Stratus Dancer Discussion

Last_Laugh on Animar Commander (Big Eldrazi)

1 week ago

Trying to keep your budget in mind I have several suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category. My main advice is if an effect is available on a creature, use it over other versions (i.e. Stratus Dancer over Negate).

Turn 2 Animar: Birds of Paradise , Wild Cantor , and Utopia Sprawl are all options.

Ramp: Lose your artifacts and look into several options like Rattleclaw Mystic (doubles as a combo piece with bounce enablers), Cloud of Faeries , and Peregrine Drake .

Bounce Enablers: Equilibrium and Temur Sabertooth for repeatable bounce. Shrieking Drake , Dream Stalker , and Man-o'-War for single target (including self).

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not cheap overall but Animar has several good options for reasonable prices. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Last_Laugh on Animar's Bouncing Friends Rev2

The main thing I'm seeing that this deck needs some work on is lowering your non-creature spells by a LOT and adding bounce enablers. Most Animar decks run less than 20 non-creatures and instead run similar effects on their creatures.

I.e. Glen Elendra Archmage, Draining Whelk and Stratus Dancer instead of most traditional counterspells.

Temur Sabertooth, Equilibrium, and Cloudstone Curio are 100% needed here. Curio is expensive but it's worth its weight in gold here.

Birds of Paradise, Wild Cantor, or many other mana dorks over Artifact and Spell ramp.

Other random suggestions: Walking Ballista is your most mana efficient finisher with Ancestral Statue. Vizier of the Menagerie is excellent draw on a damn good card. Shrieking Drake is a fairer version of Ancestral Statue. Clones like Dack's Duplicate, Stunt Double, etc. work great with land untappers like Great Whale and the others you already run.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not budget friendly but there's still budget cards to pick through. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Bafanuga i don't have an extra Solemn Simulacrum or Thaumatic Compass  Flip. I have every card above sleeved, in a card case and ready to mail off Wednesday. There is also a theme for taking things out without killing them. Ice Floe is one of those. Hopefully dangerous creatures will be constantly tapped, goaded, returned to hand etc. Stratus Dancer is a good counter and its flyer. Everything in the deck can fly. Really wish I had another Gravitational Shift

Animar's main thing is if you can get an ability on a creature, run it over the spell version so Animar gets a counter and provides a discount.

Stratus Dancer, Glen Elendra Archmage, Siren Stormtamer, and Draining Whelk over most counterspells (Stubborn Denial is a good spell version here).

Soul of the Harvest and Tishana, Voice of Thunder for card draw.

Sakura-Tribe Elder, Beastcaller Savant (immediately pays for itself due to haste), Wild Cantor (turn 2 Animar), and Cloud of Faeries type cards for ramp.

Red typically adds haste enablers. Ogre Battledriver, Urabrask the Hidden, and Maelstrom Wanderer are your best bets. The rest of what red offers ranges from Imperial Recruiter to Dockside Extortionist to Stalking Vengeance (a hilarious clone target... I've had 4 copies at once before)

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's more of a competitive combo list at this point but there's plenty of cards that translate to aggro. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Ok, I'm starting out with an 'I don't mean to be too critical so take this with a grain of salt'. I have suggestions for additions and cuts.

There's 2 main problems here. 1: Your mana cost is a bit high even for Animar (It's reasonable, I've seen MUCH worse but 3.5 avg. cmc or less is ideal) and 2: Your choice of/number of non-creature spells.

I'll address these out of order.

Cuts/Replacement Suggestion:

Cut: Fuel for the Cause, Mystic Confluence, and Ionize (over costed and no Animar discount) - Replacements: Stratus Dancer, Draining Whelk, and Stubborn Denial.

Cut: Mind Stone, Chromatic Lantern, Commander's Sphere, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, and Rishkar's Expertise - Replacements: Beastcaller Savant, Rattleclaw Mystic, Sakura-Tribe Elder, Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, Cloud of Faeries, and Peregrine Drake.

Cut: Doubling Season, Jiang Yanguu, Path of Discovery, Guardian Project, - Replace: Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, Tishana, Voice of Thunder, and Glimpse of Nature

I don't want to overwhelm you all at once, so let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down. I can suggest some cuts/replacements from your creatures if you'd like. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Here's my list for ideas... Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Like Tylord2894 mentioned, special actions do not use the stack.

The abilities of Voidmage Apprentice and Stratus Dancer that could enable you to counter Krosan Grip are triggered abilities which trigger when the morphed card is turned face up.

It should also be noted that special actions can still go on the stack with split second as well. This means if you had a face-down Voidmage Apprentice or Stratus Dancer, you could morph it to counter the Krosan Grip when a conventional counterspell wouldn't work.

Your avg. cmc is astronomically high my man. Even with a more casual Animar deck your avg. cmc should be about 3.8 TOPS. As the deck stands, your first few counters on Animar will be very slow and inconsistent.

Sorry if that comes off as overly critical. I have several suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category and keep things budget and casual friendly (mostly).

Ramp: Rattleclaw Mystic , Shaman of Forgotten Ways , Rishkar, Peema Renegade , Wood Elves and Wild Cantor are all good options. Cloud of Faeries and Peregrine Drake are also very good here.

Bounce: Equilibrium and Cloudstone Curio are your best options but are a bit more pricey. Shrieking Drake , Dream Stalker , and Man-o'-War are great options to reuse etb's also.

Morph/Free Cast: Den Protector , Ainok Survivalist , and Stratus Dancer .
