The main area that will improve this deck the most is your mana ramp. I'll try to keep my suggestions budget friendly and I can also help suggest some cuts if you'd like.
Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Creativity, Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone, Pentad Prism (only cost rock that ramps 2 different colored mana in one turn), Worn Powerstone, Coalition Relic, and Basalt Monolith are all great mana rocks here. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are great options too. I literally ran all of these plus what you already run.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's extra turns Narset and it's pretty optimized. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

My advice would be save up for upgrades that're slightly more expensive and just upgrade less often. I'll keep things reasonable, categorized in order of importance, and mostly in your budget but I'm stepping outside of it a bit for a few key upgrades.
Extra Turns/Combat - This area needs a lot more cards to be consistent with Narset and should currently be your priority. Fury of the Horde, Relentless Assault, Seize the Day, Temporal Trespass, Walk the Aeons, and Waves of Aggression.
Ramp: Work on dropping all your mana rocks that cost or more (unless it costs but adds like Worn Powerstone). Talisman of Progress, Fellwar Stone, Pentad Prism, Crystal Vein, Generator Servant, Basalt Monolith, and Coalition Relic are all good options I personally ran.
Pillow Fort: Smoke, Propaganda, and Ghostly Prison are all excellent options while the decks power lever is built up. You'll eventually drop these if you start to get some of the more expensive extra turn cards in here.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not budget friendly as a whole but there's options there that're reasonable. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Sorry for being unclear, in no way does Narset come out on turn 7 ever... I just meant to highlight the power of Generator Servant in isolation. Take it or leave it, I was just trying to help.

Generator Servant ... by itself it takes Narset from a turn 7 swing to a turn 4 swing. It's the only creature I run in my Narset deck.
The other thing I found with playing Narset over the years is that an unfocused win condition was unpleasant. Swing with Narset to get extra turn after extra turn, everyone else gets to simply watch you play magic by yourself until they concede from boredom. To fix that I ended up building her as a voltron deck recently and it completely fixed that problem, while being just as competitive.
Feel free to take a look at my decklist for other ideas. Narset, Enlightened Voltron

At this point I'm kind of just thinking about what to cut for more draw power like Tormenting Voice or Faithless Looting, I mean, I already have Cavalier of Flame, Sandstone Oracle and Dragon Mage in the deck already, but doesn't hurt to put in a bit more recursion, I guess.
Overall, if I start with a haste-giver for Ilharg like Generator Servant (along with a big beatstick in my hand), this deck can move pretty fast. I can get Ilharg out and swinging on turn 2-3, and depending on the beatstick, games can end a few turns afterwards.

Good point. It would help to have as much mana as possible on a particular turn.
Currently I'm running only 3 mana rocks, plus Mana Geyser, Blood Vassal and Thermopod.
I think I'll cut Library of Leng for more mana. Should I go for another mana rock (Mind Stone maybe? There are tons to choose from) or more temporary bursts of mana, like Generator Servant, Culling the Weak, Songs of the Damned or Ashnod's Altar?

Wake the Dead and Rally the Ancestors can also be really nice finishers for aristocrat decks, letting you get a large number of sacrifice targets out of nowhere to close out games. I really like your list though; I like Generator Servant quite a bit in mine but my list is more aggro so maybe not quite as good for this playstyle. Bone Shredder is pretty dependent on the matchup but can do a ton of work and has a built in sac outlet.

Last_Laugh thank you for your feedback and suggestions. Crystal Vein and Copy Artifact are really good, think i'll add them to my deck. Generator Servant is good but it's a creature and Proteus Staff would just become a situational card, not a certain win con. I know i miss some crazy cards like Grim Monolith or Mana Crypt but are too expensive for me at the moment, i'll buy them when i'll be in a stable situation
