The theme of this deck is pretty simple: get The Locust God out and then draw cards to create insect tokens.

A lot of control is built in to try and keep him alive once out, these mainly focus on countering instants or sorcery spells aimed at removing him. There are also a few board wipes in case you need to reset things such as Cyclonic Rift and Blasphemous Act.

There are plenty of draw/discard effects to pump out tokens once he is out. One of the major combos of this deck is Ashnod's Altar/Phyrexian Altar + Skullclamp + insect tokens. This will allow you to sacrifice an insect to draw two cards, and create mana, then create two more tokens with The Locust God.

You can also combo Sage of the Falls with The Locust God. Each insect token will draw you a card, which in turn creates an insect token, rinse and repeat until you go through your deck.

Containment Construct lets you potentially take advantage of a discarded card to play it. Library of Leng also lets you save a discarded card with the bonus of unlimited hand size.

Impact Tremors/Purphoros, God of the Forge can combo with the above token generation for a ton of damage.

Shared Animosity is a good finisher once you have a large number of insect tokens.

Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter can generate infinite mana assuming you have some mana rocks out.

Since this deck has the potential to discard your entire library, we want to avoid milling ourselves into a loss. This is where Echo of Eons, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and potentially Finale of Revelation will help you shuffle your graveyard into your library.

You could potentially add Thassa's Oracle or Laboratory Maniac as win conditions with the mill, but this is not what I wanted to focus on with this deck.

Possible infinite combo to add: Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity
