Omnath, Locus of Rage Grenades! EDH

Commander / EDH Ramp RG (Gruul)

Shea_O


The deck's theme is landfall, ramp, direct damage (burn), recursion, ETB abilities (removal, land fetch, draw) and pervasive Elemental tribal. Getting all of the deck's basic lands out by turns 7 - 9 happens more than I expected; at this point going infinite in any number of the above mentioned themes is possible.

NOTE** This deck is currently serving as a template for what I've got on my desk in front of me. I've avoided the inclusion of fetch lands (and other high co$t lands) in this build, as I don't personally own any yet. There may be some added someday!

------>Broken interactions (good thing!):

  1. Strionic Resonator + most of the deck = broken

  2. Cloudstone Curio + any land/creature = endless landfall/ETB triggers

  3. Amulet of Vigor + Scapeshift /Boundless Realms/ Animist's Awakening = infinite combo pieces (now think of adding Omnath, Locus of Rage + Perilous Forays )

  4. Omnath, Locus of Mana = Green mana never goes away & incredible ramp

  5. Earthcraft . Mana Echoes. Need I say more?

  6. Lotus Cobra = BROKEN

  7. Omnath, Locus of Rage + Goblin Bombardment = Elementals go BOOM when they die (hence no broad hexproof granting cards in the deck....boardwipes become very consequential)

  8. Omnath, Locus of Rage + Warstorm Surge + Where Ancients Tread = Elementals go BOOM!! Grenades for everybody!

  9. Burgeoning + Ghost Town = landfall on your opponent's turns! Also Undiscovered Paradise is recurring landfall.

  10. Want infinite land drops tied to infinite land destruction? Hitting a landfall wall at turn 7 or 9 because ALL your basics are already in play? NOTE: Sylvan Safekeeper grants Shroud, so target the Elemental tokens (only gonna get one target per land sac), one could end up sacrificing the Elementals for other needs. Each land you sac is gonna be coming back as a new 5/5 Elemental to target anyways, effectively endless targets.

STEP 1: Sylvan Safekeeper or Keldon Firebombers to get lands into graveyard. Make sure you have Amulet of Vigor out too. If not then Earthcraft lets you tap each new Elemental to untap the incoming lands. Cloudstone Curio + Eternal Witness to get your land search spells back.

STEP 2: Now that Your deck has no more basics in it: Hermit Druid is going to put your entire deck into your graveyard. THIS IS OK! As soon as Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre hits your grave everything goes back into the deck. Rinse and repeat for endless landfall. This task is made easier with Evolutionary Leap , Survival of the Fittest, Birthing Pod, Loaming Shaman, Grave Sifter .
