Colossal Majesty Discussion

You've got Avacyn's Pilgrim, which is good fixing and ramp, and Sol Ring, so that's a good start. Some more good 1-2 mana ramp would speed you up: Selesnya Signet, Wild Growth, Fertile Ground, etc.
Secondly, more lands. I steer clear of lands that ETB tapped, and I never slot in less than 36 lands. Oracle of Mul Daya would be pure fire if you increased your land count. Maybe even as high as 38+.
If you replace the tap lands with basics and Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse, you open up a couple possibilities: 1) Land Tax, 2) Karametra + Whitemane Lion/Kor Skyfisher combo, and 3) Ramunap Excavator + Wayward Swordtooth fetchland loop (also works with Oracle).
Lastly, take a hard look at your card draw. I didn't look real hard, but I didn't notice much. Rishkar's Expertise, Soul's Majesty, Huatli, Radiant Champion, maybe Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury since she's also more ramp.... Beast Whisperer, Colossal Majesty, and Drumhunter all have a similar vibe to Elemental Bond.
Best of luck!

I dont see any equipment in your list? Yes, some of these suggestions are not budget but I figured you should be aware of them should you wish to make some upgrades for the future.
Predator, Flagship - Too expensive
Emerald Medallion - You have lots of 1 drops which wont benefit from it. Its an ok card, but rarely used in green decks for good reason
Burgeoning - Not enough lands to abuse IMO
Prodigious Growth - Enchantments are 2 for 1. Either they kill it in response to enchanting, or they kill it down the line. If you REALLY want an enchantment, then add Bear Umbra. Even though they can kill in response, it at least has armor so that if it does get enchanted and they try to remove it, you are good for 1 time. Untapping lands is always nice
Colossal Majesty - Replace with any of the card draw I mentioned
Clip Wings - Unless you have lots of flying in the meta, cut. Very weak.
Jungle Basin - Just bad
Desert Twister - Too expensive. If you need permanent removal, add song of the dryads. Although its $, its cheaper and can mess with commanders. I also dont want to make you feel you NEED to change a lot of your deck, so twister can stay if you wish. Removal is always nice, and needed in green.
Tranquility - Limited
Whirlwind - Limited
Journey of Discovery - Better ramp out there
Overrun - Worse version of overwhelming stampede, redundancy is not needed IMO
Gaea's Bounty - Better ramp out there
Rude Awakening/sylvan awakening is really fun with cradle (out of budget but you have psedu cradle). With rude awakening, you can make all your lands creatures and use psuedo cradle for mana.
I wont comment on the creatures yet as most are fine and want to hear your thoughts on this first

This deck is obviously over $50 these days, but I still consider it budget. After this most recent update (adding in Bounty of the Luxa, Rebuild, and Return to Nature to replace Colossal Majesty, Naturalize and a basic island), I think the deck is pretty much finished. I'm pretty proud of what I've been able to do with it.

You're welcome! This back and forth is the thing I really enjoy about TappedOut (Gods know it looks like something from 10 years ago otherwise ;) )
I mostly play my UW spirits deck in Pioneer these days, it's just so much stronger. The Rienne deck is there to make sure I keep representing the Angel tribe. I had Mayael the Anima as a commander earlier, and honestly she's probably better, but a tribal angels deck should have an angel as a commander.
Elemental Bond is better than Colossal Majesty if an only if you can reliably produce tokens, which doesn't look to be what you're really trying to do most turns. However, I think playing 3 copies of what is strictly a "do nothing enchantment" is probably too much, I'd cut that down to 2 and play an Archangel of Tithes.
Don't get me wrong about Shalai. She's great, I'm just saying that 3 may be on the heavy side. But if you have the spots for it, go ahead and keep it! The mana sink shouldn't come up too often, though. If you get to 6 mana and are neither in a position to win or to play something better from your hand, it's a weird game.
I'm much higher on Banishing Light than Stasis Snare. Being able to take out anything is crucial and the WW cost is a liability in a 2 color deck. If you felt like cutting the green as well and going full devotion, it might be better, but the instant speed thing does very little for you as you'll basically tap out every turn anyway, so you don't get the flexibility instants usually gives you.
Regarding investing in Heliod... I dunno, I'd wait at least until after the PT's this weekend, if he dominates, he's in line for a ban and then you've thrown 45€ down the drain.

Thanks for another comment on this deck. I will try and remember to post on your Pioneer Angels deck, just as a token of my appreciation for how much you've helped me with this deck. I also see that you have a Rienne deck (although mine has more multicoloured synergies), great minds think alike ;).
For your card draw suggestions, I think that Keeper of Fables or Colossal Majesty are my best options because Keeper of Fables can draw me lots of cards when I'm in a good situation, and Colossal Majesty can help me when I'm in a worse position, perhaps leaving my guys back to block.
I didn't like Bishop of Wings in my old deck because I felt that he was either a win-more card or did nothing. I am going to try out Gisela, the Broken Blade, but my only concern is Wizard's Lightning, as most of the aggro decks at my LGS have a lot of Wizards, so I'll have to try and figure out how to deal with that. Bruna is definitely in the conversation, but my curve is probably a little bit too high already, so I'll have to figure that out.
I really like Heroic Intervention and Unbreakable Formation, so I'll have to test both. I'm not a big fan of Selfless Spirit because people can just kill it and I'd rather be playing big Angels anyway.
I like Shalai, Voice of Plenty due to her hexproof giving ability (as it stops burn spells and kills spells) and mana sink ability (in case I have nothing to do). You're probably right about Thalia, Heretic Cathar, so I'll take out a Thalia and some other things for some Gisela.
I think that the Heliod, Sun-Crowned investment is worth it, he'll probably add so much to the deck, so I'll cut Nylea for him.
Also, now that I think about it, what are your thoughts on Stasis Snare versus Banishing Light? I think I agree with you now about taking out Cast Out I've rarely flashed it in and only cycled it a few times.
Finally, what are your thoughts on the changes that I've listed below?
Thanks again, your suggestions have really helped both of my Pioneer decks,

I really don't like Nylea and Ripjaw for the card draw. Have you considered The First Iroan Games? For more comandery-options I still like better you could try Colossal Majesty, Elemental Bond, Dawn of Hope, Keeper of Fables, or Return of the Wildspeaker?
For shoring up the Aggro matchup, maybe go with Bishop of Wings? It's a great blocker and the lifegain can get pretty crazy if you get your Resplendent Angels going. Gisela, the Broken Blade is a pretty great card too, I really like her in Pioneer where there are so few bolts in sight ;) You can also play a single copy of Bruna, the Fading Light for maximum spice!

Ok so as for as creature go you are looking good, I would definitely consider adding both Managorger Hydra and Steelbane Hydra, As Managorger Hydra is a good early game creature that can get big quick in multiplayer and Steelbane Hydra gives you great removal. The only other thing I can see is a lack of card draw, I would consider adding Colossal Majesty and/or Elemental Bond. Return of the Wildspeaker could be another great way to refill your hand. Other that that the deck looks good

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:
Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.
Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route
Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,
Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.
Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.
Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty
