Oh, and the decklist isn't finished yet (as changed from my Riku build) I will get to it later.
Also, here's my own Animar build, just to introduce you to a few potentially useful ideas.
Hey, this looks like a great take on Animar! +1
I also have a copy of Vigor that I'd be willing to trade, are you offering anything in particular?
Great Whale is amazing in these types of decks because you can untap more lands then u need to tap.
