Containment Priest Discussion
2 days ago
Ixalan has been a mixed bag for Animar. Tinashe is the only card that the set offers Animar, but it's mediocre at best. The set also came with Rampaging Ferocidon, which may force Animar to play more carefully if it is on the table but probably won't see much play in competitive circles so it's not something Animar will likely have to build around.
The real boon that Ixalan offers Animar is in how Ashes of the Abhorrent may affect the meta. Ashes of the Abhorrent stalls Hermit Druid + Dread Return based combo decks, which are frequently faster at comboing off than Animar is. It also hampers Storm decks that are looking to go off with Yawgmoth's Will. Boonweaver combo decks may look to splash it since it doesn't interfere with their main reanimation plan, and it may also find a spot in dedicated Hate Bear or Zur decks. The more the card sees play, the more hospitable the meta gets for Animar.
Now maybe WotC could print a couple more cEDH worthy Containment Priest style effects to help keep Flash Hulk decks in check.

Have you ever been hit with a Containment Priest while trying to combo off? Do you find you have enough creature removal to deal with such a disruption? Sweet deck, definite +1!

I disagree with that sentiment. As a brewer, I enjoy creating new and viable decks to try to win in competitive pods. As Hotcake mentioned, a lot of new cards means there's more room for brewing. But I don't think the meta is shifting that much. You have Jeleva and Zur still consistently there from before partners, you have numerous iterations of Thrasios/Tymna but mostly Hulk variants, Gitrog because it's very hard to interact with and dodges most stax pieces, Tana/Tymna because it can accrue enough card advantage to win games through its own stax pieces. Tazri is seeing more play in part cuz it's a fast and resilient combo deck that gets to play Containment Priest, which hurts Hulk decks, and Teferi, which hasn't really gotten any better or worse in the past few months.
Partners, Paradox Engine and Dramatic Reversal created big shifts in the format, particularly in light of Thrasios being an inf mana sink, and with any commander with a tap ability.

Rolling Back the Deserts :(
I'm keeping just a few with the most overt Dune imagery, but in the end, the desert experiment hurt the 3-color mana base too much for my liking.

I dont think this deck will function anything like you intend
Oloro is banned in 1v1 commander, and your opponents will do the opposite of ignoring you with him in the command zone, in fact most oloro control games i've played you are almost always the archenemy, oloro is NOT a deck to ignore and if you want people to ignore you you should consider a commander that isnt banned and infamous, such as a group hug one like Zedruu the Greathearted
Between playing oloro and controlling everyones board, being ignored is the last thing on opponents mind, so you should ve playing as an archenemy rather than an invisible player, oloro is one of the farthest commanders from invisible lol :/
That said, this looks nearly identical to my oloro stax listExcept that your lack of creatures is disturbing, i understand its not a creature heavy deck but nevertheless things like Dark Confidant, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip Snapcaster Mage, Ethersworn Canonist, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Reflector Mage Containment Priest and Aven Mindcensor contribute to the game plan via control, card draw and recursion while providing you with chump blockers to protect against any creatures that survive board wipes
