I can not answer your question definitely, but it seems to take into account a large number of factors. I would presume how frequently a card is played in the deck's format is one of these factors. However, there are clearly other factors that go into the calculation.

Currently, the system has a lot of issues. Factors that should not make a difference, such as what printing of any given card is used, can cause the percentage to change. By way of example, I have a casual commander deck that's rated 31% competitive. If I foil 1/3rd of the cards, without changing the cards themselves, it jumps up to 37% competitive.

I have seen decks that are completely unplayable--only lands; wrong colour lands for the cards; no lands (and not one of the decks that work with no lands)--be rated 100% competitive. There are hyper-competitive, meta-defining decks that do not hit 100%. A standard deck consisting of 60 Black Lotuses will be 42% competitive.

Issues aside, but it can still be a nifty tool, as a very low percentage might indicate there's room for improvement. However, I am reluctant to postulate the reverse is true--that a high score indicates a deck is probably fine.

If you intend to use it, just remember it is more of a guideline, not a sacrosanct quantification of your deck's actual potential.

I know you are trying to keep the price low but have you ever thought about including the card Black Lotus?

This deck could not be legal in any current format of the game other than "Casual" and even then I'd bet many players would not want to play against it. There are certain cards that are banned or restricted due to their power level. You can see the Banned & Restricted list "here". Mox Sapphire, Black Lotus, Time Walk and Ancestral Recall are the main reasons I bring this up. Sol Ring was only ever printed in commander products and many play groups don't like it when people include it in a causal deck. After saying all this, the main point is to talk to your play group and discuss what they deem is fair and fun. You can play magic any way you want and have crazy amounts of fun, so long as everyone is on the same page.

The deck in and of itself isn't inherently bad. It looks like you have a good deck in mind, it just needs to be focused a little more. Try choosing 5 or 6 creatures that you like that are synergistic with each other and put 2-4 copies of each in the deck. You could increase the amount of creatures to more if you dropped some of your mana ramp. 44 of the 80 cards in your deck are mana producers. Magic decks tend to run best around a 60 cards, which is the minimum allowed. The statistics for drawing what you need/want start to skew very badly after 60 cards.

Another thing to look into is ways to either defend your things or mess with your opponents things. Cards like Unsummon and Counterspell are the most basic forms of what I mean.

Thanks for your comment:)

I will look into Gitaxian Probe for stoping that annoying Black Lotus+Forcefield combo.

Blacker Lotus literally tears up the competition so when I boost my budget I will add it for sure!!

Mox Lotus has amazing synergy with Mishra's Bauble so it might get included when that fated paycheck rolls around:)
