As a former Ezuri player I highly recommend Shrieking Drake. Paying one U for one exp counter is about as good a the going rate gets, and you can keep putting drake back in your hand after each time you cast him.

Found it. It's called Shrieking Drake

Okay, you asked me for advice, so here goes. Hope it's not too harsh. ;D

I'm just gonna start with creatures for now.

Advocate of the Beast seems super out of place, you don't have a single beast in the deck, so unless I'm missing something...

Same thing for Arcum Dagsson. You don't have a single artifact creature in the deck, and your only way to make them is Cultivator of Blades. If you can't reliably activate him he's just a really inefficient 2/2. Also, I assume you were going to use him to find Gonti's Aether Heart, but honestly, I don't think you have enough artifact/energy support to make that worthwhile either. If you cut Gonti's heart, you might as well also cut your other energy cards.

Hermit Druid is only good if your a heavy graveyard deck or are using him to combo, so I'd cut him.

Simic Guildmage is neat utility, but it's painfully inefficient. 2 mana to move a single counter. No thank you. But that's just me.

Also you have two Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix.

Some very very good creatures I would suggest instead:

Whirler Rogue: 3 exp + unblockable? Oh yeah. Also is a rogue for Notorious Throng.

Mindless Automaton, Cold-Eyed Selkie and Etched Oracle are great for drawing cards.

Triskelion and Walking Ballista are great for winning games when combat is inconvenient.

Deranged Hermit: 5 mana for 5 exp is a good rate.

Shrieking Drake is an MVP. Any unspent blue mana? Convert it into experience at a 1:1 ratio.

Not sure if I can help with the elf tribal, but some cards that have worked in Ezuri for me are Aluren, Shrieking Drake, and Sage of Hours. Your list looks good.

Animar is my favorite! +1 from me

One sure-fire way to build up +1/+1 counters on animar is to bounce your own creatures and play them again. Shrieking Drake is an all-star. It can target itself then be played again. Rather than playing a 4cmc creature and giving animar only one counter, instead play Shrieking Drake three times then the 4cmc creature and animar has 4 counters! Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War are good for redundancy. Cloudstone Curio is by far the best artifact you can run in animar for the same reason. Ancestral Statue is the #1 artifact creature; once you have four counters on animar this lil guy goes infinite!

Purphoros, God of the Forge (which you have) and Impact Tremors take advantage of rapid fire creature casting. As does Soul of the Harvest and the like

I'd shoot to get your creature count up to 35+. Once animar gets huge you likely won't need the artifacts that make things cheaper. Chlorophant I'd take out since it's kinda slow, as is Argentum Armor, Goblin Game, etc

You have a decent amount of instants and sorceries. Maybe swap those into creatures that do similar effects? Mystic Snake, Draining Whelk, Inferno Titan, Flametongue Kavu, Duplicant, Phyrexian Ingester, etc. Shock and Lightning Strike can be underwhelming in multiplayer, but are decent in 1v1. Depends on what you're going for. If you're truly going for counterspells and burn; Riku of Two Reflections might be the better commander, but I personally love animar beatdown tactics

Here's my animar deck for you to check out for ideas. If you get a chance please upvote and tell me what you think! It's not perfect; but it's fun af and can outright win turns 3-4.

Cheers!

+1 from me; Animar is my favorite commander and I like the direction you're taking it

One card that is a staple in animar decks is Cloudstone Curio. Once animar is out and has his three +1/+1 counters; you can infinitely bounce and cast the morph creatures then swing w a huuuge animar. Tidespout Tyrant can act as curio #2

Shrieking Drake is another fantastic card. Rather than play a morph for , then another for , then to build up animar; just cast Shrieking Drake three times in a row (targeting itself) then play the morphs for free! I also use Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War for redundancy

Dwarven Blastminer is another morph, but not everybody appreciates land destruction lol

I hope you'll swing by my animar deck for ideas, +1, and tell me what you think!

greyninja Thanks for the suggestions! I don't know about the Slivers since there wouldn't be enough slivers for that kind of synergy. But I will look into Shrieking Drake and Imperial Recruiter.

About that Walking Ballista, I actually pulled the foil version as a pre-release promo. Figured I want to pimp out my deck with it. (I actually pulled another regular copy during the pre-release as well, I think.)

Amazing, +1 from me

Shrieking Drake is the best card I can suggest for you. So much value when paired with animar! Ppl will run Imperial Recruiter to search for stuff like that

If you're running Harvester Druid; might as well be Manaweft Sliver or Gemhide Sliver?

I'm super jealous of that Walking Ballista; looks like you've put some effort into this
