Competitive Animar, Soul of Elements EDH/Commander Deck.

This deck will constantly surprise your opponents, take your empty board state to a victory in 1 turn and consistently win against "Tier 1" commanders.

If you like computing casting cost 5+ cards ahead, this deck is for you. Each game becomes a puzzle to solve and multiple win lines are constantly available.

The deck has won multiple matches for me early, mid & late game. At the end of the day, like all decks - the luck of the draw is your best friend.

Having the right opening hands is essential. Typically you want to cast Animar, Soul of Elements no later than turn 4, have the tools required to pump Animar, Soul of Elements, draw through your deck/tutor for what you need and combo off.

This Animar, Soul of Elements build has a balance of creature based control, combo wombos and just enough counter magic to get by. May times you'll enter a state of "Drawing Your Deck". Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Force of Will will save you / open up win lines when you're in the "Drawing Your Deck" state.

Typical Deck Draws will occur with Aluren + Cloudstone Curio + Glimpse of Nature or Primordial Sage or Soul of the Harvest and 2 3CMC or less creatures.

Generals Constantly Being Faced In The Meta

This deck can win as early as turn 3. By Turn 5 you're almost always able to combo off.

Special thanks to JMCraig & his Ancestral Animar - He has a very similar & extremely powerful Animar build, we've taken different aproaches in areas, however, his deck is just as powerful.
