Dream Stalker Discussion

The cards I'd suggest are Shrieking Drake, Man-o'-War, and Dream Stalker. Each of them can bounce themselves repeatedly to build up animar, or bounce another creature for extra etb triggers. Ancestral Statue does the same, but also goes infinite when animar has four +1/+1 counters.
Feel free to check out my animar deck on my profile and have funnn!

Also, Temur Sabertooth has saved my board state many times, bouncing creatures to avoid board wipes & targeted spells on Animar. I've bounced Animar just to avoid paying the Commander tax.
I'd strongly suggest adding a few more artifacts & Trophy Mage

Hey Cloud of Faeries, Palinchron, Peregrine Drake have nice abilities with Animar. Cast them put a counter on him untap lands to cast other creatures which now have a reduced CMC. Bouncing these creatures with Cloudstone Curio or Temur Sabertooth can be an engine with Animar.
Like Curio, creatures who can bounce a creature including themselves when they ETB have synergy with Animar getting to cast creatures again, Man-o'-War, Shrieking Drake and Dream Stalker. If bouncing creatures then creatures who draw when they ETB become very good, Mulldrifter, Elvish Visionary and Wall of Blossoms.
You've playing a lot of high CMC creatures making Fierce Empath a great creature who can tutor for one of these creatures while also putting a counter on Animar. He's even better if bouncing creatures back to your hand to play them again.
Maelstrom Wanderer is pretty busted with Animar using theses strategies I've suggested, his double cascade ETB ability has synergy with the creatures who untap lands, bouncing him a number of ways to play him again getting his ETB ability again for a turn and Empath can tutor for him. His haste and giving all other big creatures you control haste is also quite powerful.
Good luck with your deck.

This is a true Timmy deck right here! So many bombs
Animar decks have wiggle room and you went for planeswalkers; I respect that. Only 1 nonpermanent spell. You need a haste source so you can swing all-out when you pop Primal Surge lol
My favorite strategy includes the bounce creatures. Shrieking Drake is $$$ with animar. Instead of t4 cast something for ; have the Drake bounce itself three times and still cast the four drop... Or play Genesis Hydra for , return with Man-o'-War for , and again g.h. for . Dream Stalker is also good. Imagine all of these with Cloudstone Curio or Purphoros, God of the Forge. None of them are infinite combos, just good ol' magic
+1 from me! Here's my list if you'd like to check it out

this doesnt work, warden reduces colorless cost, drake still cost one blue mana to cast with warden in play.
you could skip the warden entirely and just abuse drake ability with the other creatures, and maybe use other creatures that do the same, like Kor Skyfisher or Dream Stalker. maybe playing a more control deck that wants to stall and counter until you are able to start spending mana in bouncing

Looks deadly. +1 from me
I can't believe the low land count; but animar does win with four or less land. I started along the Wild Cantor/Tinder Wall/Fyndhorn Elves weenie route and kept getting boardwiped after puking my hand onto the 'field. I needed a more midrange aggro to survive
Nowadays I see a bunch of countermagic. I like that you have a lot of those low-impact creatures that don't seem counter worthy but do add up. If you can get animar out and start the +1/+1 train you can win in one turn. Tolaria West I just added to find Cavern of Souls (or even Walking Ballista). Plus I'm considering running more counterspells myself
Keep up the good work!
