Sword of the Animist Discussion

Missing some staples like Ancient Tomb, Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, etc. By now they're just staples in mana acceleration that there should be zero reason why any deck claiming to be higher than 4 doesn't run them at this point. Especially for a creature that's .

There's also a significant lack of countermagic like Force of Will, Flusterstorm, etc. No other tutors like Grim Tutor, Imperial Seal, or even Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Cruel Tutor and questionable slots like Sword of the Animist, Choked Estuary or Cancel.

I always dig a good Tribal Zombies, but perhaps we can filter out some of the repetitious slots for more utility creatures. I think the big thing to focus is - how do you want to win, and what do you want to win with? Are the zombies tools for mill outlets/drain outlets? If so you could use a massive overhaul. Are you just going swinging with a horde? The same result still kind of applies.

I'm trying to figure out what Kozilek's in for? I understand if you were doing a self mill deck akin to the Gitrog, but this doesn't seem to be the case - thought I could be mistaken.

Try adding Sword of the Animist and Harvest Season because ramping is the best.

Sword of the Animist seems like a great fit for you, given whites general lack of ramp.

With a 7 cmc commander, I think a 3-4 more mana rocks will greatly help you cast and then recast Raksha. 35 lands may be 1-3 too few as well. Its a bit hard to gauge for me, since your curve overall is very low, but again, Rashka.

Sword of the Animist helps you ramp and it an equipment, a very solid card. Its not a cat but does feature a lion, so Knight of the White Orchid would be a solid addition too.

Regal Caracal deserves some consideration as another pump effect.

Sword of the Animist is one of the few ways you can ramp land in mono-w. Equipment so it fits your themes too.

On first glance 35 lands seems a bit low, one or two more may be better.

Love a good Omnath deck! Check out mine: Omnath, Locus of Creature Ramp

Since you are going to have big creatures with counters on them, I would try to throw in a Brawn as it is invaluable once it is killed. Another card I like for counter decks is Predator Ooze since it gets counters when it attacks and has indestructible. It also combos well with Sword of the Animist and Bow of Nylea

Auriel Alright took our Sword of Feast and Famine and Sword of Fire and Ice for Nomad Mythmaker and Retether. I might switch in Replenish when I find one in local stores. Also switched Sword of the Animist for Fellwar Stone. THanks man :D
