What's very easy to obtain are Woodland Streams at about <0.01$ a piece. Since your deck doesn't have any one-drops, your first turn is always doing nothing. Now, with Woodland Stream you can get both colors and still keep your pace.
Also, if it's not too much for you, Deeproot Elite seems pretty strong in this deck b/c a lot of your creatures are Merfolk. If you can't obtain them thats ok, b/c Merfolk Mistbinder can also serve in it's place.
Riddleform doesn't seem too strong in this build. All of your spells are either sorcery-speed targeting your own guys, which you can't do with Riddleform, or Instants that are made to be cast on your opponents turn and not your own. I would probably replace it with either Silvergill Adept if you're going towards Merfolk or maybe Treasure Map Flip.
Take out Garruk's Horde. There are much better replacements for it such as Scaled Behemoth or another Arborback Stomper. 7 mana is just too much for something that gets targeted by all control-like removal (Vraska's Contempt, Cast Out, etc,)
Other than that, good luck on this budget deck! My brother always says to me: "Make a deck that you can be proud of, not a super-budget deck that MIGHT go 3-1" and I respond with "You just don't get it do you. Money doesn't grow on trees or bushes!"
I am a big fan of budget decks!

Thanks for your feedback! I chose Brainstorm because of the amount of tutors, individually weak cards and shuffle effects (17). So you can consistently shuffle away unneeded cards like multiple copies of Ramosian Sergeant or even Amoeboid Changeling, that you can tutor up anyway.
In my extremely casual test games Brainstorm worked pretty good. I almost never got locked. But I didn't really test it against good pauper decks or anything.
I can imagine that your suggestions would make the deck more competitive. If you do it, you could also kick out some shuffle lands and add four copies of Tranquil Cove and upgrade the mana base.

I think if your game plan is to overwhelm, as soon as you're playing Fog you losing. Your goal is to overwhelm with creatures so Lead the Stampede Should help you draw into them, and then Elvish Visionary and Sea Gate Oracle both draw you into more creatures. I don't think flash does anything for you so I might drop Shambleshark to just make stuff 4 ofs. I'm sure there's more counter shenanigans you can pull but I don't know what they are.

Add Brainstorm, throw in Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, and Izzet Signet. I would try to find room for Delay, Spell Pierce, and Remand. Swap Doom Blade out for Go for the Throat. It hits a wider range of problematic commanders like Yidris, Tasigur, Jeleva, etc.
Curse of chains can't be used in this deck, but Propaganda and Rhystic Study can. I would also take out Riddleform. I can't see it making a huge impact. Kiln Fiend would be better if you wanted an effect like that, but still not good. Enigma Drake gets worse as the game goes on,since Kess exiles spells you cast from your graveyard. So I would consider dropping it.
Let me know what you think of my suggestions and if you would like more.

those are my thoughts on this. I've been trying to work the deck as well. Just doesn't quite want to make it into legacy it seems
