Glimpse of Nature


Whenever you cast a creature spell this turn, draw a card.

Glimpse of Nature Discussion

I have several suggestions for you. First, you need to take conventional deck building and toss it out the window lol... Animar doesn't get built like a regular deck.

For example, you are running 22 non-creature spells and in Animar you want about 15 tops. Any non-creature that can be replaced with a similar effect on a body needs to happen.

Ramp: Beastcaller Savant , Rattleclaw Mystic , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , Somberwald Sage , etc.

Draw: Beast Whisperer , Soul of the Harvest , Primordial Sage , Tishana, Voice of Thunder , and Glimpse of Nature if it's in your budget.

Land Untap: Cloud of Faeries , Peregrine Drake , Stadium Vendors , Great Whale , etc.

I was just goldfishing a hand where I cast Glimpse of Nature to try drawing some cards and wound up drawing into Statue, enabling me to draw my deck. Normally I would not have been able to go off that turn due to being forced to wait for the Glimpse effect to end so that I didn't deck myself, but I was able to draw into Lotus Petal to cast Peregrine Drake and untap all my lands. That let me cast the Kiki combo for the win without decking myself. I count that as a plus for the Kiki combo since it doesn't rely on having to repeatedly bounce creatures.

I hadn't considered using Phyrexian Metamorph to bounce Ancestral Statue back for free, but that's probably because I seem to constantly play it prior to drawing the Statue, either due to the Neoform line or because I somehow seem to keep drawing it early. I play pretty loose with Metamorph because I have nothing against using it to copy an Elvish Visionary or any other value creature early in the game to net cards and hopefully draw into my combo pieces faster.

My problem with the Beast Whisperer is that I'll quite often have it on the board prior to going into the Neoform line. That means that by the time I get to tutor for Statue I'm usually tapped out and Metamorph is already on the field so it can't be used to bounce Statue if I use the statue to bounce the Whisperer. That often leaves me with having to find alternative ways to remove the Whisperer while still leaving the Statue free to bounce.

Honestly, even if I don't find Kiri worth including now that we have Neoform, I'm still inclined to leave in Peregrine Drake. There have been a lot of times where I was able to combo off turn four instead of five because I had Drake and Lotus Petal available in my deck to reset my lands.

Glimpse of Nature is another great way to storm off. Temur Sabertooth breaks the tribal theme but gives you another way to protect your creatures and a way to ensure you can continue storming off by bouncing a creature to recast for the draw trigger. Concordant Crossroads gives all of your creatures haste so you can alpha strike after Genesis Wave ing your whole deck.

These are going to feel like major critiques but this list needs some direction and tlc badly. I'm trying to help so take it with a grain of salt.

My 2 major problems are your avg. cmc is astronomically high and your choice of and amount of non-creature spells. Your current avg. cmc is 4.84 but you should be more like 3.8 (TOPS, your first couple of counters on Animar will be inconsistent and slow) and non-creature spells should total 15 at the most but you're currently at 24. You also have a lot of non-creatures that have easy creature replacements. I.e. Beast Whisperer , Primordial Sage , Soul of the Harvest , Garruk's Packleader should be your draw engines ( Glimpse of Nature also if it's in your budget even though it's a non-creature).

You non-creature ramp (i.e. Farseek) should be on a body also like Sakura-Tribe Elder or mana dorks like Beastcaller Savant etc. Mana untap etb's are great here also Peregrine Drake , Cloud of Faeries , and Stadium Vendors are your 3 cheapest options.

Counterspells can be Stratus Dancer (morph also goes infinite with Cloudstone/Animar), Draining Whelk , and Glen Elendra Archmage .

If there's a creature version of an effect it gets ran over a non-creature here is the ongoing point. Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not budget friendly as a whole but plenty of budget options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

I can't imagine you'd find yourself using Summer Bloom that often, considering your land count. Glimpse of Nature would create steady card draw if you have enough creatures.

It also might not be worth playing Glimpse of Nature as you would only get a few draws off of it usually. I would suggest another sac outlet in its stead.

You need to lower your avg. cmc a bit. You're currently sitting at 4.44, I'd shoot for more like 3.8.

Cloudstone Curio is another bounce enabler here like Equilibrium. Morph creatures ( Stratus Dancer , Den Protector , and Ainok Survivalist ), colorless Eldrazi, hastey mana dorks, and creatures like Cloud of Faeries , Peregrine Drake , and Stadium Vendors all go infinite with this card.

Ancestral Statue targets itself with its own etb and goes infinite with Animar due to eventually costing nothing to cast. This is easy to combo for unlimited draw, +1+1 counters, or damage with Walking Ballista or Purphoros.

Weird Harvest beats Defense of the Heart here. For only and 3 counters on Animar you can tutor up Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista for the win. For one more and 1 less counter on Animar you can Spellseeker to tutor up Weird Harvest. Add one more and Purphoros can replace Walking Ballista.

Soul of the Harvest , Primordial Sage , Beast Whisperer , and Glimpse of Nature are your best draw options here.

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid
