Creature — Faerie
Creatures entering the battlefield or being put into the graveyard from the battlefield don't cause abilities to trigger.

Okay. So, I think you should really lean into the control/combo shell. This deck could use combos like Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, with some added redundancy in the forms of Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Marauding Blight-Priest, or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion to close out the game. In order to accomplish this, I think you should cut a ton of the creatures and really lean into board wipes, control spells, and resource denial.
You could also do cute stuff like Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity, giving yourself time to wipe the board again or go for the win with Peer into the Abyss. You should also consider taking a look at your mana base.
I'd suggest going for some fetches, checks, and shocks like:
I know I've given you a lot of suggestions. I think if you tried putting a list together with all the cards I named, plus some of the bangers from your current list and you'd have a badass deck! Don't worry about trying to do all that right now, though. See which look most appealing/are in your price range and add those first. A lot of these should be long term goals!
Don't tell Rett I gave you so many suggestions XD

Hey Alebasso, no bother at all! I only have a free account here so I can't have fancy updates showing cards in and out so I tried my best with my update section. Glad it got you to the correct answer because, yes, they aren't there because I never considered them for the deck.
I felt like Smith's etb ability is nice to get another body but growing was a bit slow, and you can't Ensoul them. My list goes to get damage in quick. If they searched for an enchantment and put the artifacts on the bottom instead of giving me a Gingerbrute and putting my enchantments on the bottom that would be nice. Plus with the addition of Hushbringer in the side running Smith is pretty bad because no etb trigger.
Patchwork was a brief thought but I played Hangarback Walker prior and felt that they are very similar and both was too slow as well. The ward ability is nice but can still be played around. Similar to Hangarback Walker where once destroyed he made at least one body, that was then shortly destroyed as well.
Not that either is a bad card I feel they don't fit with my deck. There are a few ways to build Ensoul. UR goes for more aggressive plays, UW is more artifact heavy, Jeskai is a bit of both. There may be other color combinations but I feel these are the most popular 3 and personally the best versions. I like Jeskai because you get a bit of both sides of the coin although playing it you need to figure out which side is better for what you have.
Both Ingenious Smith and Patchwork Automaton are decent cards but better in a more artifact heavy build like the UW version. I only have some of this artifact heavy aspect here but not enough to go "all in" on the specific archtype.
Hope that helped!

Thassa's Oracle and Demonic Consultation / Tainted Pact are rough Powerhouses that are specifically made to slip through Stax due to their efficient cost and are relatively easy to assemble... Sadly the speed of these can be vastly greater than ours at times.
Good options vs this sort of gameplan if it's prevalent :

If you're looking for help making cuts, the first step I would take is to look at your symmetrical stax pieces and see which ones hurt you the most:
Deafening Silence, Grafdigger's Cage, Containment Priest, Ethersworn Canonist, Hushbringer, Kataki, War's Wage, Leonin Arbiter, Rest in Peace, Sphere of Resistance, Spirit of the Labyrinth, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Trinisphere, Sanctum Prelate, Rule of Law, Thorn of Amethyst, whew I think that's all.
Of these, you want to look at the ones which most hamper what you want to do, or have negative synergies with other cards you run. You have a few cards that say "draw", so Spirit of the Labyrinth is IMO the very first cut you should make.
The next ones I'd cut could take one of two routes: so, I'm thinking of cards like Ethersworn Canonist and Sphere of Resistance. These kind of innately have negative synergy - if people are paying more for spells, they're less likely to be able to cast multiple spells in the first place, meaning the Canonist's ability is wasted. You should consider going for one type of effect or the other, not both. (I wouldn't run either symmetrically in mono-white, personally).
Council's Judgment can probably be cut - you have great enough removal without running it.
kataki definitely needs to go with how many artifacts you're running.

It has been a while indeed. Even though you're running things like Kenrith's Transformation and Song of the Dryads, I feel as if you still aren't running enough removal. A basic list of stuff you should definitely consider is:
- Swords to Plowshares
- Path to Exile
- Beast Within
- Generous Gift
- Krosan Grip
- Nature's Claim
- On Thin Ice - For this, you'd definitely need to replace all your Forests and Plains with Snow-Covered Forest and Snow-Covered Plains. However, it's worth it.
In addition, I see you running an aura strategy. I'm personally not a fan of auras, but you do you. You're also running a rather low creature count at 12. I would definitely consider trying to add more creatures, particularly things like Collector Ouphe and Hushbringer as you aren't running many artifacts with activated abilities or creatures with ETB effects. With Collector Ouphe, you can punish your opponents for ramping via mana rocks, and with Hushbringer you can protect your enchantments against effects from Acidic Slime and Reclamation Sage. Destiny Spinner is also super helpful since she herself is an enchantment and can protect against your spells getting countered.

how much do you want them to actually hate you? like do you want to be able to play the deck again? because in terms of hate, i am seeing zero copies of Armageddon.
also as a note you seem to have a number of etbs along side your Hushbringer effects. might want to be careful with those.
If you want a fun interaction with Oketra you can always include Whitemane Lion and have it return itself. you now have a repeatable "1W: create 4/4 with vigilance". With Oketra's Monument or Pearl Medallion it gets even more efficient.

Wow! Just want to say that looks like a very solid budget deck, and it looks like you put a lot of time into it, with the description, maybe board, and all. Some cards that might be a solid choice for this deck and are very budget: Lone Rider Flip, Twinblade Geist Flip, and maybe Hushbringer for the sideboard.

Welcome to Modern. Your MB looks ok, so I'll give you some SB ideas.
Auriok Champion: Good against DS and burn
Kor Firewalker: Excellent vs burn, decent vs DS
Prismatic Ending: I know you already have Path in your SB, but you might want to experiment with this. It hits all nonland permanents so there might be matchups where it's relevant for you (e.g., opp plays Ensnaring Bridge or something) since you are a 3 color deck technically
Torpor Orb: Great against MH2 elementals and soul sisters.
