Animar, Soul of Elements Discussion

Welcome to the world of EDH brews and may your journey be long and creative !!

I really like your iteration of Kumena. In the theme of attacks and untapping Id suggest Sword of Feast and Famine (maybe instead of Sword of Light and Shadow, but it is really meta dependent, whether you want to replace it or add it by taking out something else), as you can virtually have Kumena almost always unblockable (with his ability), guaranteeing you an untap!Another thing, I noticed you removed Beast Within. Such choice also depends a lot on your play group, so obviously you know best, but I DO have to stress that it is one of the most powerful removal spells in EDH. It trades any PERMANENT (super important keyword in a word of Blood Moons, opposing Vedalken Orrery, Gaea's Cradles, and typical black/white protection like Animar, Soul of Elements) for just a 3/3. All in all, keep in mind how powerful it is as a card.

Happy brewing!

I've decided to build a new commander deck and I'm trying to narrow down my choices to the most competitive that's not over $200. My choices are Animar, Soul of Elements, Athreos, God of Passage, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Planeswalker. Does not have Jace, the Mind Sculptor or Karn Liberated), Breya, Etherium Shaper, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord, Kaalia of the Vast, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Ramos, Dragon Engine , or The Mimeoplasm. Keep in mind that even though I do like competitive I don't want a deck thats no fun to play. If you can't narrow it down to one card you can just list top 3.

Maybe Roil Elemental if that's not too much blue mana to be practical

Animar, Soul of Elements might also be good.

Forgotten Ancient is another powerful elemental

Doesnt that weaken most top tier decks. Like General Tazri or Animar, Soul of Elements or Captain Sisay. Just a thought.

I'll be honest most of your so called Tier 1 Commanders are realistically at best 1.5/2 I'd say the only true tier 1 commanders are Animar, Soul of Elements , Arcum Dagsson , Karador, Ghost Chieftain , Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Zur the Enchanter . It seems a lot of the Tier 1 commanders are cards that are incredible as part of the 99, but actually in the command seat they aren't that impressive, Purphorous, God of The Forge is great and strong in casual, put him up against any T2 or better deck he will lose. The only other two that a tier 1 argument could really be made for is Edric, Spymaster of Trest and Narset, Enlightened Master but personally tier 1.5 in my opinion.

So I have been working on a GAAIV list now for I can't tell you how long. For some reason I cannot settle on a list that seems "good enough" for me. I initially thought about going the Enchantress route but I have done that before and it didn't end well for me. Then I went for a mostly Counterspell style build. That didn't work either. Currently I am in the middle of the two with more Artifacts than Enchantments. But it doesn't feel right still and I struggle to keep the board under control and have only won once. My meta is reasonably competitive with the only rule of there being no Infinite Combos. i.e. Palinchron and Navigator and the like.

The Commanders in our group currently include: Daretti, Scrap Savant, The Scarab God, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Ramos, Dragon Engine, Chainer, Dementia Master, Phenax, God of Deception, Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Animar, Soul of Elements, The Locust God, Breya, Etherium Shaper, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Karlov of the Ghost Council, and Edgar Markov.

This is my work in progress deck. Please help.

@ KumaLKS There was a point where I had every huge beater in the deck, what it comes down to is you're typically casting Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Artisan of Kozilek or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth for the on cast effects and not to use as beaters. Don't get me wrong, the cards are great to destroy a board state, however, when you're dropping these bombs - you're most likely already in a win condition.

These are especially nice when you have 11+ counters on Animar, Soul of Elements and Cloudstone Curio out.
