Last week I made the case that Omnath, Locus of Creation is the best creature ever printed.

That statement is open to debate, but I think everyone would agree it's the best creature in Standard—or at least it was, before it was banned there this past Monday.

With it also being added to the Historic Suspended list, it's no longer playable in constructed formats on Magic Arena. So if it's truly the best creature ever, Omnath, Locus of Creation must now prove itself in the bigger ponds of Magic Online formats like Modern, where it's already on the way to taking over yet another metagame.

Modern presents a perfect sweet spot for Omnath, Locus of Creation. Modern has a metagame more open to innovation than long-established Eternal formats Vintage and Legacy, but unlike Pioneer's smaller cardpool, it contains the ten fetch lands. Fetch lands present an easy mode for unlocking Omnath's landfall triggers, and are critical for truly making the most of the creature. In Modern you can even go further with Wrenn and Six, which is banned in Legacy, to keep these fetch lands flowing and ensure Omnath never runs out of fuel.

This combination of Omnath, Locus of Creation with Wrenn and Six serves as the backbone of two distinct archetypes now threatening to dominate the metagame. Decks featuring the pair took the top three spots in Sunday's Modern Challenge, and they were included in four of the seven decks that achieved a successful 4-1 or better record in Monday's Modern Prelim.

Four-Color Copycat

Omnath, Locus of Creation has emerged as a perfect tool for the Saheeli Rai and Felidar Guardian "Copycat" combo deck, and has helped elevate the deck to a top-tier strategy after years of existing as a mere curiosity. It won Sunday's Challenge in the hands of Magic Pro League member and streamer Piotr "kanister" Glogowoski, and this exposure has led to a surge in its popularity, with two 4-1 runs in the following day's Preliminary.

Omnath, Locus of Creation is a perfect marriage with the Copycat combo deck. Historically the deck has utilized creatures with enter-the-battlefield abilities in order to generate value from Saheeli Rai ability to copy a creature, or Felidar Guardian ability to blink one. Omnath fits that role by drawing a card when it enters play, but it's also a potent threat, not a mere value creature. Typically Copycat has filled this spot with cards like Ice-Fang Coatl that do a good job of generating value, but are not game-winning plans unto themselves like Omnath.

Omnath, Locus of Creation ability to generate mana is especially potent in the deck, as it can be spent to play either of the combo pieces immediately. This sets up for a combo the following turn, and leads to a massive tempo gain that no pure value creature can match. It puts the opponent under tremendous pressure, and whether they deal with Omnath or the combo piece, they'll still be at risk of losing to the other.

3b1932b0-1d09-4e2f-8903-45945459ddf2

As such a powerful card by itself, Omnath, Locus of Creation demands removal, so it goes even further in supporting the combo. Felidar Guardian has always been the weak point of the combo because it's vulnerable to creature removal destroying it and stopping the infinite loop with Saheeli Rai. Adding a must-kill creature like Omnath to soak up this removal helps ensure the coast is clear for a successful combo attempt, so it's a big upgrade over a pure value creature like Ice-Fang Coatl the opponent can simply ignore.

Supporting Omnath, Locus of Creation is Wrenn and Six, which remains one of the best cards legal in Modern and is a great fit here. Beyond its ability to maintain a flow of fetch lands for Omnath, it's just a solid source of card advantage and mana fixing in the early game. While the deck doesn't have a deep spell count to use with its ultimate, both Path to Exile and Remand are capable of locking out creature opponents or control decks respectively, and sideboard spells add more options.

All of this is rounded out by the companion Jegantha, the Wellspring. It's not an exceptionally powerful or particularly useful card, but its inclusion is essentially free. Access to a big, dumb threat will be valuable when the deck is playing a more fair game, like those based around Omnath, Locus of Creation. It's a cherry on top of an otherwise already sweet deck, and while it usually won't matter, sometimes it will be just what the deck needs to close out a game. Kanister claimed Jegantha won two games over the course of his Challenge win, and that's well worth a mere one card in the sideboard.

