You should use this with fantastic Cream of the Crop!

Pretty broken with Animar.

As opposed to...?

@TheWrath: A decent green deck can get 7 mana by turn 4. And with creature interaction (which green has plenty of) this can be very painful.

How about This + Aluren + Phyrexian Devourer?
Cast the creatures that cost 3 or less out of your deck, and exile the other cards. Do this at instant speed before any counters resolve and kill the Devourer.

Lots of ways to win at this point, but here is an interesting one:
Four of them should be Laboratory Maniac, and four should be Elvish Visionary.
As soon as you have at least one visionary on the stack, exile any others that come up, so that a couple Maniacs will resolve earlier and you will win the game instead of losing it.

Works quite nicely with a couple of cards in a beast deck:
Shivan Wumpus and Nulltread Gargantuan won't get you card disadvantage anymore. (If you got a Plaxmanta or something else to "bounce" for the gargantuan, your opponent will be particularly happy.)
And a Wirewood Savage lets you draw another card along with the beast you summoned.

For reference: Oracle of Mul Daya, Cream of the Crop, Magus of the Future.
I run these guys in my Intet, the Dreamer Commander deck, which is about 40% creatures, and he works wonderfully. Unlike the Magus, a 7/7 body for 7 is great to swing with, and any way of ordering the top of your library (Cream, Oracle, or Sensei's Divining Top if you're feeling spendy) he allows you to cast multiple creatures easily for an enormous card advantage.

The look on an opponent's face when on turn 8 you pop out an army small green critters is priceless. Especially when they know the turn 9 critter is going to be an Arachnus Spinner or werewolf or something else just as brutal. "Yurp, that's a purdy angel y'got thar."
