Said on Omnath, A Song …...

#1

s5553339, I didn’t want to build around having Food Chain in this deck. It was an idea to do so when I first started the construction, but I already have two decks that use Food Chain and I didn’t feel like it would be fun to build another. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Sacrificing Flagstones of Trokair to Crop Rotation has been great. I'm glad you recommended it.

For the most part, Nature's Lore, is for having in the opening hand to get Omnath out on turn 3, but you can’t go wrong with having a land tutor like, Sylvan Scrying, either.

So, I have yet to pull off an awesome turn 4 W, as you have, rkjunior. Though, I’m at least, consistently, getting there on turn 5. Assuming, everything goes unanswered that is. My board presence has been insane in all these testings. I can’t wait to get some actual games in, against my play group.

I have ran Strip Mine in all of my Omnath decks, but because Omnath, Locus of Creation can’t make use of colorless mana, I wanted to minimize the odds of that being available in early hands.

In my play testing, I felt like it was Omnath, Locus of the Roil who wasn’t making much of an effort in the way this deck is built, so I made that cut for Purphoros, God of the Forge.

rkjunior, I made a few adjustments and I'm going to roll with 35 lands for now and see how that feels. That was the same amount I ran in Omnath, Locus of the Roil and never really had an issue with it.

Jensu08, the more I think about it. Wouldn’t you say Purphoros, God of the Forge would be a better fit than Tunneling Geopede? With the amount of creatures and tokens, especially that crazy Scute Swarm going off, seems like more devastating damage being dealt.

MindAblaze, I used to run Nissa, Vastwood Seer  Flip in my old Omnath, Locus of Rage build and removed it, because to me it felt slow for what it does. I did go ahead and add Wrenn and Six and removed Dualcaster Mage which eliminates the win con I had in here, but it doesn’t seem like it’s needed anyway. Shout out to rkjunior for that as well.

Jensu08, yeah, I’ve had turns where I have had insane amount of landfalls, especially when Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is out and I’m casting/flickering creatures. So I think Tunneling Geopede gets added at some point. It’ll be one of the next things I’ll probably make room for.

rkjunior, good because I added the two mana dorks myself. I don’t think I’ll miss Cultivate or Kodama's Reach if it means I have a better chance at casting my commander early.

Your board state is ridiculous! T6 and they don’t see it coming. I’m glad the deck is performing well. Especially since my intent was to just build to have fun with some landfall shenanigans. I thought the deck was going to end up being a downgrade from my Omnath, Locus of the Roil deck I took apart to build this monster, but I have definitely changed my mind on that.

rkjunior, wow, gg! How are you feeling about your inclusion of Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch? Does it feel more beneficial?

I have also considered Lithoform Engine or Strionic Resonator because I do love the trigger twice feature from Ancient Greenwarden and those will give another way to double a trigger.

unwucht, yeah, I’m pretty sure Finale of Revelation is going in at this point and maybe Pull from Tomorrow.

Adding some star players here for their feedback as well. Metachemist, unwucht, MalchiorDevenholm and let’s see if my good ol’ buddy SynergyBuild, will grace us with his presence.

rkjunior, great feedback, thanks! I’ve also experienced mulling for more than two lands as well, quite a bit actually. Things are pretty tight to cut as is, which is a reason I was asking for thoughts on adding Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch in place of Cultivate and Kodama's Reach to hopefully fix mulling if one of those are in hand with two lands and hope that we draw into at least one other land. Though two extra lands or even one more isn’t asking much so I’ll try to get those adjustments made. I’ll keep Flagstones of Trokair in mind for inclusion. I’m staying away from Strip Mine and Wasteland because having the colorless mana in opening hands is brutal. I’ve experienced this with Field of the Dead and that’s the only colorless I run.

The planeswalkers have been considered, I just had a hard time justifying inclusion at the time and only went with Nissa, Vital Force, but even she just got cut for a tutor.

I have also experienced an abundance of unused mana at times and because draw has been an issue, I was considering replacing stuff for x cost draw effects, such as, Pull from Tomorrow, Finale of Revelation, Sphinx's Revelation or even Hydroid Krasis.

