greyninja on Animar's Communistic Reign

Animar is my favorite! +1 from me

One sure-fire way to build up +1/+1 counters on animar is to bounce your own creatures and play them again. Shrieking Drake is an all-star. It can target itself then be played again. Rather than playing a 4cmc creature and giving animar only one counter, instead play Shrieking Drake three times then the 4cmc creature and animar has 4 counters! Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War are good for redundancy. Cloudstone Curio is by far the best artifact you can run in animar for the same reason. Ancestral Statue is the #1 artifact creature; once you have four counters on animar this lil guy goes infinite!

Purphoros, God of the Forge (which you have) and Impact Tremors take advantage of rapid fire creature casting. As does Soul of the Harvest and the like

I'd shoot to get your creature count up to 35+. Once animar gets huge you likely won't need the artifacts that make things cheaper. Chlorophant I'd take out since it's kinda slow, as is Argentum Armor, Goblin Game, etc

You have a decent amount of instants and sorceries. Maybe swap those into creatures that do similar effects? Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk, Inferno Titan, Flametongue Kavu, Duplicant, Phyrexian Ingester, etc. Shock and Lightning Strike can be underwhelming in multiplayer, but are decent in 1v1. Depends on what you're going for. If you're truly going for counterspells and burn; Riku of Two Reflections might be the better commander, but I personally love animar beatdown tactics

Here's my animar deck for you to check out for ideas. If you get a chance please upvote and tell me what you think! It's not perfect; but it's fun af and can outright win turns 3-4.

Cheers!

Earthcraft is also a fantastic combo piece, allowing you to untap a basic to pay for Man-o'-War and other such critters. If you have something like Soul of the Harvest or Primordial Sage out, you can essentially draw your entire deck, cast all the creatures, give them Haste with Urabrask the Hidden, and make them huge and Trample with Craterhoof Behemoth.

Animar is very combo centric...

Ancestral Statue and Purphoros, God of the Forge. Aluren, a bounce creature like Man-o'-War, or Cloudstone Curio also helps. These also work well with Tidespout Tyrant.

greyninja on Animar Morph Draft

+1 from me; Animar is my favorite commander and I like the direction you're taking it

One card that is a staple in animar decks is Cloudstone Curio. Once animar is out and has his three +1/+1 counters; you can infinitely bounce and cast the morph creatures then swing w a huuuge animar. Tidespout Tyrant can act as curio #2

Shrieking Drake is another fantastic card. Rather than play a morph for , then another for , then to build up animar; just cast Shrieking Drake three times in a row (targeting itself) then play the morphs for free! I also use Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War for redundancy

Dwarven Blastminer is another morph, but not everybody appreciates land destruction lol

I hope you'll swing by my animar deck for ideas, +1, and tell me what you think!

Gempalm Polluter is a necessity for any Zombie deck. The cycling is really good.

Graveborn Muse is great to keep your hand full. Combos nicely with Rooftop Storm.

Liliana's Reaver is a good midrange card.

Lifebane Zombie is a great sideboard option vs green and white. With all the recursion in your deck, chances are you'll be exile a whole lot of cards.

Undead Warchief is amazing, and only four dollars.

Cemetery Reaper is a zombie lord.

Call to the Grave is great in that it causes all other players to sacrifice a creature on their turns, while leaving you virtually unharmed. The only problem is that your commander will be sacrificed too, but compared to the advantage, I'd say it's worth.

Soulless One and Shepherd of Rot are both good cards to consider as well.

Door of Destinies makes all your Zombies much stronger. Not to mention the shenanigans with Army of the Damned.

Sedraxis Alchemist is this deck's version of Man-o'-War. It also combos with Rooftop Storm and Door of Destinies for infinite p/t for your zombies.

epajula on Looking for a Good Deck ...

Eldrazi Displacer, Roon of the Hidden Realm, Mistmeadow Witch, Crystal Shard, Dissipation Field, AEther Adept, Reflector Mage, Man-o'-War, Tradewind Rider, Vedalken Mastermind, AEtherize, AEtherspouts, Evacuation, Cyclonic Rift, Devastation Tide, Deputy of Acquittals, and Brago, King Eternal are just a few suggestions.

Be wary of Eldrazi Displacer because he requires colorless mana to activate. Sounds like a cool idea with a bunch of ETB effects on your creatures so if your opponent is creature lite you will still be effective. Lavinia of the Tenth would be a cool general that would be obnoxious to go against. Especially against a deck that utilizes a bunch of mana dorks. Also good for the mirror match. Deadeye Navigator is a total must. I know someone else mentioned him, but if you do get him on the board he's so broken. Another idea would be to play Mimic Vat having recurring creatures of you or your opponents sounds legit.

Building another EDH deck, this time it's Elves PLUS Prossh, put together! (Quiet list plug: do you like FREE STUFF?) Need help with some of the missing cards.

I am especially anxious to get the two partner commanders!

Here's my binder. There's only a few things in there I'd be reluctant to trade for the above pieces. There's value up and down in there, I promise!

Comments below or on my binder please!

TY in advance!
