This is a cool deck. All the cards are keepable, but these are the cuts I would make. Tried to cut something from each category rather than eliminate one.

  1. Siege Behemoth - Slower than your other evasion granters, 7 mana, and practically only works once.
  2. Essence Warden - A little life can help with the long game in some cases, but it doesn't synergize with anything else in your deck and is a low impact cut.
  3. Mirror Image - the most limited of the clone effects.
  4. Expedition Map - You have good targets, but no GREAT targets which lessens its value (cavern of souls type nonsense).
  5. Ambush Viper - I love me a green doom blade, but is more narrow than coatl.
  6. Loaming Shaman - might save you from decking yourself if labman dies, but...eh. A resolved surge will win you the game if nobody wipes anyway
  7. Void Grafter - 3 CMC and not reusable makes this the cut

At this point, it's a matter of personal taste what to keep because the remainder are all very good. I would try cutting Kiora's Follower , Genesis Hydra , and Gyre Engineer and seeing how the deck functioned.

Suggestions: - Tidespout Tyrant becomes a value engine/backup wincon - Prowling Serpopard or his ancestor Gaea's Herald for reasons - Veilstone Amulet turns all your spells into Mizzium Meddlers. - Cream of the Crop or other topdeck manipulation lets you set up your Rashmi triggers nicely. - Brutalizer Exarch is a bit heavy manawise but has two nice modes - Sages of the Anima easily puts you into crazytown

Happy Flashing!

Khalni Hydra , Primalcrux , Steel Leaf Champion , and Aspect of Hydra make for very, very large creatures.

Yeva, Nature's Herald and Vedalken Orrery for the element of surprise (Yeva's flavor text tho)

Prowling Serpopard and Carnage Tyrant for uncounterability.

Rampant Growth and Nature's Lore are ramp

Amulet of Vigor makes your tapped lands enter untapped.

Prowling Serpopard is a nice 4/3 for 3 that will irritate counterspell decks. I also suggest Skyhunter Prowler for it's flying/vigilance.

TagRag : Dawnbreak Reclaimer is not missing. It's printed in two expansions, Commander 2015 (C15) and Commander Anthology 2018 (CM2) which it's listed on.
I can't fix Prowling Serpopard because the subtype "Cat Snake" does not exist in the database.

+1 I'd recommend going with a "One Turn Knock Out" (OTKO) main strategy, perhaps through Commander Damage, and perhaps a back up Plan B (Creature damage).

With the OTKO strategy in mind, here're some recommendations:

Ramp

Mana Crypt / Ancient Tomb - Really awesome ramps though slightly on the expensive side.

Talisman of Impulse / Fellwar Stone / Mind Stone / Gruul Signet - I'd consider all the 2 or less CMC ramps 1st before I throw in the larger CMC ones.

Nature's Lore / Farseek - Simple effective land ramps.

Recommend to remove Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Grand Warlord Radha, Runaway Steam-Kin, The Mending of Dominaria as they're either too high CMC or don't synergise well with the OTKO strategy (e.g. Radha prefers that you go wide).

Card Draw

Cathartic Reunion - Lets you discard Anger and draws you 3 cards.

Mirri's Guile - Not exactly draw but great card filtering in green.

Recommend to remove Elemental Bond and Lurking Predators as they make you jump through hoops before you get that extra card. At 6 CMC, there're more impactful spells to cast compared to Lurking Predators.

Protecting your Spells

Cavern of Souls / Prowling Serpopard / Vexing Shusher - All makes your (dragon) spells uncounterable. The latter 2 helps eat up a target removal too before your boss comes out.

There're other alternatives like City of Solitude and Dosan the Falling Leaf to guard against counter spells and instant removals.

Have you considered Prowling Serpopard ? Makes the majority of your deck uncounterable.

@JMCraig Have you had a chance to test out Rhythm of the Wild in Animar? I have my reservations regarding the card, but there are people in the Discord that have been giving it good reviews, particularly because it gives mana dorks haste.

As I see it, the major cons of the card are that A) As an enchantment the deck has no way to tutor for it. B) At 3-CMC it wants to be played on turn 2, the same as Animar. And C) It benefits Animar if cast first, but if cast after Animar its play value for its cost goes down significantly.

That being said, if you cast Rhythm on turn 2, then Animar turn 3, there is still a chance of comboing off turn 4 if you have a few mana dorks in hand. Cards like Llanowar Elves are basically free spells if they get haste. And honestly, in a counterspell heavy meta it may be worth waiting until turn 3 to cast Animar if it also gets to be uncounterable.

I think some people have been playing it in Gaea's Herald 's slot, and it is nice that Rhythm only makes your creatures uncounterable, but I wonder if that is better than having the Herald as a possible target with Weird Harvest to help protect the other cards you tutor for? The one green mana in the Herald's cost is much easier to accommodate than the two green mana for Prowling Serpopard .

I keep mentally comparing the Rhythm to Cloudstone Curio . It is at least possible to tutor for the Curio with tutor cards like Fabricate , and even then it's a card that doesn't show up often. Is it worth giving a 3-CMC non-creature card a slot in the deck if you are only ever going to see it if you draw into it, as opposed to a creature that can be a viable tutor target?
