Hey I also got an altered Animar, Soul of Elements if you are interested. It was altered by theannihilator

Looks like alot of fun! Animar, Soul of Elements might be a good addition

I don't think that your Cloudstone Curio + morph + Animar, Soul of Elements combo works. Morph creatures have no typing, and thus cannot be bounced by the Curio. It would work if you have something like Hivestone out. You would also need another morph creature to bounce, since curio says "another permanent you control" instead of "any permanant you control", so you might want to look into that if you want to have that combo work.

I live the feel of this deck, regardless of playability it is just a fun looking deck. It almost feels criminal to put this in a format without Animar, Soul of Elements. Although both Omnath, Locus of Mana and Omnath, Locus of Rage are legal here.

You're going to want some non creature spells for ramp/tutor and dealing with your opponents permanents/spells.Apologies if any of these aren't modern legal. I don't keep track of formats.

Also, if he's not already, put Animar on the phone watch list. I know from experience how stupid he can be, and granting access to Black seems really overbearing.

Narset, Enlightened Master
Zur the Enchanter
Zurgo Helmsmasher
Uril, the Miststalker
Mizzix of the Izmagnus

Those are the ones that come to the top of my head. The first four tend to turn into a pseudo-voltron build, but don't have to

I run a creatureless Narset build and it is fun, but challenging (which is what I wanted). I have an Animar, Soul of Elements deck with ~50 creatures and other creature based decks so I wanted to try something new

The challenge is that if your opponents can keep your commander off of your battlefield it's kinda hard to win. Be ready for Mind Control effects, Counterspells, Nevermore, etc

Essential cards include Cavern of Souls, Homeward Path, and equipment to keep opponents from targeting your commander

I also run manlands like Needle Spires in case I can get extra beats in or need a blocker.

mana symbol w/mana symbol u/x will give you the most pillowfort options to stave off attackers. Also Counterspells. Just be ready for people messing w your commander!
