Here's some recommendations, budget conscious where I can be.
Lightning Greaves is a critical component of Kaalia of the Vast , I play multiple tutors for it, like Steelshaper's Gift and Stoneforge Mystic . Lightning Greaves is a must, if you can't connect a Haste Kaalia of the Vast swing your going to have a bad time.
Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is a staple, the double ended effect is really the key. She is a bit pricey, so I'll offer some other options tool.
I would try and hone in on a desired goal and synergize around that. Mine is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel , Land Destruction / Indestructible, Liliana's Contract / Shadowborn Apostle type decks, Worldgorger Dragon , Extra Combat Phases.
You have a little bit of Legendary sub-theme, some protecting yourself and Kaalia of the Vast sub-theme Magus of the Moat / Boros Charm , some recursion with Phyrexian Reclamation . You've got a very strong base of cards, once you pick a synergy, you definitely want to synergize around those core abilities.
You have lots of great cards, and I bet it's extremely fun to play! The Signet's are good, Talisman of Indulgence is cheap and better, I also feel like in most situations Fellwar Stone is better than the signet too. But because of the cost of the other mana sources, augmenting with Signets is a fantastic idea.
I don't like Subterranean Tremors , small ground walkers should matter too much to you, and all of your ramp comes from artifacts so destroying those is not a great idea. If your getting a Lizard, something is off the rails. Something like Vandalblast is better for Artifact control.
Chancellor of the Annex doesn't seem strong enough for the CMC7, or Stax enough. Odric, Lunarch Marshal seems a little out of place, the A/D/D are pretty tough on their own, if you have enough where engaging Odric, Lunarch Marshal to multiply their abilities you should be winning anyway without him.
I don't see anything out of place here, other than some of my comments.
Adarkar Valkyrie has many infinite combos (like infinite combat with Aurelia, the Warleader ) for example. I have a bunch under my Alternative Synergies Considered if your interested. She's powerful, can establish some combos, and fits the build in a budget format.

It does the same thing that Secret Salvage does just slower but it’s a great back up.

I LOVE THE DECK. I'm actually trying to make a Persistent Petitioners Reanimator deck right now, but I wasn't able to figure out what to target with reanimation spells. You figured it out though.
1) Take out Thrumming Stone , yes the card can do broken things, but I don't know how beneficial it will actually be in this deck. Also the decks that it is used in are very straight forward ones with no set up ( Relentless Rats and Rat Colony ), not things that need set up ( Shadowborn Apostle ).
2) Take out Avacyn, Angel of Hope , yes she is a great card, but when she's the only big body in a deck the body itself won't do much the same way mill doesn't do much to a group of 3 opponents. Also what in this deck would your opponents want to blow up on your battlefield? In the end she is just a defensive card in this deck that will take way too much set up to benefit from.
4) The mana base, before I get into my suggestions on the mana base I will just say any base can benefit from a ton of fetchlands and other things like that and I'm not gonna sit here and just tell you to add in every fetchland in your colors. Now to my suggestions, cut all taplands they hurt a deck much more than you may think.
Cuts in the Land Base:
J) As far as I can tell you don't seem like you'll be going to combat much and if you're not then Glacial Chasm would be great.
BTW, when I finish designing my deck list I'll let you know what it is in the comments here so you can take a look at if you want.

Recently this Podcast did this episode on their personal spellbooks. I thought it would be cool if we did the same thing. I'm going to base mine just off cards that mean a lot to me or have been my favorites.
Karn, Silver Golem - my first commander, I still have the deck. I should probably get that up on this website...
Killing Wave - I love giving people bad choices to make and everyone underestimates these cards. Trust me after the 5th bad choice you have to make you'll be feeling the pain.
Queen Marchesa - I had built a few half hearted pillow fort decks before finding her but she leads my first real pillowfort deck. A strategy that I rather enjoy.
Mairsil, the Pretender - Leads my absolutely favorite deck. I've always loved doing weird combos and Mairsil combines cards in ways they are not meant to be. This leads to having the highest potential number of combos in a single deck.
Shadowborn Apostle - I still haven't really settled on who I want as the commander of my Apostle deck but I always have fun charging in with these guys and then bringing out ridiculous demons later in the game.
Vraska the Unseen - I just really like this character... She needs a version that can be my commander!
Quillspike and Devoted Druid - Cheating here a bit since I'm counting this as one 'signature spell' but this is the first combo I remember discovering myself. In reality I was far from the first person to see it but I didn't know that.
Stuffy Doll - I need this to be a legendary creature... It is just such an awesome card and so funny to me!
