Amazing with cards like Equilibrium and Intruder Alarm. I used to use this guy in my Mirage/Tempest standard (type II) Prodigal Sorcerer deck (there were 3 legal prodigal sorcerer remakes at the time, including the great Suq-Ata Firewalker). Combine with Quirion Dryad, Birds of Paradise or, for mono-blue, Sea Scryer for infinite damage (or mana if you use a second mana-creature instead of sorcerer).

Another piece of the infinite Aluren combo with Animar. You can also use Man-o'-War or Aether Adept.

Single-handedly triggers Vengevine: Cast Shrieking Drake, return itself, repeat. Vines will need to be Pathed/Plowed to be removed as a threat, otherwise they're back every turn.

Animar, Soul of Elements?

breaking the game since mirage block. I've played this lately in combination with:
genesis chamber
intruder alarm
silver myr
viridian longbow

for reasonably nasty results

Far, far better than it looks, given that it looks like a complete dog when you first read it. Combos well with a variety of things. Of course it's hardly a Psychatog but it's one of those nice, simple cards with a lot of subtle applications.

Good sinergy with Stormfront Riders.

Combos pretty well with mono blue sorcery speed storm

+1 storm count per blue mana.

Thus fairly easy to brainstorm for 15.

Not the best combo, just pointing out some synergy.

This card has its applications, particularly when used in concert with creatures that have "come into play" abilities like Wood Elves and Wall of Blossoms.

This guy gets pretty stupid with Animar out. Or, I should say Animar gets pretty stupid with him out.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
