Heraldic Banner is a boss card in budget Talrand, as are Hands of Binding Hidden Strings and Stolen Identity. Ciphering is amazing in Talrand, and the cards are really budget. Dig Through Time got reprinted recently I think. Ravenform is a great solution card in mono-blue, especially if you add some tutors later, as it can exile an artifact, something blue generally can't do. There is also Resculpt, which gives a 4/4 but is an instant. Either or both are worth considering. Saw It Coming and Mystic Reflection are also worth taking a look at.

Okay, while trying to change as little as possible and keeping budget low, here are some suggestions by section:

Land: You can lower the number down to a reasonable 24 to avoid flooding. I would suggest removing the Radiant Fountains, since your deck is more reliant on tokens rather than lifegain. It'll also help you lower the number of cards in your deck to 62, which will help with consistency.

Tokens: You can do without Sworn Companions and Captain's Call because you have far better token production in your deck already. I'd replace it with some cheap ramp artifacts such as Mind Stone and Heraldic Banner to get to your better token generators.

Lifegain: I think you an drop the lifegain altogether for answers such as Oblivion Ring or Swords to Plowshares

Hope this helps.

I didn't even see Dragon's Hoard when building the deck. It fits better than Heraldic Banner , so I'm gonna swap it in.

Azorius Cluestone : Instead use Heraldic Banner . You can choose black and simply pump and have any color.

I dont know if the snow lands are wroth it since only Graven Lore uses it and there are better card draw cards.

Mossfire Valley is a decent budget land and Highland Forest is tutorable. I also like Blighted Woodland , Warped Landscape and Guildless Commons this deck. Don't think you need Reliquary Tower here though.

The proliferate cards like Retreat to Kazandu, Bloom Hulk, Vorinclex, Stumpsquall Hydra, Pridemalkin and Managorger Hydra don't fit so well to Phylath in my opinion. Going wide instead of big will get you better results. All you want in this deck is card draw, interaction, a lot of land ramp and some mass-pump spells. When cutting these cards, I'd also take out Inspiring Call, Soul's Fire, Thud and Fling. Plummet doesn't strike me as good enough. Kazuul's Fury can maybe work because it doubles down as a land. Gruul Locket, Wayfarer's Bauble, Commander's Sphere and maybe even Gruul Signet and Thought Vessel can be cut for more land ramp. I would even disregard single target protection like Swiftfoot Boots. Your commander dying is sometimes even advantageous, because then you can cast it again to get another bunch of tokens, similar to how Prossh, Skyraider of Kher can play.

Here some nonland cards that I'd definitely add either way:

Beanstalk Giant , Predatory Rampage , Nature's Claim , Impact Tremors , Momentous Fall , Overrun , End-Raze Forerunners , Rampaging Baloths , Abrade , Valakut Exploration , Heraldic Banner , Farhaven Elf

I personally like Creeperhulk and Gigantomancer , because they increase creatures' base stats, so Pylath's +1/+1 counters up the target's power even more. Very easy to get a handful of 10/10 plants this way. Vitalizing Wind can also win you the game, but costs a lot of mana upfront. Wort, the Raidmother can come in handy too. If you can afford it, Greater Good does very well in this deck as card advantage engine.

Cool idea, I've never seen wolf tribal before! :-) I'm not familiar with wolf tribal, so I won't recommend specific tribal cards. But I will comment on the general deck structure:

  1. Run more lands. I recommend 35-36. Remove Reliquary Tower and maybe add Ash Barrens and Exotic Orchard as budget color fixing.

  2. I count 15 Ramp spells, but 10-12 are enough. Since you have access to green, you might prefer land ramp over artifact/creature ramp. (Lands are less likely to be destroyed and fetching lands out of the library waters down the odds to draw something more usefull.) I recommend cutting out Selesnya Keyrune ; Selesnya Cluestone ; Skyshroud Claim ; Heraldic Banner ; Elvish Mystic and Fyndhorn Elves . (Maybe keep the evles, if you use them for combat in the late game). Then add Myriad Landscape ; Kodama's Reach and Cultivate .

  3. I count only 3 card draw spells / card advantage effects. Again you should aim for 10-12, but that's though in Selesnya colors on a budget, so maybe 8ish do the trick?! Some suggestions: Garruk, Primal Hunter ; Shamanic Revelation ; Regal Force ; Beast Whisperer ; Yavimaya Elder ; Return of the Wildspeaker . None of these are super budget friendly, but thats as cheap as it gets. You can cheat a little by counting Tranquil Thicket + Secluded Steppe + New Benalia as 1.

  4. I count 6 single target removals and 3 board wipes, which generally is good. But since you play lots of creatures yourself, you don't like board wipes too much. Make it 9ish single target removals and 2 board wipes. I recommend removing Akroma's Vengeance and adding some of the following: Prey Upon ; Collector Ouphe ; Ghost Quarter ; Beast Within ; Scavenger Grounds .

  5. I like the ammount of wolf creatures (and wolf token generatores) and I like the ammount of pump spells (like Collective Blessing ) too. However if you must cut some cards to make space for more card draw/removals/lands, then better cut some pump spells rather than cutting wolf creatures.

Inspired by Heraldic Banner suggestion of Saccox, I integrated Iron Myr . It will ramp a little bit, will comply the restriction and trigger the ability of Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge .
