Both sides of this card have a lot going on, so be sure to read them carefully.

At the beginning of your upkeep, you may exile Cosima. If you do, it gains “Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, if Cosima is exiled, you may put a voyage counter on it. If you don’t, return Cosima to the battlefield with X +1+1 counters on it and draw X cards, where X is the number of voyage counters on it.”

While a three-mana 2/4 isn’t that impressive, the real fun begins once you untap with it and get to decide to exile it or not. If you have a flow of lands coming, you can exile Cosima and start to build up the voyage counters. Then if you are out of lands or need specific cards, bring Cosima back from exile as a larger creature and draw some cards. The longer the voyage for Cosima, the better the payoff.

Whenever a vehicle you control deals combat damage to a player, that player exiles that many cards from the top of their library. You may play lands from among those cards for as long as they remain exiled.

As The Omenkeel, you get a two-mana 3/3 Vehicle that only requires a power of one to crew. Not only do you get to start beating down as early as the third turn, you can find lands from your opponent’s deck to build your mana base, setting up more fuel for Cosima when/if you have deployed the God. And if you have other Vehicles on the battlefield, they can also help you discover more lands for the taking. Notably, once The Omenkeel exiles any number of lands, you may play them, no matter if The Omenkeel is on the battlefield or not.
