Description

Some Elementals Like Watching the World Burn

Angry Omnom

Burn/Combo deck featuring Omnath, Locus of Rage at helm. This is my main EDH I play while playing a more casual game.

Introduction

Show

Originally my Mina and Denn, Wildborn deck, I switched to Xenagos, God of Revels due to having most of the cards already and the latter having more bang for buck. I then switched back due to me loving the landfall mechanic. I finally switched to Angry Omnath because I realized that he is more potent as commander, and Mina and Denn were perfectly fine in the 99.

The deck has evolved greatly ever since I initially created it, and I'm happy to say that I traded for a majority of the more expensive cards in the deck. I do not use any infinite combos, but there is one combo that fetches all the basic lands out of the deck. Despite being , you don't always have to attack to win because you can win through burning the table with Omnath, Warstorm Surge or Where Ancients Tread.

Budget

Show

So I'm on a restrained budget, like with pretty much all my decks. The maximum budget for this deck is around $110, but this is subject to change later on.

Wincons

Show

Like every good EDH deck, this has its fair share of winning:

  • This deck can technically combo out via Amulet of Vigor + Omnath, Locus of Rage + Perilous Forays to fetch out all your basics and burn your opponent(s) to a crisp. While this is not an infinite combo because you can only have so many basics in your deck, you can still win by dealing a substantial amount of damage and then attacking weakened opponents.

  • Resolving Chandra's Ignition targeting Omnath with a bunch of elementals out is a game-ender.

  • Perilous Forays + Omnath + Rampaging Baloths + another one of these three results in massive token swarm. Add in cards like Stalking Vengeance, Warstorm Surge and the likes for even more burn!

  • Come on.. it's Gruul.. and tokens.. what other better way to win than GRUUL SMASH!!

I am very familiar with Omnath, it is one of the decks that does the best in my play group. My buddy omnath runs 50 lands even, and he runs out of lands some games. That said, there are some changes I would make

Akoum Hellkite - High mana cost for a weak effect, does not help the ultimate goal

Purphoros, God of the Forge is a much better card. I know you are on a budget, but this is a great addition. It does the job better, is harder to destroy, and costs less to get out.

I forgot, Ghost Town is a great land to have, guaranteeing landfall triggers every turn.

DrCreamy I'm planning on bumping up the price of Omnath soon, actually so I'm open to cards that will be more optimal. I do agree that Akoum Hellkite is an underperformer in this deck, so no hard feelings to removing it.

Raging_Squiggle I remember Ghost Town being mentioned, and might as well add it in haha, it's a nice way to trigger Omnath's ability after going off and you have no more fuel.

Thanks for the suggestions!

This is totally going to be meta dependent, but what are your thoughts on Tempt with Vengeance? Even better with a sac outlet, but hilarious to just attack into a bunch of blockers. Bolts to the brain?

IT's an interesting deck, but not a mechanic I'm particularly familiar with, personally. Have you considered getting the Tron lands for this deck? And maybe Tempt with Discovery? More ramp never hurt anyone.

SaifurCommander Now that Tempt with Discovery's price has dropped, I think it's a perfect addition to the deck! Do you have any suggestions as for what to cut for it, potentially? The Tron Lands are good, but I don't think I'd need the colorless mana they produce. Thanks for the suggestion!

I would probably replace Shamanic Revelation for Tempt with Discovery. Substituting draw power with more land drop with a commander that legit works on land drops is never a bad thing.

The card advantage you want is board presence more than hand size, I think.

A friend of mine uses Ashnod's Altar in his omnath deck as a sac outlet and to pay for his more expensive cards. You could swap Hour of Promise for Skyshroud Claim. Hour lets you dig out lands that fetch other lands like Terramorphic Expanse netting you 4 elementals compared with skyshroud getting 2 forests/elementals.

lostcactus89 I have tried fitting in Ashnod's Altar, it's just I haven't gotten one yet to figure out what to swap for it. It's a very good card in this deck! Feel free to make suggestions for swap-outs!

I personally was thinking Ranger's Path because Claim puts any forest untapped onto the battlefield too. I'm happily up for debate. :)
