For a deck with 3.1 cmc, you are running too few lands, with only two sources of ramp. 35-36 is better for control, less if you have more ramp. Because ramp is not available in your colors, mana rocks have to be used. Thought Vessel (although expensive), Darksteel Ingot, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress, Dimir Signet, Azorius Signet, Marble Diamond, Sky Diamond, Charcoal Diamond, Coldsteel Heart, Fellwar Stone, Commander's Sphere, Cultivator's Caravan. You should at least add the other signets and then think about some of the others mentioned. Because you're in blue, black, and white, you have access to single target removal spells like Pongify, Oblivion Ring, Murder, Mortify, Go for the Throat. The other upside of being in these colors is the access to good draw. While altar's reap and catalog are good, getting rid of your stuff and discarding cards only hurts you, especially with better options. Windfall, Blue Sun's Zenith, Divination, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood. Instead of essence scatter and negate, there are better counterspells that cost 2 mana, if that is what you're looking for; Counterspell and Arcane Denial. Both are not as restrictive, and in the case of arcane denial, giving your opponent cards typically doesn't matter as long as they've been disrupted. Also a 25 cent card that should be added to every list running black is Diabolic Tutor. Despite chromium's built-in protection, you should still run cards like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, Mask of Avacyn, or Whispersilk Cloak.

Good_knight Well I really don't know what you have so that makes things harder. I can offer some suggestions but that kind of depends on your meta. What is your playgroup like or are you talking about local game store? Do you play 1v1 or more?
If your 1v1 I suggest more spot removal. This should help you buy time to get your engine online. There are a ton of cheap options as white and black are good for this. If you have a local game store near buy, you might be able to do get these pretty easy. Afterlife, Swords to Plowshares, Blazing Hope, Crib Swap, Mortify, Profane Procession (this would be a good card for this deck even when you move beyond it simple trickets). Unmake, Walk the Plank, Go for the Throat. You get the idea.
Ok so some ideas for improving your creature pool. I tried to keep this pretty cheap. Dauntless Bodyguard, Chieftain en-Dal, Fiendslayer Paladin, Kinsbaile Cavalier, Knight of Dusk (A great cheap card for this deck. Just make sure you always have the mana up to destroy. Since it can be played at instant speed you can kill their creature after blockers are declared and damage is done. This is one of the reasons you should wait until second main to play nonessential spells. Lightwielder Paladin, Knight of Sursi, Mirror Entity, Pentarch Paladin.
Artifacts and lands: Whip of Erebos, Fellwar Stone, Rupture Spire, Path of Ancestry Unclaimed Territory . If you want to splurge a little bit get an Isochron Scepter and put something like Go for the Throat on it.
This are just suggestions. Take all or some. On August 10th the new preconstructed Commander decks come out. In the past these have been pretty awesome for right out of the box. You can always tailor make them. They are normally worth well over the MSRP.
Also don't let the prices here scare you too much. They are just a generalization. You could go to tcgplayer and get better values. Even after you choose, they can optimize your cart to get a lower value.

Hey man. Thank you so much for your feedback. I appreciate it!
The problem, as always, is space. I am going to continue playtesting this deck while keeping your suggestions in mind. The current list is so very very tight. Here are some notes regarding a few choices that I previously considered.
Anguished Unmaking: It should be in here. I played against an Avacyn, Angel of Hope deck the other day and was cursing myself for not packing more exile effects. The thing is Mathas, Fiend Seeker triggers off destroy effects. It's what keeps us drawing cards. That's why I opted for Mortify instead. I did, however, add Slaughter the Strong after that match. It's another boardwipe that forces sacrifice so it can knock off Avacyn and other difficult to de with creatures. Having said that, you're probably right. I will most likely introduce Anguished Unmaking to the list.
Toxic Deluge, Boros Charm: I am a budget player and these are surprisingly expensive on MTGO. You can pick up a Badlands for a couple of tix but Toxic Deluge is inching towards the 8 tix mark. I own a paper copy of TD though and I totally agree with you - the best board wipe in the game. I'll eventually bite the bullet and pick one up online. It's just a matter of time.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite: Oh Hell yes! This would be perfect in the deck. No doubt pricey, but I will look into it tonight. I think it would fit the theme, flavour, and mechanics of what the deck is trying to achieve.
Necropotence: That triple black though! Yes, it is awesome. And yes I own it. I'll see if I could squeeze it in.
Thanks again for your help. I'll keep an eye out on your posts and will add my own comments as well. Love your philosophy and definitely want to encourage that.

One of the most powerful combos available in Scion decks is Worldgorger Dragon and a reanimation enchantment. These combo to flicker all your permanents infinitely, giving you infinite mana and a win with any damaging etb/ltb triggers. Since you already have a couple of enchantment-based reanimation spells, this combo is very easy to fit in. In addition, one of my favorite reanimation enchantments is Necromancy. Being able to reanimate creatures at instant speed is very powerful, and I feel that an extra mana is not too much to pay for the added flexibility.
You've got quite a bit of basic land fetch in your deck, so maybe running a few more basics would be a good idea. One other thing: Traverse the Ulvenwald, while quite a bit more expensive than Lay of the Land, is strictly better, and you should be able to enable delirium a decent amount of the time. Another powerful reanimation target that is especially good with Scion is Moltensteel Dragon, letting you pump Scion without spending any mana. Finally, Murder seems a bit subpar when you have access to so many colors. Putrefy, Mortify, Beast Within, and Terminate all seem quite a bit better.

Grand Abolisher is very nice, means Kaalia of the Vast can attack and play an A/D/D on your turn without interference. He is $6 though, so doesn't help your under $200 budget, but you have some room it looks like.
Karmic Guide is pretty cheap, has protection: and has recursion built-in, I really like her, she can be abused too if you choose. Could easily replace Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, he's too random, and can't get your graveyard.
Should also spend the $8 on Master of Cruelties. Instant kill-con.
Archfiend of Depravity is a reasonably good budget demon. Mortify is a good budget removal spell. Aegis Angel is a good budget angel, and protects Kaalia of the Vast. Bladewing the Risen is good budget recursion dragon. None are auto-includes though, but there's some stuff there they could replace.
Hellspark Elemental feels wrong, does he combo something? No synergy.
Battlefield Forge is a budget land that can get rid of some of the "ETB Tapped" lands your running.
Crackling Doom feels in the flavor of this deck because of the red spells you play. Thunderous Wrath is awesome to top deck, but sucks in the hand, can always just burn a player if drawn at a inconvenient time. Bogardan Hellkite also feels kind-of in this flavor too.
Flameblast Dragon won't work if he enters tapped and attacking, you'll have to wait until next turn to activate his ability.
I'm testing Demonlord Belzenlok, I think he's going to work out, I have a feeling.
Necropotence is $6 I believe, but can help with the draw issues.
Hopefully you find something useful here. Nice build. +1.
