You don't want to protect your commander with Misdirection or counter their counterspell? Regarding glimmer I can see that, you're just the first competitive list I've seen with it. And I do not discount the cantrips as I have several in my own baral deck, I just was wondering how it played out for you.
I agree with the notable exclusions as you don't have a way to protect them and giving opponents cards is rarely optimal.
The next cut is hard... but maybe Mana Leak for Misdirection - Leak gets worse late game and misdirection can be cast for free which is huge in cEDH. If you still don't wish to include it thats fine. It's a pet card of mine that I like to see in most blue because of it's versatility. Many a times I wish I had misdirection over force given my particular meta. With urza in your meta, I can see it's use. Not sure what else you face but I'm assuming it's something with activated ability such as Yawgmoth or Sisay? Thrasios?

Okay, time to get writing, Deadpoo111, this is gonna take a bit, so please bear with me. I am going to run through your response rather quickly, and I came up with about 4 separate ideas running back and forth in different parts, so if they aren't the same point just tell me and I will respond to each part individually!
Your list currently sits at $11.53 on tcgplayer, before I just used the built-in tcgplayer price/tappedout estimate, but I forgot that includes basic lands and can mess with the result. Point still stands that it is over $10
Your second point was about my decks, I didn't intend to claim I made better or more cheap decks, I most certainly didn't make cheaper ones for EDH, and I didn't try to claim it, looking back that was misleading. I was intending to claim that there are separate similarly cheap decks that are good, so if you claimed 'close enough' to $10 it wouldn't be an adequate response. I know that you have some strange notion it actually is $10, but that is seemingly false, by tcgplayer.
Perhaps elsewhere, at an LGS somewhere where shipping isn't an issue this could be $10 or less, but I don't have those numbers. The numbers I have show that it isn't $10, and even if it is wrong, calling me ridiculous is naive or intentionally misleading, idk which.
The third point was something about how you did something amazing. That is subjective, I can claim it isn't, you can claim it is, really a simple point, we disagree, no worries here man, I didn't want to mess you over by that, just a simple comment.
The fourth is the only one I am legitimately upset by, you clearly went over how I was offended, salty, or lashing back with whatever motive you want to assign to me. Assigning motive is an extremely underhanded and misleading tool. I was never salty, you told people I was with no evidence. I did my research, you told people I didn't with no evidence. I wasn't offended at the time, you told people I was with no evidence. I never called you a liar, you said I did with no evidence. Does that sound like I am being 'ridiculous?'
Those are my logical responses to your strange dismissals of what I wrote. If that doesn't suit you, how about a response in favor of you.
I actually am really happy you are making more. I quite enjoy helping new players and trying to build and give decks out. I do it quite often, giving people 100-200 dollar edh decks tuned and made for them if they are a close enough friend, or $20 decks to new and inspiring players even for formats I don't play. I ask for the metagame details for playgroups across the other side of the world to help build decks for people that ask me to, given colors, budget, level of competition, format, playstyle, you name it. The fact that someone else is making stock versions of what I do brings me great joy.
In fact, I want to help you, I don't think I would spend money online without knowing exactly where it goes to, but I would help build decks for you in your same theme, with any budget, commander, colors, playstyle, competitive level, etc. I would enjoy helping you, if you made sure that you weren't going to make blanket clickbait statements, mislead other people with serious complaints by using straw-men arguments, and were more helping people than bragging about doing so.
So, up to you what this means, whether you will take this as a helping hand in giving more players more decks, or as an insult to what an amazing and incredible deck you've made, but I made in about an hour a deck that costs 9.88 without basics, or 10.18 with basics for Edh that I barely had to think about:

Otherwise, for FSims81, I agree, let's not tear down any deck ideas or work. I wouldn't dream of it. I will show flaws in them and how to fix them if they ask for advice.

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.

Hey, I was working on a Field of the Dead deck in Pioneer and found that Kiora, the Crashing Wave fit absolutely perfectly. You could try it in Pioneer if you wanted (here's my start: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/fog-of-the-dead/?cb=1574915555), or you could continue in Modern.
If you continued in Modern, the mana would be difficult and I actually think going three or four color could work given the constraints for Field of the Dead . White for Holy Day / Dawn Charm or black for Darkness / Abrupt Decay / Painful Truths are both good options. You could go up to crazy numbers of lands and play any of Arboreal Grazer , Explore , Courser of Kruphix , and Growth Spiral instead of your current creatures to ramp every turn so you can get the combo up and running by turn 5. Alternatively you could go for control instead of ramp with Thoughtseize , Abrupt Decay , Spell Pierce , Mana Leak , etc.
