Peoyogon: Thank you!!
The problem with that is that all the lands that generate colored mana generate mana that can only be spent on creatures. So until I upgrade the mana base, I can't run any non-red noncreature spells, haha.
But so far I think empty hands are far from being an issue, with Risen Reef in play every creature is a draw, but actually more than that since creatures like Thunderkin Awakener bring creatures from the graveyard every turn, each of them triggering additional draws. And if needed Mulldrifter can be tutored and works as Divination when you cast it with evoke - and recurs every turn if you've got Awakener in play, or can be recurred once with Vesperlark. And in longer attrition matches Omnath, Locus of the Roil turns lands into draws as well :)
From my tests I've found that this deck struggles the most with really fast decks, and with disruption combined with graveyard hate. But any deck that wants the game to last longer is in a bad place, because if this has time it just grows exponentially thanks to all the draw, tutoring and graveyard recursion.

Dance of Many with Risen Reef and yarok gives you 10 triggers. Or 4 triggers of any other creature. Both really good cards in any Yarok deck. Also, Yarok, Mulldrifter and Avenger of Zendikar are elementals so they trigger Risen Reef 2 times when they enter. He might be slower than Coiling Oracle (1 generic more to play, wow) but when he is put into proper use he is 10000x better than that snake. You can go 3 mana -> Risen Reef (1 trigger) -> 5 mana next turn (if you hit a land) -> Yarok (2 triggers). You don't search for creatures directly to play from the deck, so using Necromancy is just better than using Phyrexian Delver, costs less, doesn't cost life, can be cast at instant speed and still reanimates two things but not only from your graveyard.

Keeping all creatures in mind, here are a few classics you're missing for your typical Animar combo deck...
Bond Beetle gets you 2 counters on Animar for 1 green mana.
Since you have 2-3 ways to draw your entire deck, utilize Thassa's Oracle to win on the spot. Laboratory Maniac does the same thing, but Oracle is better since its effect goes onto the stack immediately and it being countered doesn't matter.
Mulldrifter is great card draw for a single blue mana.
Sylvan Safekeeper is a great way to push through commander damage, counter spells, keep Animar safe, etc...

You're missing some of the best cards for a Yarok build. Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw, Sire of Stagnation, Wood Elves, Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, and Massacre Wurm are great additions to start with.
The second problem is mana and lands. With a curve at 3.86 and 29 lands, you're going to be mana screwed more often than not. Increase this to 36 lands for consistency and you'll hit your 4th land drop 32.5% more often. Remember, no bounce lands!
Sol Ring belongs in every commander deck. Sorcery land grab spells are great additions as well. Good budget options are Rampant Growth, Farseek, and Cultivate. ~10 slots for mana acceleration is a good rule of thumb to go by.

This seems like a budget build, so I'll keep it in mind. I've been tuning my list for almost a year, and I love this guy.
This deck abuses mana all day. The land count needs to increase to the 35-36 range for consistency. Remember, mana flood > mana screw. Good lands to add on a budget are Bojuka Bog, Exotic Orchard, and Myriad Landscape.
Panharmonicon is perhaps the best artifact for this deck. It is the only spell I recommend breaking the budget for.
This deck doesn't function well without the commander. Come up with ways to protect him via counter spells or protection artifacts like Lightning Greaves.

Some thoughts and recommendations to help with the game plan.
You have 2x Risen Reef in here FYI
How are you protecting your commander? I recommend either a suite of counterspells, which take up a decent number of slots OR run something like Lightning Greaves that's fetchable with Rune-Scarred Demon.
Sol Ring belongs in this list. It's great acceleration. In fact, there's only 2 commander decks I can think of that it doesn't belong in.

Here are some recommendations to assist with your gameplan.
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is a beat stick.
Tatyova, Benthic Druid is a nightmare if left unchecked.
