jaymc1130, If you badly need exile beyond Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile you can run Reality Shift, Dire Tactics, Angelic Ascension, Blitz of the Thunder-Raptor, Celestial Purge, Scorching Dragonfire, and Scorchmark.
While it doesn’t exile Mystic Subdual is also worth mentioning.

Determining just how broken a card is depends on how well it can be interacted with. Omanth is very easy to interact with. However I do believe Genesis Ultimatum or Escape to the Wilds should have seen the axe
The other problem is that so many players are playing it just to win.
I think the bigger problem is that it forces a player to interact with it so early which throws off an opponents game plan, that and players don't want to put more removal in their decks.

That's a whole lot of cards that can deal with Omnath decks. So its not so broken that it can't be dealt with. Does it mean you have to add more than 4 removal cards or change colors? You might have to. Does it mean you might have to change some strategy? Possibly.
Mono White has at least 12 solid answer cards for Omnath and you can still play aggro. Blue has counterspells though you might have to pair it with another color. Red has a few options as well, and the only color that is lacking is if you play mono green. With that many cards you really can't say it's so broken it's unbeatable. You have to play around it. You have to anticipate the strategy. These cards can easily be maindecked, and if youre a player that goes 38 creatures and only 22 lands then I'm sorry for you.
But I wholey disagree with the term Broken. Ive often seen Omnath players quit when they lose Cobra and Omnath. I've also seen a lot of them pass the turn and pass several turns. If you cannot answer it, its out of lack of trying, preparedness, or just a bad game which happens. Also, its not Omnath doing broken things. Omnath only produces the mana to do really really good things. IF Wizards bans Escape and Ultimatum players will have to switch to Lithoforming and while it won't kill the deck it will slow it down and I think that's a more fair approach. But yeah... as above, you don't have to limit yourself to just what's being played. Think outside the box.

DragonSliver9001, that seems to be a rather mean-spirited thing to say, in my mind; I would like to think that I have some great ideas for this game.

If you seek things to cut, I have a few that are worth considering for oblivion.
Angelic Ascension is an instant, deals withal creatures, yet leaves them with a large creature. Given the fact that you exiled their friend, the angel will probably be attacking you.
By a few, I mean one. That is the only card I would even consider removing. Good luck!

Haven't the standard bannings been the best thing to happen this year?
Jokes aside, with Teferi, Time Raveler gone, you don't have to worry about casting Transmogrifying into a Terror of the Peaks just to have it bounced by Teferi, Time Raveler. In historic, people are doing a similar thing, just with Craterhoof Behemoth. The only problem with this deck is that when Reptilian Reflection and Riddleform become creatures, it doesn't count as them entering the battlefield. (They turn into creatures, not leave the battlefield and re-enter.) I would put in some Castle Ardenvales for token production, and take out Reptilian Reflection and Riddleform for 3x Satyr's Cunning and 3x Angelic Ascension.
+1 from me.

I wasn't especially hot on Angelic Ascension but have seen some hype for it and was keen to get your inputs. Thank you again.

Openil - if you need more removal that can hit planeswalkers, Generous Gift, Anguished Unmaking, and Chaos Warp are all better than Angelic Ascension. Beyond that you could try Despark which hits a lot of planeswalkers that get run in EDH. Keep in mind Boros Charm can also hit planeswalkers for 4, and we can also push thru some damage with evasive creatures directed at planeswalkers.
