Animar, Soul of Elements Discussion

NarejED on Which Commander is the most ...

17 hours ago

My favorite commander to play would have to be Animar, Soul of Elements. He's fun, competitive, and he enables a lot of random little zany combos like Cloudstone Curio + Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre + any other free creature spell. He can also consistently win on turn three if you decide to play Imperial Animar (combo).

The deck is expensive for me at the moment as it is and to had more non-basic is too much as for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief She unfortunately did not make the cut due to my play style which if you guess you get a virtual rainbow cake.

Storm525 yes Animar, Soul of Elements is banned and as for the are normal play it would not play with the restrictions but my play group are getting bored of those type of games

The deck I played in those games was Slaughter? I was only brewing

My boyfriend played Daretti, Scrap Combo

Another friend played Bruna, Light of Alabaster deck

So it is getting boring

@TheBawzzett: So Animar, Soul of Elements is just straight up banned as a commander in your playgroup?

My playgroup takes the opposite approach, let the meta get completely out of hand with BS like that, then see how it spirals out of control when you pit the craziest strategies against eachother lol. We once had to resolve a stack of over 30 spells and triggers! It was a good time :)

A buyout? I mean, I don't know of any competitive Modern or Legacy decks that utilize Curio. It is a key combo piece in EDH decks, though. I use it in my Animar, Soul of Elements build; quite glad I picked it up for $5.00 a few months ago.

NarejED on EDH Generals by Tier

Not bad. There are definitely a few mistakes though. I'll just look at the top tier for now.

Jhoira of the Ghitu Is nowhere close to tier 1. By the time her spells start resolving, the game is already over. She consistently loses to the true top-tier generals (Zur, Narset, Animar, Mimeoplasm, Azami, etc.) The same is true for Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Vendilion Clique, Uril, the Miststalker, Prime Speaker Zegana, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Sydri, Galvanic Genius and Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur. All of those are solid 2 and 3 tier general,s but none of them can hold their own in a fair fight against true tier 1 generals. Oloro, Ageless Ascetic is borderline. His control-heavy strategy tends to rely too much on alternate win conditions like Felidar Sovereign that are easily overcome by faster decks.

Animar, Soul of Elements is tier 1. Imperial Animar wins consistently by turn five with the potential to win on turn two unless stalled by extreme control.

Teferi, Temporal Archmage is also tier 1. He plays a heavy control deck with stax elements like Stasis to keep opponents locked down while his -1 keeps his field open.

Riku of Two Reflections also seems to have mistakenly been placed on the wrong tier. His threat spawning ability is absolutely terrifying and can completely overwhelm opponents in 5 turns.

And finally, Momir Vig, Simic Visionary rounds out the commanders that need to be bumped up. His ability allows for absurd tutor and draw effects that can easily allow his deck to combo out turn 4.

Hope these suggestions helped!

Just letting you know that it isn't a Deadeye Navigator combo, it is an Animar, Soul of Elements + Palinchron combo ;)

DuNkin84 on Skullbriar Duel Commander

I have an duel skullbriar deck. It is nice but it won't play very well against control deck or extremely aggro deck. For example: Tasigur, the Golden Fang removes him once with 1 or 2 counters and it will never see the battlefield again. Animar, Soul of Elements will beat skullbriar so fast that you can't even see him coming...aaaand it has pro black.

Skull is nice, but not tier.
