-[[Rakdos Guildgate]], +[[Bloodfell Caves]]. Both ETB tapped and add your colours, but the Caves at least gains you 1 life.

[[Chandra, Flamecaller]]'s [+1] makes two 3/1 Elementals with haste. With Omnath out, if they don't block / kill the elementals, they take 6. If they do block / kill the elementals, they take 6 damage :P

While [[Zendikar's Roil]]'s ability isn't keyworded as "Landfall", it functions just like landfall. It also makes 2/2 elementals for every landfall trigger, which are often easier to kill and trigger Omnath.

[[Nissa, Vastwood Seer]] should be easy to transform into Nissa, Sage Animist, and once she's in planeswalker form, she provides decent pseudo draw with her [+1], makes a legendary 4/4 elemental with her [-2], and her [-7] turns 6 lands into 6/6 elementals.

[[Khalni Heart Expedition]] gives nice on demand landfall triggering.

[[Imperious Perfect]] is a great card, but slows down the deck too much (believe me, I've tried it).

-2 [[Legion Warboss]]
-2 [[Pelt Collector]]
+4 [[Glass of the Guildpact]]

This gives you a second reason for all those multicoloured creatures, while dropping cards that don't exactly match the "multicolour matters" theme.

I've been meaning to get my hands on [[Bloodbraid Elf]], just sad it's not a Warrior (for [[Bramblewood Paragon]] ).
As for what it'd replace, I think [[Dwynen's Elite]] might just be the weakest in here.

Banefire opens up an alternative option for a win. Just 1 example: The Nexus Fog deck can Fog an attack, but can do nothing to a Banefire.
Having a mainboard option B is a good thing.

The problem with moving Rhythm mainboard is space. The more non-elf cards I have mainboard, the less Elves I have to trigger Vanquisher's Banner and Beast Whisperer.

I shall do some testing at FNM this weekend and I may tweak the list afterwards.

You seem to be all in on the extra damage granted by [[High Alert]]. Sadly with it being the only effect in the deck, and no reliable way to search for it outside of pure draw (in Standard at least), you'll be inconsistent with the overall performance of the deck.

My suggestion: Add green.
Green gives access to [[Arcades, the Strategist]] to double up on [[High Alert]]'s main effect.
You also get access to [[Saruli Caretaker]] to help with mana fixing.
And [[Tower Defense]] gives you a good amount of burst damage.

Ye, it's all about the combat tricks here.

Holy crap, someone made a comment on a deck I haven't looked at in just over 4 years.

And yes, I know of [[Lumbering Battlement]]. Sadly the delay on returning my cretures is counterproductive.

[[Hero's Downfall]] may be a necessary evil vs Planeswalkers. While the games where close, I've beaten a similar deck off planeswalker ulti's. Downfall should earn at least a few sideboard slots.

With enough low power creatures, [[Mentor of the Meek]] can draw you a lot, especially during the loop.
Similarly, [[Militia Bugler]] can help you dig for non-Battlement creatures.
[[Sailor of Means]] can help you ramp into Battlement.
[[Shield Mare]] would be an awesome sideboard option.

[[Aviation Pioneer]] is already filling the required role.

And it's ideas like this that make me consider splashing white into my Gruul deck for Knight of Autumn (also because of how versatile it is).

The links don't work with all cards, but: "[["card name"]]" (without the quotation marks). It won't show the linked cards for you immediately (need to reload the page) and I don't think it works in Deck Description and How to Play.

Looks like a fun deck. And with all those ETB triggers, [[Mirror Image]] has many worthwhile targets.
Only suggestion I could maybe add is an obvious one: [[Hallowed Fountain]]
