Omnath, Locus of Mana Discussion

Teleshar on Who Needs Creatures Anyways?

If you want more stories, I shall grant them to you.

After all, it's my new favorite EDH deck, so I've played it a few times and I can recall my last game quite well.

I was playing against three opponents, the same people as before, but with different decks this time. One was Arcanis the Omnipotent, one was Riku of Two Reflections and one was Omnath, Locus of Mana. I was prepared for the hate that would come towards me, especially from the mono blue deck - I automatically assume a ton of counterspells from those.

My starting hand was pretty decent - I didn't have many lands, but I had Sol Ring, so I felt okay. Arcanis had a pretty amazing ramp engine - he played Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Everflowing Chalice with three counters on his turn 2, which made everyone worried. I played a Propaganda early, but my opponents' decks weren't exactly creature decks, so nobody really attacked anyone. Except for Omnath later on. Arcanis cast Day's Undoing pretty early, which I could counter with Insidious Will, but I decided not to - I was pretty stuck on lands.

The stuff I drew was pretty good, but in the meantime, Omnath became a threat as well. His commander was rapidly growing and he started bashing Arcanis. In fact, his Omnath grew so big it could probably kill Arcanis with the next attack. I cast Fervor, preparing for the Narset turn. I also drew Strionic Resonator thanks to Day's Undoing, so it was looking pretty great for me.

However, Omnath became extremely threatening all of a sudden. He killed Arcanis with a 13/13 Omnath. Arcanis flashed in Snapcaster Mage to chumpblock, but Omnath cast Berserk from Mosswort Bridge's Hideaway. Then he used all of his gathered mana in the postcombat main phase, ramping up even more, playing Brittle Effigy and Yeva, Nature's Herald, among a few other things.

Now that Arcanis was out of the game, I could safely cast Narset, since Riku was tapped out. I attacked Riku and the trigger revealed Command Tower, Walk the Aeons, Spectra Ward and Conqueror's Flail. Brilliant.

My bonus turn begins. I cast Steel of the Godhead on Narset, then I equip her with Conqueror's Flail. With Boros Charm in my hand, I am able to give her double strike and finish Riku off. The trigger reveals Chandra, the Firebrand, Izzet Signet, Ashling's Prerogative and Sunder. Knowing that Omnath is a land-based deck, I don't hesitate to cast Sunder. On Omnath's turn, nothing happens because he has no mana, so he plays a Forest and passes the turn.

On my turn, I copy Narset's trigger with Strionic Resonator, revealing eight spells. One of them is Omniscience, which allows me to cast my huge hand for free. I play Temporal Trespass, Tamiyo, the Moon Sage, Elspeth, Knight-Errant and many other things. On my bonus turn, I buff Narset with Elspeth and swing for victory.

Once again, just one attack caused a hugely explosive turn. Omnath decided not to attack me because of my Propaganda, and instead aimed for Arcanis - because he had a ton of mana. In fact, he later told us that if he could have had another turn, he would've won the game on that turn, so Omnath prevented that. Which allowed me to take the win instead. Nonetheless, it was a fun game, at least for me. :)

I love this deck so much.

Looks like Overwhelming Stampede and Overrun might be good additions here. Omnath, Locus of Mana, Centaur Omenreader, and Lifecrafter's Bestiary also seem like they should get a spot

Hey I'm a very big fan of Sachi edh so I thought I'd give some suggestions. I use Paradox Engine is a must have and it explains itself. Planar Bridge is a nice touch if your making a lot of mana to use it. If your running the snake support Ambush Viper is a good addition. Omnath, Locus of Mana gets very big very fast and Karametra's Acolyte gets it there even faster. Lastly a common problem I find with Sachi is that once she leaves the board you get slowed down a ton because your ramp is gone Harvest Season and creatures like Elvish Mystic would make getting Sachi back on the board easier. I like the enchantment theme you have going and I hope this helps you out

I do hope The Professor's prediction comes true, I never was playing magic at the time of Dominara even though I do know a lot of the lore now.

I never got to play with slivers early on. I only discovered slivers about 3 years ago (Started magic at around Journey into Nyx and mainly played with a lot of theros stuff first) when I had a friend who happened to have some m14 slivers and I one day I traded for some such as a Galerider Sliver and 2 much older Russian Sidewinder Slivers who he originally got from someone else I think. I didn't even know at the time that there was more older ones but I found these interesting and wanted the ones he had.

Later on when where I lived actually got a game store that opened and had started to doing Fnms had I found out from two people the format of commander who both owned Sliver Overlord edh decks that there were more slivers. At this point I was practically already playing with a commander deck lol, as my casual magic deck was a deck featuring cards like Prophet of Kruphix, Heroes' Bane, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Horizon Chimera, and a bunch of other things. This became later my first commander deck with Vorel of the Hull Clade (Now it's an Atraxa, Praetors' Voice deck with Vorel still in it btw) and I started to also plan a Sliver Overlord deck.

