Trying to keep your budget in mind I have several suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category. My main advice is if an effect is available on a creature, use it over other versions (i.e. Stratus Dancer over Negate).
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not cheap overall but Animar has several good options for reasonable prices. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

I'd phrase it as a " Shrieking Drake -like combo" instead of the way plakjekaas phrased it (since my Chulane doesn't make infinite mana or run Kor Skyfisher ), but I fully agree with the point. If you are not combo winning with Thoracle, there is not really a reason to run it.

Hey, great work. I also built a Lonis deck, pretty much based on yours, but trying to avoid the elf route as much as possible, and focusing more on combo and counter. My only 2 cents that I can give you are Memory Lapse and Hidden Herbalists .
The first one is great with lonis, because you can either steal the spell your opponent casted if its a permanent, or send it to the bottom of the library if not. Win win.
And hidden herbalists goes infinite with the temur sabertooth if you have revolt, which is pretty easy to activate with lonis, or just by sacrificing a clue and then wait to tap lonis once you have infinite clues.
Finally, Urza, Lord High Artificer is a must. Gives you an infinite big construct, infinite clues and (on the next turn), infinite mana paired with a Shrieking Drake . You can then proceed to sac all your clues, draw your entire deck, and play a Thassa's Oracle
Also, Altar of the Brood is a great wincon to mill your opponents with the infinite clues generation or creature bouncing. Else, it synergizes great with "bounce to the top of the library" spells, like Expel from Orazca . Besides, it is flavorful with Lonis "serpent" and "investigation" theme.
Essence Warden can produce infinite life with the infinite bouncing as well.

I would highly recommend Shrieking Drake as it can be just U for a clue but it also combos with Aluren and intruder alarm if you have a dork that can produce blue. Also Urza, Lord High Artificer can give you a lot of mana before you sac the clues. I've been working on my own list and Lonis seems really flavorful and powerful without being oppressive.

Shrieking Drake is Chulane's best friend. Repeatable cantrip to keep you gassed up and ready to rumble at the worst, outright ridiculous ramp in addition to this at best.

The main thing I'm seeing that this deck needs some work on is lowering your non-creature spells by a LOT and adding bounce enablers. Most Animar decks run less than 20 non-creatures and instead run similar effects on their creatures.
Other random suggestions: Walking Ballista is your most mana efficient finisher with Ancestral Statue. Vizier of the Menagerie is excellent draw on a damn good card. Shrieking Drake is a fairer version of Ancestral Statue. Clones like Dack's Duplicate, Stunt Double, etc. work great with land untappers like Great Whale and the others you already run.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not budget friendly but there's still budget cards to pick through. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid
