There's also no reason to not be playing Force of Will in your mono-blue control deck. This will help immensely if your opponent tries to do something tricky, like resolve a Stoneforge Mystic that's going to grab Batterskull or casting Liliana of the Veil.
Probably the derpiest card for Stasis is As Foretold. Like, I don't think your opponent can actually win if you resolve both. You will be able to cast Counterspells with impunity, while never having to tap an Island except to pay for Stasis.
Lastly, Meditate, Chrome Mox, and Lotus Petal are all good options. Meditate fills a similar role to Chronatog, but helps you find more answers and threats. Chrome Mox and Lotus Petal allow you to go "SURPRISE, NERDS! Turn 1 Stasis on the draw!" or even turning out an early As Foretold.

There's a lot of viable Mono-Blue Control (and control/combo) decks in Legacy.
Some you might like:
Mono-Blue Fish (this one isn't a control deck, but it's worth looking at because it's cheap to build, can be configured for Modern, and has a lot of overlap with other decks in the format)
I'm partial towards Omnishow, which is a combo deck that plays very "draw, go" before it dumpsters all over your opponent's face.
...and add something like:

Devastating Summons is also a good finisher. Sometimes you just get the nuts where you curve out, dump your entire hand into play, then make a couple of 4/4s or bigger.
Searing Blaze is another good option, but you may have problems without having fetchlands. However, the reward of it may outweigh the cons of sometimes only having it deal 1 damage. Cutting 2 copies of The Flame of Keld and adding 2 Searing Blaze may give you a good balance.
Since you are playing on a budget, there's a couple of other options to play Burn. You can go goblin-heavy, with more of an 8-Whack build (Reckless Bushwhacker, Goblin Bushwhacker) and also play Goblin Grenade.
One of my friends did a lot of grinding to earn packs/store credit to upgrade his Burn deck over time. I think he also was using Brute Force, Rubblebelt Maaka, Titan's Strength, and heroic cards for a while too.
