The Locust God

The Locust God

Legendary Creature — God


Whenever you draw a card, create a 1/1 blue and red Insect creature token with flying and haste.

: Draw a card, then discard a card.

When The Locust God dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield), return it to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.

IKavalier. I think the point of Firestorm is when you draw your deck with The Locust God out, you will in turn make infinite tokens (depending on the combo) to use as legal targets.

Check out Kindred Discovery , it goes infinite with The Locust God . Hullbreacher is also a super good card in almost every competitive blue edh deck. Also, a newer wheel that in my opinion is one of the best for this deck is Wheel of Misfortune .

....Mcat1999 while I enjoy a good word soup then and again, that is absolutely wild. I intended on making a card on the previous "Create a planeswalker for a hero or mentor" but ended up getting a case of the fuckets. HOWEVER - yesterday evening, I bore witness to the majesty of Veyran, Voice of Duality on the Commander's Quarters bout of Strixhaven.

Firstly, my god, the timing. I JUST had the thought three days ago about a new Izzet spell slinger deck to replace my current The Locust God wheels deck. Boy, does Veyran scratch that itch. So, as such, time to scratch the surface of a new spell slingin' card I'd like to be in this dream of a deck!

Balance of Duality


Whenever you cast a Red Instant or Sorcery spell, you may draw X, where X is the amount of damage dealt by Blue Spells this turn.

Whenever you cast a Blue Instant or Sorcery spell, you may deal X damage to target creature, where X is the number of cards drawn this turn.

"On one hand, he does show great apititude for magic; On the other one, however, half of our library is on fire."

Create a card for the new Commander precons that you'd like to see in them! #HYPE!

How do you want to win with this deck? Cards like Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Psychosis Crawler just hurt people. The Locust God creates a giant pile of tokens.

Also, if you haven't already, think about cards like Chromatic Star and Chromatic Sphere that replace their card and mana investment.

Ponder might not be a bad idea and I have a few of them, Gitaxian Probe is also decent for knowing when to save a counter spell and I think I have one of those as well. Three Wishes is a really interesting card that I think would be a lot more fun in commander; I have a couple. Frantic Search might also be decent if you don't like what's in your hand. Cyclonic Rift is also really good and despite it being expensive I'm pretty sure we own one. Talrand, Sky Summoner is also a classic for this kind of deck, and there's also Murmuring Mystic . One of my favs that I think would work really well is The Locust God . Jace's Archivist is really interesting as well and can help you if you're top decking and hurt everyone else, another great option for the same thing is Whispering Madness . Torrential Gearhulk might be slightly pricey but he matches well with what you're doing. Lim-Dul's Vault is also super handy and can be pretty zaney especially for it being cheap. Disallow is pretty crazy too for blocking activated abilities. Bolas's Citadel is also worth looking at. Cursed Totem is really expensive but would also be CRAZY in this deck. Also check out Propaganda .

As far as removal goes, Go for the Throat is always a good option.There's also Slaughter Pact and Force of Despair . Preemptive removal like Sadistic Sacrament would be a great idea as well. Decree of Pain is good but it's mana cost is kind of high; Life's Finale is an equally viable card. Unsommon is super cheap, Boomerang , Undo , Snap , do more or less the same thing.

muddbones Hmmm, might you play a god of some sort? Maybe The Locust God ?!

plakjekaas on Pattern of deck Pool?

My decks tend to have a pattern of meiosis. I started out building a few two-color decks, but in time, I ended up splitting the colors, each half of the deck growing out to their individual outspoken parts.

What started as a Mina and Denn, Wildborn landfall deck, became on one hand a mono green landfall deck with Rhonas the Indomitable in charge, which very recently changed into Omnath, Locus of Mana big green ramp. On the other hand, the red half melded into Etali, Primal Storm big red, big burn deck, that's now helmed by Kumano, Master Yamabushi .

My Athreos, God of Passage aristocrats deck split into Rankle, Master of Pranks and Heliod, God of the Sun the same way, and my The Locust God deck split into Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and a mono blue deck, now led by Naru Meha, Master Wizard .

Out of the 13 decks I currently have, 8 of them are monocolored and one of them is colorless. The multicolored decks that remain, are held together by synergies that demand more than one, like Boros equipments ( Akiri, Line-Slinger + Arden, Intrepid Archaeologist ) , Jund Sacrifice ( Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire ), Temur Landfall Omnath, Locus of the Roil and 5C Shrines (Golos, by lack of inspiration). But now that I have two different Omnath decks, I have an itch to build the other two Omnaths as well. That's pretty much how my patterns keep changing, a new line connecting current decks usually leads to inspiration to build the next.

I do notice my developed preference for monocolored decks, but I don't feel hindered by this way of thinking. I like leaning into it, finding cool ways within the limits of the color, to make the decks suprising anyway, to make them as interesting as can be for me to play.
