Thanks for the input!
I am indeed working with a budget. trying to keep it close to $100
When I put this deck together originally, I had Akroma, Angel of Fury, but it burns all of the red I have and it's really just 6 unblockable (give it protection from color) and that, by itself, is not good in my meta.
Since I already play morphs for free with Animar, and their effects are flip costs, not enter costs, so I don't need Dermoplasm
Proteus Machine is a cool card to bluff with, but as this is a morph deck, pretty much everything is a bluff already lol
Honestly, I just put in Myr Superion because I loved the work-around with Animar, but I do want a large colorless creature. Darksteel Colossus Is cheaper and less scary. Won't paint a huge target on my back.
I'm still unclear on what Rogue's Passage will do, besides let an infinite Animar through, which I already do with changing the protection color anyway...
You're right about Ophidian. I've been adding better card draw recently.
Thank you so much for the input! This deck is my pride and joy, and it's so much fun to play.

Hey, thanks for the comment!
Cool idea for an Animar deck. Are you working within any budget constraints or anything? I'm surprised not to see Akroma, Angel of Fury. The is rough but not too bad in Animar's colors.
Thousand Winds is pretty much a win con if someone's tapped out. Dwarven Blastminer might be a sideboard card, but being able to pop annoying lands like Rogue's Passage, Maze of Ith or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and the like on the cheap is amazing.
Proteus Machine can be a good bluff or just a free creature.
Rogue's Passage will help a lot in getting those morphed creatures in when they figure out what you're doing.
The only problem I really see with your deck is a lack of longevity and some lack of cohesion. You're like 75% in on morph, but you've also got some extraneous cards you don't really need to be using, like Ophidian(You're in blue-you'll get better payoff just using a draw spell or something that taps to draw)

You don't really have any one-drops. What about Obscuring AEther?
Add in a few Zoetic Cavern?

Nice deck! I've been brewing a morph deck too and found your deck while googling for ideas. You had some cards down I hadn't thought about, so thanks for that!
I'm using Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as the Commander, because I really wanted to use again Mastery of the Unseen since it rotated out of Standard, and black has some powerful cards too, like Ghastly Conscription. I'm making use of the proliferate too with planeswalkers and cards like Gavony Township.
Here're some cards I've considered that you don't have on your list.
Whisperwood Elemental is incredibly strong, and can give you an advantage over board wipes.
Illusionary Mask probably has the most convoluted card text of all time, but it has great synergy with morph.
Also, Ritual of Subdual shuts down your opponents' spells and lets you beat them down with morphs.

If you want to have more fun with the Wolf tokens, Raised by Wolves would double the number of wolves you have when Fed to the Pack.
So, I'm trying to think of cards that'll come in and out of the graveyard to keep Feeding the Pack, but in the colors of blue and green, options are limited.
Brackwater Elemental, Advanced Stitchwing, Deathmist Raptor look like the only usable ones, and they're not great. Deathmist Raptor and Feed the Pack have synergy with with Den Protector, Dragon's Eye Savants, and Qarsi Deceiver, but that's about it. This morph thing might be an idea for a different deck.

seshiro_of_the_orochi i think you would like to take a look at that :p
to be honest i feel like something is off, maybe the fact that the nagas don't have a real synergy between them like the snakes. i tried to go for a heavy Morph subtheme with things like Obscuring Æther, Secret Plans and Qarsi Deceiver but i'm really unsure if this is the way to go...
