Last_Laugh on cEDH Animar, Soul of Elements

I don't mean to sound critical but cEDH Animar lists have an avg. cmc that's half of yours and I'm not exaggerating in the slightest.

Competitive Animar lists are trying to combo in 1 of 2 ways and typically win by turn 3-5.

1: Weird Harvest looking up Walking Ballista and Ancestral Statue for the win. This one is seen consistently in competitive Animar.

2: In addition to the Weird Harvest combo it typically runs either Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combos OR Cloudstone Curio infinite etb's.

The rest of the deck is entirely cantrips, land untappers, T2 Animar options, card draw, tutors, and a few ways to protect your winning turn and Animar. The deck has hardly any threat presence from its creatures outside of combo potential.

Hi TypicalTimmy, I really like this deck.

The Cloudstone Curio 's ETB triggers when a Non-Artifact hits the field, so do you really need 2 0 Costs to go off? You really need only one of those + Curio + Oketra, no?

As the Ornithopter or Memnite don't trigger the Curio, but they do trigger Oketra for the tokens, which in turn bounce the 0 CMC creature.

Marwyn is my favourite EDH deck and has been since she took over the commander spot from Ezuri. You can check out my Marwyn deck here: Marwyn EDH.

Cards i enjoy that you dont run are primarily:
Berserk doubles her mana gen and you dont need to sac if you dont attack. Also nice to play on other players greatures when they attack someone else than you.
Beast Whisperer , Primordial Sage , Soul of the Harvest and Guardian Project all helps you refill your hand. Important pieces for "snowballing".
Cloudstone Curio . With 2x cmc1 elfs you can add counters on Marwyn for only one mana. It also creates many "accidental" combos.
Staff of Domination and Umbral Mantle generates infinite mana with Marwyn.

KayneMarco Hello and thanks for the sugestion!

Conjurer's Closet is an excellent card that fits very well on Yarok decks ... I didn't choose it for this one because the strategy goes through lands and lots of interactions with lands ... For this purpose I chose Cloudstone Curio which interacts with nonartifacts permanents ... Thanks for the comment!

Defcon1_ on Chulane’s Tale of the Instant Win

I'm in the early stages of a landfall/creature ETB combo build. There's a nice combo, which would actually work in any Blue/Green deck, but given Chulane's penchant for ETB combos, I feel it's worth mentioning. You'll need a bounce-land in hand (another reason for running this in a 3-colour deck, as you get access to two additional bounce-lands), and it can theoretically win on T3:

Turn 1: Land, Altar of the Brood / Hedron Crab OR Sakura-Tribe Scout / Skyshroud Ranger

Turn 2: Land, Whichever of Altar/Crab OR Sak/Sky you didn't play T1, OR Llanowar Scout (if you didn't play Sak/Sky T1)

Turn 3: Land, Retreat to Coralhelm

1) tap Sakura/Skyshroud/Llanowar to put down bounce-land

2) target bounce-land with its own ability, target Sak/Sky/Llan with Coralhelm untap

3) bounce-land returns to hand, Sak/Sky/Llan untap

4) go back to 1), with Altar/Crab milling your opponent(s) every time the land enters

There's a good level of redundancy for the combo pieces, which are all CMC 3 or less. There's a similar build using Arboreal Grazer , Cloudstone Curio , Lotus Cobra / Amulet of Vigor , and Altar/Crab, which does not require a bounce-land, and would work in any green deck:

Turn 1: Land, Grazer - put a land into play tapped

Turn 2: Land, Cloudstone

Turn 3: Cobra/Amulet, Land (bounce a tapped land with Cloudstone), Altar/Crab, Other CMC 2 or less creature (if you didn't play Cobra or Crab)

1) bounce Grazer from Cobra/Crab/Other entering with Cloudstone, recast Grazer

2) Grazer enters, bounces itself with Cloudstone, put down a land from Grazer etb, bounce a tapped land with Cloudstone

3) Altar/Crab mills opponent(s), use mana from Cobra's landfall OR from the land you put down (if untapped by Amulet) to recast the Grazer, go to 2).

Both combos require 4 pieces excluding (basic) lands, and rely on a unique 3-drop. However, the latter uses cards which, in my opinion, synergise better with Chulane by default. Plus the artifacts can be tutored for with Trinket Mage and Trophy Mage . That said, the first combo is significantly cheaper monetarily since you don't need Cloudstone or Cobra/Amulet.

Hope my ramblings help inspire something, cheers.

I have been having a blast with mono colored decks. but I don't have a green one. this is a great way to research one.

The deck looks flawless, So i'm just going to throw out an idea. with the commander and a decent amount of elves, I would suggest elf mom Marwyn, the Nurturer ... with Umbral Mantle you can make a huge creature and tap for allot of and can even abuse it with Cloudstone Curio

+1 from me!!!
