Siren Stormtamer can counter tormod’s crypt or even bojuka bogs

You might want to consider Brazen Borrower or Vendilion Clique. I´m gessing the mana base is on a budget. Some other card advantage you can try can be the new Sea-Dasher Octopus, the trend on Curious Obsession that everyone uses with flying creatures its old version on Curiosity or my favourite Smuggler's Copter. Other 1 mana flyers I can think of are Siren Stormtamer for more protection instead of tempo Aven Mindcensor for a bit of taxing or even Hope of Ghirapur whitch can "lock" your opponent a few turns with Vesperlark if you are lucky.

Creeping Tar Pit is a manland that does enter tapped but offers as an effective way to get through should you be out of other options.

Cards that could help protect the combo:
There is also Spiketail Drake, which is counter unless you pay if you wanted to choke the resources of opponents.
There is also a stifle creature, but you have to cycle it, so I'm not sure that it's immediately useful. Nimble Obstructionist The cycle ability can't be countered, but it's still 3 mana.
Siren Stormtamer is probably the closest you're going to get. If someone targets you to draw a card, you put this in to play with Kinnan and stifle it.
To put some of these cards in, you could probably cut Arbor Elf, as it doesn't tap for mana. Maybe the Talisman of Curiosity as you already have a very well made ramp package though dorks and other artifacts.

Warkite Marauder wouldn't really kill anything. You would attack and announce what creature would become a 0/1. Then your opponent blocks. More than likely, they will not block with the creature you just targeted. As for Siren Stormtamer, its ability would work regardless of it being your turn; however, you more than likely want to stop counterspells. Siren Stormtamer does nothing against those. It only cares about spells that target you or creatures on the field.
Thassa's Oracle also cares about more than just your creatures. Your devotion to blue is the sum of all the blue mana symbols amongst the mana costs of the permanents that you control. This includes Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.
Now, Dig Through Time... Let's say that over the first couple turns you cast 2 Opts and have milled a few of your cards. Dig Through Time allows you to exile those card from your graveyard to cast it. That's what the delve ability allows you to do. Ideally, when you use Inverter of Truth your graveyard is small and filled with useful cards (like Opt). You want a small graveyard, so you can cast Thassa's Oracle and win on the spot or use Jace to win on the spot. If you need to make your deck smaller after you invert, you can use Opt to find what you need in your deck while taking a card out.
You don't want to play Thassa's Oracle unless you are winning the game from it or are following up with a second Thassa's Oracle for a win. Dig Through Time reduces the size of your graveyard and helps you pick and choose what cards you want in it. That way when you invert, your better set up to win. Not to mention that Dig Through Time helps you dig through your deck to find the cards you need.

Perhaps Warkite Marauder or Siren Stormtamer? With Warkite Marauder I can kill practically any creature with it with its ability that says "target creature defending player controls loses all abilities and has base power and toughness 0/1 until end of turn.". Siren Stormtamer would be a useful counterspell, but i don't know if its counter ability only resolves on my turn. I had forgotten that Thassa's Oracle is a creature. And how would exiling one Opt spell cause me to be able to play Dig Through Time? And Thassa's Oracle only resolves once it enters the battlefield, so any creatures after I cast it would be pointless.
Also, thanks, Geo67! <3

I've seen talk on Discord that, in the face of cards like Notion Thief and Narset, Parter of Veils being more prominent these days, people have been cutting back on cantrip creatures in the deck. I'm not sure how I feel about that, since cantrip creatures contribute a lot to the storm-like aspect of the deck. People seem to drop Sea Gate Oracle and Raven Familiar pretty frequently, but those actually get around Narset and Thief. Wall of Blossoms is also a card that a lot of people feel ok cutting, so swapping that out for Loyal Drake is an option.
People seem to have mixed opinions on Siren Stormtamer. That could possibly be replaced with Fierce Guardianship. You run back into the discussion regarding the value of 1 cmc creatures in Animar with that one though.
There's the question of if you need a second recursion card in the form of Den Protector if you could just replace it with a free counterspell like Fierce Guardianship to help protect your stuff to begin with. Although, being able to flip it at instant speed to get Fierce Guardianship back for a second cast is pretty nice.
Animar's list has gotten pretty tight by this point. Cuts are hard.

Rather than Censor, I'd be more inclined to use Stubborn Denial -- Same effect for one mana less, and if you end up putting in a creature finisher like Dream Trawler you get it without the condition -- That said, Censor has cycling, which is always good. In the same vein, Spell Pierce has that same cost-based negation but for one more mana.
Only other thing to consider is getting to the seven mana you need for Second Sun and being able to reach it seven cards deep -- Scry is an obvious route, the Castle Vantress you have there supporting that, things like Witching Well and Omen of the Sea that scry two or more on the cheap. Chart a Course and Artificer's Epiphany/Catalog/Divination/Thirst for Meaning are straight draw, while the big daddy is Sphinx's Revelation, though I'm not sure how that plays in the Pioneer format.
