Stratus Dancer Discussion

Bafanuga i don't have an extra Solemn Simulacrum or Thaumatic Compass Flip. I have every card above sleeved, in a card case and ready to mail off Wednesday. There is also a theme for taking things out without killing them. Ice Floe is one of those. Hopefully dangerous creatures will be constantly tapped, goaded, returned to hand etc. Stratus Dancer is a good counter and its flyer. Everything in the deck can fly. Really wish I had another Gravitational Shift

Animar's main thing is if you can get an ability on a creature, run it over the spell version so Animar gets a counter and provides a discount.
Red typically adds haste enablers. Ogre Battledriver, Urabrask the Hidden, and Maelstrom Wanderer are your best bets. The rest of what red offers ranges from Imperial Recruiter to Dockside Extortionist to Stalking Vengeance (a hilarious clone target... I've had 4 copies at once before)
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's more of a competitive combo list at this point but there's plenty of cards that translate to aggro. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Ok, I'm starting out with an 'I don't mean to be too critical so take this with a grain of salt'. I have suggestions for additions and cuts.
There's 2 main problems here. 1: Your mana cost is a bit high even for Animar (It's reasonable, I've seen MUCH worse but 3.5 avg. cmc or less is ideal) and 2: Your choice of/number of non-creature spells.
I'll address these out of order.
Cut: Mind Stone, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, and Rishkar's Expertise - Replacements: Beastcaller Savant, Rattleclaw Mystic, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Cloud of Faeries, and Peregrine Drake.
I don't want to overwhelm you all at once, so let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down. I can suggest some cuts/replacements from your creatures if you'd like. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Here's my list for ideas... Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Like Tylord2894 mentioned, special actions do not use the stack.

It should also be noted that special actions can still go on the stack with split second as well. This means if you had a face-down Voidmage Apprentice or Stratus Dancer, you could morph it to counter the Krosan Grip when a conventional counterspell wouldn't work.

Your avg. cmc is astronomically high my man. Even with a more casual Animar deck your avg. cmc should be about 3.8 TOPS. As the deck stands, your first few counters on Animar will be very slow and inconsistent.
Sorry if that comes off as overly critical. I have several suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category and keep things budget and casual friendly (mostly).

My playgroup typically allows 1 small rewind per game (per player). If I'm playing in a competitive group, we don't even allow that. I.e. in a competitive game I countered an opponent's Enter the Infinite by morphing Stratus Dancer (Animar deck). Before thinking he slammed down Pact of Negation to counter my counter. He wasted Pact because Stratus Dancer isn't a spell and then lost to his mistake (his best friend/roommate destroyed his 2nd blue source).

Why not pick any of these:
Draining Whelk , Glen Elendra Archmage , Stratus Dancer or Willbender
Instead of Counterspell ?
The synergy of the list above will be higher with your commander than with counterspell.
