Ok, so I already made 4 cuts. You chose to remove Binding of Titans, now I need to figure out what else to remove as I have Ephemerate, Llanowar Elves, Greater Auramancy, Idyllic Tutor, Bloom Tender, Worldly Tutor, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Enlightened Tutor, Sterling Grove, Eladamri's Call, Aegis of the Gods, Pernicious Deed, Final Parting, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Sanguine Bond, Exquisite Blood (Birds of Paradise is already in as I didn't update the list at this moment)

You need Dorks, dude! Birds of Paradise was just reprinted, and is cheaper than it's been in a long time. Not sure how much Bloom Tender is running right now, but I'd slot it in if it's feasible. Lil dudes like Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Elves of Deep Shadow & Avacyn's Pilgrim are needed as well. Always play your Dorks when in , unless they're not needed in a very strict, fundamental sense - which is not the case here. Maybe play a few Rituals like Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual & Culling the Weak too. Final Parting could be cool here too.
Off the top, Aegis of the Gods, Ephemerate, Flickerform, Greater Auramancy, Sterling Grove, Idyllic Tutor, Eladamri's Call, Enlightened Tutor, Worldly Tutor, Pernicious Deed & Aura Shards are probably all worth consideration as well.

Mayael of the Anima is so underrated nowadays, it's refreshing to see someone brewing her!
But dude, you need more Dorks. Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Bloom Tender...I'm sure I'm missing a few, but finding space for the aforementioned would be wise. Your Commander's ability is so expensive, I'd recommend adding 5-7 more rocks as well, especially considering how many big ole chonkers are in your creature list. Hell, I'd even add some rituals like Pyretic Ritual & Seething Song for good measure. Also, Gamble was just reprinted a few sets ago, and is super cheap right now!

Tenacious Underdog & Endless Cockroaches are both great value here! As far as dorks go, there's of course things like Birds of Paradise, Ignoble Hierarch & Bloom Tender, but also Llanowar Elves, Fyndhorn Elves, Elvish Mystic, Elves of Deep Shadow for less dollars lol.
Theft effects could work if you incorporate more sac outlets, I honestly don't know if I'd go that route with this one, though. The Commander itself doesn't naturally synergize with that strategy imo, it's essentially trying to generate and kill it's own tokens/creatures to draw cards.
I'm not sure what I'd replace from this particular list, but consider starting a new list with a new approach! That's what I do, anyway.
Oh man, also consider Sneak Attack! It essentially reduces the casting cost of your creatures to , gives them Flash, makes them uncounterable and is also a pseudo-sac outlet. Pretty nice!

If you want to be able to cast an 8 drop, you probably want over 30 lands iirc? 16 lands is actually less than people run in Burn decks, and Burn decks in Legacy are built around casting Lightning Bolt variants over and over (most of the time), your deck has lots of 4 and 5 drops, (which would require a land count of ~24-26), and it has those 2 8 drops. For example, at 16 lands you can 'expect' to see ~4 lands after drawing 15 cards (which is when you'd generally cast an 8 drop), if you have 32 lands in 60 cards you'll see ~8. You can also run some ramp, but I wouldn't run less than 22 lands with that many 4 and 5 drops.
An alternative to just running lands is ramp, and ramp can also serve as mana fixing (Green ramp sources can often produce other colours of mana as desired), your deck uses 3 colours of mana technically, you probably want something like Undercellar Myconid and Utopia Mycon.
Not sure it's better than Fungal Plots, but Night Soil can remove creatures from your opponent's graveyard or yours, but both have to come from the same one.
If you have some extra budget space there are options like Tendershoot Dryad or Blossoming Bogbeast, Bogbeast is a much better buff while Tendershoot offers tokens and a worse buff, not sure which is really better here. Bogbeast will synergize with any additional life gain, so you could throw a Primal Command to play before your Bogbeast swings/tutor for a creature/remove a permanent/deal with a graveyard, it's a really, really versatile card.
It looks like you're at 62 cards, most Legacy decks are pretty strict about 60 cards, it's a pretty cutthroat format (some people categorize decks that use Legacy cards as Casual, more decks can 'compete' at a Casual table) and you need to draw key cards.
Final point, you probably want more 1 drops, if it's not too much of a hassle you run 1 mana dorks like Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic or Fyndhorn Elves, any of these can speed your deck up a bit while offering you a card to play turn 1. Legacy isn't really the best place to have unspent mana!

30 lands is a bit low, especially since you don't have much low end ramp, even then , given the curve, that is a bit low, you may want to crank it up to 33-34
some early game ramp:
Ancestral Statue goes infinite with Animar. Once Animar has 4 +1/1 counters on him, you can keep recurring ancestral statue
Isochron Sceptre, Fabricate, Planar Portal, Mox Amber, Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern

I play-tested your deck a dozen times, to see how it flows. The most important finding of these tests, was the fact that in 80% of the cases, I couldn't cast any useful spells until turn 4. For Simic, this is a bit slow. You can fix this by adding some more cheap ramp: examples would include Three Visits, Growth Spiral, Explore and maybe some more mana dorks like Birds of Paradise, Fyndhorn Elves, Llanowar Elves, etc. Maybe some more cheap draw options can help out too, like Ponder, Preordain, Mystic Remora, etc.
