Vigor

Creature — Elemental Incarnation

Trample

If damage would be dealt to another creature you control, prevent that damage. Put a +1/+1 counter on that creature for each 1 damage prevented this way.

When Vigor is put into a graveyard from anywhere, shuffle it into its owner's library.

Btw, a fun combo for this deck, casting Blasphemous Act with Vigor in play. Synergies really well with your counter focused deck.

Druid of the Anima is also not legal in this deck as it has a white mana symbol. Just a heads up. A few cards that I have had perform well are: Strength of the Tajuru, Verdurous Gearhulk, Vigor, Everflowing Chalice... I just realize there's a few kicker cards you are missing. Let me know if you want more ideas. You can easily ignore any and all if you like. :)

Hey dude, thought I'd comment it on here.

So let's round out my observations before we move to my opinions.

Win Conditions you have included are: Rolling Stones , Assault Formation , Wakestone Gargoyle , Vent Sentinel and Dragonshift. Of those, Wakestone doesn't really have a way to go off unless another win con is already out. So Wakestone + 1 or Vent Sentinel and Dragonshift are the only current ways to win a game.

Subthemes Detected:

Lifegain- Jaddi Offshoot , Perimeter Captain , Wall of Essence. All decent lifegain, Jaddi is good early, Perimeter is good mid, and Wall of essence is good all game, but particularly mid.

Tokens- Coral Barrier , Hornet Nest , Golden Guardian  Flip , Sprouting Phytohydra , Dragon Fodder , Parallel Lives , Kiora, the Crashing Wave. Coral Barrier does provide an evasion creature, and 1/1's with evasion are often under-rated. Hornet nest is great if you can keep it alive, and okay if it dies. Golden Guardian is an okay card if you can get some tokens out of it, but it doesn't die to anything in your deck right now. Sprouting Hydra is probably the best token card in this deck as it lines up with all of your themes, it has serious potential for combos. Dragon fodder doesn't belong here. Swap it out for a late game threat like Vigor for wall wins, or Luminarch Ascension if you plan to keep the token theme. Parallel lives is at best okay in this deck, if you had more than 10 things that made tokens, I would say its definitely important. Kiora is an okay planeswalker but I'll talk about her in a second.

Ramp- Ok so there's not enough of it. Overgrown Battlement , Ulvenwald Captive  Flip , Sol Ring, Cryptolith Rite. Commander games are won by casting several cards in a turn. Firm believer that if you have green, you run green ramp. Period. Bonus, Ulvenwald Captive is terrible ramp.

Card Draw- You're covered here. I think you have enough card draw.

Planeswalkers- Special Note, I think Kiora is a fun planeswalker, but she's not amazing in this deck. It'd be better to see something like Ajani Goldmane , or Elspeth, Sun's Champion for added tokens, boardwipes, and counters, as well as their emblems enable your win conditions.

Ok so now I'll start by suggesting things you could add to this deck.

Wall of Denial - My favorite Wall.

Tree of Redemption - Can get ugly dude. 0/40 is kinda great in a lifegain deck.

Kodama's Reach - good solid ramp.

Cultivate - Same as above.

Comet Storm - You have ramp, play a ramp board clear.

Kindred Summons - Pick wall.

Fireball - Very versatile in rampy decks.

Vandalblast - You have red, you need good artifact hate.

Supreme Verdict - Favorite Board Wipe

Wrath of God - AKA the Reset Button

Azorius Signet - Ramp

Izzet Signet - Ramp

Aetherflux Reservoir - Can become a win condition (that can be fetched with fabricate) if you have a strong life gain game.

Ajani Goldmane - Can combo with some win cons, has good passive benefits from behind the army of walls.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion - Same reasons as Ajani, but can also board clear creatures with 3 or greater power, so not your walls.

Now we move on to cards I suggest removing.

Ludevic's Test Subject  Flip - Dead weight. You will never want to pay mana for this ability, and if you do you are definitely losing it to removal. Not worth the investment.

Murmuring Phantasm - It's not bad, it just doesn't provide an additional benefit. You could find a better card for sure.

Ulvenwald Captive  Flip - By the time you have 7 mana to pay for the ability you are already playing your better cards. Just put in a bigger late game threat.

Golden Guardian  Flip - Only remove this if you elect not to add several 4 power or greater creatures to the deck.

Abrade - Swap for better removal. I suggest Comet Storm, or Vandalblast.

Arcane Denial - I'd personally trade it for a dozen other draw spells. Opt or Brainstorm or Ancestral Vision if you got it.

Lightning Helix - Okay so IDK what this is in here for. Its a good card in a tempo deck. You can do bigger and better with 2 mana. Play the long game.

Tower Defense - I'll admit, this can rarely win a game. However, Vigor Will just win you the game.

Ghostway - Looks okay with EtB triggers. Is good against boardwipe, but honestly, you have walls. They probably won't die that often, and if they do, you won't be bouncing more than 2-3 back to your hand. Is that honestly worth holding up 3 mana?

Colfenor's Urn - Maybe I don't understand the benefit. Run something like Sun Titan.

Parallel Lives - Get to the 10+ token generators, and this card is waaaaaaay better. As it stands now you may get 2-4 extra tokens in a game, if you draw it.

These cards are absolutely NESSECARY in any omnath deck and will give you a HUGE advantage in any game.

These are cards that, I run in my deck because they all are apart of my gameplan to combo out and kill all of the players at the table, and I play in a 6 man pod.

And if you want to play test the combo version of the deck, or just do me a solid and upvote the deck, here it is

I think Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire's ability can't hit those with Hexproof and Shroud since he still targets them: "When Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire attacks, for each player, choose target permanent player controls."

Anyway, I think that your average CMC is a bit high at 5.00. I have been playtesting my own version with an average CMC of 4.07 and I find myself durdling a lot early, which sucks against my friend's Mogis, God of Slaughter group slug deck. Your mileage might vary depending on your playgroup though.

You could probably replace Darigaaz Reincarnated and Vigor with Awakening Zone and From Beyond. The first two don't seem to have much synergy with the rest of the deck (Darigaaz is slow, Vigor feels "win-more"), while the latter produce tokens which are both ramp and sac fodder.

Ecmdrw5 on Does Vigor save my Blizzard ...

My opponent is attacking with Master of Cruelties. I have Vigor and a Blizzard Specter on the board. I'm blocking with Blizzard Specter. Because of Vigor and his prevent damage and add +1/+1 for each damage prevented, my Blizzard Specter should live and get (1) +1/+1 correct?
