Phyrexian Ingester Discussion

+1 from me! Love me some Maelstrom Wanderer!
I've been running animar for 4-5 years and haven't quite gotten bored yet. As long as they keep printing relevant cards I'll keep playing it! Picked up an extra copy of Thrasios, Triton Hero for more draw power. That's one you could consider for more ramp/draw.
what about ramp to cascade into late game? like Mind Stone, Hedron Archive, Dreamstone Hedron, Commander's Sphere, etc that can sac to draw. Maybe lose Worn Powerstone to any of those. Farhaven Elf and Wood Elves are ramp that can attack
There's a lot of personal flare in here so idk what all to take out!
I also bought the deck and went yidris, then thrasios/vial smasher, then thrasios/kraum 1v1, and recently swapped to thrasios/tymna. I hope you'll check out a couple of my decks. They're all a work in progress and often outdated on here

Hey I hope you're still working on this! You commented on my deck and it took me a bit to get back as well. I know I +1'd a long ass time ago lol
Since you are going all creatures: you need to find ones that fulfil roles of noncreature spells.
Wood Elves, Farhaven Elf, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Coiling Oracle, maybe Ondu Giant. You have Solemn Simulacrum and Birds of Paradise which are fantastic. There's really expensive ramp too, like Bloom Tender and Lotus Cobra
I could not agree more with hintseeker's first point about drawing cards and utilizing colorless creatures. That's the meat n potatoes of the deck
I like Shaman of the Great Hunt; but not everybody does! It can chug along and turns all your creatures into pseudo-vampires. What's not to like? Thrasios, Triton Hero has a similar draw ability. Rashmi, Eternities Crafter is rad. Prime Speaker Zegana can be huge. Vizier of the Menagerie is a cool new card. Elvish Visionary and Wall of Blossoms just went back into my deck. I don't run Sages of the Anima since I'm running noncreature spells I want to draw, but it would be great in here once you've decided you've played enough lands. Filter them out for multiple creatures per draw. Oracle of Mul Daya is a thing too, and Magus of the Future
To put Cloud of Faeries, Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron into perspective; imagine the payoff of untapping all your lands after casting multiple creature spells and just keep going. Now bounce one of them with Shrieking Drake/Dream Stalker/Man-o'-War, cast again, keep going. With enough +1/+1 counters on animar: Temur Sabertooth can bounce them for infinite mana and infinite animar counters (Cloud of Faeries needs lands like Izzet Boilerworks/Gruul Turf/Simic Growth Chamber). Deadeye Navigator can also gain infinite mana via "Flicker" effect. Lastly, Tidespout Tyrant bouncing any two colorless and/or land-untapping creatures you control goes infinite. Whether it's eldrazi or morph doesn't matter. Ancestral Statue alone bounces itself into an infinite animar
Obviously I've given way too many suggestions. Choose what works for you and your budget. Also every playgroup/meta is different.
Cards I would take out: Ancient Silverback, Enclave Elite, Frontier Guide, Hanweir Lancer, AEther Membrane, Primal Clay, Young Wolf, etc. Instead of running something like Grazing Gladehart; invest in a Purphoros, God of the Forge mwahahaha
Above all, have fun! Cheers!

@VietMoneys, pretty much just good ol' beatdown. i was running three edrazi titans for a while but wanted to lower the avg cmc. the 6-10 creatures that can give a solid smacking do win the game from time to time. cards like Duplicant and Phyrexian Ingester are hilarious to me. exile then swing back
i wanted to try a stronger control aspect, which is fun and feeds into rashmi's ability, but it does need more punch. i plan on putting in an infinite turns package to try and shake it up a bit

Bloom Tender is great if you got the cash. It went way up after 4c legends dropped. If you can Clone-effect an opponent's creature... it taps for up to 5 mana. Clever Impersonator is fun if you like Altered Ego. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Seedborn Muse are two in have in my rashmi deck
+1 from me! Feel free to check out some of my decks for ideas. A couple are outdated on here vs paper version but still appreciate the +1s

I also think some of the "detain" creatures are a waste. especially when there's plenty of exile creatures. Fiend Hunter Restoration Angel Angel of Serenity things like that. if you pair it with blink gimmicks, you detain something forever.
Also think a spell like Detention Sphere is meh in edh, unless you're naming like sol ring. i like Prison Term locks down a thing, and then can be moved to another thing. but that's just my personal preference... i find i have answers for misc things, what i like is being able to see what's played, and lock a new creature down.
other win-con ideas. swarm ball creatures like Myr Battlesphere
I also like Reality Acid in a deck like this.
i also think... altar of the brood is kinda meh. but maybe adding other etb mill creatures could help with that plan. also... maybe gilded lotus is too much, or tsabo's web. Even something like sphynx rev...is kinda meh. you'll get more action blinking mulldrifter or other draw/recycle cards if your engine is going. and the life... from rev is kinda meh. there's prob a few cuts for better cards. I'd kinda want more wraths. and maybe some bigger bodies. and trim out meh artifacts/enchants

In my Mirko Vosk deck I ended up cutting both Dimir Doppelganger and Evil Twin, especially the Twin, is okay to copy a Commander and keep killing it, it is awesome against something like Meren of Clan Nel Toth but it's somewhat hit or miss. Maybe Body Double, since Lazav, Dimir Mastermind has Hexproof, or the other around, since Body Double gets ETB triggers, it will heavily depend on your meta. But I'd probably go with cutting a few clones into some more control, for the same reason you don't consider Sphinx's Tutelage that good in EDH: Milling doesn't scale that well, and even the faster mill decks find some walls that need being dealt with.
And keep in mind that if someone wants to stall you, the original Eldrazi Titans, Blightsteel Colossus, Serra Avatar and such keep going back into the deck, so they might find a way to stop you from milling them, and in that case you should have a few exile spells up your sleeve. Duplicant is a good one, considering you are running clones to begin with, Phyrexian Ingester is awesome and Reality Shift is an incredibly underrated card. So if this becomes a problem in your meta in the future there's some ideas on how to deal with it.
