Great list! You should definitelly include Ancestral Statue, he just goes on infinite etb if your Animar is on 4 counters as you cast him!

Animar, Soul of Elements and Ancestral Statue have a punishing exile combo with Thought Harvester so long as Animar has over 4 counters!

Ancestral Statue targets itself with its etb and goes infinite with Animar due to eventually costing nothing to cast. Primordial Sage type draw and Palinchron type land untap you want as much of as possible. This deck does better the more you're able to juggle mana and card draw and this is the reason people have suggested Tidespout Tyrant, so you can abuse etb/cast triggers over and over.

Sorry it took me so long to get back to you on your suggestions.

  • Primordial Sage - I actually just dropped this for Beast Whisperer for the lower CMC.
  • Beastcaller Savant - This is replacing Farhaven Elf immediately, I forgot about this guy for whatever reason even though I run him in another deck. Great catch.
  • Selvala, Heart of the Wilds - love this card and will be finding a home for her
  • Ancestral Statue - I like the idea of having a card to return creatures to my hand, but I think I want to find something that has an activation cost, so I can abuse it as opposed to just a single ETB effect. But you got my motor going with this suggestion.
  • Cloud of Faeries/Great Whale/Palinchron - I'm eventually going to replace Peregrine Drake with Palinchron one of these days, I'm not sure I want to run more than one of these types of creatures just because I have so many other awesome stuff I don't want to sacrifice for it, but I'm going to keep the other suggestions in mind, this deck will be forever elvolving.
  • Fierce Empath - For whatever reason, I've never really liked this card, don't know why. But the fact I can cast it for 1 mana and get any of my big fatties is really nice. It will probably find a home eventually, just need to decide what I'm willing to lose first.
  • Tishana, Voice of Thunder - This card was in my original build and eventually got cut to help lower the average CMC and make way for other ideas. I really like the card, and I'm almost certain I will be putting her back in soon.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I'll be taking a look at your deck today.

Primordial Sage, Beastcaller Savant, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Ancestral Statue, Cloud of Faeries, Great Whale, Palinchron, Fierce Empath, and Tishana, Voice of Thunder all deserve spots here. All are cheap too excluding Selvala and Palinchron. Feel free to check out my list for ideas, Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid feedback, upvotes, and/or ideas on any of my lists is appreciated.

Wait, what is the interaction between Damping Sphere and Ancestral Statue + Animar, Soul of Elements? Does Animar affect Sphere's additional cost, and if so, do they counter each other out for a turn?
