Creature — Naga Wizard
Morph 4UU (You may cast this card face down as a 2/2 creature for 3. Turn it face up any time for its morph cost.)
When Kheru Spellsnatcher is turned face up, counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, exile it instead of putting it into its owner's graveyard. You may cast that card without paying its mana cost for as long as it remains exiled.

Kheru Spellsnatcher Discussion

Zoetic Cavern seems decent as a morph to trigger Ezuri and then flip to serve as a land. Willbender is one of the best morphs for its ability to protect your stuff from targeted removal. Kheru Spellsnatcher is very mana intensive, but offers a very powerful flip ability. Ainok Survivalist is a decent piece of artifact/enchantment removal. Broodhatch Nantuko is a decent way to produce a bunch of tokens off of people attacking you. I really like Temur Sabertooth as a repeatable bounce outlet. I would also suggest Kodama's Reach and Viridian Joiner as some great pieces of ramp. Fathom Mage is an incredibly powerful card draw engine in any Ezuri deck.
I'm not really sure what Thran Turbine is doing in here. Simic Cluestone seems ok, but I like Simic Keyrune much better for its ability to turn into a difficult to kill creature that can accumulate counters. In this same vein, Lumbering Falls is a great land for this deck.
Check out my Ezuri list (We're Gonna Need a LOT of Dice) for more inspiration. It may not have a morph package, but there are lots of great options for your deck.

I have 35 lands, 15 card draw creatures and 20 ramp creatures: all my creatures perform some kind of function, and I prefer to rely solely on creatures to maintain synergy.
I know that stax generally has a different meaning when it comes to deck composition, but I'm really just looking for oppressive creatures that lock down the board/disrupt board states and ultimately allow me to swing in for big damage.
Cards like Kheru Spellsnatcher are okay, but the high morph cost defeats the purpose of using Animar, Soul of Elements in the first place, and the counterspell effect doesn't really lock down the board.
To give you an idea of what I'm looking for, here's what I already have:

If you're just looking for a card to counter Surgical Extraction, your options are limited. Especially since that is most likely to be their turn 1 play, right after they Thoughtseize it out of your hand.
But, let's assume they're going to wait before they Extirpate your tree. Since you can turn morph cards face-up at any time, they can be used to stop Split-Second spells. It's a short list, but Den Protector, Kheru Spellsnatcher, Silumgar Spell-Eater, Stratus Dancer, and Willbender can stop Extirpate. Den Protector is probably the best one for the job, since it not only fizzles their spell, it gets it back to your hand to cast it again. Since you have 8 Chromatic things, I think you can come up with a green mana pretty easily.
Since both Mimic Vat and Morph cards cost 3, neither of them are unreasonable sideboard options against Extirpate, since none of them will be able to stop the turn 1 discard/extraction. It's something to think about.

Okay okay last comment! Stratus Dancer instead of the Voidmage Prodigy, Willbender, Dulcet Sirens is awesome in EDH, Temur Sabertooth to reoccur useful morphs/save them from dying, Qarsi Deceiver for obvious synergy, and Cryptolith Rite so you can use morphs that you done need atm to help pay other morph costs.

- Hymn of the Wilds (this card sucks in multiplayer. Every deck needs its instants and sorceries)
- Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast gold cards should fit an archetype or just be good, and this doesnt fit either category
- Ghost Council of Orzhova pretty bad actually
- Figure of Destiny I think your initial impression was right. Lets scrap it
- Magister of Worth white has enough wrath effects
- Tidehollow Strix no comment
- Arlinn Kord Flip I think Xenagos is better based on how the archetypes are shaping up
- Surrak Dragonclaw I think Maelstrom Wanderer fits the archetypes in temur better (spells, gruul beats and whatever simic does)
- Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile discourages attacks, even against other players, which is bad. If we had included Azorius hard control, stax or tax this card would be fine though
- Gustcloak Savior I dont think it does enough
- Herald of the Host Serra Angel isnt good enough for this format
- Kytheon, Hero of Akros Flip pikers arent good enough in this format, and he sucks as a planeswalker I think
- Crescendo of War too slow
- Dusk / Dawn I think that ultimately there wont be a deck that really benefits from this
- Just a general note about white: we have too many pump effects. Lets cut a couple.
- Broodbirth Viper fine if the cube is lower power level, but its quite high now
- Quickling do we have a deck for this card?
- Serendib Efreet this card doesnt match up well against multiple opponents
- Reverse Engineer too narrow
- Should we include a few more morphs so that stratus dancer is less obvious? Maybe Willbender, Thousand Winds and Kheru Spellsnatcher? At least all these cards kick ass in multiplayer.
- Bloodghast only good in one deck, and even then, it requires some setup. I feel Reassembling Skeleton is a better option for the cube.
- Sly Requisitioner too narrow
- Triskaidekaphobia cute but too shitty
- Dark Confidant I realized this card will probably just kill you.
- Phyrexian Metamorph feel kind of stupid for missing this
- Spellskite maybe this sucks, I dunno
- Curse of the Swine
- Kheru Spellsnatcher
- Thousand Winds
- Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
- Waste Not
- Innocent Blood
- Bloodchief Ascension
- Gray Merchant of Asphodel
- Reassembling Skeleton
I think our next task will be deciding which are the best 50 or so cards in each color from our pool. that should lay the groundwork for deciding which narrow cards (i.e., archetype-specific) cards we should include. Curious to hear your thoughts on cuts/additions!

What about Kheru Spellsnatcher would aid in keeping a few things off your back.
