I mean, so with regards to self-mill Cephalid Vandal is a card I've been impressed with. Dredge creatures like Golgari Grave-Troll and Stinkweed Imp are also good to consider in addition to your Life from the Loam .

The biggest bonus of being in green is the color's access to one-mana mana dorks. Llanowar Elves , Elves of Deep Shadow , Birds of Paradise , Deathrite Shaman , Fyndhorn Elves and Elvish Mystic are all cards to consider. Simply being able to play a turn or so faster can make all the difference in the world. Similarly, Priest of Titania and Bloom Tender are great dorks, though being two mana does put them second-tier.

I've generally found that, in EDH, replacing 1-for-1s with 2-or-more-for-1s is a good idea. Force of Vigor is a new card I've been considering for my decks, and I think it's strictly better than Naturalize .

Have you considered Reanimate ? I notice that you aren't running it -- I think it's probably the best reanimation spell there is.

With the recent printings of enemy talismans, I don't think running Dimir Signet , Simic Signet and Golgari Signet is where you want to be. Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Creativity and Talisman of Resilience are less awkward to use and cost the same.

Unless I'm missing some targeted spells in your list, I think Lightning Greaves is better than Swiftfoot Boots .

Mana Confluence and City of Brass are important sources of colored mana once you're at 3+ colors. Additionally, fetch lands are at a premium. Though the Onslaught and Zendikar fetches can cost the same as a used kidney, slow fetches ( Grasslands , Rocky Tar Pit , Bad River , Flood Plain and Mountain Valley ) work as well and are WAY easier on the wallet.

You may want to get more card-draw in your list, too. Grim Flowering and Nature's Resurgence seem powerful in a creature-heavy list based around self-mill, but classic draw spells like Painful Truths , Thirst for Knowledge , Night's Whisper , Chart a Course , Ponder , Preordain and Fact or Fiction are also really strong here. I like that you're already running Windfall -- most people forget that card for some reason; it's like, REALLY good. Brainstorm is another card to consider, but it only becomes good with a lot of shuffle effects (see the aforementioned fetch lands).

I gotta go to work. Good luck man!

I did a bit of reserch to double check my knoledge and i was wrong acording to lore they did not meet it was just ajani and sarkhan.

They all did seperatly fight against Nicol Bolas.

The Rakdos guild does not necessarily represent all red black combination, just the red black on ravnica so it could be political.

about the omnath deck, I would build it slightly different a couple of your bombs slots i think would be better as synergy slots instead.

My recomendations

  • Allosaurus Rider

  • Hope of Ghirapur

  • Verdurous Gearhulk

  • Wolfbriar Elemental

  • Hall of Triumph

  • Rites of Flourishing (you have two on the list)

  • a couple of lands

  • the 3 basic land fetches you have in your mana base swap them for other lands. the idea of deck thinning does not work on this scale.

-Xantid Swarm

-Primal Growth

a couple more pieces of protection for omnath

Ill continue to look but these are the initial changes id make

I really like Sylvan Safekeeper as a replacement for Lightning Greaves - I'm a bit sad that Sylvan Safekeeper is a $115 foil however. If Titania, Protector of Argoth is out and you have Splendid Reclamation in hand.. brutal - add Omnath, Locus of Rage into the mix - total blowout.

May want to consider more cards that help you survive until late game and deal with opponents threats without hurting your own. Cards like Earthquake can be a one sided board wipe in many situations, and it ca be used as early as turn 2. Would also recommend cards like Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots for protection and possibly haste to get a combo out early. Also, a card like Fist of Suns could work to help with your mana issues seeing as mana selection doesn't seem to be a huge problem, and if you're having trouble getting the right mana, playing Curse of Opulence on the most dangerous player or even yourself if you are being targeted can make casting your spells for almost free incredibly easy. Lemme know whatcha think of these suggestions :).

Mask of Avacyn for Lightning Greaves . Depending on your playgroup you might want to cut Blightsteel Colossus . Also add maybe at least 7 Mountains

Lightning Greaves is the low hanging fruit here. Other than that it's still equipment like Whispersilk Cloak , Mask of Avacyn , Champion's Helm , and Darksteel Plate .

edit Beat to the punch.
