Artifact Creature — Shapeshifter
Imprint - When Duplicant enters the battlefield, you may remove target nontoken creature from the game. (The removed card is imprinted on this artifact.)
As long as a creature card is imprinted on Duplicant, Duplicant has the power, toughness, and creature types of the last creature card imprinted on it. It's still a Shapeshifter.

This looks great for your first deck! Very synergistic and well balanced. I have a couple of suggestions: Ghost Town, Gruul Turf and Harrow are great at enabling more landfall triggers, they might be good inclusions.
Sundering Vitae will usually be a 0-1 mana version of Naturalize.
You currently have very few ways to interact with creatures. Just having a few tools at your disposal would be useful though. Consider Beast Within, Volcanic Offering, Song of the Dryads, Ulvenwald Tracker or Duplicant.

Hey! A new deck, eh? Man, I'm really getting rusted since I'm playing less now due to work.
Well, looking at the deck, as I always suggest, try to keep the land count around 35-40.
I'm not sure if the commanders are there to do something for the deck or just give you the colors. If they are just for the colors, better have only one commander since you are loosing a spot. Maybe Sen Triplets or Dromar, the Banisher.
If they are there to be useful in the toolbox deck, then maybe it would be better to have the toolbox part of the deck made with creatures and artifacts since both commanders recover cards from your graveyard, and Instants and Sorceries are just one shot cards. There are ton of creatures that are answers, with a lot of good Enter the Battlefield abilities that you can exploit with Deadeye Navigator, Eldrazi Displacer and Panharmonicon.
Some ideas for a deck like that: Duplicant, Reflector Mage, Notion Thief, Perplexing Chimera, Massacre Wurm, Sower of Temptation, Frost Titan, Baleful Strix, Sunblast Angel Null Rod, Mana Web, Tormod's Crypt, Spine of Ish Sah.
I suggest you the creature based approach of control because I've tried to play control with just spells and it just doesn't work. You can't keep control over 3 players all the time unless you are a mono U Teferi stax/combo deck. That's why it's better to have creatures. At least, they are a body for blocking, and they open a window to add combos to close the game.

Looks like a fun variation on a totally busted commander :) Got a few ideas.. I'm surprised you didn't include Rosheen Meanderer over something like Cultivate just because its a creature that can pump Animar. Not sure if you know about how Ancestral Statue goes infinite with Animar by self bouncing, that seems like an easy include. Vizier of the Menagerie should be amazing in this deck with so many creatures to cast off the top. Primal Vigor has potential to make your hydras much more formidable. Gruul Ragebeast could be great too. Colorless cards like Sandstone Oracle, Duplicant, and Artisan of Kozilek are in most Animar builds too. Happy Gathering!

Bloom Tender is great if you got the cash. It went way up after 4c legends dropped. If you can Clone-effect an opponent's creature... it taps for up to 5 mana. Clever Impersonator is fun if you like Altered Ego. Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Seedborn Muse are two in have in my rashmi deck
+1 from me! Feel free to check out some of my decks for ideas. A couple are outdated on here vs paper version but still appreciate the +1s

Herald of Leshrac is heavy on mana but is some super-secret tech that dunks on midrange and control decks. Grave Titan is also above the curve you were asking for, but it's worth mentioning because of how powerful it is.
The other thing to think about are the larger infect creatures, which are Phyrexian Crusader, Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon, Phyrexian Juggernaut, and Phyrexian Vatmother. You lose the ability to win via normal damage and life loss, but you gain creatures that are really efficient for their mana cost.
Distended Mindbender and Abundant Maw are also reasonable when combined with things like Solemn Simulacrum. Speaking of Eldrazi, don't forget the plethora of colorless creatures that you can jam into your mono-black deck. That includes stuff like Wurmcoil Engine, Duplicant, Grid Monitor, Silent Arbiter, Scuttling Doom Engine, and Steel Hellkite.

You are off to a good start for a sliver deck, but as an Animar deck it could be improved upon. Generally Animar runs about 60 creatures, almost every card possible is a creature to synergize with him. You can replace a bunch of the non creatures with creature cards that do similar things. For card draw, mana dorks, and removal use cards like Tower Geist, Regal Force, Raven Familiar, Somberwald Sage, Rattleclaw Mystic, Birds of Paradise, Man-o'-War, Flametongue Kavu, Duplicant, etc. I don't have an animar deck any more but it often went infinite with Ancestral Statue bouncing itself or kiki/twin + Pestermite or Cloudstone Curio + 2x eldrazi. Shrieking Drake can self bounce to pump animar. Morphs are great because face down they count as a 3 cmc colorless creature. What makes these decks tier one is mana dorks to help cast Animar turn 2, infinite combos, and the top notch creature tutor power possible in green. If you lean in that direction it might help you in your new more competitive playgroup. Happy gathering!

This feels like a really low creature count for an Animar deck, I must say.
Some default inclusions are also absent - cards like Ancestral Statue, which lets you make Animar huge (since you just keep returning and recasting Statue). I think you could add more eldrazi as well, like Conduit of Ruin and Oblivion Sower. Solemn Simulacrum and Duplicant are excellent value-adds too.
