Creature — Elf Druid
When Springbloom Druid enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice a land. If you do, search your library for up to two basic land cards, put them onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

Springbloom Druid Discussion

I like the addition of Oko in here as an annoyance who can just keep coming back. I also didn't know Gravebreaker Lamia had that second ability, so I'm going to have to add it to my Muldroth deck right away!
I notice you run several more spells. I understand the counterspells as necessary interaction, but some of the others might be able to be replaced by recurrable (if slightly less efficient) permanents.
With Atris, Oracle of Half-Truths you can get a mini-Fact or Fiction that you can recur each turn.

Saskia is super awesome! Not sure how competitive my advice will be; generally speaking my decks are built for a tabletop friend meta, but I could certainly point out a couple of high value cards for Saskia!
Being four colours, there is a plethora of spells and creatures you can use and all manner of strategies to employ. I settled on Infect as it wasn`t a deck type that existed in our meta yet.
Saskia is all about creatures, and there`s a few that work particularly well. Sower of Discord is great both as a finisher and political tool, Sigarda, Host of Herons, Shalai, Voice of Plenty & Dauntless Escort to keep your creatures safe, and Knight of New Alara to make your beaters even... beatier.
Otherwise having fast access to all four colours of mana is obviously a big priority. I could prattle on for some time about land cards, but I won't. xD Instead I'll suggest a few cards that work particularly well in this style of build: Fellwar Stone, Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern, Birds of Paradise, Springbloom Druid, Exotic Orchard & Reflecting Pool.
Happy Brewing! :)

I'd say drop cards like Ghalta, Primal Hunger, Reclamation Sage, Springbloom Druid. Hexdrinker, Fertilid.. basically anything that's too tribal-adjacent for different options. I know Animar is your commander, but turning creatures like Reclamation Sage or Springbloom Druid into an instant speed option like Krosan Grip or Harrow respectively allows you to play more interactively. Since you're in blue colors now, throwing in a Counterspell or three would help keep your beaters safe from people who would rather see them dead... AEther Snap would be a pretty rough hit if it went uncountered! Also, card draw options that rely on a creature's power are very good in a deck like this. Rishkar's Expertise, Return of the Wildspeaker, Life's Legacy, Greater Good or Momentous Fall all turn your board state into card advantage or provide ways to turn a negative situation into a positive one. Finally (and I'm sure this is coming soon) but you would probably want to fix your mana base to accommodate Temur colors. Being able to cast your commander is always a nice part of the format. :) One other mana rock you may be interested in if it's not too expensive for you is Doubling Cube. I've always found it to be fun in hydras myself. Hope something I said here helps. I'll be around if you want to discuss the deck more!

Isn't this backwards of how these leagues normally work? I thought the winner is the only one that doesn't get the budget bump, so the most powerful deck doesn't snowball.
Anyway, Mindwrack Harpy is the most pushed intro deck card I've ever seen. That's my first add.
I also like putting in more creatures with ETB effects. It's kind of awkward that you'll want to tap mana dorks for Hogaak. Glowspore Shaman, Golgari Thug, Crow of Dark Tidings, Gamekeeper, and Mire Triton can all help get Hogaak out by turn 3 if you have a good turn 1 play.
There are a lot of good gold cards in BG graeyard stuff, too: If you have anyone that's relying on indestructibility, Drown in Filth is a good budget option to feed your graveyard. If you're built around Hogaak, I'd think it should regularly be a hard removal spell with upside. Nyx Weaver is just a great card in any graveyard deck, and cheap, too. Jarad's Orders is a good double-tutor. Underrealm Lich is worth the $2, in my opinion. I would also ask yourself whether Eternal Witness is $3.50 better than Acolyte of Affliction/Golgari Findbroker/Treasured Find. Storrev, Devkarin Lich didn't get much fanfare, but the power and price tag are there.
Animist's Awakening is good value at just over $1. World Shaper and Splendid Reclamation are a little more expensive, but higher impact than other $4-5 cards I see in the list. Lower on the ramp ladder, note that Harrow and Springbloom Druid put a land in the yard. Funeral Rites isn't a bad draw spell for this deck. Same for Winding Way, Gather the Pack and Relentless Pursuit. Syphon Mind doesn't have much to do with the theme, but I start with it in most of my black value decks. Dark Deal could be very good, especially if your draw power is maximized and you can use your yard as a second hand. Greenwarden of Murasa is just a powerful card. Same for Phyrexian Delver.
Some other general budget cards for considering: Ransack the Lab, Corpse Churn, Dead Reckoning, Grapple with the Past, Hatchery Spider, Millikin, Mindwrack Demon, Once and Future, Splinterfright, The Mending of Dominaria, Skullwinder, Blood for Bones, and Vigor Mortis.

My spoilers in the comment above arnt working for me so im trying something different. "If you want to sift through some cards you can look at each section, but I would recommend just looking at the first grouping to start with, as I went a bit too far with the other lists. Those lists are fine to just look at ideas or "good cards" but there are far too many to call them suggestions.
