So I have few suggestions while staying on your budget theme and the high risk idea.
The most expensive of my three recommendations is a $20 card called Concordant Crossroads. This card is exactly that, high risk high rewards as all of your creatures start doing things right away and will potentially throw that hasty Ghalta boy into the fray much sooner.
If you find things problematic in the form of your creatures always being killed running something like Fecundity might be fun! It gives you another risky form of card draw as it potentially gives your opponents that option too.
I think one of my favorite green cards sitting at $2 dollars might be just right for you! Recycle offers lots of benefits at the cost of going down to two cards every turn. Every card you play, including lands, draws you a card. Suddenly cards like Elvish Piper with a Seedborn Muse quite fun.
I would not cut the Taunting Elf like you previously mentioned. With the amount of damage you commander does that would be crazy!
Since you mentioned your meta is "swarming" with flyers, why don't you try replacing a single flying removal or wipe with Sandwurm Convergence? This will take care of the problem a little longer unless you experience you are with a play group that has a lot of targeted removal and board wipes for enchantments. Another one is Katabatic Winds. Just a couple ideas for more funny flying hate that can be more permanent.
Maybe if you like to swing a lot, Constant Mists is always a good one to throw into the mix. Also your mention of Wood Elves would be a far better replacement in the deck for Sylvan Awakening. I know those two are not comparable, you might consider changing those two.

Always happy to hear from you and Toxicwolf! It's nice chatting with people and hearing your suggestions!
On another note, I've taken on a big mtg-related art project lately, and I'd love to share it with the two of you once I get it farther along! That's okay, yeah?

With regards to cuts, you can cut more than I'm recommending, but I figure I'd start it off
Seeker of Skybreak - Does nothing by itself
Skyshroud Ranger - Bad without lands
Sylvan Messenger - Eh, I just don't personally like it. Can whif, put important cards away, only hits elves. Just an eh card for me
Taunting Elf - Bad
Uktabi Wildcats - Even worse

Found an interesting card recently for own Marisi deck. Taunting Elf practically gives another creature unblockable 90% of the time. It's cheap but also only really a one time use. It's a haymaker against my friend's Arcades, the Strategist deck while he just has normal walls.

Nice work!! I got the itch myself to build on a budget and there's a lot of crossover between the two, especially the Taunting Elf style creatures.

Not to say that I haven't enjoyed miracle Revenge of the Hunted onto an Engulfing Slagwurm or Precursor Golem before (still events that end the game), but yeah protection isn't really my thought on something to do with a lure creature.

I do enjoy seeing people use banding. It is a powerful ability that people do not use because they do not take the time to try to understand it. Banding is great with other abilities. Taunting Elf banded with Camel and Elven Warhounds clears the board for you. Obviously Warhounds is a good little slow for vintage but you get the point. If you haven't, I suggest understanding banding. The deck looks amazing.
