Have you considered Spellseeker? Also I think Rule of Law works better than Deafening Silence as it stops Food Chain combos and Thassa's Oracle combos, especially when we don't benefit that much from casting a creature and a non creature spell in the same turn.

I've personly made a list, which is very... different from yours. However, I wonder if you left cards out like,
- Gaea's Cradle: obviously stronger than a few of your chosen lands.
- Food Chain: Comboes with your land of choice: Command Beacon for infinite mana and tokens.
In case your playgroup doesn't allow proxies, I could understand Gaea's Cradle, but Command Beacon is 20 bucks? Maybe you know better than I, but I'm not sure that your deck is cEDH level of power. Which is what I read when I saw 'compettetive' in the title?
Am I mistaken? Or does your deck have any "secret" tech' I don't know about.
Now... DON'T take this up as a 'diss' of your deck. I am simply trying to understand and learn if possible.

You can always run Food Chain and Squee, the Immortal to generate infinite mana of WURG. Then you cast Omnath, draw card, exile to food chain. Repeat drawing your deck till you hit a win con. Like Lab Man or Finale of Devastation etc.

Always good to hear from ya. So how valuable is Engineered Explosives? Well, it's more of a quirky mass removal option that I enjoy keeping on hand for political reasons. If someone is playing a token heavy commander like Prossh, Skyraider of Kher or is running Food Chain I enjoy just having an easy removal option that also makes an opponent think twice. It by no means is an essential card in the deck, but I've found it useful, especially for removing permanents with hexproof/shroud.

My Omnath, Top of the Elemental Food Chain deck is a cEDH deck, which means that it's not tribal. The point of the deck is to generate infinite mana using Food Chain and creatures that you can cast from exile: Misthollow Griffin, Squee, the Immortal, and Eternal Scourge. With infinite mana, then you cast Omnath, Locus of the Roil infinite times, pinging everyone down one point at a time.
I have a casual Omnath list here: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/omnath-locus-of-land-creatures/ This brew is focused around animating and attacking with elemental lands.

I’m sure it could be used somewhere. I was just thinking about trying a Food Chain deck and seeing if Ballista worked as a finisher for that. Ballista makes for a great infinite mana finisher. But I guess there’s lots of decent finishers with infinite mana Blue Sun's Zenith is one I want to build around. And it’s lesser version Stroke of Genius.

Sadly, no, thantis doesn't have a currently applicable way to come out early enough or gain any value when it does in cEDH. On it's surface it isn't something that is a great hate piece for the format, nor does it gain card advantage, nor combo potential. It can't even be used as an outlet for other combos such as Food Chain, reanimator lines like Worldgorger Dragon, or even a Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combo.
Sadly it just isn't on par with the cards that are being run. If you do make it cEDH, I'd recommend making the deck not use the commander at all, as in most games building around it would be worse than building a combo shell in the colors.
If that's what you want, I'd recommend an Ad Nauseam storm combo, something that wins fast, and using Gruul countermagic to back it up against interaction.

question... as far as Food Chain decks go, is The First Sliver way more powerful than Cazur, Ruthless Stalker Flip? Or are they pretty parallel because the mana base is a little easier with the Cazur, Ruthless Stalker Flip style deck. trying to decide which one to focus on. I have FC Prossh. I did FC Niv. Now trying to decide which version of FC is best.
