Karlov of the Ghost Council is an INSANE card for a deck like this when you combo it with ajani. its pricey, but kicks major ass. I'd look into cheaper dual lands like Caves of Koilos and Temple of Silence . They both work pretty well for me
Kaya's Guile and Mortify are super strong here too. perhaps consider ditching Vampire of the Dire Moon and Vizkopa Vampire for Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk since those 1 drops are easy targets for cheap removal.

BackPac thank you very much!
Unfortunately, all of those cards you mentioned are fairly unique in their ability. There won't really be a good 1:1 budget option. You could try Keeper of the Accord , but to be honest I'd just replace the spells with Gift of Estates , Stinging Study , and maybe Cradle of Vitality ? Archangel of Thune has a pretty unique ability.
Another option you have is to proxy the cards.

Hey! I'm back with some more food for thought:
I also feel like some more lifegain payoffs could be nice. You only need a few (payoffs suck without their respective enablers, ofc), but Well of Lost Dreams , Cradle of Vitality , or Serene Steward could be fun.
I love the direction the deck is going, keep it up ;)

What I'm suggesting is more of a focus on the +1/+1 counters and the slight life gain that can go along with it. Sit behind a wide army of little guys until you can slowly stack them up high. Any blink effect, like coudshift or eerie interlude can also work well, and bigger/better wraths, Austere Command , Cleansing Nova , End Hostilities , Mass Calcify , Planar Cleansing , Rout , Slash the Ranks ,
