Hey, nice version of Jared. I'm not a fan of Jared, but I can see you have put a lot of thought into your deck and you have overall very good card sense on a budget. Card draw shouldn't be a problem as long as you can keep the monarch :)

The manabase is lacking which is understandable because of the low budget. Cinder Glade and Canopy Vista are two of the better budget lands for Naya because they are two different land types, have interaction with lots of basic lands and they're Forest lands. Farseek, but also Nature's Lore, Three Visits (Commander Legends version), Skyshroud Claim and Wood Elves can all search for them and these five land ramp spells are among the best in Commander because they can ramp with a dual land. Some other good budget lands are: Battlefield Forge, Path of Ancestry and Naya Panorama.

Crop Rotation can tutor for Throne of the High City. Open the Armory can tutor for Pariah, Shield of the Oversoul or one of five equipment. Pariah is an important card to have more access too because you can't lose the monarch when Jared is enchanted with it.

Kami of False Hope is the white Spore Frog. Sun Titan is now less than $1 and is quite helpful since it can be repeatable reanimation: Jared, Pariah, Throne, Frog, Reckoner or any other 3 CMC/less permanent. Dromoka's Command is a good instant fight spell since it also gives another mode.


Cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

For recursive lands: Mystic Sanctuary (Dumb Good), Witch's Cottage, Mortuary Mire all work once, but with flickerable effects it's all fine, and you can sacrifice Buried Ruin, Petrified Field, Sequestered Stash. Hall of Heliod's Generosity/Academy Ruins are insane in the right decks, and Emeria, The Sky Ruin is busted in the late game. Mistveil Plains sort of works as recursion, and is repeatable, but is best with tutors and tutor chains. Even Unholy Grotto works amazingly in zombie decks!

(Nonbudget versions would be like Volrath's Stronghold)

Some other draw engines I didn't mention prior are Sea Gate Wreckage, Throne of the High City, Grim Backwoods, and sort of Desolate Lighthouse.

Some tutors like Tolaria West that MagicMarc mentioned would be Inventors' Fair, and Sanctum of Ugin.

Removal is plentiful on lands, but pretty specific. Blast Zone is a favorite of mine, and is dumb good. Ghost Quarter, Field of Ruin, Dust Bowl, Encroaching Wastes, Memorial to War, and Tectonic Edge all deal with lands. Arena, Barbarian Ring, Blighted Gorge, Cabal Pit, Desert, Keldon Megaliths, Keldon Necropolis, Mouth of Ronom, Rath's Edge, Grasping Dunes, Ifnir Deadlands, and Quicksand are good against creatures, and some walkers.

Considering how big the average creature here is, this seems like the perfect home for Bonders' Enclave. I'd also recommend Arch of Orazca, considering how much colorless mana you have floating around, and possibly even Throne of the High City for once you get going.

I'd also recommend Tectonic Edge over Encroaching Wastes - how often will you have four spare mana but your opponent won't have four lands? - and maybe Arcane Lighthouse as a backup version of Detection Tower.
