I was gonna suggest Allosaurus Shepherd until I looked at the price. Damn, must be so high because of legacy.
I’m new to edh so maybe my suggestions aren’t useful but just some thoughts!

Storm is a deck archetype where the idea is to cast a ton of spells in a single turn in order to win that turn. Traditional storm decks are blue and red and use cards that provide excess mana such as Rite of Flame and cantrips like Ponder to dig through their decks to find their win condition which is usually either Grape Shot or Empty the Warrens . In the case of Selvala, Heart of the Wilds (usually called Bro Storm) the idea is to play out the entire deck with a huge Genesis Wave or by turning your creatures into cantrips with cards like Soul of the Harvest and Glimpse of Nature along side big mana generators and large draw spells like Regal Force or Return of the Wildspeaker then attacking for lethal.
It requires seven mana but that is the combo i was speaking of. There was another one but my mind is fried right now from lack of sleep.

I agree with some of the cuts you already did that were suggested by abby315 and Keqing420. I also think you don't need Elvish Champion instead of Ezuri, Renegade Leader. I believe Ezuri is more reliably going to finish games over the champion. Beast Whisperer is part of the deck's card advantage and card playing engine so should stay in the deck without a big overhaul of the deck. Besides being a replacement for Glimpse of Nature in the deck since glimpse isnt Modern legal.
Some more cuts I feel could happen are; Deleting Elvish Promenade. Both Collected Company or Chord of Calling would be better in this deck than the promenade. I understand that the copies of Primal Surge fulfills what either of those might provide for this deck. But they are both way better than the promenade because they can get you your combo pieces. I would consider replacing it maybe with Turntimber Symbiosis Flip if you don't want to play either CoCo or Chord. Partly due to the fact it still puts brakes on your Surges and can serve as a land in a pinch. (Way not needed, I know). It gets more utility elves out like Coco and Chord so would make your gameplay more consistent. Or maybe Lead the Stampede instead?
I also agree that I would also cut the Fauna Shaman until you can get Craterhoof Behemoth. Without the behemoth, you just dont need anything else that badly to tutor up you won't be able to find with surge or your draw engine.
Also, I don't see any value from the copies of Elvish Clancaller. Your deck is more combo and going wide than needing anthem effects. It's activated ability costs way too much for just getting another clancaller. I would cut all 4 and see if your decks suffers at all. Or leave the fauna shamans and promenades and just cut those. Or replace them with copies of Elvish Champion even.
You also dont need anything in your maybe board except maybe Imperious Perfect. Though I would treat that as a slightly better card than the clancallers and wouldnt put them in the deck either. Helix Pinnacle is just picking a different win condition than the Ezuri/possible behemoth route. Metallic Mimic actually provides nothing the deck needs at all.

Thank you! I just love the Yu-Gi-Oh! theme here. Haha. The deck has only gotten better since I first built it, and it plays really well even if the bounce combo requires a lot of pieces and seems convoluted.
These are all interesting suggestions. Here are my thoughts on them:
Centaur Omenreader Not as good as our other cost reducers, I think, only because it has to be tapped. With Earthcraft it’s fine and a cheaper Ugin although the latter can also function as removal or card advantage which I think is worth the two additional mana. I think it could work if you play with more ways to tap creatures.
Tangleroot I like this one. It could help with storming off especially if we’re chaining creatures and digging through the library. Also infinite mana with our free bounce combo, but that’s win-more. Good card but not sure how I’d slot it in. Currently I don’t feel like I’m missing it, but it could definitely do work.
Glen Elendra Pranksters Faerie Tauntings While it’s true that we ideally want to play under Prophet of Kruphix, that doesn’t always happen. I feel these would be dead draws otherwise. I love the idea of having either out in magical Christmas land, though.
Glimpse of Nature Cheaper than Beast Whisperer and Guardian Project but only a sorcery. I’m not really feeling it only for the lack of reusability outside pulling it from the yard. That being said I can see this being a good play. This has the potential for some explosive draws for 1 mana which is nothing to turn your nose up at. In the right situations it could dig pretty hard. Personally I think I’d still prefer the permanents so I can continue digging on future turns including my opponents’.
Thought Harvester Basically this could be another finisher. I wouldn’t replace Aetherflux Reservoir or Words of Wind with it, but it could be an alternate to Altar of the Brood which I just replaced. They essentially function the same except this exiles the cards rather than milling them which is just better. Not for me, I think, but this easily a good card to have if someone wants to go that route.
Opposition This is not a bad idea. Could be another way to stall opponents or lock them out completely with enough morphs and Seedborn Muse. Slots have gotten really tight in this deck lately, but this is one I’d heavily consider.
All relevant suggestions and none I’d really consider before. Thanks for the added perspective!

Neat concept. These cards might be worth considering: Spark Double, Chakram Retriever, Sakashima the Impostor, Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, Glimpse of Nature, Shared Summons, Cryptolith Rite, Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury, Llanowar Mentor, Wirewood Channeler (errata says he's a druid now!), Sword of the Paruns, Staff of Domination, Concordant Crossroads, Quest for Renewal, Patron of the Orochi, Distant Melody

The 3 main things I'm noticing are that this deck lacks card draw, your non-creature count is really high for Animar (shoot for like 18 or less non-creatures), and the avg. cmc needs to come down to about 3.3 or less. Animar will rip through your hand fast... cards that draw over and over on your turn are your bread and butter here. Beast Whisperer, Soul of the Harvest, Primordial Sage, and Glimpse of Nature are your best bets.
Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid for reference. Upvotes are appreciated.

Muscle Sliver is worthy of consideration.
Ward Sliver is evil but a useful option.
Quilled Sliver is an option.
Sentinel Sliver could allow you to attack and still have blockers or have mana dorks during and after combat phase.
Harmonize is that green card draw I mentioned.
Glimpse of Naturewould work well in this deck.
Hunter's Insight can let you draw a lot.
The Immortal Sun could be useful.
Bring to Light is a way to tutor a sliver like hive lord.
Harmonic Sliveris helpful removal.
Sliver Hive could be a useful land.

I just got the notification I got tagged. Sorry for the late reply. I've absolutely loved Ashaya, Soul of the Wild in my selvala deck. I think that's definitely a way to go but if tharasios wasn't the commander Beast Whisperer and Glimpse of Nature are insanely good.
