Animar, Soul of Elements

3/25/2019

Some new cards have been added since the last entry. Cards like Vizier of the Menagerie just make this deck go faster. I added in Defense of the Heart simply because I use this deck a little bit more often in multiplayer now so I figured why not. Also got my hands on the reprint of Imperial Recruiter and Kozilek, Butcher of Truth .

Have done some playtesting and I think 34 lands is just a bit short in this deck. In 5 matches I went down to 5 cards three times due to the lack of land. I think 36 lands is probably more appropriate, so I will need to figure out what to cut, but I think Yavimaya Elder is definitely an option as I really don't like low CMC cards that require 2 color mana. Its effect only works going into the yard and it costs an additional 2 colorless to activate its ability. I'm also tempted on removing one of the dorks for Sylvan Ranger and/or Solemn Simulacrum as right now I don't believe I have enough ETB land search.

I know there are important lands missing, but unless someone wants to fork out $300+ for a Volcanic Island or a Gaea's Cradle for me this is what I got.
