Hey, nice budget version.
You forgot Sol Ring? Ruinous Ultimatum wrecks all your opponents; leaving you untouched to attack. It's the most powerful Mardu spell currently in Commander. Mask of Memory is another way to discard Knights for Haakon or it's another way to get Haakon into your graveyard. Murderous Rider's adventure is an upgrade for a instant removal spell and then it's a Knight.
Exotic Orchard, Caves of Koilos, Battlefield Forge are budget land upgrades. Savai Triome is a Tri land Plains that Knight of the White Orchid can search for. When playing Sunforger than Mistveil Plains is worth adding because it's a way to repeatedly cast the same instant with Sunforger and it's also a Plains that Orchid can search for.

Nice build! Since gaining life is the theme, would it be a bad idea to go with Marsh Flats and/or Godless Shrine instead of the Scoured Barrens? Any ping to my total should more than be mitigated by turn 2 or 3 I should think. Just a thought.

Nice build. Budget permitting, I’d swap out the Scoured Barrens for Godless Shrine or Marsh Flats. Lands that ETB:Tapped really slow things down in my experience. If you can afford the life point pings, I’ve found most decks perform faster and more consistently.

This deck is like removal tribal. Opponents will concede after the third Angrath's Rampage and the evolution sage /deathsprout combo to ramp into Chandra and burn them away.
Also, I have a great combo deck I would like to post, but somehow, my computer doesn't let me so can you do it?
Here's the combo, and the decklist.
Combo: Cruel Celebrant, Heliod, Sun-crowned, Woe Strider, Basri's Lieutenant.
Board state: Cruel Celebrant, Heliod, Sun-crowned, and Woe Strider on board. Play Basri's Lieutenant T4. Put +1/+1 counter on Woe Strider's Goat token. Sacrifice Goat Token. Cruel Celebrant and Basri's Lieutenant will trigger. You make a 2/2 Knight token and you gain 1 life, and your opponent loses 1. Heliod triggers. Put +1/+1 counter on 2/2 Knight. Activate woe strider and sac the 2/2 knight, and get your opponent's life down to 0!
Artifact (3) 3x Witch's Oven
Planeswalker (2) 2x Elspeth, Sun's Nemesis
2x Light of Hope
Sorcery (4) 4x Basri's Solidarity

An important part of any deck is a mana base, so you can never be too wary of the cards you put there. I see you have Godless Shrine in your Maybeboard. Add that! Shocklands are great! I'd say to take out the Scoured Barrens for better taplands. Some good mana fixers/utility lands are Orzhov Basilica, Shambling Vent, Fetid Heath, Silent Clearing, or Bojuka Bog (For other reanimator decks). Fetchlands are definitely useful, so you could toss in a Marsh Flats or Terramorphic Expanse.
If your really going for that reanimator thing, Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord could be useful. Coat of Arms would also be very powerful here. It's an interesting thing you've got going on here, and I'm all for it. I can't wait to see it at its full power.

Orzhov Guildgate over Evolving Wilds? They both come in tapped Scoured Barrens over Terramorphic Expanse? They both come in tapped Orzhov Signet over Talisman of Hierarchy? One doesn't cost life both 2 drops Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth over a singular Swamp? All lands now tap for a Blk mana

I'd consider swapping a few cards for Bloodthirsty Aerialist, as you've got some life gain to support a couple. They can get big, and are evasive. Maybe switch out Shrieking Affliction and Corrupted Roots? To back that up, I'd consider tossing in some Scoured Barrens which offer the possibility of pumping the Aerialist while also offering a bit more white mana. You could mix the Aerialists with Ajani's Pridemate to have a quicker beater. Either should work in a less competitive legacy game
I feel like some removal might be very welcome in here too. Ideally things like Vindicate since you've got BW already. Versatile removal is generally the best, since some decks run few creatures. Oblivion Ring is very nasty, as is Diabolic Edict.
