Swapped in a bunch of counter magic, need some disruption to stop the games.

Have been running into difficulties running up against Mono Blue decks. A lot of control heavy decks are stopping Animar in his tracks before things get going.

Strongly considering building a blended Animiar / Control.

Priest of Urabrask has been dropped for Cloud of Faeries to many times Priest of Urabrask has just sat in the hand and only presented a good use with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker & Cloudstone Curio. Typically if you're already at the point where Cloudstone Curio is in play, the win con using Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Priest of Urabrask wasn't the best route to take. (Usually you have at least 2 or 3 other win cons at this point.

Trying to figure out where the win cons are. To be frank, if you're looking to play this "control" style deck you can accomplish it with Arcum Dagsson and have a bunch of consistent win cons.

Here's a solid build to follow Super Nasty Arcum Dagsson.

I don't mean to put this deck down, it sounds fun but it feels too much of a control push for a non-control heavy commander.

Don't get me wrong, I love Rashmi, Eternities Crafter as I play her in my Animar, Soul of Combos - Fun Police. She truly shines when you're free casting Ulamog and definately playing the top card that gets flipped.

Triumph of the Hordes is out, Temur Sabertooth is in. After playing a bunch of games Triumph of the Hordes was just a luxury for a win con that felt like it was very opportunistic.

Temur Sabertooth has a lot more versatility, especially being able to blink the Eldrazis

Archetype of Imagination has been dropped for Glen Elendra Archmage - the utility of constant non creature counter spell and the ability to tutor for it with Imperial Recruiter just feels much better. There have been too many times where Glen Elendra Archmage is sitting in the hand and just never gets played.

Can't wait to play test this when I get home on the computer.

Looks real interesting.

Craterhoof Behemoth out for Somberwald Sage - Ramp department felt much more important, fits into the other win con better.

Something about Craterhoof Behemoth just didn't feel right. Great card, just hasn't been a game changer. In many games it's been available as an alternative win con but definitely felt like a tier 3 win con, especially when other options were present at the same time.

With the new legend rule in effect, Diluvian Primordial has been dropped and Empress Galina has been added.

@ KumaLKS There was a point where I had every huge beater in the deck, what it comes down to is you're typically casting Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Artisan of Kozilek or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth for the on cast effects and not to use as beaters. Don't get me wrong, the cards are great to destroy a board state, however, when you're dropping these bombs - you're most likely already in a win condition.

These are especially nice when you have 11+ counters on Animar, Soul of Elements and Cloudstone Curio out.

@ Christmeer no, only commanders that specify that the abilities are active while in the command zone. IE: if the general has "Eminence"

@ KumaLKS - Early on I had Conduit of Ruin in the deck and always found myself dropping the other Eldrazi's without needing to cast Conduit of Ruin for the tutor.

Tutoring has never really felt like an issue, especially tutoring for the beat sticks. Fierce Empath, Fauna Shaman, Survival of the Fittest, or Genesis Hydra really have done the trick.

If you find yourself with an Infinite Animar, Soul of Elements & Genesis Hydra in hand then you're setup to grab exactly what you need at the time. Can also tutor for Genesis Hydra with Imperial Recruiter.

Another Combo which just blows up the game is Glimpse of Nature + Ancestral Statue. Typically I'll rock this out and draw 20 cards at a time. Making sure to hold or bounce Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth before proceeding to discard. It's possible to mill yourself but if you've got untapped mana before kicking this combo off, you're pretty much always set. Even if the Eldrazis are in the last 10 cards of your deck, you've still most likely won at this point.

@ enpc thanks for the comment, truly appreciate the feedback. So far, the only card you mentioned that I have trouble parting with is Archetype of Imagination.

Asceticism has been removed to make space for Pestermite (forgot to add to the list in the beginning.)

So far I've played this in 7 competitive matches and have found Archetype of Imagination to come in clutch many times. Flying Creatures really hurt this deck and have a defensive tactic against them has played out really well along with a very easy way to get by chump blockers.

Diluvian Primordial - Can definitely part ways with this, most likely swap it for Llanowar Elves

Swapping Lotus Cobra for Fyndhorn Elves - Lotus Cobra is too random.

If anyone has any insights on other Win Cons / Combos to include please share them.

Any other mana dorks that should be included?

Looking for constructive criticism on: Animar, Soul of Combos - Fun Police

Looking for tweaks to the deck.
