Dragon Fangs works wonders. ran a symilar deck and cannot recommend this card enough. it may not be able to target multani, but it auto-equips when you play him.

Bow of Nylea is amazing once you do have trample - all blockers have 1 health for trample purposes.

Genesis and Vigor are also amazing incarnations if you want to go that route

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa is an amazing wrath deterant. keep green open. they wrath? they also nuke their own lands.

goldlion I like the way your thinking, and plus it's so janky no one can hate it LOL!

Some instants and sorceries that you can benefit from hmm...off the top of my head you can go for a sub reanimator theme and I would like to go for the reusable ones. Here might be some cards that can help:

Regrowth, Oversold Cemetery, Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead, Athreos, God of Passage, Dawn of the Dead, Disturbed Burial, Dread Return, Golgari Guildmage, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Palace Siege, Phyrexian Reclamation, Debtors' Knell.

On the more expensive scale:

Reanimate, Necromancy, Corpse Dance, All Hallow's Eve, Genesis, Sheoldred, Whispering One.

@TwoHandTouch:

I've managed to scrounge around and put this deck together in paper. Here's what I've seen so far in the games I've played...

Planar Chaos is a bit hit and miss. It did counter a commander once and missed on a Farseek. I lost it on my turn at my first upkeep. Worth some more testing but I think it's not going to be good long term for this deck to have it.

Yisan and Great Oak Guardian deserve mention because I was able to combo off through a counter spell heavy cEDH tournament table with just Yisan on the field. I've found it to be a great include to fight through permission decks.

As for Great Oak Guardian specifically, it's worked beautifully. I've worked out the math to have my deck combo off of just Imperial Recruiter. Here's the line:

Imperial Recruiter --> Kiki-Jiki --> play Kiki and copy Recruiter --> Recruiter finds Fierce Empath --> Fierce Empath finds Great Oak Guardian.

The above line has worked wonders.

Also, dropping Xenagos prior to Obliterate or cycling Decree of Annihilation has spelled GG for opponents on more than one occasion. Xenagos helps to recover immensely.

Splinter Twin has also been a nice backup at times to Kiki-Jiki. But another unsung hero has been Genesis. At 3 mana, Genesis has been able to get Ramunap Excavator which has let me get back on my feet rather quickly.

You have not thought about adding Omnath, Locus of Mana to your deck, so that you can absorb the large amount of mana you produce after having Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger and Patron of the Orochi in play, or the one you are given by spells like Vernal Bloom or Zendikar Resurgent. You also have a good option to include Genesis or Colfenor's Urn to recover creatures without having to use Praetor's Counsel.

Greetings, if you want you can go through my cover, http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/omnath-locus-of-mana-controlaggro/

Phyresis seems weak, unless we look at some other options. Consider creatures with great abilities that would work with Phyresis and be great without it.

Here's something to consider, instead of Glorious Anthem effects what about more tools to make the deck more aggressive. Yes, +1/+1 for your creatures does help with the combat phase, but consider that you only need to attack for 10 points of 'damage'.
Here's some thing to look at:
Glory
Genesis
Brawn
Valor
Wonder
Fauna Shaman

True-Name Nemesis
Triskelion
Aven Mindcensor
Parallax Tide
Parallax Nexus
Gemstone Mine
Ash Barrens
Inkmoth Nexus
Reflecting Pool
Cascading Cataracts
Contagion Engine

Another attack vector:
Crucible of Worlds
Strip Mine
Exploration

Pretty expensive but worth it:
Prismatic Omen
Noble Hierarch
Bloom Tender
Mox Diamond
Survival of the Fittest

Spike Weaver has been great as a repeatable fog effect, especially with Genesis in the graveyard to return it to play. I definitely don't want to cut that one. I was thinking of maybe cutting Ulvenwald Hydra as it doesn't Trample and my main objective to winning is not through Combat anyway.

Profet93 I'm gonna assume you meant Snow-Covered Forest and not Plains :)

Thanks for your comments and suggestions. I appreciate hearing that people like my decks, expecially more fringe ones like this. You wouldn't believe how hard I am trying to get this deck noticed and upvoted... Mostly to no avail.

I was considering Survival of the Fittest, but wasn't sure I ran enough creatures to make the best use of it. Playing nicely with Genesis is pretty tight though.

My main concern with using Genesis Wave is that it could bin my precious Hurricane effects and cut me off from winning in that way.

Anyhow, Thanks for your comment. If you can, please remember to upvote as well :)

Hey there, I really like Rapacious One in my Xenagos deck, curves out of Xenagos, and sets you up to cast the real big stuff/multiple threats ( Worldspine, Giant Adephage, Balefire Dragon) after the table realises your going to kill them all.

I found that as my playgroup got used to getting hit for 30+ damage they began to lean heavily on wraths to try and stem the flow, so I began to shift to annoying, value beaters and recursion. Genesis regrows a creature at the low cost of 3 mana every turn, Vorapede is a fine beatstick without Xenagos, Feldon of the Third Path is an excellent way to get value out of your graveyard, too. Deadwood Treefolk was also surprisingly good, though it’s maybe outclassed by Greenwarden of Murasa, it still mashes in for 6 w/‘Gos out and blocks well. Eternal Witness is another option.

And Atarka, World Render, the “you take 24” cannon that gets better if you throw even a few extra dragons in ( Scourge of the Throne, Balefire, Dragon Broodmother produces a steady stream of chumps so you can swing freely each turn.

And Wolfir Silverheart for the casual 12/12 worth of power for 5 mana. Temur Battle Rage is an ace here too.
