Stratus Dancer Discussion

Possible Enlightened Ascetic for flavor in side if you see a lot of enchentments.
I really like Stratus Dancer in something like this too. its not really expected. Maybe in side vs slower decks. It's a good monk control card
Jeskai Infiltrator Just looks fun

I also recently made a Primal Surge deck (with a different commander but the principal is the same). Since you don't have instant or sorceries you might want to consider morph spells like Willbender or Stratus Dancer.
Since you're in black, Shriekmaw would serve you well here
Here is my deck for reference (/shameless self promotion):

How's the deck been going? I'm only noticing one problem, 15/46 of your creatures cost 6+ mana. This can cause some clunky early games when you're looking for those first few counters on Animar. This is almost 1/3 of your creatures and even in Animar it should be closer to 1/5.
I'd suggest finding room for some of the following by cutting some higher cost creatutes, Spellskite, Gilded Drake, Rattleclaw Mystic, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Shaman of Forgotten Ways, Stratus Dancer, Somberwald Sage, Beastcaller Savant, Sylvan Caryatid, and I'm also partial to Thassa, God of the Sea here for draw filtering and alpha strikes.

Feels only natural to include The Gitrog Monster, you already have half of the Gitrog deck.
Wharf Infiltrator another card that fits the theme nicely.
Is not yet out, but Muldrotha, the Gravetide (from Dominaria), will be a nice inclusionwhen it's finally released.
Undertaker for more tokens and recursion.
Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Thunderfoot Baloth, Beastmaster Ascension, Curse of Predation to pump all your guys.
More card draw! always need more card draw! Skullmulcher, Driven / Despair, Deathreap Ritual, Vampiric Rites, Shamanic Revelation... Some counterspells on the low cost, low color requirements side would also be handy Disdainful Stroke, Siren Stormtamer, Stratus Dancer, Swan Song maybe Stubborn Denial.

So I like the idea. For a few key improvements I suggest the following:
Lower your CMC on ramp spells. For example replace Explosive Vegetation with Nature's Lore and Kodama's reach with Farseek and maybe add Rampant Growth. As described in the Command Zone primer, you want to get Animar out as soon as possible, so low cost ramp means you get to spend it mostly on turns 2-3.
Replace evacuation with Cyclonic Rift. It is universally better.
Instead of Fires of Yavimaya you can use Temur Ascendancy for the slight chance that you hard cast something without morph, in which case you get to draw cards. But this is really up to you
Icefeather Aven is really good cause you can bounce creatures to re-use them or opponents creatures for protection
Den Protector to get stuff from the grave! So good.
Also I think your land count is too high. I'd drop at least 35 personally, cause even if you're drawing cards later in the game, lands are dead in your hand, especially since Animar psuedo-ramps you.
That is it for now and I hope I have been helpful! If you need more ideas you can also check my list in my page, "Its all natural"

Nice deck. I do have a few suggestions, most aren't really budget friendly but still good cards to work up to over time.
Some of these are admittedly low hanging fruit that I'm guessing you're already aware of but... Palinchron, Bloom Tender, Earthcraft, Glimpse of Nature, Sylvan Library, Maelstrom Wanderer, Glen Elendra Archmage, Stratus Dancer, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Heroic Intervention, Somberwald Sage, Selvala, Heart of the Wilds, Survival of the Fittest (available in gold border for MUCH cheaper), and Eldrazi Titans.
As far as cuts, I'd mainly suggest cutting Vorinclex, Jin Gitaxias, Kederekt Leviathan, and Consecrated Sphinx. These cards just typically come down a bit late to matter in an Animar list and Sphinx requires you to pass the turn to get value, you'd be better off with Tishana, Voice of Thunder in its place here. and several of your non creature spells like Wildest Dreams, Sylvan Scrying, Gilded Lotus, Mask of Avacyn, and Whispersilk Cloak. Also, who is your target for Flamekin Harbinger?
Anyways, feel free to check out my list, mines less combo and more of a combo/aggro hybrid. Animar, Angry Hemorrhoid

Well, yes, Trickbind can counter Stratus Dancer's ability, and Stratus Dancer's ability can counter Trickbind, just depends which one is responding to which, just like how Counterspell can counter Counterspell.
Creatures can be sacrificed with split second on the stack, just not as part of the cost for casting a spell or activating a nonmana ability. For instance, if a player has Ashnod's Altar, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, and Mystic Snake with no +1/+1 counters on it, they could sacrifice the Mystic Snake for , triggering undying to return the Mystic Snake, triggering it's enter the battlefield ability to counter Trickbind.
