Illusionist's Bracers would double opponent sacs.
Den Protector is cheap and pretty worthless after you use the morph. Good sac bait.
Aspect of Mongoose can be cast, sacced, returned to your hand and cast again. Each color has a few enchantments that return to your hand when they hit the graveyard.

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.

A great card for green is Into the Wilds you get to look at the top card of your library upkeep if it is a land put it on the battlefield best part does not count as your land played for your turn so filters your land + can be ramp oh and is like 25cents
Abundance is another variation of filtering your deck also green
Den Protector budget eternal witness
Echoing Truth flexible bounce because if it is tokens it hits all the same tokens
Look at charms some are cheaper than others some will fit budgets some may not but see example below Sultai Charm
Shenanigans Reins of Power ignore the $5 ones someone is trying to rip people off outside those they are all 50-85 cents

Your avg. cmc is astronomically high my man. Even with a more casual Animar deck your avg. cmc should be about 3.8 TOPS. As the deck stands, your first few counters on Animar will be very slow and inconsistent.
Sorry if that comes off as overly critical. I have several suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category and keep things budget and casual friendly (mostly).
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

kpotrzuski: Bane of Progress has been in and out of the deck, but I am currently working on a variation that leans even more into the stax playstyle as I've noticed the more the game drags the stronger the deck performs as a whole. Currently working on putting in:
