Snow-Covered Forest Discussion

I'm going to parrot something that was said before (and this obviously isn't about Zendikar which we're all looking at closely but OP hasn't made the change yet and really should) and say this deck needs to add Field of the Dead. Drop Reliquary Tower, put in Field and split half your basics over to snow covered (7 Forest basics, 7 Snow-Covered Forest and 3 Mountain basics, 3 Snow-Covered Mountain). I have this deck in paper (and basically this exact list minus a couple lands like Cradle and Taiga) and it's far too easy to start pumping out zombies on top of everything else. It synergizes extremely well with what the deck (token doublers, ramp, etb damage effects, draw card effects, sac outlets, etc etc etc) is doing and takes nothing away from the deck. It's an absolute upgrade and OP should make the change.

Fetchlands should be replaced by more Snow-Covered Forests, no? Anti-synergy with Root Maze seems way more detrimental than occasionally wanting to fetch Dryad Arbor. Unless there is some other reason for their inclusion I am not seeing?

Full and extensive write-up for the last update is coming before the end of the week, but the changes that are for sure coming and already in the list are:
Cloudstone Curio out for Hyrax Tower Scout.
As of now, our girl has a 35% winrate on a sample size of 17 games that are being recorded thanks our wonderful discord community and of course, many, MANY thanks to SynergyBuild.

As for your maybe vs main I don't see why Goblin Cannon is there... maybe I'm missing a combo, not sure. Wilderness Reclamation would be a nice addition though I think especially combined with Seedborn Muse which you have.

Of the four, I've had Omnath, Locus of Rage the longest. I initially swapped back and forth with Xenagos, God of Revels a few times, and I felt Omnath won more games. Plus it spooks away and can win off of board wipes.
Omnath, Locus of Mana because I'd built so many G/x decks that I had a lot of overflow. Going with Snow-Covered Forests and Extraplanar Lens leveled it up, among other things. They're always printing green bombs (cough cough Nyxbloom Ancient)
Omnath, Locus of the Roil steps on the Gruul version's toes. They often feel like the same deck imho. This guy might even do it better. Adding blue and the straight value from the commander + lands likely makes this the most competitive when built right.
I took apart temur omnath to build Omnath, Locus of Creation and can't wait for it to release n play some games. I think this will be more of a high risk/reward deck due to four colors.
Someday I'll rebuild roil, but for now I'll rock , , and

unwucht I took your suggestion and removed Llanowar Tribe and Fyndhorn Elder for Avenger of Zendikar and Tooth and Nail. I also chose to remove Nissa, Vital Force and add an Extraplanar Lens and upgraded to Snow-Covered Forest. If I can get the Lens out then it will make up for the two missing mana babies.

I was a bit intrigued so I threw a list together to test it for a couple of games against E-tron and Jund (my typical standards against which I first test new Modern decks) and the results of 3 games was actually quite promising. Silent Scepter took them all (granted it was going first in each game, but winning on the play against meta staples is the first hurdle a new concept should be able to overcome). I moved the concept to Bant to better play along the Tempo axis, and the exact list I tested was this:
Planeswalker: 3 Teferi, Time Raveler
Sorcery: 4 Serum Visions
Artifact: 4 Isochron Scepter
Don't actually know what the sideboard should look like but I figure cage is solid into Dredge, Lukka combo, and Neoform combo with potential to be useful in matchups where opponents are playing Uro, Kroxa, or Snapcasters as well. A couple extra paths for more aggro oriented strategies that land creatures before tempo control elements come online on turn 2 (Boggles, Hardened Scales, E-tron, Death's Shadow, Prowess, etc). Veil versus any deck running targeted discard or removal like Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Tropy, or Fatal Push (Grixis, Jund), And a couple of extra countermagic options to defend against other targeted removal like Abrade, or opposing spell based tempo concepts like Burn. Gotta say, even though I haven't play tested this idea ton, it does seem an idea with quite a bit of merit in Modern these days. Certainly has the potential to be a strong performer in the meta up to the point Teferi gets it's deserved ban.

The idea looks fun but I would redesign this into a Mill deck. You can still use the crabs you have, plus you can use Horseshoe Crab and Ancient Crab in combo with Phenax, God of Deception. Take advantage of those crabs' high toughness.
After that you need spells to answer your enemy's moves. Counterspells and removal will help you survive. There's also a lot of non-creature spells that Mill, like Glimpse the Unthinkable.
