Prismatic Omen Discussion

There's already a lot of good suggestions here... maybe some more five colors spells?
Or mana fixing?
Or just about anything, really.
Never made a five-color deck, so i've got limited knowledge on them, but i hope these suggestions can help!

Hey, you asked for my advice. Consider narrowing down to a couple of strategies and cutting the rest? An important question is, how is the deck going to function if you don't have Ramos in play? Don't count on having his mana at all times. I would start by cutting a lot of the good stuff bombs and additional combats; you don't need these cards. They may be fun, nice to envision casting them with Ramos's mana, but they aren't practical. I would also cut the wheels or consider adding some options which can take advantage of getting cards out of the graveyard.
My suggestions are:
- Birds of Paradise
- Atraxa, Praetors' Voice
- Kess, Dissident Mage
- Eternal Witness
- Bloodbraid Elf
- Abzan Charm
- Jund Charm
- Bant Charm
- Esper Charm
- Sultai Charm
- Swords to Plowshares
- Sphinx's Revelation
- Supreme Verdict
- Demonic Tutor
- Vampiric Tutor
- Enlightened Tutor
- Worldly Tutor
- Bring to Light
- Prismatic Omen
- Joiner Adept
Other than Progenitus my suggestions will decrease the avg. CMC of this deck and allow you to focus on the more important cards rather than playing so many high casting cost cards which will be a hindrance much more than a strength in games where you don't have Ramos in play.
Playing tutors is better than playing so many good stuff bombs. It's better to play only a few good stuff bombs and then use the tutors to tutor for them directly when you want them. Tutors can help at all times in a game. In the early game to get cards that can help to cast Ramos and power him up and then later to find the bombs you want to use Ramo's mana with.
Charms are very good with Ramos, but more importantly they're good when Ramos isn't in play because they give so many options. They're also excellent with cascade.
Prismatic and Joiner are additional Chromatic Lantern effects. This effect is very important for the deck to function without Ramos's mana.
Kess is amazing with tutors and charms being able to cast them a second time from the graveyard.
Good luck with your deck.

Nice deck. The speed of it could be increased somewhat by adding either Exploration and/or Prismatic Omen. That last one especially is almost a must in a 5-color deck. As Foretold could also help you a great deal; especially because you have a number of cards in your deck that increase counters. I think I'd replace Nekusar, the Mindrazer with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

Thanks Hyperalgialysis! I couldn't resist a Monty Python joke for this "lands" deck.
I have tried using some walkers like Xenagos, the Reveler in the past, but I have never been that impressed by walkers in multi-player commander. I find that most walkers just die right away. Nissa, Sage Animist Flip I keep because of how well she plays into the deck's theme and the card advantage she provides. That being said, Nissa, Vital Force might be worth a try. I don't run enough swamps or mountains to make Koth or Liliana worthwhile, but if I eventually include Prismatic Omen they might worth revisiting.

I've looked into Prismatic Omen. It is a very good card and prevents being blown out by Blood Moon. However, it opens you up to landwalk type effects and land destruction like Boil. For these reasons, I have chosen to go with Burgeoning for now, at least. I appreciate your input gatorgoat0339.You are the first person in over a year to leave a comment, thank you!

No. The Oracle text for Excavator now reads:
, Sacrifice a basic land: Target creature gains landwalk of each of the land types of the sacrificed land until end of turn.
Wastes is a Basic Land with not subtypes, so if you sacrifice it to Excavator it will likely grant no landwalk abilities. It is possible it would grant abilities if it was enchanted with Spreading Seas or you controlled a Prismatic Omen, but your opponent would have to control a land of the appropriate type, not a wastes, for landwalk to prevent blocking.

Oops forgot rev is limited to 2 power... Alright so we don't want to abuse the grave but we want to get a ton of stuff out and smash. I can work with that.
Rishkar's Expertise, Baral's Expertise- These are really good for getting ahead and staying ahead. The other 3 expertises might be good but have far fewer targets for cheating out. Yahenni's Expertise would probably be the only other one I would play since your stuff mostly lives.
Dread- Why not punish people for hurting you?
Door of Destinies, Call to the Kindred, Mirror Entity, Urza's Incubator, Cryptic Gateway, or even any of the rest of these EDH Tribal Staples. Hopefully that is more helpful. Don't forget to go through the commander 2017 stuff I'm sure there will be some gems in it.

I'm actually quite annoyed neither of those first two suggestions of mine were included in this precon.
