edit: just realized that you had Otherworld Atlas, I just missed it. Seasons Past?

Jungle Wayfinder, Ghirapur Orrery, and Weird Harvest aslo fit the aforementioned "helping" theme, and Sage of Ancient Lore  Flip acts as an anti-control card that doubles as a backup general.

I think most people are shaking their heads at Flash Hulk getting yet another tutorable win-con, and that it might prompt people to run more Torpor Orb effects.

The talk on the Discord is still discussing Thassa's Oracle. If your meta doesn't run a lot of ways of shutting down Ballista with cards like Null Rod or Extract then the Oracle isn't really needed. It would also require either Glimpse of Nature or Beast Whisperer + Ancestral Statue , which could still just as easily get you Ballista and are lines that are a little harder to put together.

However, the Oracle line can be achieved using just creatures, which goes back to one of Animar's strengths of having combo lines that dodge all the counterspells that say "non-creature" on them, which is a strength that has been slipping as Neoform and Weird Harvest have become more central to Animar's main combo lines. That same line could be used to potentially win with the help of Ballista and Painter's Servant though, which are already in the deck. And there is the (admittedly very minimal) risk of the line not working out if your win-cons are too close to the bottom of your deck, but with free mana from cards like the moxes and Elvish Spirit Guide to cast Sylvan and Worldly Tutors when you draw them the risk should be near non-existent.

Weird Harvest and Neoform both help enable your Ancestral Statue/Walking Ballista combo. Also consider Spellseeker and Imperial Recruiter .

Neoform feels convoluted but only requires 2 counters on Animar, , and Imperial Recruiter in hand. Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph . Cast Metamorph for 2 life copying Recruiter and looking up Spellseeker . Spellseeker looks up Neoform . Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue . Statue bounces itself until Animar has double the power of your opponents' life totals. Use Statue's final bounce to return Phyrexian Metamorph to hand, play it for 2 life copying Imperial Recruiter again to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

Feel free to check out my list for the Weird Harvest combo and other ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

I don't mean to sound critical but cEDH Animar lists have an avg. cmc that's half of yours and I'm not exaggerating in the slightest.

Competitive Animar lists are trying to combo in 1 of 2 ways and typically win by turn 3-5.

1: Weird Harvest looking up Walking Ballista and Ancestral Statue for the win. This one is seen consistently in competitive Animar.

2: In addition to the Weird Harvest combo it typically runs either Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker combos OR Cloudstone Curio infinite etb's.

The rest of the deck is entirely cantrips, land untappers, T2 Animar options, card draw, tutors, and a few ways to protect your winning turn and Animar. The deck has hardly any threat presence from its creatures outside of combo potential.

Hey would Shared Summons be a better alternative to using Weird Harvest because although it costs you 1 more mana to get both Walking Ballista & Ancestral Statue it's instant speed and your opponents don't get to tutor.

I love good budget builds! Great job. Pattern of Rebirth would work well with Vanifar. Shared Summons gets you Drift of Phantasms and one other combo piece you need. Weird Harvest and Uncage the Menagerie can also help assemble the combo.

Hey LilMissWiz! The main win-con is using Weird Harvest to tutor out Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista , recasting Statue infinite times for infinite counters on Animar, then Ballista everyone with damage. This process is greatly affected by cards like Rhystic Study so I tried to include as much artifact/enchantment hate as possible.
