Hey, good job for your first Commander deck. Nice Tezzeret the Seeker :)
When on a budget for the manabase it's better to rely on basic lands and dual lands that have interaction with basic lands. These can replace dual lands that will always ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Azorius Guildgate and Dismal Backwater . The Guildgates and Life lands are not better than a basic land.
Lands within the budget to consider adding:
- Caves of Koilos
- Spire of Industry
- Arcane Sanctum
- Ash Barrens
- Sunken Hollow
- Prairie Stream
- Port Town
- Choked Estuary
- Buried Ruin
Land to consider cutting:
- Azorius Guildgate
- Dimir Guildgate
- Dismal Backwater
- Scoured Barrens
- Tranquil Cove
- Jwar Isle Refuge
- Vivid Creek
- Dimir Aqueduct
- Temple of Deceit
- Temple of Silence
I see too many creatures that don't interact with Alela. Nonartifact/enchantment creatures don't have much interaction with Alela. My advice is cut a lot of these creatures for more artifacts, artifact creatures and enchantments. You have Tezzeret that's a good reason to expand on artifacts.
Lots of mana rocks are good with Alela because they can be used to make ramp to play her faster and then after she's on the battlefield they can create Faeries. I see you have the Signets already which is great, but consider more budget mana rocks?
Three drop mana rocks such as Coalition Relic which you have are fine, but if you can replace a three drop mana rock such as Obelisk of Esper , Mana Geode with a one or two drop mana rock then this will help your deck.
Consider cutting the creature base down to only a few? Keep: Strix, Architect, Shimmer Myr, Simulacrum, Assembly, Master, Seer, Rider, Titan? Can then replace the other creatures with more artifacts/enchantments to make more interaction with Alela.
Cards within the budget to consider adding:
- Etherium Sculptor
- Foundry Inspector
- Silver Myr
- Sai, Master Thopterist
- Bident of Thassa
- Throne of the God-Pharaoh
- Cranial Plating
- Mirrodin Besieged
- Scrap Trawler
- Junk Diver
- Sharuum the Hegemon
- Nihil Spellbomb
- Wayfarer's Bauble
- Conjurer's Bauble
- Manifold Key
Etherium Sculptor and Foundry Inspector are good as low mana cost artifacts that reduce the mana cost of all other artifacts you cast. CMC artifacts are free for you to cast with one of these on the battlefield which can help to chain cast artifacts and make a lot of Faeries. Casting two drop mana rocks for is also good. Sai, Master Thopterist and Mirrodin Besieged are three drops that any artifact you cast after creates an artifact creature token.
If you're wanting to attack with a large Faerie/Thopter army then Bident of Thassa and Cranial Plating are cards that you want. Bident can be busted repeatable draw with attacking flying creatures. Cranial is good to equip to Alela since she has flying and the damage she does to a player is Commander damage. Throne of the God-Pharaoh is a deceptively powerful two drop artifact with Faeries. The life loss this can do will add up fast since it's repeatable at your end step making all your opponents lose life not just one.
Good luck with your deck.

Roon is the engine of the deck, but he's a five drop which makes the engine pretty slow without more ramp. Consider adding more low mana cost 1-3 CMC ramp?
- Sol Ring
- Avacyn's Pilgrim
- Elvish Mystic
- Llanowar Elves
- Kiora's Follower : untap a land, Roon, mana dork, mana rock or another creature.
- Faeburrow Elder
- Fellwar Stone
- Springbloom Druid
- Risen Reef
- Wood Elves
Roon can benefit from cards that can untap a creature giving you more activations of his blink ability.
There's several budget lands to consider adding to upgrade the manabase.
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Yavimaya Coast
- Ash Barrens
- Bant Panorama
- Seaside Citadel
- Prairie Stream : Flooded Strand can search for it.
- Canopy Vista : Strand and Wood Elves can search for it.
- Sunpetal Grove
- Fortified Village
- Port Town
- Scattered Groves : Strand and Wood can search for it.
- Irrigated Farmland : Strand can search for it.
Command Tower is a budget staple of multicolored decks. Dual lands that have interaction with basic lands are good when playing a lot of basic lands.
Budget tutors can help to search for an put a certain creature into your hand or onto the battlefield. These tutors let you play less high mana cost creatures instead use a tutor to search for one when you have to the mana to cast it.
If you like any of these suggestions then I offer more advice about what to cut. Good luck with your deck.

The biggest improvement you can make to this deck is adding some better lands. Ideally, you want to include lands that can enter the battlefield untapped and provide either colour you might need. Here are some good, budget-friendly options:
- Port Town , provided you have a decent number of Plains and Islands. This card's usefulness diminishes some as the game drags on.
- Glacial Fortress . This card's usefulness increases as the game drags on.
- Nimbus Maze is a bit better, though it still requires typed lands. This, at least, can enter untapped and be used for colourless in a pinch.
- Hallowed Fountain is not quite a budget card, but, of all the lands on this list, it's the one most worth having. Shock lands are among the best in the game, and these will still be useful as you move on to less budget-friendly builds.
- Adarkar Wastes is a solid option, allowing you to generate colourless for free, and whatever colour you need for a relatively insignificant cost.
You have a couple cards where you are running 5 copies of them.
You might want to add more interaction in the form of removal and counterspells.

Usually, when I help people out, I don't look at their deck, simply their lands, and help them out in that area. I will do the same for you. I recommend you add some of the following lands, or at least consider them: Temple Garden , Breeding Pool , Hallowed Fountain , Glacial Fortress , Sunpetal Grove , Hinterland Harbor , Windswept Heath , Misty Rainforest , Flooded Strand , Razorverge Thicket , Scattered Groves , Fortified Village , Canopy Vista , Brushland , Wooded Bastion , Irrigated Farmland , Seachrome Coast , Port Town , Prairie Stream , Mystic Gate , Waterlogged Grove , Lumbering Falls , Yavimaya Coast , and Flooded Grove . These cards should help your deck out a lot! If you find any of these suggestions useful I would appreciate it if you upvoted my deck: A Deal With the Devil EDH! But nonetheless, hope this helped, good luck on your deck, and have a nice day!

Ok, Nice Deck, I would think it functions well, the only problem I see regards the lands. You should be consistent with the lands you have, and should thus consider adding the following cards: Seaside Citadel , Temple Garden , Sunpetal Grove , Scattered Groves , Razorverge Thicket , Windswept Heath , Brushland , Wooded Bastion , Hallowed Fountain , Seachrome Coast , Port Town , Adarkar Wastes , Mystic Gate , Flooded Strand , Breeding Pool , Waterlogged Grove , Yavimaya Coast , and Misty Rainforest . Once you add these, I can guarantee your deck will be much better! Nonetheless, I hope you find these helpful! If you do, please upvote my deck: A Deal with the Devil, and keep up the good work! Good luck on your deck, hope this was helpful, and have a nice day.

Hey rodrake. As with many of my budget decks, the mana base could use a lot of help - Port Town or Temple of Enlightenment would both be relatively cheap replacements for Azorius Guildgate . Beyond that, you could probably replace Opt or Court Hussar with better card draw or selection. Maybe the new Drawn from Dreams ?
