Guerte on [[Primer v3.6]] - OM_RATH!!! (2021 Update!!!)
1 week ago
VexenX: I’m very happy to see an update from you. I no longer maintain my list here (I do on Moxfield), but I still check here from time to time and compare our lists, as they used to be pretty familiar.
Omrath is still my best deck and the one I maintain and am currently known for in my group, and the LGS two hours away from me. I’ve taken it there for two tournaments, the first I won and went undefeated (and took out all players myself in each pod) and the second I did win first round, but lost out in the remaining rounds to a Captain Sisay deck. I also took it to MagicCon Minneapolis and had a very good showing.
As far as your current decklist goes, here are some of my observations. First up will be the additions:
Conduit of Worlds: At its core, Conduit is just Crucible, which is a strong enough card in our deck. But it allows us to recast our super strong permanents, like Doubling Season and Terror of the Peaks. Hell, even lets you keep recasting Omnath for 7. The one spell a turn isn’t a big deal, especially if we can rebuild and get super good value out of whatever we cast. Redundancy isn’t a bad thing, but I feel like this is a replacement for Crucible, not an addition to.
Burgeoning: I also picked up the pretty copy and through it and Ghost Town back in the deck (not only for nostalgic purposes, but also for a House Rules EDH tournament). Unfortunately, I personally don’t think it’s good enough anymore. It was only really good enough with Ghost Town to take advantage of making tokens during everyone’s turn. But having to rely on lands in hand to take advantage of it makes this a dead card most of the time, at least in my trials.
City on Fire: While it is nice to have a damage tripler, especially one in which you can Convoke out, I’m not sure it’s really necessary. I dropped Emancipation from my list and haven’t missed it at all. It feels just win-more to me.
Gruul Turf: Absolutely yes! This is an awesome card to have, and haven’t regretted adding it in. However, I feel like you are missing out on taking full advantage of it my not having Kodama of the East Tree in your list. Having those two and a token generator like Omnath, Field of the Dead, and Scute Swarm (which is also not in your list and an absolute powerhouse in the deck) you can generate infinite tokens, which gets even better with Terror of the Peaks and Warstorm Surge.
Now, onto the subtractions:
Dire-Strain Rampage: I’m not entirely too sure on this cut. It’s ramp and removal in one spell, but it also has Flashback. Ramp twice, remove things twice, or mix it up. It’s a pretty versatile card.
Rishkar's Expertise: I don’t think I can agree with this cut at all. The deck needs card draw, and this is one of the most powerful for the deck. Most of the time it’s a draw 5 and a free spell. Hell I’ve gotten a free Terror off of it and that meant game.
Finally, onto the cards I think you should be playing:
Tribute to the World Tree: I know you said you were looking for a cut above, but I can’t stress enough how you definitely need to. It’s an awesome card draw enchantment, and also buffs your smaller creatures, even tokens generated from Field and Scute.
Scute Swarm: I like to consider this the secret commander of the deck. It gets out of hand so fast. I’ve gotten a turn 4 win off the back of this little critter.
Kodama of the East Tree: Value engine. Not only does it enable you to make infinite tokens with Turf, just the value you get for dumping extra lands or other free permanents is insane.
Jeweled Lotus: I know it’s an expensive card, and a one-time use, but getting Omnath out earlier is super strong.
Dockside Extortionist/Jeska's Will: Much like Lotus, these guys help get Omnath out super early, but Will also helps ramp into other spells and draws you cards if he’s already out.
Earthcraft: This is probably one of the most powerful cards the deck can have. With as many tokens as we can potentially make, this card can ramp us like no other. I was hesitant to run it at first, but when I finally did, I regretted not doing it sooner.
That’s my two cents. I know it’s a lot to read, but hopefully it’ll give you something to think about!
DraconicDestruction on Omnath, Locus of Landfall

you could run Kodama of the East Tree for its combo potential (it, Gruul Turf, and Omnath, Locus of Rage lead to infinite 5/5 elementals by playing gruul turf and then returning it to your hand, causing an elemental to get created and then use kodama's ability to get down gruul turf again, causing another 5/5 to be created and so on)

Since Avenger of Zendikar counts as a (Forest) land when Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is in play, it can be returned with Gruul Turf.
The only zone that has permanents "you control" is the battlefield. Compare Ashaya's wording to Arcane Adaptation, for example.

(This is a landfall deck)
Example- Ashaya, Soul of the Wild is on the battlefield, I then tap mana and cast Avenger of Zendikar. This is done before I play any lands this turn. In my hand I have Gruul Turf and play it. Am I able bounce Avenger of Zendikar to my hand and recast given I have enough mana to do so?
I also have another question regarding Ashaya, Soul of the Wild. Do creatures in my graveyard count as land creatures or is that outside of my control? Really what zones count as "my control."
DraconicDestruction on Rumbling Rumbling Omnath's Coming

One card that could perform well is Kodama of the East Tree, because it, Omnath, Locus of Rage, and Guildless Commons/Gruul Turf enable infinite landfall triggers (when you play gruul turf return it to your hand, because kodama will allow you to put it onto the battlefield because of the 5/5 elemental entering due to omnath, enabling infinite landfall triggers and elementals. (all of that aside, it allows you to get down 2 lands per turn instead of 1)

Realms Uncharted and Scapeshift are worth considering. Also, bounce lands might be fun (Gruul Turf, Boros Garrison, Selesnya Sanctuary). I'd replace the multiplayer lands with these.
Some more cards to consider:

I love Gruul Turf in mine. Play it, return it to hand. Play it again. At least one land drop every turn.

I know you’re running on a budget, but where you’re spending the budget confuses me. Why spend the budget on Fabled Passage and not Werewolf Pack Leader which costs similar, but gonna do much more for the deck.
Speaking of the land base, I’d replace Gruul Guildgate for Kazandu Refuge, and why, why, why?!? Would you run Gateway Plaza in a non gate deck, especially just a two color one. Kessig wolfrun will do you a lot of favors and has recently become budget again. Gruul Turf and Cinder Glade are also great budget lands, especially with all your basics.
Immerwolf can protect your werewolves from transforming and Child of the Pack Flip both serves to boost your team and a mana sink. Mayor of Avabruck Flip boosts your team whatever side is up and Mondronen Shaman Flip can dissuade your opponents from casting spells to transform your werewolves.
Removal and ramp, you totally need it! Hull Breach is a great card. Broken Bond is a pet card of mine, cheap removal that can also ramp you. Chandra's Ignition can serve as a board wipe for you. Rampant Growth and Migration Path can help ramp you too.
Hope this helped, a little work and you can totally get this to a playable deck!!! Have fun and keep budget…
