MtG Commander: Omnath, Locus of the Roil

The problem with Omnath is that they want to be elemental tribal, +1/+1 counters, and landfall at the same time. I blame it on Risen Reef.

This deck wins sometimes, but usually becomes trigger hell without accomplishing very much. It also draws hate because it looks impressive while it’s not doing anything.

I’m taking this apart so I can build a pure lands deck. I chose Gretchen Titchwillow as the commander, and I’ll probably build it around land bouncing and card draw.

MtG Commander: Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Here is my attempt at a Meren Modular deck. The deck uses Meren of Clan Nel Toth‘s ability to recur Modular creatures, collecting all the +1/+1 counters on fewer creatures. I haven’t had it happen yet, but the ultimate goal was to play Ashnod’s Transmogrant on Meren and drop all the counters on her in her new artifact form. Practical? Nope. Fun? Yeah, I liked it.

The deck did well with recurring ramp, but there aren’t enough Modular creatures for it to consistently function. I could probably increase my self-mill to compensate, but it’s also slow because I don’t have many ways to ramp my experience counters early on. It is fun to play, but I’d like to build a Modular deck with another commander.
