Life from the Loam Discussion
9 hours ago
Burgeoning isn't super pricey these days. Might not mesh well with Gitrog unless you can keep your hand full though. I know you said you want to keep this budget but a Life from the Loam would really be worth it in my opinion. Retreat to Hagra would be mean with the mad landfall too. I like what your deck does though.

Other recommendations I have (I know, I should seriously stop, haha) are:
- Timepiece lets you get more self mill, but can respond to Bojuka Bog-effects, whereas Elixir is really only used in response to GY hate
- Might be good, as it can fetch up and immediately put out Mike & Trike
- Paired with Life from the Loam there are no drawbacks
- Could be good, if you have money to throw around (mainly referring to you, Demonic Tutor and Yawgmoth's Will...)
- Both provide levels of stax effects that could be incredibly useful, plus Smokestack, itself, is somewhat of a sac outlet that could help to add experience counters if needed
Board wipe after playing him, sac one of your creatures, he survives then potentially takes out one player in one swing
Additionally, he's just good and can be used as a sac outlet too
+1 for the name, description, and song. And again, I am terribly sorry for all of this and I will leave you alone now, haha.

Not to mention just copy-ing the best thing my opponents are playing (especially if it draws me cards).
And if there was any doubt. I cast Hour of Promise in both games I played with the deck last night. I won them both fairly easily. I also kept a hand with 6 lands and an Exploration in the first game. I proceeded to draw Azusa and Life from the Loam... It was... not fun for anyone expect me.

realBorborygmos, thank you for the +1. We are so close to hitting the 100 upvote milestone. Very exciting! Go team Gruul!
Bassmaster, I've always looked at Rite of the Raging Storm as an addition to Omnath, but always overlooked it for something else. I guess all it took was for your recommendation to really push for the addition. Thanks! As for the suggested protection cards, I'll keep them on the back burner for now. Great suggestions, nonetheless.
Vayder84, I had Nissa, Vital Force in a previous version and decided to replace her for Nissa, Worldwaker. I like them both very much for this deck, but I've enjoyed very much so turning my fetchlands into 4/4 elementals and then sacrificing them to bolt an opponent or creature.
Sgtpopnfreash, it's a done deal! Lotus Cobra is back in the mix. I'm still on the fence on including Elemental Mastery again. I'll keep it in mind for the meantime, as well as Spitebellows, Life's Legacy and your shared suggestion with DrValium for Impact Tremors. Thank you both for your suggestions!
benjameenbear7, I am actually in the process of putting together a prototype version of another Omnath build that includes land destruction and will also feature such cards as Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon. As for Wildfire and Destructive Force they could really add some spice to that build. As for this build, I am considering on adding both Mana Crypt and/or Mana Vault at some point in the near future.
Jitsrotu, I was sitting on Life from the Loam in the past. Especially anytime I would have Crucible of Worlds in play. Now I have Ramunap Excavator included, I don't find it too necessary to have as of now. As for Boundless Realms it usually does good work in this deck. Though I'm not going to lie, I have had thoughts on replacing it for Genesis Wave but for now it remains.

Here's my version

I agree that Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon should be added. How does Boundless Realms work for you? It was too slow for me and I never had enough basics left in the deck to make it worth it. I also think you should main deck Life from the Loam. Too powerful to pass up especially with fetch lands.

Dakmor Salvage. If you dredge and hit a land, you can do the dredge again.

Though I truly like Buried Alive and Jarad's Orders, I'm very reluctant to add more tutors to the deck. Mostly because it already contains quite a few of them, as well as the incredible effective Hermit Druid and Life from the Loam that allow self-mill AND a plethora of ways to draw additional cards.
I'd like a Walking Ballista, but I don't have one and obtaining one at this time in my country is next to impossible (no retailer has had it in stock for months).
