Modern Four Color Omnath Pile by Gabriel Nassif
Four color decks have been popular in Modern since Omnath, Locus of Creation was printed. It’s an incredible card advantage tool that grants you a huge amount of life as well as cantripping, threating damage with its last ability and just being a 4/4 as well.
Omnath’s colors also let you play with two incredibly powerful card in Modern – Teferi, Time Raveler and Wrenn and Six. They’re two great ways for your control deck to stabilize against aggro and stop a big chunk of the metagame, aka cascade decks and X/1s.
Won the Modern Challenge, guess awful Jeskai wasn't so bad after all.
List made sense in theory but figured it would still be no match for the craziness that is Modern rn even if I got the matchups I wanted but deck played out nicely and I dodged the really bad matchups. pic.twitter.com/ZH0jU4s9M2

Today’s deck is his own invention again. Starting from the winning Jeskai deck, he thought the green splash wasn’t that costly and the two cards you get from it – Wrenn and Six and Omnath, Locus of Creation – were very worthwhile.
Prismatic Ending has quickly become the best removal spell after Lightning Bolt. It’s pretty common for you to see Ending over Path to Exile in control decks nowadays because you just can’t afford to Path a Ragavan on turn one.
Fire // Ice is another nice addition to control decks, as cheap removal (although not too cheap) that you can play on turn two to Ice an opponent’s land.
Solitude is a situational one-of that Gabriel Nassif loves (just look at his sideboard!). I’ve liked Solitude a lot in Jace, the Mind Sculptor decks. Protecting your eight planeswalker with a free removal spell is definitely something new to Modern. Also, have you ever had the pleasure of playing a Solitude on a creature while Death’s Shadow is in play? It’s a delight!
