Snake Umbra Discussion

Pal00ka on LAND HO!

Why Arbor Elf? You have no "special" forests nor enchantments to boost mana in which to untap for extra gain. The mana dorks (and rocks) in general (except Smokebraider) seem odd additions due to Omnath wanting you to drop lands. Why not more instants/sorceries to put lands on the field? Early game they'll get you to Omnath faster and late game they make elementals. Mana dorks may accelerate in beginning but can get wiped away and are subpar late.

Pandemonium, Where Ancients Tread, and Warstorm Surge were favorites of mine in Omnath.

I'd highly suggest more protection for Omnath because he's a magnet for removal. Swiftfoot Boots, Darksteel Plate, Bear Umbra, Boar Umbra, Snake Umbra, Spider Umbra, Archetype of Endurance, Wrap in Vigor, or Resuscitate all help him stick around longer.

In my build I was all in on making tokens with him. 1/5 of the deck was ramp spells alone. Two of the few elementals I included was Obsidian Fireheart (his burn ability doesn't go away even if he does) and Liege of the Tangle (we're already going to have lots of lands so might as well let them smash face too).

Haste for your elementals to immediately hit is wise too (get some value now in case a wipe is coming). Fervor, Hammer of Purphoros (good w Titania too), Fires of Yavimaya, Concordant Crossroads or Mass Hysteria fit the bill.

Trample too so your 5/5s are just getting chumped by 0/1s: Nylea, God of the Hunt, Primal Rage, Thunderfoot Baloth and Overrun/Overwhelming Stampede fit the bill.

Hope something helped!

Qolorful on Sigarda, Host of Herons EDH

The umbra cards are fantastic for sigarda. She is already really hard to take out with hexproof and anti-sacrifice, making boardwipes and blocking the only way to take her out. Totem armor gives her pseudo-indestructible which makes her a serious pain to deal with, and aside from Descend upon the Sinful and Final Judgement there isn't really a way to remove her at that point

Some good ones to consider are Bear Umbra, Hyena Umbra, Snake Umbra, and Boar Umbra to name a few. There may be some you prefer to those, but those are off the top of my head

MStranger on Kill It With Mountains - Borborygmos Enraged EDH

Thanks for the suggestion! I've thought about including Seismic Assault, but my concern is that it can't really go 'infinite' like Borborygmos can with Keen Sense or Snake Umbra, so you'd have to win through Praetor's Counsel + Seismic Assault or Creeping Renaissance + Seismic Assault . That might be enough to warrant its inclusion though, I'll have to test it!

fist of the suns is going to help you cast your expensive dragons a LOT. I def recommend putting that in.

Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund is essential of course, but if you needed a budget alternative to the Tyrant, Dragonlord Kolaghan will give your guys haste. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is an awesome combo-card and will give you card advantage all while pinging your opponents or their creatures. He goes infinite with Curiosity Ophidian Eye Snake Umbra and Keen Sense

Skyline Despot is a good dragon that produces more dragons and gives you Monarch which helps you with drawing cards as well. If someone takes monarch away from you, just throw down Stormbreath Dragon and make him monstrous, punish those control players that like to draw cards. Moonveil Dragon gives all your creatures firebreathing and that can be crazy. Dragon Mage can reset your hand and mess up an opponent or two at the same time. Scourge of the Throne is bonkers if you can afford it.

Xenagos, God of Revels + Atarka, World Render + your commander is an instant kill with commander damage.

Play a few multicolored spells with Ramos, Dragon Engine on the field and then produce some mana with him and throw down Dragonstorm. Whats better than playing cool dragons for FREE?

I did some research, and the best card draw for a borbs deck is Keen Sense and Snake Umbra, every land you pitch makes you draw, which is quite efficient

Maybe some totem armor like Snake Umbra

Keen Sense is awesome with Grumpy Borbo, and so is Snake Umbra! Also, what do you think about Knollspine Dragon?

I would cut 2 lands. Also maybe include Sudden Strength, and/or Wildsize. They are pretty decent buffs that also replace themselves. Also maybe Snake Umbra.
