My favorite budget combo lately has been Leonin Arbiter+Animate Dead. I think Aristocrats is by far the best way to build Trynn+Silvar, and it's a style that makes it very easy to add or remove combos that interact with Blood Artist or Impact Tremors effects to adjust the power without affecting the overall functioning of the deck. If you want to see some good budget combos, have a look at the WB Uncommon tribal deck I've been brewing. I also put in Vizier of Remedies+Persist combos. Most of the cost of the deck is in tutors, but without the Uncommon tribal restriction and access to red cards, you shouldn't need them. Impact Tremors, Goblin Sharpshooter, Judith, the Scourge Diva, Hissing Iguanar, and Murderous Redcap are all red options. Deathbringer Thoctar, Rage Thrower, Warstorm Surge, and Flayer of the Hatebound are also options, although I'm a stickler for CMC.

Deathbringer Thoctar is like another copy of your commander, except it pings even harder.
Kumano, Master Yamabushi was the original pinging commander. I think it's still worth including him. He's a great mana sink and just pinging for one and exiling is great. Note you won't get the experience counter if the creature is exiled, though.
Balthor the Defiled will reanimate almost all your creatures.
Is Zirda really doing that much for you? It seems to me like you can't really do much with the activation discount aside from making your equipment cheaper to equip. You certainly aren't using it for the body or activated ability. You could be running much better cards in your maindeck that aren't restricted by Zirda. The first thing I thought of when looking through your deck was Torpor Orb, for example. You have 0 creature ETB triggers, making this an excellent choice. Retreat to Hagra and Archetype of Finality are also not options for you right now.
Chandra, Flame of Kaladesh can't target creatures. It's still a great card, but it doesn't help your commander until it flips.
Your deck's curve mostly tops out at 3, with very few exceptions. I would think about cutting to 36 lands and maybe 8 mana rocks.

Literally everything with first strike.
Though my favorite is Deathbringer Thoctar . Once one creature dies, or you somehow put a +1/+1 counter on it by some other means, it's an instant and full wrath.
Give it some hexproof and suddenly you have a lock on the game.

I have a Marchesa deck built around modular creatures if you want to check it out :) Also are you from Chicago by chance? Your username reminds me of the baseball team
