Myronson I like the deck build.
With elves ramping into more ramping elves and creating a snowball effect with your mana base, I personally think you can do without the mana rocks.
Fauna Shaman is a good way to find the creatures that you need to help set up your plays, in exchange for discarding a creature.
Prime Speaker Vannifar is another way to get your pieces straight on to the board by sacking a creature. The main drawback is that you will need a turn for her to overcome her sickness. If you can find a way to continually untap her to abuse her sac ability, you can make your way to the Hulk.

I wonder if Incubation Druid would be better than Priest of Titania here - especially if I also run Neoform? To me it feels like a possible combo piece that is easy to activate with Neoform or Kenrith is better than something that never can go infinit in our deck, especially since the Druid will reliably give 3 mana when activated, where the Priest is much more conditional. And I was wondering, why Pemmin's Aura isn't in here as a backup for Freed.

Ok, this is for your combo build...
Neoform is also an option to combo out (Animar's absolute best combo line) but it NEEDS Imperial Recruiter, Spellseeker, Walking Ballista and Phyrexian Metamorph. It needs only 4 life, , 2 counters on Animar, and Imperial Recruiter in hand.
Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph. Metamorph for 2 life copies Recruiter and looks up Spellseeker. Spellseeker looks up Neoform. Neoform sacs Spellseeker to look up Ancestral Statue. Bounce Statue over and over until Animar is double your opponents life totals and use the final bounce to return Metamorph to hand. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.

Love this deck. Definitely a +1 from me. I love the idea and the uniqueness of it.
It seems like the stars of the show are the Nephilem. That being said, I'd recommend more creature tutors that can out them into play like Tooth and Nail, Green Sun's Zenith,Chord of Calling, Eldritch Evolution, Neoform, and Wild Pair.
All the kindred cards as well as the banner will help you multiply those Myr as well as gain value off of them before you can land a couple Nephilem!

Alright, so right off the bat it's a pretty strong deck with lots of synergy but is lacking big payoffs or interaction which means you'll struggle to do much against combos. As a creature-based deck you're also naturally weak to board wipes and removal.
We can start by improving the mana base: 24 is probably the right number considering the Reefs, and looking at the stats it looks like what you want early are Forests and Mountains. I'd definitely recommend Cinder Glade/Sheltered Thicket due to their having the basic subtypes, so can be utilised alongside both the reveal (Game Trail)) and check (Rootbound Crag/Hinterland Harbor) lands. Unclaimed Territory gives you all three colours but will get slightly worse if you start including more non-creature spells, while Lumbering Falls seems pretty good for you what with being an Elemental and all. Finally there are the shock lands and a strict upgrade to Evolving Wilds in Fabled Passage but they cost money. Ps you want to put "ZEN" in the square brackets after the lands of you want them show up as those lovely original Zendikar ones.
Ok, with that out of the way, we can take a look at the creatures. I maintain that a single Omnath, Locus of Rage is the best top end you can have here, as he'll do silly things with all your lands entering and if anyone tried to wrath your board they'll probably just end up killing themselves! Also two copies of his latest incarnation (Omnath, Locus of the Roil) again gives you some damage to ping around and some card draw. Undergrowth Champion is a beast, and the Cavalier cycle might be worth looking into as well. I think you can easily afford to cut some creatures in order to get other spells in - maybe down to 28? Stuff I'm thinking of would be Temur Battle Rage, Growth Spiral, Neoform, Hadana's Climb Flip, and Retreat to Kazandu.
Finally there's your sideboard, if you want to get into that for the paper version. Here you'd probably want to consider Plasm Capture, Broken Bond, Cindervines, Shapers' Sanctuary, Rhythm of the Wild, 2 Pithing Needles or Sorcerous Spyglasss and maybe a single Chandra, Awakened Inferno.

Great deck! Has long been my favorite of the lab maniacs decks and I have been developing my own version parallel to yours for a long time except I still run Freed from the Real combos and it is more budget friendly. My question is why I haven't seen you test Reap before which I have found to be very impactful at any point in the game. Also, what kind of combo density is appropriate for the goals of this deck? I also run Phantasmal Image and Palinchron as the tutors such as Neoform run parallel between that combo and freed lines, but I wonder if I have lost focus from the control elements to create more winning conditions. Lastly, Any news on more from you guys? Busy lives I know, but are you going to be playing Tasigur, the Golden Fang more this season?
