Work uniform neon yellow =
Folding clothes = bounce permanents
Plane chosen at random = EQUILOR
ON THE EDGE OF THE KNOWN
One of the oldest planes, in one of the farthest reaches of the Multiverse, Equilor is unknown to all but the most tenacious planeswalkers. Once visited by the planeswalker Urza on his journey to find allies against the Phyrexian scourge, Equilor can be described as nearing the end of its natural entropy. The plane has flattened mountains and risen seas, and the beings who live on it are self-described as being beyond any desire for greatness or any effect of boredom. The plane itself is covered in large swaths by an endless mist known as The Eon Fog, and has some areas of living flesh mountains known as Bloodhill Bastions.
GODS & AVATARS None known
SETS FEATURING EQUILOR None
The only card previewed here on this plane is a good one.

Scuttling Doom Engine was in the original iteration of this deck. It was definitely serviceable, and I'd recommend it for a budget build, but if it can be afforded, there's better stuff out there.
Evra, Halcyon Witness is AWFUL against removal and if people really think about it, it's a non-bo.All the card that rely on having a high life total are SCREWED if you use Evra: Serra Avatar, Soul of Eternity, Aetherflux Reservoir, etc. So while it looks good on first glance, it's bad.

You've taken a much different approach than my Brion deck; I love to see how variable he is. I would take Chandra's Ignition off your maybeboard and into the mainboard replacing Evra, Halcyon Witness. Evra is 6 mana to play, 4 mana to make big, then 1 mana to fling with Brion for a total of 11. That's too much for what it does. You'll never be upset with Chandra's Ignition; I think it's an auto include.
I do really love your inclusion of Angelic Renewal though. Even if it can only be used once, it's super cheap, and you get to choose what creature it happens on.

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 don't think it's a bad thing to change it to trigger on life loss. Transcendence works with Evra, Halcyon Witness . Whenever you activate her ability while having more life than she has power, you lose that life and then gain double back, effectively gaining the difference in life. You still have more life than Evra has power, so you can keep pumping up her power and your life total. Then you can finish with Chandra's Ignition . Granted that's a lot of mana.
Transcendence has the issue that it immediately kills you at 20+ life, while a modernized version with a softer drawback could be utilized in interesting fashion.
If it only triggers on damage, it is effectively a catch-all against black's life drain abilities and it means you can freely pay life to keep below the threshold - eliminating the drawback. And it is a creature, so black has plenty of ways to sacrifice it to get out of the drawback. All-in-all I don't think it needs to be easy to eliminate the drawback, because it is easy to get rid of the effect.
