Cool deck!!! Looks fun!
Since the DU reprint Adarkar Wastes is budget friendly.
Also would you consider Strionic Resonator as a way to copy medomai's triggered extr turn?
Could consider Mask of Memory over rogue's gloves.
Storm Herd seems on theme,
And you are missing some of my favorite flying 3 drops in azorius: Aven Mindcensor, Brazen Borrower, Nimble Obstructionist.
And id prefer even Disenchant or Forsake the Worldly over solemn offering.
Anyway just some thoughts, cheers and have fun!!

Okay. So, I think you should really lean into the control/combo shell. This deck could use combos like Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, with some added redundancy in the forms of Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Marauding Blight-Priest, or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion to close out the game. In order to accomplish this, I think you should cut a ton of the creatures and really lean into board wipes, control spells, and resource denial.

Things like:

Arterial Flow

The Meathook Massacre

Dovin's Veto

Spell Pierce

Necropotence

Ghostly Prison

Propaganda

Revenge of Ravens

Damnation

Wrath of God

Supreme Verdict

Time Wipe

Counterspell

Mana Drain

Rhystic Study

Smothering Tithe

Sheoldred, the Apocalypse

Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Vampiric Tutor

Demonic Tutor

Search for Glory

Idyllic Tutor

Enlightened Tutor

Mystical Tutor

Cyclonic Rift

Murderous Rider

Feed the Swarm

Infernal Grasp

Fierce Guardianship

Deadly Rollick

Fateful Absence

Underworld Dreams

Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted

Windfall

Baleful Strix

Drown in the Loch

Mana Leak

Narset, Parter of Veils

Nihil Spellbomb

Arcane Signet

Azorius Signet

Orzhov Signet

Dimir Signet

Talisman of Dominance

Talisman of Progress

Esper Sentinel

Lion Sash

Swords to Plowshares

Deep Gnome Terramancer

Archivist of Oghma

Teferi's Protection

Teferi, Hero of Dominaria

Teferi, Time Raveler

Teferi, Master of Time

Dig Through Time

Drannith Magistrate

Malevolent Hermit  Flip

Aven Mindcensor

Hushbringer

Aura of Silence

Sea Gate Restoration  Flip

Negate

Sphinx's Revelation

Authority of the Consuls

On Thin Ice

Generous Gift

Ponder

Gitaxian Probe

Gadwick, the Wizened

The Magic Mirror

Echo of Eons

Narset's Reversal

Swift Reconfiguration

Land Tax

Blind Obedience

Darksteel Mutation

Grasp of Fate

Silence

Farewell

Jace, the Mind Sculptor

You could also do cute stuff like Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity, giving yourself time to wipe the board again or go for the win with Peer into the Abyss. You should also consider taking a look at your mana base.

I'd suggest going for some fetches, checks, and shocks like:

Flooded Strand

Polluted Delta

Marsh Flats

Hallowed Fountain

Glacial Fortress

Watery Grave

Drowned Catacomb

Godless Shrine

Isolated Chapel

Deserted Beach

Shattered Sanctum

Shipwreck Marsh

Command Tower

You also have way too many plains right now. Even before you get the lands I just named, you should cut 6 Plains for 4 Swamp and 2 Island.

I know I've given you a lot of suggestions. I think if you tried putting a list together with all the cards I named, plus some of the bangers from your current list and you'd have a badass deck! Don't worry about trying to do all that right now, though. See which look most appealing/are in your price range and add those first. A lot of these should be long term goals!

Don't tell Rett I gave you so many suggestions XD

Literally did this same thing for my son. Dovescape freaked out so many people we built a deck around it. Our deck is titled "Have you heard the word?" if you want to look at it (not quite as budget as your deck, around $175).

You need to mark your commander by typing CMDR after it, flanked by asterix (if i type it out here it just adds italics) (we used Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker)

Aven Mindcensor is awesome. It even stops ramp when people realize Cultivate might not even net them a single land.

Thieving Magpie and Spear of Heliod are both very useful.

ThisIsMyAccount i think Aven Mindcensor might be better than leonin. could be wrong but may be worth looking at. i know the cmc is a little more expensive, but flash it in as they crack a fetchland and make them cry...

