Orcish Lumberjack Discussion

PlupFan on Omnath, Very Upset Locus (2021)

rwn1971 They are both interesting cards. Orcish Lumberjack is cool, he seems like he can ramp Omnath out quickly. I probably wouldn’t run him just because he seems like he can be a bit of a nonbo with a bunch of the cards I love, like Field of the Dead, Scapeshift and Scute Swarm. My playgroup runs a lot of removal, and if someone removes him, you will have put yourself in a bit of a hole. If you run him, you have to be reaaally careful.

Lotus Field Goes well with stuff like Titania, but is a bit on the slow side. Also, a single bit of land destruction would really mess you up.

I haven’t tried these cards out, but best of luck if you decide to! These are just my opinions

This is an interesting idea. Wild Cantor type lists are always kinda cool, the question is what makes them tick. This one really wants to infernal plunge to 8 mana.

Going into Red / Black for Pentad Prism, Culling the Weak and Burnt Offering would be my take. Another option would be green for Orcish Lumberjack & Tinder Wall. There are a bunch of cards that let you cheat mana for one turn, but those sets are the closest to the rest of this build.

I think I'd just go 3/3 on crusher/devastator to increase reliability. I'd also give a little thought to It of the Horrid Swarm (though emerge is a neat mechanic that I'd want to check the cathodion ruling on).

GrimlockVIII on Dream Tribal Commanders

Oh wait shit legendofa already beat me to the punch.

@seshiro_of_orochi I was actually trying to cobble together an Orc tribal deck a few weeks ago, but it mainly consisted of me just shoving all the good orcs and some ogres together into Dune colors cuz I really wanted to use Orcish Lumberjack and Ruric Thar, the Unbowed . Ended up giving up halfway through because I legit had no idea what I was doing and I felt like I was going nowhere with it.

But, like, if there was going to be an Orc Commander, I was thinking Wizards could maybe base him around equipment or vehicles, but more specifically making explicitly shitty equipment and vehicles a million times better, but only when orcs are wielding them. Like, vehicles and equipment could get extra key words and abilities depending on what kind of orc is piloting said vehicle while the hypothetical orc commander is in play.

I based this idea on how orks from the Warhammer 40k universe make their vehicles and weapons work through sheer psychic willpower alone. I just find the concept of painting a tank red to make it go faster pretty funny, and I think translating that into a commander mechanic would give the orc tribe something unique and flavorful.

multimedia on Omnath Elemental Tribal

Hey, for a first deck this is well done on a budget. Nice Foothills Expedition :)

Ask yourself do you need Elemental tribal with Omnath? My advice will hopefully give you ideas of how you can make upgrades with Omnath by getting away from the tribal theme. Omnath by himself is an Elemental engine, creating Elementals with landfall. Focus more on ramp and landfall for Omnath as your main source of Elementals, not other Elemental creatures.

The cards you cast before Omnath should help you to cast Omnath which will do a lot more for gameplay then casting some Elementals before him. Still play some Elementals such as Ashaya, Soul of the Wild and Bane of Progress , but play these because they're good cards not because they're Elementals. Elementals such as Creeping Trailblazer and Lavakin Brawler aren't good enough even with Elemental synergy.

Cards in the early game you want to cast are ramp.

Lotus Cobra , Tireless Provisioner and Stone-Seeder Hierophant are important budget cards because of landfall which makes them combo with Perilous Forays + Omnath to repeatedly pay for the sac activation of Forays.

Ramunap Excavator , Mina and Denn, Wildborn and Moraug, Fury of Akoum are good budget support cards who are not Elementals; they're support comes from interactions with lands. Excavator lets you play lands from your graveyard which is excellent with Fetch lands for landfall: Foothills, Passage, Wilds, Expanse, Myriad Landscape , Naya Panorama , Jund Panorama . Excavator makes cards that make you sac a land when you cast them better since you can then play the land you saced from your graveyard. Excavator is also good with Valakut Exploration which is landfall for card advantage or damage to all opponents.

Wildborn lets you play another land on your turn and it also has an ability to bounce a land you control to give Omnath trample. Moraug can be a win condition with landfall giving you extra combat steps to attack with Omnath and 5/5 Elementals. You get an extra combat step after a main phase for each landfall trigger.

If you're interested in these suggestions then I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

TriusMalarky on Snakes need wheels, they don’t have feet *Primer*

Personally I'd run both Petal and Monke but that's the fast mana lover in me. You might also consider rituals like Desperate Ritual , Pyretic Ritual , Rite of Flame . Also Orcish Lumberjack . Of course, they're just cards I'd run and I had on the top of my head so I threw them at you without rereading the decklist to even know if they're there.

The combination of Burgeoning and Ghost Town with any landfall on board is great.

Seeds of Innocence is a great green alternative to Vandalblast that I've never seen anyone else consider, even though it's cheaper than Creeping Corrosion in mana. I'm using it in my cEDH Marwyn, the Nurturer deck, to blow up a lot of opposing fast mana very early. Getting rid of someone's Mana Vault , Sol Ring , Chrome Mox and Mox Diamond on turn 2 is amazing, and your opponent only gains 2 life for that.

In the same vein, Meltdown is an amazing card if your deck is light on artifacts itself.

My Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire deck is all about ramping out the commander fast, give it haste and have fun with the transformation trigger. Orcish Lumberjack and Tinder Wall are very overlooked and efficient mana dorks to help complete that goal.

Hi there! I sifted through your list and chose 9 cards from amongst the higher price tags that I thought you could live without, then came up with 9 cheaper cards that seem to fit with what you have going here. I hope it's helpful
