My new alternate Omnath build based on A Michael Bay Film, Omnath: Age of Explosions! v3. Also, check out 8x8 Theory: Omnath, Locus of Rage which is mentioned in YouTube video "5 New Ways to Improve EDH Deckbuilding" by TheTsoTsoGamer. Hyperlinks aren't working in the description so here is the link:

Primer coming soon! Just note that my playgroup is full of a$$holes and their decks say it all. I just want to stay competitive with those jerks, so I must ask for your help, from all of you in the MtG community, to help construct the best Omnath deck! Any and all suggestions are welcome. Together as a community, you can help make it possible to crown me, king a$$hole, of my playgroup. Please, don't forget to upvote!

Some of the commander decks I face regularly would be: Scion of the Ur-Dragon, The Gitrog Monster, Norin the Wary, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Jhoira of the Ghitu, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Vial Smasher the Fierce, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Maelstrom Wanderer, Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper, Sliver Overlord, Sharuum the Hegemon, Uril, the Miststalker, Geist of Saint Traft, Ramos, Dragon Engine, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Taigam, Ojutai Master.

Operation: Omnath, Locus of Armageddon! The game plan is simple. The goal is to ramp as much as possible early on, cast Omnath on turn 3-6. Build a comfortable board state and unleash the fiery of land destruction. Use such cards as Splendid Reclamation, Life from the Loam, Crucible of Worlds and/or Ramunap Excavator to reclaim your lands. Punish those who reject your claim to the a$$hole throne with Blood Moon or even a Stranglehold. Scorch your enemies with your elementals + Purphoros, God of the Forge, Where Ancients Tread and Warstorm Surge then annihilate them with hellfire from Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and a combination of Vesuva, Thespian's Stage and Scapeshift. For total Armageddon use Lotus Cobra/Amulet of Vigor + Perilous Forays or Tooth and Nail for Avenger of Zendikar + Purphoros, God of the Forge for world domination.

Heroic Intervention can save your board when playing some LD spell.

How do you win before turn 5 in a multiplayer game?

Starsky2814 says... #5

Podkomorka, I have won in the following fashion in multiplayer:

Turn 1 - Forest, Exploration, land, Amulet of Vigor.

Turn 2 - Lotus Cobra, fetch land then fetch, Crucible of Worlds, fetch from graveyard, Azusa, Lost but Seeking, fetch from graveyard two more times, Phyrexian Altar.

Turn 3 - fetch land from graveyard but don't fetch, Omnath, Locus of Rage, crack fetch land, elemental, fetch from graveyard three more times, six more elementals, sac two elementals for mana, Tooth and Nail entwine for Purphoros, God of the Forge and Avenger of Zendikar, ten plant tokens.

Turn 4 - fetch from graveyard four times, eight more elementals, Scapeshift for 14 lands, or sac the current elementals for finishing damage to not overkill I guess. Ummm gg everyone!

Damn thats one hell of a god hand+. I did read that your deck is a kind of version of that really popular Omnath deck on tappedout. I'm concerned with the competitive tag for the lists as they very rarely win on the turns competitive edh decks play at, let alone interact enough with other players to stop them from winning just as early. Even less top tier competitive metas fight to win on turns 3, 4, and 5 every game, its not just a god hand its consistently the same.

Podkomorka, damn! It sounds like you play against worse a$$holes than the ones in my meta. Hat off to you sir!

I would admit, as I don't want to give anyone the wrong impression about the competitiveness of the deck because I have only been able to win with Omnath turn 4 or 5 a handful of times. With that being said, I can consistently get there turn 6-8, if blue and white aren't slowing me down. So I took advice from a few players and constructed this deck with LD to help set back those who do try and combo off early game.

So my challenge for you, as a side project, is for you to create what you consider a competitive Omnath build using any legal cards. I know he isn't the very top tier commander, but it would help me out a lot from a learning standpoint. For a little backstory, I haven't been playing for a full year yet with MtG, so I am still a student to the game and I am looking to be competitive and looking for top tier mentorship. Please share with me the build if you accept my challenge.

Thank you for your help!

It's not about how you build omnath, its a matter of potential. Omnaths been around for plently long now. Even as soon as he was released no competitive players saw any potential in him. The best omnath deck someone can make wont be competitive edh viable, it would just be a good omnath deck.

And i dont think I play against assholes XD just because we play competitive edh and games end turn 4 everytime doesnt make us assholes, we enjoy what we play. And your group is the same in that way but not competitive im asuming from this list and the decks you listed as your playgroup.

I actually really like r/g edh, it's actually pretty fun. You should consider the original omnath Omnath, Locus of Mana. Also loving the mana fetch, you could speed it up with Courser of Kruphix. And for tokens of run Doubling Season and Parallel Lives. Additionally you could consider Burning-Tree Shaman, Mina and Denn, Wildborn, Oracle of Mul Daya, Rampaging Baloths, Atarka's Command, Gruul Charm, Signal the Clans, Clan Defiance, Ground Assault, Exploding Borders, Fires of Yavimaya, Xenagos, God of Revels. The list goes on. I might suggest you take a look at the gatherer, it has every card ever printed and an intelligent means to search for them

If you find time, you would like to hear your insight on my Ramos and Taigam reanimator decks :)
