Thought about giving everything flash? Alchemist's Refuge or Vedalken Orrery

Nice deck! I play something similar for a long time. Got some new ideas from your take on Intet like second combat phase with World at War or Hellkite Charger.

Here are some suggestions:

As I understand you don't want to play cards that reveal your topdeck card. So I did not include the whole "see your topdeck card and shuffle"-Theme.

For more ideas you can check out my take on Intet, the Top Deck Queen

Hey! I'm unfortunately going to have to pass on your offer. It's not that I'm not interested in the cards; I just don't think that trade will be good for me in the long run. However, that said, would you potentially be interested in trading your Alchemist's Refuge and Thoughtseize for my Flooded Strand and Shivan Reef?

You should run Command Tower if you can help it! Even with all of the colorless critters running around, you'll want to always have the colored mana on hand to be able to play Animar. You might also like Ancient Ziggurat, City of Brass, Mana Confluence (don't worry about the 1 point of damage, you have 40 life!), Frontier Bivouac and the painlands - namely, Karplusan Forest, Shivan Reef and Yavimaya Coast. Since you need colorless mana for some of the eldrazi, these lands basically make three colors of mana!

For utility lands, Alchemist's Refuge is good in Animar decks (he makes guys cheap enough you'll often have no problem paying the activation cost) as well as Kessig Wolf Run as a mana sink in the late game.

I would recommend Alchemist's Refuge, Aethersnatch, Gather Specimens, Insidious Will, Kefnet's Last Word, Confiscation Coup, and Dack Fayden. I played a deck similarly with Mizzix (It is now time to put on your 3-D glasses). You may also want to consider Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar to say opponents creatures after you steal them, or sac your own so they can't be manipulated.

Thanks for your comment, GeeksterPlays!

I absolutely think Rhystic Study is a better card, but I feel like it draws much more hate than Mystic Remora. I find players often just accept that I'll draw cards off of Mystic Remora, especially as it will go away by itself in just a few turns, whereas being able to pay just one mana to make my Rhystic Study card go away can be very annoying. I might add Rhystic Study in if this deck gets more competitive, but for now, I'll probably leave it out.

Willbreaker + Glimpse the Sun God seems good, but it's a two-card combo where neither piece does anything on its own, and all of my effort can be negated by just killing the Willbreaker.

As for Spitting Image and Stolen Identity, 6 mana seems like a lot for a clone effect, even if it is repeatable. Do you think it's worth it?

And yes, absolutely Alchemist's Refuge, I completely missed it. Thanks!

Rhystic Study might be better than Mystic Remora, no upkeep cost and it's for any spell, in my experience player's don't like paying extra for evrything they do.

If you like stealing stuff then Willbreaker + Glimpse the Sun God is hilarious.

Spitting Image for copying and re-copying shenanigans, and/or Stolen Identity

I love having an Alchemist's Refuge in play.

Throwing in Faerie Artisans for the extreme utility of copying all etb effects from my opponents.

Abuse with Cloudstone Curio to bounce FA in response to the token entering, causing the token to be permanent even if I replay FA.

Panharmonicon still doubles token generation, which gives me double etb to my opponents' one instance

Heck I can even flash this sucker in with Winding Canyons and Alchemist's Refuge to surprise copy an infleuential big drop.

Simply put this is an amazing value piece that makes opponents think twice before playing big etb booties....just keep that Sun Titan and Karmic Guide in hand if you know what's good for ya :P

I'm super excited about this card because frankly I've never seen it before and its refreshing as hell
