Hey, good start on a budget version of Tuvasa.
Some budget cards to consider adding:
- Fertile Ground : mana.
- Setessan Champion : enchantress.
- Vanishing : protection for Tuvasa and auras she has.
- Overgrowth : mana.
- Verduran Enchantress enchantress.
- Wolfwillow Haven : mana.
- Stony Silence : opponent artifact disruption.
- Shielding Plax : hexproof for Tuvasa.
- Duelist's Heritage : double strike.
- Favor of the Overbeing : flying and vigilance.
- Stubborn Denial
- Open the Vaults : reanimate all enchantments.
- Seal of Primordium
- Kenrith's Transformation
- Archon of Sun's Grace
- Destiny Spinner
Some cards to consider cutting:
- Azorius Signet
- Lightning Greaves
- Selesnya Signet
- Simic Signet
- Swiftfoot Boots
- Chromatic Lantern
- Arcane Signet
- Reclamation Sage
- Llanowar Elves
- Danitha Capashen, Paragon
- Transcendent Envoy
- Herald of the Pantheon
- Starfield Mystic
- Kestia, the Cultivator
- Sun Titan
- Creeping Renaissance
Consider more enchantments, less mana rocks and creatures? Adding more land auras as well as more enchantresses could replace mana rocks, Sol Ring is the exception. With only Sol then Stony Silence could disrupt your opponents artifacts. More advice for cuts is to streamline the creature base. Use the other creature spots to add more enchantments.
Danitha Capashen, Paragon , Herald of the Pantheon , Starfield Mystic and Transcendent Envoy could be cut for more low CMC enchantments since you have more low CMC enchantments then higher CMC ones which makes these cost reducers subpar. To replace Greaves and Boots for protection for Tuvasa instead use some auras. Vanishing can be repeatable protection for Tuvasa and all auras on her from removal even board wipes. When Tuvasa phases out all the auras she has also phase out. When she phases in at your next untap step all the auras also come back still with her.
Good luck with your deck.

