This is really cool, I don't think I've ever seen this as a commander!

I hope that this could give you some things to think about!

Ooo, ooo, pick on me! I have an idea! Martyr's Bond could be decent if you wanted to go with that. Phyrexian Tower and Miren, the Moaning Well are some good sack outlets that are hard to remove since they are lands.

Ok--So here are a couple suggestions on lands--staples--if you will, that I include with this style deck/commander etc that I mentioned briefly above.

Fetchlands are great with Omnath and all of your creatures with Landfall like Avenger of Zendikar More the merrier. Some of the fetches have been reprinted, some haven't. So depending on the one you want, there could be a wide range in price. There are Budget equivalents like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse and Mountain Valley there's a couple others too. These traditionally aren't as good because they only get Basic lands and they come into play tapped. However, they get the job done on Landfall triggers should you need an option while you're waiting to upgrade to that Wooded Foothills this one, luckily, has been reprinted in Khans block I believe. It wouldn't be a bad idea to look at a few others while we were at it though. Windswept Heath might be good Blighted Woodland and Naya Panorama better or cheaper options for sure.

Color Balance: Nothing sucks more than drawing a bunch of one color mana--so lets even it out some with lands that tap for either color.
Rootbound Crag , Stomping Ground , Reflecting Pool , Command Tower , Raging Ravine Utility Lands: Maximize your land. Make it work for you.
Kessig Wolf Run , Rogue's Passage , Thespian's Stage , Miren, the Moaning Well , Temple of the False God , Skarrg, the Rage Pits
There are others--Tribal specific that are good-- Contested Cliffs for example would be good if you had more beasts or Primal Beyond if you had more Elementals.

Now-- I had thought about it some more since I commented earlier today and I have a few more suggestions. I'm just going to suggest the cards, I won't offer cuts at this time, because I'm not looking to change your deck completely, just give you some thoughts if you were wanting to tap into your Commander more or just be cool fun R/G beats deck etc. I'll leave that up to you. Happy to help in any way though.

Synergy: There are a few other cards that would work well with Omnath and I'll list here.
Solemn Simulacrum The Lonely Robot draws a card and gets you a land = Landfall trigger/ramp.
Scapeshift Cast this when you have Omnath and it could be awesome. Cast it with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle in play, and thats a lot of damage. Prismatic Omen Doesn't care what land you get--just saying.
Craterhoof Behemoth takes all those shiney new Elementals and/or Plant tokens from Avenger of Zendikar and makes them Big stompy.
Warstorm Surge I'll just leave this here.
Skyshroud Claim Yeah, in play.

About this one particular card:
Burst Lightning Ok, I do think you should probably swap this card with something that straight kills something gives you a little more versatility. Perhaps something like Atarka's Command or Decimate or Skullcrack or Beast Within or Banefire

Other EDH Staples and Protection:
Chromatic Lantern
Sol Ring
Quicksilver Amulet
Swiftfoot Boots
Lightning Greaves
Chord of Calling
Some other cards to save towards I guess.

I hope this helps. I rambled.

In most cases yes Utter End / Anguished Unmaking are better than Mortify . However, in this deck Mortify is better since it gives a death trigger. Martial Coup was something I was considering when I was building the deck, but I cut it for other cards.


Totally forgot about High Market and Miren, the Moaning Well , thanks!

I've thought about Oversold Cemetery , and Grave Pact is in the deck.

Thanks for the suggestions!

She has such an interesting Ability!

High Market , Miren, the Moaning Well are some I found that could give you more options to be able to sac creatures!

Also perhaps because you are tossing a few creatures in the yard Grave Pact could get you some value and so does Oversold Cemetery

Looks good for a first try! I don't know much about Heartless Hidetsugu, since I've only seen him played once, but I can tell you the one thing you're missing is a way for you to gain an odd amount of life and a way to ping your opponents for an odd amount of damage. You need to make sure they have an even life total and you have an odd life total when you activate Hidetsugu with a damage doubler. I recommend High Market and Miren, the Moaning Well , since you can activate them, sac'ing your commander with the ability on the stack, and Pristine Talisman . You're mono-colored, and this should slide into your manabase without having to give up much. Kumano, Master Yamabushi , Comet Storm , and Fireball are all ways to ping the way you like. I would also check out the page for Hidetsugu and the red staples page at EDHREC.

Great build!

Any thought to High Market or Miren, the Moaning Well, to sac your stolen critters?

Willow Satyr and/or Empress Galina could be nice backup for Rubinia.

It’s a little out there, but what about Titania's Song? I am not too knowledgeable about Wiccan culture, but transmuting artifacts into creatures has a folksy quality to it — something Gogol might write about.

I love the use of Traveler’s Cloak — it’s long been a pet card of mine.
