Omnath, Locus of the Roil Discussion

Profet93: Thank you for the support! The great part about Om_rath is that there are many ways you can build him. You seem to favor a "makes your lands into elementals" strategy, which is great. It is not my cup of tea though. You mention that I run Sylvan Awakening but I don't think I ever have in this list. I do in my Omnath, Locus of the Roil deck, but not this one. This being said, this also counts out Rude Awakening and Kamahl’s Will in my book.
Castle Garenbrig is another card that is better for a higher creature count deck. Maybe a tribal version of this deck. When it comes to Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth, the Tomb scenario is good, but I never hurt for green mana in this deck, so that isn't enough reason to include it. My land slots are really tight. We need to keep a good number of basics due to all the land ramp we run.
Valakut Awakening Flip is so good because it is a decent card with a HUGE upside of being a land when I want it to. Augur of Autumn will rarely trigger Coven because of all my 5/5s and low creature count, and just getting a land off the top isn't worth a slot to me. Not a bad card by any means though.
Sorry, it kind of feels like I shut you down.... I don't think any of the cards you suggested are bad, they just don't fit my playstyle. I really do appreciate all the suggestions and feedback!

Whenever ~ attacks, its controller may create two Treasure Tokens. If they do, target opponent gains control of ~ at the beginning of the next upkeep.
Pay 1 life, : Put a +1/+1 counter on ~. Any player may activate this ability at any time. Whenever a player activates this ability, they must lose 1 life for each time it has been activated.

From my last post, I mentioned Om-Nom, or The Mean Green Jelly Bean and his variants. I forgot Omnath, Locus of the Roil, but I would like to see a WUBRG Jelly Bean!

I feel this is a good time to plug my new Commander Variant, and offer some of my favs from that:

unwucht, yeah, after a game night awhile back with my pod, I realized I needed to break their parity while I’m accelerating, so that they couldn’t stop me from going off. It’s the same tactic I used in my retired Omnath, Locus of the Roil deck. So I made adjustments that were similar to that strategy. It’s been very entertaining so far.

Love the deck idea. I always kick around the idea of an Omnath, Locus of the Roil deck, but haven’t made one yet.
One thing to note is that, unfortunately, Rhythm of the Wild won’t give tokens haste. Scampering scorcher can, if you’re leaning towards elementals to synergize with Omnath’s second ability, it’s pretty good.

My decks tend to have a pattern of meiosis. I started out building a few two-color decks, but in time, I ended up splitting the colors, each half of the deck growing out to their individual outspoken parts.
What started as a Mina and Denn, Wildborn landfall deck, became on one hand a mono green landfall deck with Rhonas the Indomitable in charge, which very recently changed into Omnath, Locus of Mana big green ramp. On the other hand, the red half melded into Etali, Primal Storm big red, big burn deck, that's now helmed by Kumano, Master Yamabushi .
My Athreos, God of Passage aristocrats deck split into Rankle, Master of Pranks and Heliod, God of the Sun the same way, and my The Locust God deck split into Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and a mono blue deck, now led by Naru Meha, Master Wizard .
Out of the 13 decks I currently have, 8 of them are monocolored and one of them is colorless. The multicolored decks that remain, are held together by synergies that demand more than one, like Boros equipments ( Akiri, Line-Slinger + Arden, Intrepid Archaeologist ) , Jund Sacrifice ( Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire ), Temur Landfall Omnath, Locus of the Roil and 5C Shrines (Golos, by lack of inspiration). But now that I have two different Omnath decks, I have an itch to build the other two Omnaths as well. That's pretty much how my patterns keep changing, a new line connecting current decks usually leads to inspiration to build the next.
I do notice my developed preference for monocolored decks, but I don't feel hindered by this way of thinking. I like leaning into it, finding cool ways within the limits of the color, to make the decks suprising anyway, to make them as interesting as can be for me to play.

Okay, so I see where you're going with a lot of your suggestions. Budget, at this point, is a constraint so the pricier cards like Cloudstone Curio, Gaea's Cradle, even Sylvan Library are probably a No Go. And I'd probably go with Budgethoof Behemoth, aka End-Raze Forerunners since I have them on hand.
I think, for card draw, I completely forgot about Elemental Bond which definitely feels like a much better option than Colossal Majesty and doesn't have the cast requirement of Beast Whisperer. But I don't see why I can't also use Beast Whisperer. And Regal Force looks like something I need. Seer's Sundial might not work out but something I'm toying with.
Unfortunately I 100% misread Curious Herd and thought it worked exactly like Dockside Extortionist . That said, 4 mana for even 3 3/3 beast tokens doesn't seem horrible, and if that's the floor of the spell, it might be worth keeping in. That said, this is a go wide deck with elements to buff up my creatures, so I may just replace the herd with Arasta of the Endless Web and let my opponents put tokens on my board for me.
I like Magus of the Order, if for no other reason than I have it and Natural Order has a price tag. But also, it's easy enough to drop Liege of the Tangle in favor of other worthy fatties to summon, including something like Dawnglade Regent .
Bow of Nylea can def come out in favor of another creature. The Frostfang can't come out as soon but that's okay! And good call on Roiling Regrowth. That said, Nylea herself I think does so much on her own that I don't see me dropping her in favor of something that only does part of what she does. Rhonas's Monument is definitely worth looking into though!
I'll have to look into more of the suggestions you made. I actually use a lot of them in my Omnath, Locus of the Roil deck (the first three anyway lol). Oracle of Mul Daya is among the pricier cards I probably can't grab right now. I'm hemming and hawing on the Tireless Tracker because I don't know that I'll have a chance to really take advantage of the clues, but to your point, they can trigger Kodama so that's something to consider!
And hmmmm. Quirion Ranger is curious.
I'm also looking at adding some other cards, such as Kamahl’s Will , Territorial Scythecat , Shifting Ceratops , Primeval Bounty , Branching Evolution , Fertilid , Garruk's Uprising , Court of Bounty and Reclamation Sage . So if you have thoughts on those, let me know!
I really appreciate all the insight and feedback!

Love it, thanks for the feedback! I appreciate you leaning in and finding some great additions for the deck!
This build was my first crack at a 5-color deck and Horde just happened to be the card I went with.
My objective was to build something that was budget and that could easily satisfy the 5-color Horde activation requirement while filling up the graveyard with some big creatures for value! Woo! (All hopefully on curve haha)
There are lots of secondary synergies which would potentially be removed to make the deck run smoother as well as a more refined mana base/ramp package. ex: Might of the Nephilim is in there to sneak in with some commander damage.
One objective was to fill the deck with cards which tap for WUBRG to easily get the ball going, this combined with Tidal Force was an attempt at an engine. Greenwarden of Murasa is a powerhouse in the deck with the past games for getting tutors and good non-elementals back to hand. Rings of Brighthearth was one card which I found awesome however was out-of-budget.
If you look at my page I've built a more pricey Omnath, Locus of the Roil deck with some of the powerhouse elementals that come out to $8 and up.
You were bang on about the murderers axe as a discard outlet and I love the alternative. I also like the idea of Wispmare, and Ingot Chewer as synergistic alternatives to the other removal in the deck.
Again, thanks for the feedback, much appreciated! I hope this helps provide some more detail into where my mind was going with this build. If you've got any more suggestions keep em coming!
