Weird_Frisbee on Omnath, Locus of Armageddon v1.9

I really enjoy your list, I found some similarities between your Omnath and my Omnath EDH but I definetly found some stuff in yours to upgrade my list.

My only tentative suggestion: Seasons Past, it has been very handy in my games, typically getting me 5-7 cards back.

But overall, I really like your angry elemental list, +1 from me.

And simic also has Voidslime to go alongside Disallow. And Seasons Past.

I a m not saying that "simic control" is necessarily a good idea, but its so out there that anything seems plausible.

List of things that could be better.

1.) Better Early Ramp Play more of the low cmc mana dorks like Boreal Druid, and Elvish Mystic. Then the noncreature one mana ramp like Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth. 2 mana dorks like Bloom Tender and Priest of Titania. Also Probably a good idea to only play one of the four mana accelerators like Vizier of the Menagerie, Oracle of Mul Daya, and 3 cmc Courser of Kruphix as the early ramp that the one cmc dork provide is much faster.

2.) Evaluate what impact a card has when played (General rule is 4 cmc or higher should put you at a significant advantage or outright win you the game)Remove the cards that dont provide significant advantage and are just general goodstuff value like Thragtusk, Vedalken Orrery replaced by Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Portal Mage, Mnemonic Wall replaced by Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Nissa, Steward of Elements probably should probably be another combo piece or some sort of draw/protection.

3.) More and Better Counterspells Use better counterspells than Disallow. Like Counterspell, Remand, Unsubstantiate, Daze, Spell Snare, Swan Song, Muddle the Mixture, Mana Drain, Mental Misstep, Delay, Dispel, Spell Pierce, and Negate. Your counterspell package should really be large so you can play Baral, Chief of Compliance and get more Rashmi, Eternities Crafter Triggers on other players turns while searching for you combo.

4.) Better Lands
Off color fetches like Flooded Strand, or Wooded Foothills are still better than Evolving Wilds. Other cards like Crop Rotation can fetch Gaea's Cradle or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or even help fix you mana early on. Along those lines if you still feel you need more fixing Nature's Lore and Skyshroud Claim can grab fetch lands and get untapped lands which is much better. Lands like Simic Growth Chamber, Temple of the False God,and Seat of the Synod should be replaced by lands like City of Brass, Mana Confluence, and Ancient Tomb or other off color fetches to more reliably get you mana base set.

5.) Better Draw and top deck manipulation
In the category of better "draw" or more honestly hand manipulation cards like Frantic Search, Baral, Chief of Compliance, and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip are great at giving you the ability to toss tech cards like Manglehorn or Reclamation Sage when they are not needed and get better stuff. Now in straight card draw cards like Pull from Tomorrow, Fact or Fiction, and Gitaxian Probe either offer massive draw or knowledge of another opponents hand. You should play Preordain for more draw and top deck manipulation.

6.) Some combos are just better Some of the best most consistent methods of making your opponents not win the game.

a.) Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal infinite mana and untaps let you do stuff like draw your deck with Sensei's Divining Top, Stroke of Genius, Pull from Tomorrow, and Enter the Infinite

b.) Seasons Past + Dramatic Reversal after drawing your deck to generate infinite mana by looping Seasons Past to recurr Dramatic Reversal followed by a draw spell.

c.) Seasons Past + Hurkyl's Recall This one requires more artifact mana rocks and is usually a backup plan to Dramatic Reversal being exiled somehow. Same strategy as the last combo with a set of rocks as follows: Mox Diamond, Simic Signet, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, Mana Crypt, and Sol Ring.

Start off by tapping or playing any rocks that generate you mana then play Hurkyl's Recall on yourself.

Cast these rocks and generate 3 colorless 2 blue and 1 green mana.

Use Noxious Revival to get back Hurkyl's Recall having 3 colorless 2 blue in pool.

Cast Frantic Search getting Seasons Past and Hurkyl's Recall back and discard two nonland high cmc cards. going to 1 colorless 1 blue. Then use the untap to go to 1 colorless 2 blue 2 green in pool.

Now use Hurkyl's Recall again on yourself going to 1 blue 2 green in pool.

Replay Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Grim Monolith, and Sol Ring going to 6 colorless 1 blue and 2 green in pool

Then cast Seasons Past back the land Hurkyl's Recall, Frantic Search + discarded cards, and Noxious Revival.

You can repeat this to generate infinite colorless mana and then cast Simic Signet in the loop to generate inifinite colored as well.

Winning the Game with inifinite mana

d.) Seasons Past + Beast Within + Reality Shift - use Beast Within to destroy a permanent then Reality Shift the beast to make them manifest a card. Then use Seasons Past to loop this until all opponents have no decks.

e.) Infinite Mana + Stroke of Genius- Use this plus Noxious Revival + Seasons Past to make all opponents have no cards left in their deck.

f.) Beast Within + Swan Song-Beast Within all of their stuff then bounce it with something like Cyclonic Rift Then start playing permanents that can be destroyed and Beast Withining your own permanent. Loop with Seasons Past to create infinite beasts. This also works with Swan Song by countering your own spells and looping with Seasons Past.

The combo you use depends heavily on what you have available in your deck once you achieve infinite mana. The goal is to have a diverse enough list that not everything you need can be exiled.

Hope this helps out.

Hi sirshagadelic!

It looks like you have a finely crafted mono-green list here! What about Seasons Past as a piece of mass recursion for your list to help recover from board wipes and the like? Also, I feel that Defense of the Heart in conjunction with Craterhoof Behemoth could do some serious work in this deck. Overall it looks like a solid deck and it looks like a blast to play!

+1 from me!

If you're planning on using Thrasios's ability to get your start, try Training Grounds and Heartstone to make his ability more efficient. Temur Ascendancy might be a better haste enabler than Fires of Yavimaya with all the big bombs you'll be dropping late game. I'm not a huge fan of the spell-based recursion effects when you have Karmic Guide and Eternal Witness in your colors. Seasons Past is also a great, albeit slower, recursion card. Finally, Vizier of the Menagerie is a great draw engine that also fixes your mana for more difficult casting costs.

A combination in abzan colours that i do play is a deck full of fogs, removal, some Razaketh's Rite, some Seasons Past and approach. Pretty mean, but very powerful.

I must be honest, I have been staring at this deck for the last few hours as work has permitted and everything I have thought of I can see by your card picks has already been addressed. No High Tide/Bubbling Muck/Prismatic Omen, no Time Spiral or Seasons Past, the combos included, and the various Doomsday pile options. I would love to have this at our cutthroat table, this is great work.

I am curious if Silence is relevant in your meta and worth a slot. Also are there any better rock options than the signet and talisman or are those colors too important to cut?
