Zilkios on [[Primer v3.4]] - OM_RATH!!! (M20 Update!!!)

VexenX the primer hasn't worked properly in some time, only your 'active decks', and 'needs updates'. TO has been lackluster lately and more and more players are using Moxfield.

I've been running extensive tests with this deck for a while now, it is by far my favorite casual commander. Here are some of my notes:

I find an opening hand Crop Rotation frustrating, yet a love seeing it later. I would rather have a Elvish Reclaimer early. The inner debate went on as to which one I should run, ultimately deciding that I'm going to try to run both.

Perilous Forays: I could live with or without it, it's good but not great a lot. A potential cut.

Terror of the Peaks, Warstorm Surge, and Where Ancients Tread all compete for the same job. Getting two or three in the same hand is more diminishing than it is beneficial. Warstorm may be on my chopping block.

Unless I can get more more find land cards w/o any clauses, I may rethink Reliquary Tower, and Command Beacon. I like bringing Hour of Promise back into my deck. I also believe Sheltered Thicket deserves a slot. If I'm fetching tapped forests, might as well get a dual.. or cycle it for and upcoming loam or rec.

I will include a link to my list so you can see what I run, and what I'm thinking with my 'considering cards.' Is there a Discord for Omrage, does anyone know? Rage on brothers and sisters.

ThoAlmighty I used to run Perilous Forays a long time ago, I felt like the cmc to cast it was too much.

Any suggestions for any white spells I could run?

If you're still looking for more ramp, Perilous Forays is a favorite of mine that also synergizes with what your deck is planning to do. Not sure how it stacks up against your other sac outlets but might be worth a go. Diligent Farmhand isn't quite as good as Sakura-Tribe but may still be worth an inclusion

BeefSupreem12, I have seen those, and I know those enchantments are immensely popular with angry Om decks for good reasons as it is powerful to get the pseudo-combo going. But personally I dislike running those bulkier (5CMC or greater) enchantments as I have found them difficult to play alongside Om, and not be losing, in my area's meta. But I do keep going back and forth on Perilous Forays, Parallel Lives and Warstorm Surge so maybe someday if the competitiveness of my LGS's EDH scene goes down they will be included again lol.

Very nice, have you seen Perilous Forays though? If you combine it with your commander and Amulet of Vigor or Lotus Cobra it lets you get all your basic lands onto the field, with each one giving you 3 burn damage. This combo has allowed me to eliminate 2 players on turn 5, but my deck also has a lot more basic lands than yours due to budget restraints. Still, combining it with Parallel Lives or Warstorm Surge are just two examples of how insane this combo can be if you get the right pieces. Just a suggestion in case you haven’t seen it, love your deck though!

I know your heart might be set on Rith, but Tana, the Bloodsower and Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder are great generals for this strategy. Giving Tana doublestrike while she has a Bravado effect is really powerful (her first hit makes saps, which makes her twice as big, so the second hit makes her 4x as big: exponentially increasing damage + saproling output). Here's a budget list with them if you're curious:

These cards might catch your eye: Betrothed of Fire, Hope Against Hope, Mantle of Leadership, Fanatical Devotion, Perilous Forays, Pollenbright Wings, Storm the Citadel, Five-Alarm Fire, Keeper of Fables, Requiem Angel, Fungal Plots, Utopia Mycon, Eidolon of Countless Battles, Ivy Lane Denizen, Rapacious One, Pallid Mycoderm

Yarok I appreciate and even encourage your enthusiasm but suggestions are not needed for this deck. I’ve been playing EDH for a decade. Those cards aren’t in this deck because I didn’t want them to be. Playing any lands without basic types is undesirable in this deck because of all the fetches and things like Perilous Forays and with all the revised duals and now the two triomes, it is perfectly fine on colored mana lands. Sol Ring doesn’t help me cast Dune Brood and I generally just don’t like playing the card in every deck, much less green decks. Skullclamp is also obviously excellent but serves no Vorthos purpose and I play it in many of my other decks so I wanted to go a different direction in this one. Again, thanks for taking the time to comment and offer your thoughts but I’m happy with this deck how it is.
