Is it possible for you to use the replicate ability (Such as in the spell Pyromatics) for free with the Omniscience enchantment up?

How to autocard [card]Pyromatics[/card] = Pyromatics
Omniscience

No.  Replicate is an additional cost.  You may cast Pyromatics without paying its mana cost.  If you want to replicate it you must pay any additional costs.


_Magic: The Gathering_ Comprehensive Rules

These rules are effective as of October 1, 2012.

702.54a Replicate is a keyword that represents two abilities. The first is a static ability that functions while the spell with replicate is on the stack. The second is a triggered ability that functions while the spell with replicate is on the stack. "Replicate [cost]" means "As an additional cost to cast this spell, you may pay [cost] any number of times" and "When you cast this spell, if a replicate cost was paid for it, copy it for each time its replicate cost was paid. If the spell has any targets, you may choose new targets for any of the copies." Paying a spell's replicate cost follows the rules for paying additional costs in rules 601.2b and 601.2e-g.

No.  Replicate is an additional cost.  Omniscience gets around mana costs, you still have to pay any additional costs.

No. The "mana cost" of a card is just what's listed in the upper right corner of the card. Any additional costs that aren't listed there aren't covered by Omniscience, even if they involve paying mana. Replicate is one such additional cost.
