I have verified the HP Omen with AMD card work when hooked up to a 2018 Macbook Pro and a 2019 Mac Mini.  However with my 2015 Macbook pro and TB3-TB2 Apple cable, the card is not energized / activated.  The TB3/2 cable has been tested with hooking up the 2015 Macbook Pro in Thunderbolt drive slave mode to both the 2018 Macbook Pro and 2019 Mac Mini.  So all the cables work fine, the HP Omen and AMD card.  The only thing left is the software configuration on the mac with Mojave and the Egpu EFI was used after purge wrangler had also no effect.

Any suggestions?

I've had the same problem - exactly the same computer, GPU and enclosure. Simply put: TB2 doesn't kick HP Omen to work. If you have spare ATX PSU with a physical on/off switch, try to swap HP's original with it and share results. Personally, I gave up with Omen and bought Akitio Node which works flawlessly.

Thank you Blushing Cheeks!  This gives me a clue that it's an HP Omen / TB2 problem.  I will get an Akitio and test.  Can you post what software if any you used outside normal OS X Mojave?
