Last_Laugh on Animar

6 days ago

Ok the first thing Im noticing here is 34 non-creature spells. That's an absurdly high count for Animar and you want half that TOPS (I run 12 myself).

There should be 0 mana rocks (sol ring is debatable... I don't run it) and 0 Cultivate type cards here (Crop Rotation is ok if you have Gaea's Cradle tier lands to look up). Your mana fixing comes from mana dorks or creatures that search up lands, so just keep those and drop the rest. Vizier of the Menagerie should replace Chromatic Lantern. Also look into Cloud of Faeries and Peregrine Drake (Palinchron too if you can afford it).

Doubling Season should be Hardened Scales... you can do a LOT with the 4 mana you save and the effect is relevant earlier here.

You also need some draw power. Primordial Sage, Garruk's Packleader, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, and Glimpse of Nature are all good options here.

I could go on still but I'm just posting a link to my list for ideas. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

greyninja on Best Combos with panharmonicon?

Would Palinchron go infinite with Panharmonicon?

Untap twice giving you 7 mana and 7 untapped lands, return for , cast again for , netting you 3 mana each time?

Wait, NVM. I just realized that High Tide only works with Palinchron, lol. Sorry.

What do you think about Palinchron, High Tide and Rings of Brighthearth for more infinite mana combos?

Last_Laugh on Temur Animar EDH

The first thing I'm noticing is 30 non creature spells in the deck. With Animar, you want about 15 TOPS (I run 12).

Your Signets, Cultivate etc. should be mana dorks. Anything from Birds of Paradise, Bloom Tender, Somberwald Sage, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Sylvan Caryatid, or Beastcaller Savant. There's loads more options but this covers some of the best options.

Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron are all disgusting here.

I'd also suggest more card draw. Consider Primordial Sage, Sylvan Library, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, Glimpse of Nature, and maybe Garruk's Packleader.

I'd suggest finding room for Heroic Intervention for boardwipe protection. Ancestral Statue goes infinite with Animar and enough mana or counters on Animar (return Ancestral Statue to your hand over and over with its' own ETB). Cloudstone Curio, Equilibrium, and/or Temur Sabertooth are all great options for abusing ETB's.

I could continue but I'm just posting a link to my list for ideas. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Coward_Token on Stranglehold-esque/"cheese hating" EDH cards

I really like how Stranglehold hoses some mechanics that can be boring (and the fun flavor text exemplifying red's anti-intellectualism is a nice bonus). Because of this, I thought I'd brainstorm some cards in the same spirit by similarly hating on arguably cheesy stuff in Commander, e.g. staples, lockdown and various kinds of infinitive combos (while trying to avoid letting my cards enable such shenanigans themselves).

Would appreciate feedback and other cards in a similar vein (maybe an Eminensce/Oloro interactor?), especially from actual cEDH people as I'm not too familiar with the cutthroat realm of 2-3 turn victories myself. Since I feel Stranglehold is too conservatively costed for a kinda niche card, so I might have gone overboard with my below creations by e.g. making them creatures and/or giving them too low CMC. Also, right now the hating is mostly done trough some sort of loss of life or downright prevention; suggestions on mixing things up a bit more would be particularly appreciated.

enpc on Damia, Sage Of Crambos

Looking at your list, you have too many disjointed combos that don't bring enough to the table by themselves. For example, you have the Mike+Trike combo which you can assemble from TaN, however at this point you could just as easily assemble your infintie mana Palinchron combo. You have Lich's Mastery + Horizon Chimera which works with Labman, but almost no other actual draw card effects in the deck that let you capitalise on it. And then you have Duskmantle + Mindcrank combo which is anther infinite mana outlet however mindcrank serves little purpose outside of the combo other than to paint a target on you.

you also have very few lands for such a high average CMC and especailly for a deck that does run the Palinchron combo.

So a few suggestions - cards like Kruphix, God of Horizons don't really add much value here, neither does Clever Impersonator or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. They are just expensive and slow. Market Festival should be land fetching based ramp like Farseek or Nature's Lore - it helps with the the palinchron combo and it's much cheaper to cast. you don't want to spen 4 mana on a ramp spell unless it gives you that much value (think Skyshroud Claim).

Villainous Wealth is bad - outside of combo it's underwhelming and inside of combo Blue Sun's Zenith achieves the same thing but adds more value elsewhere.

Muldrotha, the Gravetide is great as commander, but in the 99 and especially in this list it feels out of place. You have barely any fetch lands and as recursion a Seasons Past would do much more work.
