Quick edit For Niv to Light, put in another Despise and take out a Duress

Crux of Fate and Languish are great budget board wipes, but you probably dont need 5, 3 probably would do the trick. Duress and Despise are nice budget control cards too, though Inquisition of Kozilek isnt too expensive either an dis an insanely good card.

Some other great budget cards to consider are Vapor Snag and Unsummon and Spell Snare I personally like Frantic Inventory , Drown in the Loch , and Soul Manipulation as other good decently cheap B/U control cards.

Temple of Deceit and Choked Estuary also make v nice budget lands for a deck like this.

Also, another possible sideboard piece to round out your Duress could be Despise (since Thoughtseize is outside of your budget).

To be honest, I think the deck reads like a bit of a mess at the moment. Even ignoring how many one-ofs there are, your game plan is too scattered between aggression and control right now.

Dreadhorde Butcher, Stormchaser, and Sprite Dragon are creatures that shine in decks focused on beating down and winning by killing their opponent, while Thief of Sanity and Tasigur want to grind out the opponent into the late game with value. Running both types of creature in your deck just makes them all less effective! Also, even if your local meta made main decking Spell Pierce and Duress a good idea, playing Spell Pierce in a deck that is hoping to naturally ramp up to 7 mana to play Nicol Bolas is questionable.

I think it's possible to make a deck that is a hybrid of aggro and control, but a but more tinkering is required for yours to meet the goal. The first thing I would suggest is cutting the 2 mana creatures and putting in cards like Opt and Despise over the Spell Pierce and Duress. That way you can more easily fill your graveyard for Tasigur, who can be a fantastic way to pressure your opponent while giving you value throughout the game.

I'm just saying, Death's Shadow will be pretty useless if you've got a high life total; it sits there in your hand, a dead card. If you are going to keep it, maybe add in some things to lower your life total so that Death's Shadow actually has an impact. In the instance where you want to keep it in, you could toss in a Wall of Blood or something like that. If you do, you may even want to add in a Near-Death Experience just to win off of that. Considering the fact that you didn't like Thoughtseize, you could always put in a Duress or Despise.
