Prismatic Omen Discussion
1 day ago
So I really like the deck, it is definitely different style than what I run in my deck Amazing Grace How Sweet the Lands I do have a question about your addition of Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle you only have a total of 9 mountains if you include Thespian's Stage and Vesuva so I didn't know if you had a reason for it or might think of adding Prismatic Omen so that they all get that etb trigger

Ok--So here are a couple suggestions on lands--staples--if you will, that I include with this style deck/commander etc that I mentioned briefly above.
Fetchlands are great with Omnath and all of your creatures with Landfall like Avenger of Zendikar More the merrier. Some of the fetches have been reprinted, some haven't. So depending on the one you want, there could be a wide range in price. There are Budget equivalents like Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse and Mountain Valley there's a couple others too. These traditionally aren't as good because they only get Basic lands and they come into play tapped. However, they get the job done on Landfall triggers should you need an option while you're waiting to upgrade to that Wooded Foothills this one, luckily, has been reprinted in Khans block I believe. It wouldn't be a bad idea to look at a few others while we were at it though. Windswept Heath might be good Blighted Woodland and Naya Panorama better or cheaper options for sure.
Color Balance: Nothing sucks more than drawing a bunch of one color mana--so lets even it out some with lands that tap for either color.
Rootbound Crag , Stomping Ground , Reflecting Pool , Command Tower , Raging Ravine Utility Lands: Maximize your land. Make it work for you.
Kessig Wolf Run , Rogue's Passage , Thespian's Stage , Miren, the Moaning Well , Temple of the False God , Skarrg, the Rage Pits
There are others--Tribal specific that are good-- Contested Cliffs for example would be good if you had more beasts or Primal Beyond if you had more Elementals.
Now-- I had thought about it some more since I commented earlier today and I have a few more suggestions. I'm just going to suggest the cards, I won't offer cuts at this time, because I'm not looking to change your deck completely, just give you some thoughts if you were wanting to tap into your Commander more or just be cool fun R/G beats deck etc. I'll leave that up to you. Happy to help in any way though.
Synergy: There are a few other cards that would work well with Omnath and I'll list here.
Solemn Simulacrum The Lonely Robot draws a card and gets you a land = Landfall trigger/ramp.
Scapeshift Cast this when you have Omnath and it could be awesome. Cast it with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle in play, and thats a lot of damage. Prismatic Omen Doesn't care what land you get--just saying.
Craterhoof Behemoth takes all those shiney new Elementals and/or Plant tokens from Avenger of Zendikar and makes them Big stompy.
Warstorm Surge I'll just leave this here.
Skyshroud Claim Yeah, in play.
About this one particular card:
Burst Lightning Ok, I do think you should probably swap this card with something that straight kills something gives you a little more versatility. Perhaps something like Atarka's Command or Decimate or Skullcrack or Beast Within or Banefire
Other EDH Staples and Protection:
Chord of Calling
Some other cards to save towards I guess.
I hope this helps. I rambled.

To anyone wondering if Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle is good in this deck, should it only really work with 1 card ( Prismatic Omen ) it would rarely be of any help unless maybe this deck is rebuilt to be more red ( Blood Moon ?). Otherwise I recommend Valakut as the 1st card to consider replacing. It is very good in any deck that can include multiples of each of the cards which it works with (i.e. Modern).

For your mana base suggestions: Llanowar Wastes , Woodland Cemetery , Underground River , Drowned Catacomb , Yavimaya Coast are all affordable dual lands that should help out and are relatively cheap. Also Command Tower isn't expensive either and is the best land in our format. Also, Commander's Sphere and Chromatic Lantern wont set you back much. Also consider Prismatic Omen that card can turn a meh mana base into a efficient one once it hits the table

Thank you very much, Hyena34!
You are very right about responses, this deck does not feature any direct responses besides the controlling element of it - it is, however, not a duel commander deck, and is mostly played in multiplayer.
Volrath's Stronghold should certainly be in the deck, how could I've missed it, thanks! I'm not a big fan of Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or Prismatic Omen though; I don't think, they'll help in this deck. Dust Bowl on the other hand might be worth a shot.
When it comes to tutoring, I've only included Vampiric Tutor but I'm thinking of using Imperial Seal as well. Besides that, many cards tutor for specific land cards as well. I'm not sure either Mystical Tutor or Worldly Tutor would do this deck any good.
Thank you so much for the suggestions and comments, rock on!

Since you need to be fast when you ramp, cause every turn lost increases the possibilities of your defeat, why don't you add something like Farseek or even Birds of Paradise or Ancient Stirrings to ramp fast, instead of Boundless Realms and Nissa's Renewal ?
Then, I don't know your budget, but fetch and shock lands fit here wery well
Another good card I'd suggest to fix your mana is Prismatic Omen

@frezzreaper: Just a log in case you still care. Still no need for help currently; Trying to find ramp that doesn't need to target Basics as it is... Regarding Time Spiral, I even added Leyline of Anticipation + Vedalken Orrery for Mass Flash, & Day's Undoing as an instant speed alt. For something I can't even afford. From there, I also added some tutors, unless they really blow hard: Wargate, Dark Petition, Diabolic Revelation... I dunno if they're any good, but for other Ramp, Genesis Wave, Exploration, & Burgeoning is what I can think of. Other things I can think of are Farseek, Spoils of Victory, & Shard Convergence. Not too sure about your thoughts on Perilous Forays & Prismatic Omen, but I would like your thoughts. Quite a bad job at finding Draw Spells, I am. People usually use stuff like Phyrexian Arena, & Sylvan Library, but someone told me a gutsy, albeit smart decision to exclude both. That said, Rhystic Study stays though...
1: Cut some Walkers; & some support to lessen the load of Walkers. & Infinites.
2: Try & lessen the amount of infinite combos from the Walkers at least...
3: Wonder Why only 5 Wraths are really needed, as well as only 5 Draw (Should be more...), 10 Accelerants, & no amount of needed Tutors, all while getting to help at the current time.
5: Wonder if 10 ABU Duals, 10 Fetches, & 10 Shocks are needed, or if they don't even be needed at all, & what can replace them...
Sorry to say, so many Walkers alone have potential for such a thing as Wincons at the many. Though I'll see what I can cut though... ;) Later.
