Traverse the Outlands Discussion

Goblin Bombardment could be a great alternative to Carnage Altar since I already have a ton of carddraw. But I usually "sacrifice" my creatures by attacking person A. As soon as I can (usually next turn, I am not in a hurry) I just attack. If it is being jumpblocked? One creature less. If it is being blocked to death? Bolt. If it goes through? 5 damage. It works, but it can be more efficient. However, I don't want the deck to be too powerful.
Anyways, thanks for the tips!

. Take out Elvish Mystic for Oracle of Mul Daya . Seedborn Muse and Vedalken Orrery is a self constructed Prophet of Kruphix . Take out Farseek for Traverse the Outlands , and also add Zendikar Resurgent and take out Madcap Skills , Dragon Tyrant by itself is very powerful and practically removal. Take out Farhaven Elf for Crash of Rhino Beetles or Utvara Hellkite . I suggest cutting 2 or 3 more creatures for Artifact Ramp. Honestly there are so many good creatures with Xenagos, God of Revels it doesn’t completely matter, and you should decide how you make it, but these are just some suggestions.

Interesting to see how different our strategies are! I'd suggest more land dump cards like Boundless Realms , Traverse the Outlands and Scapeshift . Playing any one of these with Omnath floods the board quickly.
Honestly, I typically win by using one of the above cards and then killing my Elemental token army I just built (you already have some idea of what I mean since you have Perilous Forays in here). Considering that, I'd also suggest some passive sacrifice outlets like Ashnod's Altar and Goblin Bombardment . The latter may be the sneakiest win condition in my deck. The former can be really great paired with something like Genesis Wave (and then hopefully you run into a haste card like Fires of Yavimaya or Hammer of Purphoros if you don't have one out already). Stalking Vengeance is an underrated card to milk more damage out of killing your own dudes. In the same vein, a couple more board wipes like Blasphemous Act and Chain Reaction can't hurt, and cost less than Obliterate .
Anyway, just a look into how I built my deck's strategy. Putting out an Elemental army is great - if you get a turn to attack with them, that is. Otherwise, I've found the most effective way to abuse Omnath's second ability, and kill my opponents in the swiftest way possible, is to kill my own army.

Many different players I know use the smothering tithe + wheel combo, but this requires a 1 out of 98 card to be on the field.
We have access to green, and should have easier and more reliable acceleration options. Traverse the Outlands always works perfect for me.

Hey VexenX, I really wouldn’t consider cutting Chord of Calling . I’ve been running Green Sun's Zenith almost solidly in this deck since it's inception right when Omnath, Locus of Rage came out and I would not underestimate our only instant speed to the battlefield tutor. I personally cut Sylvan Scrying for Elvish Reclaimer , still waiting to see if this was the correct choice but I think I value to the battlefield higher than to the hand in general even it's a little slow etc. I’d also agree with GeminiSpartanX regarding non-basic tutors. For me Traverse the Outlands is only a recent addition to the deck, I did not run it for the longest time as it was dependant on boardstate so isn't always relevant, however, that said it has been consistently strong since its inclusion in my deck. My meta's full of blue players so for me tutoring out Boseiju, Who Shelters All or Cavern of Souls is very important. If you inlcude Green Sun's Zenith then you may want to prioritise creature versions of our cards as we can tutor them into play, I for example run Sylvan Safekeeper over Lightning Greaves and had been running World Shaper too for that reason.

VexenX-if those are the only two options you're considering cutting for the elf, I would cut the Traverse the Outlands . It only gets basics, and getting an untapped non-basic is more important in many games, even if you only get one land for 4 mana like you often get with tempt. It's totally a preference choice though based on your experience.
