Planeswalkers that you'd want to run would be the following;
Jace, Arcane Strategist : He empowers your boardstate and gives you card advantage. Also gives you a free combat wincon if you have enough power and life totals are low enough
Jaya Ballard : She gives you the mana you need to cast the spells you are going to be casting
Chandra, Torch of Defiance : Same thing
Kasmina, Enigmatic Mentor : Planeswalker protection
Nahiri, the Harbinger : Card advantage with potential wincon if you choose correctly
Narset, Parter of Veils : Oppression
Ral, Izzet Viceroy : Card advantage and wincon emblem
Teferi, Hero of Dominaria : Any self-respecting deck would run him in those colors
Teferi, Time Raveler : EDH lock
Tezzeret, Artifice Master : Immense card advantage
Venser, the Sojourner : An all-around powerful card that should honestly see more play
That's 13x Planeswalkers which should be plenty. If you'd like to add Karn Liberated you can do so but I wouldn't stretch it any further than this. You still need room for your Instants, Sorceries, Lands and Creatures. You mentioned you also want Enchantments? Well, I'd cut down on those except for the basic prisons. Notably:
I'd also focus on making it a soft Flying Tribal, to empower your tokens
All in all, this is 34 cards. If you figure you'll be running the recommended 37 lands + 8 stones, you have a total card base of 79 cards. This leaves you 20 Instant / Sorcery spells.
Given that, you may want to trim down so you have more chances to use your Commander. I'm noticing a general lack of red power in here, so you may want to actually make this an Azorius deck that happens to splash red just to get your Commander out.
Focus on replayable Instants and Sorceries, such as the ones mentioned above. Also, Charmbreaker Devils will be of great asset in this deck.
Hope that helps! :D

Land Tax would be a good addition since it will nearly guarantee you won’t miss any land drops and it will thin out your deck for you.
Maybe Selfless Spirit could also be a good add in since it will let you survive a board wipe.

I really like the commander choice! Agrus is a great character in the Ravnica book cycle ;) Also, nice build! I'm actually in the middle of brewing a Flanking tribal deck with him as commander. Not sure if it's going to be any good but we'll see!
A few cards that may help:
Heartwarming Redemption - Nice draw for Boros.
Anointed Procession - For token generation.
Now the cards I'm about to mention cost some $$ but they are certainly worth putting in if you are looking to create faster mana generation:
Extraplanar Lens + Snow Covered Lands
Mana Flare - This one is the most affordable and I put it in all my red decks.
Again, neat deck! +1

Smothering Tithe helped immensely in ramp and colour fixing.
Only issue I have with Land Tax is the land goes to your hand not on to the battlefield. It only ensures you play nice fair magic with dropping 1 land a turn when playing Orzhov.
For me personally not enough value from it as a token generator.
Elenda, the Dusk Rose is in my opinion the best token generator in a aristocrats death trigger build.
I’ll go over my suggested cuts after work.

First off, thanks a ton for the input!
Bontu is very interesting - do you find it a problem at all that the sac outlet costs mana, and especially coloured mana?
Spawning Pit should definitely make the cut, you're right.
Speaking of monuments, what do you think of Oketra's Monument ? Its reduction effect won't be as relevant but it makes a lot of tokens.
Any suggestions on what to cut?
Thanks again for your input!

Hexaflexagon: I'm a little confused, you cut Dawn of Hope which can at least generate tokens but kept in the souls sisters package whick now does even less in the deck? In commander especially, lifegain is only good when it's a means to an end. Lifegain for the sake of life gain is generally pretty bad, unless it's attached to a card that already does something else as well.
Also, just remember that while Land Tax is a good card, it's not actually ramp. Sure it helps you get your land drops, but won't accelerate you past one land per turn.

I've never before considered Odric, Lunarch Marshal and he will get added.
I'll try out Skullclamp .
I see your point on Dictate of Heliod . While it's fun, it doesn't really do much.
I'll try taking out Dreamstone Hedron for some cheaper ramp.
I like Staff of the Sun Magus , but with the cards you have suggested to me, I'll take it out.
I like Archangel of Tithes because it's an Angel and it has high Devotion, so I won't be taking that out.
I'm not sure about my LGS's current meta, so I'll be keeping Angel of Jubilation for now.
Thanks for your comment. I don't like Mind's Eye because I feel it's too expensive for what it does, and I might be able to find better ways to draw cards consistently.
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you, I'll be definitely be adding some more card draw. I already have Endless Atlas in the deck, and I'll consider Alhammarret's Archive . I like Alms Collector and Slate of Ancestry , so I'll be adding those if I can find space.
I see your point on Bontu's Monument , I'll take that out.
Thanks for your comment. My lifegain package is mainly for card draw, but I'll probably take most of it out for other cards. The only thing I would leave in would be Auriok Champion , The Soul Sisters, and Suture Priest . I'll probably also take out Dawn of Hope and Well of Lost Dreams , because they don't do much anymore.
Thanks for your comment. I agree with you and enpc, so I'll be taking out my lifegain package.
Emancipation Angel is going in.
I don't like Mind's Eye because I think it's too expensive for what it does.
I'm not a big fan of Dusk because it will kill most of my guys.

I pulled Oketra in a pack, so I may try to put this together in the future. I just wish white didn't....suck so much. The bounce creatures here help to bounce the land-tutor creatures, which will help, and also works nicely with Mentor of the Meek . I would definitely spring the extra cash for another copy of Smothering Tithe , and maybe Land Tax , too.
Great budget build to start with, thanks for sharing it!
