At the beginning of your upkeep, you may move any number of +1/+1 counters from Forgotten Ancient onto other creatures.

Forgotten Ancient Discussion

multimedia on Animar Big N Stompy

Hey, looks good, but one of the best interactions with Animar are cards that can bounce themselves or other creatures you control. This lets you get more counters on Animar faster.

Statue can bounce itself unlimited number of times since its colorless, each time you bounce it you put a counter a on Animar and it reduces the casting cost of Statue.

Low mana cost creatures who give you value when they ETB are good when you can bounce creatures.

When playing a lot of creatures as well as bounce then Beast Whisperer is good repeatable draw. Forgotten Ancient and Managorger Hydra are two good cards for the +1/+1 counters strategy because each gets counters when any player plays a spell. This includes your opponents and in multiplayer Commander these creatures can get very big. They're also good with the strategy of bounce because you're casting creatures after you bounce them back to your hand. Ancient can be a counters engine since at your upkeep you can move counters from him onto any other creatures you control any way you like including onto Animar. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.


For the manabase really consider more lands. 30 total lands is low for your deck to function without being consistently land screwed. Getting land screwed is not fun; it's better to have more lands than not enough. There's some budget ($1-$5 or less each) lands to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Interesting budget cards that interact with +1/+1 counters:

Well my first question would be : Your list isn't currently standard legal, is that because you want it that way or that you didn't notice? If your answer is the latter, you can probably start by removing the cards that aren't standard legal such as :

As for adds, I think Sharktocrab is huge in this deck, especially with your familiar that allows you to recreate the effect! You not only prevent him from blocking, but you'll also prevent him from attacking on his next turn so you can just go to town!

Any other suggestions I may have highly depend on what format you wish to go into!

Forgotten Ancient och Pir, Imaginative Rascal är bra includes samt Tuskguard Captain även Fireshrieker can vara bra då den ger den dubble skada vilket gör att den dödar med commander damage på endast 11 pwr istället för 21

I just looked what I still have in my deck: Bioshift and Forgotten Ancient are very budget and synergize very well.
