I know a lot of people are excited about getting another nature / divine spellcasting class, but the flavor of the animist just SCREAMS "binder" to me in a way that Secrets of Magic's Pactmaker archetype just doesn't. This class does everything I'd want a binder to do, and I kind wish this could BE the creepy guy who makes weird pacts with strange entities they don't really understand.
I feel like this wouldn't be super difficult either. Most martial classes can pick Strength or Dexterity as their Key Attribute. What if this class could pick Wisdom or Charisma, and if you picked Wisdom you used the divine spell list and if you picked Charisma you used the occult spell list? It's an easy enough house rule I suppose, but there's nothing quite like the rule being ubiquitous in the book, eh?
