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

Damn has white in it so its not legal for your color identity.
Have you considered Liliana's Caress or Peer into the Abyss? Each works as a double punch with Jace's Archivist. Other cards for 2 card combos to consider are Curiosity to go with Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Symmetry Matrix to go with The Locust God.
Another alternate win card to Consider would be Triskaidekaphile. Not only will you have another no maximum hand size card, but the activated ability can work as a late game mana sink.
Considering all the discard, may I also recommend artifacts that shuffle your graveyard back into your library? This includes, but is not limited to, Campfire, Cranial Archive and Elixir of Immortality.
I hope these help. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

The Locust God as a Polymorph deck would be a spectacle for starters

Thank you for your suggestions. really interesting stuff!
@DreadKhan: i didn't know about the transmute mechanic, so i will def. swap Dizzy Spell for Fabricate as it is much more budget friendly (even tho i was excited about having a reason to get that admech artwork card). great advice! Shadowspear and Resurrection Orb would be a great additions but both are too costly for my thin wallet ;)
@carpecanum: Toralf, God of Fury Flip is a great addition! i just had to made room for him, so i took Burn Down the House out even tho it hurts a little to loose a sorcery in this deck. Interestingly, reading the ruletext closely, i don't even have to be the one dealing the damage to make him trigger, right? I would love to add Wojek Embermage but i really don't know which card i should cut then? maybe The Locust God and say completely goodbye to the 1/1 token subtheme?
TheoryCrafter on Brother's War Spoilers

My thoughts on the Brothers' War:
One of the things going into this set I was concerned about was how they were going to take Pre and Post Mending Power levels into account without making it overpowered compared to the more recent sets. From what I've seen they seem to have done an alright Job. Urza, Planeswalker Meld Meld is overpowered, but the Meld requirement makes enough sense of both design and flavor.
Cards like Teferi, Temporal Pilgrim, The Temporal Anchor, and Saheeli, Filigree Master are set in the present so the post Mending Power levels apply. I think the newest Teferi is a bit underrated. If you're looking to make him look formidable, Teferi's Ageless Insight in non-standard formats is your best bet. Combine this with Jace's Archivist or another draw engine and let the shenanigans begin.
The whole flavor seems to imply that yes, All these cards are powerful, but the power level displays raw power over refined skill. The best example is One with the Multiverse. While it is cheaper than Omniscience, manawise, and let's you cast from your library, the limit is one card per turn. Since the lore states the development of the academic study of Magic didn't happen until after the war, it helps explains this.
However, despite it making sense design wise, I'm a bit at a loss on how powerstones entering the battlefield tapped works from a flavor point point of view.
Once people realize how good Calamity's Wake can be against control, flashback and stax for mono-white decks the price will go further up.
If you run Urza, Powerstone Prodigy and don't have Mirrodin Besieged in your Commander deck or Terisian Mindbreaker in your Standard deck, you may be building them wrong.
It just occurred to me as I write this that they could have done a whole 10 card cycle of Surveil land cards like the "Temple of..." Scryland cards that originated in the Theros block.
Oh, Awaken the Woods, if you only weren't hovering around $16.
The Locust God Just got some extra card draw in Symmetry Matrix.
The Stasis Coffin, Goblin Firebomb, why do all the really cool colorless control cards have to be so expensive, manawise?
Audacity should make a decent early to mid-game companion to Ram Through in Pioneer.
Alloy Animist would make more sense if the artifact became an Elemental in addition to its other types.
Goblin Arsonist and Festering Goblin, I'd like to introduce you to Goblin Blast-Runner.
Some people seemed surprised about Tocasia, Dig Site Mentor making Surveil available in Bant, but it makes sense considering Surveil can be an oppressive ability. If I were going to create a GWUB aligned faction for a set. Surveil would be my mechanic and not just my keyword.
Fortified Beachhead reminds me of the faction land cards like Murmuring Bosk from the Lorwyn/Shadowmoor block. I wonder what they're planning here.
That's pretty much it with this set. Thank you for reading me out. May you draw well.

If people don't want to help because of rant that's fine but if still want to help despite it great.
As to what im facing I can't remember every deck atm but what I can remeber is 3 Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow ninja, a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight ramp, A Satoru Umezawa Elderazi Ninjutsu deck, A Sheoldred, the Apocalypse deck, a Gitrog land destruction deck. A Atraxa proliferate deck (of course). And a The Locust God Infinite draw/swarm deck
Tasha's Hidesous Laughter is on the chopping block TBH and will consider the other options thxs for ideas

For some reason I was expecting to see Second Wind lol.
Looks alright, although it's a little light on payoffs. I like Oneirophage for decks like this, or Sprite Dragon. Of course the famous one is The Locust God.
This also might be good with Aegar, the Freezing Flame to let you burn things and draw cards at the same time. 4 copies of Irencrag Pyromancer almost seem required, and if you combo him with Aegar you could do quite a lot of drawing and killing things.

Sweet List! Morophon feels like the right commander choice here.
But I'd advise you to put in some more/better card draw.
God-Eternal Kefnet doesn't add cards to your hand, same for The Locust God.
Keranos, God of Storms isn't guaranteed to draw you cards and Kindred Summons won't work when you are behind on board.
With 5c you can just slot in whatever you feel fits, but with 33 creatures something like Beast Whisperer should do the trick. Since most of your gods are enchantments as well you could also go the enchantress route with Eidolon of Blossoms or Enchantress's Presence and things like that.
