Venser, the Sojourner is awesome in commander!

While I'm on the venser train, Venser, Shaper Savant also pretty solid.

I am planning to remove the Unsubstantiates, but as it is now, I don't have the cards to do it. I am trying to get at least 1 more Remand. As for Venser, Shaper Savant - I like his abilities, but the issue is that I don't have any copies and I don't know anyone in my circle that has him. In some aspect I want to keep the deck budget-friendly, but if I get my hands on some better cards, I will add them in.

You could look into some more toolbox stuff.

Unsubstantiate is fine for the sideboard if you are worried about

Abrupt Decay ?

But using it over Remand in the main deck is kind of meh.

Venser, Shaper Savant is a little expensive mana cost but noone expects it and he can counter a spell or bounce ANYTHING

I don't think Venser, Shaper Savant or Restoration Angel are standard legal. But, I think that there are cheaper cards standard legal that could fit this deck nicely.

So after racking enough counters on Animar with the Hoverguard combo, I'm guessing that you just bounce back Metamorph, copy Imperial Recruiter again, then tutor and cast Walking Ballista for the win? That's the simplest line I can currently think of to kill multiple opponents in one turn.

And yeah, I've been looking at Brutalizer Exarch. It's sending me on a bit of a nostalgia trip, because I had included it back in my first version of my Animar deck.

Mad World Rising is my current Animar list, but there are a number of cards that are due to be replaced. Bloodbraid Elf, Venser, Shaper Savant, and Slithermuse only occasionally give me the value I would like from them, and Duplicant is a recent addition that I'm still not sold on. Brainstorm has done good work for me but may not be worth including now that I finally have a Sylvan Library for the deck. Priest of Titania is another recent inclusion that I'm second-guessing. I'm going to keep the Kiki-jiki package for the now because Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch have integrated themselves into how I like to pilot the deck.

So if you are up for giving me some suggestions; lets say I freed up 6 slots in my deck by removing the cards I mentioned above, based on your experience what would be your top six recommended cards that I should include that I don't already have?

Venser, Shaper Savant for deadeye shenanigans and either Peregrine Drake or if you can afford it Palinchron for mana abuse with deadeye. Drake is good with riku as is due to his copy ability, netting you an excess of 3 mana off the combo. Explore is a beautiful card in and of itself. Skyshroud Claim if youre willing to spend money on the ramp. Thats all im going to post for now, if you want more suggestions just ask!

Flickerwisp, Familiar's Ruse, Venser, Shaper Savant, and Deadeye Navigator can all be very powerful options with flicker, though your setup looks pretty decent as-is. Maybe try replacing the Copters with Flickerwisp? Either way, +1!
