@Rivrek: Like enpc already mentioned. Tazri gives you access to the best cards in the format, and he can convert infinite colorless mana into a win by using his ability until you find either Thrasios/Spellseeker + Thassa's Oracle to close out the game. But in most cases, Najeela, Kenrith or Thrasios + Partner are just the better choice.

@Dam0: After the Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary ban, Seton, Krosan Protector was the best mono green commander, but after that Selvala, Yisan and Ashaya showed up and Seton got overshadowed. I've no doubt that Seton is still a strong commander, but he's just outclassed by Selvala/Yisan and Ashaya... Maybe he's on the same page as Marwyn... After the release of all the mentioned commanders, I've rarely seen Seton. Because of that, we're also lacking enough reliable data on him... In our opinion, he's a bit outclassed, and therefore he's fringe competitive for us. But show us your list and tell me the advantages of Seton over Marwyn or Ashaya.

@Nonary27: You already answered your own question. With Unesh you can snowball very quickly because of all the card advantage she provides... I mean, you can play Universal Automaton for and do a Fact or Fiction-effect for every changeling or Sphinx you'll play. Mono blue wincons (Jace, Wielder of Mysteries, Triskaidekaphile or Atemsis, All-Seeing) are also easier than deleting every opponent with combat damage, and you can also easily protect your gameplan with Counterspells which is obviously better than mono red spells. There are also mono blue Sphinxes who can win a game by themselves: Sphinx of the Second Sun & Consecrated Sphinx

Hey, good start. This new Commander is really interesting and I like that there's at least two different clear ways to setup to transform him.

It's too bad you're going with a restrictive creature type theme since Baleful Strix and Tomebound Lich are quite good creatures with Krothuss, Lord of the Deep and Lich is a discard outlet for Runo/other reanimation. You're playing many nonHuman, nonMerfolk and nonKraken/Leviathan/Octopus/Serpent creatures therefore maybe make the exception for these two?

42 is a lot of creatures. Consider cutting some for some more low CMC spells to help to setup Runo by getting a 6 CMC or greater creature into your graveyard or putting one from your hand on top of your library?

Spellseeker is a very good Human especially if you get to make copies of her with Krothuss. Archetype of Imagination is a 6 CMC Human and it makes it very difficult for your opponents to block Krothuss/the attacking creature/attacking token copy of that creature; basically they're unblockable. Pair Archetype with Stormtide Leviathan.

Obsessive Stitcher is a Human, a looter for Runo and best of all a reanimation source that can be at instant speed. Archaeomancer is a Human and it can recur a reanimation spell such as Victimize or any other instant/sorcery; it's nice if you get to make copies of her with Krothuss.


Some cards to consider cutting:

  • Enlightened Maniac
  • Library Larcenist
  • Docent of Perfection
  • Voldaren Pariah
  • Shipbreaker Kraken
  • Icebreaker Kraken
  • Inga Rune-Eyes
  • Trench Behemoth
  • Wayfarer's Bauble
  • Sky Diamond
  • Nadir Kraken

Good luck with your deck.

Exploration, Burgeoning, and Wild Cantor are 3 more options for turn 2 Animar.

Temur Sabertooth and Equilibrium are 2 more bounce enablers to abuse etb's.

Walking Ballista and Purphoros, God of the Forge make any infinite bounce combos lethal. I.e. Ancestral Statue or any Cloudstone Curio combo.

Palinchron goes infinite by itself if Animar has 4+ counters. Cloud of Faeries and Peregrine Drake are worth running also (Great Whale if Palinchron is understandably out of your budget).

Spellseeker/Neoform and Weird Harvest are worth running if you add Walking Ballista. Weird Harvest looks up Ballista/Statue for both combo pieces and Spellseeker/Neoform are the last pieces you don't already run for the most efficient combo line in Animar. It only requires Imperial Recruiter in hand, 2 counters on Animar, , and 4 life.

  1. Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph

  2. Phyrexian Metamorph for 2 life copies Recruiter and looks up Spellseeker.

  3. Spellseeker looks up Neoform.

  4. Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue.

  5. Bounce statue over and over til Animar's power is double your opponents life totals and use Statue's final bounce trigger to return Metamorph to hand.

  6. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

Feel free to check out my list for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid ⫷PRIMER⫸

Last_Laugh oh wow! I haven’t seen that combo before. It definitely seems simple and easy to fit in this deck as well. Thanks for the tip! I’ll just need to find a Spellseeker now for a decent price.

EleshNornsFs that is usually the case if you are tutoring a card, or finding it in a graveyard, or casting it for free.

A Spellseeker may find a Shatterskull Smashing  Flip because in your library, for the mana value of the card, is considered 0.

However, when you pay 8 mana to càst the Shatterskull Smashing  Flip, when it is on the stack, its converted mana cost is 8 and it can be hit with a Disdainful Stroke.

It's the difference between the converted mana cost of a card (in your hand, graveyard, library, in play), and the converted mana cost of a spell (on the stack) and they're only different for X spells. You can use Disdainful Stroke on a Walking Ballista being cast for =4, but when it has resolved, the mana cost of the permanent is , and anywhere but on the stack, is considered 0 to determine mana value. That is why it will die to Fatal Push without even activating Revolt.

Spellseeker and Neoform are both good on their own but they also enable the most efficient combo line in Animar. It only requires , 4 life, Imperial Recruiter in hand, and Animar only needs 2 counters. 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. Self bounce the Statue until Animar is double all of your opponents life totals and use the Statue'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.

Weird Harvest is another effect to look up Statue/Ballista for the win.

SloanRanger on [Primer] Casting the Mythal: An Inalla Guide

Absolutely love the primer that you’ve written for your Inalla deck.

I wanted to mention a couple of all stars that I’ve found when I’ve been playing Inalla; the first is Trinket Mage which is incredibly versatile when you run all three of the artifact lands in the Grixis colours (Seat of the Synod, Vault of Whispers & Great Furnace). Some of the wizards in the deck can be quite tricky to cast with the coloured mana symbols in their costs but with Trinket Mage you can grab a land of the colour that you’re missing along with a Sol Ring. Another Trinket Mage target that I’ve been experimenting with is Skullclamp, as so many wizards only have one toughness they make great targets for the clamp and it’s even better when you’re clamping a token copy of the wizard as well.

The final card I wanted to mention is Twinflame which can be used as a win condition with Dualcaster Mage similar to the Ghostly Flicker combo except that Twinflame gives the token copy haste as well so you don’t need to create a copy using the eminence trigger. The best part about using this combo is that Twinflame is searchable using Spellseeker and with the token copy of Spellseeker you can search for a tutor like Demonic Tutor/Diabolic Tutor that can then find your Dualcaster Mage allowing you to combo quickly if you’re playing against some powerful decks.
