Hey, you may already be aware of this, but Phyrexian Metamorph has a color identity of blue, and isn’t technically legal in a mono-black deck even if you never play the blue mana. If your group is cool with it all the power to you though.

Another Flash Hulk/Animar combo is you have least four lands, Animar has at least three counters and your opponents among them have at least three artifacts/enchantments.
Hulk tutor for Imperial Recruiter + Dockside Extortionist. Recruiter tutors for Phyrexian Metamorph first, then Kiri-Onna, then Peregrine Drake and last Walking Ballista as the win condition. In the combo for the cost of 8 life use Metamorph to copy Recruiter three times. Metamorph, Kiri and Drake or Extortionist make a bouncing, copying, casting, mana loop to put infinite counters on Animar.

Ok, this is for your combo build...
Neoform is also an option to combo out (Animar's absolute best combo line) but it NEEDS Imperial Recruiter, Spellseeker, Walking Ballista and Phyrexian Metamorph. It needs only 4 life, , 2 counters on Animar, 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. Bounce Statue over and over until Animar is double your opponents life totals and use the final bounce to return Metamorph to hand. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

smashadams83 Thanks for the input!
Rite of Replication: Is that how that works? I'm a little fuzzy on how the legendary rule applies here. I view Rite of Replication as a copy of a sphinx which I think is good, and the kicker option can be huge. The slot that it would have to take I think would be Clever Impersonator or Phyrexian Metamorph. But I prefer the versatility of those cards to the kicker ability. Perhaps its time to take out my trusty Serra Sphinx.
Mystic Sanctuary: I agree with you on this one, I should probably take out an Isalnd for it.
Back to Basics: I have thought about this one before, I think its an excellent card that could take the propoganda slot in some matchups. Typically I don't run it because I don't have fun with it, but it definitely deserves a spot. HOWEVER I don't know how to get rid of it when I want to start using my Shrine to Nykthos. There is a little anti synergy here.
I'll have to do more thinking on Mind Over Matter && Dream Halls, I think they have potential. IDK what slot they would take yet, but I can see them putting in work if I include more card draw into the list. What's holding me back from these cards is that they are basically worse versions of Omniscience.

MapPsycho Thanks for the comment and the upvote! While I do like your suggestions as cards, I don't think they'll be as efficient in this deck since I've found that I'm often using up a lot of my mana during my turns to cast creature spells. If I do end up running counterspells, they would have to be 2 CMC or "free" (i.e Pact of Negation, Force of Negation, and Force of Will) for me to best use my mana.
Too bad those counters I mentioned cost too much, though :(.
I'll probably still consider Foundry of the Consuls, though. It'd be a one time use, but I haven't really been using Castle Ardenvale or Kjeldoran Outpost to generate tokens much. I mostly put them in the deck as "just in case" cards.
FrogBoy95 And another thanks to you for the nice comment and upvote! I'm glad you guys have been liking what I've made; gives me a bit more confidence that the deck won't be a complete dud once I actually buy it in paper lol.
I recently edited the decklist to show some changes I made over the past week or so. Instead of Vedalken Orrery, I'm using Leyline of Anticipation since it basically has the same effect, and more importantly, is waaayyy cheaper than Vedalken Orrery.
On the subject of counterspells, I've also been thinking that better cards for me to use would probably be redirecting effects such as Narset's Reversal, Redirect, and Commandeer. While I don't think counterspells are a complete waste in EDH, I do think they're tougher to use efficiently since you're dealing with more than one person and ultimately end up losing some card advantage. Those redirect spells can help turn opponent's cards completely in your favor and will more or less replace themselves in doing so.
I haven't put those cards in the maindeck, however; currently those "flex slots" are being taken up by Phyrexian Metamorph and Stunt Double, which will ideally let me get more mileage out of my own deck by acting as extra copies of my EtB creatures.
Luminarch Ascension is a cool card, but my issue with it is that it will quickly put a target on your head, and my deck doesn't really have a lot of ways to completely dissuade people from attacking me. Dawn of Hope is much more lowkey and comes with an added bonus of potentially drawing cards, but that mana cost to make one token is a bit too high for my liking, and I don't really have a lot of ways to reliably gain life other than Cloudblazer, Elite Guardmage, and Charming Prince.

ManSauce You are completely right about Parallel Lives I've only got one copy atm and currently that resides in Prossh, Skyraider of my Friends. Good swap suggestion for the Ignot. Stolen Identity is also a good suggestion that I didn't even think of. Fated Infatuation might not be a bad include considering I'm already heavily in blue. Thanks for all the suggestions.
Izzy- I had thought about taking swiftfoot out for a while now, and I think you're right. I really like bringing Feldon of the Third Path in to this as a sneaky way of being able to get my Biovisionary back should he be removed. Bramble Sovereign & and Phyrexian Metamorph are also good suggestions that I will be on the lookout for. Thank you for all the suggestions.
