Main thing I'm seeing is your ramp needs some TLC. As the previous poster stated... avoid mana rocks that cost + but only add 1 mana and drop Gilded Lotus. Lotus Petal, Azorius Signet, Boros Signet, Izzet Signet, Pentad Prism, Talisman of Conviction, Coalition Relic, Basalt Monolith, and Worn Powerstone are all better options. Also consider Generator Servant and Crystal Vein.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not budget friendly as a whole but still plenty of budget options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

I have a few suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category.
Ramp: Drop all 4x rocks that cost but only add 1 mana. Arcane Signet, Pentad Prism, Basalt Monolith, Lotus Petal, and Coalition Relic are your best budget(ish) mana rock options you don't already run. Also consider Generator Servant and Crystal Vein.
Pillow Fort: Smoke is amazing here.
Auto Haste: Dragon Breath will automatically enchant Narset every time you recast her.
PW: Ral Zarek is handy for his untap ability (Strionic Resonator is easily my favorite target) and his ult is pretty easy to hit for 2-3 extra turns.
Feel free to check out my list for more ideas, it's one of the top rated Narset lists on this site. It's not budget friendly as a whole but still plenty of options. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

What is your ultimate goal (what do you want the mana for)?
You're going to have a real hard time hitting that mana in legacy--it's not impossible--there's a lot of fast mana printed, usually in Red ( Simian Spirit Guide , Rite of Flame ), there are fast mana artifacts ( Lotus Petal , Chrome Mox , Mox Opal ), and there's Manamorphose to fix your colors--but it is generally going to take a whole lot of moving parts.
You're in colors with mediocre card draw options, meaning you're effectively banking on a perfect opening hand--that's not an effective strategy.
Finally, with all your moving parts, you still have a relatively fragile opening turn, where a single Force of Will (the third most played card in the format) can make all your work generating mana be for nothing.
Which brings me back to my opening question--what is it you are trying to do with your mana? There might be a better way to accomplish that task, such as a way to cheat that card into play or a good way to stall out until you're capable of playing the card.

The main thing you'll want to do if you decide to increase this decks competitiveness is increase the amount of ramp you have by a LOT. A turn 3-4 Narset should be the goal.
Don't go with the Thran Dynamo/Gilded Lotus you have in your maybeboard though... stick to ramp that costs or less ( is ok if it adds more than 1 mana). Lotus Petal , Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Creativity , Boros Signet , Azorius Signet , Izzet Signet , Fellwar Stone , Pentad Prism , Coalition Relic , Basalt Monolith , and Worn Powerstone are all great mana rocks here that won't break the bank. Crystal Vein and Generator Servant are excellent here also.
Smoke is really good in Narset, especially with your Superfriends subtheme.
Aqueous Form allows you to Scry before Narset's trigger so you can dig 5 cards deep while making her unblockable.
Long-Term Plans is an excellent budget tutor here to set up a Narset attack.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's dedicated extra turns/combats and is very optimized. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Narset, American Beauty

Good morning, guys. Sorry for the delayed response, between being back from deployment and Commandfest at DC, it's been a good busy holiday season. I'm currently training in Arizona, so I'll be playing EDH on the West side again.
Profet93, I can attest that Arcane Signet would be better than Coldsteel Heart , mostly for the fact that it comes out untapped. I was using the Coldsteel one because it was a snow artifact, and it was better than it's other two-drop artifact counterparts. I use Lotus Petal to put out my Commander quick, because it costs to come out. Maybe I can find a way to keep both in... I can't justify Ruby Medallion , because half the deck is colorless, which makes it somewhat pointless if I can't use it to play larger cards or abilities.
Hey, enpc, nice to see you again. I think she's a great planeswalker. I am cautious with how she adds to devotion, but I think her reusable spell ability is useful to bring out wheels again. What would you recommend to be a possible replacement for her?

White/Black does not have much in the way of getting extra land in to play. You need to capitalize on the lands you have.
Remember you are playing Aristocrats. You need at least 3 pieces on the field to make it work. A lot of mana is key to keep recuring your creatures and recasting.
I recommend Cabal Ritual as well.
I myself have opted to remove Lotus Petal from my own build.
Erebos, God of the Dead is high value card draw as well as keeping your opponents from gaining life.
If you are worried about life add Deathgreeter .
