Ultimate Price Discussion

Good removal: most of the time Murder is worse than Victim of Night or Ultimate Price or Doom Blade or Dismember. Granted, all of these are restricted in one way or another, but it's always a small restriction.

Swords to Plowshares would be a better removal spell than Ultimate Price. It looks like you could use some card draw, too. Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Phyrexian Arena, and Underworld Connections are all good choices, and running a deck with so many 1/1 token creatures just screams for a Skullclamp. You could refill your hand quite easily with that.

Unfortunately, control is not an easy list to make competitive on a budget. The main way that we can keep the budget down is changing our style of control. For example, instead of reacting with Snapcaster Mages and Cryptic Commands, we can be more proactive in our approach and use hand attack! As Hannibal said above, Inquisition of Kozilek will be a HUGE upgrade, and with seeing so many reprints lately is a cheap pickup now! Alongside of inquitions you'll want to run 2 Thoughtseize. However, that's still above $15 so you could swap that out and use Duress as a budget option. They hit mostly the same cards anyway, 75% of the time I cast Thoughtseize, Duress would probably do that same thing.
The next thing that we can do is run awesome removal. In esper colors, we have access to a lot of good spot removal. Path to Exile and Fatal Push are the best out there, but both are a bit pricey at this moment. In their place, we have access to Go for the Throat, Condemn and Ultimate Price. Those should help to shore up some creatures that might be an issue in your games.
Lets talk blue now. Cantrip City! Opt is a must add in my opinion. Instant speed draw a scry/draw? Yes please. Turn 2 leave up mana for a kill spell, opp doesn't play a creature? Plan B is draw a card, which was actually plan A you just didn't know it! I'd definitely run 4 of Opt, it's too good not to. Also, Serum Visions works in a similar manner, just worse for control but better for aggro. If you want a control route, go 4/2 split. Then we can talk about counterspells.... There's a few cheap ones that come to mind. First, Remand. It's a tempo play that lets you draw a card. Not the best for hard control but when just trying to buy a turn, it works real well. Next is Mana Leak. These two cards don't belong in the same deck, so I'd only pick one. Leak is a better answer, since it is permanent, but remand lets your draw a card at the expense of being temporary. Take your pick. Next, a little more expense in the $ section, but Spell Snare is amazing. Dark Confidant, Tarmogoyf, Scavenging Ooze, Eidolon of the Great Revel and so many more important cards are in that 2 drop slot that you almost always hit something relevant with this card. It doesn't look like much, but man does it do work. Another option is Countersquall. Counter a noncreature spell and deal damage? Sure thing, that's fair.
Lastly, 4 Dragonlord Ojutai might be a bit excessive. Legend Rule sucks... Speaking of her though, Ojutai's Command is something I've always wanted to play in modern but never had the chance to. Maybe that would be a good alternate to a few copies of her.
Best Wishes! Sorry I gave you so much to think about, If you have any questions let me know, I've played decks all my life!

I love this deck, but... no Ghostly Prison? No Starfield of Nyx? Let's go full-on enchantress on this bitch. Curse of Misfortunes is monstrous, especially when paired with Overwhelming Splendor. Sigil of the Empty Throne is a beast in enchantments, too. Worth considering is Daxos the Returned but he's not fantastic. Great blocker generator.
Good removal can be Doom Blade, Ultimate Price, Sudden Demise is good vs. blue, Divine Reckoning, Wrath of God, Blasphemous Act, Fumigate. All great with little-to-no creatures. Lightning Helix is also neat.
This one's more optional, but Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is good life gain, gives you a few good blockers. And if you're running Exquisite Blood you might as well have Sanguine Bond up your sleeve to go infinite.
This deck is awesome, super cool and fun. I love the flavor of it, the functionality, and the fact that group hug comes in black.

Take a look at Archenemy 2.0 Volume 1: Bolas. It's some MEAN control for pretty budget. Just cut Kolaghan's Command and Fatal Push for maybe Doom Blade, Anticipate, or Ultimate Price. Other than that, just redo the mana base.
