Here are some ideas :) Copy Ruric's 6 damage ability using Rings of Brighthearth or Strionic Resonator. Gratuitous Violence would double the 6 damage if you can find the red mana? Have some creatures like Loam Dryad which can tap Ruric down and prevent him from attacking if necessary. Check out creatures with the 'Bloodrush' ability, as it is strong in these colours and you can cast it from your hand as an (instant) activated ability rather than a spell. Stranglehold will give you some control over the combo decks. Lastly if you want some mayhem try Possibility Storm hehe

no Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots to protect your commander? Frontier Siege would be good since you would not lose your mana pool Patron of the Orochi, Carpet of Flowers, Loam Dryad, Citanul Hierophants, Cryptolith Rite, Deconstruct, Elemental Resonance. just some thoughts that could help. also as brutal as omnath is i feel elf tribal or elves and druids would make him even more brutal there are so many ways with them to put mana into your mana pull and fast because they are so cheap.

Hey, sorry I didn't answer your request about dryads yet, I just couldn't find the time. If I were to build dryad tribal, I'd try something GW. There aren't that many enchantment synergies among the dryads, but I think I'd go with somtething like this:

Lands: 24 (however this part will look)

Creatures: 27

4x Dryad Militant

4x Loam Dryad

4x Leafcrown Dryad

3x Silverglade Pathfinder

3x Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage

4x Oakheart Dryads

3x Trostani, Selesnya's Voice

2x Chorus of the Conclave

Other spells: 9

4x Rancor

3x Benefaction of Rhonas

2x Cream of the Crop

This is a pretty rough draft though...there definitely is missing removal, and some more token production for trostani's populate ability seems necessary. But as a starting point, it seems fitting. What do you think?

Appeal / Authority and Loam Dryad seems like they could help out.

I haven't made a sideboard yet so I'm open to any suggestions there, trespassers curse seems fine against a super Agro deck to drain a little and gain some life back. But T2 and 3 are the most important and I don't want to give up a mainboard spot for that. I will look at the HOU deserts though. As for Torment of Scarabs, the main way of winning is pumping in 10-15 mana into a Torment of Hailfire. I can't take it out. I like Loam Dryad more because I tap two creatures, triggering throne or market lookout, for any mana. Naga vitalist is conditional, plus a turn late

Have you considered Torment of Scarabs in place of Torment of Hailfire? I prefer Naga Vitalist to Loam Dryad (who wants to tap 2 creatures for 1 mana?), although you could consider dropping to 3-of as they only play a role in the early game before you get out a Cryptolith Rite. One card that I would, at least, have in my side-board is Trespasser's Curse. Some of the HOU Desert lands may add another element.
