Where Ancients Tread Discussion

hibuddy1234 Thanks for your comment. I will consider to include both Phyrexian and Ashnod's Altar and with them Skullclamp but i want to play this deck more because at the moment i do not play it that much. But i have also some cards i probably take out ( for example Where Ancients Tread,it is to slow and with Warstorm Surge i already have one that is better.

In the long run i think i want to play with nore basic lands(about 25) to play cards like Boundless Realms, Amulet of Vigor and Perilous Forays. Those cards seems so good for Omnath. :)

About Fetches...... I am not a friend to play off color fetches... for me it does not feel right :D. -> Therefore i want to include more basic that the strategy is more about playing more basic lands and fetch them with those great basic Fetchlands.

One suggestion comes immediately: Wild Pair. The card is perfect for tribal decks. Explosive Vegetation is more vital ramp. Plus, Sarkhan's Triumph; a tutor for a dragon? Surely that is one of the first things to go into a deck? Where Ancients Tread could also be of use to you but is not a must.

And Scapeshift (Bit more expansive but worth it). Cast with your commander and 8 lands for example you get 8x 5/5 tokens and with Where Ancients Tread on the field you closeup games. Feel free, maybe you finde some inspiration -> It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time (Omnath-Commander)

Hey what do you think about Gruul Ragebeast now every of your landfalls gets 5 damage to a creature. Scapeshift is broken in this deck, it close up games especially when you have Where Ancients Tread on the field. Also you get a lot of triggers. Rite of the Raging Storm is a good and fun card in this deck. Feel free, maybe you can find some inspiration -> It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time (Omnath-Commander)

itachi45, a previous version of this deck ran those cards actually. What I found was that Mayael's Aria and Mighty Emergence became a "win more" condition rather than helping the consistency. Where Ancients Tread I had taken out because I felt it was too mana expensive. But I haven't tried it with Enlisted Wurm , which could cheat it out. Thanks for the suggestions!

Mayael's Aria seems doable. Also, Where Ancients Tread and Mighty Emergence are pretty fun.

I am a very simple human being: I see a alt-art of Tohru and I click on the deck. Pity you do not have alt-arts of Fafnir, Locula and Khana. Would have loved to see that! I do have a few suggestions for the deck. Wild Pair would be a good addition to the deck. Boltwing Marauder is a pretty good dragon. Crucible of Fire gives a boost to every dragon. Lathliss, Dragon Queen should have an honourable place in this deck. Dragon's Hoard is fun and on theme. Where Ancients Tread is a maybe but it is thematic. You may want to consider Living Death as some recurrsion.

I hope this has helped!

Some suggestions from a fellow Scion of Ur-Dragon EDH player:

Mana rocks that fix colours are your friend in a deck that can run such high mana costs! Stuff like the Ravnica Signets can do a significant amount in fixing your colour bases in the early game. I put all 10 into my deck and I have never regretted it.

You're on the right track with finding means to lower the costs. Things like Urza's Incubator , Urza's Filter , Elvish Piper can add a lot of redundancy to the deck along with the ones you already have in there.

What do the Nicol Bolas walkers do in the deck that are vital to the strategy? Personally I find Sarkhan (The Mad especially) does a lot more when it comes do a dragon heavy deck.

Things like Where Ancients Tread can do a significant amount of damage as well just by you playing your Dragons.

Overall it looks like a decently solid EDH deck.
