Hey, interesting less than $100 version of Estrid. I like the secondary snow permanent strategy with Marit Lage's Slumber :)
Cards within the budget to consider adding:
- Waker of the Wilds: mana sink to make lands into creatures.
- Dawn's Reflection
- Market Festival
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Faerie Conclave: creature land, flying.
- Treetop Village: creature land, trample.
- Celestial Colonnade: creature land, flying/vigilance.
- Stirring Wildwood: creature land, reach.
- Lumbering Falls: creature land, hexproof.
- Genesis Wave: can put lands and enchantments onto the battlefield.
- Wargate: can tutor for a permanent and put it onto the battlefield. Reprinted in the Mystery Booster set, that version is $1.
- Sylvan Scrying: tutor for any land.
- Open the Armory: tutor for any aura.
- Sun Titan: can reanimate lands or other permanents that are 3 or less CMC.
Waker of the Wilds as a mana sink with creature lands can expand on the lands strategy.
Upgrades to consider:
- Waker of the Wilds > Omen of the Sun
- Overgrowth > Omen of the Hunt
- Dawn's Reflection > Sheltered Aerie
- Market Festival > Verdant Haven
- Wargate > Rites of Flourishing
- Genesis Wave > Boundless Realms
- Sun Titan > Embodiment of Insight
- Sylvan Scrying > Treasure Hunt
- Open the Armory > Journey of Discovery
- Command Tower > 1x Forest
- Exotic Orchard > 1x Forest
- Faerie Conclave > 1x Island
- Treetop Village > 1x Forest
- Celestial Colonnade > 1x Island
- Stirring Wildwood > 1x Forest
- Lumbering Falls > 1x Island
Good luck with your deck.

WOTC uses various tactics to make spells "more difficult" to cast, which helps emulate the power of the spell.
Colorless spells, such as Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, have insanely high generic mana costs, which is the numerical portion of the casting cost.
Some spells that don't cost a whole lot, like Phyrexian Obliterator cost a lot of one specific color, making it nearly impossible to cast outside of mono-colored decks.
Other cards, such as Genesis Wave ask you to pay more into it for bigger benefits.
Some will ask additional costs, such as Abjure.
Still more have timing restrictions, as with Serra Avenger.
Yet more ask for complex mana requirements, as with Aurelia, the Warleader.
To get to the point, Planeswalkers are considered (though far less than often) powerful spells. As such, mana devotion is used to make it intrinsically more difficult to cast them. It's better than having ones that cost seven Mana, at least...

Sounds like a job for Insurrection.
It also kinda looks like you're trying to build a combo deck, what with the Congregation at Dawn and specific 3 creatures you want out, in which case Genesis Wave, Genesis Hydra, Lurking Predators, Kamahl's Druidic Vow, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, See the Unwritten, Atla Palani, Nest Tender, Aid from the Cowl, Warp World, Divergent Transformations, Indomitable Creativity, Reality Scramble, and Genesis Storm are your options for cheating out multiple creatures off the top of your deck. You'd then want to shore up your tutors (not having blue hurts here, but black is king) to be able to consistently grab Congregation at Dawn.
The other option (or perhaps in addition to) is to go reanimator. Buried Alive+Balthor the Defiled, Champion of Stray Souls, All Hallow's Eve, Immortal Servitude, Pyrrhic Revival, or Rise of the Dark Realms.
Tutors can serve each plan equally, and it keeps the deck from doing the same thing every time, which is good for casual play. Also, if you throw in Footbottom Feast, Gravepurge, Forever Young, and/or Bone Harvest, Buried Alive interacts with Genesis Wave and friends.

Also if you ever wanna open the doors to a non-budget deck (while the world budget is very subjective in magic the gathering some cards wont be terribly high in cost some are) here are some other cards that would be amazing for mono green devotion. Elvish Piper - Nyxbloom Ancient - Worldspine Wurm - Genesis Wave - Primalcrux - Khalni Hydra - Craterhoof Behemoth

I feel Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin is a little better than Anax, Hardened in the Forge d/t one less & no "nontoken" prerequisite. I've had a couple of games in my Marisi deck where he just sortof becomes his own little subcommander, no one wants to spend removal on him, but he maka the tokens & becomes bigga. Maybe better than Darien, King of Kjeldor - depending on your meta. My meta favors more death punishments & is not too creature swingy.
Helm of the Host is sweet. I don't know why I can only recommend CMC-intensive cards to you (probably my inner Timmy)
Sword of Truth and Justice I was a little bit 'meh' on. I've used it well in Marisi... But that deck is all about evasion and protection... Probably better mass-benefit synergies to be had for your deck.
Mimic Vat is pretty good for weathering the boardwipe storms that you're bound to create.

Thieves' Auction is brutal haha, I didn't realize it only exiled nontokens! Definitely finding a spot for that one and Genesis Wave. I think those effects are enough to warrant spots for more non-permanents.
Is Sword of Truth and Justice just for the protection? Not sure how it benefits my strategy.
Thanks for your help!!