As threatening as an eldrazi Titan would be and the flavor fits Zendikar well, I think I’ll pass on the idea for now.

Let’s continue to discuss this. We are making great progress at tuning this deck.

What is everyone’s thoughts on possibly cutting Cultivate and Kodama's Reach for Birds of Paradise and Noble Hierarch? Can make it potentially easier to cast Omnath, Locus of Creation on turn 3.

Cornelius_1216, the deck has even surprised me with its performance. This isn’t anything competitive by any means, because I wanted something that would be fun for me to pilot, but the deck can just blow up out of nowhere on turns 4-6. I’m glad you were able to find some stuff out of my brew to include to yours. Feel free to send me a link to your Omnath, Locus of Creation. I’d definitely like to check it out!

Metachemist, I am definitely on board with cutting Nissa, Vital Force and Echo of Eons for Enlightened Tutor and Worldly Tutor. Felidar Retreat I wanted to give a shot, but you do make valid points and I can make the cut for Fierce Guardianship. I think I might opt for Deflecting Swat over the other counter cards. Though I would need to cut something else over Wheel of Fortune. That card has disrupted my opponents hands and giving me a desperately needed full hand many times than none. I’m definitely open to more feedback from you.

unwucht, I always enjoy having clone cards around to abuse abilities. I do have Spark Double in consideration, since I can still use it to clone Omnath, Locus of Creation. For non-legendary cloning Phantasmal Image, Clever Impersonator or Riku of Two Reflections could be good adds if I decide to go that route.

At quick glance, here are some recommendations I have for you based off what I see. Manabond to go with Storm Cauldron. Slow your opponents down with Overburden, Mana Breach And Flooded Shoreline. Add Patron of the Moon to sneak bounced lands back into play, with that said Amulet of Vigor becomes very helpful. Parcelbeast + Scute Swarm goes off hard especially with Risen Reef in play. Can end up drawing your entire library so Thassa's Oracle as a win con. Oboro, Palace in the Clouds is very useful in here. Just some thoughts. Good luck with your brew!

Metachemist, I was concerned with as well with Roil Elemental, so I did opt to go with Risen Reef. Like we have discussed before, draw was an area of opportunity so that should hopefully help. Especially if we can get Parcelbeast + Scute Swarm online = draw galore.

unwucht, you are correct that does not work. Thanks for catching that! I got excited about Parcelbeast + Scute Swarm that I was thinking of other mutate abilities I’d like to Scutate and overlooked the legendary rule lol. Well cutting Illuna, Apex of Wishes now frees up a spot for either Roil Elemental, Risen Reef or Chulane, Teller of Tales.

Abzkaban, thanks for the +1! Curiosity is a very interesting suggestion. I guess I didn’t think about it drawing off all opponents that were dealt damage from the third landfall trigger. I like the thought of that. Great suggestion, thanks!

MalchiorDevenholm, that’s awesome that you took my deck for a test drive. I’m honored that you gave it a shot at performance. Sounds like you have experienced the deck in similar fashion as I have. In my test playing, I have also been able to pull off some ridiculous stunts with it. I do agree that the draw outlets are lacking and the deck could definitely use more draw. I find myself in need of having one online more times than none. It’s an area of opportunity I’d definitely like to address and get corrected. Other than that I have a blast playing around with this brew. Thanks for sharing your success story and for the feedback!

unwucht, thanks for checking out my brew! I’ve never been too much of a fan of Expedition Map with splash. I’d probably run Sylvan Scrying instead, if I needed the land tutor. I’ve always relied on Crop Rotation or Scapeshift to grab an important land. As for Chulane, Teller of Tales, I’m very close to possibly cutting something to make room for him. He seems to be highly recommended by the mass majority. Him and the lot of Leyline of Anticipation, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and Karametra, God of Harvests. Still a lot of thought and play testing to do before I make some adjustments though. Thanks for the suggestions and good luck with your brew! I’ll check it out.
