Savage1988, I appreciate your recommendations of what to change in my deck. You may not have seen Compost in the list because I am making little changes all the time. I'm aiming to build my OmRath list as competitively as possible, and that requires maintenance and play-testing!
Khalni Heart Expedition, Devoted Druid, and Summoner's Pact are all great cards for you to use in the list. For these it's important to note that a lot of people don't neglect these cards because they are bad, but choose to use others because they think others are a slightly better fit. For example, because Omnath, Locus of Rage benefits from landfall triggers, it is usually advantageous to prioritize ramp spells over mana dorks like Devoted Druid.
Gruul Turf is a fantastic card, but doesn't make the cut for the same reason other come-into-play-tapped dual lands don't. It is advantageous to have 1) as many double land drops like Fabled Passage as possible and 2) as many basics as possible for Perilous Forays should you draw it. While Gruul Turf is a great include, it is neither of those 2 things and gets cut from competitive lists. It is worth noting that these two conditions are meant to be for mana fixing lands, not those like Reliquary Tower.
Eternal Witness allows you to recur anything from your grave with any of your creature tutor cards: Green Sun's Zenith, Finale of Devastation, or Chord of Calling. This also means you can recur non-creature cards like enchantments with creature tutor cards. It is important to understand that by adding 1 Eternal Witness to the deck, you yield up to 4 outs in the deck should you ever want to recur something from your grave. While it may not always be your choice, it vastly increases your range of options with creature tutor cards.
Hope this helps!

Nice deck ! ;)
Did you try adding some cards giving +1/+1 counters ? 'cause there's a rule where a +1/+1 counter negates a -1/-1 counter; that might be usefull for some cards you play like Ammit Eternal or Devoted Druid

Been trying to think of a list for this commander. I usually build one around every Abzan commander as it is my favorite Wedge in Magic. I like the list you have here. I was experimenting with Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Devoted Druid in mine. Can be used for Infinite mana with a haste enabler. The haste was the hard part so it ultimately didn't take off from there. Maybe in Jund. A card I would include 100% is Winding Constrictor Double up on the vigilance counters and makes it easier to use Tayam's ability.

Neat interaction, hadn’t thought of that. I tend to shy away from infinite combos like this, my playgroup doesn’t really appreciate them, and I don’t mind not playing them. Keeps games a little more interesting i feel. If you’re going for power though, it sounds great!
Thanks for the insight. I’ll have to think on it a bit. With regards to what to cut for Into the North: i don’t see Compost in the list? Perhaps a land. 42 seems like a lot, even though it’s the answer to life, the universe and everything. Sensei's Divining Top seems odd too, but i’m sure i’m missing something there.

Hey, LucaMassone,thanks for the kind words! Always appreciate the feedback. So here we go:
Yes, yes it is. For so, so many reasons. Having a less straightforward deck means there are no straight up bad matches or bad scenarios. If the opponent has a Sorcerous Spyglass or a Pithing Needle, i highly doubt they have enough for all of the different ways I have to win the game. If they have graveyard hate, I have the Devoted Druid combos and the Heliod, Sun-Crowned combos. If they can survive through me gaining infinite life, I can also do infinite damage or attack for infinite damage, depending on if they've given themselves heatproof or if they have Ensnaring Bridge or whatever it is. This is the most versatile deck ever. On top of that, with Glittering Wish, I have access to every silver bullet I want from the sideboard for game one. Also, they can remove or destroy all the copies of my main combo in my deck, but they can't get rid of the one of each piece i have on the side. And in regards to mid and late game, dont forget, all of these pieces are creatures, and attacking with a bunch of cheap creatures can be quite the game-winning strategy. On top of that, I have plenty of preparation for those moments, with beefier threats like Hexdrinker, Fiend Artisan, Steel Leaf Champion, and Spellskite. It's just so much more well rounded, so much more confident. I wouldn't do it any other way.
Blood Moon is a jerk. Im much more confident with the fetching for basics strategy, but it's not 100%. It's a hard match-up for a lot of tri color decks that don't already have control or mid range strategies built in. I'd be open to suggestions actually haha, but most of the time it hasn't been too much of a burden. But when it hits, oh boy does it hit lol =P

I thought a lot about adding cards like Prime Speaker Vannifar, but i don't really want to have sorcery speed cards in my deck, as they are only useful for finding the combos and don't really do anything else.
I already thought about Thassa's Oracle, but i am not sure yet whether i want to play Consultation. I know it is powerful, but i dislike cards i cannot use that much outside their combo. If i have enough cyclers (as i want to have a small ETB package + a lot of cyclers) Coveted Jewel can be a janky combo if combined with Escape Protocol to draw my library, but the Yisan-Line with Spellseeker is tempting.
For the other suggestions, i absolutely love Galvanic Alchemist! Haven't even heard of that card, but it is pretty awesome. I don't know which cards i will use in the end to combo with it, in the moment, i lean towards something janky like Oasis Ritualist, but i'm not sure about that yet. The advantage would be i don't have to rely on elves that much. The only problem i see at all using this combo is the need for Biomancer's Familiar to work, but if i include Training Grounds for a little redundancy i might like it.
I also thought about cards like Freed from the Real if i play enough 2-mana-producers, or a combo like Devoted Druid + One with the Stars, but without good creature tutors for enchantments or access to white those aren't as consistent as i would like them to be.
