I'm kinda sorta almost there... here's the cards I still need. Most of the cards are bulk. And here's a link to my binder
1x Dusk / Dawn
I'm not picky about sets. Again, here is my binder. Thanks!

Mana base: You could add a couple of Prairie Stream to have some really good targets to fetch. A single copy of Moorland Haunt could also be useful, of only to make use of your graveyard. Also, you need a bit more land (you have only a little card draw, and want to both play creatures and keep mana up for playing things in your opponents turn). But you'll need 23 or 24 lands, so you are sure to hit land in the early game. At 20 lands, you hit the first 3 turns (mostly), but after that it takes a while before you hit land number 4.
Bounce: I'm not too keen on bouncing your own creatures (when you could blink them). In general, it takes more mana than you'll have available in a typical game of modern. In many cases, you use instant-speed blink to avoid removal spells, and if you Unsummon your own creatures, they're still removed, from your opponents point of view (even if it's a bit less permanent than they would have liked). More Cloudshift, less Saving Grasp.
Consider whether something like Janjeet Sentry really is worth it. 3 mana for a creature with a tap-ability, which also requires some payment. Perhaps Blade Splicer seems boring, because "it's what everybody uses", but ask yourself how often youd like to have a 1/1 and a 3/3 creature for 3 mana (with and additional 3/3 token for every blinking of the 1/1 creature), and how often you'd wish for Janjeet Sentry for the same mana. There might be legitimate scenarios where sentry is better, but in general I think Blade Splicer is the better card. Besides, tap-abilities and blinking are a really poor mix.
Mill: erhm... you've nowhere near enough mill to actually have that as a viable win-con. Especially Merrow Witsniper seems like a miscalculation - you spend 2 cards (say, Saving Grasp and Merrow Witsniper), to mill 1 card. It's going to take some time and effort, before that reaches the level of a Tome Scour. Minister of Inquiries maybe seems like it could be ok, if you have something really good to spend eneergy on (2 energy for 1 mana is ok, right?).
Soul Warden should be in SB. Good card, but not useful in all games.
Flickerwisp deserves mention. It does not have flash. But you can blink it with instants and that's almost as good. The real strength of that card, is that it can target any permanent, including your opponents. It can break up tron for a turn, reset a planeswalker or Aether Vial or... or... so many other things.

I think you should try and play at least 1 other type of dual. If Flooded Strand+Hallowed Fountain is too expensive then I would suggest Seachrome Coast. If that's still outside budget then I would say Prairie Stream.
I think Spreading Seas is better than Aquitects Will because you can just straight up win games by messing with peoples mana. Turning your Abzan opponent's Overgrown Tomb into a Opulent Palace is much worse than just straight up turning into an island that they cant use.
As far as other noncreature suggestions if Path to Exile is outside the budget then I would play Dismember. Path or Dismember, Unified Will, and another Spell Pierce, over Negate, Disssolve, and Devouring Light (even though you get the tap synergy with some of your Merfolk).

Prairie Stream and the other dual lands that function the same should be included.
Sweet list indeed, +1 :)

Hey, you're using 21x ETB tapped lands. This is a lot, making the manabase really slow. To speed up budget manabases rely on basic lands and dual lands which have interaction with basic lands, check lands such as Rootbound Crag and tango lands such as Cinder Glade. Check lands and tango lands also have interaction with eachother which is very helpful. Budget manabases that use green are also better off playing more basics because they can be tutored for with land ramp spells such as Rampant Growth and Cultivate. Pain lands such as Underground River are also better than lands like Bad River.
In theory using the ETB tapped fetch lands such as Mountain Valley while slow can work with the tango lands such as Smoldering Marsh. The problem with the way you've set-up the manabase is you're not using enough basic lands, only 8, to make this interaction worth it. Even if you fetch a tango land it's still going to ETB tapped because it requires at least two basic lands in your control.
A playable budget five color manabase that has an equal amount of all colors is hard to construct therefore my advice is to pick two colors as your two most important colors and then splash the rest. Rely on artifact ramp such as Signets: Gruul Signet, Simic Signet and green land ramp spells, basic lands and ramp creatures such as Sylvan Caryatid to help to fix your colors. This means including more artifact ramp and cards that can fix your colors of mana than you would probably like, but is necessary for the deck to function.
I don't know what your Dragon decklist looks like so I can only use the original Dragon precon's manabase as reference. Looking at the original precon red is the most important color because a lot of Dragons have heavy red casting costs. Green is second and it's just as important as red because you want to cast land ramp spells in the early game which can not only ramp, but also fix colors of mana. Black is next, white and blue should just be splashes.
Here's a manabase for you to consider. The manabase focuses on green and red as the two most important colors and splashes the rest of the colors. This example $44 manabase has 16 basic lands and includes 23 green sources, 23 red sources, 16 black sources, 14 white sources and 14 blue sources with 6 lands which ETB tapped. It's set-up to take advantage of the interaction between basic lands, check lands and tango lands.
