Creature — Angel Warrior
When Resplendent Marshal enters the battlefield or dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield), you may exile another creature card from your graveyard. When you do, put a +1/+1 counter on each creature you control other than Resplendent Marshal that shares a creature type with the exiled card.

Since you mentioned you're pretty on a budget, most of these (at least according to my knowledge) are at or under a dollar.

I'd lower the curve a bit if you want the deck to be more competitive. If you want to keep Brisela in for the fun that's obviously your choice, but the chances of you getting her on the battlefield are pretty slim.
I 100% think you should move the 4 Youthful Valkyries from the maybeboard to the mainboard.
Sensei's Divining Top is not legal in modern (or legacy for that matter).
Resplendent Marshal may be worth considering, since it buffs all your angels and also gives a ton of value even if it gets removed.
Segovian Angel is obviously nothing fancy, but you don't have many proactive turn 1 plays.
Serra Avenger could be funny if you go for 3-4 Aether Vial, else probably not worth including.
Linvala is pretty garbage in the current meta but always a sideboard card to keep your eye on. Currently the only deck she's good against is Yawg.

I had opened a few Savage Swipes in booster packs and thought, there might be something to this, so then built a deck around 2 power creatures that can use swipe, remove creatures, and also get buffs before attacks. Monastery Swiftspear wasn't my first choice for the deck, but when I realized that prowess will trigger her to 2 power, then she became maybe the best target for Savage Swipe. A turn 1 swiftspear into turn 2 swipe to remove a dork, and then attack for 4, and then still have mana to use, that sometimes just sets a pace that the opponent can't catch back up from.
Also, I built a deck that uses Resplendent Marshal to put counters on flying creatures and then Oona's Blackguard to all at once dump hands. It's not the most effective deck, but when it works, it works very well : )

The +1/+1 counter theme mixed with the token theme looks good on paper but I think it's bad in practice. Although I haven't played this against people yet, doing shuffle and hand tests felt clunky and some cards wouldn't have much value when it came time to play them. So I took much of the +1/+1 counter theme out and replaced it with ramp (or cards that draw me lands) and a few threatening cards that are just cheaper but possibly better.

Phule451 Coveted Prize seems pretty good party pay off and casting either the Cloak and Dagger or the Obsidian Battle-Axe off the top would be pretty fun. I dislike the Irregular Cohort, but I might add the Mage's Attendant back in just for being half a party in a can, and my current list is waayyy to heavily leaning to clerics. So I'm also considering picking up Resplendent Marshal, Dragonscale General, God-Eternal Oketra, a Disciple of Bolas and I think a Nullpriest of Oblivion is a automatic inclusion for the deck. Ya know outside of obvious generic stuff I will want to pick up like Godless Shrine and Marsh Flats.

What's more fun than playing a lot of creatures? This looks like an awesome deck. There were some really good additions to white creature strategies in the Ixalan sets if you were looking for things.
Adanto Vanguard always feels more powerful than it looks. Sometimes this creature can just beat up your opponent, and it becomes an excellent blocker if you have lifegain somehow.
Castle Ardenvale can a lot of the time be just a better plains. It's way overcosted to activate, but every now and then it actually does something.
Benalish Marshal is a great pump effect on a big body.
Resplendent Marshal Can sometimes be better and sometimes be worse than benalish. Getting flying is really nice, but it depends on your opponent having killed some of your stuff.
Just some random things I thought of. Your deck looks great, and I love seeing some of those cards from the pre-made decks.

I know it's a retired standard deck, but I think there are some decent budget options in modern that you could upgrade the deck with (don't get me started on modern manabases though ugh).
For warriors, there are a few decent options in BW colors. Gatekeeper of Malakir is a removal option. Hero of Precinct One makes soldier tokens instead of warriors unfortunately but it could be built around in a build with more multicolored spells. Korlash, Heir to Blackblade is one of my all-time favorite black cards but would require you to build a more expensive manabase. Resplendent Marshal is an interesting lord. Solemn Recruit can get big.
For hand control, if you want discard I think it's worth swapping out Duress for 4x Inquisition of Kozilek (around $3 each). Honestly, I don't think discard is needed in this deck since it's more aggressive and less of a midrange deck.

Resplendent Marshal is not that good, I suggest replacing them with 2 more Righteous Valkyrie. Gisela, the Broken Blade is a good fighter, but adds little else. Meanwhile Archangel of Thune can put it simple, turn every single member of your army into a monster. I would also sugest to maindeck Shalai, Voice of Plenty, for you have no idea the impact that her shields can have. Also you have absolutely no means to do a thing against enchantments and planeswalkers, so cards that can exile any target can be a good idea, replacing some of the much exagerated criatur hate in your deck. Of Speaker of the Heavens add maybe one or two more, maybe even the full 4, so they can draw removal, and help you capitalize on Angel Regeneration. If you want to blink your creatures, take all of them and add Teleportation Circle
