Creature — Human Cleric
When Heliod's Pilgrim enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an Aura card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

I have a few suggestions for clerics that may be helpful and have tried to keep them below the $1.00 mark to maintain your spirit of budget. I have tried to pick creatures that have an immediate impact or are not mana sinks so they don't compete with your commander for mana resources.
Taborax, Hope's Demise Cheap, flying, potential to grow and rewards you for sacrificing clerics.
Heliod's Pilgrim + Gift of Immortality Granted Gift is not really cheap but if the budget can handle it I think its worthwhile as it lets you get more uses out of your commander per a turn and is even better in multiplayer games.
Orah, Skyclave Hierophant This guy really is the partner your commander needs and there is no down sides to playing him.
Shadow-Rite Priest This guy is pretty solid, small buff to the tribe but a very useful black creature tutor I suggest grabbing Orah first.
Mikaeus, the Lunarch Solid beater if you have the mana or if you only add a couple of counters you can buff your army.
Moon-Blessed Cleric This is an in tribe tutor for enchantments, hard to beat that.

Nice deck : ) I always really liked Firja and this looks like a really nice build for her.
My only suggestion might be to have more permanent based removal rather than instants and sorceries. I have a Bruna, the Fading Light Meld self mill deck and I found that things like Skyclave Apparition or Cast Out and Prison Term are more effective than Swords to Plowshares because they can come back to play and pick new targets, where swords is usually a dead milled card. And something like Spectral Steel can get back something like Swift Reconfiguration which can be super annoying to your opponents. Especially with Heliod's Pilgrim or Moon-Blessed Cleric to tutor removal, play removal, and then replay them off Hall of Heliod's Generosity or a similar effect.
But you would know a lot better than me how it plays : ) Just a suggestion because I play a similar strategy and had my deck change over time to fit the mill theme.

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!

Unfortunately, we don't allow infinite comobos in my playgroup. Otherwise, I guess Siona, Captain of the Pyleas is fine as a tutor, but I dont really see any major appeal. Cards like Heliod's Pilgrim are much stronger at tutoring, and I'm not sure I would get much use out of the tokens.
Anyways, I'm always happy to receive comments and suggestions, so thanks :)

You have Heliod's Pilgrim but no auras?

You have tutor spells pretty well covered, but if you wanted to slip in another that can be abused by your commander consider Heliod's Pilgrim as it is able to tutor missing pieces of the combo.
If you do add Pilgrim you might also try Dark Privilege as a sacrifice outlet you can tutor for if you already have the other part of the combo and as a bonus it fits the cultist background flavor well.

This looks like a really awesome deck, and I do love enchantress builds. When they work, they work so well : ) This looks super synergistic as is, and the only recommendations I might have are ones I used in an enchantress deck, but it also wasn't sagas, so may not work. Just figured I'd throw a few oddballs out there : )
Setessan Champion can sometimes just be another enchantress and sometimes she can be a big, bad enchantress.
Skybind is one of those, can steal games or do not much at all cards, but I love it : ) With flash enchantments like Swift Reconfiguration or a flash enabler like Vedalken Orrery you can use it to double down on your constellation effects, or offensively to blink your opponent's creatures at instant speed. A Blightsteel Colossus is only scary if it isn't getting blinked every turn. Plus, controlling games with a set up Skybind feels like a definite win.
Cast Out is one that I'm keen on, just because of the versatility. Hitting anything at instant speed is great, but also being able to cycle it makes it always do exactly what you need in a game. I like Prison Term, I play Skyclave Apparition but I always use Cast Out : ) And my favorite is to have something like Moon-Blessed Cleric or Heliod's Pilgrim that can tutor out enchantments like Prison Term to deal with threats when you really need them.
But it looks awesome to me! The proliferate and saga synergy seems really strong, and it would be great to have blue for Flux Channeler and things, but for this commander, this build seems really solid to me : ) Nice one!

Some considerations for your deck, first being Lifeline for turning your commander into an exile and life gain machine and Ayli exile limits your opponents benefit greatly. Second is Gift of Immortality with Heliod's Pilgrim and or Moon-Blessed Cleric to search it up while being in tribe. Gift essentially gives you a free creature for Ayli to use once on every players turn, and it makes Sun Titan usable for sacrifice costs an unlimited times a turn, like perhaps with Ashnod's Altar.
