Exile target creature that dealt damage to you this turn.

Swords to Plowshares over Reciprocate, as it is a budget option, and is the best creature removal in the game, apart from some minor cases where Lightning Bolt, Fatal Push, Chain of Vapor, and Path to Exile are better, all in specific decks.
Soldier of the Pantheon is a really powerful card I would suggest, dependent on who you play against, like Dragon Hunter, but it can't be dealt damage by a multicolored creature or spell, and can't be blocked or targetted by one either, so it ends up that you can effectively get free wins against some decks!
Obviously, Recruiter of the Guard and a bunch of one-of cards like Palace Jailer, Sanctum Prelate, True Believer, Thalia, Heretic Cathar, and other 'hate' cards that almost instantly win against the right deck can be good, but isn't cheap to build.
War Priest of Thune can be good against enchantments, Accorder Paladin for a more aggressive strategy, Knight of the Holy Nimbus if you go against removal heavy decks, Riders of Gavony against any tribe, and Imposing Sovereign for fun. Even Field Marshal can be sweet!

If you want to go wide then Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite would be so good but it's ridiculously expensive...

In your maybeboard I like:
Giltspire Avenger Exalted and can deter attackers, but 3 colors and $1+ makes sense to be a cut.
I would make room for Battlegrace Angel, has exalted and gives your Exalted Attacker lifelink. $0.56!
Cathedral of War was the land I was thinking about Friday, but it's $1.50! Can't include.
Sovereigns of Lost Alara is very powerful, tutors the exact aura you need for any situation, and probably makes them unblockable or lifelink in the process. With every strike it becomes lethal. $5 hard to account for but might be a way.
Rhox Charger is exalted and he has built in Trample, 3/3 Exalted for CMC4 isn't too bad for $0.25.
Stoic Angel would be an auto-include for me, especially with all of your guys making creatures come into play tapped. Swing with your Vigilance (Flying) Angel alone, and avoid any type of counter-strike from opponents. No going to find a better card for $0.50.
Grunn, the Lonely King is another option, he's CMC6 for 5/5 no Trample, but when he attacks, Stack his triggered ability, and then layer on all the Exalted, after the exalted get added, he doubles himself. If you have the kicker 3 a 10/10 for 9 is still ok. Needs a Rancor but he's pretty reasonable, especially with all the built in evasion effects.
Suprised you don't have Knotvine Paladin, he gets +1 from the Exalted ability, and stacks a second +1 for each "untapped" creature, which they all are, so doubles the Exalted when he attacks, another good finisher like Grunn, the Lonely King when evasion is available.
Cold-Eyed Selkie can draw some cards, since your not using blue much you don't have as much draw, since he's still works. Also if you can Exalted and Islandwalk someone, can repopulate your hand.
Swords to Plowshares is the best removal in Budget for $1.
Sigil of Valor is the exalted equipment because it doubles the Exalted effects!.
Sigil of the Nayan Gods not bad, because if it useless, it has Cycling.
I'll continue further review later, off the top of my head,
Reciprocate generally bad, once it's hit your life it's too late, someone (situational) it will be good, but most creatures you NEED to remove aren't attacking, and if they are, the specifically have to attack you, and you have to choose to let them hit your life. Condemn is better because it can attack anyone, and doesn't have to connect to your life specifically.
Skarrg Goliath is too high CMC to be useful, and his bloodlust is also too high CMC.
More to come later, I used to have a Daxos of Meletis deck, so I have some ideas, but I utilized the quite a bit more. Fun Selesnya build. +1.

Personally I'd drop the Court Clerics for three Ajani's Welcome or an additional Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant giving you three each which gives you an open card meaning you could add another Gaze of Justice or put in three Reciprocates / Silences. You could drop the one Dwarven Priest for another Leonin Warleader or a second Shalai, Voice of Plenty.

Some quick and easy changes for you:
Phyrexian Arena is basically a strictly superior Underworld Connections (same mana cost but doesn't tie up a land).
You also have 2 Archetype of Courage, so you actually get a card slot back.

Huh, I could've sworn I put in Spreading Seas in my sideboard. Guess I forgot to save the deck. But yeah, I agree, the deck is pretty overboard on creature removal, probably because apart from exiles and counters I can't do anything for them. I will take out the Dissipation Field and some Reciprocate as well. Field of Ruin would also be suitable as I have enough basics for it, and mana base drain will come in handy. Thanks for your improvements!

I think dropping some of the bigger creatures for some 1-drop mana dorks would be worth it. In the same vein, dropping some of the Instant/Enchantments for some removal spells would help, too. Something like Prey Upon, Beast Within, Journey to Nowhere, Oblivion Ring, Celestial Flare, even Reciprocate would go a long way. It would also be a key slot of swapping out of the sideboard for spells like Naturalize, Disenchant, Revoke Existence, Creeping Corrosion, Back to Nature, Ratchet Bomb, etc, etc.
Also, I'd drop 4x of your basic fetches for Blossoming Sands or any other low-cost dual land.

Sorry for the late reply t3hdarkness. I totally love the suggestions! I will definitely need to change out some cards, like Reciprocate, Lich's Mirror, Jester's Cap and Shared Triumph. Thanks for the land suggestions too! I didn't really have a good place to start until you suggested Emeria, The Sky Ruin and Buried Ruin.
