Fatal Push is pretty good too. And sometimes the meta just makes Blessed Alliance into the best sideboard card in the game. But if you have plenty of life to spend anyway then Dismember is pretty good removal.

Sweet list, I’d probably replace Celestial Flare with Blessed Alliance, though not sure how relevant sacking a blocking creature is for you

I love the deck! A consideration for either the main or side board would be Blessed Alliance. It's fairly cheap removal, and can be a nice trick when they think you're tapped down. The life gain is also no joke.

Celestial Colonnade- by far the best land for a controlling wu deck, mostly to add to the non budget list.

Field of RuinGhost Quarter- the deck can be really soft to man lands, the deck isn't too demanding of mana, and slowing down tron can buy you the time to lock them out, Tectonic Edge might be a budget option (not sure of it's price atm).

Temple of Enlightenment and Irrigated Farmland can both be cheaper value lands to consider.

Sphinx's Revelation really doesn't work too well in here as the deck is rather light on land, my first thought would be Search for Azcanta  Flip, but a more budget option could be Jace, Architect of Thought, Gifts Ungiven, maybe even Think Twice.

Some other fun ideas for the deck can include Feeling of Dread- a Fog in most boards that says "draw another Fog" while also working with scepter.

Blessed Alliance- pretty sweet effect options that's good for both killing creatures and healing you for burn, also can be put on a scepter.

Gut Shot just because there's no mountains in the deck doesn't mean you can't "bolt the bird".

decks like this always reminds me of the time I could run 8 board wipes and have my only wincon be a Psychic Spiral (course back then ran 27 lands).

The hard part with tribal decks is having a reason to actually play the tribe. Right now you've got Sporecrown Thallid but that's it. You could consider Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton, and if you're willing to splash into another color you should definitely spring for Slimefoot, the Stowaway and Pack's Disdain.

As for sideboard, the two general directions you can go in is planning for the decks that are good against you, or planning for the meta (the decks you expect to play against). Wrath effects and dedicated burn decks will both be a struggle for you. I'd recommend you up the number of Heroic Interventions for fighting against control since you can't recover very well from a wrath. I'd also recommend you look at some cheap lifegain or way to interact with burn. I see Congregate there, but by the time you're able to cast it burn decks will have already killed you. Timely Reinforcements is a good option, so is Blessed Alliance. Leyline of Sanctity is a great option too, but its pretty pricey. If you splash black like I suggested you could even look at a few copies of Collective Brutality. Beyond that you should expect the meta. It's very graveyard heavy right now, so I'd recommend 1-3 copies of Rest in Peace. Tron and Storm are also both present, so 1-3 copies of Damping Sphere would be a good idea as well. Artifact and enchantment destruction is always good to have access to, so 1-3 copies of either Fragmentize or Naturalize would serve you well. 1-2 copies of Pithing Needle can be nice as a catch-all, and a bit of extra removal in the form of Blessed Alliance, Journey to Nowhere, or Condemn could be nice in some games too. If you run black those could swap for Fatal Push, Collective Brutality, or Go for the Throat. With the addition of black you could also throw in some hand disruption against combo or control, things like Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek.

Whatever you choose to do, good luck!

"Mana tithe for spiciness" is a horrendoues phrase I hope I never have to read again. +1

Could use a Blessed Alliance or two in board. Comes in against burn, boggles, eldrazi. General good utility card.

Lot to love here, great deck to rejoin the game with. You'll likely struggle against control - depending how much you're expecting to face it you might want to find a slot in board for a hard to remove value engine like Bitterblossom. I could see burn becoming a problem for you as well, in which case you might look at 1-2 copies of Kitchen Finks somewhere in the 75. Even a 1x Blessed Alliance could be nice since it can also come in against bogles. And I can't help but notice you have no way to destroy leyline of sanctity except wasting a maelstrom pulse on it... Might want to swap out the creeping corrosion for a Fragmentize or Naturalize. Creeping corrosion would likely only come in against affinity, which would have killed you by the time you could cast it.
Of course, those are just my thoughts- play whatever makes you happy. Whatever you decide to do, good luck!

I love the look of this deck! I wanna try it. Only two things popped up to me when looking it over. Fewer walkers than I expected, and the two mana artifacts. They seem kinda random that could be replaced with other things like maybe lifegain spells such as Blessed Alliance since it seems you're not afraid to take some damage from your commander/covenant/dismember. Or draw power like Sphinx's Revelation or Esper Charm or something. Idk.
