Animar, Soul of Elements Discussion

SynergyBuild on Varolz Hulk

1 week ago

Animar, Soul of Elements is a deck similar to this, always wanting to turn 2 the commander with a turn 1 dork or Lotus Petal, etc. They don't even run crypt/ring because colorless mana isn't necessary. Perhaps I was wrong about the similarities though, I may have misjudged this deck in that way.

SynergyBuild on Varolz Hulk

What do you think of Mox Amber, not the best mox by any means, but with your abundance of dorks to turn 2 a Varolz, dropping this right after makes it a 2 color mox, and can start casting spells pretty reliably by then, acting as, at worst case once Varolz hits, another land. It has worked well for me in my Selvala, Explorer Returned, Animar, Soul of Elements, and Thrasios, Triton Hero/Tymna the Weaver lists, but didn't do well in Najeela, the Blade-Blossom. Always is a card I want to try out in any deck where the commander costs less than or equal to three mana.

mfogle on Colorless Eldrazi EDH

I love the flavor of Eldrazi myself and run them in modern, but really enjoy EDH also. Colorless eldrazi "tribal" is really hard to do in a singleton format. My personal recommendation would to run a different commander. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is awesome and a good card, but I wouldn't run him as the commander. You'll want somebody to help push the deck early on. I'd recommend Animar, Soul of Elements: he's only a 3 drop so you can get him out much earlier, plus he can dramatically reduce the cost of your creatures, especially if your running pure colorless. Being blue/red/green can also open you up to some good tech cards to help out or allow you to run the smaller devoid colored eldrazi if you feel inclined.

goblinguiderevealpls on You thought you could combo? Think again thot!

2 weeks ago

Vryn Wingmare, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Thorn of Amethyst all should be in here, they directly compliment her ability and halt combo before she was printed

Damping Sphere is another combo hoser staple, and Torpor Orb stops any creature deck in its tracks, sure it hurts your 8 creatures but its not like you usually get more than 1 etb from each creature per game anyways

point is, you're gonna need a lot more taxing and combo hose cards than just lavinia to truly stop combo, especially since most combo decks come with counterspells and protection. and you currently have almost nothing to stop popular combo decks like Animar, Soul of Elements, Prossh, Skyraider of Kher, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Brago, King Eternal, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, i would consider more stax artifacts and tax cards like Sphere of Resistance, Trinisphere and Static Orb if you truly want to stop combo, because combo decks are stacked with answers, removal, protection and tutors for all 3

@Last_Laugh Thanks for the suggestion, I like the Heroic Intervention and Spellseeker add but I am not sure about the Maelstrom Wanderer pick up? The fact that cascade doesn't cast the creature so Animar, Soul of Elements doesn't get the counters worries me. Then again I am not sure if those counters are something that I should worry about.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help. Interesting deck, haven't seen Horde of Notions as a Commander before.

Coward_Token on Ravnica Allegiance: Spoilers and Speculation

1 month ago

Don't forget to include the mechanics article in the OP, esp. since it's going to be continually updated.

Someone else beat me to pointing out neo-Lavinia's synergy with some group hug cards in EDH: http://tappedout.net/mtg-forum/commander-deck-help/looking-for-more-cards-like-knowledge-pool-ravnica-allegiance-spoilers/

The Simic continue to not disappoint with their Ascendancy; alt win cons that actually do something are always neat, and this one is damn cheap to boot. Animar, Soul of Elements,Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca & Atraxa, Praetors' Voice can all trigger growth at a fast rate. (Note that the card has a "one or more" rider, so e.g. Ezuri, Claw of Progress won't be quite as explosive as he could be.)

Animar, Soul of Elements and Ancestral Statue have a punishing exile combo with Thought Harvester so long as Animar has over 4 counters!
