Shinwizzles on Omnath, Locus of Rage

1 week ago

Awesome deck! Omnath, Locus of Rage is definitely my favorite Gruul commander. I notice that you have a lot of cards that deal damage to creatures, so it might benefit you to find a place for Repercussion in your deck. Can't decide where to aim Omnath, Locus of Rage's ability? Well with Repercussion you won't have to!

Rampaging Baloths has been an absolute powerhouse in my deck. The high CMC isn't much to worry about if you ramp enough mana up early on in the game. In the same vein, Zendikar's Roil is a little cheaper, and even gives you elementals for more Omnath, Locus of Rage triggers. Liege of the Tangle is also pretty solid. He can end the game pretty easily if you have enough lands to sacrifice to kill an opponent. It combos nicely with Titania, Protector of Argoth, but I'd only add her if you think you have enough effects that send lands to the graveyard (Scapeshift, Crop Rotation, and Wave of Vitriol are great with her!)

With all the mana you're working with, you might want to consider adding Genesis Wave, which gets pretty bonkers when X is anything over like, 10. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx might be another addition worth thinking about. Not sure if it'd be worth it, since you have more sorceries than any other category, but it works well in my deck.

Great deck, looks like a lot of fun!

I have to share The7thBobba's admiration for such a great plant tribal. Awesome!

Genesis Wave could be pretty nice here.

with Cabal Coffers, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Gaea's Cradle, I dont see any problems having large Genesis Wave's. To be fair I think Squandered Resources is probably the best catalyst for this deck. Glad to see you putting in Seasons Past its just an unfair card mid game.

try making a butt ton of mana with cradle and coffers, sac them to resources, use windgrace to get them back, then genesis wave yer whole derk. managed to pull that off once it was perdy nuts. So far this looks like the most solid and balanced windgrace deck ive seen on tapped out so far.

Thanks Blackerlotus13! You may have overlooked Crop Rotation. As for Craterhoof Behemoth, I will be using him in another deck so I needed to take him out and I instead relied on Triumph of the Hordes and Glistening Oil for win conditions. Seedborn Muse on the other hand will be changed to Seasons Past, I forgot to remove this one along with another card I use this with which was here before. Magus of the Candelabra just helps me with Genesis Wave and I just personally want to use it. Hahaha!

Love your deck as ive considered the milling for midgame as well; however, im personally not a fan of the auras since in my playgroup if someone has their commander out at any moment, the consensus of the table is usually “ either kill the one with the commander outright or kill their commander immediately”. And since we all know auras fall off when your commander comes out, yada yada yada.

Instead, i stick to the pillowforty version of bantchantments, and aim to instead win with a timely Genesis Wave for free things, throwing down a soft lock like Greater Auramancy + Sterling Grove, or using Estrid's Invocation or Copy Enchantment to form that same soft lock, and then proceeding to throw down a Decree of Silence + Solemnity hard lock to shut everyone else out of the game.

Again, though, really enjoyed playtesting your deck on here and watching it perform on Muddstah’s channel!

I know, it's a hard choice between Genesis Wave and Primal Surge, but the more i play it I'll make my decision on what to keep.

Thanks for the input!

redace10 on Kestia's Divine Army

I recently put together a kestia deck myself. A few ideas for you:

Dawn's Reflection Another copy of market festival. Farseek is the card I would swap out. You have only four duals and run quite a lot of basics.

You run very few instants or sorceries. Has Genesis Wave crossed your mind? Looks like it'd be a bomb in this deck.

I think Ephara, God of the Polis and Nylea, God of the Hunt would both be great cards in the deck. I would swap celestial archon and nylea's collusus for those. The gods have much higher upside and are so very on theme. You have enough creatures in the deck to make ephara worth it.

Lastly, a real gem in Kestia that gets overlooked is Venser, the Sojourner. I haven't found another card that does what his minus does, its absurdly good for kestia. The plus is okay, good to flick auramancer or the like, or trigger constellation. The minus is all that really matters though. With a good board state, can easily refill your hand and easily kill someone.

Hope you like some of my ideas. Cool deck, I freaking love Kestia so much.

Catpocolypse on Card Vomit

Genesis Wave is a nasty card, my friend has a Genesis Wave deck that goes off turn 3 and there is nothing you can do to stop it. All you can do is hope that he gets a bad draw or misses an Eternal Witness with his Genesis Wave. Anyway, You play what you think feels right. I've gone though many an hour, testing that deck and reforming it into what it is today. You might very well have a different style of playing this deck, like more agressive with Primeval Titan or more Pillowforty with Heroic Intervention. Whatever fits your playstyle and playgroup's meta. As you probably saw in my deck, my Maybeboard is for others who have made Spawnsire of Ulamog decks. If you need a little bit of an extra board state, I recommend Seed the Land or Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger. Seed the Land can give you several cheap blockers a turn and Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is similar to Omnath, Locus of Mana in which he adds a large board presence along with a mana ramp theme. I'd keep these in mind if your playgroup takes advantage of you (sometimes) have only Joraga Treespeaker and Arbor Elfs and the odd Omnath, Locus of Mana or Primeval Titan.
