- Spoiler Alert: New Omnath Confusion
- When do banished creatures return?
- Legend Rule
- Will using Mirrorpool to copy Titania, Protector of Argoth allow me to put Mirrorpool back on the battlefield with Titania's triggered ability?
- When attacking with Omnath LoR equipped with Blade of Selves, can I sac elemental between the tokens ETB and the legend rule application?

Omnath, Locus of Rage Discussion

A favourite of mine is Sylvan Safekeeper. It can mess up your opponents' plans to deal with your board, and you often don't even need to activate. The threat of activation is enough to ward off removal.
Just Birds of Paradise or Avacyn's Pilgrim can advance your game plan far enough, and people don't kill them as they would in a 1v1 format. When they do die to the inevitable wrath, their value has already been gotten. But, if you prefer land-based ramp, Wood Elves is fine. Fauna Shaman can also be fun.
For six-drops and more, I almost never run them unless they can command a game on their own or are powerful enough to warp your game plan around them, save for my Xenagos, God of Revels deck. :)
Pathbreaker Ibex can end games on one attack, and thus is fun for one player. Sigarda, Host of Herons is one I include in some decks, fulfilling a similar role to the Sylvan Safekeeper. Many creatures are just incidentally humans. Dragonlord Dromoka can really defend your turn nicely, so that can be fun. For a more on-theme finisher, Omnath, Locus of Rage beseems this strategy.
Hope this helps!

I like Simic Ascendancy as a weird win condition that suits Omnath's flavor. Nyxbloom Ancient for the mana tripling abilities. Hadana's Climb Flip as a way of getting one really big creature across the line. You can try using Blasphemous Act to wrath away your tokens as long as you have Omnath, Locus of Rage out.
Also one of the most tried and true methods of green creature based strategies finishers the Craterhoof Behemoth

If your opponent is able to do lethal damage sacrificing his elementals to deal you damage to annihilator, he will win.
Annihilator is a triggered ability that triggers when the creature with annihilator attacks.
702.85a Annihilator is a triggered ability. “Annihilator N” means “Whenever this creature attacks, defending player sacrifices N permanents.”
The combat phase is split into different steps.
- Beginning of Combat
- Declare Attackers Step
- Declare Blockers Step
- Combat Damage Step
- End of Combat
Annihilator will trigger during the declare attackers step. Due to that, your opponent will be forced to sacrifice permanents during this step. The triggers that happen from sacrificing permanents also occur during this step. So when your opponent sacrifices elementals to annihilator, the triggers from Omnath, Locus of Rage will go onto the stack during the declare attackers step.
For your Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to deal combat damage to your opponent, it needs to be the combat damage step. If you die to the triggers during the declare attackers step, you will not be able to deal your opponent the lethal damage during the combat damage step.

Zendikar's Roil does sound like a nice alternative. However, this deck makes it much easier to search for creatures rather than enchantments, and even with Omnath, Locus of Rage 's cost, we'll most likely send him to the graveyard to reanimate him with Horde of Notions . On top of that, with Yarok, the Desecrated out, I'll be getting 10/10 worth of P/T over 4/4, so I can use them for swinging and chump blocking. Plus I get the damage on death trigger with Omnath too. I'm still on the fence about including Teysa Karlov as well for those triggers, but I'll only add her in if I get a reasonable number of them.
Also I should note that I'm more focused on the ETB triggers of elementals rather than lands. Omnath would provide equal amounts of offense and defense, but giving all my creatures vigilance through Brave the Sands is another option. Plus I can double block with them to guarantee they hit the graveyard just so I can reanimate them and get those ETB triggers again.

Go fer Omnath, Locus of Rage ! ! ! (Assuming you want to focus on lands)
Karametra, God of Harvests is cool tho. The wife ran her for a minute when we first got into EDH with friends. I'd say she's more of a support commander that helps you dig for lands as you play creatures from the 99
If casting creatures get you lands... then play creatures that toolbox! Lotus Cobra , Beast Whisperer , Reclamation Sage , Thalia, Heretic Cathar , etc. Duplicant is one of my pet cards. Temur Sabertooth for the winmore

As someone who has all three Omnaths built and sleeved, I think they're all super fun!
For a while I thought Omnath, Locus of Rage was my favorite. Then I felt Omnath, Locus of Mana was the king. Then after building Omnath, Locus of the Roil I thought I'd found my new favorite. Honestly although the newer two do have some overlapping synergies, you can have all three built and feel the flavors are different.
I did go a more budget friendly route with Omnath, Locus of the Roil and having a heavy elemental theme. I run the other two omnaths in the 99. I do also run the Deadeye Navigator / Palinchron combo for the insta-win
Mono G for me is straight beatdown
I'd say Omnath, Locus of the Roil is probably the "easy" commander, since you have removal and card advantage in the command zone. This is assuming you have the land base for 3c
Gruul is a good direction if you see a lot of boardwipes in your meta. The Lightning Bolt effect is nothing to scoff at. I occasionally win by crapping out tokens then using my own 'wipe to finish the table
Just my $0.02

I'm currently running Omnath, Locus of Rage . He has made a fantastic budget build and has been super effective. He's only gotten better with time as a stretch out my budget.

HeyBeebles awesome deck and primer I thoroughly enjoyed reading it!
I was thinking if the goal of the deck is to be unassuming would Tendershoot Dryad be a better fit than Omnath, Locus of Rage or Rampaging Baloths (I know blasphemous right) which are traditionally kill on sight targets for any land deck opponent. In addition the lack of haste or sac outlet enablers it feels like omnath is a sitting duck.
Another question would be why isn’t Elvish Reclaimer in the main board, yes it takes a turn to get going but a Crop Rotation effect is invaluable to up the consistency of the deck (especially during draw go turns)
Is there an argument to add Castle Garenbrig green ramp since most of your creatures are green, Living Twister a commander deck should be able to function without its commander and this mirrors M&D’s bounce ability, Tempt with Discovery vs Traverse the Outlands any land into play seems huge, Kessig Wolf Run Gives the deck late game staying power when even Dryad Arbor can swing for lethal
I’ve got an edited version on your list on my profile if you’re interested in taking a look
Thanks for the awesome deck!