Online class is in session, which just means I've got an excuse to post my suggestions now. My suggestions for lands are a doctrine I'm going to press on you; the following suggestions are just ideas that you can decline based on your taste. Overall, your list epitomizes the Commander format to me.
- LANDS MAN LANDS! You could have the best cards in every format and never play them when you need them because you're topdecking the wrong basics at the wrong time. There's budget options, not every mana base needs to be fetches and shocks. Prioritize your lands over cards that are powerful but not essential to your strategy. There are some specific lands that would be interesting in here too. I recommend prioritizing buying one or all of these cycles before buying stuff like Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth if you don't already have one. The basic land ratio can then be more specific once your lands are fixed, but that can be the last step of your construction.
Your Mardu and Commander staples: Command Tower , Savai Triome , Nomad Outpost , Exotic Orchard , Terramorphic Expanse , Evolving Wilds . I have a Forbidden Orchard that would be cool in this deck but would need to be part of a good deal (I'm strict about lands).
Your bicolored lands:
a. Pain lands: Caves of Koilos and Battlefield Forge are cheap as hell. Sulfurous Springs is the most expensive of these three but if you can get your cycle of lands for less than $15, it's still really good.
b. Filter lands: Graven Cairns , Rugged Prairie , Fetid Heath . You can get all three of these for $16 so it doesn't pass our test... but I have a Cairns for trade, bringing you to $12.50. These are good because you have some cards essential to your strategy that have double-colored-mana costs and others with multicolored costs. These are a great budget cycle, especially for your colors.
Less good bicolored lands that are require deckbuilding technique:
c. Check lands: these are fantastic if you have a good basic land ratio (why it would be important not to run both the thriving lands and the pathways at the same time as these)- Dragonskull Summit , Clifftop Retreat , Isolated Chapel
d. Pathway lands: Needleverge Pathway Flip, Brightclimb Pathway Flip, Blightstep Pathway Flip. You saw the foil full art Blightstep Pathway that was in my knight deck, you asked about the price when you said it was cool. I wouldn't necessarily go out of your way to buy these, but definitely seek them out in binders. If you're not running cards like Cultivate where you want to have some ratio of basic lands, these are strictly better than basic lands and could replace your Thriving Lands (which are a decent start; I have the nonred ones available).
- Curses, Vows, Impetuses: these could be cool, especially with the Sigarda's Aid you already own. Having these in your hand (and even better, a sigarda's aid in play) means when you say "if you attack this person instead of me, I'll reward you with ____" and bluff, or if someone attacks you you could flash in a Vow of Duty . I have most of these in the cube (as well as marchesa and the jankier cards in your deck), so you can try these out and see if you like them.
a. The other vows are Vow of Lightning , Vow of Torment , and Vow of Malice (quick trivia- there's two black vows because R&D has tried to ween off of intimidate and other mechanics like protection from [color] and likely didn't want to include it in Commander Legends).
b. More aggressive and prone to cause kamikaze-style attacks, the Impetuses are similar to the vows but definitely play very differently. Martial Impetus , Shiny Impetus , and Parasitic Impetus could even be considered removal for multiple creatures in combat if you flash them out with Sigarda's Aid.
c. Curses: Marchesa was the most popular commander for curses until Ghen, Arcanum Weaver was released. Curse of Chaos encourages the player with a shitty hand to swing in a bit. Curse of Bloodletting punishes the opponent who is too far ahead. Curse of Shallow Graves is cool at a table with Gedan's Varina, Lich Queen deck. The curses from Commander 2017- Curse of Opulence and Curse of Disturbance are the best in your deck as they also give you something when your opponent attacks them too. These are really the only curses that fit the theme and psychology of your deck by not making you a target IMO, but .
Removal: You have some "soft" enchantment synergy going on, so you might as well make it more broad. You're in the late game, you've got all your powerhouse enchantments in order and extra mana... why not cast Idyllic Tutor for whatever removal would smooth out your schemes? Darksteel Mutation shuts down commanders. Seal of Cleansing can be recurred with Hall of Heliod's Generosity . Dark Banishing is honestly a better run for your cash over Bedevil ... you're supposed to be able to convince those opponents to remove the black creature ;)
Individual cards: Gedan has a Rite of the Raging Storm you could get. Wishclaw Talisman is more on theme than Diabolic Tutor or cheaper than Infernal Tutor . This is the only deck I wanna see those and Grim Tutor in since I know what you tutor for will actually be interesting and not a combo piece. Sphere of Safety would be impenetrable and bait removal if you have the mana for it. I have a foil Keeper of the Accord somewhere but I don't know where it is. Commander's Sphere as a budget option for Chromatic Lantern , and if you build a solid budget land base the draw effect would be better (adding but lantern but not replacing would be good eventually)
Some cards I'd remove or wanted to comment on, but understand maybe stylistic or preferred: Sunforger can be a cool aikido spell tutor at instant speed. However, looking at your white instants, you have to spend 3 and then RW to save yourself with Angel's Grace . That could be a cool maneuver. I was also going to suggest dropping Akroma's Will until I saw Sunforger... that's fucking cool too, especially game changing after blockers are declared. Otherwise you're Mortify ing a creature, having your opponent talk to the Deflecting Palm , or Tear ing an enchantment in half. Batwing Brume wouldn't do anything with Sunforger. Therefore Sunforger basically has two game-changing effects and three utility effects, but I'd suggest keeping an eye on Sunforger to see how often the 3RW cost is available and worth it. The fewer cards you're dependent on, the more decentralized your strategy is, making it way harder to compete against (I'm saying this both critically and in favor of Sunforger- just keep it in mind). Torment of Hailfire wins you the game, but isn't gonna be less than $15 in the next couple years. You might not need it. Revival / Revenge can make you one of six creatures or one of three opponents an enemy- it seems like there are better cards you could play. Revel in Riches makes you a threat that your opponents need to race against, and I (genuinely) don't know if that's a position you want or if you want to maintain your monarch status. Try to think of when you want to win with this deck- by beating down your opponents individually, by beating them all at once, by spontaneously winning, or by drawing the game out for as long as possible and having the best resources throughout the game.
I haven't been able to analyze most of my own decks this intensively in a while, your design is competitive while still unique and interesting. Knowing your play style and how well it fits to this too also helps me suggest cards- it's the difference between auto-generating a deck from EDHRec and building a deck. I haven't been super inspired in the decks I've been building for myself, but this one of yours has me just as interested in the game as you now.

