Vernal Bloom Discussion
1 week ago
Here is a list of ramp cards from my Omnath, Locus of Mana Commander Deck:
- Arbor Elf
- Boundless Realms
- Courser of Kruphix
- Elvish Mystic
- Elvish Piper
- Emerald Medallion
- Frontier Siege
- Gaea's Touch
- Gyre Sage
- Llanowar Elves
- Nature's Lore
- Nissa's Pilgrimage
- Sakura-Tribe Elder
- Search for Tomorrow
- Skyshroud Claim
- Somberwald Sage
- Vernal Bloom
- Whisperer of the Wilds
- Wild Growth
- Wood Elves
- Zendikar Resurgent
And here are some also very effective, but more expensive options:
I would recommend removing:
- Archers' Parapet, since you don't run black and a 0/5 wall isn't great.
- Gift of Paradise, since paying 3 mana for only one extra mana per turn is not ideal and there are better ramp options.
Here is my full Omnath Deck if you would like to see more options:
Hope this helps.

I'm a huge fan of Primordial Hydra If you draw it early on you can pay 3-5 mana for it but if you keep it on the field for a few turns that grows out of proportion. I would recommend using something else for the two card spots that Vernal Bloom takes whether that be another planeswalker to increase probability of drawing it during the game, Master of the Wild Hunt for tokens Thrun, the Last Troll can be a solid addition, or maybe an instant like Beast Within to help deal with opponent's creatures. Honorable mentions for the 4 drop spot Vengevine Oracle of Mul Daya

if ur playing Arbor Elf, you might want to consider adding Utopia Sprawl to open up the ability to play a Vernal Bloom on turn two, though it's a good bit less budget. Playing Utopia Sprawl also allows you to splash colors (if you would ever want to). Utopia Sprawl could also let you play a one or two-of Inferno Titan, which is a very good finisher that also lets you interact with your opponent's board. Not having any mountains in the manabase probably wouldn't be a problem either, since ur only playing one or two copies of them and most of the time you'd just search them out with a Tooth and Nail (and that's only in situations when you'd need to be able to interact with your opponent).

You sound a little hostile there the_monogreen_h3dr0n_c0llector. There are so many ways to build a deck, you can even buy a Commander product from Wally World for like 40 bucks that plays pretty damn well, I know, I've played against some of them, or you can spend upwards of a couple of thousand dollars for a deck. Play what you like...pay what you like. Omnath can be built any number of ways and I have probably built him in most of those ways myself before settling on this build.
Even if you want to build Omnath in the way that I currently have him, you don't have to spend crazy money. Like for instance, you don't have to buy a $60 Karn Liberated when you can spend a few cents on a Scour from Existence and basically get the same effect I use Karn for in this deck. It may even be better since the exile effect is at instant speed rather than sorcery speed.
You can replace Extraplanar Lens and all the snow covered lands with something like Vernal Bloom and save another $30. Three Visits at $65 is the same card with a different name as Nature's Lore which is about a buck, and nobody says you have to have both.
You don't have to have a $45 Survival of the Fittest in the deck when there are so many good tutor cards out there. So replace that card with something like Wild Pair for like 40 cents, or Living Wish or Ring of Three Wishes or Time of Need or whatever.
I haven't even given this a whole lot of thought and I've already knocked $200 off the price of the deck without hurting it much at all. It's all about small increments. Is card "A" just a tiny bit better than card "B"? It's the kind of thing I grind over.
I'm sure your deck plays perfectly well, but there's no need to get all pissy about someone else's build. Build your deck the way you want and let other people do the same.

A Vernal Bloom might help, it isn't quite as group-huggy as other mana doublers.
Use a Doubling Cube to go from huge to outrageous w/ Omnath.
Fun build, +1.
