Hey, nice budget version of Estrid.
I see Siona, Captain of the Pyleas. A way to win with her is Shielded by Faith. This makes an infinite combo of creating 1/1 Soldiers. Emergence Zone is helpful with this combo because then you can do it at instant speed and attack with the Soldiers on your turn to win. Open the Armory and Heliod's Pilgrim are budget tutors to get an aura. More tutors to get auras are helpful with land auras.
I see Stasis. Could expand on the pillowfort strategy of making your opponents permanents ETB tapped with Blind Obedience, Kismet, Frozen AEther. Further protect yourself with Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety. Wilderness Reclamation is helpful with Stasis.
Once you have a established a pillowfort then cards such as Approach of the Second Sun or Sandwurm Convergence can be win conditions. Kiora, Behemoth Beckoner is good with Convergence and Sigil of the Empty Throne. Kiora helps to make ramp to cast them and then each time a 5/5 Wurm or 4/4 Angel is created you draw.
With all the mana that Estrid can make with enchanted lands then the budget Finales, Finale of Glory and Finale of Revelation are options. Finales are good with Emergence Zone especially Glory since then you can attack with an army on your turn.
The manabase here is not ideal for three colors since there's a lot of basic lands. I realize this is because of such a low budget, but when playing three or more colors you really want to allocate more of the budget for dual lands to make it easier to cast cards. Green is the most important color because of the land auras, mana dorks and Enchantresses. Most of the land auras can make white and blue mana which is very helpful and allows for more green.
Budget lands to consider adding:
- Command Tower
- Yavimaya Coast
- Exotic Orchard
- Seaside Citadel
- Bant Panorama
- Opal Palace
- Ash Barrens
- Prairie Stream
- Evolving Wilds
- Selesnya Sanctuary
- Simic Growth Chamber
- Azorius Chancery
The bounce lands may not seem good, but if they're enchanted then you can untap them with Estrid which can make a lot of mana and make up for the fact they ETB tapped. Consider more low CMC land auras? Even if the aura doesn't create ramp when you tap the enchanted land it's still enchanted so Estrid can untap it that makes it worth adding. Other land auras to consider adding:
Good luck with your deck.

Twist35, as you can see in the updates, I used to play bounce lands in the deck. With the addition of Mystic Sanctuary, I tried playing without Mnemonic Wall and Archaeomancer so I ended up cutting some bounce lands. Eventually, I came back to Archaeomancer with 0 bounce lands. It's true that you can combo with Snap if you have Azorius Chancery, but I prefer maximizing the chances of having Mystic Sanctuary online T4-T5. I feel it's more important than the off chance of comboing with Snap, which is very often going to be cast early on.

Cool deck! I like the theme. These cards might catch your interest: Kenrith's Transformation, Mercy Killing, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Captain Sisay, Satyr Enchanter, Ajani's Chosen, Mark of Eviction, Broken Fall, Molting Skin, Gossamer Chains, Curator's Ward, Three Dreams, Simic Growth Chamber, Selesnya Sanctuary, Azorius Chancery

Do you think that adding bounce lands would improve the list? I know that some previous versions had a bunch of Azorius Chancery in them to combo with Snap. I think the list was made before Mystic Sanctuary was printed, so I don't know if there is room for it.

Okay, I have a few cards I question.
Battle Mastery doesn't really seem to fit the deck
Azorius Chancery is just bad
Convolute could be replaced by any auto-counter that also costs three mana (like
Into the Roil is not an effective bounce spell for its cost
And then a few to recommend.
Icefall Regent is a very good fit for this deck.
And then Mana Drain is just boss.