Omnath, Locus of Creation is exactly what the Copycat combo needed to become a top-tier contender in Modern. Previously it was almost entirely focused on its combo, and was too one-dimensional in its strategy. Omnath bridges between the fair game plan and the combo pieces by functioning as a value engine to pair with them. It also protects these combo pieces by drawing out disruption as a powerful game-winning threat on its own. Omnath is a perfect fit into the Copycat game plan, and has kicked off a new golden era for the deck.

Four-Color Control

If Omnath, Locus of Creation helps Copycat combo win fair games, it naturally also excels as a tool for controlling decks. For that reason Omnath has been adopted as a staple of Modern's Four-Color Control decks.

Since the printing of Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, Bant and Four-Color Control decks have been at the forefront of Modern. Omnath, Locus of Creation has found a perfect home in them and further strengthened their grip on the metagame. Four-Color Omnath Control took 2nd and 3rd in Sunday's Modern Challenge, and earned two players a 4-1 record in Monday's preliminary.

Omnath, Locus of Creation does a great job of stabilizing against aggressive decks. With the ability to gain life the turn it enters play, it acts something like a super-charged Siege Rhino, Loxodon Hierarch, or Kitchen Finks. These have previously been staples of controlling decks because of their ability to squash aggressive decks with a combination of life gain and a body, but Omnath goes even further by threatening more life each turn after. With the ability to trigger on the opponent's turn as well with the aid of fetch lands, it truly demands removal immediately.

Beyond its ability to crush aggressive decks like Burn with its life gain, Omnath, Locus of Creation is also a potent threat against midrange and control decks. While its life gain is mostly irrelevant here, its ability to generate mana and deal damage are at a premium. Even without triggering landfall, the fact that it draws a card before trading with a removal spell puts it on the winning side of the battle.

The potential for Omnath, Locus of Creation to kill opposing planeswalkers is also very important in Modern, where many opponents play a large mix of them, and Omnath threatens them all at once. Omnath's ability to damage opponents themselves will be at its best against combo decks, where speed is of the essence.

Before Omnath, Locus of Creation, Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath-based control decks were already in charge of Modern. Omnath has only made them better, so until either of these cards is banned or some very impressive new cards drastically shake up the metagame, nothing will change that fact.

Four-Color Urza

Omnath, Locus of Creation is still getting started in Modern. It was an immediate and obvious addition to Four-Color Control, and has taken a couple weeks to come into its own in Copycat, but there are more potential homes.

One intriguing place it has shown up is alongside Urza, Lord High Artificer in a shell with Yorion, Sky Nomad.

Urza, Lord High Artificer decks have never been the same since the Mox Opal ban, but the card remains a potent threat, mana engine, and source of card advantage. It also pairs naturally with Yorion, Sky Nomad to generate even more value. Now this strategy has gone further by splashing white for Omnath, Locus of Creation as an additional value engine. Its "draw a card" ability is great for getting more mileage from Yorion, all while adding yet another threat and angle to the strategy.

Omnath, Locus of Creation mana ability is especially valuable here, and can be sunk into Yorion, Sky Nomad—by either grabbing Yorion from the sideboard or casting it to blink Omnath and friends for more value. With lots of ways to accelerate into Omnath, it will hit play early and start generating value immediately. Wrenn and Six is already a common inclusion next to Urza, Lord High Artificer, so Omnath has no lack of fetch lands to fuel it.

Omnath, Locus of Creation is simply a great inclusion in what boils down to a midrange deck, adding a powerful and flexible tool effective against every type of opponent. Urza has struggled all year as second-class citizens in the metagame, but the deck's ability to wield Omnath could help it become a top contender again like it was a year ago.

Omnath's Future in Modern

Omnath, Locus of Creation was just too good for Standard. It's much more reasonable in the fast-paced, high-powered world of Modern, but I can imagine a reality where it's eventually banned there too. With fetch lands unlocking its full potential, it's easy to extract all the value Omnath is capable of, whether that's as an oppressive life gain, mana, or damage engine. Add in the card draw that makes it difficult to get an even trade with, and you have one of the finest cards in the format.

The smart Modern money is taking advantage of Omnath, Locus of Creation, and I recommend doing the same.
