Creatures can't attack you unless their controller pays for each creature he or she controls that's attacking you.

Arranging your decklist by price point is making it a little hard to analyze for anything but price but you might want to go a little pillowfort to help give the deck time to get established; Crawlspace , Propaganda , Ghostly Prison can all buy you time.
I also don't see a lot of removal in the deck so Swords to Plowshares , Path to Exile for some interaction and since this is artifact based Meteor Golem and Spine of Ish Sah getting recurred could be part of the plan to keep the board clear enough to get some work done.

No problem kasprl! Glad to have help!
I know it's not budget, but it can definitely help if your able to pick up a Cyclonic Rift !

Some budget cards you can utilize for evasion or survival are removal or bounce effects, aside from that countering key pieces are essential. Here might be some cards you can utilize that are in budget options.
Hope that helps!

I love the flavor of this deck! And it seems like you could get out of hand with your elementals and enchantment creatures! I think the mana-base could use a few more dual-lands (even some of the very cheap 'enter-tapped' lands). There are also tri-color lands that enter tapped and would help fix the mana. With all the enchantments you play, have you considered Sphere of Safety , Ghostly Prison , and Propaganda ? They're pretty budget, fits the theme, and makes it very difficult to attack you. Overall, this is awesome! +1!

Intriguing! Just want to ask a few questions about the enchantments ( Faces of the Past , Intruder Alarm ) since I'm not sure I completely grasp 100% how it elfball infinites. I think only Thornbite Staff completely works 100% of the time since it doesn't discriminate and doesn't care what type of creature dies, only if something does die; Vannifar's ability doesn't matter and we can do whatever we want, including a Lab Man win if Pod 2 is Elvish Visionary and Pod 4 is Symbiotic Elf . My understanding is:
- Faces of the Past : works until the second round of Pods, then you Pod Elvish Soultiller to reset the Elves like normal, untap Vannifar... but then what? If you were to pod Woodland Bellower (which came as a result of Podding the Soultiller), you wouldn't untap Vannifar since she isn't a Beast, and you wouldn't be able to find anything since there is no CMC 7 cost things here. How would the combo continue?
(I thought about it for a while when I was writing this and there is indeed an infinite as long as the Pod 2 is ALWAYS Dwynen's Elite as the Elf token can be sacrificed after Soultiller to restart the chain, then ending with a Pod into Caller of the Claw for infinite Beasts, but we need Concordant Crossroads out to win right then and there and lose to Cyclonic Rift , Propaganda and friends, etc... thoughts?)
- Intruder Alarm : Same logic; works until the second round of Pods, you Pod the Soultiller and reset the Elves, but since there is no other 6 cmc creature here, nothing would ETB and untap Vannifar. Aside from manually summoning a creature (ramp from Wood Elves as the Pod 3 in the chain is good) or using one of the untap abilities from stuff like Quirion Ranger and Kiora's Follower etc, is there a way to make the combo self sustaining with Intruder Alarm ?
If I'm also missing something here please let me know!

Dunce_Cap_Duck Thanks for the suggestions! I will definitely run Sol Ring (I already own one, as almost all Magic players do, so it won't count for or against the budget). Propaganda is awesome, as is Ghostly Prison , but they both cost about $7 which is outside of my price range. Thanks!

Propaganda for a little defense.
