You should look into getting some of the cheaper color fixing lands such as Shivan Reef and Temple of Epiphany. Both were reprinted in the last duel deck.

As for lands that will help your collection you can invest in City of Brass, Mana Confluence, Ash Barrens, Boseiju, Who Shelters All, Cascade Bluffs, Maze of Ith, Myriad Landscape, Reflecting Pool, Riptide Laboratory, and Tarnished Citadel

AK_ZMS In a budget mana base, sure, go ahead and add cards such as Mana Confluence, City of Brass, and Reflecting Pool. However, this mana base in no way needs those cards.

I made this deck list exactly how I plan to assemble it in real life. The 5 basic lands are from Unhinged, and yes, they are 5-10 dollars per land.

They tap for 2 mana yes, but I wouldn't count them as two. There's a bit of adisconnect between number of sources and total produced maan, but that's a lot more complicated of a conversation. the important thing is that they techincally count for zero by themselves, as you can't play them as your only lands (they bounce themselves).

As for lands to play (within a budghet of course), Command Tower, Mana Confluence and City of Brass all tap for any mana colour you need. Exotic Orchard can also help out and Forbidden Orchard isn't bad either as your primary source of damage has flying. Hinterland Harbor and Drowned Catacomb finishes off your check land cycle (which are good), you have pain lands like Yavimaya Coast, Llanowar Wastes and Underground River. That being said, don't feel like you have to run the full cycle of a land. I would persoanlly run the full cycle of shocks and check lands, but would be reluctant to run all 3 temples.

Given that you have minimal land search ramp, I wouldn't increase the number of basics you have by too much, however you could up your total basic count by 6 (2 of each) if you included more basic land searching. You also have the Panoramas (Grixis Panorama, Jund Panorama, Esper Panorama, Bant Panorama) which gives you colourless the turn you play it, but you can later crack it for a basic.

As for ramp, Chromatic Lantern is good fixing. Nature's Lore and Farseek are both good as they can fetch shocklands. Cultivate and Kodama's Reach are both decent, as is Rampant Growth. you also have the signets (Golgari Signet, Simic Signet, Dimir Signet) as well as Talisman of Dominance and Fellwar Stone.

I would go with Mana Confluence instead of City of Brass, since it can't be manipulated to deal the one damage by opponents, unless you have something in the deck that prevents that one damage. With the Chromatic Lantern, City of Brass would still deal the one damage to you, while Mana Confluence would give you the option to pay 1 life or just tap to add the mana with no repercussions. The same fact is true about Prismatic Omen.

Forbidden Orchard and Reflecting Pool are also good options to replace the City of Brass. The 1/1 that Forbidden Orchard gives to opponents is negligible considering a lot of the creatures you are playing are way bigger than that, and it is like the one damage you would take from City of Brass could be dealt to someone else. Reflecting Pool is also good with all of the fixing that you have already. Deathrite Shaman is also a good card to have, especially with the 10 fetches that are in the deck, and just the graveyard hate that it brings along with it.

For Spire of Industry, i already said why i don't use it, City of Brass and Mana Confluence have the same problem, you can't afford to loose hp against aggro MU, you have nothing to tempo with the deck. And gemstone mine is unusable after 3 turns. You don't need a lot of colored mana in the deck, just 1 or 2 for ancient stirring, that's all, so Aether Hub do perfectly the job.

As you are running Darien and First Response I recommend getting for landbase:
Adarkar Wastes, Grand Coliseum, Tarnished Citadel, Nomad Stadium, Shefet Dunes, Ipnu Rivulet, Cephalid Coliseum and City of Brass.
Archangel's Light is extra heavy and dosen't do much. How about Resolute Archangel?.
Sanctified Charge is also an overcosted spell. How about a light and permanent pump with Intangible Virtue? If you like it to be at instant speed, there is Pride of Conquerors.
Hour of Eternity is also an amazing Token creator in blue decks.

Your lands also need some tlc. First, get Command Tower and Ancient Ziggurat in here. Also consider Mana Confluence, City of Brass, Exotic Orchard, and Reflecting Pool. Vizier of the Menagerie is also great here for mana fixing.
