Primordial Sage Discussion

I myself play Animar and this is how games normally go. Either you go for value and go wide, meaning you just brawl it out and win, or you go for combo. Here's the combo lines I run and you may be interested in them too, seeing as how you have several of the pieces already.
Fierce Empath --> Brutalizer Exarch (stack the triggers of Beast Whisperer so that you draw the card you tutor)--> Trophy Mage / Spellseeker . If you have Imperial Recruiter you can just skip straight to Trophy Mage or Spellseeker.
Trophy Mage --> Cloudstone Curio . Cloudstone curio will win games (especially with either Ulamog in play. You get to remove literally everything). If you end up comboing off with cloudstone curio, drawing your deck and generating infinite mana, you'll need some kind of haste enabler. Haste is very special to Animar.
Also, you need Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest . Together with Beast Whisperer you will have three of those effects in your deck ( Glimpse of Nature bumps it up to 4). You need as much as you can get.

Pretty good deck. I do have a few suggestions though. I'll try to break it down by category.
Board Protection- Draining Whelk is all that comes to mind that's a permanent.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. I've been playing the deck for over 5 years now so it's fairly optimized. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Whenever you have the time, I am interested in hearing your current perspective on some of the cards run in this build.
3) The re-inclusion of Slithermuse .
4) Gaea's Herald and the risk it poses of allowing opponents to get their own combo creatures past counterspells.
5) And the general level of risk that you think is involved in casting Weird Harvest .
I'm still of the opinion that Loyal Drake's card draw is rather slow. Wouldn't it be better to run Trinket Mage in that slot, since it can tutor for Skullclamp , Walking Ballista , or Lotus Petal to basically make itself a "free" spell that turn?

Also, sorry to post so much, and I should have collected my thoughts first, having thought about building a werewolf deck before. I would also put in some higher impact interaction than Destructive Revelry and Savage Twister . The former is great in 60-card formats for its efficiency, but you really want to be running something like Bane of Progress , especially with Ruric. Krosan Grip is also better, since the 2 life rarely matters, and Vandalblast and Blasphemous Act are both staples of the format. A lot of people also like Decimate and Hull Breach in GR. Finally, you'll want some card draw. Vanquisher's Banner , Herald's Horn , and Path of Ancestry are all good, but generic stuff like Beast Whisperer , Harmonize , Zendikar Resurgent , Rishkar's Expertise , Soul of the Harvest , Lifecrafter's Bestiary , Shamanic Revelation , Elemental Bond , Greater Good , Regal Force , Primordial Sage , Momentous Fall , Life's Legacy , and Soul's Majesty will all help.

Nice deck, a little high long cmc though. I have a few suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down with your categories.
Counters: Forge of Heroes to replace Opal Palace.

No Primal Surge? This deck seems primed for it.
Almost all of your cuts will probably come from creatures and I think you should prioritize ones that don't have an ETB, ie: Ant Queen & Soul of Theros. I'd cut some of your 'bounce your own creature' ETB's, Fleetfoot Panther and Whitemane Lion just aren't exciting creatures and they usually aren't things you'll want to grab off Genesis Wave
Knight of the Reliquary doesn't have a lot of targets to fetch and won't get huge quick as the deck looks like it will be keeping land in play and not a lot will hit the graveyard other than via the Knight's own ability. Maybe cut your worst mana dork?
Glowrider seems a bit out of place here. Probably not bad if you do hit it but its not really a theme/focus of the deck. Gigantomancer is expensive and fragile. Luminarch Ascension also seems a bit misplaced as it feels more of a pillowfort card to me. Wolfbriar Elemental won't do anything early or off Genesis Wave so I'd cut it as well.
Beast Whisperer is important redundancy to go with Soul of the Harvest and Primordial Sage as this will probably be your most consistent form of card draw. Knight of Autumn seems like a good fit in here as well. Sorry to suggest new cards when you're looking to make cuts...
You also have more hubs that you could flag so that more people will come across your deck while searching; 'Selesnya', etc

Hey I love Arixmethes as a commander and was wondering how set in stone you were on it being tribal. Because I’ve been helping my friend build an Arixmethes deck this past week and I found that occasional splashes of other creatures is very helpful (especially on the green side). Cards like Pathbreaker Ibex and Beast Whisperer can often feel like must haves in a deck like this. Some other card draw options that add some depth to the deck could be something like Elemental Bond or Primordial Sage.
