Malchi, none of those cards are terribly expensive, but if you want budget cards that have similar effects, try Ajani's Presence, Raise the Alarm, Day of Judgment, Gather the Townsfolk, Spirit Bonds, Timely Reinforcements, and Beckon Apparition are a few I can think of.
Souls of the Faultless just isn't that great of a card for a win strategy, it can't attack, cost 3 mana, doesn't affect the board when played, and can be mostly ignored by your opponent.

DeckCrazed In fact, I do run a token deck myself. It is more budget than yours, costing less than 30 dollars, along with it being two colors (Selesnya)
While I get the whole wanting to be countered thing, but that's not a reason to not have enchantments. You can lure out a counter with the enchantments, letting a Elspeth be able to be cast. And you have Not Forgotten that cannot be countered using Boseiju, so you have that recursion.
I would recommend the Brave the Elements over Gods Willing, as it will let you be able to do an lethal swing, as they will not be able to block with that color. And if you have two Gods Willing, you can have 2 colors of protection.
Always happy to help with a deck. Need anymore help, just gimme a shout.

butthurt_qrow I was trying to avoid using enchantments in the deck and leave only a handful of cards my opponent can truly be able to counter. Although I must say, Anointed Procession is really tempting to run!
As for my reasoning for main deck 3 Gods Willing, I usually attack with multiple tokens and expect that they can't block them all; so for the one or two that they do block, I wanted a card that helped me get around their creature and plan my next move with it's Scrying ability. If play testing proves them insufficient I do have 3 Brave the Elements to put in instead.
Thank you for your help! Do you run a Token Deck yourself?

I would add Mentor of the Meek to add a more ramp :) Gather the Townsfolk is not fencing related but it would do well in this deck :) and since most of your creatures are human you could throw in an Angelic Overseer to handle strong creatures if you are out of spells.

I will certainly consider Leyline. Turn four is a little late if its not a miracle in my opening hand. But if it is...amazing. I actually own Return to the Ranks and had it in an original build. The humans do see each other enter, correct, which is a huge and immediate boost. I feel like it is a better sideboard option depending on what wacky deck I am battling at that time. I may take out Luminesce for that.
mean_green_machine, Thanks! I have been considering removing Ajani Goldmane and Windbrisk Heights. Too slow and I usually don't using their abilities. I only recently heard of Mirran Crusader and have already looked for trades for it. I agree also may put these in place of a sideboard item or a in place of the main board Ajani Goldmane. This also helps the case for more Thalia, Guardian of Thraben since there wouldn't be any planeswalkers anymore. I am still hesitant because that makes Honor of the Pure and Gather the Townsfolk cost more, if you follow.

Gather the Townsfolk wont receive any benefits from Field Marshal so maybe Raise the Alarm or other Soldier token spell would be better. On that note, Fairgrounds Warden also benefit from such bonus unlike Fiend Hunter.
Since you are running so many humans Champion of the Parish is an excellent option. Otherwise you should consider running some Kithkin spells like Ballyrush Banneret which offers a lower mana cost for most of your creatures and Preeminent Captain that simply spawns a Precinct Captain or Boros Elite out of nowhere.
