Hey Privian, thanks for commenting. You can definitely reduce the cost of the deck by swapping out the cards you listed. Here are my suggestions for replacements:

Plateau > Needleverge Pathway  Flip

Scrubland > Brightclimb Pathway  Flip

Badlands > Blightstep Pathway  Flip

Mox Diamond > Fellwar Stone

Grim Monolith > Dark Ritual

Imperial Seal > Grim Tutor

Ravages of War > Armageddon

Ravages of War is identical to Armageddon, I just happen to have a copy of Ravages I picked up years ago.

You could also run Mox Opal, but in that case I would also run the Mirrodin artifact lands (ex:Vault of Whispers.)

Welcome to the game.

At first glance, there are two things that jump out.

1) This is not legal for the Modern format (Dirge of Dread and Vault of Whispers are emboldened in red to indicate they’re illegal in the format). This isn’t a big deal at all, as both can be substituted for different cards quite easily.

2) You could use some dual lands in your mana base. There are a huge variety of Modern legal lands that can produce and , some better (and therefore more expensive) than others. Top tier stuff would be Bloodstained Mire and Blood Crypt, but they’re also the most costly. Middle grade options are things like Blightstep Pathway  Flip or Haunted Ridge/Dragonskull Summit, and the cheapest (but still perfectly playable) duals would be lands that enter tapped—Bloodfell Caves, Cinder Barrens etc.

Any of the above would work here, the idea being to be able to play either a black or a red card as soon as possible, without having to wait because you don’t have the appropriate color.

There are some better budget lands than the ones you are currently running. I've put parentheses around some that aren't quite as cheap and bolded the ones that are definitely in your price range.

Painlands: Llanowar Wastes, (Karplusan Forest)

Check lands: Dragonskull Summit, Rootbound Crag, (Woodland Cemetery)

MDFC lands: Cragcrown Pathway  Flip, (Blightstep Pathway  Flip), (Darkbore Pathway  Flip)

Scry lands: Temple of Malady, Temple of Malice, Temple of Abandon

About the manabase:

1) The deck is aggressive and low to the ground so you want to curve out well and use the maximum amount of mana you can - this means that the budget taplands Bloodfell Caves should definitely be taken out.

2) You have very restrictive mana costs, specifically in Lightning Skelemental , so you definitely need to run a decent number of dual lands.

Because of these two reasons, I think you definitely need to add more dual lands (at least 8) even if you need to double the budget just because the deck suffers so much with the current manabase (because fucking WotC decided that lands were going to be the priciest thing to keep any deck running smoothly). The Dragonskull Summit s in the maybeboard should definitely be included. Smoldering Marsh would be good if you only ran 8 nonbasics, but if you decide to add more then I wouldn't put it in. Same with the Blightstep Pathway  Flips, although they aren't as good as the summits for their cost. Foreboding Ruins is another option for less expensive duals, although for some reason the BR SOI lands are more expensive than the other ones.

You could probably also cut down a little on lands to 18-20, since you have Igneous Pouncer to help tutor your lands and mana fix.

I really enjoy the idea of this Elemental Deck. I kind of want to make a full power one with no restrictions after seeing this list! I do have a recommendation though; I would replace most of the Mountains and all of the Bloodfell Caves with the least expensive duals that can come into play untapped. Maybe something like this:

This will allow you more opportunity to utilize the black mana when you need it. Hope this helps! Either way, +1 for the sweet budget deck!

You should realllly replace terminate with Fatal Push . You should be triggering revolt most turns, even without fetches, and the card isn't expensive anymore.

Also, I know you really want to keep the deck budget, but you should probably consider adding more dual lands. Not having a discard outlet and not being able to cast Ball Lightning and Lightning Skelemental would suck balls. Dragonskull Summit and Blightstep Pathway  Flip (or Smoldering Marsh ) are all solid options around 2-4 bucks each, since I don't think this deck wants to play the budget gain 1 life enters tapped duals.
