Here are some combos:

Looking at you mana curve, I think that you could easily go down to 20 lands and be just fine. And If you are running 34 creatures, I'd suggest Collected Company unless this is supposed to be a more budget version. If it isn't supposed to be a budget version I would also suggest swapping Noble Hierarch in place of Avacyn's Pilgrim because it has 2 of the colors you need as apposed to just one. I am also going to suggest Path to Exile / Lightning Bolt / Lightning Helix because any deck needs at least a little bit removal. Thalia's Lieutenant is amazing in any humans deck. Militia Bugler could tutor up every creature you have except for Kessig Malcontents . If your deck relies on +1/+1 counters, I'm going to suggest Hardened Scales and Abzan Falconer .

@thebome101 Thank you! And thank you for the feedback! I had faintly thought of Panharmonicon and have one copy currently (yes it's quite a bit cheaper). My initial thoughts were this... that it was a dime in one hand and 10 pennies in the other. Doubling tokens creates double the damage output for Impact Tremors and Kessig Malcontents..
Upon further thought, however, Anointed Procession comes with the temptation of holding off on Kessig or Burn at the Stake when really, I should just be slamming those things down like there's no tomorrow. Dual Casting as well, can give me the double token output from my sorcery drops.. and turning all my Impact Tremors into Purphoros, God of the Forge's is quite attractive. Good suggestion! I'll make the change and keep my Anointed Processions nearby.

The price was one complaint, the deck isn't good at teaching. I am still confused as to the point of Mutavault, and I had been playing for two months (1 month since I was introduced to modern). This is the deck I know the most about, having been playing mono-white soldier tribal for the majority of my time in modern. I have beaten plenty of decks with them, and I know that Mutavault isn't a good fit. Hanweir Garrison very well with Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, and then you can get Hanweir Battlements as well. Boros is great with humans (Thatcher Revolt) for buffing the Champion of the Parish and Thalia's Lieutenant, other than that in red think Kessig Malcontents, Riot Ringleader and much more.
There is much more than just the price I had an issue with.

There are a number of cheap, effective red kards Keldon Marauders has fallen out of favour, but is a 2 mana lava axe when it works. Nivmagus Elemental is cheap and provides limited counterspell protection and the oppertunity for combo finishes with Temur Battle Rage. Sin Prodder is dirt cheap and very effective, even without cheap delve.
With super budget the lack of lightning bolt hurts red, and lack of boros charm red white so janky combo is usually the most functional option. Board flooding with Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen Dragon Fodder Battle Hymn Dragonrage Akroan Crusader Empty the Warrens, Haze of Rage and so forth to spam out a win. Guttersnipe used to be good but has fallen to more efficient options, leaving him pretty cheap.
Human tribal with Keldon Marauders/Thatcher Revolt/Kessig Malcontents is functional, especially with Gather the Townsfolk and Dearly Departed/Cathartic Reunion. For the non-$10 version there are some very competitive lists out there, but there are a lot of cards in modern that aren't valuable because they just aren't in short supply but are still super good.

In order for Evolving Wilds to be useful, there have to be basic lands in the deck. I'd recommend 10 Plains and 6 Mountain, and getting rid of Vault of the Archangel because this deck doesn't use black mana. Cloudshift seems like it would only be useful for Kessig Malcontents, so I would use fewer of each of those cards.
