Drop Rings of Brighthearth . Most of your abilities are triggered not activated. ("Whenever", "when", "during"). Replace it with something else that works on "triggered" effects or "enters the battlefield".

Hey, here are some changes I might recommend while still staying on a budget. Fist, for a voltron deck I would probably drop the creature count a little bit as 29 is a little high. For this build I would probably eye something around 22-25. Also your land count is very low, I would bring that up to about 36 lands with several ways to search for lands, that will allow you to have plenty of mana and cast the bigger stuff in your deck.
Next, I would cut some cards that seeming underwhelming. Those are: Auriok Edgewright Auriok Bladewarden Fireblade Charger Leonin Relic-Warder , Evra, Halcyon Witness Shimmer Myr Spikeshot Elder , Wayfarer's Bauble ill talk about this one below, Leonin Bola Neglected Heirloom Flip Berserkers' Onslaught . So yeah once you know what to cut, it becomes very easy to make a bunch of additions.
Im not sure if you are married to the $50 budget, most of my suggestions here will be about $1 a piece but here's what I would add. First as mentioned we want better mana production, so you'll want Gift of Estates and Armillary Sphere over wayfarers bauble. In 700 games of commander, I've found that armillary sphere is just better than bauble for many reasons I wont go into right now. Fervent Champion , Sun Titan Kazuul's Toll Collector , 4 basic or flip lands, Flamekin Village Blackblade Reforged . Berserkers Onslaught can be a straight switch for True Conviction . Fleetfeather Sandals . Because your mana production is getting better, you can go just a little bigger on the top end of your deck. I might put 1 or 2 bigger equipments at the top end like Argentum Armor or maybe even a Scytheclaw . I would add Dismantling Wave and a Tome of Legends .
Here's some other very good cards on a budget that I might consider Forging the Tyrite Sword to cheap tutor, Ignite the Future excellent card draw Showdown of the Skalds also great card draw. Theres a whole package of cards you can use with Goblin Welder Goblin Engineer and Daretti, Scrap Savant and if you add those I would add a Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion . Because you have Toralf I might consider a few more red based board wipes like Chain Reaction or Magmaquake but i wouldnt say no to a Fumigate or a Rout either.
Anyway that should give you plenty to think about for now. Enjoy!

I have a few specific things I have thoughts on and I was hoping someone could check my logic. Here are somethings on the "Maybe" list I need a second opinion on.
Blackblade Reforged ---> Heirloom Blade : Blackblade has a higher ceiling, giving me a potential voltron win if I need it, but I only have 6 or 7 legends in the deck including Shalai. Heirloom Blade has a low-cost investment, but late game that +3/+1 might not be enough in a pinch. Is it worth the loss of the high ceiling to save mana?
Finale of Glory ---> Secure the Wastes : Finale of Glory needs a 12 mana investment to really go off, but I think given how much ramp I have it might be possible. Would it be worth it to lose out a bunch of late game beaters in exchange for an army of 1/1's I can drop at the end of my opponent's turn?
Sigarda, Heron's Grace ---> Herald of War : Sigarda is mostly there because it is a financially safe and efficient beater. It's also there because I really like Innistrad. Would it make more sense to cut it in favor of a slightly less powerful, but overall more impactful tribal component?

As far as newer player decks go, this is far more together than I expected. It should be perfect for casual play. The tutor package that can look for removal or threats is a solid spine for the deck.
In terms of cards to consider that are cheap and still do well, I'd look at Ayula, Queen Among Bears as a removal etc option, which plays nice with changeling effects that can take advantage of samaruai synergies.
Mangara of Corondor is a feature of classic lists, loving blink effects and sacrifice to break the symetry of his effect.
Vivien's Arkbow never found its place in competitive lists, but still puts creatures from your deck on the battlefield, which plays really nice with the existing tutor package.
Blackblade Reforged points to legendary land synergies, but legendaries that put lands into play have had their price pushed up by commander and Scapeshift decks. For that price reason, I will reccomend against becoming a Kamahl's Druidic Vow ramp deck.
Bushido likes being blocked by a lot of creatures, making Lure effects strong, but samarai isn't well represented as a tribe. This means that it would need to fill out ranks with your Changeling Hero type cards.
Finally, the biggest piece of advice- cards aren't expensive because they are good, they are expensive because they are in short supply, and everyone needs lands. Making your manabase good is the place to invest money - there are cool, format warping, cards at $0.20, but to play them you need good lands. Look for lands as they rotate out of standard and pick them up - they'll be cheapest as there is a spike in supply, and after a few set rotations you'll have a solid set of cards to build from.

Really enjoyed your game on Muddstah, definitely making me reexamine Omenkeel. Do you tend to always play it on the Omenkeel side? Have you ever found a time that make Cosima a better play?
Have you considered Tideforce Elemental ? I'm a big fan in most U-based landfall decks, and here it would be able to help crew vehicles as well as clear out blockers. Also, have you tested Roil Elemental ?
Also, while I get that you play a lot of your opponent's lands, would you consider cards like Scaretiller and Terrain Generator to help get the lands you draw onto the field? Finally, any consideration of Blackblade Reforged to help close the game or nah? Thanks!

I might try Demonic Embrace too, although I don't like the idea of discarding cards. I don't suppose I'd do that too often though,
Eldrazi Monument is a good one to consider as the deck is really fragile to board wipes. I'll have a look over the deck list and see what to cut for it.

I'm also not super keen on Blackblade Reforged ; you already have: Timberwatch Elf and Wirewood Pride for the "go-tall" aspect of the deck. I would strongly consider replacing it with Eldrazi Monument ; it beefs, gives invasion to all your elves; and most importantly gives them destructive-board-wipe protection.
I also really like: Steely Resolve , it's fantastic when facing a Maze of Ith ; however, including it may require revisiting your targeting spells/abilities, as you they won't work if Steely Resolve is on the field.
