RumAndCoke on Atraxa, Angel of Proof

I have a few suggestions that I think would help speed this deck up and make it even deadlier than it already is.

Cards I think you could live without:

My first suggestion is to add 4 or 5 more land. 31 land is very low, especially for a four color build, and missing land drops will hinder your game plan significantly.

Land suggestions:

Second suggestion is to consider more mana ramp. Having great ramp is essential to a quick, efficient start. Starting off slow will usually get you killed.

Ramp suggestions:

Third suggestion is cards I like for this theme. Just a few badass toys for your deck to mess around with.

Fun card suggestions:

Coiling Oracle could change Courser of Kruphix, for some instant gratification?

( sorry for spamming your wall with comments... i just really like this deck )

Let me give you some advise based on what I see in your list. Did you consider these cards:

If I can be of any help on here, just give me a headsup on my wall. I am always willing to help people with their commander decks.

Edit One (04/14/2017):

  • -1x Coiling Oracle, +1x Frantic Search; Coiling Oracle felt too low impact during as stages of the game, and usually just mean "ETB: Draw a card". Frantic Search is a "free" card, and it can trigger dredge rather easily.

  • -1x Fact or Fiction, +1x Jace's Archivist; Four mana is a little much for a none-creature in this deck that does not immediately impact the board. Plus, this card leaves a large decision to the target opponent, which can screw us up. Jace's Archivist can mess with the hands of my enemies while filling ours out rather quickly, while also filling the graveyard with some of the bigger reanimator targets in the deck.

  • -1x Kessig Cagebreakers, +1x Sire of Stagnation; Kessig Cagebreakers never really did anything of value. If Sidisi was doing her job correctly, then I would not need a bunch of wolves in play. Sire of Stagnation is a powerful reanimation target, and can quickly get me to my infinites. Plus, that name is awesome.

  • -1x Golgari Charm, +1x Murderous Cut; I already have Reclamation Sage and Sultai Charm to deal with individual artifacts or enchantments. The other two modes are rarely of use to me, as I want my creatures to die, but -1/-1 will rarely accomplish much. I can cast Murderous Cut for and a few lands in my graveyard. At instant speed. Seems pretty good.

  • -1x Catacomb Sifter, +1x Putrefy; Versatility is king, and Catacomb Sifter was not very impactful during my play. Putrefy is another piece of removal, and there's no such thing as too much removal.

Coiling Oracle and Mystic Snake are probably my favourite snakes. Hooded Hydra is probably better than anything else in a higher slot here. Mold Adder might be sideboardable, Sakura-Tribe Scout or similar if you look for land acceleration tools. I love you getting your snakes shoes, but you might have gone a little overboard- some light power, toughness or survivability boosts would be welcome here- Slagwurm Armor is pretty close to theme and will help with those end of combat triggers.

need more none creature removal, run Acidic Slime 1 or 2 of if its modern legal and Venser, Shaper Savant 4 non-creature removal, also a few counterspells at least side board, also stop playing Sylvan Ranger, you only have 3 basics, also run a few more of the pain lands if you can for the colorless mana, also you could try using a Deadeye Navigator, other good cards are Vendilion Clique, Eternal Witness, and Kitchen Finks, also i'd put 4 Wall of Omens in the side board to sideboard in, in place of Coiling Oracle when running against aggro decks, also Supreme Verdict and Sphinx's revalation could be good sideboard cards

This type of deck was actually one of my first Modern decks ever. If you're looking at casual/semi-competitive play, this deck can be pretty powerful. You're already playing some of the best cards in this archetype like Thragtusk, Restoration Angel and Coiling Oracle. This deck tends to struggle against aggressive decks, though, so here's a few good cards you might consider adding that are generally strong.

Wall of Omens draws you a card and gums up the ground in the early game.

Blade Splicer gives you two bodies with a total of 4 power and can get out of hand quick with some blink effects.

Venser, the Sojourner is also a fantastic win condition and can really grind your opponents out. It also wins through stalemates. I played as many as 3 at one point with the deck. Many times you can protect him in the air and on the ground and ultimate, which really closes out the game.

Good luck! :)

I personally haven't built an Animar deck yet but I would try to go for an aggro/combo deck. As a general idea I would say you only need: artifact/enchantment removal that are NOT implemented on a creature (because of Humility and Torpor Orb for example), a good amount of spells that prevent opponent's spells in your turn (Dosan the Falling Leaf, City of Solitude, Leyline of Lifeforce, Vexing Shusher and maybe the new prowling serpopard from Amonkhet), a method to get counters on animar very fast, massive card draw and tutors, (mostly) colorless big beaters. Everything that doesn't fall into one of these categories can be considered for cutting imo.

Coiling Oracle, Wall of Blossoms would be cool for card draw upon entering, even better with cloudstone curio and aluren (which would be an infinite Loop then, drawing your whole deck if you want). On the other Hand the gearhulk, nyela, urzas incubator...well, cards like these don't do much and they are slowing down your deck. I would also reconsider using those mana makers that cost 2 mana to play - too slow imo. Rather use artifacts, such as Chrome Mox, Mox Diamond, Lotus Petal, Mana Crypt...with a lot of colourless creatures also Mana Vault and Grim Monolith with Voltaic Key (Trinket Mage to search for it and other useful stuff), Mox Opal is also possible then. the great aspect is they don't have summoning sickness and you can get your eldrazi titans out, even if your animar doesn't survive Long enough. you could indeed remove quite a few of your slower mana creatures in exchange and speed up your deck alot.
