Art-n-Lutherie on Omnath, Locus of Mana

1 day ago

Nissa, Worldwaker is a great planeswalker for this (using her second +1 of course), as is Garruk Wildspeaker for ramp. Exploration and Burgeoning are great for additional land drops. Temple of the False God is an important land too. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is just an excellent way to help yourself and wreck your opponents. You'll definitely want to run Extraplanar Lens, Gauntlet of Power, Caged Sun, and Vernal Bloom for further ramp. A Gilded Lotus, and Thran Dynamo are good mana fixers too. I love Omnath as a commander. Check out my deck Welcome to the Jungle (Omnath fun and games). He's my favorite one.

I know it is slow and probably bad but I like it and it suits me just fine.

I specifically meant Sen Triplets, not Sharuum the Hegemon (the real artifact esper commander of choice other than Sydri, Galvanic Genius), in fact now that I think about it, Sen Triplets sucks as an esper artifact commander, and also Celestial Dawn isn't exactly an artifact combo.

Onto the combos themselves, and the reason Exquisite Blood/Sanguine Bond is not only better than them, yet they should never be in the decklist at all.


Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond are enchantments, so they can be Replenished/Open the Vaultsed back with ease after a Tunnel Vision/Traumatize, and the fact they need lifeloss is easy with an unblockable hexproof commander. Neither of your "combos" win the game, let alone can be Replenished.


Celestial Dawn + Caged Sun = Double you land mana, and give it perfect fixing, minus Ancient Tomb, which now only receives fixing, and Boseiju, Who Shelters All doesn't protect you stuff, ad your artifact mana is kind of sucky now.

See what happened, a 9 mana two card combo did worse than a Mirari's Wake, which is another way of saying it sucks, together. On their own, Caged Sun does very little ramping, and it outclassed by Thran Dynamo/Gilded Lotus most of the time, which I could make an argument that they were bad, and Celestial Dawn is even worse, with this deck already having an incredibly powerful landbase, it un-ramps you with Ancient Tomb and Boseiju, Who Shelters All sucks now.


Onto the next "combo:" This one you were kind enough to even put a reason for:

"Also Mycosynth Lattice + Unwinding Clock would be a similarly effective combo that would create tons of value that would support your Voltron strat/board state as well"

Okay, Mycosynth Lattice + Unwinding Clock untaps all of your permanents (lands, artifacts and creatures mostly), along with fixing each players mana perfectly, and leaving you open to a blowout with Hellkite Tyrant, By Force, Vandalblast or Shattering Spree.

Okay, so tons of value? I mean it has a major couple of downsides, this deck is fine on its own fixing, and it fixes for all of your opponents? it is 10 mana, and can't be cheated out by Replenish, so it comes late in the game, and your opponents can probably tutor a Vandalblast up be now, so tons of value? Lets, see, if we untap every one of our permanents, every turn, what ways do we have to abuse the excess of mana? 8 things, of which 5 are instants (Cyclonic Rift, Dark Ritual, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor), we can also move around Felidar Umbra a lot, activate Nomad Mythmaker, or Flickerform a little bit.

Underwhelming isn't it, we can use 8 cards, of which Cyclonic Rift and Flickerform are the only two good uses of it. 2 cards are benefited in a way that could have been done with out the combo.

Well, yeah, and the cards are bad on their own, so it is a trash combo in this deck, despite what you said.

Celestial Dawn/Mycosynth Lattice is only run in Esper because of Sen Triplets, otherwise, they aren't worth it for their comboes.

Mycosynth Lattice sets you up for the Vandalblast loss, and Celestial Dawn isn't good for the deck with all of our fixing. Unwinding Clock and Caged Sun also aren't very good.

As neither combo wins us the game, both are expensive, and all 4 cards are dead, they shouldn't be run.

Starsky2814 I'd say run the feast and famine so that you can have the possible threat of fully open mana during opponents' turns while playing an Esper commander

Always good to be intimidating.

Also Mycosynth Lattice + Unwinding Clock would be a similarly effective combo that would create tons of value that would support your Voltron strat/board state as well

or a Celestial Dawn + Caged Sun combo

Just things that I run in my Esper EDH decks that kind of help give the various strategies a little boost to get there faster or stay there longer

Cards I'd recommend:

Cryptic Gateway

Quicksilver Amulet

Urza's Incubator

Gilded Lotus

Caged Sun

Your mana curve is high, if you add in these cards over time your deck should run a lot smoother.

DrkNinja on O-Kagachi-O

So I just want you to know vasarto77 I'm not trying to trash the deck but there's no coherent strategy. If you are going to use O-Kagachi that's fine but you have to build around that or build around a strategy. "Good Stuff" decks only work in decks like Jodah's Fire Sale! where we cheat stuff like Omniscience, Eldrazi titans, and Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh.

You are stuck in between a tron deck and random cards. Here are some cards that I feel should go in ANY 5 color deck immediately

If you are going to go the "good stuff" route I'd honestly just suggest switching commanders to Jodah, Archmage Eternal but if you are sticking with O-Kagachi here are some actual good stuff suggestions:

And if you want to go the tron route...

Open the Armory Steelshaper's Gift Masterwork of Ingenuity Puresteel Paladin Stoneforge Mystic Spectra Ward

I also think that Rowan Kenrith and Will Kenrith (BMHKain I FINALLY FOUND A DECK SHE'S GOOD IN!) I think would be good to help you trigger your commander's abilities.

Also Summary Dismissal is really good if you are having problems with people comboing out.

Deruvid on lay down the land

Excellent list. I only have a few suggestions. I prefer Praetor's Counsel to The Great Aurora as a reset. With the extra land-drop cards you run, you'll accelerate your mana faster than drawing a new hand and putting lands down. Then again, sometimes you just need a full board reset, so the Aurora might work better for you since you're light on removal.

If you need more land-sac outlets other than Zuran Orb, Sylvan Safekeeper is great. It also combos nicely with Titania, Protector of Argoth.

Lastly, Scapeshift would be a great way to trigger your landfall abilities, and ramp up Multani (but it is a bit pricey).

Bonus: you may not need the extra mana, but I like to play mana doublers like Caged Sun, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, or Zendikar Resurgent.
