Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature you control. It gains reach, trample, hexproof and indestructible until end of turn. (It can't be the target of spells or abilities your opponents control. Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it.)

Legion Loyalist seems like a solid option to give our creatures trample more reliably. Kenrith, the Returned King and Garruk's Uprising also do this, and Gaea's Gift can also work if Odric is out. That's not many options, so adding another seems like a good choice. Kenrith is legendary and can thus be tutored for with Buttercup, so at least we can get him every game if we decide to, but we'll only have so many tutor opportunities before the game ends, so it would be great to draw trample enablers naturally. I'm not sure what I would cut if I were to add Legion Loyalist, but I'll add him to the maybeboard for now.

Hi there, Omnath was my first deck that I seriously optimized so I think I can give some good insight.
There are some card choices I love, some I question, and some that make me want to flip over a table.
First, I love your inclusion of mana doublers. Seedborn Muse is by far the most powerful card in the deck followed closely by Nyxbloom Ancient and it seems like you know that. You have a good density of these big mana generation cards already, so just be careful to not go overboard by adding too many of these effects.
As previous commenters suggested, your deck lacks a focused strategy on what you want to do with all that mana. Many builds focus on getting Omnath big and winning with commander damage, but I think using the mana on other resources as a way to win is better. My advice is to question how each individual card interacts with your specific game plan, and if it doesn't advance your plan in the way you desire, then consider replacing it with something that does.
Your card draw choices are questionable. Eye of Vecna for example is very below rate, and we can do much better than just drawing one card a turn. Omnath is a VERY explosive commander, and its card draw should reflect that. Typically, I can expect to draw 10+ cards with a single spell, which usually gives me the gas to win on the next turn. Tutors are also incredibly powerful in Omnath builds because they allow you to more reliably find Seedborn Muse et.al.
If your card draw and tutor package are good enough, you can also cut down on big bombs. This helps consistency by increasing the odds of ramp and draw showing up in your starting hand, which of course is what you want to see. After all, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth does nothing if you can't get to 10 mana.
One other thing I learned when playtesting Omnath is how important protection spells are. In most games, Omnath is the first legitimitely threatening thing to hit the board and is the first thing opponents want to spend removal on. I like running instant speed, one time protection spells like Gaea's Gift so I can get removal out of opponents hands, but cards like Steely Resolve or Lightning Greaves also does the trick. And giving Omnath flash via Vedalken Orrery, Yeva, Nature's Herald, etc. is a more resilient way to make sure your mana pool never empties.
Also, Solidarity of Heroes doesn't work like you think. Omnath give itself +1/+1, but does not use +1/+1 counters.
Be sure to check out my build to see the specific card choices I used. It's not perfect, but the deck has come a long way from when I first built it. I hope some of the lessons I learned here help your deck out too. Happy brewing!

Instead of the mana doublers, i would add something like Bear Umbra, untaps your land if you swing with your commander, plus totem armor. Get some protection aswell, Lightning Greaves Yeva, Nature's Herald (just cast commander straight back when he gets destroyed, keep it in your hand). maybe a few spells like Tamiyo's Safekeeping, Tyvar's Stand, Gaea's Gift, Momentous Fall, Shared Summons, Wrap in Vigor some other creatures i didnt think of before: Oracle of Mul Daya, Silverback Elder, Apex Devastator, Cultivator Colossus, Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Cankerbloom, Topiary Stomper, Regal Force
For cutting cards, i would just cut cards that arent creatures or synergize with creatures, or dont do alot most of the time. something like Exponential Growth is gonna be a dead card in your hand most of the times.
Also dont understand most artifacts in your deck. Diviner's Wand for example, 3 mana to cast, 3 to equip, 4 to draw 1 card, 10 mana to draw your first card, and 4 mana for each card after that doesnt seem worth it at all. Id also cut 1x Mirage Mirror, Staff of Compleation, Helm of the Host, Lithoform Engine, Book of Rass
And i would add 4-5 lands. playing a land per turn is stronger then playing an arcane signet or sol ring and then miss a land drop. (id cut arcane signet and sol ring aswell, they are bad draws past t4)

Including your Commander, a deck requires 100 cards. You're at 99. All the recommendations DrukenReaps and I made still stand. I'm also adding to my list of Recommendations Shameless Charlatan*, Gaea's Gift, Halimar Depths and Mystic Sanctuary.
If I think of anything else I'll be sure to post here.
*In the event you want to make things interesting and switch in Jaheira as your commander.

Thran Vigil I was hoping to make a deck loosely based around this card.
