Target creature you control gets +1/+1 and gains hexproof until end of turn. (It can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control.)
Ranger's Guile Discussion
1 week ago
Needs more Fortitude
Frog Tongue is a cantrip
Also also: I've been Wombating for a long time, and I can tell you with certainty that when you play against people, they are going to try to kill your boy, because they lack both culture and sophistication. Hexproof and Indestructible instants like Ranger's Guile , Vines of Vastwood , and Mortal's Resolve are pretty clutch.
Seeing another Wombat deck pleases me greatly. Godspeed, friend.

A creature like Rot Wolf might be good as a recurring source of draw -- Just pump it up and they either get poisoned or you draw a card from them blocking it. That's the big pick I'd suggest, as it's a threat, can draw cards and infect, while oppressive, can win you the game easily.
I see you have Ranger's Guile -- I always love Sheltering Word in decks with big green creatures along with that. Withstand Death and Mortal's Resolve give indestructible as opposed to hexproof if you need it.
If you're looking to ramp quickly, you might want to consider land auras that get you a little extra like Fertile Ground or Wild Growth -- Sadly the ones that draw you cards only seem to let you get mana of any colour which is sort of useless in mono-G. Bequeathal might be an idea in the early game, pop it on a chump blocker and get some draw.
Only other thing I could say is to mark Mowu with CMDR in the list so it stands out -- I'm really liking the build otherwise, and as you say at this rarity level it's hard to find good sources of draw, but with some testing and tuning I'm sure it'll be a strong deck to fight against! +1 for good boyes!

You can definitely make Omnath, Locus of Rage competitive. I have a friend who plays it.
Ramp is your best friend. And Sac Outlets are your best friend along with some wrath effects.
Cards that you need to make the deck function better are Explore type effects: Oracle of Mul Daya , Azusa, Lost but Seeking , Exploration , Explore , Enter the Unknown , Journey of Discovery , Mina and Denn, Wildborn , Summer Bloom , Wayward Swordtooth ... These work to great effect in getting the most out of Omnath's triggered ability and might hinder your opponents' plans of sweeping the board.
Also, you should be running more lands than the usual EDH deck because you want to be able to keep playing lands.
Recursion is also what will assist in the control metas: Regrowth , Eternal Witness , Den Protector , Greenwarden of Murasa , Recollect , The Mending of Dominaria ... These will help you maintain use of the cards that get removed. Also it allows you to let your general go to Graveyard and get it back to cast it for regular CMC.
You could also use some triggers upon a creature entering the battlefield: Electropotence , Impact Tremors , In the Web of War , Mana Echoes , Warstorm Surge , Purphoros, God of the Forge , Colossal Majesty , Elemental Bond ...
The world is your "oyster" good sir! So have at it. And happy shuffling. Hope this helps.

While blue is certainly the most controlling of colors, it's really cards like Path to Exile , Utter End -type spells, and wraths like Wrath of God and Toxic Deluge that set the deck so far behind in tempo. It makes me consider things like Ranger's Guile attractive, or even Gods Willing in Mayael. Before I deconstructed her, I tried going stax-y with cards like Eidolon of Rhetoric to slow my opponents down to my speed, and Dauntless Escort to wrath-proof my boards.
Mayael aside, Omnath, Locus of Rage is in her stead currently as my top commander. While I am fighting the urge to rebuild her, I would still love to know if ANYONE is having any success with either commander in relatively competitive metas like mine?

Really nice deck dude. How do you perform with it ?
My 2CP is that you got a bit too high curve for the format. Especially since just like me you play green without the dorks.
First -> go to 37 lands at least (!!!). Seriously, appart Akira/Silas, some special Sram decks or Mono red decks, competitive decks with less than 35/36 lands don't exist.
Lower your curve a lot or add all the dorks.
Eventually take a look at this website listing the deck lists of all the winners in major events of the format the past 3 years (pretty sure you'll can find some skullB decks) : https://www.mtgtop8.com/format?f=EDH
I saw Vampiric Tutor in maybeboard but this is ban in the format :)
Some Cut : Beast Within give a 3/3 turn 3 in this format is not good especially without dorks. Phyrexian Arena because Dark Confidant is better. Primeval Bounty , Asceticism and Doubling Season -> you basically spend your turn 5 or 6 doing nothing :/

Oh yikes! That's a huge screw-up, my bad. As much as I'd like Battle Screech, I actually don't produce enough white tokens to justify it, in my eyes. I'll just go for a protection spell, like Ranger's Guile .
