VexenX on [[Primer v3.3]] - OM_RATH!!! (2018 Update!!!)

Im active! Kinda. Limited play time and a lack of new good cards doesn't give much to talk about sadly.

1000 votes is crazy! I still really love this

Which enchantment? The untap lands one?

Here is one change. Also trying to get my hands on a Ancient Tomb to match 5he rest of my lands.

IN:

Ranger's Path

OUT:

Shaman of Forgotten Ways

Agreed with the first three. Khalni Gem could be alright, but it's also kind of a karoo.

I don't like: Undergrowth Champion, Tunneling Geopede, Tornado Elemental, Phytotitan, and especially Geyser Glider, Grove Rumbler, Sylvan Awakening, Embodiment of Fury and Embodiment of Insight. That's most of your elemental and landfall synergy. I don't think those are worth building around at all, since nearly your only payoff is your commander and the cards are pretty awful without him (and even with him they're not great.)

I'd suggest: Ramunap Excavator, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Perilous Forays (this especially combos really well with Omnath), Harrow, Ulvenwald Hydra, Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds, Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma, Ranger's Path, Thaumatic Compass  Flip, Goblin Bombardment, Blighted Woodland, Temple of the False God

Krond may be tough to cast at . I believe Command Tower, Bountiful Promenade, Scattered Groves, Canopy Vista, Fortified Village, Sungrass Prairie and Brushland might replace Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse and some basics for more mana consistency. // A turn 2 Nature's Lore (can grab a nonbasic Forest), Fertile Ground or Selesnya Signet lead you to a turn 3 Skyshroud Claim, Hunting Wilds, Ranger's Path (nonbasic forest synergy) or Circuitous Route (guildgate synergy) so you can cast your commander on turn 4. Similarly, a turn 1 Wild Growth, Birds of Paradise, Llanowar Elves or Elvish Mystic into a turn 2 Overgrowth can bring Krond on turn 3! // Since you are going heavy on enchantments, Satyr Enchanter, Verduran Enchantress and Enchantress's Presence give great card advantage. // Rogue's Passage is good for alpha strikes.

Hello!

Lets have a look at some possible additions: Savage Ventmaw would be good as you can haste it then get 3 and 3 the same turn, allowing you to cast more.

Malignus is a must, he can kill a person in a single swing in your deck, especially with Rogue's Passage (which should also be an addition.

Hydra Omnivore For those bigger games, and his a big boy.

Etali, Primal Storm For those same cast turn swings that should get you some nice stuff.

Ruric Thar, the Unbowed would be amazing, more so if you're looking at going creature focused.

Hellkite Tyrant for steeling all the artifacts and a long drawn wincon (Vs artifact decks).

Mina and Denn, Wildborn should replace on of your elves.

Blightsteel Colossus is also a big wincon for you.

That's it for creatures for now.

Chaos Warp its an important card in red, its removal of used for keeping your own things safe. This is a fantastic instant for you.

Blasphemous Act is an amazing removal card you should add.

Defense of the Heart is amazing at getting creatures for you. Lurking Predators can cheat some brilliant things in, Greater Good gives you some amazing card draw as does Sylvan Library .

Now lets look at some mana ramp: Cultivate Rampant Growth Farseek Skyshroud Claim and Ranger's Path These should sort out any mana you need to find.

Land wise: Rootbound Crag Cinder Glade Spire Garden Temple of Abandon Stomping Ground Game Trail Kazandu Refuge and Fire-Lit Thicket sort out your duel mana.

Skarrg, the Rage Pits Kessig Wolf Run Rogue's Passage Reliquary Tower Yavimaya Hollow Ghost Quarter and Maze of Ith are brilliant for being utility.

Spinerock Knoll and Mosswort Bridge are amazing single colour for extra things.

And Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is highly recommended.

Domri Rade and Garruk, Caller of Beasts are amazing plainswalkers for you.

OH! don't forget Ghalta, Primal Hunger

VexenX: Well since the deck is 87% Green, and the only card needing double red is Omrath himself, and the only other 7 red cards in the deck only need single red, it really seems like Ranger's Path is just a strictly better card in this case. Ranger's Path in this deck instead of Explosive Vegetation will find the red mana needed to cast Omrath, and neither ramp spell would let the lands enter untapped if it was needed to cast Omrath the same turn. Furthermore, it would reduce the number of ramp spells restricted to finding basics which also seems very good, since it could lead to a reduced number of basics in the future if similar new ramp spells is printed, like Hour of Promise :) I think it's a swap right away, unless there is a more underperforming ramp spell to replace, but i can't really see which one it should be :)

In regards to removal, Beast Within takes any permanent even lands, so this could be nice to include. But if you are going to add removal, it is not very reliable to only have 1, then you would need at least 3-5 to make it more consistent which is a key essential in any optimized build in my experience. Furthermore it would be hard to figure out what to cut to run a bigger amount of removal, and removal and hate cards are very meta dependent. So a creature heavy meta like your own won't need a lot of removal cards. Obviously if they ever print an Aura Shards in these colours put that baby in right away :)

Hate cards and removal are always the hardest to make objectively correct in my opinion as amount and which cards are best, change depending on the meta. A few cards are objectively very strong and ALMOST needs to go in every deck they can, like Anguished Unmaking or Beast Within.

In case to Vandalblast & By Force, these are more meta dependent, or needed if one deck has a tough time dealing with artifacts. I change decks very often and i have multiple decks, and a lot of players in my meta does the same, so including hate cards are often a waste since they can be awesome in one case where you draw it and play against the right decks, otherwise they are horrible. So cards like Grafdigger's Cage, Torpor Orb and similar effects are very inconsistent. Torpor Orb hits cards in almost any deck so that is a better hate card than most, but still very inconsistent.

Hope you can use some of my thoughts, even though this comment ended up being quite long :p

That works for the Ranger's Path switch. Vandalblast I find worse than By Force, because a number of the time someone drops a Grafdigger's Cage shutting out a Karador deck, and you just want to blow up every artifact your opponents control except that hate piece. By Force will do the trick! I get that in this list Bane of Progress might not work, but many Omnath decks aren't going to use that many enchantments, and would just like it as a large beatstick elemental that also blows stuff to smithereens.

So, two big topics here are 1) non-creature removal and 2) Ranger's Path.

1) The whole removal thing has been a highly discussed topic over the past few years. We obviously dont need creature removal in here thanks to Om_rath. I have opted out of playing non-creature removal purely because of my meta, which is very creature/commander focused. This being said, highly saturated creature removal has historically been more then enough for me. When I use to run non-creature removal it would sit in my hand forever, or I would just win without ever using it. The best removal to run would of course be Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Vandalblast, and Decimate. I'm not a big fan of Bane of Progress in here because of all the key enchantments we run.

2) You guys are definitely right about Ranger's Path. Do you think I should just remove Explosive Vegetation?
