Thanks much! Good point regarding Steely Resolve and Lightning Greaves, not sure how I forgot about my own need to target Selvala.. Bane of Progress is a SUPER fun card, same with Realm Seekers.. I'll try them both out! I did add Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for some fun times last night - turn 4 was Weird Harvest, get Temur Sabertooth, Wirewood Symbiote and Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger - proceed to exile everything on the board.

Suggestions on delaying a win until turn 6? So I can basically drop her and go off.

I made a few changes to my version to help with that..

Included Thousand-Year Elixir (removed Benefactor's Draught) to kick her off as soon as I drop her on turn 6

Steely Resolve in, Carpet of Flowers out (can always name 'Scout' so not everyone benefits) to protect her

Instill Energy in, Scroll Rack out (kick her off as soon as she gets in)

Lightning Greaves in, Deglamer out (this one hurts, but I can't think of anything else to remove) to again, protect Selvala, Heart of the Wilds and give her haste when she drops

Other options:

Lifeforce to deal with black removal (use is little too narrow..)

Asceticism is sweet, but kinda pricy CMC wise to get out quickly

Another option, assuming I have the cards in hand, is dropping her early, and doing the old destroy everyone's permanents with the Staff of Domination Beast Within, Somberwald Stag, Eternal Witness and Temur Sabertooth combo - then just wait until turn 6 (not very nice, but hey)

Any other thoughts?

Citridon, Steely Resolve is a good one. Sunbird's Invocation is one I do have, but hadn't considered to throw in here. I'll think on it, thanks

Maybe Sunbird's Invocation?

You basically make each Hydra into Genesis Hydra.

Also, Steely Resolve is a great payoff for big-creature tribal, since your hydras are tempting targets for all the 1-for-1 removal.

VexenX, I assume you are asking about my experience with Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip? I am not playing the card and was interested in seeing what you plan to cut for it. Your response indicates it probably is not going to make it into the deck.

You did put in Traverse the Outlands by cutting a land to go to 42. I am at 42 lands as I cut one to get Asceticism into the deck. Natural Order and Akroma's Memorial were two possible cuts for Traverse the Outlands that I mentioned.

Would you recommend leaving out Traverse the Outlands, or cutting Akroma's Memorial or Natural Order or another card? Natural Order is the only card of the three that can be played while we are behind or as an alternate win condition getting either Avenger of Zendikar or Craterhoof Behemoth (win con).

I know Akroma's Memorial has won you games. I still value Steely Resolve, Asceticism and probably Eldrazi Monument more that Akroma's Memorial. This may come down to what kind of decks you are playing. A competitive table probably doesn't even concern itself with Omnath. A more casual table where turn six wins are very unusual are going to kill or counter Omnath 9 out of 10 times.

Akroma's Memorial does partiality aid with keeping Omnath on the board but it is not as effective as the other three as protection from white is much better than protection from red. The seven mana cost another issue as this necessitates waiting a turn to cast Omnath.

Have I overvalued Eldrazi Monument? It comes down on the mana curve before Omnath in theory and provides protection from most boardwipes. We are not playing that many creatures. Has the sacrifice clause been an issue for you? If you are having to play this after Omnath hits the board it becomes less valuable and probably loses out to Akroma's Memorial in finishing games.

Casey4321- I was originally running Steely Resolve but I decided to take it out because 10% of my deck either requires a target or is made far better when a target is present. And it removes my new favorite interaction: Raptor Hatchling+Kindred Boon.

The_Basset_Hound- I was originally running Coat of Arms as well but it got removed in favor of more combat steps and enrage triggers. I might add it back if you can think of a good place for it.

CSwissEllis7- I choose not to play Shamanic Revelation because my board state doesn't get too crazy till Gishath, Sun's Avatar hits the field. Is there any card that has a similar effect but for lands?

Thanks everyone!
