Doomskar might just be top 3 in mono-white board wipes. Three mana to wipe the board is crazy strong. I still think the modality of Austere Command and Cleansing Nova put those two over the top, but I'd gladly play Doomskar over just about any of the 4+ cmc mono-white wraths.

Peligrad I think it's important to count up just how many cards Court of Grace will draw you over the course of a game... let's imagine you get the Court by T4. Good start, not impossible by any means. Let's also say we choose to cast it over Solemn Simulacrum, Smothering Tithe, or Alms Collector--or even a three-drop like Burnished Hart, or Generous Gift. All that said, let's go with that we cast CoG on T4. We draw one card off it. Move to T5, people have likely stopped ramping (in a typical EDH game) and are now building value engines: such as Thassa, Deep-Dwelling and Mulldrifter. You are now drawing 1 (maybe) card to that players' 2, and you have a target on your back because of your flyers. T6, what's that? Austere Command, Bane of Progress, Cleansing Nova, Tranquility, Child of Alara, or Nevinyrral's Disk? Darn!

Cool take on the deck, I think you're going with a light cat subtheme? But I see some issues with the list: Elbrus, the Binding Blade Flip's color identity is black, so it doesn't follow normal commander rules; Emeria Shepherd seems to be a bit too expensive to run with 35 lands; I'd suggest putting in Auriok Steelshaper, seing as you run several creatures that want to be equipped; you might want to include artifact and enchantment wipes, even though it'd seem counterproductive to do so in a deck like this- cards like Austere Command and Cleansing Nova. Happy tapping! :p

you need more interactions. and draw. Beast Whisperer, Phyrexian Rebirth, Smothering Tithe, Rhystic Study, Simic Ascendancy, Phyrexian Arena, Empowered Autogenerator, Cleansing Nova, Krosan Grip, Evolution Sage, Forgotten Ancient, Kodama's Reach, and Farseek, Herald of Secret Streams, and Fathom Mage need to go in. maybe Rampant Growth. maybe Pyramid of the Pantheon or Chromatic Orrery this speeds and mana fixes you. draws you cards, helps speed the game up for you. gives you some artifact and enchantment destruction. because you will need it. add in Peregrine Drake and Temur Sabertooth for infinite colored mana? take out Tezzeret's Gambit, Chord of Calling, Howl from Beyond.

So other than the Giants themselves, the last two areas to look at are removal and utility. Depending on how much Brion tech you want to include, you are probably going to have to skimp on one of these two areas.
Removal is tricky in EDH. You don't want too little or too much. You're running White, so you can destroy anything you want--which is nice.
I would recommend two or three board wipes minimum and at least and five or six cards that can take care of artifacts and enchantments. Creature removal is great for aggro decks but the Threaten cards can take care of that for the most part.
One tactic you can do is sandbag your big creatures and wait for your opponents to commit to the board, then wrath and start playing your giants. If you like the sound of that, run five wraths or something like that. It's only a few more mana to kill EVERY creature.
I know you have some Wear / Tears. I'd add one for sure.
I have a bunch of Crush Contrabands, which are great. I'd highly recommend it.
Generous Gift is stellar. I don't have any but it's getting reprinted soon and may be cheap.
I have a Pyrohemia on hand. Might be interesting with all your huge giants. Maybe not though.
Titan's Revenge is giant-tribal-y. From Morningtide, and should be somewhat reliable for winning the Clash. More gimmicky than good though.
Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are the gold standards for creature removal though. No reason to not run them if you have them. Regrettable, I have none for trade. Path just got reprinted though for what it's worth. I have a boatload of all the budget replacements for them, like Oust, Condemn, Oblation, etc.
Something like Comet Storm might be an interesting include. It can function as removal or win the game outright out of nowhere. I have none on hand but it keeps getting reprinted.
There are tons and tons of removal cards out there.
I would cut Crush Underfoot unless you're married to the flavor. It's pretty bad. Any removal not already mentioned here I would cut. It's all pretty weak and you're gonna need the slots.

