Omnath, Locus of Mana Discussion
4 days ago
I have two pseudo-voltron builds. They both run other game changing creatures (in case my commander is Counterspell 'd or Nevermore 'd too many times) but mostly plan on using the general as the wincon
Omnath, Locus of Mana is hilariously fun. If you can turn one mana dork, turn two Omnath, you can swing for 5 turn three, another 10 turn four, then gg turn five. Not many voltron decks can close out games that fast.
I use cards like Rogue's Passage and Bellowing Tanglewurm to push damage through, then cards like Hunter's Insight , Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Regal Force , etc can help carry you into a longer game
Aurelia, the Warleader is one of my wife's decks. Once she hits the board, shit is going down. Wrecking Ogre targeting her is a insta kill, Grafted Exoskeleton as well. Helm of the Host with her or Godo, Bandit Warlord goes infinite
Voltron can be tough if they have answers to your threats, but that's also part of the challenge and part of the fun!

One of my favorites was Prophet of Kruphix , that I played when still new to magic, in this casual deck before I even knew of any formats such as commander. Likewise, this deck included a few other things such as Arcanis the Omnipotent , Roil Elemental use to be a ton of fun with ramp cards like Explosive Vegetation too. Before long, I opened a Windswept Heath and sold this when I discovered it was actually something worth a lot, to acquire a bunch of cards like a Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , Omnath, Locus of Mana , etc. This was all before I yet still even knew of any formats and sadly some of those cards didn't get used later.
Although I have yet never played with it, I really for some reason like the card Elderscale Wurm because it has such a unique ability.
Because of that early Theros clash deck that contained Prophet of Kruphix , Hydra Broodmaster , Prognostic Sphinx which formed my first magic deck, the Simic colour pair I still very much enjoy to this day.

Mistcutter Hydra , Craterhoof Behemoth if you have a decent amount of creatures, eldrazi titans like Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , Kozilek, the Great Distortion , etc. Omnath, Locus of Mana will hold the mana as you swing, Eldrazi Conscription for a massive pump, Primordial Hydra , Stonehoof Chieftain , Tooth and Nail to tutor with.

I mean, Strip Mine and Wasteland are staple inclusions in pretty much any deck, but if you really think the manabase is that weak then fair enough.
I suppose the deck really does run too many pillow-fort effects, but, yes, I tend to play in metas with lots of creatures, so I tend to think that having a wipe suite (unless you're playing mono-green or something) is effectively a necessity.
Also, what's wrong with Command Beacon, exactly? I suppose if you're just really looking for lands to axe, fine, but it's not a weak card in and of itself--at least when your commander is better than Daxos.
I also completely forgot that Porphyry Nodes was a card, honestly. Otherwise, it'd be in there.
Your full list of replacements would make it to where we're playing a lot fewer enchantments, but I suppose Daxos isn't that great anyway, so, whatever. I'm honestly not sure if making that deck would qualify Daxos for tier 3, frankly, as it's more the deck than the commander or any synergy he has with it that's any good, but, whatever. I'm at least proud of how the mana curve in that deck is basically perfect, which is something your suggestions mess with slightly, but I suppose that doesn't really matter.
I just built that deck as an experiment, so I don't really care about it too much. Here, on the other hand, is a deck I've actually played extensively and have been tuning ever since I first made it:
Begin The Hymns. It's a Seton, Krosan Protector deck, and when I originally made it and shared it here, he was a very rogue af commander who was tier 4 or 5, but he got moved up to tier 3 after that point. The deck hasn't changed much since then, and I don't think I'm arguing for it to be moved up to tier 2 (the only mono-green commander in tier 2 is Selvala, Heart of the Wilds , and I'm assuming that's because she's draw in addition to ramp), but I would like to point out that Seton is perhaps the fastest mono-green ramp commander in the format. His ability effectively gives every druid in the deck haste (though, many of them have better abilities of their own), making him much faster than Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Omnath, Locus of Mana , and even Selvala (though she's probably still better).
At times, it's practically a storm deck--I've played some very interesting lines with it before. One time, my last opponent almost had me hard-locked by being able to recur Pernicious Deed and Liliana of the Veil with Doubling Season on the board thanks to Muldrotha, the Gravetide , and I believe what happened was I drew and played Green Sun's Zenith , got Eternal Witness , she got back Natural Order , I cast Natural Order getting Grave Sifter to get back all of the druids he'd previously wiped, then, with my remaining mana, I cast Aluren , then went off and killed him that turn (I had Zendikar Resurgent on the battlefield, hence why I had the mana for all that in the first place). I've cast Genesis Wave for 55 on turn 6 before thanks to Gaea's Cradle , Voyaging Satyr , Argothian Elder , and Vitalize . Yes, the deck dies to boardwipes (especially instant-speed ones) and counterspells, but it's surprisingly resilient, and also quite redundant, provided my opponents don't follow up by slamming some stax effect (which they probably would).

I was Able to win the last FNM of the year with her in a F4A "end of the year" battle... (20 ish people)
(Playmat + boosters (price support) = I gave them to the "newer" players! Not because I care but because I came for First Place or to learn more of my mistakes as to why I didn't get there and how to improve myself!!!.)
Present commanders on my tables;
- Table 1 : General Tazri(foodchain) + Omnath, Locus of Mana(Infect+otherInfinite stuff) + Athreos, God of Passage (Slower stuff like felidar, sanguine bond equisite = newer player i suppose unsure though)
- Table 2 : Grenzo, Dungeon Warden(Doomsday) + Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder(Stormfluxervoir) + Oloro, Ageless Ascetic (Stax)
(Made everyone draw due to 2 oppressive locks with humility and specific storm hate, but reminder!!! ---> our pod consisted of all the players that won their last pods so it resulted in everyone getting dragged down a bit in score! everyone becomes simultaneously second... Too Many Resets and Rebuilds + slow play storm player!)
- Table 3 : Hokori, Dust Drinker(Stax) + Vial Smasher the Fierce(Stax,discard,removal) + Purphoros, God of the Forge(Burn/Stax)
(Managed to live a lot longer thanks to the other Hokori while a blood moon was out and got ignored for a short while! Discard deck had a "the rack" kind of playstyle and hurt the other players a lot as well... ended up 1v1 with Derevi and we all know how broken that is if left unchecked!)
Every Single card that was added recently saw play or got in my hand at some point and regarding most useless (even though explosive rarely) titania is redundant to what this deck tries to do, in this meta many two drops needing to be Stax is far more important and more likely to not lose you games!

Also make note of the very bottom of the description where it says "If you would like to provide suggestions, please leave a comment (and ideally a link to a decklist)." If you feel as if whichever Omnath is competitive, please provide a decklist worthy of the placement so people can understand what you are talking about. Both of the Omnaths are High Power in my opinion, just because the whole "I swing in with the big creature" strategy isn't the most powerful one in the cEDH realm especially in a color identity that doesn't provide the protection it needs.

I am totally taking my Omnath, Locus of Mana deck apart and reworking it into this.

I've decided to pick a mono-green deck. Like I wrote previously I've never built a mono-colored deck and I have a few questions.
- I was gonna go with Omnath, Locus of Mana, but after going through the list of mono-green generals 2 more legends caught my attention.
First one is obviously Omnath, Locus of Mana (Mana/land focused deck).
My second idea was Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter (token oriented deck).
My third and last one is Rhonas the Indomitable (creature focused deck).
I was also wondering other than the obvious 20+ forest in the deck is there any other land I should think about including in the deck ?
