Primordial Sage Discussion
1 week ago
Duskwatch Recruiter Flip is great for this kind of deck - draw power that never whiffs. Primordial Sage is more precious draw. I know you have Birds of Paradise and Elvish Mystic and the like, but to synergize with Nikya, you should look into creatures that give you more actual lands on the battlefield: Wood Elves , Yavimaya Elder , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Dawntreader Elk , Farhaven Elf , Frontier Guide , etc.
Woodland Bellower is a great tutor that pairs with Fierce Empath to cover nearly everything in your deck.
Ulvenwald Tracker is great removal in a creature-based deck.

These are going to feel like major critiques but this list needs some direction and tlc badly. I'm trying to help so take it with a grain of salt.
My 2 major problems are your avg. cmc is astronomically high and your choice of and amount of non-creature spells. Your current avg. cmc is 4.84 but you should be more like 3.8 (TOPS, your first couple of counters on Animar will be inconsistent and slow) and non-creature spells should total 15 at the most but you're currently at 24. You also have a lot of non-creatures that have easy creature replacements. I.e. Beast Whisperer , Primordial Sage , Soul of the Harvest , Garruk's Packleader should be your draw engines ( Glimpse of Nature also if it's in your budget even though it's a non-creature).
You non-creature ramp (i.e. Farseek) should be on a body also like Sakura-Tribe Elder or mana dorks like Beastcaller Savant etc. Mana untap etb's are great here also Peregrine Drake , Cloud of Faeries , and Stadium Vendors are your 3 cheapest options.
If there's a creature version of an effect it gets ran over a non-creature here is the ongoing point. Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not budget friendly as a whole but plenty of budget options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

You need to lower your avg. cmc a bit. You're currently sitting at 4.44, I'd shoot for more like 3.8.
Cloudstone Curio is another bounce enabler here like Equilibrium. Morph creatures ( Stratus Dancer , Den Protector , and Ainok Survivalist ), colorless Eldrazi, hastey mana dorks, and creatures like Cloud of Faeries , Peregrine Drake , and Stadium Vendors all go infinite with this card.
Ancestral Statue targets itself with its own etb and goes infinite with Animar due to eventually costing nothing to cast. This is easy to combo for unlimited draw, +1+1 counters, or damage with Walking Ballista or Purphoros.
Weird Harvest beats Defense of the Heart here. For only and 3 counters on Animar you can tutor up Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista for the win. For one more and 1 less counter on Animar you can Spellseeker to tutor up Weird Harvest. Add one more and Purphoros can replace Walking Ballista.

Nice deck. I'm not sure Kiki/Conscripts combo is needed here though. You're focusing on much more streamlined combos here that don't have such a huge reliance on your splash color.
I think you'd be better served with more redundancy in your draw power or bounce enablers. Glimpse of Nature , Soul of the Harvest and/or Primordial Sage for draw and Equilibrium for another good bounce enabler here.

Atzocan Seer and some other mana dorks if you can get them, like Birds of Paradise , Llanowar Elves and Fyndhorn Elves . Artifacts to use, Fellwar Stone , Talisman of Impulse and Talisman of Unity . If you put in the artifacts you can take out a couple lands to make it fit better. For card draw, Guardian Project , Beast Whisperer , Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest . As long as 75% of your creatures is the tribe youre going for, its still tribal.

Nice deck. I do have several suggestions though.
First, Weird Harvest can win the game with only 4 mana and 3 counters on Animar. It essentially Tooth and Nails for Walking Ballista and Ancestral Statue. Add Spellseeker to the mix to tutor up Weird Harvest and win with 5 mana and 2 counters on Animar (3rd counter coming from Spellseeker).
Last group of suggestions is haste enablers like Urabrask the Hidden and/or Ogre Battledriver . Not only is all of your stuff an immediate threat but haste also turns all of your mana dorks into Cloudstone combo pieces like Beastcaller Savant already is.
