Great Whale Discussion

I'll try to keep things budget friendly... I think two of my suggestions are like $7-10.
Weird Harvest currently looks up Ancestral Statue and Purphoros for with 3 counters on Animar for the win. Spellseeker can look up Weird Harvest for one more. The preferred line here replaces Purphoros with Walking Ballista (try to trade for one) and costs one less.

I get that you're going the Primal Surge route, but for mana less you can...
Weird Harvest into Ancestral Statue / Walking Ballista and it only takes 4 mana and 3 counters on Animar to win. Add 1 mana and you can tutor up the win with Spellseeker . Add 1 more mana and you can tutor up Spellseeker to tutor up the win with Imperial Recruiter . Even Imperial into Spellseeker into Weird Harvest is less, just sayin.

Nice deck. I do have several suggestions though.
First, Weird Harvest can win the game with only 4 mana and 3 counters on Animar. It essentially Tooth and Nails for Walking Ballista and Ancestral Statue. Add Spellseeker to the mix to tutor up Weird Harvest and win with 5 mana and 2 counters on Animar (3rd counter coming from Spellseeker).
Last group of suggestions is haste enablers like Urabrask the Hidden and/or Ogre Battledriver . Not only is all of your stuff an immediate threat but haste also turns all of your mana dorks into Cloudstone combo pieces like Beastcaller Savant already is.

I'm going to make several suggestions but the most glaringly obvious thing that needs work is lowering your mana curve a lot. Currently your avg. cmc is 4.74, which quite frankly is astronomically high. Your deck costs 308 mana currently... it should be about a full mana less (about 70 mana less).
Blightsteel Colossus, Emrakul, Garruk's Horde, Hamletback Goliath, Hoverguard Sweepers, Meteor Golem, Increasing Savagery, and Rishkar's Expertise should all be cut. I'm also not a fan of Jin-Gitaxias or Vorinclex here but more because I feel they're a dick move that's really not needed here. Nezahal and Consecrated Sphinx are both lackluster here as well. If you have to pass turn to get value or rely on your opponents to trigger stuff then it's not for Animar, you need to look for rewards for your own actions.
Ainok Survivalist , Den Protector , and Stratus Dancer are your 3 best morph options here and they also go infinite in Cloudstone combos. Cloud of Faeries , Great Whale , and Stadium Vendors are all infinite mana with Cloudstone. Also consider Equilibrium and/or Temur Sabertooth for another bounce enabler here. Shrieking Drake reads - spend X blue: put x +1+1 counters on Animar. Last I'm suggesting a few cards for a game ending combo line... Weird Harvest to look up Ancestral Statue + either Walking Ballista or Purphoros, God of the Forge and end the game. Ballista is the preferred finisher here and only requires 4 mana and 3x +1+1 counters on Animar (Purph needs a 5th mana but same # of counters). Also consider Spellseeker to tutor it, glimpse of nature, or ryclonic rift up.

I have a few suggestions.
Weird Harvest is much more cost effective here than Tooth and Nail. Search up Ancestral Statue and Purporos currently for 4 mana then combo off with a 5th mana. The preferred finisher here is Walking Ballista so you only need 4 mana (both only need 3x counters on Animar). Also Spellseeker as a 2nd chance to get this combo going.
Beastcaller Savant goes infinite in Cloudstone combos due to the haste. Haste also turns any other mana dorks into Cloudstone combo pieces, consider Urabrask the Hidden and Ogre Battledriver in addition to Wanderer.

Vizier of the Menagerie is Chromatic Lantern on steroids here. Worth it just for the color fixing let alone the pseudo draw.
Exotic Orchard is a budget friendly land that deserves a spot.

Did you guys know there are only six Whales in the whole game, and literally HALF of them have or can gain flying??
Whales you control have Vigilance.
Whenever Living Island or another Whale you control attacks, you may return a number of permanents to their owner's hands equal to the number of Whales you are attacking with.
You have no maximum handsize.
More unlikely tribal!!
