Conduit of Ruin
Creature — Eldrazi
When you cast Conduit of Ruin, you may search your library for a colorless creature card with converted mana cost 7 or greater, reveal it, then shuffle your library and put that card on top of it.
The first creature spell you cast each turn costs less to cast.

Alright, so taking a look at this, I see a few cards that can be immediately cut. Ruin Rat is just bad. Doomfall doesn't work in EDH, Nef-Crop Entangler has better cards, Toil isn't great here unless you're pointing it at yourself, Tresspasser's Curse doesn't help you get big things out, Horror of the Broken Lands is just bad, Carnage Gladiator is kinda meh, Prismatic Lens is weak AF, Kozilek's Pathfinder just doesn't really do anything here outside of being a colorless mana sink (which you don't really have support for) and Desecration Demon will likely never attack.
Nef-Crop Entangler out, Nettle Drone in. Nettle Sentinel is bonkers and I KNOW you have a copy of it somewhere (I legit gave my copy of it to you).
Toil out, Bloodgift Demon in. Not only is Bloodgift a decent beater, but he gives you card draw. Basically a dude version of Phyrexian Arena with a side of hitting opponents too.
Ruin Rat out, literally anything else in. Probably Endbringer, simply because I think you have my copy of it. Use it.
Horror of the Broken Lands out, Conduit of Ruin in. Bad card out, better card in. Tutor + cost reduction is nutty.
Trespasser's Curse out, Combustible Gearhulk in. Not only do you need more dudes, but you need better dudes. Combustible shouldn't be hard to find rn and is very powerful in a deck with Eldrazi.
Carnage Gladiator out, Duplicant in. It's free removal. Just do it.
Kozilek's Predator out, Pestilence Demon in. This Demon can make multiple opponents lose a lot of life very quickly, as well as nuke crappier creatures. It also beats for 7.
Desecration Demon out, Pathrazer of Ulamog in. Self-explanatory.
Rakazeth's Rite out (it's a bit expensive for a tutor), Crypt Ghast in. You'll appreciate the ramp as well as the Extort triggers.
Doomfall out, Hero's Downfall in. I think I have one lying around and Downfall is just better.
Loxodon Warhammer out, Neheb, the Eternal in. Someone'll get it eventually, and he's just baller.
Seer's Lantern out, Sin Prodder in. Yes, I hate Sin Prodder. But goddamn if it isn't fun AF to nug someone for 12 off a blind flip, and synergistic in this deck as well.
Traveler's Amulet out, Hellkite Charger in. You know you want infinite combats with Neheb. Don't deny it.

Cultivator of Blades is a great addition to any thing with elves i would also add Deceiver of Form for some late game fun Conduit of Ruin can help get the afore mentioned Deceiver of Form and From Beyond also helps that if you want more land ramp go for Sylvan Advocate Architect of the Untamed Lifecrafter's Bestiary and any land fetches i would get rid of Narnam Renegade because you have no consistent revolt triggers

I agree with aeons... Find room for 2 Wastes... to deal with things like Ghost Quarter or the aforementioned Path to Exile. The Eldrazi Conscription is a cool card, but can generally be cut, Eldrazi are big enough on their own.
Also agree that you can cut the big 3 down to 1-ofs, due to their recursion and generally hard to get rid of. You could add Conduit of Ruin in their place to help get them.

Ok so after game day I found the weaknesses and strengths of the deck as far as play testing against my local meta.
Round 1 Vs R/G Energy won 2-1
Round 2 vs W/B Zombies 0-2
This was just awful draws and stuck on 2 lands by myself with the opponent curving out each time so it was just brutally quick. I did not trust in the heart of the cards.
Round 3 W/B Zombies 2-0
Round 4 U/G Rashmi/Eldrazi 1-2
Game 3 was close but came down to missing a crucial land drop turn 3. Getting down Thalia, Heretic Cathar a turn early would have made the difference.

well, Eye of Ugin is banned in modern (i used to use it before it was banned) so u cant use it. the Eldrazi Displacer is not colorless so i cant put it in. also i find that i normally have enough mana so i dont need Kozilek's Channeler, and i would prefer to use Conduit of Ruin instead. and for the other cards like Spawnsire of Ulamog is a choice of personal preferance so if u want, u can use those instead. the eldrazi conscription is a great idea, i had not seen that before, thanks for the idea. i think i might switch it out for 2 Artisan of Kozilek, or do you have another sujestion?thanks for the sujestions.

This feels like a really low creature count for an Animar deck, I must say.
Some default inclusions are also absent - cards like Ancestral Statue, which lets you make Animar huge (since you just keep returning and recasting Statue). I think you could add more eldrazi as well, like Conduit of Ruin and Oblivion Sower. Solemn Simulacrum and Duplicant are excellent value-adds too.
