Straight Mono White Control (No Creatures)

Cz's White guide highlights an excellent control deck that I would love to build something very similar to. unfortunately, even without cards like Land Tax and fancy tutors, it is still out of my budget. How could I make a deck similar to it without budget breaks like Wrath of God and Humility which seem like essentials. This deck would be for small multiplayer games (3-4 players) Could Phyrexian Rebirth work here? Frankly Mind's Eye is a little steep too but maybe I can afford one. Here's the deck:










  

Deck  
26x Plains
Spells (34)
3x Luminarch Ascension
3x Sun Droplet
4x Ghostly prison
3x Goblin Charbelcher
1x White Sun's Zenith
3x Endless Horizons
4x Day of Judgment
3x Wrath of God
3x Humility
2x Leyline of Sanctity
2x Norn's Annex
2x Mind's Eye


So yeah, what are some other options for this deck? I also must ask, on a deck that really only needs around 4 lands or so to function, when you cast Endless Horizons do you always exile all the lands even if you know your opponents could have enchantment removal?

I am considering Oblivion Ring as spot removal, especially for planeswalkers. I think I can run Witchbane's Orb over Leyline to save money, I know it's not as good, but it gets the job done. I also have a Gideon Jura and a Karn Liberated, could those work here? Aurification is also a card that I've been considering using for awhile, it could be a very poor man's Humility perhaps? Planar Collapse seems like an obvious choice to run as does Final Judgement.

If you have snow-covered plains, a little known card called Cover of Winter is pretty good in this style of deck, I hear.

Oblivion Ring is definitely a good choice. Also consider Faith's Fetters for shutting down 'walkers and gaining some life too. It even works on manlands, which could otherwise be a problem for you.
I'm not to crazy about Cover Winter but Faith's Fetters is a great choice, didn't know it could hit PWs.

I like Martial Coup over Zenith. Makes guys and Wraths.

Perhaps some Man Lands?
Witchbane Orb instead of Leyline of Sanctity

Timely Reinforcements
Porphyry Nodes
Holy Day
Opal Guardian 

Ahhhh! Porphyry Nodes is insane! Edit: Good, but not insane, didn't realize it died if there are not creatures on the battlefield.

 Martial Coup is also good, but I don't like that it's not instant. 

This is what I have so far, but I want to fit those cards I just mention in the deck somehow.

Enchantment (14)
3x Endless Horizons
4x Ghostly Prison
4x Oblivion Ring
3x Soul Snare
Instant (2)
2x White Sun's Zenith
Sorcery (8)
4x Day of Judgment
2x Final Judgment
2x Phyrexian Rebirth
Planeswalker (1)
1x Gideon Jura
Artifact (9)
4x Goblin Charbelcher
3x Sun Droplet
2x Witchbane Orb
Land (26)
26x Plains

I didn't put in a draw engine. I'm considering just putting in Howling Mine and praying that my friends will cut my some slack because I'm giving them card advantage as well.
