Until your next turn, all lands you control become 2/2 Elemental creatures with reach, indestructible, and haste. They’re still lands.

Omnath, Locus of Rage is the overt, "look at me being dangerous" commander.
Omnath, Locus of the Roil is a value engine that adds blue to your color identity. Mystic Sanctuary loops, tricksy stuff like Avenger of Zendikar with Mystic Reflection, loops with Walking Atlas and Retreat to Coralhelm, maybe Roil Elemental, blue really adds a lot to landfall decks that Gruul just can't provide. Or you could be Oneshotting people with Sylvan Awakening, turning 25 lands into elementals, playing your commander and sending the ETB trigger to someone's face.
Gruul and Temur Omnath just will not result in the same decks, the same way that the average OG Omnath, Locus of Mana deck won't look much like the Gruul Omnath deck. Just try and see if the blue additions fit your playstyle, and save a decklists for the Gruul build, in case it doesn't.

You can link cards by enclosing their name in double brackets.

Yes, copies have the exact text printed on what they copy as modified by other copy effects, by its face-down status, and by “as . . . enters the battlefield” and “as . . . is turned face up” abilities that set power and toughness. So the copies will trigger the ETB to bounce lands. The copies also will not be animate lands and will enter tapped. (Unless you are counting the lairs as bounce lands, those don't enter tapped.)

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!

This is a really cool deck that I think capitalizes on a cute interaction with mutate!
If the goal is to avoid killing your own creatures with Sarulf's trigger, I'd add move ways to animate lands. Budget ways to do this would be awaken and pseudo-awaken spells like Earthen Arms, Awakening of Vitu-Ghazi, and Liege of the Tangle or more temporary effects like Sylvan Awakening. Hissing Quagmire is a bit expensive, but you seem to have a little wiggle room and would also go great in here. I'd definitely add a Darksteel Citadel if you can fit it in your budget, so that way you have an indestructible permanent you can animate and mutate onto.
Thanks for sharing the deck!
