Thank you for the upvote!
What is your definition of a "budget" build? When I began building decks I tried to keep them within a $20 range, but now that my income is more generous "budget" for me is ~$100. I understand that "budget" is different for everyone, so that would be a good starting point. That being said, here are a few suggestions.
Long Post Show
1. Guardian Idol - It doesn't feel right in this deck and opens room for better cards.
2. Heliod's Emissary - This card is far too expensive for what it accomplishes and again opens up slots for better cards.
(These are definitely going to depend on your definition of "budget.")
1. Graceblade Artisan - Creature gets beefy with Auras, budget version of Kor Spiritdancer.
2. Mesa Enchantress - Provides card draw if you can't find the budget for Spiritdancer.
3. Hyena Umbra - Totem armor is amazing for keeping creatures alive, and alleviates the card disadvantages that Auras bring. Alternatively, Umbra Mystic will give all Auras Totem armor.
4. Daybreak Coronet - Amazing Aura. Enough said.
5. Spirit Mantle - Another amazing Aura.
6. Authority of the Consuls - Similar to Blind Obedience but can be played Turn 1 to slow creatures down immediately, and prolong your life.
7. Nevermore - Excellent card for Pillow Fort as it slows down several decks.
8. Archangel of Tithes - Instead of Windborn Muse, it will also help you get damage through and delay blockers.
At the very least, I would recommend increasing the number of lands being played. 19 is really low for the average CMC of the deck and you don't want to run out of mana when needed. Additionally, include a full play set of Ghostly Prison, Ethereal Armor, and Hopeful Eidolon. They are great cards.
I hope you were able to find some of this useful!

No planeswalkers because Unlicensed Disintegration makes them feel bad. Though Gideon is good anyway. And maybe Nissa is anyway too.
I finally picked up this deck, and added a bit of flair:
SCORE: 1 | 34 VIEWS
It's extremely aggressive, doesn't care much about blocking or removal, and is ready to lifelink the win. Haven't seen a deck like this since heroic with Hopeful Eidolon enchanted a Hero of Iroas and Gods Willing protected it and brought home the lifelinking evasive damage. This is FUN!

My Pheres-Band Raiders is enchanted with Hopeful Eidolon and Ghostblade Eidolon, power and toughness each 7. My opponent is blocking with Champion of Stray Souls whose power and toughness are each 4, Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord whose power and toughness are each 5, and Rot Shambler whose power and toughness are each 8. That is the blocking order she is choosing in hopes that my Pheres-Band Raiders will die before it deals enough damage to her Rot Shambler to kill it. Will either of the first two blockers do ANY damage to my creature, or will the first strike kill both of them before either of them deal damage and she's killing them unnecessarily?

Is this deck meant to be a casual or a tournament deck? What are your goals or design ideas?
At first glance, the Aether Vial doesn't work in this deck as you have too many different casting costs to make the Vial worthwhile.
I would recommend moving the Trained Caracal and Angelic Destiny to the mainboard to increase your early game creatures. Additionally, you could win a game with just the Angelic Destiny on the Trained Caracal if that was all you had. Making that change would make the Aether Vial a viable sideboard card. Then you could use the Vial when you need to sneak in a Trained Caracal or Mother of Runes under counterspells.
A quick look at Gatherer later, it looks like Hopeful Eidolon, Herald of Anafenza, Figure of Destiny, Elite Vanguard, and Doomed Traveler all look like good fits for the deck. Of course, knowing more about your idea for the deck and what direction you want to go with it would help in recommending changes.
Let me know what you think.

Here I am guys! Sorry for the long absence, but I had a lot of things to do with job and university. Now I'm back! You showed a lot of love for this deck in this months, and as always, I can't thank you enough!
Regarding the suggestions:Aqueous Form is a bit useless since most of my creatures are already evasive. Spell Queller is great, but unfortunately is also quite out of budget. Hopeful Eidolon is good, but I don't know what I'd cut for it lol
