Akroma's Memorial I know it's not the anthem effect you were mentioning, but still great.

Gruul War Chant + Familiar Ground is pretty frickin' good too...

Mirror Entity and Dragon Throne of Tarkir do a fantastic job of boosting your critters too.

Also, don't forget about Asceticism. Maybe Sigarda, Host of Herons and/or Tajuru Preserver if you have any Dictate of Erebos/edict effects in your playgroup.

Sigarda, Host of Herons would be what you're looking for for anti-sac. Not budget though. Also, you didn't link a deck so I cant really suggest improvements without an actual decklist. You linked the card itself.

Knight of the White Orchid is a bit tricky - it's an ok card, mostly, but not when you are on the play and hit your lands. But if you use Ghost Quarter it gets pretty good, since ghost quarter leaves you down a land, compared to your opponent. Also, 2/2 first strike can be randomly relevant. I've tried playing it turn 2 on the draw a few times, and that is pretty convincing against fair decks - suddenly you are ahead on mana, without having really spent a card on it. Also worth noting: Your land comes into play untapped. What is it you don't like about it being an ETB-effect?

Since you have Time of Need in your deck, more legendary angels instead of serra angel could be a way to go. Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Bruna, the Fading Light + Gisela, the Broken Blade, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, and Sigarda, Host of Herons, are all decent legendary angels, and bringing them as one-offs is ok, as long as you have tutors for them.

I would exchange Prepare for Path to Exile. It's a bit of a dull card in comparison, since it's played by everyone and their mother, but that is because of efficiency. One mana to get rid of a creature is ridiculous, even if your opponent gets a basic land. Of course the land is relevant in the earliest turns of the game. But from turn 3 and on, I don't think anyone plays creatures they would like to exchange for basic lands. So... try with a 2/2 split.

Aerial Responder... hmmm... what is important? Lifegain? flying? that it's a creature? that it's a 3-drop? There are all kinds of good 3-drops in modern, depending on budget. Eternal Witness, Kitchen Finks, Renegade Rallier, Mirran Crusader, Blade Splicer... it really depends on what you want. Or you could go down a mana on ccm, for something like Scavenging Ooze or Qasali Pridemage. Or you could go a mana up, and add a couple of token-producing planeswalkers (since they do pretty much the same as Oketra's Monument they benefit from the same cards as the rest of the token-plan) - it could be Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Elspeth, Knight-Errant.

I suggested Seraph Sanctuary because it's on-theme for your deck, not because it's particularly good in any way.

I just realized that its been a while since activity in the comments. You should consider adding Lyra Dawnbringer. You could also run Shalai, Voice of Plenty as the commander. I know that technically it would be green white as the deck so the solution would get go mono-white and not use the ability or potentially splash green for ramp. If you wanted to splash green you could add Sigarda, Heron's Grace, Sigarda, Host of Herons. Splashing grean may not be where you want to go with the deck but all three green white angels would add some very helpful protection.

Hey Everyone! I've decided I can't justify having a $1000+ Kaalia commander deck so I'm looking to trade her. I'm looking for the last $60ish of cards for my modern Titanshift deck. There is about $1200 worth of value in my binder and i only want about $60ish worth of cards. this is your chance to grab some serious staples!!

With a lot of control running around, I'd use the Worship flex slot to play Archangel Avacyn  Flip. If they play a Verdict and you are able to flash her in, that should be game right here. Choke and Elspeth, Sun's Champion are good side board options as well.

For E-Tron, the best thing to do is to make Knight of the Reliquarys bigger than their guys. Playing Sigarda, Host of Herons in the side is good tech against All Is Dust.

The normal Tron matchup is good enough where nothing too extreme needs to be done to the main/side board.

Angels are the coolest. That said, you may want to go a bit more controlling with the tribe since they're usually pretty high costed. Personally, i would not run the ramp that you are. I'd add more cards like Path to Exile, though it's not the most budget card. Creatures like Wall of Omens and Thraben Inspector are great because they replace themselves and provide a speed bump for the opponent. Brisela is a great top end, especially since Gisela is only a 4 drop. Luminarch Ascension with ghostly prison, Archangel of Tithes, and Baird, Steward of Argive would be a fun theme. Sigarda, Host of Herons is a legit card. Cards like Dromoka's Command, Eternal Witness, Harmonize, Oblivion Ring, and Renegade Rallier are al great cards to consider.

Hope this was spmewhat helpful

I feel like there needs to be more of an abrupt transition into the 'late game' mode. Cards like Dramatic Entrance with (Empyrial Archangel/Sigarda, Host of Herons/Sigarda, Heron's Grace), possibly even something like Pentad Prism, as at the moment it feels like the deck misses the 'window' created by the tax effects to make that game-winning play.
