Slate of Ancestry Great Oak Guardian Phytoburst Weird Harvest Genesis Wave Planar Bridge these are some of the payout cards I've been running, and phytoburst has no reason not to be in brostorm lists because it has a giant boost, would cut for immense. Planar bridge seems dumb, but it isn't that hard to make 14 mana and paradox engine into slate is gg no re. I personally like birthing pod as well. Bloom tender for Beastcaller Savant ? Vitalize and friends? Also one forest for Tranquil Thicket g to draw is pretty good. All my opinion but my deck has a pretty consistent turn 3 win threat just from the mass of extra tutors and hand advantage I run, and I've found that trying to run too many answers is a bad thing, since mono g lends itself to all in fast combo. I personally just run the counter spell counters, the destroy artifact creatures, and Mana Web , but that is more for if your meta is exceptionally blue heavy, though it still makes opponents chose between stopping you and advancing their own plan instead of both. Hope this helps

Cloudstone Curio turns any combination of 2 morph creatures, colorless eldrazi, Cloud of Faeries / Peregrine Drake / Stadium Vendors type etb's, and Beastcaller Savant (and any mana dork you give haste) into infinite combos with Cloudstone.

Add Purphoros, God of the Forge / Walking Ballista for lethal damage, Beast Whisperer etc. for infinite draw, and all give Animar infinite counters.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

I have a few suggestions.

Weird Harvest is much more cost effective here than Tooth and Nail. Search up Ancestral Statue and Purporos currently for 4 mana then combo off with a 5th mana. The preferred finisher here is Walking Ballista so you only need 4 mana (both only need 3x counters on Animar). Also Spellseeker as a 2nd chance to get this combo going.

More mana untap etb's. Great Whale is also worth running in addition to the 2 in your maybeboard and Palinchron. Stadium Vendors also accomplishes the same thing.

Beastcaller Savant goes infinite in Cloudstone combos due to the haste. Haste also turns any other mana dorks into Cloudstone combo pieces, consider Urabrask the Hidden and Ogre Battledriver in addition to Wanderer.

Suggested cuts:

Ambuscade Shaman and Primal Forcemage : only works with hasty creatures.

Anowon, the Ruin Sage : slow and introduces a different tribal theme- feels out of place, especially to vorthos weirdos like me. Can't have a vampire card in a shaman deck, man!

Beastcaller Savant , Bloodline Shaman , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , and more or less all of your planeswalkers: dependent on the number of creatures in your deck and even without the cut cards has a <50% chance to draw you a card.

Dragon's Herald and Hellkite Overlord seems like an odd package.

Fauna Shaman and Underrealm Lich : you have no reason to stock your graveyard and very few things that get things back from the graveyard.

Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest - also Door of Destinies : so many people put him in aristocrat decks, it confuses me! Do you want your creatures to die or not??

Mindclaw Shaman : for you to get any real value out of him, you need to be casting an instant or sorcery that costs at least 4 mana. Decide depending on your meta whether that's consistently feasible.

Stoneshaker Shaman : how much instant interaction is there in your meta? If the answer is less than ALL OF IT, this card is bad.

Reach of Branches feels like bulk here. This card belongs in an Azusa, Lost but Seeking deck.

And if you do end up making a U/G version, you gotta include Beastcaller Savant

Welcome to EDH. Before I begin giving you suggestions about this deck I just wanted to let you know a little about the EDH format.1) EDH decks usually have about 36+ lands and some additional mana sources. I see you are running Cultivate and Kodama's Reach as well as a few artifact mana sources, but you will probably need to up your land count. 2) Most EDH decks that use their commander use Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots as ways to protect it and to give it haste so it doesn't just dies every time you cast it.

For mana sources Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are great in your deck.

You can add Poison-Tip Archer to the group of cards that do damage when a creature dies.

Viscera Seer is a great sac outlet.

Skullclamp is a great source of card draw, especially in this style of deck.

Since you are making tokens... Ezuri's Predation and Sprout Swarm might be fun. Primal Vigor is another Doubling Season type of effect. My personal favorite in token decks is Eldrazi Monument

As for cuts to make, to make room for 12+ lands you have some tough choices to make (more cuts if you make any changes). Here are my thoughts and reasons:

Atarka, World Render I know your general is a dragon, but not really many other things in your deck are, so this might be a bit of a win-more card.

Beastcaller Savant you can get better acceleration somewhere else 1/1 creatures don't stick around long.

Burning-Tree Emissary 2/2s get outclassed quick in EDH and you aren't trying to storm.

Goblin Bushwhacker one time effect, then not much. This wants to be a Craterhoof Behemoth or at least an End-Raze Forerunners .

Kalonian Behemoth big creatures are big, but not sure it does much in your deck. Gets some Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots and build your own.

Phage the Untouchable a great creature and a lot of fun, but probably better in another deck.

Riftsweeper I don't think this works the way you think it does.

Ulvenwald Hydra and Zendikar Incarnate , these are better served in a lands deck

Autumn's Veil situational based on your groups meta.

Tainted Strike you better make sure to kill them with the only poison you are running

Titanic Growth +4/+4 might be nice in some cases, but I'm sure it is worth the slot, most things that are trying to kill your creature will probably still kill them after the pump.

Explore up the land count to make this matter.

Mana Cylix run better fixing so you don't need to filter your mana.

Hope this helps. I like your take on Prosh with tokens looks like a lot of fun.

Biggest thing you need to switch here is your ramp. Kodama's Reach type ramp and mana rocks are not the way to go here. Replace them with cards like Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wood Elves , Beastcaller Savant , Birds of Paradise , Bloom Tender , Rattleclaw Mystic , Somberwald Sage , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , and/or Selvala, Heart of the Wilds .

Next is card draw. Beast Whisperer , Soul of the Harvest , Primordial Sage , and Glimpse of Nature are really good draw effects here. I'd also make room for Vizier of the Menagerie for his pseudo draw and mana fixing.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's focused more on bounce and combo but it should still help with creature versions of different effects. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

I love Animar... it's a weird relationship. I have several suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category. I'd suggest dropping several of your non-creature spells to find room for similar abilities on legs.

Card Draw: Primordial Sage , Tishana, Voice of Thunder , and Glimpse of Nature if it's in your budget.

Ramp: Sakura-Tribe Elder , Somberwald Sage , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , and Rishkar, Peema Renegade . Beastcaller Savant also works like any morph/eldrazi for Cloudstone combos. Bloom Tender is amazing if you can afford one.

Counter Doubling: Pir, Imaginative Rascal .

Turn 2 Animar: Wild Cantor and Exploration .

Haste Enablers: Ogre Battledriver and Urabrask the Hidden . Turns all your mana dorks into Cloudstone combo pieces and everything else into immediate threats.
