Hey, very good upgrade of the precon while still keeping budget. Nice Doubling Season and Xenagos, God of Revels is some spicy tech with Obuun :)

My advice is consider cutting a few land ramp spells and adding some repeatable draw sources such as Valakut Exploration, Garruk's Uprising and Tireless Tracker. Exploration uses landfall to play cards from the top of your library including lands. It can also be graveyard fuel for Trove Warden, Sun Titan and Emeria Shepherd. Uprising is an amazing budget card in Commander with creature strategies especially with Omnath, Locus of Rage and Rampaging Baloths since it triggers when a token is created. Tracker, Mystery Booster version, creates clues with landfall and clues can sac to draw.

Crop Rotation can tutor for any land which is nice with Bounce lands, Fetch lands, Kessig Wolf Run and Gavony Township. Emeria Angel and Scute Swarm are build your own army with landfall which is very good with Doubling Season, Felidar Retreat, Township and Beastmaster Ascension.

Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista are some land upgrades for the manabase because they have good interaction with lots of basic lands and they're two different land types. Farseek, Nature's Lore, Grasslands, Mountain Valley can search for one of these dual lands. Krosan Verge and Skyshroud Claim can get both of them. These Battle lands are $2 or less each at TCGPlayer. Exotic Orchard is a budget Rainbow land that's quite good in multiplayer Commander.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

You're missing some obvious optimization includes in your mana base. Notably, you have 6 more fetchlands to include, 3 green and 3 blue. 36 is also definitely too many lands for a competitive build, and could easily go down to 32 or even 31, freeing up slots for more spells.

You're missing some choice counterspell includes. Flusterstorm is a must, so is Mana Drain. Even the basic Counterspell could get a slot.

There are also a handful of staple mana rocks missing that should be slotted. Mana Crypt and Chrome Mox come to mind, so does Mox Diamond. I'd also recommend Priest of Titania as a must for this deck.

The biggest problem with this build as opposed to the Magical Hack build is that you're forced to run a bunch of sub-optimal cards that don't advance your game plan simply to get Momir Vig triggers. Almost every single Simic creature you run is only slotted to get triggers, and without Momir are dead draws on their own. Now compare to the Magical Hack build. After hacking, the mana dork suite that powers out Momir has now also gained value by being able to start the hack chain and serves a double purpose, freeing up other slots for interaction and problem solvers for cards that shut down the Momir dork chain. The creatures being green only also means that there is blue mana available to throw counterspells as needed to protect the dork chain.

Another problem I can easily identify with this build is having to pass the turn in the middle of the chain. You're giving opponents an opportunity to remove your commander or necessary combo pieces for winning. You're also letting them untap their mana to hold counterspells to stop your game plan. I also think that the combos you are choosing to slow are rather low value too, Palinchron has been abandoned in competitive builds for quite a long time due to needing lots of lands on the field and the high casting cost, as well as opportunity cost from slotting and potentially drawing it during the game. Deadeye Navigator is another card with all those same complaints. The Cloud of Faeries combo requires having one of two specific lands, so I'd recommend a slot for Crop Rotation if you want to rely on that combo at all.

Hey, nice version.

Consider cutting a few of the least good creatures/cards for some tutors within the budget to get the better cards?

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, idk if this deck is still active but I thought I would recommend a few cards. First of all Monstrous Onslaught is a must for all Omnath decks as it will most of the time wipe just about all of your opponents creatures for only 5 mana. Elephant Grass can be good. Elvish Herder is a great trample giver. Three Visits is better than rampant growth if you have the money. Nissa, Who Shakes the World is basically vernal bloom 2.0. I think Doubling Cube needs back in and Helix Pinnacle wouldn't hurt either. Lifecrafter's Bestiary is great card draw. Sword of Feast and Famine untaps your lands and gives you protection from a cast down or walk the plank. Crop Rotation is great with rogues passage and the cradle. Plow Under absolutely kills someone usually. Calming Verse is a one sided enchantment wipe, and Sylvan Tutor is wordly tutors weak cousin.

Nice deck!

Constant Mists with a Crucible of Worlds + Life from the Loam package is fairly thematic and effective. A Crop Rotation to snag up your Glacial Chasm will do wonders when facing down those pesky aggro decks. I'm also a big fan of Wilderness Reclamation and Quest for Renewal (assuming you can add in more dorks) Noble Hierarch, Elvish Mystic, Llanowar Elves, Priest of Titania, Fyndhorn Elves and Avacyn's Pilgrim typically get the ball rolling consistently :)

multimedia on HELP with budget Ur dragon

Hey, for less than $150 you've done well with your version. You clearly know how to build a Commander deck with a low budget.

Cards that are $3 or less each to consider adding:

Scion of the Ur-Dragon is a very good Dragon as a repeatable Dragon tutor and it combos with Teneb, the Harvester + Bladewing the Risen to reanimate the Dragons you tutor for. Consider cutting some of the least good Dragons for a few creature tutors that can search for the better Dragons?

Temur Ascendancy does a lot for a three drop, haste for all creatures you control and repeatable draw when most Dragons ETB including Dragon tokens with 4 or more power. These land suggestions would add five more lands that can ETB untapped meaning they could replace five lands that always ETB tapped. Cascading Cataracts is helpful with Jodah/Fist letting you for five mana of any colors plus tapping Cataracts to cast any card.

Cards to consider cutting:

Even on a budget the Vivid lands are not good unless you have proliferate to put more counters on them and I don't recommend adding proliferate just for the Vivids.

Good luck with your deck.

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