Slayers' Stronghold is a legend in drawn out or even games. It only takes a couple hits from a 5/1 Flickerwisp or a 7/5 vigilant Kaldra Compleat

Leonin Arbiter is just too much of a non-bo. Mono-w just plays around the interaction with Stoneforge Mystic. Add to that Imperial Recruiter and arbiter is just too much messing with my own deck. I did play around with Aven Mindcensor but it didn't really seem so useful.

As far as Ghost Quarter... It's in there mostly for tron? I have been considering trading them out for man lands - maybe Mishra's Factorys. Against heavy removal it can help to just have something that can keep hitting

Even with 80 cards, it's hard to find any extra space!

(thanks for the CMPN tip ^^)

There are very few birds to be found here. Odd, because this is a tribal bird theme deck. You aren't even running Maskwood Nexus or Arcane Adaptation

So here are some birds I found that would be fun to play:

Augury Owl

Arctic Aven

Falcon Abomination

Aetherstorm Roc

Apex Hawks

Aven Brigadier !!!!!

Aven Gagglemaster

Aven Mindcensor

Aven Squire

Aven Wind Guide

Bay Falcon

Celestial Gatekeeper !

Airborne Aid !

Battle Screech !

Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle !

Steel-Plume Marshal !

Emeria Angel

Judge's Familiar

Skycat Sovereign

Cloudchaser Kestrel

Healer's Hawk

Esior, Wardwing Familiar

Skyway Robber

River Hoopoe

Donal, Herald of Wings

Whippoorwill an exile for so little the cost

Storm Crow why isn't this here?

Spire Owl cheap, but nice

Jubilant Skybonder

Sephara, Sky's Blade this hits the field by turn 4 for 1 white mana!

Ledger Shredder badass name and badass ability

Cartographer's Hawk a fun card that empties your deck of plains

Watcher of the Spheres dude

Flurry of Wings and Settle the Wreckage There is so much fun to be had

Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker_ look at this scawwwwww _ Warden of Evos Isle not needed, but nice for making 5 mana birds cost less

Empyrean Eagle lord

Kangee, Sky Warden all it takes is one 1/1 bird token to scwwwaaa

Stax, tax & boardwipes? Forcing your own weaknesses for others to enjoy is something white is great at. Not many great tutors? Aven Mindcensor, now neither do you. Bad at drawing cards? Spirit of the Labyrinth, now you are too. Overwhelming me with many spells I can't keep up with? Rule of Law. I don't have very efficient noncreature spells compared to other colors? Thalia, Guardian of Thraben now neither do you.

All these things are powerful, and giving white good carddraw so they can collect and stack these kinds of effects, will make white a lot more powerful, which is why it's a good thing that Rhystic Study isn't actually white, even though it feels like a white effect.

Yet, Mentor of the Meek, Dawn of Hope, Welcoming Vampire, Esper Sentinel, Bennie Bracks, Zoologist, Bygone Bishop, Thorough Investigation, even when you exclude colorless supplements, white is building a catalog of consistent carddraw anyway, especially if you consider Teleportation Circle has an array of targets to blink for carddraw in mono W as well: Spirited Companion, Inspiring Overseer, Priest of Ancient Lore, Thraben Inspector, Professor of Symbology, Resistance Squad, Search Party Captain and Wall of Omens.

Also strategy-specific stuff like Mesa Enchantress, Sram, Senior Edificer, Puresteel Paladin, Losheel, Clockwork Scholar. I think it's weird to say white can't draw cards, I'd say you're not trying hard enough if you're still complaining about that today. At least for Commander. In 1v1 formats, carddraw just isn't as important to win the game if it has to happen before turn 5.

Many suggestions here. Some you should absolutely get, others just worth considering.

Lands

Spectator Seating

Artifacts

Mana Crypt Talisman of Conviction Boros Signet Sunforger Worn Powerstone Coalition Relic Akroma's Memorial

Enchantments

Grasp of Fate Stranglehold Aura of Silence True Conviction

Creatures Aven Mindcensor Linvala, Keeper of Silence Drannith Magistrate Esper Sentinel Serra Ascendant Burnished Hart Solemn Simulacrum

Finally a combo in : Sun Titan + Goblin Bombardment + Gift of Immortality / Angelic Renewal = infinite damage. Maybe not your thing, but you're already running Sun Titan, and the other pieces aren't bad.
