I may be one of the few that actually remember playing Mercadian Masque in the Type 2 (Standard for you whippersnappers.) format. My favorite card of the set, outside of
. It was only a 6/6 unblockable for eight mana, which is way overpriced by today's current Standards. A little surprised you didn't mention
the card. It was the first of it's kind with the most recent "reprint" being
. Or my favorite/annoying combo consisting of
There were five artifacts, one land and a handful of white rebels that created lore of a creature that would eventually end up being printed for Commander 2017, Ramos, Dragon Engine . The first iterations of the artifact dragon came from Henge of Ramos , Eye of Ramos , Heart of Ramos , Horn of Ramos , Skull of Ramos and Tooth of Ramos .

Thought that just popped into my head: One of SynergyBuild's and my complaints was the lack of diversity resultant from a single deck.
If you are looking to make another ~$10 deck with a very different play-style, consider Talrand, Sky Summoner . Talrand makes a really good budget/starter commander-- Opt , Mana Leak , and Negate are all dirt cheap and will be useful cards for future builds. Counterspell only costs about $1.00, and is fully worth 1/10th the deck's cost. Beyond that, there are plenty of three-mana Blue counters/draw cards that are cheap and playable at the budget level and a number of high-mana-cost Blue creatures that make solid finishers.

Here are some suggestions:
You would probably benefit the most from a better ramp-package. Since you don't want to bother buying expensive lands, I'd recommend signets (which are really good for fixing colors) and talismans: Orzhov Signet , Azorius Signet , Dimir Signet , Talisman of Progress , Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Hierarchy , & Smothering Tithe has powerful potential as well.
Ponder and Preordain are extremely powerful in helping you fix colors in the early game. They allow you to dig for the right lands. They're also good at any point in a game. Gitaxian Probe is easy to cast (at basically no cost) since you gain life.
Speaking of life-gain, you have some good ways to gain but no payoffs for it. Alhammarret's Archive seems to combo well with your general. Other ones that come to mind are Graveborn Muse , Greed , and Necropotence
I'd cut Crush Dissent and No Escape for cheaper counterspells. Lower CMC instants give you more opportunities to use them. Swan Song is BROKEN. Counterspell is good. Dispel is amazing but only if you feel your meta is threatening you with counter magic of their own. Muddle the Mixture and Narset's Reversal are unreal. Sometimes you'll misplay them though - they require some experience.

Updated: I've added Thoughtseize to assist with the issue of drawing Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker or Restoration Angel to had. This is in addition to the Faithless Looting . It provides a discard outlet for , but also is handy if another player has tutored a couple times and need to disrupt their combo (since we don't have Counterspell , Dash Hopes doesn't cut it, and Red Elemental Blast and Pyroblast are a little too specific for me).
Always something useful to Thoughtseize , downside is that it puts you at a card disadvantage and only 1 other opponent, so 1v1 it's a good trade, in a 4-pod can be detrimental, but also provides the modular benefit of discarding your own cards in a pinch.
