Protection of white and from black
Whenever you cast a creature spell, put a +1/+1 counter on Animar, Soul of Elements.
Creature spells you cast cost 1 less to cast for each +1/+1 counter on Animar.

did people forget about Animar, Soul of Elements
See what THAT does to standard ;)
Cloudstone Curio and morphs easily breaks the deck, as well as some eldrazi, as they can be cast for free off of Animar, Soul of Elements , good ones include Kozilek, Butcher of Truth , Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre , It That Betrays , Artisan of Kozilek , Pathrazer of Ulamog , etc
ive tried running Animar, Soul of Elements in my Maelstrom Wanderer edh deck. he's not reliable unless hes your commander because you might draw him late, and you wont have enough creatures left anyway. one thing that i run is Deadeye Navigator and Great Whale or Palinchron . infinite mana, lets you draw your whole deck with Temur Ascendancy , and Pandemonium or Warstorm Surge for infinite damage. i also run intet as the other 99, combos well with cascade.
Sidisi, Brood Tyrant is really fun in self-mill decks, especially in a deck with Endless Ranks of the Dead . Animar, Soul of Elements is pro black/white, making it hard to get rid of and reducing the costs of creature spells you cast. Kaalia of the Vast is a fun commander for self-explaining reasons (although you are an instant target). Anafenza, the Foremost is a great general against decks that rely on graveyards; and has a very cheap casting cost as well. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is pretty costly to play but gives all your creatures a power boost and undying (as long as they aren't human) Finally, Brimaz, King of Oreskos , although not really used as a commander, could be potentially deadly for his cheap cost and token abilities.
@NoPantsParade - you are absolutely correct in that both of those cards could work nicely in this deck, but since I rarely get to the 10 lands needed to cast Primal Surge or a useful Genesis Wave I didn't put them into the deck. This deck runs its best when chaining together large amounts of creatures hitting the board through Animar, Soul of Elements ability and the draw power of Soul of the Harvest effects.
I appreciate the comment though, thanks!
If it's aggro as in winning with commander damage, these are the best I've seen played:
You can also do a ridiculous fireball deck with Riku of Two Reflections by loading up on land fetch, mana doubling, damage doubling, and red spells that do X damage. I've also seen Momir Vig, Simic Visionary get out of control very quickly.
I'm also willing to bet that Zurgo Helmsmasher will work well, he just seems kinda dull. I haven't seen Zur the Enchanter or Uril, the Miststalker play, but people seem to think they're even better voltron commanders that Bruna, which is saying a lot. There's plenty of aura/enchantment tutor in white, and blue lets you mill yourself to put auras in graveyard. That being said, my Bruna deck has trouble against my gf's Drana deck b/c Drana boosts herself and kills others at the same time (including gods). Her deck is just loaded with kill/forced sac and mana ramp (which black has a surprising amount of). Also, Thassa can be brutal because of all the crazy blue creatures that do stuff on combat damage to player.
