Mate, I'm not trying to shit on you here, but why would anybody run Sacred Hulk when there are protection piles available that are extremely easy to use?
Keeps Abolisher on the field during the entire combo. 100% a superior line to what you have
Sacred Hulk wasn't unknown of before either lol. Regardless, it is a deprecated build as there are protection hulk piles available, and you get to run other white cards.

Spellseeker is worth it. It enables your most efficient combo line. Needs 2 counters on Animar, 4 life, and only .
Imperial Recruiter looks up Phyrexian Metamorph. Metamorph for 2 life copies Imperial Recruiter looks up Spellseeker. Spellseeker looks up Neoform. Neoform sacing Spellseeker looks up Ancestral Statue. Statue over and over until Animar is double your opponents life and use its final bounce to return Phyrexian Metamorph to your hand. Metamorph for 2 life again copies Imperial Recruiter to look up Walking Ballista for the win.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

cuznflick3r. The backup line is still Thassa's Oracle + Spellseeker you just have to have a single black mana up when going for that line. Blood Pet is an almost dead card outside the combo in a deck that already runs some completely dead cards.

Fundement - Blood Pet is a dead card outside the hulk pile and opens the pile up to further interaction such as Mental Misstep and Flusterstorm . Furthermore, the Spellseeker pile is also meant as a way to Flash Hulk through Cursed Totem which stops Blood Pet .

Just to catch up any readers who don't understand the combo or its implications
Flash + Protean Hulk has been a pretty potent combo for a while, even for competitive. What makes the addition of Thassa's Oracle so scary is that you can do the entire line in response to the trigger, and the hulk allows you to grab a piece of protection too, and that you don't need to be holding a draw spell/trigger.
- Protean Hulk dies, trigger stacks and resolves
- Search for Nomads en-Kor , Cephalid Illusionist Thassa's Oracle and any 1 CMC protection creature like Siren Stormtamer .
- As they enter the battlefield, the trigger for Thassa's Oracle is stacked
- You hold priority, and repeatedly use Nomads en-Kor to target Cephalid Illusionist , flipping your library into your GY
- Resolve the triggers above Oracle trigger. You now have no library, so when the Oracle trigger resolves it will see 2 devotion (for Oracle) being greater than 0 cards in library, and you will win the game
- Holding up Siren Stormtamer for interaction
That's not even the worst possible combo. You can crack hulk for Grand Abolisher Nomads en-Kor Cephalid Illusionist and any 1 CMC creature. Flip GY, then flashback Dread Return from GY to return Oracle, saccing Nomads, Illusionist, and the 1 CMC critter. Grand Abolisher guarantees safety during combo resolution, and you don't need any more library flip after its done once.
I'm sure you can find other protection piles too. Use Spellseeker to find Silence with Nomads + Illusionist + Dread Return , although that does require using after combo. The point remains that there is flexibility in combo protection with this little guy in play.
Think about Oracle like this. Its 1 CMC cheaper than Laboratory Maniac , and it doesn't need an additional draw trigger to win. It can still win if its removed while the trigger is on the stack, which is HUGE. The only downside is that it only checks upon ETB. This downside is pretty trivial though, as you don't wish to put the creature into play until there's an opportunity to win.
Its basically labman with a draw stapled to it for -1 mana. Normally labman + draw in a hulk package would eat 4 CMC of your 6. This only takes away 2.
So what's the solution? Honestly ban Protean Hulk . That card has been meta dominant since its unbanning. Its a compact, boring wincon, and it being legal makes the combo decks less interesting. Not really a lot of pilot skill in "gotta tutor and draw cards until I have A + B then resolve them holding a (free) counterspell". Yes, casual decks are going to lose out, but honestly kicking the tier 1 decks in the teeth would do wonders to open the competitive scene anyways.
Should we ban the new Oracle? I would argue no. Doomsday isn't a very big meta slice. Its more concerning for Demonic Consultation usages, but I'm still fine with it there, although this card is FAR more dangerous than labman. The difference between those decks and Protean Hulk is that those decks either win or bust at that point. You don't come back from using Doomsday if you get stopped. When Protean Hulk + Flash combo is stopped, they just pivot to yet another backup.

Atemsis is very neat. I like the way you organized your list.
You might consider these cards: Coalition Relic (can get Atemsis out on turn 4), Urza's Incubator , Muddle the Mixture (finds either piece of dramatic scepter), Spellseeker (finds Muddle), Rush of Knowledge , Assert Authority , Thoughtcast , Concentrate , Vedalken Mastermind , AEthersnipe , River Serpent , Lay Claim , Striped Riverwinder , Floodwaters , Windcaller Aven , New Perspectives
