Really the only differences between Knight of the White Orchid or a plains cycler is that this isn't a creature, and (specifically for the knight) the land isn't put onto the battlefield until your opponent's turn (assuming you've already played one for turn). Plains cyclers don't exactly ramp you either. Again though, you seem to put a lot of emphasis on there being a lot of creatures in your deck, so that's probably why you don't want to make a switch. You probably also don't want to take out Expedition Map because it can get you any land you want.

Hey, good upgrades so far of the precon on a budget. Nice upgrades of Guardian, Peregrine, Lavinia, Jailer, Dignitary, Reflector, Swords, Counterspell.
Brago + Strionic Resonator + Sol Ring is infinite blink by copying the combat damage to player trigger of Brago. Another budget combo is Brago + Archaeomancer + Walk the Aeons for infinite turns by repeatedly recurring Aeons with Archaeomancer. Aeons is reprinted in the newest set Time Spiral Remastered thus I expect it will fall in price a week after when the set is released, it's already down to $5 at TCGPlayer.
You can take real advantage of Brago's ability to blink some budget enchantments.
- Reality Acid : repeatable opponent permanent sac.
- Omen of the Sea : repeatable scry and draw.
- Act of Authority : repeatable exile artifact or enchantment.
Some other budget cards to consider adding:
- Tribute Mage : can tutor for Strionic Resonator .
- Watcher for Tomorrow
- Knight of the White Orchid
- Solemn Simulacrum
- Prairie Stream
- Port Town
- Skycloud Expanse
- Irrigated Farmland
- Glacial Floodplain
If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Mono white is fine as is. There's plenty of ramp in mono white, it's probably the second best color at fetching lands out of your library with cards like Knight of the White Orchid , Boreas Charger , Keeper of the Accord and such. Oh and Smothering Tithe of course.
Card advantage comes in less obvious ways, but there's plenty to be found. From flickering Thraben Inspector to fetching lands out of your deck with Land Tax , Gift of Estates or Tithe , to using small creatures with Mentor of the Meek , Bygone Bishop , Ranger of Eos and Recruiter of the Guard , to recurring creatures and/or small permanents with Sun Titan , Resurrection , Bruna, the Fading Light , to equipment with Sram, Senior Edificer and Puresteel Paladin . And don't forget that Wrath of God is also card advantage if you use it well. There's also more obscure stuff, like using lifegain + Dawn of Hope , or Martyr's Cry on your own board of tokens, or Armistice , Pursuit of Knowledge , Inheritance for slightly overpriced sources of repeatable carddraw.
There will always be a slight imbalance in the colors, there will always be one that needs to work a little harder than the others for the same results. There's plenty of colorless cards to support any deck and make it playable nowadays, and I personally wouldn't like it much if white would be homogenised with the other colors to stop the masses from complaining. We have been doing so for years, it's pretty much a meme at this point. I know people who complain about it without ever having tried to play a mono white deck. Wizards could colorshift all the good green carddraw cards to white the upcoming year and that probably wouldn't fix it, and make the game a lot less varied and interesting in the process.
I embrace the adversity and challenges that come with mono white commander deckbuilding.
Your mileage may vary.

Feat of Resistance is solely for protection with a little bit of counters? Basri's Solidarity would be something to think about. Thalia, Heretic Cathar can go to the sideboard. Knight of the White Orchid is faster than Hanweir Militia Captain Flip. What you can do is cut down some lands, maybe 20-22 so you can have 2 of the captain and 4 of the Knight. Idyllic Grange is also something you can add.

In Red, you only have rituals which may not be what you're looking for.
And, Honestly, Endless Horizons seems good until you use it and someone disenchants it or bounces it and your lands are gone!
