Mystic Speculation was something I thought about a lot as I just have two sitting around, I may try out two copies as with thassa it isnt something I need, but in a crunch the dig is just so hard to pass up.
As for Crucible of Worlds, the synergy is nice, but I just feel like it would be a wasted slot. As a control deck we need to stall and it can help that cause, but I feel like there are other things the deck would want to do.
Blessed Alliance is a good idea though. It may not crack my main, but I need to test against the field to see if that holds up. Im also considering a Blood Moon strategy in the side for the odd matchups (control, maybe even D.Shadow since they dont like to get basics until late in the game) and the obligatory Crumble to Dust to nix Tron which Blood Moon aids in as well. I was thinking to add Kor Firewalker or even Bonfire of the Damned for aggro matchups, and then the other flex spots would be meta dependent. One big issue to play against is Lingering Souls though so finding a good answer for that should be paramount as well because once they know its miracles, they will just hold up souls until we Entreat if they are smart

That's everything I have that's unlisted from your wants. Everything that's listed as a match I checked to make sure I still have, so request anything. There are a few cards that I've offered to other people for trades, so if you want them I'll wait a day or two on their reply (specifically, the Eldrazi Displacers you mentioned).
Since you mentioned edition, I tried to be accurate on what printing each card is with these. I can't guarantee that everything in my binder is 100% accurate on edition, but I try to do my best to make sure each card is at least showing the correct art and card frame.
Cards of yours I'm specifically interested in are: Diabolic Intent, 2 Stoneforge Mystics, Gate to Phyrexia, Monastery Mentor, 2 Toxic Deluge, Forbidden Orchard, and Quirion Ranger, though of course I'll trade for any other matches as well.
Hope to hear from you.

One of our local players had a lot of success playing Esper Delver with Death's Shadow, calling it Suicide Delver. I like the combo a lot and think it's hilarious, but some decks (namely Burn) are going to give you a headache.
You may not even need Plunge into Darkness and could probably cut down on copies of Angel's Grace. You still get "Oops? I win!" occasionally that will put your opponent on tilt. Once they see the interaction, they can't afford to tap out turn 2 or later to Death's Shadow.
And while we're at it, all of this stuff being dumped into the graveyard allows you to play Tasigur, the Golden Fang.
For reference (I'm not sure on his exact list), my buddy's deck was something like:

You should definitely consider Rest in Peace in your sideboard since it hoses a lot of other decks. Instead of 4 Kor Firewalker I would suggest a 2/2 split with Burrenton Forge-Tender, which has more utility for your deck. My personal opinion is that Silverblade Paladin is not that high impact and you might want to play Gather the Townsfolk as it synergises well with the rest of your deck. You can consider a mono-white token swarm strategy. In that vein, Doomed Traveler is a much better one-drop than Soldier of the Pantheon too. Metallic Mimic can be yet another Human lord in a pinch. Mana Tithe can be better than Grand Abolisher if you want to stop things on curve. And remember, if you side in Stony Silence, take out your Thraben Inspector first.

This looks really good with the budget you've allotted to yourself! I play humans in modern as well (although I definitely didn't budget mine because I have no willpower), so I have a few suggestions for you. I understand that you want to keep the deck at around $100, so feel free to disregard any cards you may consider expensive. I'm going to mention them though in case you ever have the chance to trade up to them or you just want to save up towards them.
Kor Firewalker is the card to play instead of Lantern Scout against aggro and burn. Just about any aggressive deck you see will play red, and this can really seal the deal. If you like Ranger of Eos (a card I'll mention in a few moments), Burrenton Forge-Tender can also be good because it is tutorable, and can protect your team against red damage based wipes or trade with burn spells.
Mirran Crusader is really good sideboard tech for $2. Playing this against Jund is really solid.
Ranger of Eos is a solid way to recover on the board against wipes. I personally prefer this to Make a Stand in the sideboard because you don't need to constantly be holding up mana, you can just play it afterwards fetching two Champion of the Parish and get right back on track. The MM3 version is super cheap now compared to what the original was.
Brave the Elements is absolutely insane, and I personally believe it is an auto-include in any white weenie build. Allowing your guys to dodge removal, damage based wipes, or just become unblockable by a color is super great for 1. It also gives you outs when your opponent has built up a large boardstate that you don't have much hope of getting through.
Path to Exile is a bit more expensive, so maybe this would be something you could work towards. The new version is about $6 each right now, which is pretty solid for arguably the best removal spell in modern. Having removal will really help you to interact with other decks and remove blockers, so I'd seriously consider this if you can.
Thraben Inspector is no slouch. You should consider this card as a 3-4 of if you have trouble with midrange or control in your meta. The extra draw also helps your to get to your sideboard cards a little faster, and helps you to have ample gas to go into longer games. One other thing to note is it helps you so that you get less blown out by mass damage effects like Zealous Persecution and if pumped Pyroclasm/Kozilek's Return that will occasionally come in against you games 2 and 3.
Precinct Captain is pretty good and could either replace Hanweir Militia Captain Flips or Consul's Lieutenants. The reason this might be a bit better is because it is a bit better against targeted removal assuming it can get a hit in. I wouldn't say it is strictly better than the above mentioned cards I think you could replace with it, but if you find that you struggle against that sort of thing, I'd look into him. Helps that he is less than $.50 each.
If there is anything else I can help you with let me know! I'd love to talk in further detail or answer any questions you might have. Good luck with the brew!

you can probably take out one Rest in Peace in sideboard for Grafdigger's Cage, and one Kataki, War's Wage for Ethersworn Canonist. Also, instead of Burrenton Forge-Tender, try Kor Firewalker or Leyline of Sanctity.
