Updated version of my comment about the possible combos
Also here are the possible combos
3)in case of no Mirran Spy just replace the Nettle Drone /Cathartic Adept / Screeching Sliver with Reckless Fireweaver and start bouncing the artifact as normal for infinite damage. Same can achieved with Grapeshot but after the infinite bouncing of the artifact

Here's my list for a mono blue modern legal version. Feel free to incorporate any of these cards.

I like this combo mainly because of the flexibility in the cards you can combo off with. One 0 mana artifact (Welding Jar probably being the best, Herbal Poultice, or the creatures), one creature that untaps when the artifact ETBs (there are 5 different creatures that do this: Battered Golem, Nettle Drone, Zephyr Scribe if you use a non-creature artifact, Traxos, Scourge of Kroog which is also a wincon on its own, and Mirran Spy), one card that has an ability that triggers whenever a permanent, artifact or creature if you use them enters the battlefield (Molten Nursery, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, or Nettle Drone does it as well), and Retraction Helix or Banishing Knack.
I think that adding red gives you some good options like Nettle Drone and Molten Nursery. I also think that you should run on average 6 of each of the combo pieces. Welding Jar and Herbal Poultice I think are better than Ornithopter and Memnite as they protect the combo. This is probably better than the nut draw of getting the combo out on turn 3.

Animar as a commander nearly negates all colorless costs on all of the creatures, leading Mana Vault/Sol Ring/Mana Crypt and the other such effects to be a waste of a card slot, and the instants, artifacts, sorceries and enchantments can be paid for easily by the dorks and lands. Chrome Mox is already being run, and Mox Diamond is only meh in this build, 30 lands is a bit to little to run Mox Diamond
Tooth and Nail is a waste of mana, mana that you won't get a competitive table.
Aetherflux Reservoir is a much worse win outlet than either of the other options, Altar of the Brood, Impact Tremors, etc. are all much better in terms of mana, but none of those are good, because they can't be tutored for. Reckless Fireweaver is a much better option, though sadly it doesn't work outside of the Ancestral Statue, otherwise it'd be better than the other options being run.
Crop Rotation is quite powerful, but I don't think it is a second Gaea's Cradle powerful, yes it can tutor, but that means it has a cost, and it is a blowout when it gets countered early on my a Mental Misstep. Things like that are probably why it doesn't deserve a spot.
Palinchron is already run

Okay, so, speaking of combos...there's a lot of lines missing, in my opinion. Plus, too many missed opportunities for tutors that can win game for you. And a complete lack of mana rocks. Which, I get, is kinda the whole point of Animar, Soul of Elements. But what do you do against someone's turn one Torpor Orb? Or someone's turn two Nevermore?
A Panharmonicon would probably go over really well in this deck.
And I would probably add another land or two to the deck. 30 with almost no rocks is risky. My decks run 33 with a lot of rocks, and still sometimes can hit trouble. But if the number has worked for you so far, keep at it. Because if I could go with less lands, I would.

Hei i've been trying to build arount the combo.How do you feel about Mirran Spy instead of Zephyr Scribe this allows u to play the Spy, use an helix on Reckless Fireweaver and use the trigger from the Spy to untap the weaver allowing to go off one turn earlier?Also as a non-budget upgrad, lotus petal works as a 0 cmc artifact and mana ramp, allowing you to go off on turn 3 with a good hand

I agree that the extra toughness on Mirran Spy is definitely a plus but I did not exactly catch your idea about the summoning sickness. The thing I like better about Zephyr Scribe is that it may help you loot the library for your extra combo cards, actually.