One of the two I mentioned at my lgs even in time decided to sell his sliver overlord deck because he never got to play it enough, so I traded for some older slivers like Sinew Sliver, Brood Sliver, Fungus Sliver, and a couple others he had. He however wanted to keep Sliver Legion, Sliver Queen, Sliver Overlord and Sliver Hivelord.

I have my own Sliver Overlord, and Sliver Hivelord now but I still need to in time buy the others. Then I got to acquire some of the lands to finish my deck. I regret earlier trades that I have done however, use to have a Wooded Foothills, Windswept Heath,Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Steam Vents and Temple Garden but I traded them all away thinking I wouldn't need them, and I sure was very wrong. It was rather silly of me still being new to the game sort of then.

Like I even opened at one point a Windswept Heath expedition not knowing it's entire value but I sleeved it still because they looked nice. I later discovered and sold it for store credit at a store and bought a bunch of cards with it like Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, I think you get the point. All these big splashy cards to go into my casual magic decks to use on my friends. Then I later when I started playing magic a bit more seriously it rather sucked to realize I had no use for them in standard or modern or wanted to use them for edh any longer. That store even had Sliver Legion and Sliver Queen but I didn't yet know about slivers :(

Going to now anyways buy them next once I first open a bunch of Amonkhet for standard stuff perhaps. Although it would be nice to see a reprint for the Sliver Legion. The next set after Amonkhet however though has turned out to be one called Ixalan I think it was spelled? This looks to be a mesoamerican inspired plane so there's no hope for slivers in September/January. More likely will get a few merfolk instead is my guess. However maybe the block after in the summer could be dominara? I would live to see slivers as first of all I would enjoy playing them in standard as I never got to do that earlier. Then anything for edh would be awesome. Currently have my Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Sliver Overlord although the lands are fairly budget, and Athreos, God of Passage for my edh decks. I am trying to upgrade them all slowly over time as I'm as well upgrading my very costly modern infect deck (Need Noble Hierarch playset and 5 more green related fetchlands) and a little before that my b/g delirium deck for standard (rather absurd its more than my Atraxa deck in $ right now thanks to a playset of Grim Flayer, Liliana, the Last Hopes, Blooming Marsh, and what not making it like over $470 I believe, use to be a bit more value but it's falling). As you can see I'm trying to slowly upgrade rather a lot of things even though my standard I'm happy with for now, but I do hope to finish Slivers maybe by the fall is my guess?

Now if you thought you were ranting then that is nothing compared to all of this! This is much worse so I do apologize. (Longest TappedOut comment I have made I think in the little more than a year on here now lol).

NINJAxPENGUIN92 I get that, but like I said before I don't really want to focus on a single color. The Eldrazi can all be casted with any combination of color of mana, save for Kozilek, the Great Distortion. Omnath, Locus of Mana focuses solely on Green Mana. If I were trying to go for a single color of mana, it would be a totally different deck. I understand perfectly from where you are coming from, but I just don't think that Omnath would be a fit in this deck. Maybe some time in the future, I would make a deck focused on him,(after I finish working on Rainbow Humans and All Colored Combos: Budget Edition for my brother), because it seems like a fun concept to build up a ton of mana and never use it.

Great deck, has just the right amount of creature mana ramp to help you pump out big creatures fast.

You could really start abusing the mana pool with the amount of mana you have here. I'd recommend adding Omnath, Locus of Mana to help you ensure that not one drop of mana goes to waste.

Endless One works really well with Selvala, it can get pretty big and accelerate your ramp quickly once you have your base ramp set up.

Another card I have to recommend is Heroes' Bane. It only costs 4 mana to double its power, in other words every 4 mana you pump into him, you can double Selvala's ability's potential. Say you cast it and pump it three times, a cost of 17 mana. It will then have a power of 32, meaning you can get an extra 31 mana with Selvala's ability. Then you can put that mana right back into Heroes Bane to make him even more swull... You see where this is going, I'm sure.

Finally, Concordant Crossroads will give you the ability to swing in with big creatures and activate Selvala on the turn you play them. It does accelerate opponents as well, but I'm willing to be your deck will benefit from the global Haste more in the long run.

Would like to suggest Hunter's Prowess and Soul's Majesty for reloading your hand.

Kamahl, Fist of Krosa let's you channel all that saved mana into overrunning your army, should you need to.

Finally Sakiko, Mother of Summer is kinda a match made in heaven for an aggressive Omnath, Locus of Mana

NINJAxPENGUIN92 I threw in Worldly Tutor and Splendid Reclamation. They do help a ton. THe reason I did not take out Animist's Awakening is because of the spell mastery ability on it which lets you untap the lands, plus it hits both basics and non-basics. I will also be making so much mana from The Gitrog Monster, Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, and Kruphix, God of Horizons that I can play Animist's for at least 7 or 8. And finally, I decided to leave out Omnath, Locus of Mana because I don't want to have to focus on a single color of mana that will just turn into colorless as the turn ends. While Omnath would be good in a mono-green deck, it would not work as well in mine, because I am primarily focused on Kruphix Reserves. Thanks for the suggestions though! :)
