PartyJ, if you are looking for more sac outlets, the two lands I just picked up survive the Child Board wipes, and can be used over and over. High Market and Miren, the Moaning Well. I also have a few clones thrown in here to help counter some of the opponents more pesky creatures or even planewalkers, nothing is better than someone casting an emrakul or some shit and you just plop out your own too. lol. it seems like you have a lot of ramp cards that search for specific lands but the only fetch-able lands you have are the shock lands. There are a couple other runs of lands that can be fetched tho, some cycling lands, aside from the original dual lands which I don't even have all a copy of all 10 of those anymore. Devotion is def a thing, and I have found that Child himself is good, but throw a Chromanticore on him and he's even better, plus thats 4 devotion to any of the 2 color god's. I see a lot of child decks on edhrec that have Maelstrom Archangel. I personally like being able to manipulate the top of my library with Sensei's Divining Top, Courser of Kruphix and the temples. plus if you don't like what you see you crack a fetch land or a tutor and get fresh cards on top to check out again. Mirri's Guile is really good in enchantress

TheErebos I goldfished about 10 games so far with your current iteration of the build, It's definitely a lot smoother now. I would say add at least two more one cmc creatures so when you have Yisan on the board you can tutor something else than just Birds of Paradise, as I recommended before maybe some mana dorks as they definitely help you in the weird occasion you don't have consistent land drops. The curve is pretty decent you stabilize around 5 lands on average which can at least play a majority of your cards.
Here are some ideas for better draws Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, or Search for Azcanta Flip (I'm thinking maybe not for this one as you don't necessarily want to mill yourself in this build). Or Mirri's Guile instead of Search for Azcanta.

I would suggest some more top deck manipulation like Scroll Rack or Sensei's Divining Top as well as cards that make effects over miracles like Temporal Manipulation. Teferi, Temporal Archmage also goes bonkers with Aminatou especially since you are running Oath of Teferi as well. Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is also quite stellar.
Hope that helps!

Some suggestions that might help.
Krark-Clan Ironworks Gains you plenty of mana and also protection from your artifacts getting exiled.
Izzet Signet Since you are running Paradox Engine it makes sense to run all the rocks
Fellwar Stone Ditto
Gilded Lotus Ditto
Mind Stone Ditto
Mana Vault Ditto
Grim Monolith Ditto
Sensei's Divining Top Staple in artifact decks
Dramatic Reversal Can lead to overwhleming advantage plus go infinite mana with Isochron and mana sources that provide 3 or more mana.
Hope that helps!

Alright, finally got to update the deck to GRN. I have been absolutely swamped with work for the past month or so but finally got the time tune my pet deck right here. The changes are:
Top I cut because oftentimes I was just unimpressed by the cards, simple as that. In this deck and in the meta I play this deck in I'd much just rather play spells from my hand than activate the top to find specific cards. Later in the game when I would have the mana to spare, I'd just much rather have straight up card draw, and that has been added to the deck in the form of Beast Whisperer. The one mana dorks were cut and replaced by Wall of Blossoms, Farhaven Elf and an extra land in order to power the deck down just a tiny bit in the early game. In my meta this Animar deck is definitely on the more powerful side, and the games that I happen to get a turn 2 Animar online it is very likely that I will run away with the game unless someone mulliganed into a dedicated hate card. Therefore I chose to power the deck down just a hair to increase the number of 'fair' games. One word on Farhaven elf, since this Animar deck has contributed to the increased number of wrath effects in my meta I chose a 'mana dork' that leaves its effect behind once the board has been cleared.
@ Frank_Glascock, I will go through your comments and reply as soon as I have the time!

I don't know if you are working off a budget or not, but when cascading, it could be helpful to know what cards are coming, so I'd offer options like Sylvan Library, Mirri's Guile, Sensei's Divining Top, and the under-utilized Soothsaying, and also Scroll Rack if there's something in your hand you want to cascade into play.

Very solid deck. I see some non-optimal choices but I presume its due to budget or flavour, like Fortress Cyclops. I do think that Skullclamp does not pull its weight in this kind of deck as you only have one token producer as far as I can see (that being Assemble the Legion). Maybe swap it out for Scroll Rack since you already have Land Tax? Or maybe even Sensei's Divining Top.

With the commander you’re using top decking obviously matters so the cards I’m gonna suggest are Aminatou, the Fateshifter, Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack and Jace, the Mind Sculptor. By no means am I suggesting you run all of them, unless you have all of them that is. Any or all will continually help you keep an odd cmc card on top of your deck.
