Nice deck. I do have a few suggestions, most aren't really budget friendly but still good cards to work up to over time.
Some of these are admittedly low hanging fruit that I'm guessing you're already aware of but... Palinchron, Bloom Tender, Earthcraft, Glimpse of Nature, Sylvan Library, Maelstrom Wanderer, Glen Elendra Archmage, Stratus Dancer, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Heroic Intervention, Somberwald Sage, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper), and Eldrazi Titans.
As far as cuts, I'd mainly suggest cutting Vorinclex, Jin Gitaxias, Kederekt Leviathan, and Consecrated Sphinx. These cards just typically come down a bit late to matter in an Animar list and Sphinx requires you to pass the turn to get value, you'd be better off with Tishana, Voice of Thunder in its place here. and several of your non creature spells like Wildest Dreams, Sylvan Scrying, Gilded Lotus, Mask of Avacyn, and Whispersilk Cloak. Also, who is your target for Flamekin Harbinger?
Anyways, feel free to check out my list, mines less combo and more of a combo/aggro hybrid. Animar, Angry Hemorrhoid

Nice deck! I play tested it against my own Mina & Denn deck. I had no idea Manabond was a card. Also didn't realize how crazy sack outlets for you elementals are. I noticed a few things though:
Maybe include a Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx? Although your creature count isn't that high, you'd be surprised how nice the few extra mana can be (also more food for you wave of vitriol).
Also, it seems like you have almost no draw outlets. Adding any of Harmonize, Life's Legacy, Shamanic Revelation, Collective Unconscious, Garruk's Packleader, Regal Force, Soul of the Harvest and Tireless Tracker will help you get all the cards you need to win really fast.
You have a ton of really terrifying 'destroy everything' cards, but most of them cost 5+ mana and if you have multiple of them in your hand you I noticed the return on the extras was not the most exciting. Maybe try switching out one or two for cheaper cards like Song of the Dryads or Beast Within? Then you can also cast them for free with Rishkar's Expertise too.
Finally, if you want an extra copy of any elemental in your deck, Flamekin Harbinger is a lot of fun.
Love this deck though. You got some great combos. :D

Nova Chaser is pretty cool - use Flamekin Harbinger to tutor for, then Champion the Harbinger so when Nova Chaser dies, you can use the Harbinger again! Also, Nova Chaser makes a great target for Fling! Granted, it's a little pricey.

@br_dude: Thank you, I'm glad you like it.I set my deck budget for ultra budget decks according to other ultra budget decks on this site to below 50$. Unfortunately one or two updates pushed the deck price a little over that.The main cost factor here is Manamorphose I guess, but it's too valuable to reduce them. I'm thinking about exchanging Thing in the Ice Flip with cards from the maybe board, but I'm not sure yet. Nova Chaser works too well with the Flamekin Harbinger to ditch it, I think.

No problem! Some other cards i'd consider putting in are Hell's Thunder as a another type of Ball Lightning, Titan's Strength to pump your guys and filter your draws, and seeing as most of your creatures are elementals, both Flamekin Harbinger and Nova Chaser could be interesting!

SirSh4ggy i do intend on running the elemental theme still, and so far i have been able to consistently play a Flamekin Harbinger turn one, which lets me fetch a Nova Chaser, then turn two i play a Brighthearth Banneret, allowing for a turn 3 Nova Chaser. and when it gets wither it becomes a notable threat, especially if i have Nest of Scarabs out, which makes him far more dangerous to block. i may try adding Ashling, the Extinguisher back into the deck, but it still seems solid as is.
