Vedalken Certarch But you probs wont have the craft for it.
Rimewind Taskmage But 4 snow may be late to get.
Stonybrook Angler But paying 2 to tap a critter isnt really playable.

Are you using Garza Zol, Plague Queen for any reason? The new legendary Inalla, Archmage Ritualist is pretty easy to get right now, and taps for effects(and lets you get copies of Trinket Mage and Inspired Sprite to get more draws/artifact search.) Praetor's Grasp is always an amazing card to find something in an opponents deck.
Since you have a combo you want to get out, you might like cards like Whir of Invention, Artificer's Intuition, the more expensive Fabricate to get paradise out, and for getting the Freed from the Real try Drift of Phantasms and Dimir Machinations. You can also run the other transmute's like Dizzy Spell or Clutch of the Undercity etc. to find other things in your deck too.
Racecourse Fury is not especially high on the threat list, so you can have essentially free haste-enable on the cheap.Quicksilver Dagger enables tap+damage+draw a card for cheap. Unscythe, Killer of Kings is a silly card that might find a place.Hematite Talisman and Lapis Lazuli Talisman let you untap other creatures to boot.
I'd lose some of the instant/one-off untaps- they're cheap but only good for one motion, whereas you want to be doing it over and over again. Same with ETB like Breaching Hippocamp. Chain Stasis is fun because you could pay 2 to do it again on another creature, making it 2 - trigger inspired. Tidal Bore can let you get out an extra untap or tap when you're strapped for mana.
Thassa's Ire isn't the most mana-effective option but it's a one-drop that lets you do it over and over again as long as you have mana. You also may want something like Fortuitous Find to bring back things. Recurr is always good! :D

I'm trying to build a wizard tribal deck with the cards I own, focused around Docent of Perfection Flip and Sigil Tracer The cards listed here are the ones I want to use, still have to filter them before uploading a built deck. Please help me with ideas (any combo you see among the cards I propose???). Keeping it budget or zero purchase is the main goal.
The cards are:

Hey man this deck is awesome! I was thinking about making a deck just like it. Kiora's Follower and Stonybrook Angler could be added for additional tap/untap and Drowner of Secrets adds a mindcrank win condition.

For the ultimate budget commander I suggest Zedruu the Greathearted. Play pillow fort or Voltron with cheap auras.
Another cheap to build commander is Merieke Ri Berit. The strongest way to build her is actually Wizard tribal. Yes I know she's not a wizard herself. It actually stops Shattergang Brothers incredibly well and it's matchups are much less polarized than Azami, Lady of Scrolls. I have seen several builds with Merieke in the last few years but it wasn't until I saw the power of ESPER Wizards that I became a true believer.
Here's a starter list of cheap CMC (and $$$) Wizards to run with Merieke:
Lighthouse Chronologist (Go for damaged or heavily played) Magus of the Unseen (Sometimes good sometimes not)
Oracle en-Vec (Much better than he looks. Combos with wizards or spells that tap down their stuff.)
Azami, Lady of Scrolls (Cheap card draw)
Apprentice Necromancer (Bad early good late game.)
Aphetto Grifter (Really means "Tap a wizard other than this one and stall forever")
Aphetto Alchemist (Makes your commander into a kill spell and helps other wizards.)
Captain of the Mists (Combos with +
Musician (Slow but an ok starter Wizard)
Glen Elendra Archmage (Expensive but it's a flying Negate)
Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder (Optional, helps vs things like Dictate of Erebos)
Ertai, the Corrupted (Good with Endrek or enchantments that return to hand after they leave he battlefield, which there are 2-5 of in esper colors for 2-3 mana)
Rayne, Academy Chancellor (AMAZEBALLS!)
Sage of Fables (Slightly less amazeballs)
+ (HA HA you play Wizards!? F.U. then buddy!)
Sower of Temptation (Expensive, will be an upgrade)
Stonybrook Angler (More commander combo stuff)
Supreme Inquisitor (This is very powerfull once your in the mid to late game)
Tolarian Entrancer (Don't laugh, play like this is your win condition, eventually they will have to block it and you profit.)
Wandering Mage (Maybe)
Havengul Lich (Maybe)
New Prahv Guildmage
Mistmeadow Witch (Filler)
Venser, Shaper Savant
Magus of the Abyss - If you play Darksteel Plate or later get Avacyn, Angel of Hope or can just make tokens each turn.
So yeah...that's probably more creatures than you know what to do with eh? Esper Wizards 4 life.
