Winding Canyons Discussion

thuih on Omnath EDH

@ace247

Never noticed it said "both your main phases" on Frontier Siege. That's twice as good as I thought it was...

Added in Winding Canyons and Yeva, Nature's Herald. Felt strange to take out Genesis, but it's been a dead draw for me many times (might just be the meta I play in). Also could get rid of Acidic Slime, but damn I do love tutorable artifact/land destruction.

Also took out Extraplanar Lens (has gotten me 2 for 1ed too many times) and Time of Need (honestly just leftover from when Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary was legal).

Thanks for the suggestions yo!

Aluren, Winding Canyons, Yeva, Nature's Herald, and Vedalken Orrery will all let you recast Omnath at instant speed.

This is important because if Omnath is destroyed on your opponents turn and you have a ton of mana in your mana pool, you can save that mana by recasting Omnath before the end of the phase when the mana empties.

Also, Frontier Siege is great ramp for Omnath decks and i'm confused about why you don't have it.

Hey there,

Great deck bud. It handles well and can basically play the whole deck before turn 10. With that being said there are a few suggestions I have that can make sure that last turn where you start dropping all your bombs is even better.

  1. I cannot see any way in which your deck wouldn't absolutely benefit from Akroma's Memorial. It's tutorable, colorless, and you easily hit the mana to drop it between Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx & Gaea's Cradle.

  2. Boseiju, Who Shelters All is another tutorable land that is nothing but value as you have little answers to counterspells.

  3. Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger as you deck has some high cost cards that I concede you have no issue in dropping, but he is both aggro and control that you can tutor for.

  4. Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant as great early protection. You can even drop him before Sisay if you draw him.

  5. Iona, Shield of Emeria will be a great way to lock down most opponents.

  6. Vedalken Orrery so that you can flash without Winding Canyons and without the restriction of Yeva, Nature's Herald.

  7. Any Eldrazi titan

  8. Either or both of Myojin of Life's Web & Myojin of Cleansing Fire.

A few cards I would take out for these include

Most of these could be wrong to remove or add against your playgroup's meta, but this is just what I would change.

Still like the deck a lot.

MythicalMythic on Om Nom Nath

Just voted this deck up - I'm known on MTGO as Poisonous currently, one of many aliases. I also just witnessed this deck handing the room it's asses in a free for all! lol That's why I'm here, and thank yooouuuu very much.

As I said in the game though, I'm definitely adding Winding Canyons and I wouldn't care about the 40 land thing, I don't make a deck in EDH without 40 lands, period. I should start posting my other builds on here for any suggestions, but I'm so conservative about it lol I only share when asked. Roots of Life + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth! Try it sometime maybe it will pull removal targets from opponents because of their value - as opposed to your other more essential perms. I'm also going to run Diamond Valley for another source in case the well is tapped, and Deserted Temple to mitigate that tapping out of prime lands.

Hmm Emzed, I didn't even know about Heroic Intervention. I guess I'll have to include it on my want list. Thanks for the heads-up.

You're right about redundancy, Grantley91, but I do have that feature with Bear Umbra, or cards that will immediately pop Omnath (or a copy of Omnath) back out after being destroyed in order to protect the mana pool. Cards like Winding Canyons, Savage Summoning, Yeva, Nature's Herald, Nim Deathmantle and Mirrorpool protect the mana pool, which forgoes the need to keep Omnath himself protected to some extent.

Unfortunately, as sometimes happens, none of this stuff was on the field when I got Wrathed in that game. /:-(
