Animar, Soul of Elements Discussion

In my non-control decks I try to run close to 35 creatures. Xenagos, God of Revels, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Kaalia of the Vast, etc

In control decks I run like 10 lol (Sen Triplets)

In Animar, Soul of Elements I think I currently have 48 creatures, where Domri Rade is a great draw engine

Hey buddafinga007, thanks for taking the time to comment and make some suggestions!

Oblivion Sower is a very interesting card. However, my list prioritized generating mana with artifacts instead of lands since mana rocks can tap for mana and then be flickered by Brago for reuse on the same turn - effectively doubling their mana production. Note how Brago cannot target lands with his ability (otherwise he would be utterly broken). I am also looking to blow up lands from time to time with cards like Armageddon, so lands have less overall value here than artifact ramp. Lastly, Sower's trigger is when cast as opposed to when it enters the battlefield, meaning Brago cannot flicker it for reuse. This card might have a home in something like Animar, Soul of Elements if you are looking to mill the opponent(s) through combo.

Regarding Invocation of Saint Traft, I generally steer clear of auras unless they are very strong, or I am playing an enchantress deck. Note, I am not even running Unquestioned Authority, Pentarch Ward, or Traveler's Cloak which are typical inclusions in many Brago goodstuff lists due to the repeatable card draw. Since Brago is generally looking to blink all creatures including himself to provide pseudo-vigilance, an aura that needs to remain attached becomes card disadvantage here.

This list seams a bit all over the place in the sense that you don't seam to be fully focused on the combo aspect of Animar, Soul of Elements and you have a lot of spots dedicated to unnecessary cards or just big creatures that don't really help you get to a combo and win.

If you want take a look at my list. I have developed it over the years and it is extremely focused and efficient on a few combos. I think it will help you if your goal is to have this deck focused on a fast speedy combo deck that will win often in multiplayer edh. Here is my List.. Animar Combo Primer

Animar, Soul of Elements with Cloudstone Curio, Deadeye Navigator or Temur Sabertooth, then Palinchron, Great Whale or Peregrine Drake nets you a ton of mana (also Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger/Caged Sun with Palinchron, and morph creatures with Cloudstone Curio)

Temur Ascendancy, Maelstrom Wanderer, Urabrask the Hidden, etc for haste if you need it

There are lots of creatures that destroy noncreature permanents in , lots of disruption creatures in , and lots of creatures that ping in if that's your plan

I have a Tim deck, Tim being our good friend Prodigal Sorcerer. My Tim deck is RUG and currently runs Riku of Two Reflections as the genral but I wan't something that has synergy with tim and his kin. I was thinking Animar, Soul of Elements. He's RUG, he's good, he lessens cost and is good after 3 casts. But in multiplayer, he draws so much hate. None of the 3 other temur commanders draw my eye so, advice?

Hi Deckologist, the same thing happened to me with Sharuum the Hegemon that I played for 5 years, after some time I opted for Animar, Soul of Elements and I can assicure you it isn't ripetitive as it can seem, several mounth after I was continuosly finding new combo/synergies like "wait guys.....YES WE CAN!!!!" nearly all cards does combo with someting. If you want to take a look to mine is on the profile, this is a suggestion from a consumed player of esper to another. Good luck!!

Maelstrom Wanderer, Animar, Soul of Elements, Derevi, Empyrial Tactician, Karador, Ghost Chieftain, and Prossh, Skyraider of Kher all fit your requirements well. They fall into useful color-combos, offer interesting and powerful abilities, have multiple ways to pressure wins, and have some leeway in how you build them.

I do have to note that any decent EDH player will be familiar with these decks. You'll never leave them "scratching their heads." Although neither would Sydri...
