Cards I would cut/replacement:
For Win conditions:
Really up to you tbh. But i think the following options synergize well with your deck.
1) Artifact Win Cons:
Lattice + Forge + Nevi disk. (or really any destroy all artifact)
- If this is the route your pursue. Invest is artifact tutors like Fabricate, Treasure Mage, Arcum Dagsson, etc...
2) Bounce win con
This one is a bit tricky, but can be done.
This usually revolves on getting ahead with mana rocks or using trickery.
3) Cloning / stealing wincons / game ending spells
4) Entering the infinte.
Any win con that works with Enter the Infinite.
Infinite mana or omniscience is a play your deck
or even just a Psychosis Crawler.
- You might have to make more room for these win conditions. but it at least provides you with options assuming that your opponents don't have much to work with

Also, same situation, can you use the free spell to cast a counter spell against Negate?

If you keep with a low cost list, you'll need some value, you could try, Dynavolt Tower or Thing in the Ice Flip, but I don't agree about removing all the Pull from Tomorrow or Chandra, Torch of Defiance...
Since you play at instant speed, you might consider playing Brutal Expulsion, Lightning Axe, Hungry Flames, and Fall of the Titans. Also, if your meta is really aggro-based, try playing more Censor main and put Negate to the sideboard...
For your sideboard, I'm not sure about Bedlam Reveler, you could put it main instead, cause side, you'll rarely put it in, same thing for As Foretold... Fiery Temper is great, when you discard it... Your odds are not for it now...
For the other options, Fevered Visions is made for control matchups and as my frieds say "put four or put not". Torrential Gearhulk or Goblin Dark-Dwellers can cast you a surprise Expedite not to neglect...

Thanks, that's very nice of you to say. :)
This deck is about $15 apart from the lands, which you can EASILY pick up online each for about $2-4 (depending on the colors). So yes, this deck is indeed budget as you can buy the entire thing for around $70-80.

As a 1x of Tasigur, the Golden Fang, you should be fine. I honestly considered adding a 1x of. However, I opted out. I would still run him in a moments notice. Thought Scour, for me, has always been fair to me. Whenever I play a based graveyard shell--I include it. I moved it down to a 2x of. I enjoy it because it can trips, all while adding to the plan. Grisly Salvage is a card that I had looked at when the deck was first in it's infancy. It is decent, but as you stated; being able to drop a 2 mana threat, just works better, for 2 cmc. It is not a bad card, by any means. If anything, perhaps a 1x of? I am just sold on Scour!
Moving onto Liliana of the Veil. She is alright. I am honestly starting to not care much, for her in general, but she stays because she is an enabler. A lot of people will say that she does not "work" with counter magic or "draw" style decks, unless you run Dark Confidant, but in theory-- has more card draw then Confidant ever had, so there really is not much of an issue. Sure, under normal circumstances there may be small problems, but in a deck that needs card types in the graveyard to make better threats, or use Snapcaster Mage, makes for better synergy. With the 2x of Stubborn Denial--they work great! I almost wanted to shoot up to 3x! They are 1 mana Negates--especially with our creature package. I definitely agree with your analysis of Traverse the Ulvenwald, and Rhonas the Indomitable. I am just waiting for that card to be printed. I pre ordered 4x Foil Cryptic Serpents in case they sky rocket. I think it is a cross between Bedlam Reveler & Gurmag Angler, but better > no discard, or removing the grave!
Garruk Wildspeaker is still a good card and I have considered moving to 5x planeswalkers in the mainboard. I thought about taking out 1x of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, for a 1x of garruk. I think the new Nissa will be what we need. It plays additional lands, casts creatures, and can be a late game top deck--that swings for 10 damage--on top of your Tarmogoyfs.
Oh, I will! That is the goal. Until then I have to settle for mix & match.

I must have made it not clear. You don't want to ever see a Torpor Orb as it kills your deck, it is a card that will be sideboarded against you as it makes your deck useless, if anything put the Negate's or more Leveler's there

After playtesting a similiar brew, I'm not sold on Drake haven or Faith of the Devoted in this deck... I think Archfiend of Ifnir and Curator of Mysteries actually want more cheap cyclers to enable their payoffs more than the deck wants another payoff in the form of the enchantments. Removing them for more versatile and cheap cyclers also allows you to reduce the land count by on or two.
In place of the enchantments, I'd suggest trying a few Hieroglyphic Illuminations as both another source of card draw and cheap () cycling. I'd also recommend a couple copies of Grasp of Darkness and Essence Scatter for more ways to deal with Gods, other big creatures, and Felidar Guardian. You may even be able to cut a copy of Anguished Unmaking at that point. Lastly I think I'd recommend a couple Negates.
Just my thoughts! Maybe you've found your shell to be better at utilizing the enchantments but I've found Archfiend and Curator can beat down well enough on their own backed up by more spells!
