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.

I almost feel like Protean Thaumaturge is unnecessary here. You've got 9 enchantments to help trigger it to copy the crab but you have no form of protection for anything on your board. You might want to consider dropping him and just focusing on the landfall and card draw to mill your opponent. This would give you space for some counter spells to help protect what you have on board or to keep any big threats from your opponent off the board. Consider Didn't Say Please or even Glacial Grasp to help control the board

Here's a few suggestions from a mill specialist,
add 1 Didn't Say Please - i don't see why you wouldn't run a playset of milling counterspells in a mill deck
remove the Kiora Bests the Sea God - this makes room for an additional counterspell
I hope you can try out these changes and decide if you will keep some or all of them :3

Didn't Say Please -> Mystical Dispute Maybe cut Teferi's Tutelage and focus on a more tempo style deck with the 7/7 loch creature, 24 land and the 1 drop mill 4 and 1/2 mill + scryers, cut necromentia as well?
