Lotus Cobra Discussion

I see. That's my problem with Omnath as well, bounce wipes to be specific. I was looking into this so I look that bad of a threat in my meta, bec Omnath usually gets a lot of hate.
The problem is I don't have the pieces like Lotus Cobra, Crucible of Worlds, the big cards, and lands to make it as effective as possible. And you're right, the combo falls apart without the pieces, it just returns to the usual Gruul stompy deck.
I figured if I'm gonna be a stompy Gruul, I'll just stick with Omnath for now. I do appreciate your insights, bec if it wasn't for it, I would've just made a not so effective Mina and Denn stomp deck. I do hope more people in your LGS start playing EDH though! Would love to see how it works more on multiplayer, this would make a fun story.

I have a deck called The Multiplicity of Snakes, and I've been messing around with it IRL, taking a look at that may give you an idea, but as far as ramp, you have a nice selection of options to choose from, Lotus Cobra + Sakura-Tribe Elder + Sakura-Tribe Scout are the ramp cards I've been testing with, (although the current state of the decklist does not include Lotus Cobra, its still pretty lit) those three cards alone serve as a very nice amount of ramp for your bigger creatures, and you don't have to use all three to be efficient. As far as applying -1/-1 counters, I've been racking my brain trying to figure out the most efficient method to go about it, and I too use Splendid Agony, but one card that is always going to be great for a deck like this is Black Sun's Zenith, not only a clutch board wipe if needed, it can generate a massive number of tokens, provided the occasion calls for it. Hopefully this helped some

I really want to build this, the three cards I'm considering that I don't see in your list are Nest Invader, Cryptolith Rite, and on your maybe board Lotus Cobra just to get Warpworld out as quickly as possible. My only question is what happens if you don't draw warpworld until turn 5 or 6? Do you just die? I know with elves and merfolk and death's shadow and such ilk you usually won't make it past turn 4 or 5 without your combo card.

Spoosky I appreciate your suggestions, I have had Parallel Lives in the deck before, along with Boundless Realms, however playing them I found them to under perform in high power games, most Because the former usually gets blown up by my next upkeep and the latter doesn't hit many lands by the time I wish to cast it reasonably with Omnath in play.
Craterhoof behemoth is now in the deck, I just haven't updated it. I will later in the week though ~
K34 I also appreciate your suggestions! I've since had my eye on Harvest Season and managed to grab one during prerelease. Cryptolith Rite doesn't make the cut, simply because Earthcraft does everything it can, plus more.

I am always willing to help new and established deckbuilders evolve and finetune their decks. Mana ramp I see you mention it. Let me point our a few great options that could improve your ramp:
If you need more help on this deck or any other Commander project, then give me a headsup on my wall :) Just click my name and post something on there.
It is always great to recieve an upvote on my favourite deck, which you can see here. Just click the 'Upvote' button on the left if you like what you see.
Enjoy the game!

I felt like Black Sun's Zenith was very strong for this deck, but a little more situational seeing how I wont always need a board wipe, but at the same time its extremely good in flooding even if I already have a number of snake tokens out, that would be directly replaced with more snake tokens. And to the Lotus Cobra I just felt that Sakura-Tribe Elder + Sakura-Tribe Scout were better for their slots, but I know its a very strong card.
And I never claimed this was best snakes in modern, just hoping to get it there lol Thank you for the suggestions!
