Crucible of Worlds Discussion

WrathofCod I switched to Omnath, Locus of Rage because he is a very powerful general. He does have a significantly higher mana cost than Mina and Denn, but what he does is worth the high mana cost. Plus I use a ton of ramp in the deck, allowing me to get him out with ease.
Glacial Chasm is a great card to abuse with M&D because you can play it, then bounce it back with their ability an play it when the board isn't in your favor. If you are worried about the lands being sacc'd, you can play cards like Splendid Reclamation or Groundskeeper; or if you have it, Crucible of Worlds.
I like any card that gives you a body whenever you play a land (for chump blocking and attacking), which is why I suggested Sporemound. It does, however, have amazing synergy with Perilous Forays, as you can sac the tokens produced by Rampaging Baloths, Angry Omnath and the mound for a large number of landfall triggers (it's super awesome when you have another token generator out). If you want to be able to fetch out every basic land in your deck, you can combine Perilous Forays with Amulet of Vigor and Lotus Cobra; and to a lesser extent, Stone-Seeder Hierophant. Fertilid does a similar thing with Retreat to Kazandu as the above combo, but requires more mana.
Descent of the Dragons is a fantastic board wipe imo! I was considering adding into Angry Omnath because you can attack with your elementals and then main phase 2 blowing them up with Descent and bolt people to death. In this deck, I think it'll be pretty good if you have a bunch of 1/1 creatures out since you can attack, and then blow them up for 4/4 fliers. There are some other board wipes that would be good in this deck, such as Blasphemous Act, so depending on how you feel, I think the latter should be considered first but the former is a great option too.
I think the eldrazi do pretty well in here, as you can play land/ramp into tokens and then play those, I think it'd require a bit of testing, so it depends on the outcome of games. Oblivion Sower has synergy, allowing you to play lands that you exiled with him for more landfall triggers.
For cuts, I'd recommend cutting mana dorks since you mainly want to ramp via lands due to the value you get from them. This also allows the deck to be less reliant on your commander too. Burning-Tree Emissary seems rather mediocre for EDH (she's amazing in Modern and Pauper though haha), along with Plummet and Naturalize. Paragon of Eternal Wilds also seems a tad mediocre from its boost and effect (you have Skarrg Guildmage to give all your creatures trample).
This deck is coming together very well, no problem and thanks for the upvote on the primer!

Ash Barrens is another land with strong synergy with The Gitrog Monster. Use its basic landcycling ability to thin your deck, and draw a card.
Sylvan Safekeeper is a powerful 1-drop that gives your powerful creatures protection, with the cost of additional synergy. Everything about it is perfect in this list.
Tranquil Thicket is another cycle land missing from your mana base.
Crop Rotation can tutor for ANY land in your library, so feel free to surprise opponents with a turn one Strip Mine or Urborg.
Exploration and Crucible of Worlds are a couple pretty pricy cards, but they add so much to your deck. The former helps you keep ramping even after Gitrog hits the field, and the latter is simply broken.

Perfect_Phyrexia: Sorry for the late response, just got off work, but yea in regards to Sensei's Divining Top I think that is a preference based decision, I like it personally, but can see a cut for it. Additionally, if we are looking to replace Sensei's Divining Top we can always play Scroll Rack, but not sure if we need that either, still a great card either way. Personally, when I have been playing the deck I have been in love with Pox and think it is a keeper, also a fan of Death Cloud, although I think we need to ramp a little into it. The more I research Glissa, the Traitor stax decks the more I feel we need to bust the green element and really ramp into a dominant board state and decimate the board with our stax effects. Even further, if we play things like Oracle of Mul Daya we can really abuse Crucible of Worlds and Strip Mine, or set up for a fat Death Cloud. Another thing, do you feel we should play Eternal Witness, I think when it is paired with Volrath's Stronghold we can grab about anything we want from the graveyard ,seems spicy, but I don't know. Lastly, what is your oponion to playing Clock of Omens, do you think its worth it? Just sharing ideas I have been having, not sure if they are valid :D

If your deck ran more fetch lands I'd definitely recommend Skeletal Scrying since instant speed draw x spells can be pretty powerful so long as you have enough fodder in your graveyard.
If your deck ran more fetch lands I'd also recommend Crucible of Worlds since having any fetch land in your graveyard guarantees you'll never miss a land drop and they're amazing for stax decks that run effects that can blow up their own lands since it will give you an edge over your opponents.

Why not Crucible of Worlds? It would be a nice addition to the deck in my opinion

Sorry about that, I've now re-enabled it.
I don't think I have enough sac lands for Loam. PlusCrucible of Worlds fills that slot.

hoardofnotions I played the deck once yesterday and won in a game of three people. Early game was dominated by Strip Mine and Crucible of Worlds, which slowed down the other combo deck on the table with Arcum Dagsson and then when my frog hit the table it only took one turn to find the dredge land and a discard outlet and it killed in the same turn with Psychosis Crawler and infinite card draw. I had to mill my library (and shuffle it back with Ulamog) twice to find a way to get 5 mana for the crawler with only one remaining untapped swamp and no more remaining land drops for the turn. Only Rain of Filth could do that. so I had to mill until I found it...
Absolutely funny to play the deck but in the future I can just explain what I do when I have the dredge/discard combo rather than drawing every second card in the deck and repeat with Ulamog if I haven't found the kill yet.

Crucible of Worlds pairs wonderfully with Mana Vortex. That being out of the way, if any would be willing to provide suggestions for a deck of my creation, Please Hold i would be much obliged. the deck itself refused to link sadly.