Cool build man, I have learned a lot and will implement into my Breya Companion deck.
Fellwar Stone over any Talisman? You will most likely have 2+ colors on, and if not, at least it will be turned on Blue.
It also alleviates stress caused by Blood Moon , gets around Silence and ...that seems to be it. But you get it right? I can see an argument for the instant spell regarding some things, but not as much of one as the activated ability does.

I’m shook. Fragmentize is overplayed? I’m the only one I know who seriously uses Fragmentize in my play circles. Fragmentize I would agreed if it wasn’t for the fact that cheap mono-white artifact-enchantment removal is so limited. If I was playing Green I would agree that Fragmentize is too niche, but if you’re playing semi-competitively without green then your best cheap answers are Disenchant, Seal of Cleansing, Revoke Existence and Fragmentize. That’s an efficient removal spell every 1 in 25 cards. Only if Wizards printed two more functional copies of Disenchant would I then start considering to axe my Fragmentize. Good removal should be cheaper than the threats you’re trying to remove with it and I’m not going to be running any Forsake the Worldly just to remove a 1-mana graveyard-hate card. Not hitting a Conjurer's Closet sucks, but there are many other cards I’d rather remove first before the Closet and all of those more pressing cards happen to be CMC four or less.

Looks like a very powerful deck. My only recommendations are as follows:
Remove: (let me know if your meta makes any of these cards better than they might usually be, btw)
Mana Tithe. This card will too often be dead in your hand, as a 1 mana tax is, at most points in the game, equivalent to nothing.
Fragmentize. Um... sorcery speed? No, thank you
Serra Ascendant. As far as I can tell, this card has very little synergy with the strategy of the deck, I know you want to be gaining life but this card doesn't care as long as you're just barely staying around your starting life total. Don't get me wrong: Serra Ascendant is busted in the format, but a more synergistic piece would be better in its place.
Phyrexian Arena. Great repeatable card draw, and works great in decks that A. don't care about a little life loss, and B. want the game to go longer anyway.
Slaughter Pact. Awesome spot removal, can get you out of sticky situation where you want to cast spells, but also hold up answers.
Dismantling Wave. Works best in our 4-player format, kind of a lot of value in one card. Nice to be able to "overload" it, too.
Teferi's Protection. Great for keeping your combos pieces safe if someone tries to wrath or something, also can just keep you from dying to direct damage and the like ;)
O-stone/Nev's Disc. Great way to be efficient with mana, you can play 'em out on a turn that you don't have any other actions on, and then crack them with the situation gets tight.
hope this helps, good luck with the deck! (also, definitely tell me if I missed any key interactions or anything like that. Thanks)

I would personally run Nethroi, Apex of Death. Nethroi has lifelink which can be fun to pump up with auras, but Nethroi's reanimate ability can be seriously powerful at enchantment reanimation if you build your deck right.
Auramancer, Griffin Dreamfinder, Monk Idealist, Restoration Specialist, Trusty Retriever, Acolyte of Affliction, Golgari Findbroker, Lurrus of the Dream-Den, Eternal Witness, Felidar Guardian. These make excellent targets to recur enchantments and auras with as you could recur 4 to 5 enchantments every time Nethroi mutates.
Do keep in mind a few card draw enchantment creatures also have 0 power making them free to reanimate too. Creatures like: Argothian Enchantress, Mesa Enchantress, Verduran Enchantress, Kor Spiritdancer.
Also if you run out of enchantments to recur I'd recommend running these enchantments as they're easy to both put into the graveyard and obtain value off of them which is what will make this strategy even stronger: Sinister Concoction, Seal of Primordium, Seal of Cleansing, Soul Snare, Weight of Conscience, Aura of Silence, Font of Fertility, Sterling Grove and Unbridled Growth. Sigil of the Nayan Gods and Cast Out also work if you only intend to cycle them.
