Love it +1 from me! Animar is my favorite as well
Shrieking Drake is another good animar tech card. Rather than dump ALL your resources on the table in one swing - opening yourself up to a boardwipe - you can instead bounce Shrieking Drake to it's own ability to build up +1/+1 counters
Please take a minute to check out my animar deck and tell me what you think!

Hey, by adding Shrieking Drake you can infinite combo with Cloud of Faeries + Yarok. With minimum of four lands Shrieking + Cloud is unlimited casts of each of these creatures which equals infinite mana from tapping and untapping your lands. Want at least four lands because Shrieking + Cloud costs three mana with four lands you're increasing at least one mana each iteration from Cloud.
With infinite mana and the ability of bouncing any creature with Shrieking then you can add lots of creatures to this combo that have an ETB to get a lot of value. Adding any of the two drop creatures who draw when it ETB will draw your entire deck and allow you cast all the other creatures/cards in your deck. Coiling Oracle lets you put all non land cards into your hand and all the rest of your lands onto the battlefield.
Good luck with your deck.

What to do with the other 2cmc? Could always go with Essence Warden for infinite life.
Good luck! Animar is my favorite!

Shrieking Drake + Doubling Season = instant win in combo with it. I usually like to also have Sneaky Nissa, Voice of Zendikar or Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury sending over unsuspecting tokens to assign +1/+1's on to another important things. My usual combo win is just with Sage of Hours + Walking Ballista.

Destiny Spinner is a great addition to protect your creatures and enchantments while having a decent active to boot. Earthcraft is also massive if you want to storm off because you can tap Shrieking Drake and your other bounces for land untaps before it bounces itself. Finale of Devastation is also an incredible finisher once you generate a decent amount of mana while still being a nice tutor.

Great deck, not sure it's "casually competitive" at this point because this is near most cEDH decks out there, mine included. Just a few suggestions: Earthcraft is great in the deck with Shrieking Drake and other bounces because you can tap drake before it bounces itself to go infinite with just an island. Deafening Silence is incredibly strong because we are creature heavy. Ranger-Captain of Eos provides a silence effect while tutoring Shrieking Drake. Intruder Alarm is insane and opens up easy combos with your mana dorks. I also like Destiny Spinner because it protects almost half the deck and has a decent active ability to boot. I have other suggestions but I'm not sure exactly what advice you want. You can check out my primer here to see other cards: [Primer] Chulane's Bounce House [cEDH]

An area to ponder about improving is the the high avg. CMC which is 3.7. Currently here for ramp there's only seven reliable additional mana sources (Sol, Talismans, Wood Elves, Springbloom and Reach) which is low. What I mean by reliable are cards that don't require you to have another card to be ramp. Burgeoning, Azusa, Coiling, Risen, Uro are all good cards, but to be ramp sources they require that you either have a land in your hand or a land on top of your library which is not reliable.
Mystic Remora is a powerful one drop in multiplayer Commander. It's not ramp, but it helps as a way to keep making land drops because it will draw you a lot of cards. Dream Stalker can be a backup for Shrieking Drake for the combo. You have a backup for Cloud of Faeries, but don't have one for Shrieking.
Cards to consider adding to reduce the avg. CMC:
Cards to consider cutting to reduce the avg. CMC:
Plague is a nine drop, In Garruk's Wake is another nine drop and is better for this effect. Sire and Bonds have good triggered abilities with Yarok, but they only trigger when your opponents do something. This makes both of them in my opinion the least good of the five/six drops since you don't want to have to rely on your opponents to get value from a five/six drop. Splendid Reclamation is good with Scapeshift, but that's really it since you've cut mill and The Gitrog Monster.
