Slippery Karst Discussion

Yeah It That Betrays I realize may not be the best option here, even though I like it, it's costly.
Oh but I know what you can add, some of the cycle lands like Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, Tranquil Thicket, Slippery Karst, Blasted Landscape and Ash Barrens. I just thought since you had Archfiend of Ifnir you might want perhaps 2 of these or something.
Additionally here are a few other considerations:

If you are new to Legacy, I highly suggest you to play combo deck or some noninteractive aggro, because then you need to just learn to play your deck. If you want to play interactive deck, you need to also know what your opponent is doing and in Legacy "What is my opponent trying to do?" is quite open question. If you know what you are going to go against it's a lot easier, but you still need to learn more decks than by playing noninteractive decks. Familirize with format before playing interactive decks to know how to interact. Let's try to play some control then:
4 Drifting Meadow
4 Slippery Karst
4 Blasted Landscape
3 Swords to Plowshares
3 Gilded Light
3 Blade Splicer
4 Day of Judgment
2 Eternal Dragon
4 Wall of Roots
4 Astral Slide
3 Wall of Blossoms
2 Acidic Slime
4 Street Wraith
This is quite rough version and it's quite undercosted for your budget. You can improve it with Living Wish and wishboard, use Containment Priest for shenanigans and with more. You could add somewhere Lone Missionary somewhere or Reclamation Sage. Perhaps you want to splash a colour, anyway it's easily customizable for your own preferences. Your meta seems to be light on Abrupt Decay, so Astral Slide felt natural way to go.

What are the budget restrictions specifically

Looks pretty good, I would definitely include the cycling lands(Ash Barrens,Barren Moor,Slippery Karst, etc), they are great when Gitrog is in play and get even better when you can loam them back to your hand.

The only problem I see with this list, since I went through the same transition myself, is the lack of card draw. If you have other players in your playgroup giving you card draw consistently then this deck should perform admirably. Otherwise, you may experience a resource drought, and this deck may perform too slowly.
Since you want budget options, I will give you two reasonable options:
Cycle lands. Abuse these, they are so great for decks without blue. For green, there is Tranquil Thicket and Slippery Karst. There are complete cycles of each of these lands, so also make sure to have the black and white ones as well.
Phyrexian Arena. I know this is only one example, but I can think of no better example of pure card advantage in Commander (as before, without being blue). The card currently is only ~$3.50, so depending on how low your budget is, would fit in nicely. There are other effects like this as well, so maybe find some slots for those effects.
I started off very similarly with my own Ghave deck, lots of effective spells and no consistent way to get to them, it made my plays real clunky. So I hope to pass off what I learned from my experience to you.
Ghave is such a fun commander to play, I hope you have as much fun with him as I do! +1
You can also check out my deck for any other ideas, once you get an increased budget: Tastes like AGhave

Corpse Connoisseur is great!
Champion of Stray Souls have you thought this card is too slow
Scourge of Nel Toth is this card too slow
Verdant Force good enough?
if you're trying to combo, maybe Tooth and Nail.

Since Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord has that sweet reanimate ability by sacrificing a Forest and a Swamp, you could add some cards that abuse lands in your graveyard.
Centaur Vinecrasher is another really great card. He's proved to be explosive for me on turn 4-6.
I can't recommend Worm Harvest enough. You can cast it infinitely from your graveyard as long as you have a land to dump, and it gives you lots of tokens for sacrificing.
You can also check out my list (Meren's Grave Shenanigans) for any suggestions. I have a few cards to acquire yet, but I'm happy with its performance.
