Pikobyte on EDH - Animar, Soul of Elements

2 weeks ago

I think you know well how to pump Animar to lethal commander damage with imperial recruiter. Talking about the man-o-war combo with phyrexian metamorph. If you find space for Deepchannel Mentor you can search it with the last metamorph entering as imperial recruiter, play it and you can swing unblockable for lethal. That’s how my Animar did it. Nice way to take someone out and you only need the recruiter to start it.

Oh, and Earthcraft really lets Animar get out of control. Turning every creature into hasty manadorks.

If you can get your hands on a copy, Imperial Recruiter can win you the game alone in a 1vs1 and is extremely good in multiplayer too. Also Deepchannel Mentor is a nice evasion Card for your commander and others.

If you are looking for unblockable, I added Deepchannel Mentor

Pikobyte on Animar ramp

That is exactly what my deck did. It rarely killed with creatures. Always comboing out and going infinite. Just looked it up, played 54 creatures. Every creature is ramp in Animar. Cards like Hardened Scales get you the counters faster. Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage draw you a ton of cards. Haste enablers like Maelstrom Wanderer allowing you to tap your manadorks while bouncing and replaying them and Purphoros, God of the Forge kills the table. Or throw in a Deepchannel Mentor to make Animar unblockable and swing for 21 commander damage in a single hit.

I would say if you're digging Tetsuko for the turns after your ninjas Ninjutsu, it might just be better to run Deepchannel Mentor. There's only 10 creatures in your current list that do not benefit from Deepchannel, while there's 16 that don't benefit from Tetsuko. Plus there's the added bonus of Deepchannel's CMC being a bit higher to give Yuriko's trigger a better punch when you reveal it.

Interesting deck with the focus on unblockability. Quietus Spike could be really painful with a deck like this. Silent-Blade Oni also seems too good to pass up.

Indigo Faerie doesn't seem that useful apart from the combo with Deepchannel Mentor, and the cost seems pretty high for the effect, so you could take those cards out.

Colorless creatures like artifact creatures and Eldrazi are also very hard to block with Vela's intimidate. I made an Eldrazi Ninja Vela deck, so I can recommend Deepfathom Skulker, Oblivion Sower, Sire of Stagnation, and Distended Mindbender as being quite useful. You can check out that deck for more inspiration.

Yeah, I have some ideas. There are a tons of ways you could do it, I'm just going to list a few. Merfolk is too vast to cover here.

I was going to suggest this card, but now i see it is a merfolk which makes it better: Vorel of the Hull Clade. It is worded strangely, but it effectively doubles the counters on the items listed. This would go well with your commander.

Also consider Bred for the Hunt, Hardened Scales, Inexorable Tide, Death's Presence.

Bow of Nylea and Bident of Thassa would work well with attack and card draw.

Also consider some of these merfolk. Deepchannel Mentor, Fallowsage, Master of the Pearl Trident, Master of Waves, Merfolk Sovereign, Merrow Harbinger, Merrow Reejerey, Silvergill Adept, Silvergill Douser, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Tidebinder Mage, True-Name Nemesis, Wake Thrasher, and Wanderwine Prophets.

You might be right. Thought of Deepchannel Mentor as kind of a finish. And the only creatures that do not profit of this effect are Copperhorn Scout, Deeproot Elite and Forerunner of the Heralds. I think my creatures won't become that huge, Deepchannel Mentor might be an option to win the game with my Overrun spells. I'll test both I think.
