I recently taught my niece the basics of magic and she wants to play with our commander group. She tried a few of my decks and the small interactions eluded her (like gaining life triggers in oloro). I was thinking of building her a deck with Omnath at the helm with ramp, big creatures, and maybe a little more landfall triggers.

Getting family members to play is always fun. So big creature stompy? Does it have to be Omnath, because there are plenty of big stompy builds. I just feel Omnath can take some careful strategy than just stompy.

I'm open to suggestions. I was thinking RG would be the most fun with big creatures and big spells. Lots of ramp into blaze or earthquake as well.

Seems like a solid place to start. You might want to take a look for some of the stuff that cares about 5 power from Alara block. Mighty Emergence, Spellbreaker Behemoth, etc.

For a new player, you probably want to keep the number of mechanics you're using to a minimum and look for versions that have reminder text if there have been multiple printings.

So, you meant Omnath, Locus of Rage, not Omnath, Locus of Mana. Angry Omnath could do a good Stompy deck, and could even be made Elemental Tribal if she wants more flavor.

Atarka, World Render, Xenagos, God of Revels, Thromok the Insatiable, Stonebrow, Krosan Hero and Rosheen Meanderer are other possibilities to consider depending on the direction she wants to take the deck. Perhaps a deck that uses a couple of these options, so that the General could be changed out so she can try a few options would work.
