So, I own a copy of Flooded Strand since opening one in Khans block. I think I'll try that. Biggest note that I forgot to add is that I only have about $200 American to allocate to this. Luckily, I do have a friend who is giving me his Blood Moon so I think that will also help.

The first cuts I would recommend for this deck would be Laboratory Maniac and Arcane Denial . Yes, it is always good to have a back up plan in your deck (lab man), but I really don't think t is needed here since the cards in your command zone pretty much say: "2UUUU, you win the game" (if played correctly). Next Arcane Denial , as an EDH player I love the card, but in a 60 card format (actually 58) I think it gives your opponent too much card advantage. (One cute little trick to remember about Arcane Denial is that you can treat it as: "discard a cantrip and pay 1UU, draw three cards" if the cantrip costs U.) Another thing I would think about adding is Gitaxian Probe since it cycles through your deck and gives knowledge of an opponent's hand for just 2 life.
BTW, you make a fair point about the issue the fetchlands may cause, but on the flip side you could build you deck in the sense that you are in a 53 card format ( Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Paradigm Shift , Gitaxian Probe , Misty Rainforest , Scalding Tarn , Flooded Strand , and Polluted Delta ) and then that would make it easier to balance the quantities of the rest of the cars in the deck.

First, in commander you can't have planeswalkers as commanders. Second, (I'll stop trolling now, lol) It doesn't seem you have a budget here so why not add Misty Rainforest , Scalding Tarn , Flooded Strand , and Polluted Delta for the extra shuffle effects and minimal deck thinning. Some other possible additions: Windfall , Tolarian Winds , and Scroll Rack . Oh yeah and don't forget in commander we can use planeswalker as commanders (shout out to Teferi, Temporal Archmage ).

Ancient Tomb , Mana Vault , and Mana Crypt are probably the hardest to replace. Tomb could probably be replaced by Crystal Vein or Svyelunite Temple or just another land, same with Flooded Strand . The mana rocks(and Mox Amber ) could be swapped with any of the mana rocks in the sideboard.
The Ajani Steadfast , Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Thassa, God of the Sea , and Venser, the Sojourner you would probably want to swap out for evasion effects ( Ghostform , Levitation , etc) or other voltrony stuff ( Sword of Vengeance and stuff).
Finally, the weird stuff that hates down creatures ( Crawlspace , Elspeth, Sun's Champion , and Retribution of the Meek ) could be replaced with another sub-theme, if you swap out the rest of that stuff as well.
To be honest, hating down big creatures is a meta build. My playgroup is a lot of non-competitive combo and big beats, and this deck can prey on both of them pretty well.

I forgot to mention Arid Mesa , Flooded Strand , Marsh Flats & Windswept Heath can be pretty useful to include. While at first they may not seem to do much, they make an incredibly strong synergy with Crucible of Worlds as you'll always be guaranteed to hit your next land drop that way by continually being able to pull them out of your graveyard. (Until you run out of basic Snow-Covered Plains of course.) Buying fetch-lands for such a minimal improvement might not be worth it, but if you have spares they really make a good synergy!
Speaking of snow-lands, Sunstone is a really good panic-button if one of your opponent plans to deal lethal out of nowhere. Being able to deny someone a combat step on demand is pretty strong, especially if you have a Crucible of Worlds to fuel it.
