Fling in a deck, as a creature, in Magic in general, has always been a sweet spot for me. I love it.

Here are some seasoning suggestions to spice that baby up.

Ogre Battledriver - I'm aware Ball Lightning-type creatures don't need haste, but that +2 adds up quick.

Homura, Human Ascendant - Fling it, now everything is bigger and has evasion.

Ronin Warclub - Here you go Mr. Raging Elemental of Fiery Fury, have a club. Every time.

Grafted Wargear - Even better. Equipment without Equip costs feels like cheating.

Steelshaper's Gift - You're already running enough Equipment to justify it, plus these 2 I just mentioned.

Pandemonium - Risky, but better costed than Warstorm Surge.

Gift of Estates - Hitting those lands drops is very meaningful in colors that don't ramp.

Treasonous Ogre - Highly effective at fueling power plays. You're gaining tons of life anyway, right?

Gamble is on-point for the bad luck theme.

I see that Lifeline is already in your MaybeBoard. That effect is bonkers with sac-creatures.

All in all, a beautiful deck with power and personality. Bravo.

I actually cut Ogre Battledriver for Chandra, Flamecaller, but yeah it could be worth taking another look at that card over maybe the Ulvenwald Hydra

Hello fellow Omnath player!

Maybe consider the following: Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Oracle of Mul Daya, Exploration, Burgeoning, Ghost Town, Lotus Cobra, Ogre Battledriver, Parallel Lives, Doubling Season, Second Harvest, Song of the Dryads and Xenagos, God of Revels. Here is my adaption of an Omnath build.

Maybe it can give you a few ideas! Keep up the good work!

I was looking at the list, and going "Wow! This guy has the same languages I do for most of my cards! What are the odds?...wait." Heh.

Anyway! I think your largest problem here is evasion. I have flying and a flip-based boardwipe that acts as my push through blockers. You need more things that grant trample, like Loxodon Warhammer and friends. The double strike is handy (deathtouch is your friend!) but you need to manage to punch through for it to matter. This also suggests some degree of flying, perhaps.

Be aware of the fact that Sword of Fire and Ice prevents targeting from Bruse Tarl!

Honestly, you know most of my opinions already, heh. Your draw looks fine. Mycosynth Lattice is REALLY risky but might work here (just don't forget about an opponent's Vandalblast).

Your creatures seem a bit odd - Eldrazi Displacer is a bit odd here. Goblin Gaveleer seems bad. Knight of Glory IS bad. Ogre Battledriver seems more at home in a tokens build. Shimmer Myr seems just a bit unnecessary. Taj-Nar Swordsmith is overcosted, etc. Also, no Stonehewer Giant?

Overall, could use a smidge of tuning, but looks fine! :)
