Vela the Night-Clad - Because she came in the ninja planechase set, everyone builds her ninja tribal, but she is so good in combo. She is in a great set of colors, any infinite blink effect on a creature insta-wins, and if it is infinite mana, such as Deadeye Navigator+Peregrine Drake or Palinchron+Phantasmal Image there is a lot of solid overlap in your win cons. Also, Rite of Replication, if you dont want to go the combo route, just hits all your opponents for 30 damage when kicked.

If you do want to add Freed, I would recommend finding space for Kiora's Follower. It's a good card which kind of bridges the land/dork/rock spaces and I have had a lot of success with it in the past. With Freed from the Real on it, it combos with Simic Growth Chamber but you can also look at adding High Tide which both combos with Palinchron but also with an Island and Freed+Follower.

That and Follower is just bonkers with either Sol Ring or Mana Vault. Just make sure you get the promo art one, it looks much cooler.

@enpc, TypicalTimmy, Lanzo493 - I have made some changes to the deck today. I swapped Krosan Grip for Nature's Claim, then I swapped the infinite mana combo of Grand Architect+Pili-Pala for Palinchron+Phantasmal Image/Deadeye Navigator. Since I picked up Palinchron I changed my ramp from artifact based to land based, swapping Fellwar Stone, all 3 Signets, and Darksteel Ingot for Fertile Ground, Utopia Sprawl, Search for Tomorrow, Rampant Growth, and Cultivate.

I couldn't find the copy of Freed from the Real I thought I owned, so the Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle combo I was considering didn't make it into the deck, though I would still like to hear y'alls thoughts on the matter. If you dont mind, in my previous comment I mentioned two decks I had laying around both Nicol Bolas is a THIEF! and the Mimeoplasm pre-con located here. If you dont mind flicking to those if you have a second and letting me know if any of those cards would better fit this deck.

Sorry to keep bugging you, but each of you seems to be competent in the format of cEDH and I want to get the best start that I can. I appreciate all of your time, and thank you again for all of your help!!

You don't have to make Arixmethes a creature to tap it for mana. From Gatherer: "Arixmethes can tap for mana the turn it enters the battlefield as long as it has slumber counters on it. If you can figure out how to untap it, that is." You can still use it as a land which taps for .

I like the Palinchron line personally, and it gets much stronger with Neoform and Eldritch Evolution with Tasigur who in theory costs 1 mana. And I support overalpping combos. But I would recommend you have a play with it and see how you prefer to play. As a side note, I will leave a link to my old Damia deck (which I did an update for post retiring it on paper and it is definitely not budget) however it might give you a bit of a framework for land based combo: Damia Morgendorffer.

@TypicalTimmy - I would actually like to keep my mana combos netting me at least one color of mana because i don't want to have to find my mama combos and find a way to filter as well. I run so few solid tutors that i think adding a piece would be worse than waiting a turn honestly. I know there are a few combos that net infinite green mana with Arixmethes, the Slumbering Isle like Freed from the Real. Could those potentially be an option? Or is that too slow because i have to cast 5 spells to make him a creature?

@enpc - I actually own a Palinchron. Only reason I did not include it was because of the high CMC. You think it is worth putting it back in over the Architect combo? I also have an E-Wit i could slot in quite easily. If i do choose to go the Palinchron route, Phantasmal Image steps into the win con slot with Palinchron provided i use land based ramp correct? So i should decrease my rocks except maybe Sol Ring and Mana Vault, add back in land based ramp, drop architect combo and pick up Palinchron? What is your opinion on Arixmethes with this like i mentioned to Timmy?

Scytec: I glossed over the fact that you weren't running Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal. I saw the deck the other day and was going off my memory of it (since I remember the Pili-Pala combo) however jumbled my memory up of it and then glossed over it today - you'll have to excuse me for that.

In that case, it puts even more stress on the deck as you don't have any redundancy on the comob pieces and are now splitting ramp between mana rocks/dorks (which are generally more efficient ramp pieces) and lands which you need to combo.

If you're going to go down the lands route, unfortunately the best card for it is Palinchron, which isn't exactly budget. Great Whale is much cheaper, but still quite costly. Personally I used to use Peregrine Drake, Palinchron, Deadeye Navigator, Eternal Witness and Ghostly Flicker in my Damia, Sage of Stone deck, however would use Tooth and Nail to play it.

The benefit of Tasigur here is that you can also use cards like Neoform and Eldritch Evolution to turn tasigur into the mana untappers. And Evoltion is great since it can really fetch any of the creature parts.

Either way, I would persoanlly make the call to lean more towards land based combos or rock/dork based combos, but not to split your resources down the middle. You can techincally get some overlap if you went Peregrine Drake + Deadeye Navigator and Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal by adding in Eternal Witness since she can work with navigator and reversal to form a loop. But for me it's about getting that overlap without spending too many card slots.

You miss some of the best and most onbvious inclusions here: Ghalta, Primal Hunger, The Great Henge, Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise all reduce their own cost. You can cast them for cheap but still get a high cmc cascade trigger. Kodama of the East Tree is also bonkers in my Imoti, allowing you to put 25+ lands into play untapped in a single turn, that’s especially great with Nyxbloom Ancient or Zendikar Resurgent. Also if you get your hands on a copy of Palinchron or Great Whale, you should consider them. It’s a free cascade trigger or they even ramp with a mana doubler/tripler or lands like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Aetherflux Reservoir is a strong finisher, often giving 150+ life in a single turn. You could also easily reduce the amount of lands quite a bit if you include more ramp and card draw.

That should be enough for a first input

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
