Figured I'd take a look at your other stuff.

At a glance I can tell you that 5 and 6 drops are problematic in a 20 land deck. You could substitute Angel of Invention with Angel of Jubilation, and Herald of War with Archangel of Tithes.

I think adding another Elspeth, Knight-Errant would be better than having that Elspeth, Sun's Champion, but you could also run Ajani Steadfast or Gideon of the Trials for variety.

Lone Rider  Flip is one of my favorite cards. you could take out Nyx-Fleece Ram or maybe Herald of War for it?

Angel tribal? Why not Herald of War.

Sconed - Thanks for the comment! Sorry it's taken me a while to respond! I haven't really thought too much about budget options, but so far I've found a few different ones! Naturally, they may make the deck a little more slow and clunky, but that is sort of expected.

Endless Horizons in place of Land Tax ... It's still a way of guaranteeing your land drops, and it helps thin the deck a bit as well. It hurts a lot if it gets removed, and it comes down later than Land Tax normally would.

Cradle of Vitality in place of Archangel of Thune ... This is clearly a trade off in which Archangel of Thune is better, but that's the difference between the value in those cards. This still lets you get creatures bigger, and also helps with Herald of War, which is another reason for Archangel of Thune.

Semblance Anvil in place of Urza's Incubator, or any other mana ramp card ... This is definitely slower, and I personally wouldn't recommend it just because there may not be a card that you want to toss to activate it. It is certainly an option though!

Umezawa's Jitte and Sword of Light and Shadow can be replaced with just about any other equipment, though the options provided by Jitte are really awesome. The recursion provided by Sword of L&S is great, as is the protection, but it could be replaced with other hexproof things, or even Spectra Ward

Other than that, the suggestions provided by Gleeock are also pretty solid ones!
