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 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.

The Locust God Discussion

RambIe on What Conversations do you not …

wotanaz1337 you are so right, this just happened Saturday night. Two of us were just playing causal Timmy decks and the other one running The Locust God had Sensei's Divining Top+Etherium Sculptor I felt like he was about to combo off so when he tapped top to draw I responded with Nature's Claim first he freaked out saying the games are taking to long (we were less the 20mins into 1st game and I already had him and the other player around 16 life) then not only did he scoop he refused to play for the rest of the night even when the others arrived

Note: Brainstorm isn't modern legal

Your deck has 20 creatures that have payoff for drawing cards and casting spells, but only 17 actual spells. I would run 16 creatures tops and replace them with more instants/sorceries.

Archmage Ascension synergizes with all your card draw, but it's a complete nonbo with your card draw trigger effects like Chasm Skulker, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, and The Locust God. Also, it's really slow.

I'd also probably cut Kumena's Awakening because a conditional 4-mana draw an extra card each turn isn't that good.

For the spells, Radical Idea is bad. To replace Brainstorm you could maybe run the new cantrip we are getting in MID, Consider. Sinister Sabotage doesn't really cut it in modern, I'd suggest Counterspell, Archmage's Charm, and Spell Pierce. Expressive Iteration might also be good here, although it doesn't draw cards. Maybe Serum Visions.

I do this all the time. My Mina and Denn, Wildborn landfall was turned into Rhonas the Indomitable big mana, into Omnath, Locus of Mana big mana storm. My The Locust God wheels&draw deck, at least the red part, got absorbed into Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion . My boros equipment commander used to be Archangel Avacyn  Flip, then went jeskai for a bit with Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , and then back to boros, with Akiri+ Ardenn, Intrepid Archaeologist . Athreos, God of Passage split up in Heliod, God of the Sun and Rankle, Master of Pranks . 5c Golos, Tireless Pilgrim enchantress went Klothys, God of Destiny enchantress, while the mana base is currently making its way to Najeela, the Blade-Blossom .

My decks are always in motion, and when I acquire new legendaries, I do like to fiddle around to see if my decks can get more interesting. Of course, it very much depends on the rest of the deck if I'd still consider it the same deck. Klothys enchantress is completely different from Golos enchantress, but the big mana green decks have always played similarly, making 100 mana and pumping a mana dork with Rhonas for lethal is fun, but if you can make 100 mana, your deck is just more suited to be mono G Omnath. Rhonas is still in the 99. When I made boros equipment, we hadn't started the surge of great boros equipment legends yet that we are enjoying now, naturally I found better choices over time for that.

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 .

Faux_Faux on Card creation challenge

....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.
