Animar, Soul of Elements Discussion

erabel on Khans of Tarkir SDCC 2014

Since everyone's ignoring Kravian's question, I might as well answer it. Kravian, remember, though, even though the question is kinda relevant to the discussion, it's still a rules question, so it goes in the Q&A.

From the Comprehensive Rules:

702.36a Morph is a static ability... "Morph [cost]" means "You may cast this card as a 2/2 face-down creature, with no text, no name, no subtypes, no expansion symbol, and no mana cost by paying 3 rather than paying its mana cost." (Emphasis added)

Let's assume Animar, Soul of Elements has 3 counters on it. To figure out how much it costs to cast something, the formula is (Mana Cost or Alternate Cost) + (Additional Cost) - (Cost Reductions). Morph is an alternate cost of 3 colorless mana, and Animar reduces creature casting costs by 3 colorless mana, so you'd get (3) + (0) - (3) = 0 mana to cast.

Note that Animar doesn't affect the mana requirements to "un-morph" a creature, just to cast it.

I actually really like the card. In fact, I think I suggested it on your Phyrexia-themed build. It's better in my meta than Luminate Primordial because one of my main opponents runs Animar, Soul of Elements . I did recently obtain a foil Ingester, the problem is finding a spot for it since Duplicant does pretty much the same thing for one mana less.

I love Domri Rade , he's in my Animar, Soul of Elements deck. I'd trade for those two cards if the opportunity arose

I wanted to reference hydras with the name, and XXX is a good eye-catcher ;D

Rhadamanthus on Rhystic Study Vs. Animar, Soul ...

You don't really need a "ruling" or a quotation from the CR, because the cards do what they say, no more and no less. Your thoughts about the interaction are correct. Rhystic Study doesn't increase the cost of anything, it just has a triggered ability that asks for some mana when a spell is cast. Animar, Soul of Elements only works on creature spells, not abilities.

Compare the text of Rhystic Study to a card like Sphere of Resistance for a counter-example of something that actually does increase the cost to cast a spell, and that Animar could actually interact with. Price
