Hey there! Hope all is well. Was checking out your list and could recommend running a copy of Ancestral Statue . It bounces your Merchant so you can recast from your hand rather than the Command Zone. Also Tortured Existence can help you recycle the Merchant from your graveyard so you can recast and net more gain.

Just a couple ideas I though might me pretty good to include.

Have fun!!

Just pointing out 2 of the best combo lines in Animar. The best isn't cheap but something to work towards over time.

Combo #1: Needs Imperial Recruiter in hand, 2 counters on Animar, 4 life, and only .

Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph . Metamorph for 2 life copies Recruiter to look up Spellseeker . Spellseeker looks up Neoform . Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue . Statue self bounce until Animar is double your opponents life total then use it's final bounce to return Phyrexian Metamorph to hand. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

Combo #2: This combos requirements change depending on which card you start with. Imperial Recruiter finds Spellseeker . Spellseeker finds Weird Harvest . Weird Harvest for 2 looks up Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista.

Land untap etb's are worth their weight in gold here. Cloud of Faeries and Peregrine Drake are reasonably priced... Great Whale and Palinchron not so much. Stadium Vendors also falls into this category and can net infinite mana in Cloudstone loops.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Weird Harvest looks up Ancestral Statue and Walking Ballista for a more reliable route to that combo. Spellseeker can also look up Weird Harvest.

Also if you ever get Imperial Recruiter and Spellseeker in here... also add Neoform . The following is the most streamlined way to combo in Animar and only requires 2 counters on Animar: , 4 life, and Imperial Recruiter in hand. Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph . Metamorph for 2 life copies Recruiter and looks up Spellseeker . Spellseeker looks up Neoform . Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue . Play Statue bouncing itself until Animar is double your opponents life total then use Statue's final bounce to return Phyrexian Metamorph to hand. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

So, I want to add an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger , as I have the possibility of bouncing and recasting amount of times with Cloudstone Curio and Animar, Soul of Elements , essentially exiling my opponents boards entirely. I have this effect with destroy with Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre and also damage by bouncing Ancestral Statue and having Impact Tremors or Purph on the board. If I have Animar on the board, I guess I have the opportunity to put an arbitrarily large number of +1/+1 counters on them as well, and have free bouncy Eldrazi. YAY! FUN FOR EVERYONE!

Advice on what to cut would be super helpful

Ancestral Statue is always my awnser to this question, its dirt cheep, 4 cmc is manageable with reducers or infinite mana, and it can target itself.