Hey there! As asked for on my page, I will most certainly do my best to give you as many suggestions as I can, though aristocrats is, again, not exactly my area of expertise. I hope this helps, and before I continue, I wish you the best of luck on your deck.
Let's start off with the lands/ramp. The lands seem pretty great choices for a budget deck, couldn't really have done it better myself, but there are a couple cards you may want to consider that you might have missed. Brightclimb Pathway Flip is probably one of the biggest ones, and it is only around 2-3 bucks. It's very valuable to have a choice like that in the game, and neither would come in tapped which is super good. Salt Flats is also a great card, and while it comes in tapped, you can always rely on it for a good source of colored mana, or simply use the colorless part of its ability. It is also less than 50 cents, making it a great include for a budget deck. Blighted Fen might also contribute to the theme, but is absolutely unnecessary unless you like its ability. Now, we get into a whole set of cards that could be interesting to think about, though whether you think you should include them or not are entirely up to you. Teysa is all about sacrificing and having sac outlets, so what if you had lands that had the option to act as creatures? This would let you tap for mana, and have the option to sac a creature if you needed it! Here are some of the better ones you may want to consider:
- Shambling Vent
- Foundry of the Consuls
- Blinkmoth Nexus
- Dread Statuary
- Frostwalk Bastion
- Mishra's Factory
- Cradle of the Accursed
Now you may not like most of those, but possibly even just having one or two of the better ones like Blinkmoth and Mishra might be pretty beneficial, as it's always good to have things to sac in the worst-case scenario. In addition to that, all of the cards above are less than a dollar if not a small bit more, meaning they could most likely work price wise. To wrap up all the land part, Crystal Vein is also something good to consider, giving you a turn extra in mana at the price of the land, as well as Field of Ruin, which is just a overall not bad card in general for harming your opponents.
Now, what about ramp? While your ramp looks pretty good, here are a couple sweet ones you may have missed: Dark Ritual!!! This guy is amazing, for one mana you can pretty much cast teysa turn 2 with another land out, or it can just give you a huge leg up in general! Certaintly worth considering. Talisman of Hierarchy is also a super cheap great card I would definitely recommend for the deck, and it will surely benefit you more than the Prismatic Lens, though having both is simply better. Commander's Sphere obviously isn't as good as arcane signet, but it is still pretty great due to the draw ability and is also definitely worth considering. Cabal Ritual is also great with teysa since you'll be sacrificing a lot. To top that all off, Knight of the White Orchid and Gift of Estates are pretty good and definitely worth looking into.
Altogether, for your mana base, there isn't anything too dire, it all looks pretty good, though there are certainly a few budget cards I mentioned there you should definitely consider. I'm now going to give some recommendations on some all-around good cards to include, and save the specifically aristocrats stuff for last. Swords to Plowshares is pretty cheap and yet an amazing staple in all decks, I would definitely consider that, especially since in your case you can play it on one of your own things to get extra triggers, while also gaining the life. Generous Gift is also an amazing removal card that I have in my best deck and it's pretty good too! Same as for swords, you even have the option to play it on yourself and get the elephant token that you can sacrifice again! Fumigate and Cleansing Nova are pretty cheap but good board wipes that I would definitely try including too, to top of all the removal. In black, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood, and Night's Whisper are pretty good for draw that you may want to think about.
Now sorry if this is a bit rushed, I am short on time, but you may want to think about some of the following cards, with graveyard recursion, tutors to graveyards, and good sac cards!
- Buried Alive
- Fleshbag Marauder
- Pitiless Plunderer
- Dictate of Erebos (not budget, but would be worth it)
- Village Rites
- Cruel Celebrant
Now before I end this, I would consider checking out EDHREC, where you can find so many suggestions for teysa based on what other people have (link to teysa on edhrec here and also checking out the combo section, as you may find many combo-y cards that could work in the deck! Anyways, sorry this was a bit rushed, I hope it is of use to you, and have a wonderful day! Happy tapping!

Cut down to 37 lands, I'd say. Probably...a Plains and a Forest?
You also need more removal. I'd recommend picking a few out of Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Generous Gift, Beast Within, Chaos Warp, Nature's Chant, Return to Nature, Force of Vigor, Return to Dust. Those are single target creature/artifact/enchantment removal, mainly. You also need a bit of mass removal. I'd suggest something like Hour of Reckoning, Dusk / Dawn, Cleansing Nova, or Austere Command.
