Primordial Sage Discussion

I would suggest more cards that give you draw when you cast creature spells.

Garruk's Packleader

Elemental Bond

Primordial Sage

Looks like a pretty sweet list! However, I would consider running a few more ways to recover and/or protect against board wipes. Eldrazi Monument is a great way to both protect your board from destruction and yourself from fliers. Temur Sabertooth is a great way to either give bounce your own creatures to save them from a board wipe, or just eke some additional value out of your etb effects. It also does silly things with a haste enabler on the board, making all kinds of silly infinites possible.

Next, there are some powerful mana producers you might want to consider. Argothian Elder synergizes very nicely with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Growing Rites of Itlimoc , and Elvish Guidance, potentially producing enormous amounts of mana. Viridian Joiner can also generate lots of mana, potentially letting you pump multiple more times with Ezuri or just go infinite with Umbral Mantle.

I feel like Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage are a little too slow for their intended purpose. Generally elfball decks want to explode early, but run out of gas later. While these cards can give you a bit of sustain, generally you'll already be running low on creatures to trigger them by the time they come down. I suggest Shamanic Revelation, Collective Unconscious, and Regal Force as great ways to draw a bunch of cards off of a board of elves, giving you additional value for when your board is cleared.

Finally, mono-green has some issues with fliers. The aforementioned Eldrazi Monument should help with that, but there's another very synergistic option available. Jagged-Scar Archers grows with your elf army, and pings off fliers when its not swinging in for tons of damage.

Hope these suggestions were helpful!

Cloudstone Curio, Snap, Primordial Sage and Glimpse of Nature are great staples for Animar. Fires of Yavimaya and Concordant Crossroads are nice too.

I'd cut down the land count honestly, 39 seems like a lot, especially given discounted spell cost.

Definitely worth looking into morph creatures, they become free to cast as morphs pretty fast. Icefeather Aven is fun, Willbender is awesome, Ainok Survivalist is good, Den Protector is awesome aswell, Hooded Hydra works here for many reasons, Ire Shaman is basically R: get a 3/2 menace creature and draw a card, and Stratus Dancer isn't bad.

Some other decent stuff, do as ya please: Master Biomancer, Solidarity of Heroes, and Vorel of the Hull Clade.

Normally Seton is the go to Druid Commander because you can play cards like Paradox Engine, Mobilize, Benefactor's Draught, and Vitalize + Vanquisher's Banner, Zendikar Resurgent, or Primordial Sage to basically play their whole deck and win on the spot. In an Omnath deck though you want alot of mana doubling effects like Mana Reflection, Gauntlet of Power, Extraplanar Lens, Caged Sun, and Heartbeat of Spring to really make him big along with some mana sinks like Helix Pinnacle or Eldrazi to win.

WOW! Amazingly well done primer. all of a sudden I feel like I need a morph deck... finally something to use my partner commanders for! How do you feel this kind of list compares tot he Animorphs lists and their potential "infinite" with Primordial Sage effects? Would you ever consider running over with Kraum, Ludevic's Opus to include Animar in the 99, is he too weak, or does black give you too much to cut?

But you have to consuder what colors yoyre running too. If you're in mono green then this isn't really worth it at 5 cmc because there are so many green cards that grant you cards for casting creature spells like Zendikar Resurgent and Primordial Sage to name few.

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...

beleza, comecando pelo mais basico, eu vi que ce tem os signets no sideboard, coloca todos kkkkk, eles sao muito fortes, na moral.

eu nao testei, mas so pelo grafico da sua mana curve, acho que seu deck ta muito pesado. eu to ligado que essa e a ideia, mas o foda e que a mayael nao vai ficar na mesa diretao, e se voce ficar travado com as criaturas na sua mao e meio foda, tenta cortar umas criaturas que custam 8/7 e colocar umas que custam 4/5, tem muita criatura boa que custa 5.

falta card draw, tipo, eu vi algumas cartas que te dao card advantage, mas nada que compra carta mesmo, e isso e importante pra caralho, algumas sugestoes: Elemental Bond, Drumhunter, Garruk's Packleader, Primordial Sage, Rishkar's Expertise, Soul of the Harvest, Zendikar Resurgent (recomendo pra caralho essa carta, forte demais sos), Lifecrafter's Bestiary, se voce conseguir um Solemn Simulacrum, massa demais, ele e bem forte, mas ele e carinho.

agora so uma sugestoes aleatorias kkk: Thunderfoot Baloth, Steel Hellkite, Armada Wurm, Rampaging Baloths, Ogre Battledriver.

pessoalmente, eu nao curto certas cartas que ce colocou e eu tiraria, mas claro que fica a seu criterio kkkk, sao so sugestes, tipo, Archangel, bearer of heavens, sempre quis jogar com a Reya Dawnbringer e na moral que essa e o deck pra ela, mas 9 manas e tanta coisa kkkkk, eu deixaria so pq ela e muito massa na moral kkk, Silverblade Paladin nao cabe muito no deck eu acho, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard e lento, nao acho que vale a pena, Fireshrieker e o mesmo role do silverblade paladin, double strike nao e to forte sem trample, e eu to ligado que tem muita coisa com trample, mas tambem tem muita coisa sem, Banefire e Starstorm sao bem ruinzinhos, se voce quer board wipe, Blasphemous Act e o melhor, mas ele ta meio caro, Chain Reaction e Chandra's Ignition sao bons no lugar.
