For each player, you choose from among the permanents that player controls an artifact, a creature, an enchantment, and a planeswalker. Then each player sacrifices all other nonland permanents they control.

Thank you for the suggestions, a couple of the ones you made were in the orginal build but decided against them for one reason or another. Like Skullclamp isn't in the deck because i dont like adding it to decks that i cant abuse it with (like i can in my Chatterfang, Squirrel General deck), as im trying to avoid Balan from dying as much i dont think i could get the full value from the card. Which is why i adding cards like Sword of Fire and Ice, Mask of Memory and Endless Atlas as they would be more reliable forms of draw.
I put Divine Reckoning in the deck over Tragic Arrogance because i wanted to advoid losing all my equipment and having to rebuild again, plus the added bonus of it being reuseable. But i agree with you that Divine Reckoning might not be good enough so i thought that Promise of Loyalty might be a better fit as it gets around indestructible with the sac effect like Tragic Arrogance does but also means i get to keep my equipment and protects me from the creatures that survive.
Steelshaper's Gift was going to be in the deck orginally but i switched it with Enlightened Tutor instead as it gave me more flexibility with being able to search up any artifact or enchantment instead of just equipment. But i do think the deck could do with more tutor effects so i think im going to take your suggestion and add Relic Seeker to the deck and remove Kemba, Kha Regent, like you i feel she doesnt pull her weight like she used to.
I also agree with you on Finale of Glory not fitting the deck and even though it pains me to say it that Caged Sun might be to slow for the deck. So im going to take your advice and add Surestrike Trident and Ironsoul Enforcer as they're both interesting cards that i think could fit the deck nicely and i'd love to see how they do.

For decent salt but fun game I'd focus run some staxy type card.
Archfiend of Depravity weep tokens decks
Sepulchral Primordial steal 3 creature at once
Molten Primordial steal 3 creatures
Tymaret, Chosen from Deathgrave hate that works well with commander to limit the randomness
Altar of Dementia free sac plus many more upsides
Syr Konrad, the Grim with cards entering and leaving graves a decent wincon
Hofri Ghostforge double use etbs with other upside
Sire Of Insanity especially in a low budget slowing down the game works well in your favor. Also a blue players nightmare
Burnished Hart ramp
Tragic Arrogance you choose kinda boardwipe
Command the Dreadhorde Greatness at any cost
Victimize 1 bad guy fir 2 good guys. Seems legit
Painful Truths draw 3
Skullclamp for all the dorks out there. Let's make them useful
Helm of Possession trade your borrowed creature for a newer model
Smothering Tithe do you pay the tax?
Leonin Arbiter did you pay that tax
Wayfarer's Bauble ramp
Ruthless Technomancer ramp reanimation
Hoarding Ogre budget ramp
Fracture flexible removal
Stinging Study good with commander
Archon of Emeria 1 spell per turn
Rule of Law 1 spell per turn
Any of the Fleshbag Marauder effects
Visions of Ruin ramp kinda but mostly removal
Thrilling Discovery card draw
Echo Chamber fun card
Spreading Plague neat includes not great
Grave Betrayal steal creatures
These are just a few ideas. You'll have to mess with it from there.

It's not really cheap, but I suspect Mystical Tutor would be pretty good in a deck that cares about instants and can recycle the effect for U each time. If you can get a spell like Brainstorm Kicked, you can use Long-Term Plans, it's not as good at finding Instants as Mystical, but it can find literally anything in your deck for 3 mana.
A nice way to protect Chun-Li and get instants into the bin might be Stronghold Machinist, or even the super-specialized Diplomatic Escort, which can also counter abilities fwiw. You might want a Homeward Path at some point (I suspect you struggle if someone can permanently steal Chun-Li?), but it's really $$$ still, I'm sure they'll reprint it someday!

There is an odd white Enchantment called Noble Purpose, which gives all your creatures Not-Lifelink, which stacks with Lifelink. There is also Axis of Mortality, which you can use to give your strongest opponent the lowest life total, possibly weakening them enough so that you can finish them off. There is also Martyr's Bond, which works with any sort of sacrifice effects, including fetch lands that synergize well with Sun Titan. Very good with Matyr's Bond is World Queller, which will trigger Bond to double up the effect. I like it's ability to hit permanent types that you might not even have, but hitting a type that you have but don't care about is also nice, very useful vs Voltron decks with very few creatures. Finally, I like Dawnbreak Reclaimer in a deck that cares about creatures and wants a big flyer. These are all fairly high MV, so keep that in mind, but Dawnbreak can be very politically useful, especially if you play vs non-budget decks.
Fireshrieker might be good for Liesa, Double Strike is really good on her, if you can giver her +1 power for one swing she's a 2 hit kill with just Double Strike, and she's already got flying.
I would look at Tragic Arrogance over Kaya's Wrath, I always found that incredibly hard to cast, though I was Esper. Arrogance is a much bigger effect that is much harder on your opponents. There is also Promise of Loyalty if you are only worried about creatures, it not only gets rid of most, it prevents the survivors from coming after you.

I started edh in mono white forged in stone intro deck so I'm a big fan of balan. I have one I'm going to compare to this one a little later too see if there are any things I'd like to add. However. No Skullclamp ?? This is a tragedy. Seriously though I'm surprised you don't have it in your list. Overall:
Looks reasonable but kinda slow. Maybe a tad short on lands? A few easy swaps/upgrade if you can get the cards. A few cards I think underperform I pointed out below. Vultron ftw.
Steelshaper's Gift 1 drop open the armory. I'd run both.
Relic Seeker equipment tutor
15 equipment might be on the low side. Maybe shoot for 20 by running some less impactful but still great equipment that can make dorks into threats
Finally of glory is kinda meh here. Your goal is Voltron. If you had more token support sure. But your only other token support is Kimba who I've never seen do good in years. You would be better with a alternative wincons like Felidar Sovereign or janky equipmentlike Surestrike Trident to hit face if you were going to stray a tad from the vultron idea.
Caged Sun is fun. But hard to cast here. T6 you play it hope it lasts and then maybe your ok. You can maybe find a few cards to reanimate it and that would make it more valuable but not great. I find when I play vultron you want to be killing someone around turn 5 to 7 to not get overwhelmed by valuey decks like simic and combo.
Ironsoul Enforcer interesting new card I've been trying to force into my deck. No luck yet. Maybe you'd like to try it.

Cute deck, I love my Orzhov clerics deck and you gave me a couple ideas to add to that deck, so thank you for that! One thing I noticed was you really could use some board wipes in here, especially since you’re running reanimation who cares if your clerics are dying? You never know when your opponents’ boards are going to be scarier than what you have going on. Tragic Arrogance would be a good one for ya. Even just keeping Ondu Inversion Flip in reserve just in case would serve this deck.
While not a cleric, Athreos, God of Passage is perfect to keep your clerics going. That’s the god my clerics pray to. Also another one that is use perfect to go with your commander is. Teysa Karlov. While admittedly harder to bend into the cleric theme than a god, just imagine getting two creatures back every time a creature you controls dies.
Go forth and spread the word…

I like the deck, but I have a few thoughts. You seem to be really light on ramp, card draw, and removal. The ramp is really only an issue since you’re running so few lands compared to a high CMC. War Room is a simple way to through in card draw in a mono colored deck. Darksteel Mutation is premium removal for problematic commanders. Tragic Arrogance is a wonderful boradwipe, keep your best stuff and your opponents’worst.
