Force of Will
You may pay 1 life and exile a blue card from your hand from the game rather than pay this spell's mana cost.
Counter target spell.

Delightful. If you had a Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, what would you cut for it?
Also: The lone Counterspell kind of sticks out. Yeah, there is Commit / Memory but you will probably not counter something for 4CMC. So that solitary counter doesn't do much exept two meager damage off the top. Force of Will would be perfect in that spot but it is probably way out of budget (Force of Negation too, even though it gets reprinted in Double Masters 2022). So I would propose cutting that counterspell entirely and replace it with something fun. A card you could replace it with that gets surprisingly little attention and is heavily underplayed in Yuriko is Mana Severance. This card is amazing in any Yuriko late game. Right now you average CMC with lands is around 2.2 or so. Without lands it's 3.38, that's a 50 % damage increase for your Yuriko triggers (without top deck manipulation) and you will dig through your library much faster. You should be careful with it, obviously. If you suspect an Armageddon this will probably be one of the cards you'd discard.

@magwaaf I do plan on trying out Shadow of Mortality, I just haven't gotten a hold of one yet! I think it will take the spot of Draco since it's actually cast-able, but Blinkmoth Infusion is likely still our best "burn" card since it can be pitched to Force of Will and similar cards.

@DinGo90 I could definitely see Shadow of Mortality replacing Draco. Although it's "only" 15 cmc, it's a card that we can can pretty reasonably cast for BB, unlike Draco. The reason I'd still like to play Blinkmoth Infusion is that it's blue, so we can exile it to Force of Negation, Force of Will, etc.
Let me know what you think!

Anonymous deckbuilder, do you own a Gilded Drake? It would definitely give you valuable interaction against Rashmi, Xyris, Najeela and Winota. And, it would be another blue card to pitch for Force of Will.
I love this version of Omnath you built. I made my version very much similar to yours except I tried to adapt it to the decks I see at home and at the Overlord's place. I have Drake and four additional counterspells added to my list in addition to some minor changes in the creatures.

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.
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?
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.
