If you're running 4x Green Sun's Zenith AND 2x Eye of Ugin AND 4x Worldly Tutor then you hardly need 3x Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, 2x Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, or 4x Primeval Titan. 1 of each Eldrazi and 2 of the Titan should work fine, and that will open up 5 card spots for either more ramp or some control.
Candelabra of Tawnos is just better than Magus of the Candelabra in Legacy. Understandable substitution though, as Tawnos is pricey. 4x Utopia Sprawl could help with the ramp in place of those extra creatures. Arbor Elf is probably better than Joraga Treespeaker, especially since you aren't runnin gany other elves. Arbor Elf can untap a Forest with Wild Growth and/or Utopia Sprawl on it which can quickly ramp into massive amounts of mana with multiples.

Removing a color would be nice and I agree that black is the weakest and most unnecessary one. However, it would not be Abzan Houses deck if we removed a color, wouldn't it?
The simplest method for building any deck is the Rule of 9 - your 9 best cards, with 4 copies each and 24 lands. Keep in mind, I might deviate from that rule, but it still apllies.
Lets start with the list:
4 Experiment One, 4 Ainok Bond-Kin, 3 Ivorytusk Fortress, 2 Abzan Battle Priest, 2 Mer-Ek Nightblade 2 Abzan Falconer, 1 Tuskguard Captain, 2 Mikaeus, the Lunarch, 2 Corpsejack Menace. 22 creatures. We have space for 14 more spells.
This is a simple method, but an effective one. All changes suggest are very, very cheap.

If you want to make a fast aura deck, you are making Hexproof. I'll give you some tips, as this is a pretty fun archetype that can be very competitive if you want it to be.
The three best creatures in this deck are Slippery Bogle, Gladecover Scout, Kor Spiritdancer. The first two are very safe to enchant, and Spiritdancer lets you deck yourself. Seriously, I've done it before. These should be your only creatures, and they should be 4-ofs.
Your enchantments are Rancor, Hyena Umbra, Spider Umbra, Ethereal Armor, Keen Sense, Daybreak Coronet (which is really expensive, but is also pretty awesome), Spirit Mantle (also not necessary), and Unflinching Courage. You'll notice that these enchantments are all low mana-cost. This is because Modern is a Turn 4 format, meaning that the player with the best board state and cards in hand by T4 usually wins the game. There are exceptions, but they are rare. Because of this, an enchantment that costs 6 mana, like Indrik Umbra, is unplayable. If a card costs more than 4 mana and doesn't win you the game when cast, it's probably not worth playing. Examples of 4-mana cards that win the game in Modern are Splinter Twin (combos with Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch for infinite hasty dudes, or goes on a Tarmogoyf/Huntmaster of the Fells Flip for giant value), Scapeshift (combos with Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle to do tons of damage), and Gifts Ungiven (either search for + for one giant creature, or + + + 1 land for infinite discard). As this deck wants badly to be the aggressor, the limit becomes 3 mana.
Lastly, let's talk about lands. Lands in Modern are normally expensive (ex. Windswept Heath, Razorverge Thicket, and Temple Garden), but I can see you're on a tight budget (for Modern), so I'll try to get better replacements. Let's start with Brushland. You can get a copy for about $1.50 + shipping on TCGPlayer, which is super budget for Modern lands. Another option is Sunpetal Grove, another relatively cheap land (about $2.00 + shipping) that makes both of your colors and enters untapped. I can also see you're running Graypelt Refuge, Terramorphic Expanse, Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree, and Krosan Verge. Krosan Verge just isn't Modern legal, so that's that. Vitu-Ghazi only makes colorless and takes a lot more mana than you really want to make in order to have an essentially useless effect (who cares about a 1/1 when you have a 10/10 lifelink trample vigilance first strike?). The other two don't make mana the turn they enter, which is bad when you will need access to at least 3 total mana over your first two turns to be in good shape. I would suggest cutting all of these.
With this in mind, here is a sample decklist. There are many changes to be made, but it'll give you a rough idea of what you might want to do with this deck to make it competitive without losing the fun value:
4x Hyena Umbra
2x Keen Sense
2x Spider Umbra
Eventually, this list would want to cut the Silhana Ledgewalker for Kor Spiritdancers and the Vigilance/Lifelinks for Daybreak Coronet. Also, -2 Spirit Mantle, +2 Keen Sense, and better lands would be nice. You can get this deck (- basics) for about $48.74 on TCGPlayer Optimized, which is about $6 more than your current list.
