You sure you have enough forced token generators? Hunted Troll could also be a good fit.

The other thought I had was Hunted Troll type cards, but unfortunately the owner of a token is whos control it was created under, not who created it.
So I guess I just throw it in the 99 of old Trostani or Tolsimir

Nothing quite like spice with a price limit hah.
Hm, Kozilek's Predator doesn't seem to do much for you here. It's too expensive to be effective ramp and too small to be an effective beater. I'd say you're better off swapping those out for another beater that pairs well with unblockable. Sagu Mauler has the advantage of having hexproof so he can't be picked off as easily, and Hunted Troll has the advantage of being absolutely massive for the mana cost. You could also swap out some of the Yasova Dragonclaws for some of these.
Similarly, Augury Owl is too small to be a beater and doesn't ramp you at all. I'd say you're better off playing either some removal or more unblockable enablers in its place. Personally I'd swap them out for another two Aqueous Form, but you could also try Distortion Strike, Vapor Snag, or Disperse. The former two help your gameplan, the latter two help you stay alive to pull your gameplan off.
Smiliarly again, Call the Scions is too expensive to be an effective ramp spell, and the dorks are too small to make effective beaters. I say you're better off swapping them out for two more Llanowar Elves as a much more effective ramp spell. If you're afraid of sweepers or just prefer traditional ramp, you could opt instead for the OG Rampant Growth or even Harrow if you're feeling extra spicy (notice that harrow puts the lands into play untapped- you basically pay one mana to ramp on that turn!)
Civilized Scholar Flip is... well, it's something. I'm not trying to tell you what to do or anything, but why play this? I suppose it does help filter through your deck and does make a scary beater if you can make it unblockable, but it dies to literally everything. Electrolyze, blocked by a lingering souls token, pyroclasm, even night of souls betrayal. I'd say if you're going to play something with one toughness it would be better off being a mana dork. Alternatively you could swap this for another unblockable spell or some removal.
Hour of Need doesn't play into your main strategy pretty much at all but I do think the concept of turning a few mana dorks into 4/4 fliers is hilarious. I assume you really like this card, leave it in if it's fun. It could be replaced with something else to make the deck more competitive but sometimes you just have to stick to your memes.
That's all I can think of while sticking close to the $10 budget. If your budget goes up let me know, I've got a few more ideas

So right now I'm trying to decide between building Thantis the Warweaver
Legendary Creature - Spider
All creatures attack each combat if able.
Whenever a creature attacks you or planeswalker you control, put a +1/+1 counter on Thantis the Warweaver.
OR Xantcha, Sleeper Agent
Help me pool some cards that would be good with either of these guys to help me narrow down my choice.
For Xantcha I could focus on assisting Xantcha in combat with things like Fists of the Demigod, or focus on creating ludicrous amounts of mana to drain its controller and draw tons of cards.
Anybody have any other good suggestions on individual cards or overall themes to build these two around? Any and all help is appreciated!

This deck is super, super cool! One of the coolest I've seen, and such a breath of fresh air among all the boring carbon copy decks out there.
It looks like you're maintaining a strict budget, but if you ever decided to break it, Godsend seems like it'd be rad in here.
Awesome deck, great job!

Find as much as you can with an excellent power:cmc ratio..
You could use some Dredge or self mill techniques to get stuff straight to your 'yard.
Aim for the creatures that you want to keep on the board to have trample since they'll be stacked with +1/+1 counters, and/or use Overrun effects (Pathbreaker Ibex, Decimator of the Provinces, Craterhoof Behemoth).
Phew, I'm spent for a bit now. Over to someone else!

So, a bit late on the response.
thefallan I don't think Freyalise would be a good idea since so much of this deck is built around both Ghalta's mana cost and power, both of which have little overlap with Freyalise.
Anton-hangano Traxos, Scourge of Kroog seems decent, although worse than Hunted Troll. If I find that I need another Chad, he is quite high on the list. Myr Superion seems too inconsistent since I don't have 'that' many dorks.
