Need Creature Suggestions for Animar Stax

Commander Deck Help forum

Posted on Nov. 26, 2017, 10:44 p.m. by theindigoeffect

I have 35 lands, 15 card draw creatures and 20 ramp creatures: all my creatures perform some kind of function, and I prefer to rely solely on creatures to maintain synergy.

I know that stax generally has a different meaning when it comes to deck composition, but I'm really just looking for oppressive creatures that lock down the board/disrupt board states and ultimately allow me to swing in for big damage.

Cards like Kheru Spellsnatcher are okay, but the high morph cost defeats the purpose of using Animar, Soul of Elements in the first place, and the counterspell effect doesn't really lock down the board.

To give you an idea of what I'm looking for, here's what I already have:

Tidespout Tyrant, Urabrask the Hidden, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Void Winnower, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and Bearer of the Heavens.

Without knowing what all you have in there already, might I suggest the zendikar eldrazi? Animar can potentially get their casting cost down to 0, and when you're swinging with, for example, ulamig the infinite gyre, that annihlator is extremely oppressive. Saccing perms doesn't leave much for answers

Sorry for the delay in my response, but your suggestions are great! I didn't expect so many.
