I play both, and yeah, against animar, a well-timed Linvala, the Preserver, Tocatli Honor Guard, Torpor Orb, Hushwing Gryff, or any of my other creature hate normall at least Time Walks them, if not Time Stretches them. Getting a few to stick is enough to make them scoop. Otherwise, I haven't played agaisnt Sisay with my Animar, so I don't know too well about the outs.

Side note, what does this deck do to a resolved Humility?

Love it, I'd definitely add more threat cards like Heroes' Podium and up the count of threatening legendary creatures like Evra, Halcyon Witness, Medomai the Ageless or Jazal Goldmane who are especially good with flash cause then people can't see them coming

Also definitely add Honor-Worn Shaku[%22Legendary%22]+![%22Artifact%22]+![%22Land%22]&color=+![R]+![G]+![B]

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Lena, Selfless Champion, Linvala, the Preserver, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (really nice with flash), Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Yosei, the Morning Star

One huge issue with the story that I have been having since BFZ was a lot of unmentioned Legendary Creatures in the story. Like Omnath, Locus of Rage and Linvala, the Preserver and Ormendahl, Profane Prince and Ishkanah, Grafwidow. In the Dominaria story they are incorporating so many legendary characters! I think they might all appear. Baird, Steward of Argive showed up and I really appreciate that. Also, the writing quality is so much higher with Martha Wells handling all of the story.

Nice deck! I would run 1-3 Linvala, the Preservers, as she can get you out of a tricky situation. If you're only going to run 1 of each Akroma, Thalia's Lancers could be a useful tutor. I would run three Giselas and 2 of each of Akromas, but if you're on a budget, this decklist seems like it would dominate! Keep up the good work!
