Destroy all creatures. You gain 1 life for each creature destroyed this way.

Hey, that's alright!
There's absolutely nothing wrong with playing budget, despite what WotC and some elitist players would have you think. Besides, a 40-50$ deck is still very much going to perform well.
This is honestly a pretty good list, by the way. If I were you I'd just take what you have and play with it against other people's decks. Depending on your local meta/what your friends like to play, then just change it up a little bit.
Props, by the way, for including Blessed Sanctuary plus Legion's Initiative. I don't remember if I suggested either of these, but that's actually a really clever way to make a bunch of tokens when you lose yours.
If I were you, I'd just take out Fumigate and that's all. Other than that, let me know if there's any specific suggestions you need!

Some Ideas for you
3 months ago
Aegis Angel is a good card, don't get me wrong, but currently given the low number of Angels in the deck as a whole and with no Angel tribal, it might be worth looking into Avacyn, Angel of Hope or, some more budget options, Indestructibility, Gift of Immortality, Kindred Boon, Shielded by Faith, Spirit Bonds, or Timely Ward. All of these grant a single creature indestructible for a lower cost, albeit they are not attached to a big flier.
Nothing for Ajani's Pridemate. It's just a good card. If you're interested in other similar cards, Light of Promise, Archangel of Thune, Gideon's Company, Cleric Class, Heliod, Sun-Crowned, Cradle of Vitality, Celestial Unicorn, and Nykthos Paragon are some good ones.
Archetype of Courage seems a bit weak to me personally. Enchantment creature cards with the same mana value that are white and better for your deck (at least from my POV) include Eidolon of Countless Battles and Heliod, Sun-Crowned.
Banisher Priest is good.
Captain of the Watch and Cataclysmic Gearhulk are both good cards, though the latter doesn't seem to work too awfully well with your deck. I would consider putting in another destroy boardwipe such as Wrath of God or Fumigate.
Chardalyn Dragon is pretty bad, even for an artifact flier. Other fliers with the same mana value include Adarkar Valkyrie, Admonition Angel, Ancestor Dragon, Angelic Skirmisher, Archon of Coronation, Aven Brigadier, Empyrial Storm, et cetera... white is ton of amazing fliers! Put 'em to good use! XD If you specifically want an artifact creature to replace it, Wurmcoil Engine is a good one.
Glint-Sleeve Artisan is interesting, and I see how it plays into a bit of your artifact synergies, but if you want that, just use an artifact creature like Adaptive Automaton, Cloudsteel Kirin, or Etched Champion.
Heliod's Pilgrim has a good effect and it's flavorful, just keep in mind you only have two Auras in the deck.
Kozilek's Channeler is a decent card, but given you like small creatures I'm not sure that paying extra for a big body is a great benefit. Worn Powerstone, Thran Dynamo, Arcane Signet, and if you want to splurge Pearl Medallion are all good ramp in white.
Lagonna-Band Elder can be replaced by one of the cards I told you about in my previous comment.
From there, all your cards are great until Soulmender, which again can be replaced by one of the cards in my previous comment, or even Fountain of Renewal. Same with Stone Haven Medic and Sungrace Pegasus.
Welcoming Vampire is good too.
Feat of Resistance is nice.
Gods Willing is good.
Aligned Hedron Network is good.
Font of Vigor - see previous comment
Sunlance - any other removal that I've mentioned
Also consider Sphere of Safety.
I hope all this helps! ^^" it took a bit to write up but I think it'll help introduce you to some staples and ways about thinking about deckbuilding and power level. I sent you a friend request so that we can keep in touch and so that I can see and help you with your future decks!

Serra Ascendant because EDH is broken sometimes, plus he can stabilize your life total and falls into your life gain sub theme.
Swords to Plowshares just some efficient removal.
Ghostly Prison to run with all of your enchantments!
Wrath of God because you're running so few creatures, it can be good to run a few wipes
Phyrexian Rebirth same same
Day of Judgment same same same

Thank you so much! I may be stuck in the past in certain ways because there was a stretch of years when I rarely played, so some of these are fairly new to me. Vindicate is a classic of course, but I forget that it exists. Attrition is awesome, but anything more than $10 is like ... something I don't want to buy impulsively, but I'll definitely add it to my wish list (would be perfect in my Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver deck too).
I think I might have a spare Fumigate in my binder. I'll have to check next time I sit down to tinker with my decks. Because yeah, even though this isn't really a lifegain deck, it would still potentially put me ahead and be a great advantage gaining all that life! Mythos of Snapdax - I need this!
