Yeah, if I'm really trying to combo I play Animar, Soul of Elements lol.

Requires only 2 counters on Animar, 4 life, Imperial Recruiter, and only .

  1. Imperial Recruiter looking up Phyrexian Metamorph.

  2. Play Metamorph for 2 life and copy Imperial Recruiter to look up Spellseeker .

  3. Play Spellseeker to look up Neoform.

  4. Play Neoform and sac Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue.

  5. Play and bounce Ancestral Statue over and over until AnimMe's power is double your opponents' life total combined. You then use Ancestral Statue's final trigger to bounce Phyrexian Metamorph back to your hand.

  6. Play Metamorph for 2 life and copy Imperial Recruiter to look up/play Walking Ballista for the win.

Hilarious +1 from me !

Never seen a few of these cards before. Chaoslace, Quickchange, Dwarven Song, Sea Kings' Blessing, Sway of Illusion, etc. Douse seems really powerful as a sideboard card for Tiny Leaders(?)

I partially feel like Animar, Soul of Elements would be a more fitting commander. Adding a color would hurt the budget but it's on theme lol you have black+white as backup colors to choose from

Jori En, Ruin Diver makes sense when you mention the 2-spell conundrum of a change-color spell plus a destroy-permanent-of-said-color spell. Have fun!

I like the idea of a prison-style Jeskai curse, here's mine, based on Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Lavinia, Azorius Renegade, Chancellor of the Annex, and Gaddock Teeg, among others.

Ojutai's Curse

Legendary Enchantment - Aura Curse

Enchant Player

Enchanted player can't cast creature spells with converted mana cost greater than 3.

Whenever enchanted player casts a spell, counter it unless that player pays .

Whenever the enchanted player casts a spell with a converted mana cost greater than the number of lands they control, Ojutai's Curse deals 5 damage to them.

Temur () is my least favorite wedge/shard. I like stax, aristocrats, and resource-denial oriented control (Lantern Control and 8-rack styles more than more traditional control).

I'd like a Temur commander you think I'd like, or at least one you'd like, if you don't feel like speculating. I just require it does something Temur doesn't have a commander for. Here are the existing Temur commanders and my sense of their themes:

Illuna, Apex of Wishes, which either incentivizes running only one or two nonland permanents or top-deck manipulation and mutate/bounce effects.

Intet, the Dreamer is largely about top-deck manipulation

Kalamax, the Stormsire is about instants and copying effects.

Maelstrom Wanderer is a combo-build using its cascade trigger.

Omnath, Locus of the Roil is Elemental Tribal with Landfall.

Riku of Two Reflections is interesting in that it works both with nontoken creatures and nonpermanent spells. Lutri, the Spellchaser would be ideal, were it not banned, lol, but Wort, the Raidmother, Dualcaster Mage, and Naru Meha, Master Wizard are definitely core to the spirit of its function.

Surak Dragonclaw. is about stompy creatures and maybe Trample-tribal

Xyris, the Writhing Storm is about making opponents draw card Windfall and Wheel of Fortune effects

Yasova Dragonclaw is a voltron-style commander

Animar, Soul of Elements is for artifact creature and morphs.

With cards like Animar, Soul of Elements and Mizzix of the Izmagnus they can be free ;) ;) ;)

I wouldn't be against the idea of it being splashed in a draft set like battlebond2 or conspiracy3. More relevant in draft/sealed, but can splash into eternal formats

+1 from me, animar is my favorite!

Animar, Soul of Elements + Vizier of the Menagerie + Grinning Ignus = infinite animar and infinite mana (colored mana for creatures or colorless for noncreature)

If you're looking at adding eldrazi, or any creatures that untap lands (example: Peregrine Drake), I'd suggest Cloudstone Curio. With Animar and Curio you can infinitely bounce and cast two morph and/or eldrazi creature for free, so something like Oblivion Sower will exile your opponent's entire decks and they lose as they draw a card during their turn lol

Just some food for thought! Feel free to check out both my Animar, Soul of Elements and Omnath, Locus of the Roil decks on my profile for ideas! Have fun!

I upvote every Animar, Soul of Elements deck I find!!!

Honestly if it's an EDH deck in a color scheme I have built, I look to see if it's the same commander as mine or not. 99% chance I'm going to upvote that deck either way
