Have you thought about a card to put Pathrazer on the top of your deck deliberately?

For a budget, maybe splashing blue would do it, with Riverwise Augur?

The best bet though might be Cream of the Crop.

Alternatively, Brutalizer Exarch, Silhana Wayfinder, or Primal Command can all do it.

Spook9MM on Stacked abilities, or separate?

With Momir Vig, Simic Visionary in play, I cast a Brutalizer Exarch . Will their abilities stack, allowing to search for 2 creatures, shuffling, then placing them both on top of my library? Or do they occur separately, so in essence I'm really only putting 1 on top?

Congregation at Dawn is THE card for topdeck manipulation in Nya creature decks. Cream of the Crop , Sensei's Divining Top and Mirri's Guile will allow you to reorder the top of your deck. Worldly Tutor , Sylvan Tutor , Mwonvuli Beast Tracker , Hua Tuo, Honored Physician , and Brutalizer Exarch tutor to the top of your deck.

One good interaction with Atla's ability are tutors that put creatures on the top of your library. If your budget allows it, I'd suggest Brutalizer Exarch , Conduit of Ruin , Sylvan Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Congregation at Dawn , Forerunner of the Empire (in case you run dinos), Mwonvuli Beast Tracker (situational). Pick and choose the ones that fit your deck better, if any.

Eurgiga on Moon art cards for Princess ...

A few I haven't seen yet:

Couple tips when looking for moons: Both actual moons and moon symbols count, so keep an eye out for moons on things like books, texts, and manufactured things in the art. There is no limit on how small they can be, though it's obvious it has to be large enough to make out. Some cards have very small, very sneaky moons hidden in them this way.

I changed, turned 1 of 3 Acidic Slime into 2 Slimes, and 2 Brutalizer Exarch , instead of 1 of them.

My reasoning was that with 3, 5 cmc slimes, that that was affecting my turns 1,2 land destruction draws. That if I went with 2 Acidic Slimes, combined with 2 5 cmc Primal Command , 2, 5 cmc Incendiary Command , and 1, 5 cmc Goblin Dark-Dwellers , that I would still have 7, 5 cmc cards that would likely destroy lands, turns 3,4,5,6,7, affecting my opening hand, turns 1,2 draws less, by having a less chance of a 5 cmc in opening hand, turns 1,2, thus increasing odds that get a 2,3,4 cmc land destruction card for use on turns 1,2,3.

And I wouldnt be losing a land destruction card thru the change, as Brutalizer Exarch also destroys land. And going from 12 artifact destroyers down to 11, is still ok, plenty of cards to use Liquimetal Coating to turn lands, etc into artifacts, and destroy them.

Also changing the Slime into 1 more Brutalizer Exarch, also makes it so that have 4 search for creature cards as a 2 Primal Commands, an 2 Brutalizer Exarchs, for 4 search for creature cards as a collective 4 of

So the change helps destroy lands on, by turns 1,2, even more often, while still getting the 5 cmc land destroyers out by, on turns 3,4,5,6,7, while still being able to use Liquid Metal Coating quite often to destroy stuff, while being better able to search for creatures.

I playtested A LOT of 20 turn sample hands to test this all out, and the deck seems to work even better after this change.

So the change makes logical sense, and the playtesting seems to confirm the logic.

PookandPie on Animarvelous 2

Linked here from the Facebook group and as this comment got longer, I figured I'd leave it here for easier parsing than on Facebook itself.

Okay, so taking a look at this, I notice one thing right off the bat: Your deck only has 7 or so ramp spells in it (I may have missed a couple).

Animar turns top decks into fuel if they're creatures, so it's the one time I would recommend not running mana rocks. I mean, you still can, but you should run a decent assortment of dorks that let you land Animar turn 2. You currently only run Birds of Paradise.

Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , Fyndhorn Elves , etc., would be better than your mana rocks. I dropped Sol Ring entirely because it doesn't help Animar "go off" so to speak, since I always need colored, not colorless, mana.

After the 1 drops, you have some good 2 drop acceleration like Sakura-Tribe Elder , Wall of Roots , and so on. I especially like Wall of Roots because it can be used the same turn its cast.

Burnished Hart could easily be removed for one of the above- it takes 6 mana to get 1 land. Sure, you can play it for free, but the activation cost is still an issue. Rishkar, Peema Renegade (2 * +1/+1 counters on Animar for casting her, plus turn another thing into a dork is niiiiiice), etc., would be more beneficial for the mana spent and better utility overall.

Warstorm Surge, Primeval Bounty, etc., aren't necessary. Surge has both Purph and Ballista which outperform it during the combo with Ancestral Statue- 3 payload is a bit much since the deck is predicated on you obtaining 1 card (so you're running 3:1 payloads to combo pieces that let those payloads outright win). Animar just doesn't want to pay full retail cost for that effect when Ballista is free and Purph is R.

Vedalken Orrery is largely a do-nothing card. Casting at instant speed is fun but Animar doesn't have to- something that just outright makes your stuff uncounterable would be a better use of mana than Orrery if playing around counters, and if playing Orrery to be cute... Animar isn't cute. You can combo quick and dirty through things like Dosan the Falling Leaf and Gaea's Herald.

The Swords are oddly placed. 5 mana to get a limited effect isn't great when your Commander lends himself better to enabling sheninagans with Prime Speaker Vannifar , Tishana, Voice of Thunder , Brutalizer Exarch , Generous Patron , Imperial Recruiter , Beast Whisperer (you run Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest- Whisperer is a straight upgrade to one of those, but I run all 3), Wall of Blossoms , etc.. Rhystic Study wouldn't be out of place either. Most of the above when combined with Animar and Temur Sabertooth/Cloudstone Curio make a phenomenal draw engine to get you what you need.

So, to summarize everything up:

Cut:

1x Elixir of Immortality 1x Gruul Signet 1x Izzet Signet 1x Sol Ring 1x Sword of Feast and Famine 1x Sword of Fire and Ice 1x Sword of the Animist 1x Vedalken Orrery 1x Primeval Bounty 1x Warstorm Surge 1x Burnished Hart

Add:

1x Llanowar Elves 1x Elvish Mystic 1x Fyndhorn Elves 1x Sakura-Tribe Elder 1x Wall of Roots 1x Rishkar, Peema Renegade 1x Beast Whisperer 1x Imperial Recruiter (or some other tutor, they help) 1x Rhystic Study or some other draw source 1x Vannifar, Tishana, some other draw source.

If you have issues with your spells getting countered, cut something for Gaea's Herald or Dosan the Falling Leaf , or both. You could probably cut 1 land and a fatty like Utvara Hellkite who take way too long to do anything on their own in order to fit these in.

There are a few random improvements that can be made, like changing Plaxcaster Frogling to Spellskite , or swapping Hoard-Smelter for Reclamation Sage , but that can be saved for another time. More ramp and more draw engines will definitely help more than anything else. I even run Trophy Mage to get Cloudstone Curio, but that's a jank play. Spellseeker to get Weird Harvest to get Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista in the same turn is where it's at lol.

Anyway, this was a long, loooong comment, but I hope it helps you out, man.
