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!

I haven't changed anything no. The combos in this deck are very long mostly so its hard to consistently get them. In a competitive environment its likely you will have to mull to 6 or even 5 often in hopes of getting "X" Combo piece as well as mana and "Y" Tutor, or even multiple combo pieces. Krark-Clan Ironworks and Sly Requisitioner are going to be good starts as well as seeing Jeweled Lotus in your hand. I enjoy Imotekh But if youre going for something more competetive there are definitely better mono black options.
You can Check out Sheoldrude which is pretty competitive and also only a hop skip and a jump away from a highly competitive Krrik deck.
Mortlocke on The Reserved List is a …
2 months ago
I've lurked on Reddit for years now, and from time to time I see threads and/or opinions such as "The Reserved List is bad - it's an outdated concept." "They need to reprint the ABUR dual lands - the reason why they're so expensive is because of the gatekeepers and evil investors".
The worst opinion, and the one I find absolutely beyond irksome is the "The majority of magic the gathering players support the removal of the Reserved List" this is a prime example of the invisible/silent majority fallacy when someone wants to make their personal opinion (or poorly thought out argument) seem more "valid" they say "well a group of unnamed and invisible people support my opinion, so that makes it true". For the sake of argument lets assume that 5 million of the supposed 7 million magic the gathering players worldwide came together and signed a petition officially declaring this demand - where the hell is it? Where is this official public stance? Did I miss something? Or is this just the commiserating of a few online denizens that live in the illusion of a premium reprint product containing some of the most powerful cards ever made in Magic: The Gathering's history be made some how...affordable? I feel like these individuals have their heads in the sand - or don't know how WotC works or private corporations for that matter.
I think the Reserved List is good, and has ensured Magic's longevity. If it wasn't for the Reserved List magic wouldn't have been able to convince people to invest in card pieces in the secondary market over the years. Not only did this ensure that there was always something to invest in and collect, but it gave developers incentive to design new card pieces that could emulate (to a lesser extent) those powerful and sought after effects (e.g. Black Lotus to Jeweled Lotus). Thus, ensuring a form of reprint equity that set designers can cash in on to make sure a product sells well and gives WotC the funds to continue to invest in new card development.
Wizards of the Coast and HASBRO are not in any way shape or form a friend of the Magic: The Gathering community. They do not care if a product is affordable or not - they simply want to make money - all of the money for all time. If a Reserved List reprint product were produced it would be so egregiously priced that it would make Magic 30th look tame. It would be beyond the reach of the average player and further strain the relationship between Wizards and it's customer base. My personal fear would be if the product did marginally well then Wizards would use these figures to justify an overall price increase on all future products. Sadly, we are seeing more and more expensive premium product (looking at you Commander Masters, Double Masters VIP Edition, Collector's Boxes in general, you get idea). I think the typical (uninformed) argument for an abolished Reserved List inspired the creation of Magic 30th. In my head the product was created by some out of touch CEO who was informed of the demand for reprinted RL cards. Thinking only dollar signs they were motivated to green light the most outlandish and greedy product in Magic's history. The propagation of the nonsense argument of this "majority" of players is only enabling more and more shameless behavior from the CEOs of WotC/HASBRO.
If I missed a petition of roughly 5 million players wishing for the Reserved List to be removed - then i'll at the very least admit that the argument has traction and it is indeed a legitimate demand of the community (But by the Mother of Machines that does not make them right). But I think most players don't give a crap about the Reserved List one way or another. I think it's removal will simply result in another controversy by Wizards pumping out another garbage tier predatory nonsense product that further pisses off it's customer base and doing more harm to the community.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
Edit: Thread closed - and a shame. But logic still stands - if there is a majority of anything then numbers must be stated to some degree, not vague mentionings of surveys whose results cannot be found or clearly demonstrated in a discussion. That's how a majority works.
Edit Edit: @Caerwyn, I couldn't care less what names you call me but I absolutely stand by what I say. If you think I'm being disingenous then I invite you (and anyone else interested) to talk this out on the Tappedout Discord in a voice channel - Mortlocke#5493

ToxicMCTV, you’re right—-Jeweled Lotus would be great in this deck. Then we might as well throw in Mana Crypt, Force of Will, Force of Negation, and why not Timetwister :)

I was thinking if someone wanted to beef it up with more expensive things the first place they could start is with a Jeweled Lotus but I'd have a hard time cutting a card. I love the deck and might build it

First, some general comments.
In its current form, your deck has only a few ramp cards. This is a bit of an issue if you want to have enough resources available (from early-game onwards) for casting spells. Red has few options for ramp, of which you've already included some. Other interesting cards could be stuff like Battle Hymn, Seething Song and especially Skirk Prospector. More expensive ramp options include cards like Dockside Extortionist, Jeska's Will and Mana Echoes.
Aside from red ramping options, there are also many artifacts resources for this. Good options include Arcane Signet, Fire Diamond, Gauntlet of Power, Mind Stone, Nyx Lotus and Sol Ring. There are also more expensive options if you really want to go to town: Chrome Mox, Jeweled Lotus and Mox Opal.
Currently your deck hardly contains card-advantage options (draw, tutoring, filtering, etc.). Of course, red has some options for this. Cathartic Reunion, Faithless Looting, Gamble, Thrill of Possibility, Tormenting Voice and Valakut Awakening Flip. Artifacts can help you on this front as well. Endless Atlas and Mind's Eye come to mind, as well as the more expensive stuff like Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top.
Now, with regard to Krenko himself.
He's an exceptionally powerful commander that your opponents are going to try and get rid off for sure. He needs some protection. Lightning Greaves/Swiftfoot Boots are therefore highly recommended. Stuff that gives him protection/indestructible also works. Next, I would expect that if you could, you would use his ability more than once per turn, should you be able to. There are many artifacts out there that allow you to untap Krenko, so that you can use him again during the same turn. Options include but are not limited to Puppet Strings, Staff of Domination, Sword of the Paruns, Thornbite Staff, Thousand-Year Elixir, Umbral Mantle.
Hope this helped.
