Craterhoof Behemoth Discussion

With the amount of basics you have I would say to either take out Farhaven Elf or Solemn Simulacrum (I say either because of the differing mana costs) I like the pick with the Ulvenwald Hydra with all the non basics. I like the doomsday thing you're trying to pull off with Laboratory Maniac, I would chuck it in my deck as well, but getting the combo reliably isn't consistent and if you draw a lab maniac during a regular game I guarantee you that he will sit in your hand forever and its the first thing you discard since it doesn't actively do something, I get that every piece serves a purpose but lab maniac doesn't serve much of a purpose except take up a valuable card slot to get to a game plan that won't happen often (good try though). My recommendation to you is that you get a Minion Reflector instead since it doubles ETB triggers with a hasty body for mana and it combos just as well as the infinite draw combo you wanted to fire off.
Add Jace's Mindseeker it synergizes well with your diluvian primordial. Instead of Goldnight Redeemer use Cloudblazer, its the card draw that sells this one and at that rate add Mulldrifter over blue sun's.
By themselves Myr Battlesphere, Avenger of Zendikar, can sure make tokens and operate as efficient threats by themselves but they need a bit more to be more relevant, Hornet Queen is in a worse position but in the same boat.Cathars' Crusade, Call for Unity and Meadowboon can shore up the fact that your value creatures and tokens are typically small while staying with your main game plan (while staying cheaper than Craterhoof Behemoth), even if that's fetching for a basic. Swap the angel of invention for the crusade. Instead of icefall reagent use Frost Titan if you want more value locking things down. You have in your deck, you want Leyline of Anticipation since if its in your opening hand its free over the orrery if you didn't have then run the orrery.
I'm under the assumption that you want to be a control variant, which is fine but you need to have more control aspects like counterspells, add Counterspell Disallow, Voidslime and Glen Elendra Archmage she also combos well the cathar's crusade. I want you to look at Ghostly Flicker and tell me how good it is after a board wipe, cards like that are not good cards, you have the right idea with adding other blinkers like restoration angel, and Eldrazi displacer, they are so much better in comparison since they are creatures and can do something versus sitting in your hand and doing nothing after a wipe. Vorinclex seems cool, but I find that stalling out my opponents does better when its my main game plan (he also doesn't have an ETB effect either), I don't see much use out of him otherwise.
A bunch of your cards are good cards but the deck needs more focus. Edric rewards aggressive decks, this deck has aspects but can't always cash in on that. This deck wants to control the board but has a big volume of unnecessary blink (cough* ghostly flicker cards exclusively) and creatures that don't control the board, unlike stonehorn dignitary and mystic snake. You can get a lot more reliable and repeatable card draw out of creatures versus instants and sorceries because you run a blink deck, so abuse that. I don't understand what you seek to copy with cards like progenitor mimic, if you want cool creatures go with a control classic like Gilded Drake.
Choose a style and go with it, if you take a look at my Roon deck you will see a lot of cards that don't seem to synergize, but they have a common and fun theme that's extremely powerful and oppressive since they have an underlying theme. I control the board then I go aggro for the win. Treat your Roon deck like an exclusively ETB/LTB midrange deck at first. There are a lot of cuts I would make if I were in your shoes, but i'm not so its really in your ball court to start capitalizing on Roon's potential. There are also a lot more things to say, but I'll let this comment sink in for now. Just ask if you need more help/suggestions, or check out my list for reference.

Gonna be swapping between Search for Azcanta Flip, Bribery, and Spitting Image in the Craterhoof Behemoth slot to see which I prefer. Hoofta has been a dead draw for awhile or a win more when he's relevant

Hey there, I was just browsing and saw this in the help thread and thought I would offer my two cents as I have much experience with Omnath. First of all lemme say that it does not seem like you have any sure fire way to end the game. Siege Behemoth seems to be the only way. So I would look at cards like Triumph of the Hordes, Overwhelming Stampede, Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, Craterhoof Behemoth, Pathbreaker Ibex, Blightsteel Colossus, and also maybe an Eldrazi Titan or three. Some other great ramp cards that are out there are Traverse the Outlands and Patron of the Orochi Along with that I would say you may want to consider some removal spells like Krosan Grip, Beast Within, Song of the Dryads. Another couple of cards you may want to think about is protection for Omnath and also maybe a way or two to make him unblockable. These would be cards like Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Whispersilk Cloak, Lightning Greaves, Key to the City, Rogue's Passage and the like. Also since you have an Extraplanar Lens you could run Snow-Covered Forests instead of regular to deny any other person playing green the doubling affect. Lastly there is a card that does well in every Omnath deck ever and that is Genesis Wave. My God I can't even begin to tell you how great this card is in this deck. Those are my thoughts as of now. Tell me what you think!

Craterhoof Behemoth and Tooth and Nail are great finishers for this build. Glimpse of Nature can be a very powerful draw engine once Selvala starts pumping out lots of mana. My build has several infinite combos included, which you noted you're trying to avoid, but maybe something else in there would fit well - feel free to check it out Emerald Evolution.

It looks like you have a finely crafted mono-green list here! What about Seasons Past as a piece of mass recursion for your list to help recover from board wipes and the like? Also, I feel that Defense of the Heart in conjunction with Craterhoof Behemoth could do some serious work in this deck. Overall it looks like a solid deck and it looks like a blast to play!
+1 from me!

Mono green elves can be a very budget friendly tribe to start with since the lords are really cheap (substitute Collected Companys for Lead the Stampedes). Plus they have a nice ability to expand and upgrade as money becomes less of an issue for new players (upgrade to Collected Company, go the combo route with Craterhoof Behemoth or Devoted Druid, go the aggro route with Shaman of the Pack, expand to GW or GB, ect)

I have a few questions for you!
And is cradle worth it in this deck? Seems like there is nothing to really do with the abundance of mana.
