Since you yourself have talked about Windswept Heath, and fortunately its not the most expensive fetchland, I'll go ahead and propose a mana base with it:
In your Colors, Horizon Canopy is an Option, albeit a very expensive one.
Generally speaking, i think 5drop planeswalkers are too greedy, even with acceleration. The only reason you would Need Cryptolith Rite is to cast them, and rite is just a bad Card in many situations.

Your deck needs to be able to recover from a board wipe and even a minor one like Drown in Sorrow would probably set you back. Personally I'd remove Intangible Virtue and add Mentor of the Meek to give you card draw, though you might consider Leyline of the Meek. Other token spells which are worth using - Spectral Procession and Gather the Townsfolk.
Hope that gives you some ideas.

I have ideas, but let me first clear up a few matters. I think I see this deck as a spell deck. You cast instant and sorcery's with permanents on the field that generate tokens and damage to the player and later swarm the opponent.
Keeping that in mind I see cards like Hanweir Garrison as a break in the deck or rather making it clunky. So with that in mind here are some other cards I would replace: Path of Bravery, Faithless Looting, Burn at the Stake.
Removal is a key part of this deck, as well as damage prevention. Shining Shoal. Consider it, and Consider Spectral Procession. 6 CMC, not 3 CMC read the rules on it. There are more options like this. Now you have the ability to card remove, have higher CMC in a lower CMC deck and fill your token needs: Sorcery/instant needs.
IF you do the above, then consider Flame Javelin. Higher removal, low casting with high CMC. Staying budget without dropping money on lands comes into play now. Guess what. Thats modern, that is standard, that is magic. Buy one awesome land from time to time when you can and be satisfied that modern lands do not lose value on the norm.
:::::Now to your question:::::
(40 cents) Budget: Check.
Its an instant or socery: Check
Reusable, well it recycles so: Check
Helps against or with: Board wipes/sweeps
Lastly Terminus See all the above and think for about a budget potention 1 drop board wipe. not super budget.
Side Note: Buy Sea Gate Wreckage running one of these in modern decks will be a staple. Anyone that does not see well they do not see the value it offers decks like yours.

Looks much improved since my last visit.
I would drop anything with a CMC above 3 with exception of Spectral Procession. I would go up to 4 on that.

LeaPlath Thanks for the suggestions. I'll Take out Oath of Gideon in favor of an additional Spectral Procession and Gather the Townsfolk- Reason for Gather the Townsfolk over Raise the Alarm is because I have personally had more success with it in the past in different decks. Not to mention, If I draw Westvale Abbey Flip and have some Bitterblossoms on the field it wouldn't take too much effort to be able to flip the abbey and Gather the Townsfolk helps with that...Not to mention it has as i've said saved my ass quite a few times.

Interesting decklist. But tbh i can't really see this deck work out in modern. Modern is such a fast format, usually modern decks want to win on turn 4 max and so i cant really see the deck having a chance without Path to Exile and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben. Even on a budget you should find a way to put that cards in. I also think that out of the token creating cards only Doomed Traveler; Spectral Procession; Gather the Townsfolk and Elspeth are worth the inclusion. All the other cards are way to costly or slow for modern. I also think that you miss some sweet token related cards. Twilight Drover can create massive numbers of tokens with evasion. Militia's Pride rewards you for attacking with nontoken creatures. Also i would suggest Thraben Doomsayer if you fall behind on the clock.

So a word of forewarning, Token decks are often pretty anemic when it comes to finishing off the opponent, so they can be rather grindy to play more competitively, and also are typically tier 2 or lower.
That being said here is a pretty stock B/W Tokens list from back when the deck was tier 1.5-2, it is based off of the Modern Event Deck. It is missing Liliana of the Veil Though.
Long story short, B/W is usually the route to go as it gives you access to the best token generators Spectral Procession and Lingering Souls, as well as the best anthems Intangible Virtue. Black primarily provides good disruption.
As your deck is now I would Either Splash White (and probably ultimately black, going Mardu), or just go down the Combo Goblins route. Splashing White gives you better anthems and better token generators. To go the Goblin Combo route you would add in Krenko, Mob Boss and 4x Goblin Piledriver, and generally go from there.
