the.beanpole I think I'm going to use Reflector Mage instead of AEther Adept, not Man-o'-War. Don't know how I forgot about RM. Kor Cartographer is useful. What do you think I should replace?

Zero1911 I agree, Tidal Force is a bit high on the curve, and I would rather it be ETB instead of each upkeep.

A deck that uses the effect of alluren best would aim at getting the infinite loop with Parasitic Strix and Cavern Harpy. It can be tutored up from nothing by casting Recruiter of the Guard, who gets Man-o'-War. Of course Aluren should be 4 times in a deck based on the card ;)

Ixidron is fun! Aside from creature types, Man-o'-War is strictly better than AEther Adept. Kor Cartographer is a good bounce target as well.

@SkeletonAssembly Resonator is already in there. I thought about playing Cloud and Lightform, but since I don't run a lot of ways to bounce my own creatures(I run Reflector Mage over Man-o'-War and no Echoing Truth) meaning that Manifestet instants and sorceries would just stay 2/2's. I couldn't use them ever. Thanks for the upvote :) I am still working in it, trying to tune a Stax Free version, and then figure out a stax module to upgrade it for more competetive playgroups.

Animar gets a lot of hate, and for good reason. Surrak is better for a fun deck in Temur, my 2c.

Quickling, Man-o'-War, Deadeye Navigator etc. are creature options that will let you bounce your guys for extra value or bounce a problem creature.

Capsize, Erratic Portal, Crystal Shard, etc. are non creature options for bouncing.

I think you're a little land heavy, I'd cut a couple and add either more ramp sorceries or artifacts. I always shoot for 36-18 lands, and 8-10 ramp spells.

JaysomeDecks Thanks for your feedback!

About Shrieking Drake and Man-o'-War, I used to run both with dream stalker as well. Eventually found out with the current mana ramp in the deck it isn't really necassary to get animar himself. (which gives you a huge tartget as it is) It is nice to get him out as soon as possible, but i don't want to rely on him to much.

With all the comparibles and different other cards out there I'm absolutely clueless what I should get out for possible replacements.Instead of Chromatic Lantern i used to run Joiner Adept (for animar counters as well) but found out it doesn't do as much in comparison to the other cards.

I have thought about Vizier of the Menagerie, Deepglow Skate and Increasing Savagery and I am seriously considering them. They do look like they do amazing things, but still wouldn't know what to replace them with.

Paradoxical Outcome does look like a card i'm really interested in. I have more or less moved to a much more interactive deck. (instead of a full on creature deck with Primal Surge) One board wipe still messes me up really hard but I have a lot more interaction to get myself out of it. This looks like a great addition.

Again great thanks for your input!
