Azusa, Lost but Seeking Discussion

SnakeByte77 Also good idea! I would consider Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Wayward Swordtooth for the Explore slot. I just don't know if I would consider the card draw on Explore as more important, but then again it's only two copies...

Profishkeeping Thanks for the feedback! Both cards would definitely be viable options. I went for Territorial Scythecat instead of Scute Swarm because it's quite decent against token-/weenie-decks (because of trample), but I guess this is a matter of taste. Azusa, Lost but Seeking is a nice idea, but with her in the lineup the deck would be even more susceptible in the early-game for it would lack a 3-Drop threat. But I'll playtest her to see if I can ramp with her so fast, that the deck will transition into the late-game way earlier. Then she would be absolutely worth mainboarding.

BenWin: Sorry for the delayed response! I think there it is important to note that including worse versions of a card in a deck is alright while the "better card" is in the list as well. Evolving Wilds and Fabled Passage are perfect examples. Why not run both if you can? Hitting landfall at least twice a turn is a key feature of this deck. That is why we run 42 lands to begin with. I don't blame anyone for omitting Wilds, I just don't see the need to do so at this point.
The key reason I swapped in World Shaper is the crazy amount of creature ramp this deck runs now. I slotted in Dryad Arbor which turned Green Sun's Zenith and Finale of Devastation into great ramp spells early game. This increase in tutors paved the way for the Shaper change.
When it comes to my thoughts on Doubling Season, yes it is just a worse Parallel Lives, but that's ok. Just like the Wilds example above, and like DasTree and Rasaru said, redundant effects are great for us. You have no idea how happy I am that Terror of the Peaks is a card now! I will take all of these effects I can get. In fact, I find myself winning off non-combat damage A LOT more now!
My Om_rath deck is sitting at 10 draw spells, Return of the Wildspeaker being the weakest one. That being said, it is on the short list to be cut from the deck if a better draw ability is released. I do however think it is better for us then Life's Legacy and Momentous Fall do to its flexibility and also being instant speed.
Personally, I have won way to many games with Genesis Wave to cut it. Hitting even a bunch of lands is a great thing in this deck. I would also say the same thing about Command Beacon, it has to be my favorite land in the deck. Being able to skip commander tax for a commander as feared as Om_rath is amazing!
I hope you don't feel like am knocking back your ideas. The great thing about this commander is the vast amount of card options that are out there for us to pull from. I don't think a single card to added is without merit, I just like the way my deck is functioning right now. Thank you for the feedback!
Savag3B3ast: I think the deck is at a critical mass when it comes to wincons and sac-outlets so that is the only reason why those two cards are not in my list. They are great for sure, and can see why you would run them!
Savage1988: Congrats on upgrading the list! I am also a bigger fan of Life from the Loam however, Exploration is at a very low price right now do to the recent reprint, so it might be wise to get that now. Nevertheless, that effect exists on many cards, although not 1cmc, so there are many ways to fill in that gap at a budget. I would as strongly suggest grabbing an Azusa, Lost but Seeking right now! It nuts how cheap she is right now! OH, and you won't have to wait long for Lotus Cobra to be really cheap!!! (I will definitly be getting the new fancy one in foil!)
Also, if your going the Snow-land route, I can see Into the North being a good include for sure!
We got a couple spicy spoilers from the new Zendikar set for sure. Valakut Exploration seems cool, but putting a deadline on the cards drawn makes me unsure. Roiling Regrowth is a worse Harrow that might be worth looking at though!
AND just in case anyone doubted, I am for sure making a Omnath, Locus of Creation deck! To make it different then my other three Omnath decks, I am building him as a "multi-color creature tribal" deck, focusing on the second landfall trigger to get big splashy creatures out. I am also making a sideboard of any cool gold framed creatures I get hands on, sorted by cmc. Before a game I will pick randomly set amount from each cmc and fill out the deck. It seems like a fun new way to add some variety to games!

Thanks bushido_man96 And IrateWarrior, I hear mana is important ;). On that note, I should probably put in Azusa, Lost but Seeking as well. If I get a bunch of draws, the couple more lands to drop may be just what I need to keep the storm moving. I also have a few of the cheaper free mana rocks like Lotus Petal.
I know it’s hard to do when you haven’t played the deck, but could you recommend anything to remove?

Thanks for taking the time and for your suggestions.
I get that Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Azusa, Lost but Seeking, etc are similar effects to Exploration, but it costing 1 mana and not (easily) dying are very significant I feel. There’s very little 1cmc ramp in the list otherwise and small creatures are often collateral to board wipes. I do see the value of Life from the Loam too, and it seems like a card you need to play with to truly appreciate.
Would you rank all the suggestions you made after lftl/exploration, or are they even higher priority?
I actually figured Skullclamp wasn’t that important since there’s so many engine pieces that drag you along when you’re making tokens and saccing em (which is where i’d see skullclamp doing its work, since there’s hardly any x/1 creatures in the deck).
Steely Resolve feels a little too protective, but i understand it’s very good
Eternal Witness is definitely coming in sometime soon.
Scapeshift is more of a cost thing, would love to have it
Any other thoughts on: - Into the North as another 2 cmc ramp spell (with some snowlands ofc)? - Field of the Dead when we’re running those anyway - Zendikar's Roil might be a bit of a nombo with Garruk's Uprising and Elemental Bond but still poops out elementals we can sac?
I saw your deck, how good has Sekki, Seasons' Guide been? It seems like a pet card, not something you need in the list (not that that’s bad, i have many, just a consideration to cut.)

Savage1988, I would be happy to voice my opinion. I would definitely vote for Life from the Loam. Life from the Loam has a unique effect and can fill your graveyard with lands quickly. It combos well with Crucible of Worlds + Azusa, Lost but Seeking, and gives you a better late game World Shaper tutor option if you want it. Exploration, on the other hand, has slightly more expensive replacements like Mina and Denn, Wildborn.
Some of the first few cards I'd recommend adding are Eternal Witness, Skullclamp, Steely Resolve, and Scapeshift in that order. The first three cards are versatile, and don't need to be combo'd with anything in specific. Scapeshift is also great on its own, but combos disgustingly well with World Shaper, which you already have.
I hope this helps! And if you're looking for more budget ideas, maybe you should check out VexenX's budget Omrath deck mentioned above in the primer.

This deck looks awesome already. I’m working on a similar build but i’m using cards which are already on your maybeboard namely Notion Thief, Windfall, Narset, Parter of Veils and Ashiok, Dream Render. I’m also looking into adding a bit of land destruction pieces like Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Azusa, Lost but Seeking and Strip Mine. Not sure if this is of any help considering how optimized your list already is.
