This set seems CRAZY so far. Imperial Seal was definitely not a reprint I saw coming! New cards that were spoiled this morning are Consecrated Sphinx, Bitterblossom and Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, which, if it has a borderless version... I MUST OWN IN FOIL.

MagicMarc Ha, derailing is half the fun : ) But I think I remember seeing Consecrated Sphinx on some episodes of Game Knights and that always pushes cards for commander, for sure.

Not to derail this thread but when did Consecrated Sphinx become so expensive? Must be a commander staple for Blue nowadays?

freezerboy Oh wow, I never considered more than one Consecrated Sphinx on the table. Probably feels great for the players with them, but everyone else must be like, mmmmhm, ooookay : )

I don't see many people playing it anymore, but Consecrated Sphinx would make my list. Times when multiple copies were on the field became a "Wait, how many cards did you draw? 4? Okay I'm gonna draw 8. Oh you drew 15, okay I'll just draw my where did that combo end up? Hahahaha sorry, I have too many cards."

Earle swears by Toski, Bearer of Secrets.

Dakota, if this is an Animar test I am going to ace it. Remember that the best Animar lists are like creature based spellslinger decks. The closer your list gets to 50 creatures the better. I was at 48-49.

I know you are tired of Craterhoof Behemoth but you did include Finale of Devastation. The best decks focus their strategy and wincons. That may not be what you want. The deck certainly looks fun to play.

  1. Should you want to focus the deck more I would include cards that would lead to a turn two Animar. Chrome Mox, Mox Diamond, Wild Growth, and Carpet of Flowers are some that come to mind.

  2. You need Animar on board for three turns I would think. The turn you cast him. The second turn where you cast lower mana creatures to pump up his counters. And then turn three where you play your big threats. How are you going to protect him from spot removal? Better yet, what is your strategy for combating board wipes?

Kodama's Reach? Bloom Tender is the replacement-not even a close call.

Nature's Lore? I would play a mana dork like Llanowar Elves.

Dito for Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern, Ketria Crystal, Sol Ring, Talisman of Creativity and Talisman of Curiosity. Cut all this for Sylvan Safekeeper, Spellskite, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves and some more ways to stop board wipes like Swan Song. I ran Force of Negation and Force of Will in my Animar list but you don't have the blue to support those cards.

Even with the big mana creatures you are playing would Purphoros, God of the Forge not be considered?

Hardened Scales was printed by some Animar lover at Wizard's of the Coast. It should be in here.

A creature based deck without one of the allstar blue creatures, Consecrated Sphinx?

I play Mystic Remora in every deck that has blue. But, that is me and it isn't an auto include in casual.

Crop Rotation is a definite should you play Gaea's Cradle.
