multimedia on Omnath Elemental Tribal

Hey, for a first deck this is well done on a budget. Nice Foothills Expedition :)

Ask yourself do you need Elemental tribal with Omnath? My advice will hopefully give you ideas of how you can make upgrades with Omnath by getting away from the tribal theme. Omnath by himself is an Elemental engine, creating Elementals with landfall. Focus more on ramp and landfall for Omnath as your main source of Elementals, not other Elemental creatures.

The cards you cast before Omnath should help you to cast Omnath which will do a lot more for gameplay then casting some Elementals before him. Still play some Elementals such as Ashaya, Soul of the Wild and Bane of Progress , but play these because they're good cards not because they're Elementals. Elementals such as Creeping Trailblazer and Lavakin Brawler aren't good enough even with Elemental synergy.

Cards in the early game you want to cast are ramp.

Lotus Cobra , Tireless Provisioner and Stone-Seeder Hierophant are important budget cards because of landfall which makes them combo with Perilous Forays + Omnath to repeatedly pay for the sac activation of Forays.


Ramunap Excavator , Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Moraug, Fury of Akoum are good budget support cards who are not Elementals; they're support comes from interactions with lands. Excavator lets you play lands from your graveyard which is excellent with Fetch lands for landfall: Foothills, Passage, Wilds, Expanse, Myriad Landscape , Naya Panorama , Jund Panorama . Excavator makes cards that make you sac a land when you cast them better since you can then play the land you saced from your graveyard. Excavator is also good with Valakut Exploration which is landfall for card advantage or damage to all opponents.

Wildborn lets you play another land on your turn and it also has an ability to bounce a land you control to give Omnath trample. Moraug can be a win condition with landfall giving you extra combat steps to attack with Omnath and 5/5 Elementals. You get an extra combat step after a main phase for each landfall trigger.

If you're interested in these suggestions then I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

mwalkner Good idea! I first had Creeping Trailblazer in the deck but cut it for Voice of Resurgence because of the amount of removal and interactive play in my playgroup, but it would fit nicely. Also Omnath, Locus of the Roil was once in the mix, but I noticed that the Landfall ability wouldn't have the impact I wished for, so I'll built another deck around this theme once Return to Zendikar drops. Phantasmal Image would also fit and streamline the deck, but I figured more diversity to be a little more fun :) Aether Vial is a beautiful busted card anyways, but -like you mentioned- way too expensive for my budget... Thank you for all the good input!

Creeping Trailblazer and Phantasmal Image are both really solid option, I play this deck in legacy and I love the shell a ton, if its ever in your budget Aether Vial and a one of Omnath, Locus of the Roil are great

This is a super cool deck. I like it. Now. What if you used Risen Reef and Amulet of Vigor to play your entire deck?? note: if this strat isn't your style then this may just be me theorycrafting about my own upcoming elemental deck!

To that end, you could run 4 Brighthearth Banneret to fuel the engine, and for finishers have a bunch of those Ball Lightning sorts of elementals and Embodiment of Fury and such, though Creeping Trailblazer may be enough to pump the team and win, Grove Rumbler is probably safer- it has trample... maybe we play Song of Creation with this???

Anyway, for this deck, Living Twister and Multani, Yavimaya's Avatar both want a lot of lands to be on the field so they may be relevant?

This looks like a lot of fun to play, but it may need a bit of tweaking.

Creeping Trailblazer does really well with Chandra, Acolyte of Flame and such because you're getting so much extra power. Here it might honestly just slow you down. Growth Spiral is a good early game card to assist your plan: ramping into the big Elementals.

Definitely go up to 4x Risen Reef . While doing so, you really take advantage of your Elemental tribal. If you do this, little Chandra becomes arguably better ramp than Chandra, Novice Pyromancer , although I can see her dual utility in ramp and power boosting.

As strong a card as Nissa, Who Shakes the World is, you've probably ramped enough if you've reached 5 mana already, as the cavaliers, Omnath and Yarok all cost 5 or less. Healer of the Glade is not a very exciting card but it helps against aggro and pairs well with Risen Reef. Otherwise something to copy your important creatures like Spark Double can make games more interesting and is IMO a very fun card to play.

My final suggestion is to take advantage of the ramp you have, and throw in maybe 2 bombs like Agent of Treachery or Drakuseth, Maw of Flames . These don't go with your theme as the Cavaliers are your "Four Horsemen", but it's an option. I'd recommend at least putting in a few removal spells in case the opponent resolves a real problem (especially a Planeswalker... Assassin's Trophy is a flexible one).

These are just things to consider. I like the look of this and would happily try out something similar on Arena.

Roxas255 I would probably take out Thicket Crasher for Thunderkin Awakener . Cut down one Omnath, Locus of Rage . Take out Beastmaster Ascension for more land. Creeping Trailblazer works great with Chandra, Acolyte of Flame . Hope this helps you out.
