The Locust God

Legendary Creature — God

: Draw a card, then discard a card.

When The Locust God dies, return it to its owner's hand at the beginning of the next end step.

NV_1980 on Ghyrson Starn Shot First

I think your deck can indeed do without Gimli and Prankster. I'd also suggest considering replacing these:

  • Corrupted Conscience: there are more beneficial ways to grant Ghyrson infect (like Grafted Exoskeleton). And if it's not for Ghyrson, why is this in here? Your deck doesn't seem to have a thievery theme or any other thievery cards.
  • Midnight Clock: I'd maybe include this in a sideboard if the deck was much heavier on the non-permanents (compared to the permanents). Is your meta very mill-heavy or does it easily wipe your creatures? Then I would also get it. If not, this slot can be used better for something else.
  • Ovika, Enigma Goliath: in my view not really worth its CMC in this deck. It helps you generate the odd token to do what? Attack/block? That's not really what your strat is dependent on though, is it? It's much easier to kill lots of stuff with Ghyrson. I'd say something similar about The Locust God, though he's more reliable as you'll definitely draw every turn (and then some).

SteelSentry on Craterhoof Behemoth or Moonshaker Cavalry?

4 months ago

Craterhoof Behemoth is fetchable by Summoner's Pact and Green Sun's Zenith, which would make me personally lean towards Hoof. Besides that, it depends on the meta; if you've got a deck that pumps out little flyers like The Locust God or Pia Nalaar, Consul of Revival you regularly play against, there's a good chance they might survive the cavalry, but there's also decks that are totally vulnerable in the air that would have no chance.

Interesting read given my nekusar deck. Drawing Cards Friendly Like

Mine is a bit more symetrical than yours, but there are a few bits that might be handy. Jaya, Venerated Firemage or Torbran, Thane of Red Fell will basically be lightning rods as they double/triple your damage output.

Also in my Combo category is a bunch of creatures that benefit a ton from card draw. Chasm Skulker Ominous Seas Teferi, Temporal Pilgrim and The Locust God could be beneficial if you don't find yourself fielding enough creatures to block/swing when someone is open.

BubTheLab on Budget Thopter & Energy EDH - AAAA!

9 months ago

Coward_Token - Impact Tremors feels like it would have more impact (badumtish) especially as a lot of the thopter generators are creatures anyway. Plus the possibility of The Locust God feels like a burst damage chance.

100% missed Berserkers' Onslaught as well, 6 damage little thopters

Immortalys on Card Draw Tag

10 months ago

So I just made a Jhoira, Weatherlight Legends deck, focussing on Legends (of course) with a card draw theme.

With a Card Draw theme I mean cards like Jori En, Ruin Diver, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and Honden of Seeing Winds for straight up card draw.

Cards like Alandra, Sky Dreamer and Minn, Wily Illusionist for second card drawn each turn (I know this is a tag already).

Cards that pay of drawing lots of cards like Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, The Locust God and Teferi, Temporal Pilgrim.

Cards that pay you off for having lots of cards in hand like Alrund, God of the Cosmos  Flip, Hisoka, Minamo Sensei and Meishin, the Mind Cage.

And other cards with card draw synergies like Teferi's Ageless Insight and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.

Also cards that grant an unlimited hand size like Nezahal, Primal Tide, Thought Vessel, Decanter of Endless Water, Wizard Class and the good old Reliquary Tower.

So how come there is no Card Draw tag yet?

NV_1980 on Gathering Storm

The The Locust God seems like a very nice fit in here. Maybe even Purphoros, God of the Forge as an alternative wincon?

TheoryCrafter on Jesus take the Wheel

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
