-4 Forest, +2 Snow-Covered Forest, +1 Snow-Covered Mountain, +1 Snow-Covered Swamp. Adding the snow lands gives a slightly better chance at turning on Field of the Dead sooner with no downside. Slightly changed basic land balance.
-1 Burgeoning, +1 Worldly Tutor. Just running the playtesting made two things clear: Burgeoning isn't going to pay off all that much, and the deck needs either Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator to make it into play to get the engine churning. Adding the tutor will ensure that will happen more reliably. The Gitrog Monster is also pretty important to find too, so I'm likely going to find spots for the Demonic Tutor anyway as well as a Chord of Calling.

I feel like maybe switching Forest for a Forest or even a Forest if you were feeling like throwing caution to the wind. In the end though I think the real finishing power is going to come from the combo of dropping a Forest on turn one and following it with a Forest on turn two.

'Tis always fun to play stompy-style destruction.
Alright. I have some complaints, so I'm filing them here.
Yavimaya Elder is an overplayed card. It is five-mana to draw a card and two basics. Unless you can reliably sacrifice it to other effects, it isn't worth it. Perhaps just a Mystical Confluence? Impulse is one I much enjoy, and Once Upon a Time is within ilka green deck I own.
There's your suggestions.

Ah, I have a few more notes to the changes.
I've playtested the deck a couple of times, and it feels much better than afore. Nice!
So, Field of the Dead is best used with fewer basics, as that provides fewer shared names across the land-base and thus making its zombies spawn reliably. Brains ahoy.
Now for another field as subject. Field of Ruin is helpful, for removing lands is necessary in any deck, but it ramps all players, including the ones not involved in this interaction. Strip Mine is expensive, as with Wasteland, but a Tectonic Edge would be better.
The last thing I would recommend is some more card draw. The deck ramps really well and Radha is a fine outlet for said mana, but a few cantrips or draw engines would be great. You can probably cut a land or two, but I wouldn't go much further than that. Outpost Siege is a reliable one.

VexenX, as you have recently inspired me to find room for more draw in Om_Rath, I have done some testing and I'd like to recommend some ambitious solutions. First, I'd like to touch on some cards that I think have been holding Om_Rath back.
1) Doubling Season. Lets power level check this card by comparing it to another 5 CMC card Where Ancients Tread. I believe both cards serve a similar purpose: Do more damage. If our focus is burn: Doubling Season does an extra 3 damage plus a sac outlet effect per land given that you have a sac outlet vs Where Ancients Tread's 5 extra damage per land, no outlet required. The biggest problem I'd like to point out is that Doubling Season demands that you also have a sac outlet in play to be interactive with other players on the same level as Where Ancients Tread. Although we will usually come across one of our four sac outlets in a given game and we'll always have the creatures to burn players given a board wipe, Doubling Season is very often a slow card. Not to mention that it always deals less total damage than Where Ancients Tread. Lets look at the other upsides of Doubling Season though. What it has that Where Ancients Tread doesn't is the ability to create more creatures. Lets take a look at the cards that benefit from more creatures in the deck: Gaea's Cradle, Shamanic Revelation, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Craterhoof Behemoth, keep in mind Akroma's Memorial was recently slotted out, and more burn effects like Where Ancients Tread. None of these cards are at all dependent on Doubling Season effects, they appear to only be assisted. I could not say the same about Where Ancients Tread - a card that Om_Rath is often dependent on to close games. In summary, although Doubling Season and Parallel Lives are strong synergistic cards, I view them to be awkward in many hand states and cut-able if the price is right.
2) Genesis Wave. I gotta say this card looks much more exciting on paper than when you actually play it. And that's IF you play it. First off, Genesis Wave is usually the last card in your hand that you play when you're out of gas. This isn't a bad idea if you need a mana sink and if you have good odds on hitting some bombs. I won't knock the mana sink call, but what exactly are we trying to hit in this deck? In theory, we're playing a deck that has its main bomb for a commander, so most of what you can expect to hit is lands and cheap spells. And in that respect, isn't Genesis Wave often a high CMC ramp spell? The kind of spells we've been cutting from the deck for a while now for good reason? I think it's cuttable.
3) Command Beacon. I get that it's useful to have a late game land, but I think Command Beacon is TOO late game. Every time you sacrifice a land, you sacrifice tempo. Tempo you could use to drop more lands for a real CMD cast or draw spells into real protection for Omnath, Locus of Rage. For ex. just one tutor draw can grab Sylvan Safekeeper and a lot of the time that works better than any Command Beacon loop will. If you're looking for a late game land, I think you want to be in Field of the Dead. I've been absolutely loving it, and it even fills the role of a tiny Doubling Season, keeping Gaea's Cradle, Shamanic Revelation, and Purphoros, God of the Forge perfectly happy even after Doubling Season's removal. This also means splitting your mountains and forests in half to make room for equivalent snow lands.
Off this tangent, I would propose the following changes with a theme of increasing draw, decreasing CMC, and not compromising win cons:
And lastly, with the addition of more reliable draw I think Burgeoning deserves to be revisited. You will have more hand states with more lands than you can play in a turn or even two. If you were to make the swaps I listed, I would recommend slotting in Burgeoning over Mina and Denn, Wildborn. I think this is more where we wanted Om_Rath to be in the first place. I believe you only slotted out Burgeoning because the deck didn't have enough consistent card draw. We know Mina and Denn, Wildborn fills a flex spot because it's an expensive Exploration and if all Exploration effects were integral to the success of the deck, we would also be in Wayward Swordtooth. If we're in Burgeoning, I think we should also slot in Ghost Town again. In summary:
I hope you take everything I say with a grain of salt, and at the end of the day I just love chatting about Om_Rath!!!
