Bottle Gnomes may only gain you life but they at least can sac themselves at no cost and count as historic for the purposes of triggering your commander's ability.
Felidar Cub gives a little more removal to recur.
Condemn is a bit conditional but at least an option for some instant speed removal that can deal with indestructible creatures.
Checked Card Kingdom and they have a fair number of printings of Sun Titan for under $3, the Commander 2019 version is listed at $1.99. Having a couple of things that are a little beefier wouldn't be a bad idea and it fits the theme of the deck.
I second adding a anthem or two to be able to punch through if/when needed.

bankrupt_on_selling: Thank you!
When I first started building this deck 2 years ago I used Condemn , but then I noticed that the attack clause meant that I couldn't use it on utility or combo creatures, which is the vast majority of what I want to remove. With Oust being a sorcery it isn't optimal (if only Swords to Plowshares was legal..), but it is more flexible, and I get a little bit of tempo advantage out of it with the sort of topdeck manipulation.
Oust is only poor when it comes to ETB creatures.

Traditionally these lists run Martyr of Sands and Soul's Attendant . The old school variants used Squadron Hawk for bigger martyrs, most modern lists are red/white for Norin the Wary / Genesis Chamber .
Ranger of Eos / Ranger-Captain of Eos are powerful tools to put a lot of lifegain creatures on the board. Black white 'pay life'/ Children of Korlis is a thing. Condemn plays nice with alternative wincons. Essence Warden and cards like Weather the Storm point towards a green list, which would likely run some newer token-generation like Haazda Marshal & Legion's Landing Flip.
Have fun brewing- martyr proc/soul sisters is a classic which deserves to be back in the meta.

Thanks for the suggestions, Lucky! The issue I've run into with Alms Beast is that it's strength is largely dictated by what my opponent is playing, making it seem more relevant in a sideboard. Even then many of the large creatures that I can't outsustain with the occasional self-heal tend to either have life-gain effects anyways (IE. Griselbrand or Wurmcoil Engine ) or are better targeted by a Condemn than hoping that they only have the one creature so that Devour Flesh would be relevant, though I would likely keep some Devour Flesh in the SB. Even Oust seems to be generally better specifically because I can choose a target, and even if the damage is only effectively a bolt it works better on smaller creatures or the ones that don't attack and therefore can't be Condemn ed anyways.
The other creatures are primarily placeholders at the moment. I'd auto-include Dark Confidant if I had the money for him at the moment, and I already have Wall of Shards listed in the main deck. Currently running the cheap deathtouch creatures+ Warriors' Lesson is a solid enough replacement until I can afford it, but it's not looking to be the end-all-be-all of the build.
Thanks again for the suggestions...!

My friend made a weird version of this deck using Alms Beast . My suggestion (Which is what my friend did) is to use 4 Wall of Shards , 4 Devour Flesh in the main board. The other enchantments in the deck cost too much mana for modern and don't have enough pay off. In addition, you have enough life gain in the deck that you probably only need the 4 Wall of Shards and 4 Alms Beast . Your other creatures are too easy to kill with Fatal Push , Electrolyze , Lightning Bolt etc. Also, you probably want to change your land base to more fetches and only one or two copy of each shock land that works and a single copy of each basic. Finally, Beacon of Immortality makes a player instantly lose and should be included in the deck for a last resort. And you defiantly need draw. You'll run out of cards really fast and also need to dig for Tainted Remedy , so I suggest Harmonize
Overall, here is what I would recommend
