Evolving is from MM2 unfortunately, Predator is from Dissenion and Artisan is from the old Commander set. I actually could use the normal Remand as well, and I could pull out another Atarka's Command as well. If you're interested in that, we would have:
Remand F $17.07
3x Atarka's Command $18.75
Trygon Predator $0.82
Artisan of Kozilek $1.42
Monastery Swiftspear $2.34
Could you find another dollar of cards in my binder to make it even?

I know, I haven't seen a Bant CoCo list that I like, but you can certainly do some powerful things with it. You get access to cards like Meddling Mage, Deceiver Exarch, Pestermite, Silumgar Sorcerer, Trinket Mage, Vendilion Clique, Rhox War Monk, Jenara, Asura of War, Wistful Selkie, Winged Coatl, Trygon Predator, Coiling Oracle, Deputy of Acquittals, and Geist of Saint Traft. Now some of these are better than others, but these are the cards I could see Bant CoCo adding to the mix.

I just did a quick gatherer search and put together a list of good creatures (probably not better than ones you have, but anyway) that range from high powered to super techie for you to consider, not that they should necessarily go in, what you have is really good, just that they may patch up some kinks if you had any. Please don't feel like you need to respond to this, just cards to think about. Here you go:

Torpor Orb definitely hoses Animar's game plan. With your current list, the best option is to just go for an Animar beat-down on your opponent. Animar gets counters when you cast a creature, not when the creature enters the battlefield, so you can still keep pumping Animar and dump big creatures for cheap.
If you know that Torpor Orb is going to be a regular issue in your meta, you may want to swap some of your creatures. You could take out Acidic Slime and Reclamation Sage and put in Ainok Survivalist and Nantuko Vigilante. Torpor Orb doesn't stop their triggers when they flip face up and morph creatures work well with Animar and Cloudstone Curio. Trygon Predator, Viashino Heretic, Wickerbough Elder, and Glissa Sunseeker are other creature options.
There is also Deglamer as a non-creature option. Being able to shuffle an artifact away may prove more useful to you against that Daretti, Scrap Savant deck. Fade into Antiquity can exile the artifact, but it costs 3 mana and is a sorcery.

Thanks for the feedback!
The combo I actually added just recently (the cards are still in the mail) and previously I've won games mostly either by just out-valuing others (having Prophet of Kruphix and a ton of mana) or surviving until it's 1 on 1 in which case it's quite easy to win the game.
The deck plays out kind of like a blue jund deck, except now it has a combo finish too. :)
Trygon Predator is actually definitely a card that I should be playing, thanks for the reminder! Birthing Pod is interesting too, and I think if I want to go that route, I should probably look for more ETB creatures with more VALUE! Puppeteer Clique comes into mind.
Murderous Cut is quite great actually, since it's usually a one mana removal, and more importantly you can delve all the cheap cantrips and such from the graveyard, so you can recur the more powerful cards with Tasigur, the Golden Fang (which is why I have Logic Knot in the deck too). About half of the games I play are 1vs1 and 4 player multiplayer, so I kind of try to keep the deck balanced for both ways of play.
I think for now I have at least enough delve cards (if not too many, since Tasigur delves a lot by himself already), so I don't think Skeletal Scrying will make the cut, I'll probably still try it out, but at least I will definitely try out Yawgmoth's Will at some point, at least for the sheer power level and synergy it has, since I have a ton of cantrips, crop rotation as kind of a dark ritual etc.

I see a lot of goodstuff cards like Shadowmage Infiltrator for instance, and I think you should cut them if you want to streamline your combo. Looking at older comments makes me think you're trying to play a very combo-centric and defensive strategy, and things like True-Name Nemesis don't contribute to this plan.
Or else I look at your deck description and realize why you're running low-cost aggro creatures + Sword of Feast and Famine and Umezawa's Jitte. I like this plan, though True-Name Nemesis really isn't want you want (if this is multiplayer, and not duel commander). I'd instead run something like Trygon Predator. Also, I think you'd like a Birthing Pod, considering the number of creatures and the curve.
Have you considered Yawgmoth's Will to sculpt your yard + mega value? Or do you have too many delve cards? Skeletal Scrying is a good one. I also think there's more efficient removal than Murderous Cut.
Just some thoughts. Nice deck. I'm thinking of building Tasigur for duel commander, and you've definitely got some good ideas going on here.
