I love the synergy between Tana & Sidar...I think these two were made for each other more so than any other 2 partners.
Beyond that I think you got lost....Single target pump spells / bloodrush effects and the like are horrible in multiplayer games....unless this is intended solely for 1 v 1, I'd say ditch ALL of them. Aside from Intangible Virtue I wouldn't put any other static effect Anthems in either...once you get your tokens to be bigger than 2/2 then you just lost all synergy with Sidar...and have defeated yourself. Collective Blessing, Gaea's Anthem > out.
Creatures / Spells that will only ever give you 1 token (in addition to the creature that comes with it) also not that effective. Again unless this is 1 vs 1. Attended Knight and Tukatongue Thallid and such...out...
Deckbuilding for edh: When I build an edh deck, I too just start throwing cards at it, then cut lots then try to figure out how much ramp I need, and how much card draw I need, and how much removal I'm going to put in. These three things I put in pretty much EVERY deck. I may not run much but at least a little. (I'm only seeing a few of each on your list) After I get things balanced out and make my cuts I work the land base usually 35-39 lands depending on the deck/mana curve, amount of ramp ect. This deck I'd say 36-37 lands.
I'm not going to price check all the following recomendations, but bear in mind the tcg prices on this site doesn't account for different / older prints / damaged card discounts ect, though a few still might be 20 cents over your budget, but I'm gonna list them anyways.
Cheap removal: (keep Pacifism if you must pick 3-5 here also) Revoke Existence, Fate Forgotten, Oblation, Terastodon, Smash to Smithereens, Entrapment Maneuver, Desert Twister, Scour from Existence ... there's several others but still this is a descent selection...
Cheap Card Draw: There really isn't much in the way in these colors to begin with, even less on your budget... maybe throw Faithless Looting a few cards that give you the Monarch like Protector of the Crown and or Crown-Hunter Hireling and get a Skullclamp and maybe a Slate of Ancestry once you can find/trade for/afford one (they're only $1.50 tops)
Cheap Efficient Token Gen: You got a few good ones already a few more worth mentioning, Decree of Justice, Sporemound, Ezuri's Predation, Twilight Drover, and again...maybe later add Rith, the Awakener and or Sigarda, Heron's Grace.
Cheap Pump: Aside from Borrowed Grace, which you could leave in or not, you really only need a few good GLOBAL pump spells spells for finishers. Usually I'd suggest something like Beastmaster Ascension, but in this case again...no synergy with Sidar. I'd probably throw Titanic Ultimatum and Overwhelming Stampede (stronger 1x use versions of Overrun) and also throw a Leonin Sun Standard at the deck for repeated use/abuse after declare blockers step. Those three alone should probably do it.
Cheap Land Base: Aside from basics there are quite a few good lands to run in budget builds in the case of a Naya deck, you've already listed Jungle Shrine (I'd ditch the bounceland), there's also Naya Panorama, Rugged Highlands, Blossoming Sands, Wind-Scarred Crag, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse. I'd run every one of these, and then basics for the rest. (Again, 36-37 total lands for this deck.)
Yea...so ...holy wall of text Batman, hope some of it helps, gl & hf

Got here from your forum post...
It does seem a little rough and going in too many directions but not too bad. (I have a few themed casual edh decks that are worse)
I'm not a fan of sub-par tutors... (or excessive tutoring in a casual deck for that matter but that's just me) I'd probably ditch Beseech the Queen & Diabolic Tutor for more draw power, or just dump them altogether for more room as you don't need them to combo out or anything.
I'm not personally a fan of running heavy tokens without at least a few global pumps... Leonin Sun Standard and Cathars' Crusade would be good here, though Cathar's would be nombo with Mentor of the Meek. Decree of Justice, Sigil of the Empty Throne and Twilight Drover could also be good here.
I'd probably cut Magister of Worth, Ankle Shanker and a few of the sub-par Monarch related cards too to make room...
Just my thoughts hope some of it helps...anyways hf & gl

I haven't seen a Blood Illness list in quite some time, so +1 for bringing back such a unique build! (It never really left the kitchen table but it was fun)
A couple suggestions,
Since you aren't using white (which would give you access to Twilight Drover, Suture Priest, Zealous Persecution, and Orzhov Pontiff) I'd recommend playing some kind of direct tutor effect to get you illness or a hunted creature, (I don't know exactly what, I know Dizzy Spell is the only transmute for a one drop it's just an idea) simply to improve consistency.
In any case it's nice to see an older deck brought back, Cheers!

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.

Hey the.beanpole! Thanks for your comment!
Leonin Relic-Warder actually looks really great! Thank you! On a scale of 1 to 10, how worthwhile do you consider Voldaren Pariah Flip to be? Twilight Drover was removed because it was a bit slow, but with Ashnod's that may change.
Enduring Renewal looks great, but I don't really care to cast artifacts, even if I can sac em.

Eliminate the Competition and Gaze of Justice seem a little redundant with what your commander is doing. I generally try to stay away from one-shot effects in this format unless they are really back-breaking or X-for-1s or something. Revoke Existence could easily be Leonin Relic-Warder to give you extra-sac fodder that still perma exiles if you time it right. I also play Voldaren Pariah Flip in my Teysa deck. Twilight Drover is always good in token decks, especially Teysa, and provides a mana sink as well. There is also the Enduring Renewal + Ornithopter/Memnite/Phyrexian Walker combo that goes "infinite" with any of your free sac outlets.

You can't do w/b tokens without Teysa, Orzhov Scion. End of story. That said, some awesome interactions with her that I had in my w/b deck in its early stages were Skeletal Vampire, Twilight Drover, and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter
