built this deck just so I could play Clear the Mind I have always loved the card but had not built a deck that wanted it. I chose not to play any infinite combos so...if Dreadwaters doesn't get there I either attack with mull drifter, or crush my opponents will to live by looping Deprive

Spotred, I guess so. I don’t like the idea of bringing back a card to the opponent that they can use later on without any type of consequence like them taking burn damage the more cards they have in hand or your, you get the picture. 2 drop counter for T5feri? Deprive.

So a few comments.
Rune Snag is actually not very good. There are enough things that randomly eat your gy to make it worse than other options.
Plasm Capture is expensive and the pay off is mana. Which doesnt really work for modern due to lower curves being the norm.
For wincons, going up to 28 lands with Field of the Dead can be a solid win con. You would have to massively diversify your lands with utility, better mana, and a mix of regular and snow basics to turn it online quicker. Primeval Titan is also a solid threat for that plan as it also fetches FotD and utility lands.
You could also max out on the Splendids and go for a big instant X spell with your ramp and repeated untaps. USZ would be an OK option.

Glacial Fortress and Temple of Enlightenment are a nice budget replacements for Evolving Wilds depending on whether you want speed or scrying. Cancel is not a good replacement for Counterspell (there really isn't one if you think about it) because there are plenty of counters with the same converted mana cost that does more, i.e. Faerie Trickery//Dissipate, Disallow, Dissolve, Hinder (personal favorite), etc.. If you're looking for 2 mana counters I'd suggest Negate/Psychic Barrier (simple and to the point), Rune Snag (better with time), Remand, or Familiar's Ruse/Deprive. As far as a replacement for Shield Sphere goes, there are cheap defenders out there. While not at the same cost Wall of Omens and Wall of Denial does a fantastic job of keeping attackers at bay, you could also double up on Fog Bank with it's slightly bigger cousin Guard Gomazoa. Lightmine Field/Archangel of Tithes/Ghostly Prison also does a pretty good job of keeping attackers at bay. Hope this helps.

Just going by Scryfall (even going as deep as <0.90c in terms of value rather than the full dollar) there are quite a few that spring up that I'd be interested in seeing made on such an extreme budget:
Rashmi, Eternities Crafter -- Simic Control/Tempo is something I'd be super interested to see on a budget, not gonna lie.
Tasigur, the Golden Fang -- Recursive politics on a budget?
Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter -- Only because I have a budget plan for her myself, I'd be interested in seeing another take on it!
Darigaaz Reincarnated -- This is more of a pet idea for me, I love Darigaaz.
Sachi, Daughter of Seshiro -- If you're looking for a tribal commander, Shamans are a very unique tribe.
Those are just some that spring to mind for me looking over the list, whether you run with any of them or not I hope you enjoy the process of budgeteering! I know I do whenever I get the itch!

With Cryptic Command, Archmage's Charm, Deprive and etc., you need to have untapped blue mana for the first 4 turns basically. Your deck is tempo, so you can't really afford a slow start. I would personally either play more lands or cut the ruins. As for tron, Ceremonious Rejection and Damping Sphere are cards that comes to mind that does help a lot there.
I think you just have to accept that there are limitations to what you can do with only 1 color, without disrupting your own game plan.
