I find birds a bit lackluster here. This is mostly elfball that uses Omnath, Locus of Mana as a battery for explosive plays. TBH I'd rather get Llanowar Elves in here over Birds of Paradise because Elvish Archdruid /Priest of Titania /Wirewood Channeler are dependent on the # of elves.
April 20, 2013 1:47 p.m.
Hhmm. I didn't take that into consideration. that's a great point! I am currently in the middle of making an Omnath EDH myself. When it is finished, if I posted a link here would you mind giving me some feedback? And a +1 from me.
April 20, 2013 2:05 p.m.
Of course! But keep in mind that my playstyle will probably vary from what you want to do.
April 20, 2013 2:53 p.m.
Skyshroud Poacher is an amazing elf that I just discovered. Surely it has a place in your deck?
April 21, 2013 12:40 p.m.
Ahhhh yes. I only have one concern with him though. At 4 cmc there aren't really many elves worth searching for. On the other hand the ones worth hunting for are VERY powerful and includes a Vedalken Orrery . I'll add it to my list of "to buy".

Do you ever use Elvish Piper for value? I run Ezuri, Renegade Leader elfball, and I had one in there, and I always found myself using my mana to cast spells, especially when Elvish Piper almost never has haste.
Of course, Omnoms saves mana. So you won't have a surplus ever. So I can see the difference there.

i know that it isn't an elf but what about Eternal Witness ?
August 12, 2013 7:59 p.m.
you know, My reason for not having her in here at first was the "I don't own one and I'm too lazy tor buy one" excuse. Now that I own a few I might add her. What would you remove?
August 12, 2013 8:02 p.m.
to be honest, i would drop Giant Adephage , i have just never been a fan of it and it can be killed kind of easily (Doom Blade effects), or Garruk Wildspeaker . i have never been a fan of either card.
August 12, 2013 8:05 p.m.
how does Primal Surge work for you? I feel that without a way to win the turn you cast it (i.e. global haste for your creatures or a combo), 1 wrath effect would just end the game for you if you didnt have a Praetor's Counsel in hand or an Elixir of Immortality effect to reset things for you.
September 27, 2013 2:13 p.m.
Have you thought about Nylea, God of the Hunt ? Most of the time it will be a creature, and it will give Omnath trample.
December 3, 2013 10:48 p.m.
I have, and I want to include her. Problem is access to her. Right now I don;t have one lol. As soon as I can I will add her.
December 3, 2013 10:54 p.m.
Also, since I haven't been on this decklist in a while. Eddelweiss Exploration doesn't really interest me because I am not trying to get multiple land drops. My aim is to get mana via mana dorks. The only reasons Oracle of Mul Daya is here is she counts towards my elf count and she facilitates my "combo" with Garruk's Horde and Soul of the Harvest /Primordial Sage . (Combo in that I can cast a creature, then draw a card and I can either play off of topdeck or out of hand. Oracle of Mul Daya helps to filter lands out in the early stages of this process.)

Droxium the tutor artifacts are here to tutor out Primal Surge and my other sorceries. I'm not so concerned with creature tutors because I already have Eye of Ugin , Green Sun's Zenith , and Skyshroud Poacher .
It's hard to find sorcery tutors in G.
December 15, 2013 2:25 p.m.
also, since you run Snow-Covered Forest s, why not Scrying Sheets ? also, Boreal Druid is an elf that allows for a turn 2 omnath (at least, that is what i would try to do every game). though it doesn't tutor for sorceries, how good would Birthing Pod do in here.
December 15, 2013 2:29 p.m.
My usual problem with a T2 Omnath, Locus of Mana is that he usually eats a T2 removal since there are very few threats out by that time. If I wanted to go that route I'd add Llanowar Elves and Elvish Mystic over Boreal Druid since they produce G.
I REALLY need to just get Scrying Sheets . I've been meaning to and just keep forgetting.
Birthing Pod might be interesting. Let me mess with the paper version of this, reordering the stuff and see what comes from it.
December 15, 2013 2:33 p.m.
After laying out the deck I have to say that Birthing Pod sounds good however there's really not much I'd like to pod into or out of. If I were to add it I think I'd have to revamp the whole creature base.

Nylea was only not included because I didn't have one laying around, since then I removed Acidic Slime for her.

