low enough. If they're not, cast a spell like Into the Roil or Blink of an Eye to return Kindred Discovery to your hand and stop the loop.Then you swing with 80 locusts to kill half the table or so and then Firestorm the rest.

ANY combo that produces infinite mana will let you win. you bank all of that mana into your commander's ability to loot through your whole deck and cast a Niv Mizzet or Psychosis Crawler along the way to ping your opponents to death. I've found that the best way to get around decking yourself in this situation is to discard an Eldrazi Titan like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to your commander's ability to shuffle your whole graveyard into the deck and letting you draw them all over again and make infinite locusts, but that might be too expensive and Elixir of Immortality often works, just not at instant speed, which is sometimes necessary. Infinite mana combos I'd play in this deck include Turnabout or Mana Geyser and Reiterate ; Izzet Guildmage and Mana Geyser .

Bident of Thassa / Coastal Piracy and Breath of Fury makes infinite tokens and combat steps with your commander and 2 or more locusts in play. (Seeing as you have Bident of Thassa and Breath of Fury in your deck, I'm guessing you know about that one but it's better to make sure.)

Side note: You have many ways to discard your hand and then draw that many, but not many ways of actually drawing cards. It seems like you'll be very low on cards most of the time with this deck if you don't get the right draws. Coastal Piracy would be great in this deck.

Do as you wish with all of this information. I personally would try to add as many of these as possible. Let me know if it helped you or you need an explanation for something it took a very long time to write all of this. Consider adding some of it to your description.

Nasser_inside1 Thanks for the suggestion! I originally had it in the deck, but swapped it out for a Lava Spike for the Izzet Guildmage Combo. Ive been playtesting and have a few changes lined up, and i think Shock will end up finding its way back in.
