Considering putting Dwynen, Gilt-Leaf Daen in place of Sylvan Ranger and Whirlwind in the sideboard.

Maybe Sylvan Ranger instead of Civic Wayfinder? Cheaper, but you might want the extra insurance against Electrickery and such.

Punmonkey: Some solid suggestions!! I'm definitely considering Primordial Sage, although its ability is triggered by casting instead. Not that my deck relies to heavily on just flicker, though. So, yeah, worth considering... Not sure about Wood Elves and Silverglade Elemental in this build since Sylvan Ranger and Solemn Simulacrum will likely be covering their purpose. I'd also prefer that Elemental Bond were a creature. So, it's a big maybe.

Whelming Wave bounces all of your elves too. Why not get an effect out of that like say Sylvan Ranger, Coiling Oracle or Eternal Witness?

Interesting idea that you have here. The first thing that I would do is drop Centaur Battlemaster, 1 Ezuri's Archers, and Sylvan Ranger. The centaur (i don't think) is essential to your game plan since your beaters are twingrove and dungrove.

In their place I would either add: 4 Green Sun's Zenith and 1 Dryad Arbor if you have the budget. Assuming that this is a deck where budget is a concern, 4 Sakura-Tribe Elders and keep the archers. Two other ramp cards that might interest you are: Wood Elves as an upgraded Sylvan Ranger and Search for Tomorrow.

carpecanum: Oh yeah, totally. I've been meaning to pick up a Solemn Simulacrum, but I'd somehow overlooked Sylvan Ranger. The counter is definitely the biggest cherry on top, but there's also the flicker interactions with Deadeye Navigator to consider. That shitlord is one of my favorite cards to exploit.

And Ancestral Statue... I'd meant to add that card in so long ago. I don't know how it had alluded me for so long. Thanks for the reminder!

Nullstone Gargoyle, my oh my does that look like a fun card to play against my meta! Excellent suggestion, sir.

Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are amazing but Solemn Simulacrum, Sylvan Ranger etc. tutor a land and give you a counter.

Ancestral Statue is so perfect for Animar i feel bad about using it (and I don't use it in 1v1, but a turn 5 infinite is funny).

Nullstone Gargoyle is a favorite card in my Animar decks.
