Scuttlemutt can come out cheap and make mana but most importantly it can change the color of something to take advantage of Animar's protection abilities.

I think your deck has a solid start, but could benefit from having a few more enchantments. Personally, I think you could cut all of your artifacts, or at least the ramp artifacts, and include a few more enchantments like Weirding Wood, Wolfwillow Haven, Utopia Sprawl, or Unbridled Growth.
I'm not sure what your budget is like, but a few really helpful Auras are Rancor, Aspect of Mongoose, and Whip Silk, since they can all be replayed multiple times. Ordeal of Thassa and Ordeal of Nylea can both be helpful and pop-off early since your creatures will likely already have counters on them.
Simic Sky Swallower is okay as a beefy body, but can't be enchanted. You might be better off with something like Nylea's Colossus or Prime Speaker Zegana, both of which synergize with enchantments & counters.
If you're interested, check out my Eutropia deck, WAP- Wet Ass +1/+1 Counters. I built mine more around +1/+1 counter synergies with Auras.

Cloudstone Curio allows you to cycle your scarecrows for more destruction. But its kinda pricey right now.
Jodah's Avenger is a shapeshifter but does NOT count as a scarecrow.

Mayael the Anima was my first commander deck. I no longer run her, but there are a few things that I learned while playing her:
1) Protection is key: Because of her ability, Mayael is a lightning rod for removal. I'd think about including cards like Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Dense Foliage (you aren't running much targeted removal anyways), Aspect of Mongoose, or some Umbras.
Also, some haste enablers like Rhythm of the Wild would be good. And I see that the pair of Avacyn, Angel of Hope/Sigarda, Host of Herons have already been suggested. I would consider the third member of the holy trinity, Archetype of Endurance, for complete protection.

While my Nath deck is MUCH more unfriendly I do have two suggestions (that I actually don't play in my own list as I'm much more discard/ stax driven) Kaya's Ghostform and the criminally underplayed Aspect of Mongoose to protect Nath and Heroic Intervention, Wrap in Vigor and Golgari Charm to protect the team. Ezuri, Renegade Leader is also a must include IMO.

If you haven't seen Aspect of Mongoose before you probably haven't seen the others. There are three per color i think. Launch, Cessation and Spirit Loop, Sluggishness etc. Recasting enchantments that fit your deck is as good as card draw sometimes.

I'd cut Aspect of Mongoose. Hexproof is good here; shroud not so much.
Season of Growth is another good draw spell.
