Thought you'd appreciate the true singleton format for this one. As for why Vorinclex, well it seems like Spike and Timmy have helped you figure that out ;)
Urza's Ruinous Blast and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth : Originally these were contestants, but this started out as a Party Matters deck (Wizard, Cleric, Warrior, Rogues) but I ended up not having enough of a balance of those types to warrant focusing heavily on the mechanic.
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : The point of the deck is to not cast the legendary spells. Also, she has her own deck.
Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage : This is one that was cut after deciding I had too many Wizards when I was still looking at Party Matters. Might warrant revisiting.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow : The primary reason this isn't in the deck is I don't have it. Otherwise I dunno what I'd cut.
Anafenza, the Foremost : Similarly, don't has. Will have to source as it's glorious.
Blackblade Reforged : Too many other good options to include this, unfortunately.
Heroes' Podium : I really like this one. Didn't know it existed. Will have to source.
Farseek : No idea what to cut. Also probably didn't find it when going through cards and was giving priority to LEGENDS
Thran Temporal Gateway : I've no excuse as to why this ain't in except that I wanted to use Sisay to cheat, not anything else. Which isn't a good excuse but it is mine.
Fblthp, the Lost : Wow yeah I do need one of these.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : Wouldn't go in here anyway. She'd go into Mono-White. And I'm not gonna get my hopes up on getting more than one.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope : If I had an extra, lol. She's basically an auto-include in any white deck.
Sigarda, Host of Herons : See above.
Eerie Ultimatum : Another card that...I wish I had.
Ruinous Ultimatum : Ehh,, I feel like one ultimatum is a bit much for the deck and I'd rather Eerie.
Weatherlight : Valid point. Now, ugh gotta figure out how to fit it in.
Legacy Weapon : Bad Vorthos. Bad.
Rhystic Study : Bad Spike. Bad
Curiosity : ...bad Johnny, bad.

Another U/W option that's both budget and beginner-friendly is flyers. By including a critical mass of evasive creatures, you can soar right past blockers for the win. Some cards that synergize with such a plan include Watcher of the Spheres . Empyrean Eagle , Skycat Sovereign , Jubilant Skybonder , and Sephara, Sky's Blade . Then, you can choose to either go wide or go tall. Wide means add more token production like Midnight Haunting and Migratory Route . Tall means add more bombs like sphinx ( Azor, the Lawbringer , Isperia, Supreme Judge , Unesh, Criosphinx Sovereign , etc.) or angels ( Angelic Arbiter , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Lyra Dawnbringer , etc.). Not all of the aforementioned cards are budget but it's easy enough to find cheaper alternatives. If you're playing with a casual (legacy) card pool, EDHREC can be a useful resource for finding cards that fit within an archetype. 60-card decks generally want to be faster than their EDH counterparts, but that really depends on how competitive your meta is.

1st off, thank you for the suggestions. I always welcome them and maybe there is some card out there that I don't know existed or recently came out that is better than a old card.
I have had mother of runes in the deck before and I just felt like I could have had a better creature in hand. When I play with this deck majority of the time I don't need to protect my commander. Because, if it does get removed then I am not a threat and the other players and usually get left alone. I do have a few protection options, which are Boros Charm and Avacyn, Angel of Hope . that is usually enough. As far as Austere Command , it is already in the deck.
I don't like gamble in this deck; mainly because of this decks colors. If I was going to add search, (which I probably should do to get my protection cards or end game stuff) then I would put in black tutors. However, Sneak Attack is very interesting, considering that they will get to swing as soon as they enter and with things like Sword of Light and Shadow and Phyrexian Reclamation I could get these cards into my hand again. Zirilan I don't necessarily like because it removes them from the game.
Land control my thoughts on it: I used to have stuff similar to that. However, my play group would get hella salty when I did. They felt like there was nothing they could do unless they just countered it. (I had land destruction with Avacyn) They either didn't want to play with me or would 3v1 me. It is because of that and me thinking well when/if I did pull it off. They couldn't play magic and it would defeat the purpose. I do think it is powerful to do so and agree it is great but that the reason is solely due to my play group. This Mana Flare card: I didn't know that card existed to be honest. I will look into buying one and adding it.
Thank you Kurban for the suggestions and upvote. I appreciate it.

Just keep in mind That if you put Sword of War and Peace on your commander that all of your colored enchantments will fall off. I get it if it's your only sword of, but really it's the worst possible one for this deck. Honestly it's probably still worth running but if you can I'd go in for Sword of Feast and Famine . Also you might want to consider Darksteel Plate if you're running worldslayer, that or Avacyn, Angel of Hope so you don't lose tempo. I know i don't have much budget suggestions, but that's not a bad thing, it means that you've pretty much got all the elements you need for it to be decent and now you just need the high dollar cards to make the deck go next level. On that note Teferi's Protection for your sunforger package, as well as Unbreakable Formation . Embercleave could do some work for you and will soon see a huge price drop. Then just tutors Steelshaper's Gift and Enlightened Tutor .
Again, not trying to be negative on your build. I know essentially nothing i mentioned is affordable, but it's going to be the top end cards that you should consider to get you to the highest level. If you want i could do a deep dive for ya, just let me know

Avacyn, Angel of Hope is great protection in a legendary deck. Giving everything indestructible is kinda nice.

Haha you are a tough one. Bishop of Wings is indeed probably best in slot for an Angels deck. But in this case here i have simply not enough Angels that would justify playing it. If there is a 3 drop Angel with ETB removal, i will definitely consider it.
Divine Visitation is indeed an Angel wincon but it is not the idea i was going for. So the base idea is to play big legendary Angels like Akroma, Angel of Wrath , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Iona, Shield of Emeria , Brisela, Voice of Nightmares (These are the devotion payoffs. You can add 1x Entreat the Angels if you feel like it). There is a tutor in place Thalia's Lancers to fetch the situational needed wincons. It is a lot more fun to play with different wincons and tutor effects during game than just token spam and pray.

enpc - Avacyn, Angel of Hope puts in some work here. Yeah, she doesn't dodge the best of the best wraths but she's far from win-more in my experience. It may just be my meta but I still see a decent enough amount of traditional 'destroy' wraths and spot removal that I run a lot of anti-wrath cards in all my decks.
irish_trunks - Ty. I kinda had this built before Paradox Engine was ever a thing but the original decklist disappeared awhile ago (can't remember if I deleted it or not tbh). I avoided the Paradox combo A: because it felt cheap and I wasn't trying to combo, B: because it would've required a MAJOR overhaul, and C: I (correctly) figured Paradox Engine would end up getting banned lol.

YES that's the kind of synergy I LOVE
Brutalizer Exarch really is great, isn't it? I sometimes forget it can tuck shit because it'd be good enough with just the tutor mode.
I find it interesting your deck can pivot into a more political mode, I have a little bit of a hard time convincing people my Avacyn, Angel of Hope won't affect them.
I actually quite like the idea of play testing against your Kinnan deck, do you have it on T/O? Couldn't find it in my quick search I did. May just be my incompetence ;D
