Every Animar deck needs an Ancestral Statue . It's cloudstone Curio, but better. Also, I would suggest Cunning Evasion over Temur Sabertooth . Also, I dislike Riptide Entrancer as more often than not if it is something worth stealing it is going to be bigger than a 2/2 morph and you won't actually get any combat damage through.

I would suggest Cunning Evasion over Temur Sabertooth . That would, however, remove a creature, and I don’t know how much importance you are placing on that.

Also, every Animar deck should have Ancestral Statue in it, as it is a one card combo with animar. You just have to have 4 or more counters on animar and you can bounce the statue infinitely to your hand. The same thing can be accomplished with Cloudstone Curio and a morph.

Looks like a super solid build. You might like Heroic Intervention or Teferi's Protection for protecting against removal, especially board wipes. Other cards you might consider trying out include Temur Sabertooth , Lapse of Certainty , Sun Titan , Qasali Pridemage , Blade of Selves , Uncage the Menagerie , Fleetfoot Panther , Somberwald Sage

Hi CommanderPatsy

What purpose does Temur Sabertooth serve? Any combo, synergy or meta choice for its inclusion?

Cloudstone Curio isn't there as a tutor target (although it can be if it wins the game), especially since only one card in the deck can tutor for it ( Enlightened Tutor ), but rather because it has just as many combo applications as Temur Sabertooth , so it's one card that offers many more potential combos.

I was probably going to try Ranger-Captain of Eos soon anyway, so it's good to know that you've had success with it.

While Storm Seeker sounds funny, I can't think of a single scenario in which I would want it, so I don't ever see myself playing it.

Penance seems like too cute of an interaction with Selvala and not nearly enough upside. a) It doesn't let you win without passing priority, because you still need to untap Selvala somehow, and that would require passing priority, and b) if your opponents receive priority, they almost always will have a way to stop you (because they are drawing their entire deck.

I'm not entirely sure why I'm not running Sylvan Library , I guess it just never made it's way into my deck. I'll probably throw it in sometime.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Someone pointed out the Dockside Extortionist and Temur Sabertooth combo on my Korvold deck, sound spicy?

GhostChieftain I can sre mass land destruction and doing nothing else being annoying.

We can agree to disagree about the Board wipe recovery. That same deck that cant recover from back to back board wipes doesn't need to be re-thought on choices.

Probably just a bad deck for 6 player games with back to back board wipes, mixed with politics, amd a stupid game called mafia (the required game to play because it makes games faster.. ) any deck imo can be null playing in that environment.

To your advice though. In mono green how would you add recursion and more resilient creatures? I have a mono green Wurm Tribal that does well in groups of 3 or less but above that it doesnt recover once board wipes and politics go in play. I do keep Kamahl, Fist of Krosa in the deck to make them kill their lands if they board wipe but that is just one card. I did have Temur Sabertooth but it wasn't that effective or I didn't play it right.
