Victim of Night is a pet favorite of mine as far as spot removal. It hits almost everything that Doomblade does, and quite a few creatures that Doomblade can't.

TheRedGoat I played almost no Shadows over Innistrad limited, but Nephalia Moondrakes looks like a Limited bomb to me. Sure, it sucks in Constructed, but that isn't why the card was printed. Compare it to the "Soul of" creatures in M15, and Moondrakes' effect is appropriately costed ( is apparently worth a 3/3).

Also, I suspect that the ETB originally gave all creatures you control flying, but was nerfed during development because it was too powerful in Limited.

berryjon With Wastes, I was basing that info on some stuff I heard during spoiler season, so that might be incorrect.

As far as the two Eldrazi, MaRo mentioned it in one of his podcasts (Drive to Work 135).

It's worth noting that some commons are more common than others. If I recall correctly, Ulamog's Crusher, Hand of Emrakul, and Wastes were all printed at a higher frequency than normal commons. For two of these cards, they wanted to increase the ASFAN of the whole "giant tentacle monster" theme, and the third was to make it easier for players to acquire 10-20 copies.

Using Murk Strider to break the association between Oblivion Ring and the exiled card is kinda sketchy, since the card ends up in your opponent's graveyard. Against some decks, that's about as effective as returning the card to the owner's hand. A better way to permanently exile cards is to use two Oblivion Ring-esque effects (ex. Parallax Wave/Parallax Tide + Leonin Relic-Warder + Brago trigger = 5 exiled creatures/lands per trigger).

Balustrade Spy and Undercity Informer can potentially mill quite a few cards.

You have too many uncommons.

Attrition and Mind Slash turn your tokens into useful effects.

Aura Shards does an amazing job at getting rid of enchantments and artifacts.

Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Martyr's Bond, and Butcher of Malakir turn Ghave into ": Each opponent sacrifices a creature".

Beastmaster Ascension is disgusting with tokens. Collective Blessing provides a similar boost (without the trample).

"Iconic" actually has a specific meaning in Wizards R&D. Iconic creature types are the types that represent the high end of each color. They tend to appear at rare or mythic in almost every set, as long as the world supports that creature type. Angels and dragons have been the iconic creature types for White and Red (respectively) for a fairly long time. Black has had demons (though there's a bit of a history), though vampires occasionally show up in this area. Green eventually settled on hydras (it was Beast for a while). R&D had a lot of problems with Blue, but they're currently using sphinx as the Blue iconic creature type.

Seal of Strength and Vines of Vastwood are both reasonable pump spells.

Your noble is included in your list of 60 cards, so you can shave a card from your mainboard.

For testing purposes on Tappedout, you generally want to have your Noble in mainboard, since you'd need to swap cards in and restart the game when in playtest mode if you want to access your Noble.

Holy Day, Dawn Charm, and Ethereal Haze are all decent fog effects. There's a bunch more if you branch into green (which would also give you access to better ramp), but I'm not sure you need to bother with that.

Eidolon of Rhetoric as your uncommon is nasty, and gives you a minimum of a 40% winrate against certain decks (with the number being much higher if you're willing to mulligan aggressively).

Survive the Night, Shelter, and Expose Evil are all subpar.

I second the suggestion that you need more lands. Mana never stops being useful for Omnath, so flooding out is rarely bad.

Elvish Mystic, Arbor Elf, Birds of Paradise, Utopia Sprawl, Wild Growth, and Fyndhorn Elves are 1-drops that ramp you into T2 Omnath.
