VexenX on [[Primer v1.0]]-Omnath, the Angry Wet Jelly Bean!

3 weeks ago

Guerte: I dont think I'm nearly cool enough to use a rap pun lol. Anger Wet Jellybean is kinda lame, but I guess it works for now.. What do you think about the deck? It was a reflex build, so idk if I cracked the nut on this commander yet..

GeminiSpartanX: you might be right about Genesis . Although I am not looking to reanimate here, bring able to pull key cards out for the grave to I can get more ETBs might not be a bad idea!

JohnMichaelBushman: I think wizards has to at this point! I this Five-Color Omnath called Omnath, Locus of the Leylines might be really cool and flavorful. In his effort to restore the mana on Zendikar he taps into the colors of each Leylines and becomes their controller! The fact that M20 has each Leyline in it might be a foreshadow! I dont know what he would do though, what do you think?

Thank you for those who UPVOTED! If you haven't, please do! It helps get viability on the deck and I could use the feedback. Thanks!

Would Genesis be a good inclusion in this deck to buy back evoked elementals? Just throwing an idea around.

This mono green EDH deck is well out of date and I could use some help updating it to not only be legal but competitive

I feel like the base of the deck is still pretty strong and it only needs a few minor updates here and there, so any and all inputs would be greatly appreciate.

Asus, lost but seeking

I would replace Garruk's Packleader with Beast Whisperer .He costs one mana less and works with all creatures not only the strong.

I think Dragonlair Spider fits in very well with your commander's theme.

Your temperatures are usually very expensive (because they are strong) so I would add a little more ramp and maybe something to get them back from the cemetery. The two cards I can imagine with you thereby quite well: Genesis or Traverse the Outlands

Also I like the idea of dragonb0y777 pretty much

Never really been a fan of Filth, but Genesis is an option along with Anger for sure!

Love the concept! gota couple suggestions, figured I'll accordian them to keep from filling up the whole page.

Predator, Flagship is costly, but lets be honest - mono-green doesn't care about that. giving flight for troops to evade or block, anti-aircraft cannons, and the tractor beam to lift up enemy ground-pounders, this colorless removal engine is worth evey mana spent on it.

Arena + Combat step: Declare attackers. Before blockers, activate arena, Choosing one of your tapped attacking creatures. the creature picks a fight before blockers, potentially giving a 2-1 for you if they block afterwards, but otherwise taking out a blocker and still getting all their damage through.

Genesis is amazing for recusion, if that's your thing (I know it's mine, but not everyone elses), and it's a 3 drop if you hard cast it with Her fluffiness on the field.

Trolls of Tel-Jilad offers regen for your forces (or allies, in exchange for favors...)

Krosan warchief acts like a mini trolls of T-J for beasts, and reduces their cost as well. more a niche card, but worth mentioning if you end up going that route.

Weatherseed Treefolk is fragile, but returns to hand when killed.

Phytotitan is even more fragile, but returns for free

Masked Admirers is a card drawing chump blocker. while it doesn't get the cost reduction, it definatly will dish out the damage over a game with trades. and the card draw for ETB is icing on the cake.

Gurzigost is a wierd huge guy that smashes face, all for the low low cost of ... recycling your graveyard. oh no... /endsarcasm

Ulvenwald Hydra grows based on your land base, and fetches a land as an etb trigger. added bonus: has reach to deal with fliers.

Oran-Reif Hydra grows to monstrous sizes as the game progresses. not all that exciting, but cheap ($ wise)

Dungrove Elder is completely worth the G mana cost once you hit 4 lands, and will only get bigger as the game goes on.

Terra Stomper , Carnage Tyrant , Chameleon Colossus , Kodama of the North Tree , Kalonian Behemoth , Gaea's Revenge , and Ancient Ooze just do what they normally do with efficiency: smash. they aren't pretty or fancy, but they are cost efficient before your general's discount, so they smash hard for cheap.

Skysnare Spider has the two most important keywords for green multiplayer: vilgilance and reach

Hydra Omnivore lets you get damage through defenses of players by ignoring that player entirely and focusing elswhere.

Indrik Stomphowler and Conclave Naturalists might be good replacements for reclaimation sage, with you commander out they cost the same. Destructor Dragon acts the same on death, but hits planeswalkers and lands as well.

Woodfall Primus is a solid (abet later game) removal that returns to work again.

World Breaker acts as an exile, and is colorless to boot. added benefits are reach and recurrable.

Wickerbough Elder gets the cost reduction, despite being a 3/3 base when cast.

Cloudthresher acts a a Squall for 4, with a 7/7 reach attached to it.

Tornado Elemental will usually act as a mini Whirlwind , and comes in as a 6/6 Thorn Elemental . not cheap mana-wise, but typically less than $.50

Wolfbriar Elemental lets you dump green into a token army of 2/2s if you need to spread out the love or create some chump blockers. quantity has it's own quality sometimes.

Vorapede is a undying buggy with vigilance for 3 when your general is out

Thornling is a solid all-round stomper that is hard to deal with, via indistructable and increasable toughness.

Thrun, the Last Troll is another hard to deal with threat: hexproof, uncounterable, and regenerate means not a whole lot can touch him.

Spearbreaker Behemoth can act as a duribility booster by giving indistructibility

Krosan Drover is a good card for the really expensive creatures, giving another cost reduction.

Ulvenwald Observer is a solid card-draw engine for the deck when things die

Nessian Game Warden lets you sift through your deck based on forests in play

Ripjaw Raptor lets you draw off of combat (and even more off Arena )

Silverglade Elemental is a 4/4 Wood Elves with your general in play.

Brooding Saurian is typically just a sideboard card against control matchups, but worth mentioning all the same.

Stone-Tongue Basilisk is a cheap ($ wise) little guy that can field-wipe an opponent if you time a swing right.

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa should go in every green deck that he can. this goes double for mono-green. Overrun as an repeatable instant? check. wrath countermeasures? Living Plane that only hits opponents for G per land. totally worth it.

Hey, I agree Scion of the Ur-Dragon seems like a good Commander for your deck idea.

The Star Dragons have dies abilities this makes them quite good to repeatedly reanimate with Nim Deathmantle and sac with sac outlets such as Ashnod's Altar . Feldon of the Third Path can repeatedly make a token copy of a Dragon you put into your graveyard with Scion. The token is saced at the end this will trigger the die ability of a Star Dragon. Teneb, the Harvester has a powerful trigger, to repeatedly reanimate Dragons you put into your graveyard.

Bladewing the Risen when it ETB (enters the battlefield) can also reanimate a Dragon which you can take advantage of with Feldon (token copies ETB) or Deathmantle. Buried Alive , Faithless Looting , Animate Dead , Unburial Rites , Anger , Fauna Shaman , Genesis and Karmic Guide are some very good semi-budget support cards for a five color graveyard strategy with Dragons. To help the five color manabase I think you can just splash blue. Blue is the color that's least needed with Dragons or graveyard strategies mostly just need it for Scion.
