Vizier of the Menagerie Discussion

I chose Arbok for Vizier simply because they're both cobras. It's a simple alter but the face area had a lot of detail in a small space so that was sorta tricky.
The foil-peel land turned out nice. I like it a lot better than the printouts with painted edges, and the foil peel was easier to do too. I'm going to redo the other land alters in foil-peel style as well. The peeled pokemon card is not glued to the MtG card, they're just in the sleeve together, so I can pull the peel out if an in-game situation requires that.

king-saproling: Great to see you're open to critique. The change made it a lot better, well done.
I've tried to come up with some cards you might like here:
Vizier of the Menagerie might be fun, and it could represent Gardevoir maybe (this is speaking art wise. I have not much current knowledge about pokemon.) Playing a morph from the top seems good. Also, a weird card that works good with morph is Species Gorger . It can bounce a morph and make your opponent wonder if it's the one you replayed is the same or another one. Pokemon wise, Swampert maybe?

There are some cards that let you play off the top of your library that I would count as card draw: Radha, Heart of Keld , Oracle of Mul Daya , Courser of Kruphix , Elsha of the Infinite , Realmwalker , Vizier of the Menagerie .
Some impulse draw you're missing: Bell Borca, Spectral Sergeant , Dark-Dweller Oracle , Chandra, Torch of Defiance , Showdown of the Skalds , Theater of Horrors , Apex of Power , Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip, Ignite the Future , Jeska's Will , Magmatic Channeler , Soulfire Eruption , Valakut Exploration .

A continuation of my previous comment: Courser of Kruphix, Mul Daya Channelers an Vizier of the Menagerie also like the top card of my library. All the fetchlands and other cards like Evolving Wilds and Myriad Landscape also let me shuffle my library if the top cards are bad.

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.
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

Thank you for your incredibly detailed breakdown! You might be honored to know that I have seen your deck, it helped me a lot in making this one! Because of your deck I was able to get a clear direction and you have also introduced me to my favorite card Vizier of the Menagerie. It is adorable.
Seeing as I have both of you confused of my inclusion of Darksteel Sentinel I will remove it. I saw it on a forum for "best mutate targets" while I was looking for such. No problems, I think I have decided to go with Future Sight as its replacement. The striking accolade of "best card in my deck" really stood out. I also really, really like Momir Vig, Simic Visionary but wow, that is really good - maybe too good.
Thanks for all your help, your deck list is certainly the first I will go to if some of my cards here don't work out according to plan. Have a great day!
