I like how you can get to a board state where all your shit is hexproof from Archetype of Endurance or Sigarda, Heron's Grace and indestructible from Avacyn, Angel of Hope. If you switch your commander to Sigarda, Host of Herons, your stuff cant be sacrificed either! I personally think you should get some tutors like Worldly Tutor, Tooth and Nail (pretty pricy unfortunately), Altar of Bone, Brutalizer Exarch, Chord of Calling, Citanul Flute, Congregation at Dawn, Eladamri's Call, (you get the idea) so that you can tutor up avacyn and then drop your commander and GG. Anyway this takes your deck in a rather specific direction of getting a untouchable board. This would go well with some ramp and big creatures, and maybe some card draw like Shamanic Revelation and Harmonize (I don't know any white draw spells off the top of my head). That would turn your deck into this machine that gets to the op board state with those 2 creatures(3 if you add Sigarda, Host of Herons), then you drop everything you can. If you get a draw spell you can refill your hand and continue to make your board massive. Then you just add like 7 board wipes in that say "destroy all creatures" and your board is fine cuz avacyn. Anyway i would REALLY love to add ramp to this deck to get you going really fast, possibly turn 6 you get the 2-3 creature combo (in an ideal scenario). There are 3 kinds of ramp, you can go for land tutoring (Rampant Growth, Harrow, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Explosive Vegetation, Tempt with Discovery, Nissa's Renewal, Boundless Realms,), which has the advantage of thinning your deck of basics to the point where you have to cut nonbasics to have more basics to tutor for, and you draw nothing but powerful cards late game. Then there is creature ramp, with the elvish mystic and Elvish Archdruid, but the only good thing about that is it gets going very fast and is good if you run elves. Other than that it fills your deck with pretty useless cards and makes your mana base vulnerable to board wipes (imagine top decking a f***ing elvish mystic late game). Then there is a rather unused form of ramp, land buffing. This is by far the most powerful form of ramp and will allow you to get to 20-30 mana. It runs cards like the bounce lands (Selesnya Sanctuary, Karoo, Jungle Basin, Temple of the False God), Creatures that untap your lands (Voyaging Satyr, Argothian Elder, Krosan Restorer, Stone-Seeder Hierophant [who by the way, if you tutor for 10 basics off of boundless realms, you get 10 "untap Stone-Seeder Hierophant" triggers to untap any land 11 times], Ley Druid, Juniper Order Druid), AND FINALLY, cards that make your lands tap for additional mana (Wild Growth, Verdant Haven, Fertile Ground, Dawn's Reflection, Market Festival, Zendikar Resurgent). This last method is vulnerable to land destruction, board wipes, and it doesnt thin your deck. I personally run land tutoring and land buffing together. Also if you can get some instant speed removal put it in, Beast Within is great in commander, also path to exile and swords to plowshares, but those are very expensive. Also Terastodon is great. Anyway hope that helps if you decide to put some ramp in your deck, other than that I want to build a version of this deck very focused on the avacyn-arctype-sigarda combo, it seems very fun and very disgusting, it might just turn into a "make your opponent concede" machine >:D. Anyway good luck and have fun!

I don't know if it's because you want to make it budget (if that's the case, well done! 60$ is pretty good budget for a commander) but there's a LOT of cards that could be switched.
Let's start with creatures (and to switch to better alternatives) :
Now, let's continue with non-creature spells :
I'd remove Culling Mark, Epic Confrontation, Hunt the Weak, Incremental Growth, Predatory Rampage, Wild Instincts, Mutant's Prey, Curse of the Bloody Tome, Sheltered Aerie, Verdant Haven and Slip Through Space.
That makes 11 cards to add some kind of removal effects that are better than ''target creature fights another target crature'' because a Pacifism effect can screw you over.
I'd suggest some of these cards : Beast Within, Krosan Grip, Disperse, Cyclonic Rift, Garruk, Primal Hunter, Kiora's Follower (Untap your commander to double the effect!), Kiora, Master of the Depths, Boomerang, Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Garruk, Caller of Beasts, Capsize, Vapor Snag, Into the Roil, Repeal...
If you want some more suggestions, i'd be glad to help.

thanks for you suggestions.
I played the deck 3 times yesterday. And i worked not bad. But its not so easy to get the right mana in the first turns.... When you want to cast Sylvan Caryatid you need the green mana and cards like Haven of the Spirit Dragon won't help you then.
Now, the cards i will remove:

Why Verdant Haven? Why not Overgrowth if you still want to spend 3 to cast or Fertile Ground if you want the extra mana for a cost of 2 to cast. Does 12 mana really work? That seems way too low to me but I've never tried a deck like that before either

This makes you with 59 cards. A dragon that I would consider is Thunderbreak Regent, it has a low CMC to your deck and it's a real powerhouse.

It will copy all copyable values of the card it is copying. So if it enters as a copy of Verdant Haven, it enters as an Enchantment and acts exactly like an enchantment.
