Whelming Wave is a cheap board wipe but was just a few cents too expensive to replace aetherize.

Vapor Snag and Shock are also cheap removal that might be able to replace some other card in the deck. Flame Slash is usually better as removal but can't be used as an instant-speed finisher.

Counterspells can be easily customized to hit creatures, instants or noncreatures within the budget. Choose what you want for your meta.

As for draw spells, Tormenting Voice is probably better than Whirlpool Rider against non-blue decks. Treasure Cruise is also within budget but needs an enabler. Anticipate is also cheap but I initially cut it in favour of the whirlpools based on the reasoning that they can draw you into anything if you have the combo set up (infinite mana means infinite displaces on archaeomancer+any other creature).

One final word on finishers, fireball has the same problem as grapeshot. They are sorceries. I would recommend switching it with Fall of the Titans or with Volcanic Geyser . Fireball is iconic but it sadly is not as good as other budget replacements.

Create another card with an effect that can benefit any player but can hinder your opponent when timed correctly.

captainamerica, your deck seems low on pressure and has only single target interaction, it will die to other more tuned $10 decks. I would go for a mono black zombies list and still play the anglers if you want to play a black deck.

For more info you can look at decklists of Commander's Quarters as they have a preddty good selection of ultra budget good cards. If your friends are running cheap bad decks then your list is fine (although I would add a boarwipe or two), if they are going more competitive go combo.

There are plenty of 2 card combos that fit the budget (Midnight Guard+Presence of the gond, Safehold elite+Ivy lane denizen...)

Another option is to go red deck wins and try to outpace them (goblins might be worth it as they tend to be cheap)

Next I will fit in an infinite mana combo and try to make a storm deck work.

Three questions:

When do you need the deck list?

What format is this for?

Do you have an archetype in mind?

(Sneaky 4th question, the pricing is star city games any condition cards? And doesn't include basic lands)

I am interested in helping in the challenge as this is very much my jam.

Voidmage husher and J├Âtun are in the list more as pet cards than as actual utility so I might change them for the Ice bros (Titan and Regent). The thing is I feel like I need some hexproof artifacts to equip on Lavinia to keep her alive. I don't mind much a boardwipe to get rid of her but having her eat cheap targeted removal is a problem. I will try to find a playgroup to playtest it and see if the deck needs more creatures or "lock" pieces.
