Tapped lands aren't great, especially when you need 3 colours and they produce 2, so I'd recommend that Thornwood Falls, Jungle Hollow and Dismal Backwater should be replaced with 4x Opulent Palace and a forest and island.
Rather than Curiosity use Mask of Memory, it sticks around if the creature is killed and can be played with any colour of mana.
Dead Weight is essentially a Disfigure that you can't cast on your opponents turn. You would be better served with 3 Disfigure.

I think you.have too many utility lands or lands that come into play tapped and only provide one color. Generally speaking I maybe use 1-2 such lands at most. There are a few 5 and 2 color lands you have not yet included: Exotic Orchard, Blooming Marsh, Reflecting Pool. Barring that some rocks or dorks that tap for all colors may help

Oh there's way to afford this, you just make some necessary cuts to the manabase as a start. Using weaker lands like Rupture Spire, Opulent Palace, Transguild Promenade, Esper Panorama and the others, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse. It slows the deck down considerably but it would still be playable.

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.

Not sure how I didn't +1 this at all yet, but thanks for coming up with this deck! I actually made this deck as the first deck I have ever owned for EDH. I made a few minor changes to it that you might like as well that are generally just better options.
1 CMC lower and 3 lower toughness for both Hexproof and the ability to either make Mimeoplasm pseudo unblockable, enable Mimeoplasm to be pseudo unblockable, and/or enable your entire field to be pseudo unblockable (especially off living death). Need more be said?
I saw that you were looking at this one already, and I would say its worth it putting it in. While it is a bit weaker body and 1 CMC higher, everything on your field can't be touched by targeting, and your opponents stuff can be, which opens them up to Avatar of Woe other people taking out their stuff (usually their commander).
Unless you are going to play something from another color, this is strictly better in every way and cheaper.
The other things I changed were things you had already suggested on the maybeboard or just cheaper options, such as Invisible Stalker for Looter il-Kor and Command Tower for Dryad Arbor. Either way, thanks you so much for making the deck!

@ Potential future commenters, this is a casual deck, just happens to be a thread in the modern forum.
So with whip decks, or any other graveyard reanimation strategy, you are likely going to want the most efficient ways to dump stuff in your yard. wayfinder is fine, but I feel like the ascendancy and some number of nyx weaver could be replaced with Grisly Salvage.
While whip is a fine reanimator, it only hits one thing per turn once pur turn, and it goes away at the end of things. I'd recommend Animate Dead and / or Exhume in addition to the whips to help with consistency.
Your threats are fine, but it could definitely be more fun to add in a couple of off-color duders with devastating ETB effects. Ashen Rider, Terastodon, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, Combustible Gearhulk, Magister of Worth. Because you're not casting these things it doesn't matter what color they are.

Your mana base seems pretty ambitious. I'd try to cut down to atleast 3 colors but if you are determined here's what i'd run in a 5 color deck
You could try a fetch shock mana base but thats pretty expensive. (A fetch like Flooded Strand can get any color of mana via Hallowed Fountain, Steam Vents, Windswept Heath, Godless Shrine for example)
Ancient Ziggurat works for your creatures
If you have enough tappedlands Amulet of Vigor might be worth considering
Chromatic Lantern aslo is probably needed.
