Where Ancients Tread Discussion

cyclinggamer on Omnath

Played in a five man pod last night. Might be the first time I've driven omnath correctly, but ramp, ramp, ramp some more, omnath, Where Ancients Tread, valakut as a distraction, Boundless Realms + Dictate of the Twin Gods to kill three of four opponents, leaving one to try to get past omnom and his seven new elementals.

Frustrated I didn't get my usual token and damage doublers, but 70 points of damage with eleven elementals on the field, plus a Perilous Forays in hand? just wow.

Crop Rotation is a land tutor/Landfall/Titania trigger.

Hammer of Purphoros and Fires of Yavimaya to make your Elementals hasty.

Wave of Vitriol and Blasphemous Act as sweepers the help you more than they hurt.

Elemental Bond, Harmonize and Skullclamp for card draw.

Warstorm Surge and Where Ancients Tread to add on damage.

Just a handful of suggestions for ya. I love Omnath, deck looks good so far.

Your curve as expected is super top heavy and you will usually be only be playing one threat a turn. Even though you are "Kaalia of the Vast-Ing" you may not want your top curve to swamp you. This was the challenge I Had with my old Jarad deck.

Being able to play a 2 drop and a 4 drop instead may be better than having 4 six drops in hand.

Answers to Board wipes I believe are a major concern for this deck. I would recommend Vexing Shusher for Heroic Intervention

Zetalpa, Primal Dawn is not power 5 or greater, you could go for Spearbreaker Behemoth If you like board wipe resiliency.

Ramp package is great although Thunderherd Migration could be replaced with Harrow for Instant speed better fixing.

Explore could be the new Broken Bond from the new set. Even better It could be a Wayward Swordtooth. You could even consider a 37th land instead.

Where Ancients Tread for Warstorm Surge? Hits power 4 or less.

Garruk's Packleader can easily replaced with Elemental Bond to keep the curve down and start drawing cards sooner.

Additional Cards to consider.

Armada Wurm

Kalemne's Captain is Bonkers good hate.

Siege Behemoth for those pesky token blockers

Worldspine Wurm

Let me know if any of it was any help.

First things first...Sakura-Tribe Elder and Sol Ring. By using Omnath, Locus of Rage with expensive dragons you want early and inexpensive ramp. Shaman of Forgotten Ways is also a great ramp for creature-heavy decks. I understand this aspires to be a budget deck so Burgeoning finds home here and not Exploration too. Take out Relentless Hunter for Rubblehulk. Take out Harbinger of the Hunt for Savage Ventmaw.

Zendikar's Roil is a bit slow and ineffective here as you don't focus on small tokens rather than big fat tokens from Omnath and creatures. Where Ancients Tread also finds home here it has won me lots of games (I also play EDH with this Omnath). Take out Peregrination for Cultivate it's essential to have cheap ramp spells. You can scry a lot more with Lifecrafter's Bestiary.

Wild Slash and Draconic Roar are awful in EDH. Instead have Comet Storm and perhaps Starstorm or Mizzium Mortars...Ground Assault, Hull Breach, Decimate and Vandalblast are all excellent removals for Gruul EDH.

In the end some good cards are: Elemental Bond for card draw. Rite of the Raging Storm which triggers both Elemental Bond,Omnath, Locus of Rage AND Where Ancients Tread. You can take out Revel of the Fallen God for it...it's not such a good card. Spellbreaker Behemoth to mess with those blue players out there. Gruul Turf, Naya Panorama, Terramorphic Expanse as for lands. Grave Sifter or Creeping Renaissance for turning the game to your advantage. And perhaps Mistcutter Hydra for a kill out of nowhere.

Where Ancients Tread would probably be better than a Purphoros, God of the Forge either way its great and should be in this Omnath deck

Some creatures that you may want to look into include:

Avenger of Zendikar - An elemental that makes more tokens that get stronger? Yes, please. A great card after board wipes to start rebuilding.

Greenwarden of Murasa Elemental 5/4 Eternal Witness that on death can get you another card.

Vigor Elemental staple that essentially makes most combat in your favor. Also if it would get put into the graveyard in any way, it gets shuffled back into your library.

Ramunap Excavator Don't have money for Crucible of Worlds ? This naga will do the job.

Sylvan Safekeeper So this guy is a good protector of creatures you control, especially with Ramunap Excavator. Also, he can win you the game with a four card combo. With Omnath, Locus of Rage and either Where Ancients Tread or Warstorm Surge sacrifice a decent amount of lands to Sylvan Safekeeper, then use Splendid Reclamation to bring all the lands back, making that many elementals and blowing an opponent out of the water.

Some non-creature cards to check out:Splendid Reclamation outside of that combo, this card is good for picking up lands that for one reason or another ended up in your graveyard. It also really sticks it to the mill decks.

Greater Good essentially lets you dig 5 cards deep for answers for usual the cost of an elemental. An easy way to draw cards and do damage. Goes well with some of the already mentioned cards. Also, it has real-life flavor text. Rare for cards now

Shamanic Revelation Draw cards and gain life. nothing to hate here.

Chain Reaction Sometimes you are going to need a board wipe. This spell will be your best option, as usually its a high enough number of creatures on your side alone to burn out the boards creatures. Couple this with Vigor and your playgroup will start picking up their cards, yielding to your overwhelming force.

Boseiju, Who Shelters All VERY IMPORTANT LAND. This thing makes sure your haymaker instants and sorceries go unquestioned. Praetor's Counsel , Splendid Reclamation ,Chain Reaction ,Second Harvest ,Boundless Realms: Boseiju has your back.

oh, and I guess a Gravity Well or Raking Canopy if flyers are an issue. Hope this wordy mess helps! +1
