Commander (1)


Here's my baby. I've been playing Animar for several years now and he (it?) is my favorite commander. Every card in this deck moves you towards a win... no messing around here.

The deck is mainly set up as a combo deck but can win via aggro when the combos don't pan out. Combos revolve around infinite bounce, direct damage, mana, and/or card draw.

Main combo is Weird Harvest into Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista with Spellseeker and Imperial Recruiter (among others) to look the combo up. Even Recruiter>Spellseeker>Harvest>Ballista/Statue only needs 2 starting counters on Animar and for the win.

The rest of the possible combos are too numerous to list but the following are your key pieces. Cloudstone Curio , Equilibrium , and Temur Sabertooth are the main sources of bounce. Glimpse of Nature , Beast Whisperer , Primordial Sage , and Soul of the Harvest are your main draw engines. Peregrine Drake , Great Whale , Palinchron , Earthcraft , and Food Chain are your sources of crazy amounts of mana.

Feedback, upvotes, and ideas are appreciated, thanks in advance. Please feel free to check out my other lists.
