Verdant Confluence Discussion

Hey VincentVonVeltschmerz! I think Verdant Confluence is just ok. For 6 mana I want to either be slapping down a dragon or something a little more potent. WhichKing is right - I need to focus on more draw effects vs. ramp/recursion/combat tricks. I'm thinking of doing a mini list overhaul to accommodate some draw.

Building and testing my Omnath, Locus of Rage deck I realized that 2 mana for fetching a basic land is good, 4 mana for fetching two lands is great, but 6 mana for fetching three lands is a terrible deal. If you are casting such an expensive sorcery you should get a way bigger effect on its own before adding any synergies. Boundless Realms is a great card but Nissa's Renewal and Verdant Confluence are lacking heavily.
Getting three cards form graveyard from Verdant Confluence instead is okayish, but for that end is way better Seasons Past it usually gets me five to seven cards form the graveyard.
Traverse the Outlands is just a lower cost sorcery that in this deck will usually fetch you at least five lands.
I'd also add some sacrifice outlets such as Goblin Bombardment, Ashnod's Altar, Altar of Dementia, Breeding Pit, High Market, maybe even Skullmulcher, three of them should be good enough. Being able to kill your elementals on command in order to trigger Omanth is crucial.
You may have troubles with flyers so I'd swap Molten Disaster for Chain Reaction, in multiplayer it will be like a second Blasphemous Act.
Ulvenwald Hydra will also be a nice response to flyers. It isn't an elemental but it still synergizes greatly with the deck mechanics. I also like Cloudthresher and Tornado Elemental to fight those pesky flyers.
Spitebellows is a good removal for an Omnath deck, when yopu evoke it you can get a lot of triggers for just three mana.

Alright, so Arahbo isn't all that great with loads of artifacts. Arahbo is a tribal general,so play into that theme a bit more.You really should run more creatures and ramp, I think. Your land count is fine, maybe even high. You've got 4 ramp spells and 3 Rocks.
Artifacts: I'd trim a few to get just rocks (You're running 3) and good equipment. Things to keep would be Sword of the Animist, Boots/Greaves, Bloodforged Battle-Axe and Heirloom blade. You want things which provide advantage beyond combat and are useful on any creature. I'd suggest Selesnya Signet, Commander's Sphere, Selesnya Cluestone and Mind Stone as they provide ramp and late game draw. Pillar of Origins is also an option. As for the maybeboard, I'd add only Thaumatic Compass Flip and Vanquisher's Banner.
Creatures: This is one of those weird tribes where they have options, but not enough. I think Felidar Sovereign and Regal Caracal are great for you. I also like Mirror Entity and Chameleon Colossus. If there're any clones or things like Polyraptor you can use, I'd suggest looking into it.
Enchantments: Authority and Sigarda's Aid aren't that great here. Aid wants to be in a Sram or Balan deck, Authority wants a different format. I'm not sold on Zendikar's Resurgence either. I've limited experience with it outside of discarding it. I'd suggest running Quest for Renewal as I think you're aggressive enough for it. Growing Rites and Overwhelming Splendor are fine here, I think. I'd also suggest Growing Ranks, Beastmaster Ascension and anthem effects like Gaea's Anthem, True Conviction, Spear of Heliod, Collective Blessing, so on and so forth.
Sorceries: I don't think the maybeboard options are any good for you. Overrun is a oneshot anthem, and Appeal to Authority is a meh combat trick. I also dislike Harvest Season, Hunter's Prowess, Soul's Majesty and Rout. You should consider Sylvan Scrying, Wrath of God, Rishkar's Expertise, and stuff like Primal Command, Dromoka's Command, Righteous Confluence, Verdant Confluence, Crib Swap, etc. You really want versatility and some removal.
Feel free to test and play around with these or other cards. Don't feel like you need to cut something that's working just because I say so.

Thanks for your suggestions chadsansing.
Of the recursion cards you've listed (aside from Regrowth which is in the deck already), I think I like Noxious Revival the most because I can use it while tapped out, at instant speed, and even aggressively. The others seem a bit less useful because I don't expect to be discarding lands early game unless I am on the defensive, and because I think Scouting Trek would work better to stack my deck.
Right now I kind of just want to pick ten cards from my maybeboard that round out the deck.

Maybe a Mulch? Stoic Builder, Verdant Confluence, Regrowth, Reclaim, Noxious Revival, Cartographer, Devour in Flames, Firewild Borderpost, Grapple with the Past, and Pulse of Murasa might be good to test as cards that return lands to your hand or the top of your deck.
