You have a lot of artifact/enchantment hate. While it's not bad to have, for the most part it's not needed maindeck as many popular modern decks don't run any artifacts or enchantments. If you did want to run any in the maindeck, instead of things like Fade into Antiquity, you can use cards like Qasali Pridemage as it can be relevant and can be cast if your opponent doesn't have anything that you can blow up with it.
Nullify is a decent card but double blue might be hard with your current mana base. Remand or Mana Leak would probably be more castable. If you had a fetch/shock mana base (more on that in a sec) you could get away with double blue or maybe even Cryptic Command.
As for your mana base it can get pricey but arguably the best way for 3 color decks is to use a fetch shock mana base. The shock lands for you are Temple Garden, Breeding Pool, and Hallowed Fountain. As they have basic land types, they can be tutored for with Misty Rainforest, Flooded Strand, or Windswept Heath. The beuty of this is a windswept heath can find any of the 3 shocks or a basic land to allow it to get any color of mana that you need, untapped if necessary. You would want to keep some basics in there too though.

Looks like a fun deck, Rafiq is great and can be very powerful!
Saw your deck on the commander thread, here are some quick suggestions, hopefully some of them you like and are in your budget. Cheers!
Lands: cut Vitu-Ghazi, the City-Tree and some of your ETB tapped lands for some etb untapped multicolor lands to help your color production be reliable: Command Tower, Yavimaya Coast, Adarkar Wastes, Prairie Stream, City of Brass, Breeding Pool.
ramp: Sol Ring, Simic Signet,Azorius Signet, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach.
Wrath of God > Terminus.
Rout > Martial Coup.
Counterspell, Arcane Denial, Swan Song, Swords to Plowshares, Cyclonic Rift.
Eternal Witness, Seasons Past, Mystical Tutor, Archaeomancer.
Recurring Insight, Fact or Fiction, Stroke of Genius.
things to help Rafiq of the Many crush your enemies:
Rancor, Inquisitor's Flail, Steel of the Godhead, Shield of the Oversoul, Swiftfoot Boots, maybe Command Beacon, Sword of Vengeance, maybe Sigarda's Aid.
given how many creatures creatures you run, you might want some tricks to protect your board from boardwipes. Bastion Protector, Make a Stand, Dauntless Escort may or may not be useful.
anyway those are just the things i thought of. I built a rafiq deck a while ago, you should be able to find it in my profile if you want any more suggestions, i went a little bit more in on the pillowfort/control/combo side of things but the list was a bit pricier too. anyway have fun and keep crushing!

Grasslands, Bad River, Flood Plain, Bant Panorama, Esper Panorama and Krosan Verge are super budget fetches. I would re-include Murmuring Bosk, because of it's forest type it is essentially a fetch-able Sandsteppe Citadel. The KTK block fetches are at a low right now, with all three in Atraxa's colors at $10-15 (Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Windswept Heath. For more U/G lands Yavimaya Coast, Lumbering Falls, Opulent Palace, Hinterland Harbor, Botanical Sanctum and Temple of Mystery are great budget options. Breeding Pool itself though is under $10 right now so I'd jump on that.

if you want, you can look at my deck Sliver Lords EDH
basically, you probably would want Sliver Hivelord as your commander.
in your dual lands you're missing your nice lands, such as Tropical Island, Bayou, Taiga, etc. also, the fetches and shocks, Flooded Strand, Polluted Delta, Bloodstained Mire, Wooded Foothills, and Windswept Heath, Misty Rainforest, Verdant Catacombs, Scalding Tarn, Marsh Flats, and Arid Mesa. Your shocks are Blood Crypt, Breeding Pool Godless Shrine Hallowed Fountain Overgrown Tomb Sacred Foundry Steam Vents Stomping grounds Temple Garden Watery Grave.
lol you forgot Sliver Hive

@JerichoDarkstar-Yeah I guess you're right. I did not realize they were fetchable.(Not really reliable in standard unless they plan on reprinting fetches). But in modern it could work. The cycling ability is nice, but does not work unless you have it in your hand.(Fetches put them on the battlefield. So regarding the fetching part of them it is still not the best. They enter tapped and can put you a turn behind, besides....you can just use shocklands in modern like Breeding Pool and other things. In my opinion I would say these are the worst rare lands in standard. Can not say complete worst because of Warped Landscape and other common and uncommon cards.
