I don’t have a ton but notable things I do have are Brazen Borrower, 2 Dig Through Time, Godless Shrine, 2 Drowned Catacomb, 2 Isolated Chapel, 2 Sphinx's Revelation, 2 Absorb, Kaya, Orzhov Usurper, Nyxbloom Ancient, and Temple of Abandon.
I have more stuff, but that’s just off the top of my head. Any idea what I can do about the binder?

Hey, nice budget version of Teysa.
Karmic Guide and Reveillark are excellent with the Aristocrat strategy. They can reanimate each other and with a sac outlet they make a dying loop with each other. This loop also lets you reanimate all the 2 or less power creatures in your graveyard with Lark. Adding an aristocrat before or reanimating one during the loop can be a win condition.
Lark triggers Teysa when it leaves the battlefield, if it left the battlefield as a result of it dying, letting you reanimate four creatures. Even without Guide Lark is worth adding because of the interaction with Teysa.
Buried Alive and Final Parting are budget tutors that can setup this interaction. Altar of Dementia is a two drop budget sac outlet that can infinite mill your opponents with Guide + Lark. Or use Dementia in combination with Guide + Lark to self-mill yourself until you mill an aristocrat to reanimate with Lark.
Good luck with your deck.

I don't if you'd like suggestions on a budget, so I'll try to stay in the middle ground about it.
Unless you already have those laying around in your collection, don't buy Marsh Flats . They're extremely expensive, and since you're playing in a casual group there's no need to have such card. You can, instead, use Temple of Silence which is waaaay cheaper and allows you to manipulate your next draw.
Rather than Sorin Markov , who doesn't benefit your strategy at all, you can run either Elspeth, Sun's Champion , who allows you to stall by making tokens or blowing up the stronger creatures on the board, or Elspeth Tirel , who lets you gain life and can also make tokens.

I am interested in the Isolated Chapel . Unfortunately that is all on this list. If you have anymore of the UB or UW “buddy lands” I would happily make a deal for a bunch from you. If not, I’m afraid it isn’t worth your time for just the chapel. Let me know if you have anymore unlisted to sell.

Made quite a few wholesale changes to test,
3 months ago
- Dark Confidant for card advantage
- Kitchen Finks gets you life gain for burn
- 2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet can get a win
- Damnation is a 4 mana boardwipe that is easier to cast
- Isolated Chapel is a land consideration
- Anguished Unmaking is better than spark being it gets ride of the restriction and you have life gain.
- Running creatures will help protect your plains walkers as well as provide a clock. It allows you to get worship as a SB or MB card which can be very powerful, if you opponent cannot deal with is. (It can also be found in Gideon spell book).
- Stony Silence should be in your SB and Rest in Peace should also probably be in there as well

Hey, fine budget version of Kaalia and nice description/primer.
Manalith, Mana Geode, Boros Cluestone, Rakdos Locket, Orzhov Locket, Armillary Sphere, Star Compass. Consider cutting these for better budget mana rocks?
- Talisman of Hierarchy
- Talisman of Conviction
- Fellwar Stone
- Boros Signet
- Orzhov Signet
- Rakdos Signet
- Mind Stone
The main purpose of playing so many mana rocks is to ramp into Kaalia. Two drop mana rocks are better than three drop rocks even if the three drop rocks can be saced later on to draw. The draw from Lockets/Cluestone is not worth playing them over a Talisman or Signet as a Talisman or Signet can give you a full turn or two faster at casting Kaalia.
More haste enablers is another way to increase speed.
Out of these budget options Tempest is the best because Kaalia has flying and all the other big creatures here also have flying. Tempest is also very good with Utvara Hellkite and her ability to create Dragons. Battlements is a land that can ETB untapped which for one red can give Kaalia haste.
For more speed then you want most of your lands to ETB untapped. If you can't afford many dual lands that ETB untapped then play more basic lands instead of lands such as Forsaken Sanctuary, Stone Quarry, Bloodfell Caves, etc. Signets are good with basic lands because any one basic land can be tapped to make two different colors. Budget lands to consider adding:
- Caves of Koilos
- Battlefield Forge
- Ash Barrens
- Tainted Field
- Foreboding Ruins
- Opal Palace
- Dragonskull Summit
- Isolated Chapel
- Clifftop Retreat
If willing to spend a little more for the manabase then adding the Check lands: Dragonskull, Isolated, Clifftop are good lands when playing basic lands.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Forsaken Sanctuary
- Stone Quarry
- Bloodfell Caves
- Scoured Barrens
- Wind-Scarred Crag
- Painted Bluffs
- Seraph Sanctuary
- Mana Geode
- Boros Cluestone
- Rakdos Locket
- Orzhov Locket
- Armillary Sphere
- Star Compass
- Trailblazer's Boots
- Hoard-Smelter Dragon
- Desecration Demon
