Nissa, Vital Force
Planeswalker — Nissa
+1: Untap target land you control. Until your next turn, it becomes a 5/5 Elemental creature with haste. It's still a land.

Nissa, Vital Force Discussion

Parallel Lives is always good with a token pooping commander. I also think Nissa, Vital Force would be an excellent inclusion in this. She is relatively easy to get the emblem with, and then I think you would have a hard time running out of cards in hand.

The strength of cat tribal is in the number of 1/1 token cats (kittens) that are produced. Metallic Mimic and Regal Caracal then automatically give them +1/+1's, while Pride Sovereign just grows in stature.
To me there are 3 must-have components of a cat tribal deck:
Mana-ramp to be able to cast anything early in the game
Cards that boost the attack and defence of kittens
Sadly, I see only 1 of these elements in this deck, and cards that just don't seem to fit into the theme. I really don't understand why so many people want Oketra the True in a cat tribal deck - she does nothing for the kittens.
Metallic Mimic gives all kittens +1/+1, but in your deck is limited to 2?? With a host of kittens, Cryptolith Rite can provide a massive mana pool, but it is just missing?? Consider the following scenario:
2* Anointed Procession already on the field.... Summon a Pride Sovereign.... Declare an attack and exert your cat.... The Anointed Processions immediately generate 8 kittens.... Cast Second Harvest, generating 8 kittens, then Anointed Processions generate another 24.... When the attack goes through, you have a minimum of 40 kittens on the field, making Pride Sovereign a 42/42 creature with life-link.
This scenario will, however largely depend on what happened before. Embalm your Sacred Cat, generate kittens by casting Regal Caracal and then tap all your kittens for mana using Cryptolith Rite. For each Metallic Mimic or Regal Caracal on the field, you kittens grow teeth - you really want as many as possible.
If you can get the emblem from Nissa, Vital Force, you gain a lot of added card draw....etc.

I think the trick will be to get the emblem from Nissa, Vital Force. Ramunap Excavator and multiple Mina and Denn, Wildborn then allow you to repeatedly play Evolving Wilds from the grave. With a card draw for each landfall, draw away. Cryptolith Rite allows you to tap creatures for mana and Paradox Engine un-taps them all if you summon a creature.
I think that I would tend to focus on these combinations. I have made a version of your deck Lands Flood, which looks as if it could be a lot of fun to play.

@Zenaku17: I have been meaning to put Eternal Witness and Replenish in this deck. Maybe even Nissa, Vital Force. I don't really care about enchantment recursion, all of my friends in my play group have a tendency not to run a lot if any removal for it and in most situations thy'd be dead cards. I don't like situational cards especially if they're not in my meta. No offense, but I think Riftsweeper is a terrible waste of a slot in commander. If I'm at such a loss from one exile effect in my commander deck that i need to take up the 99 on a worthless creature just to get it back (maybe, I mean it doesn't even put it into your hand) in that rare situation, I don't feel like my deck is properly completed or running well.

realBorborygmos, thank you for the +1. We are so close to hitting the 100 upvote milestone. Very exciting! Go team Gruul!
Bassmaster, I've always looked at Rite of the Raging Storm as an addition to Omnath, but always overlooked it for something else. I guess all it took was for your recommendation to really push for the addition. Thanks! As for the suggested protection cards, I'll keep them on the back burner for now. Great suggestions, nonetheless.
Vayder84, I had Nissa, Vital Force in a previous version and decided to replace her for Nissa, Worldwaker. I like them both very much for this deck, but I've enjoyed very much so turning my fetchlands into 4/4 elementals and then sacrificing them to bolt an opponent or creature.
Sgtpopnfreash, it's a done deal! Lotus Cobra is back in the mix. I'm still on the fence on including Elemental Mastery again. I'll keep it in mind for the meantime, as well as Spitebellows, Life's Legacy and your shared suggestion with DrValium for Impact Tremors. Thank you both for your suggestions!
benjameenbear7, I am actually in the process of putting together a prototype version of another Omnath build that includes land destruction and will also feature such cards as Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon. As for Wildfire and Destructive Force they could really add some spice to that build. As for this build, I am considering on adding both Mana Crypt and/or Mana Vault at some point in the near future.
Jitsrotu, I was sitting on Life from the Loam in the past. Especially anytime I would have Crucible of Worlds in play. Now I have Ramunap Excavator included, I don't find it too necessary to have as of now. As for Boundless Realms it usually does good work in this deck. Though I'm not going to lie, I have had thoughts on replacing it for Genesis Wave but for now it remains.

Nissa, Vital Force Would be a great card for any Omnath deck. If you are lucky you can ALt her by her second turn. Landfall triggers out the wazoo.

Was a little surprised to see Krosan Grip come out; I actually had to include reclamation sage in addition to Krosan Grip in my deck because 2 people in my meta play Stranglehold - that card absolutely HOSES this deck.
I see why you're removing Nissa, Vital Force.. she's really only useful for the ultimate - if the game goes long enough that I need her to get stuff from my graveyard, that's not a good thing.
Kavu Lair definitely had to go ;) Too helpful to other people.
Boseiju, Who Shelters All is a solid add, Omnath is definitely a target for counters..
I live the reinclusion of Avenger of Zendikar
Love the deck! Mostly when you get 10 or so elementals out with Omnath and a sac outlet and no-one wants to make eye contact with you ("please don't bolt me to death!")
