If you can afford it, here's what I would do for Land:
Here is an ultra budget version:
October 12, 2017 1:06 a.m.
That should help your early curve a bit, give you more , and help with colour fixing.
October 12, 2017 1:11 a.m.
Just noticed you are only running 20 Lands.
You would only have that number in an EXTREMELY aggressive deck i.e. One filled with only 1 and 2 drops.
You will need to adjust your deck to fit another 3 to 4 Lands in.
October 12, 2017 1:16 a.m.
At the moment playtesting is not going that well, due to colour screw.
Tag me in this Comments when you've made some changes, and I'll take another look at the deck.

So Argy I decided to go with the cheaper lands to start and if I enjoy the deck after a few hours of work I can decide if I want the more expensive ones I added the 2 servants and made room for lands

I am dumb.
I forgot to tell you that, if you are using Attune with Aether, you can take out four Lands, as they will fetch you Lands.
Also, you need to weight your mana slightly more towards , to make sure you can cast Attune with Aether ASAP.
Here's what I think the Lands should look like, now:
Of course this plan also works best with some Servant of the Conduit in the mix, as that will also stop you from getting colour screwed and/or give you extra

Sweet as thanks Argy. I now have 57 cards any advice for what I should put on for the last 3?
October 12, 2017 8:47 a.m.
I'd probably just shove three more Harnessed Lightning in there. It is such good removal, and you don't have much.
You do need a Sideboard, as well.
Put some Heroic Intervention in there, for a start.

This is playing a LOT better, now.
Actually, taking a good look at your Creatures, something like this might work:
2x Aetherborn Marauder - good for late game evasion, or to block fliers
2x Bristling Hydra - one of the best Creatures in Standard
2x Longtusk Cub - a bit hit or miss in testing
3x Rishkar, Peema Renegade - extra copy because it synergises so well with Winding Constrictor in the early game
2x Servant of the Conduit - I'd love a third copy, but can't think what I would take out
3x Verdurous Gearhulk - extra copy because it makes Creatures HUGE in the late game
1x Voltaic Brawler - I can see the value of this at all stages of the game
4x Winding Constrictor - lynchpin of the deck

If you want this to be competitive you will need a Sideboard.
Here are some cards you could use. You will need to choose the ones that suit your local meta.
Abrade - get rid of Vehicles or small Creatures
Appetite for the Unnatural - destroy any Artifact or Enchantment
Blossoming Defense - protect a Creature from a spell, pump it for extra damage
Crushing Canopy - get rid of a flier or an Enchantment

Thanks Argy I really appreciate your help this deck has improved a lot, I really appreciate you keeping in mind the fact that I have a budget as well. I will do the side board soon and will re tag you once I think it is all done
October 13, 2017 6:13 p.m.
October 13, 2017 7:25 p.m.
You can have 15 cards in your Sideboard.
October 13, 2017 8:59 p.m.
Yeah this is playing a lot better, now.
Due to the slow land speed it isn't very competitive, but it should do quite well in a casual environment.
