Who Ever Said I Was Going To Attack You?

Commander / EDH Casual Multiplayer Ramp RG (Gruul) Tokens Tribal

Description

This is one of my favorite decks to play, due to the fact that you don't even have to attack to win (milling is my favorite). I happened to pull Omnath, Locus of Rage from a booster pack and I thought, 'You know what... I like this card,' so I decided to make this deck around him. I included a few nice synergies but sadly no infinite combos (yet).

Omnath, Locus of Rage
Whenever I play with this deck, I try to win without attacking at all. Our strategy to achieve this is quite simple. First ramp to get out Omnath, Locus of Rage. Next, ramp more to get lots of tokens. Finally, sac the tokens to kill your opponent. However, sometimes token production isn't up to its full potential in which case I will attack if I need to.
  • Seething Pathblazer Sacs without a cost and boosts in case an attack is needed

  • Hearthcage Giant Also sacs without a cost and also boosts in case an attack is needed

  • Magmaw Sacs at the cost of , but deals an extra damage to whatever we choose

  • Claws of Gix Again sacs at the cost of , but we gain life

  • Bubbling Cauldron Sacs at the cost of and only one creature per turn, but we gain four life and sustain blockers just in case

  • Descent of the Dragons Deals massive damage off of Omnath, Locus of Rage and gives us 4/4 flyers in return, also removes any annoying creatures opponents may have

  • Soulblast Say you have Omnath, Locus of Rage and four of his tokens out... quite easily achievable. This deals 3 per elemental... of which there are five, so a total of 15 there. Then it deals another 25 for the combined powers of those creatures. That's a solid 40 damage, lethal to pretty much anyone.

Any advice at all is much appreciated. Feel free to make suggestions and check out my other decks below! Thanks!!!

Looks like you are running an elemental heavy version. You definitely need more sac outlets like Altar of Dementia and Ashnod's Altar. Rite of the Raging Storm would be great in an omnath deck too. I run a landfall version, feel free to checkout my primer for more ideas.

Thanks mamemoo,

I agree this deck could definitely use more sac outlets... I'll put those two on the maybe board for now until I get them. You might of missed it, but I do have Rite of the Raging Storm in my deck list, and yes it is great in an Omnath deck. I'll check out your primer also and see if there's anything I like.

Thanks for the advice and draw well.

No problem lucal13. Since you like milling, Altar of the Brood might be a good addition to your deck.

I can't say that I haven't thought about it... but that (sadly) strays from the deck's main idea.

Have you looked at warstorm surge or where ancients tread

Hiya swampy5,

I really like both those cards... I'll probably only add Warstorm Surge because it works with all my creatures, but if I can find room I'll put both in.

Thanks for the suggestions! :D

No worries. I run a landfall version of this deck, a card that I also think you might like is elemental mastery

The one problem with that card is the tokens are removed from the game rather than destroyed so they don't trigger Omnath's ability other wise it would be perfect!

Chandra's Ignition is a board wipe that can actually function as a win con more often than not. I cannot recommend it enough!

Have a look at my deck, they function differently, but I also like to chill behind my elementals not making any enemies and win the game out of nowhere without many attacks declared.

I never considered Sultai Flayer nor the interactions between Retreat to Kazandu and creatures with remove-a-counter abilities. Certainly going on my test-list!

Omnath is great and is one of the most requested of my decks on my playgroup. +1 given!

Thanks a lot GS10! Omnath comes with a great strategy... amass an army without make enemies and then kill.... without attacking! If I can find one I'll definitely add Chandra's Ignition in there it's great card I gotta say.

I'll check out your deck too see if I can improve mine!

Thanks again,Luca :)

Sorry for the late reply, I usually just sac the tokens from elemental mastery to ashnod's altar if they don't die in combat.It puts the opponent between a rock and a hard place, either way they take the damage

I would put Doubling Season in this deck which will double the number of tokens you will make per landfall trigger. Also, another card that will do that it Primal Vigor. :)

@ Dragonalex1112

Thanks for the suggestions. I would definitely use both those cards, as well as Parallel Lives, in this deck. However, I have small budget, so I don't think any of those cards will make it in soon unless I manage to trade for them. :(

Thanks for the comment and draw well!
