Hey big fan of the deck list. Gunna make it in paper soon. Some questions, ever think about adding Waterfront Bouncer or Stampeding Wildebeests or Temur Sabertooth to go infinite with Eternal Witness and a Time Walk effect?
Also Equilibrium and Erratic Portal do something similar but aren’t creatures so less synergy. I like Waterfront Bouncer the most out of all the options because of its low mana cost so it can contribute to your early game plan of being aggro and drawing cards and can bounce opponents hate bears and also transitions later into your combo.
Nostalgic Dreams and Skullwinder seem like very decent options too. Dreams has little downside if you’re swinging with your creatures and Skullwinder is E-Witness number 2 that requires very little play around.

Overburden rules text now reads “casts” so it’s great for slowing opponents down but it doesn’t slow you at all, simply return a tapped land, then trigger Chulane to put it back untapped.
Equilibrium is just a great bouncer to slow other players down, especially when you have Aluren out and you aren’t paying to cast creatures.
I like the list. +1

I have a couple suggestions for your consideration.
Thassa's Oracle provides an additional Lab Man effect that you can bounce back to hand when you are ready to win. It is also hard to interact with outside of counter magic. And if you want to get really competitive you could include Protean Hulk and Flash alongside it.
God-Eternal Oketra may be too slow, but she does offer a different avenue of attack (no pun intended :) ) for the deck.
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath provides lifegain, ramp, card draw and can come back over and over again
Lastly, you might consider a bit of graveyard hate since you are attempting to mill people out. Remorseful Cleric (already in your sideboard) and Scavenging Ooze are great creature options while Soul-Guide Lantern is a new great option from Theros.

I have a very similar build myself. I will say one thing that I would add to your list would be Crystal Shard. Awesome for saving your dudes from removal and sets up recasting creatures for even more etb effects. Erratic Portal and Equilibrium have similar effects. Personally, I would add all three of those and maybe cut Blood Seeker, Lotus Cobra, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth (cuts are tricky in these lists - that's just my opinion obviously). Good luck and happy brewing!

Alright, I have several suggestions for you and I don't want to appear overly critical. The main thing I'm noticing that needs work is your choice of non-creature spells... most of those effects you want on a body in Animar (i.e. ramp, removal, etc.)
Also worth asking... are you avoiding infinite combos on purpose? Want to ask before I suggest any.
Land Untap/Alternative Ramp: Cloud of Faeries and Stadium Vendors won't go infinite in your current build. Peregrine Drake will with Temur Sabertooth. On that note, consider Equilibrium as another bounce option.
Draw: Primordial Sage and Soul of the Harvest are your best repeatable draw (that you don't already run.). Tishana, Voice of Thunder is worth including also and Vizier of the Menagerie is amazing here as well.

Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down... I can help suggest cuts (mainly from your high cmc non-creatures like Doubling Season, Primal Vigor, Zendikar Resurgent and your current non-creature ramp). In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for ideas... it's not budget friendly as a whole but still got plenty of options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Your avg. cmc is astronomically high my man. Even with a more casual Animar deck your avg. cmc should be about 3.8 TOPS. As the deck stands, your first few counters on Animar will be very slow and inconsistent.
Sorry if that comes off as overly critical. I have several suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category and keep things budget and casual friendly (mostly).
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid
