IMO the most efficient lifegain cards are Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and Essence Warden, followed by Leonin Elder, Spectrum Sentinel, Profane Memento, The Meathook Massacre, Auriok Champion, and Lifegift. They all scale absurdly well with multiple opponents.

I would actually argue that powerful but niche cards like Veil of Summer and Aether Gust is something the format needs more of. They aren't strictly better than other counterparts, but give some "narrow" hate that can be quite powerful in the right matches. We need more hate-cards in the format which are relevant in this manner. Wedge hate cards like this are great, and it's a shame that they aren't all at the same power level.
Cards like Devout Decree, Celestial Purge, Noxious Grasp, Deathmark, Fry, and Rending Volley just aren't powerful enough. White does get some decent creatures that fit the mold like Auriok Champion and Sanctifier en-Vec but those require a little more than a slight splash.
So in conclusion, rather than argue that Veil of Summer (a fixed Autumn's Veil) is too powerful, I would argue that the counterparts from other colors are just too weak, being outclassed by normal removal options.
We need more narrow cards that fit into what the color wants to do, and hate against what its enemy colors want to do better. For example, maybe some kind of Searing Blaze type of effect (deals with creatures and goes face) for against , and a effect against that punishes them for swarming and is a form of removal.

The only substitute off the top of my head is Altar of Dementia, but that is more expensive(both cost and cmc) and does a worse job. Also Hair-Strung Koto but thats waaaay worse. I would probably play a different payoff if ur concerned about budget. Just from a quick look here's what I found:
Ajani's Welcome - infinite life W
Auriok Champion - infinite life WW
Ivy Lane Denizen - infinite power on any target creature 3G
Attended Socialite - infinite power 1G
Imo you can cut 1 of them with no significant impact to your deck, or even replace them all with Ajani's Welcome. At the end of the day, infinite creatures is infinite creatures. 95/100 times you execute the combo you wont need a finisher, and in the case that you do it isnt 100% certain you will have on. Ajani's Welcome is good enough where even if all the tokens are killed it is nearly impossible to lose the game, as the only way to kill someone with infinite life is to have infinite damage, and combo decks are rare in 60 card formats. Hope this helped :)

Knights need some love brother! LOL. I have a similar deck and spot removal and board wipes (not as common) are problematic but Mother of Runes has helped a LOT! She's less than 2 bucks and is a one drop and human-which fits. I know you're a budget builder-I am not LOL. Cavern of Souls would be a great investment, if you're willing to pony up, and will stop counter magic until they Ghost Quarter or Field of Ruin it. Still, would buy you some time. Any of the pro-red knights would be good in SB for burn. Guardian of Faith will stop board wipes or even spot removal since you get to choose your targets so you don't HAVE to phase out your whole field. That card was a game changer for me and it's a knight and cheap (also less than 2 bucks). Nice shenanigans too since he has "flash". For a 3 mana 3/2 that is white and cheap, a knight, AND flashes in to prevent removal he's pretty much the MVP of my deck (between him and Exemplar). I've read through your iterations and it feels like you landed on the right mix!! Your deck is essentially the same as mine except I do run Caverns, Mother and Guardian and a few more fetches to thin the deck. Nephalia Academy is SUPER CHEAP and, while it does not take the place of Leyline of Sanctity it does deal with discard strategies and used to sit in my SB but I run a couple copies main now. I have run this deck with Aether Vial but it just gets too "muddy" on early drops and invariably almost every competitive deck runs Stony Silence in SB so that makes vials pretty useless. Auriok Champion is a great (human) SB card and so is Sanctifier en-Vec especially with dredge decks. Paladin en-Vec is another good choice and kills Rakdos strategies. A lot of people will say that Knights isn't competitive in the current modern meta but I have a pretty competitive location where they get roughly 50 participants every Friday night for FNM and my knights never go worse than 2-2. I've had a few 4-0 nights and a lot of 3-1 finishes. I don't always play knights but when I do it's competitive enough to feel good.

Welcome to Modern. Your MB looks ok, so I'll give you some SB ideas.
Auriok Champion: Good against DS and burn
Kor Firewalker: Excellent vs burn, decent vs DS
Prismatic Ending: I know you already have Path in your SB, but you might want to experiment with this. It hits all nonland permanents so there might be matchups where it's relevant for you (e.g., opp plays Ensnaring Bridge or something) since you are a 3 color deck technically
Torpor Orb: Great against MH2 elementals and soul sisters.
