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).

Ramp: Rattleclaw Mystic , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Wood Elves and Wild Cantor are all good options. Cloud of Faeries and Peregrine Drake are also very good here.

Bounce: Equilibrium and Cloudstone Curio are your best options but are a bit more pricey. Shrieking Drake , Dream Stalker , and Man-o'-War are great options to reuse etb's also.

Morph/Free Cast: Den Protector , Ainok Survivalist , and Stratus Dancer .

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

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.

UPDATE: Since three Decks are already at 100 cards, I'm not ending this just yet. I want your opinion on this matter; one at a time each for 3 Decks that may (Or may not) have room for improvement. The ones that do, remember, I left the spare cards in decks 2 & 3, or you can think of your own. Deck 1? If cutting Stratus Dancer wasn't a good idea, what would you suggest for creatures in that deck (I cut Primal Surge for a true to Real-Life Creature-Only Deck.) in other cards' stead also?

Now if you don't mind, I've a lot to do...

I dun suppose I made the wrong cut about Stratus Dancer ? I'm about to change the deck topic to something else on the forums very soon...

Okay. Stratus Dancer is cut. But I also want to know if it's a wise cut. Otherwise, what should've been chosen in your opinion on the Dancers place? I don't suppose you're still busy w/ IRL stuff, ClockworkSwordfish?

Um, should I make the decision myself? I already plan to cut Stratus Dancer anyway unless there is one worse creature than it...

@ClockworkSwordfish: This leaves us w/ one more cut. Ironically, I do have several candidates.

A: Clever Impersonator : This could work as it affect nonland permanents. That said, this is either Too good, or Too "Board hates you, & will target you all against you." Where would you hide?

B: One of the 2 Licids: Turning them into Auras is great, forcing one to equip to an Indestructible Creature so nobody can mess w/ you, in addition to one that thieves an opposing creature. We have Archetype of Endurance here so the only thing that could save such a target is Shroud; & that's an endangered species right now. I'm unsure about cutting the salt for this...

C: Stratus Dancer : Even less limited than Voidmage Apprentice ; & that can at least counter any target spell. This one is extremely limited to just Nonpermanents as a whole. Even if this deck can incorporate a way to flip one Morph up, activate their ability, & go back face down, this is regardless a Creature/Land only Deck. It would have to have a way to do something that's either a creature, a land, & nothing outside that. PURELY IMPOSSIBBLE.

I think I might already have decided, but I'd like an opinion from another.
