Hey, glad it helped you out!
I'm showing $1,093.74 with the cheapest edition in LP-NM, on TCG Player. The reserved list prices on NM cards are weird right now, so expect to pay another $100-300 to get everything in near mint.
Lands are over a third of the deck's value. You could easily swap out the the more expensive options for budget duals or basics, doing your best to avoid ETB lands (Kaalia likes it fast). I'd say the best way to reduce the buy-in cost would be to skip the ABUR duals, enemy fetchlands, filter lands, Cavern of Souls, and Volrath's Stronghold. That'd save you almost $415 right there. The filters aren't 100% requires, by the way. I'd run snow basics if I didn't come across the expeditions for the bling factor.
As for the non-land cards, the most expensive would be Mox Diamond, Mana Crypt, Linvala, and Ravages of War. Those'd run you about $210 all together. I'd say the priority among them would be the Crypt above all else. Ravages is vital if you rely on MLD for your win condition, but thankfully you can always use Impending Disaster as a budget option. Linvala has value depending on your meta, and the Mox might be a personal call- I've seen arguments both for and against the Moxes. Either way, both could be back burner cards depending on how the deck plays for you.
All said, that's about $625 you could trim off the top, before accounting for budget replacements. It brings the buy-in from $1,100 to about $475. You could get the deck running for even less than that using creature filler or other budget stand-ins.
For reference, here's the in-cart prices of the specific cards I mentioned, mostly in LP:
- $80.81 Badlands
- $71.27 Mox Diamond
- $71.19 Scrubland
- $53.98 Cavern of Souls
- $52.99 Mana Crypt
- $52.44 Plateau
- $48.00 Arid Mesa
- $47.99 Ravages of War (Judge promo)
- $36.74 Linvala, Keeper of Silence
- $32.90 Marsh Flats
- $27.90 Volrath's Stronghold
- $24.75 Fetid Heath
- $19.29 Prairie
Good luck! Oh, and note that Kaalia's deck will be released in the Commander Anthology bundle that they have coming out soon. It may lower the prices on some of her cards, as well as Kaalia herself (who's running around $30 right now, i think?).

you should stick the dual lands in (Tundra, Underground Sea, Badlands, Taiga, Savannah, Scrubland, Volcanic Island, Bayou, Plateau, and Tropical Island.) Also, stick Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies in. That makes for some... really fun sliver decks. Fun, that is, for YOU!

Replace these with the fetchlands you're missing- Wooded Foothills, Bloodstained Mire, Scalding Tarn, Windswept Heath, Flooded Strand, Marsh Flats. These serve two purposes: they find your Sacred Foundry consistently (and Plateau if you ever go for ABUR duals), and they thin your deck of lands so you have a modestly higher chance of drawing spells as the game progresses. Tarn and Flats are spendy but the rest are quite cheap right now.

Thanks, cak01vej. The duals are just way more expensive; the cheapest version of Plateau costs just $1.50 online, whereas a Tundra costs around $9 and Volcanic Islands are like $27 each. Blue is the most popular colour in Legacy and Vintage so the demand and consequently the price for any dual-land with blue in it is much higher than the other colour combinations.

Really cool deck, Etched Champion is one of my favourite Magic cards ever! I might pick up your deck and fiddle with it to match my local playgroup's Modern/Casual format.
I personally don't use them because, they are not legal in my format, and physical copies are rare, and usually costs more than the entire rest of the deck combined. But if you can affort one why not the others? Tundra is strictly better than basic Plains and Hallowed Fountain.

After the introduction of Recruiter of the Guard i decided to change my Death & Taxes list to be more like the Imperial Taxes list (Imperial Taxes is a RW version of Death & Taxes running Imperial Recruiter and Magus of the Moon).
The only thing stopped me from playing the deck before was the price of Imperial Recruiter but now that we have an even better recruiter thats also white its suddenly affordable.
Now, my question is: Is it still worth it to splash red now that 1x Magus of the Moon is the only red card? 2x Cavern of Souls, 2x Plateau and 2x Arid Mesa is the lands used to cast Mister Moon and of course AEther Vial. Is 5 Plains too few if you are running one Magus of the Moon? Is there another white card that would better fit in the spot? Is there another good red card to make the splash more justifiable? Mainboard and sideboard (Sudden Demise is great for sideboard for example)
Heres my list:
