Mina and Denn, Wildborn Discussion

Super cool that you got to the 100% competitive mark, but that being said you are making some decision that are in my opinion crucial mistakes. That fact that you leave Crucible of Worlds out is something I don't understand. Crucible is the engine in any omnath deck, especially combined with things like fetches. You can keep going and going and going, basically every fetch is a recurring ramp spell that you can play for nothing. Creating 2 tokens, that can hit or be sacrificed for damage. It is truly insane and often the card that will win you the game. Supported by Titania, Protector of Argoth you have another win con.
Even if you dont play crucible or the ramunap, scapeshift is basically a win if you played Avenger of Zendikar the turn before.
That being said you are truly in a very good direction, but to make the deck competitive (again the tapped out meter doesnt say that much) you need to focus it more. And omnath is all about dropping lands, everything else doesnt matter. You dont play interaction with anything on the board. Enchantment/Artifact is for the weak. You play player removal with omnath, someone drops something threathening? Here is 15 elementals in your face, sac them all and divide 45 damage to kill another player off. Fastest I won with my build is turn 4. (was a god hand but still). Often I drag multiplayer games in around turn 6-7.
I do agree with you on Nissa, Vital Force She can be underwhelming and with cards like Greater Good and Perilous Forays you have better card draw then her. The only thing that helps her is that her +1 is powerfull since she can protect herself for one turn and then ult. Right now I play Altar of Dementia , often I have around 15-20 elementals, wich means I can Swing/Sac/Mill almost 3 players out of the game in one go. But she might find her way back in, or Greenwarden of Murasa but that would mostly be for the recursion.
Also: Oracle of Mul Daya , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Lotus Cobra , Mina and Denn, Wildborn are crucial in any land matters deck. Cause they keep the land drop engine going and often one of these give you a turn 4 omnath.
My build is basically the top deck on tapped out with a few cards changed regarding my meta. Omnath, Locust of Rage-deck. Hopefully it will help you a bit.

For moving more towards a Lands Matters theme, which like I said is where I think you wanna be...
- Crucible of Worlds

- Rampaging Baloths
- Lotus Cobra
- Realms Uncharted
- Mina and Denn, Wildborn
- Titania, Protector of Argoth
- Wayward Swordtooth
- Amulet of Vigor This definitely needs to be in there.
- 2 More lands of any kind ( Cabal Coffers , and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth )
Sorry it's just Gates doesn't translate as well to EDH because you can only have the 12 or so gates.

Thanks for the suggestions KayneMarco!
I've tried Wayward Swordtooth for a long time in the deck but it consistently ended up being less impressive than any of the other ramp creatures as it ended up doing very little early game (unable to block or attack) and late game was just as impactful (a lot of creatures bigger than a 5/5). A short time ago it was cut from the deck and since then I haven't felt any significant degradation to how it plays.
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen has been on the radar for a long time, however I think that he represents too much of a threat in terms of board politics, and doesn't represent an impactful or game-winning threat upon resolution like say an Omnath, Locus of Rage or the utility of a Borborygmos Enraged . The threat density of the deck is a little light so I'll give it a try at a later date if Squandered Resources doesn't work out.
Mina and Denn, Wildborn do seem to naturally work well with any creature large enough to really make the trample aspect important, but this deck doesn't really play any of those kinds of threats reliably. I imagine it works well in concert with Ob Nixilis, the Fallen . My issue is that unlike the other impactful ramp creatures (such as Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Oracle of Mul Daya or Lotus Cobra ) the secondary ability doesn't really shine. That said it potentially allows you to replay Glacial Chasm multiple times to reset counters and protect it at instant speed from removal, so I'll give it some more thought and revisit that one soon.

The only things I would change to the deck is to add Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Ob Nixilis, the Fallen and move the Wayward Swordtooth to your mainboard. Ob nixilis is a game changer if opponents can’t get rid of him.

Hey, interesting version of Omnath, I really like the deck name :)
Budget cards ($5 or less each) that I think can help your deck to consider adding:
- Cinder Glade : dual land to tutor for with Farseek, Lore, Claim, Spoils, etc.
- Sheltered Thicket : same as Glade.
- Stomping Ground : same as Glade, only nonbudget card I'm suggesting.
- Jund Panorama : budget fetch land.
- Naya Panorama
- Horn of Greed : draw cards when lands ETB.
- Elemental Bond : draw cards when Beasts or Elementals are created, etc.
- Greater Good : sac Elementals to draw and do damage to opponents.
- Sol Ring : one of the best cards in Commander helps to ramp into Omnath.
- Fierce Empath : budget tutor for Avenger, Rampaging, Liege, etc.
- Signal the Clans : same as Empath, but an instant.
- Nissa, Vital Force : repeatable effects for lands; makes a land an attacker with haste, recur a land or any other permanent card, fast ultimate draw when lands ETB.
- Ramunap Excavator : play lands from your graveyard good with Wilds, Expanse, Panoramas, etc.
- Lotus Cobra : good mana ramp with all the land ramp spells.
- Llanowar Scout : play a land from your hand.
- Mina and Denn, Wildborn : budget more play additional lands per turn.
- Courser of Kruphix : play lands from the top of your library.
- Nature's Lore : tutor for a dual land and put it onto the battlefield.
- Rampant Growth
- Circuitous Route : another Explosive Vegetation .
- Beast Within : permanent removal.
- Chaos Warp
Cards to consider cutting:
- Scourge of Geier Reach
- Taurean Mauler
- Tyrant of Discord
- Elfhame Sanctuary
- Gruul War Chant
- Argentum Armor
- Lay of the Land
- Sprouting Vines
- Map the Wastes
- Untamed Wilds
- Natural Connection
- Retreat to Kazandu
- One with Nature
- Seer's Sundial
Good luck with your deck.

Moonveil Dragon can be heavily abused. I can't think of a lot of gruul activated abilities matter creatures..but if you can divine up some more..the instant speed plays of abilities with doubled mana will serve you well.
Savageborn Hydra being able to dump mana into this and swing can delete someone without blockers or just trample on through if you have a fieldwide trample effect
Magus of the Candelabra is a must
