Animar, Soul of Elements has a lot going for him. First, he's cheap. Don't underestimate the value of a cheap commander. Not only can you get a cheap commander out earlier, but you also will be able to cast him/her a couple extra times. Second, he has built in protection. Pro white and pro black protects Animar from a lot removal. And finally, he's powerful and easy to build around. All you gotta do is cast creatures, and in a deck with 51 creatures, that won't be a problem.
Some commander themes really require you to jump through hoops but a majority of this deck is just generally good creatures. There are a few that play into Animar's theme specifically, however. In the place of utility spells I used utility creatures. For example, cards like Birds of Paradise, Farhaven Elf, and Somberwald Sage provide mana. While Archivist, Consecrated Sphinx, Soul of the Harvest, and Primordial Sage draw cards. Card draw is especially important because if all goes according to plan you'll be throwing down multiple creatures a turn. Check it out!
