Obsidian Fireheart

Creature — Elemental

1RR: Put a blaze counter on target land without a blaze counter on it. For as long as that land has a blaze counter on it, it has "At the beginning of your upkeep, this land deals 1 damage to you." (The land continues to burn after Obsidian Fireheart has left the battlefield.)

Why Arbor Elf? You have no "special" forests nor enchantments to boost mana in which to untap for extra gain. The mana dorks (and rocks) in general (except Smokebraider) seem odd additions due to Omnath wanting you to drop lands. Why not more instants/sorceries to put lands on the field? Early game they'll get you to Omnath faster and late game they make elementals. Mana dorks may accelerate in beginning but can get wiped away and are subpar late.

Pandemonium, Where Ancients Tread, and Warstorm Surge were favorites of mine in Omnath.

I'd highly suggest more protection for Omnath because he's a magnet for removal. Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Bear Umbra, Boar Umbra, Snake Umbra, Spider Umbra, Archetype of Endurance, Wrap in Vigor, or Resuscitate all help him stick around longer.

In my build I was all in on making tokens with him. 1/5 of the deck was ramp spells alone. Two of the few elementals I included was Obsidian Fireheart (his burn ability doesn't go away even if he does) and Liege of the Tangle (we're already going to have lots of lands so might as well let them smash face too).

Haste for your elementals to immediately hit is wise too (get some value now in case a wipe is coming). Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros (good w Titania too), Fires of Yavimaya, Concordant Crossroads or Mass Hysteria fit the bill.

Trample too so your 5/5s are just getting chumped by 0/1s: Nylea, God of the Hunt, Primal Rage, Thunderfoot Baloth and Overrun/Overwhelming Stampede fit the bill.

Hope something helped!

Basic Ass Bitch

Creature - Donkey Hound

Spend mana produced only by non-basic lands to cast Basic Ass Bitch.

Basic lands gain Uncomfortable (If an Uncomfortable land is tapped for mana, it produces 1/2 mana of whatever type it would add to your mana pool instead.)


"OMG, like, your house is like, totes adorbs. I love how you'll just like, live anywhere, you know?"

Maybe we'll see it in Unstable? Haha.

Since there was a bit of a sniped/hiccup earlier, I'll repeat my previous challenge: Make a white card that puts counters on lands to some effect (a la Obsidian Fireheart or the like)

Curse of the Deep

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant player

Whenever a Kraken, Leviathan, Merfolk, Octopus, or Serpent enters the battlefield, you may put a flood counter on target land controlled by enchanted player. As long as that land has a flood counter, it is an Island.

Whenever a Kraken, Leviathan, Merfolk, Octopus, or Serpent attacks enchanted player, it gains islandwalk until end of turn.

Make a white card that puts counters on lands to some effect (a la Obsidian Fireheart or the custom card above)

I'd nix the Magebane Armor for Sword of Fire and Ice. The only noncombat damage source you're worried about is red, and this adds more versatility.

Obsidian Fireheart is an okay card, but his damage triggers happen on other players turns, so it won't net you Mana. Stuffy Doll may fit better with all the quake spells.

I believe Howl of the Horde would be an upgrade to Reverberate.

Plate and greaves may let you abuse Fortune Thief. Might be maybeboard worthy, since you'll be nuking yourself with quake spells.

Ruination is inexpensive and can be more punishing than Blood Moon, but that effect is good enough to have both cards in a deck.

You'll be making a ton of mana. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth seems good. Prototype Portal and Mirari as well. Just more maybeboard stuff.

That's all for now, lemme know how it goes with your playgroup.

It occurred to me that I overlooked a sink for red mana - Obsidian Fireheart. I still don't think Neheb makes the cut though.