Great deck +1 From Me
It would be awesome if you would check out my elf deck Mono Green Elf Deck and see if you could give me any suggestions.
January 19, 2014 5:08 p.m.
Fauna Shaman as an extra survival? or as a replacement to it?
January 24, 2014 12:01 a.m.
You seem to be heavy in the 4CC slot and your 1 and 2 slots are light on mana acceleration. Your late game is bonkers but I can tell the deck has some slow starts. I see a lot of people catching onto Gaea's Touch pretty nice for droping land quick then providing a 2 mana boost.
January 30, 2014 1:14 p.m.
These are the cards that would be top on my list to replace.
Elvish Piper - To fragile
Aluren - I think that the abuse potential for opponents is to high similar to the keeper
Skyshroud Poacher - There are just better tutors than this guy and ones that are cheaper and don't limit you to elves
I would always keep Sylvan Primordial
February 7, 2014 5:49 p.m.
February 7, 2014 6:06 p.m.
Good point. Terastodon can be back breaking. If you had to choose that I would go with Terastodon.

How about Polukranos, World Eater ?
Just started building a deck very similar to this. Polukranos is what I replaced Sylvan Primordial with. Also, Karametra's Acolyte could work well here. Also, what about Primeval Titan ? It can go get the Eye of Ugin .
Magus of the Candelabra combos really well with the doubling cards.
February 17, 2014 8:21 p.m.
February 17, 2014 8:25 p.m.
Also, Gaea's Cradle if you have infinite funds :-)
February 17, 2014 8:26 p.m.
Lots of ground to cover so I'll keep things short.
Polukranos, World Eater seems good, I'll test with this.
Magus of the Candelabra Not an elf and it takes 2-3 other cards to make him worthwhile. Also needs to be protected.
I currently have a ton of card draw. Regal Force would be my first go to if I ever find myself wanting.
Awakening I'm ok with people getting extra mana from some of my stuff. Allowing a control deck to tap out every turn for counter magic however is very not good.
February 18, 2014 9:22 a.m.
Gotta replace Sylvan Primordial now. A stupid ban imo but bans are bans. :/
February 18, 2014 1:13 p.m.
Voltaic Key only untaps once. I'd prefer to have repeatable untap effects and I'd rather have untap effects to untap mana dorks.
March 6, 2014 9:58 p.m.
A great card for this deck would be Staff of Domination . It takes one more mana to go infinite than Umbral Mantle or Sword of the Paruns , but when it does you also get infinite life, can draw your entire deck if you want to, and can tap out all of your opponent's creatures.
August 18, 2014 1:53 p.m.
Love it, +1. Currently building a similar style Omnath deck myself. Elfball ramp into some nasty X spells/creatures. Considered the Primal Surge route but found it too limiting. Been considering a Liege of the Tangle as an alternate wincon. What are your opinions on the card?
November 24, 2014 6:03 p.m.
The only issue I see with Liege of the Tangle is that if a wrath effect gets cast, all of your lands vanish. However, with that being said, time to play Devil's Advocate.... I like playing Nissa, Worldwaker because she can pull out lands as well as make them all creatures, allowing you to never get stalled out on mana and to thin for some win-cons. But again... that leaves for so much wrath effect... Maybe when the new set comes out, work on getting the green Siege. Each of your main phases, you get two green mana into your pool for Omnath, Locus of Mana to devour.

+1Great build. Will be using this a guide line for my omnom build. Taking out ulamog and kozilek. For void winnower and artisan of kozilek. Mostly to power down those drops due to meta. Thankz!
Also replacing rofellos becauze hes banned

I like your deck, do you think it can use an update?
February 2, 2016 11 p.m.
I have torn this deck many years ago lol. I ended up with Kruphix, God of Horizons elfball though.
February 3, 2016 12:01 a.m.
common man make it again :) for old omnath sake. :)
February 8, 2016 6:39 p.m.
My playgroup tends to run a lot of board wipes and in big mana decks i have had great success with Soul of New Phyrexia. It seems like it would be especially powerful with Omnath's ability to store mana over turns.
May 13, 2016 2:24 p.m.
@Ohthenoises: +1 for a great deck. I know you tore this deck apart and might not check this page at all, but would you mind giving my Omnath a peek? It's a bit more budget but has the same feel
