Trying to keep your budget in mind I have several suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category. My main advice is if an effect is available on a creature, use it over other versions (i.e. Stratus Dancer over Negate).
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not cheap overall but Animar has several good options for reasonable prices. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Animar, Gaea's Hemorrhoid

Hey, well done on a budget, but what's with the manabase?
I understand this is budget, but you can't possibly think that 36 basic lands for a three color deck is any where near competitive; deck is in the competitive hub. Where's Command Tower ? The majority of rest of the deck other than Disentomb and Raise Dead is built with a competitive mindset therefore I know you have good card sense with the budget that you have. Even on a low budget you can include playable dual lands:
- Command Tower
- Exotic Orchard
- Llanowar Wastes
- Yavimaya Coast
- Path of Ancestry
- Opulent Palace
- Sunken Hollow
- Necroblossom Snarl
- Vineglimmer Snarl
- Tainted Wood
My advice is if budget is a concern cut some expensive price cards to add some playable dual lands. Grim Tutor and Heroic Intervention are two cuts to consider since these cards can be replaced by lower price options Lazotep Plating and Profane Tutor . On a budget Fauna Shaman is not worth it since it could be replaced with a less expensive price tutor Shared Summons .
Consider a backup win condition that doesn't require that you draw your entire deck and hope that Oracle or Maniac live/resolve? Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Venser, Shaper Savant and Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be infinitely blinked or cast for three different win conditions. Peregrine Drake + Venser, Shaper Savant + Yarok, the Desecrated is another infinite mana combo.
Consider budget backups to all your main combo creatures? Backups are helpful because without them the combo is very fragile, easy for an opponent to disrupt.
- Venser, Shaper Savant and Temur Sabertooth backup Deadeye
- Dream Stalker and Man-o'-War backup Shrieking
- Peregrine Drake backup Cloud
Good luck with your deck.

There are others, but I'm really scratching my head here.

In my opinion Explosive Vegetation is not playable in commander. Or any other format lol. Maybe in a lands deck. If you already had all the 2 and 3 mana untapped land spells included.
Have you run this deck in paper? Have you made any changes? I think defensive counter magic should probably be in the deck even in its most casual shell.
Whenever I see simic colors I immediately think of degenerate combos. Infinite mana + Finale of Devastation or Thassa's Oracle lines are my favorite, but I dig the Kiki-Jiki lines.Hyrax Tower Scout Splinter Twin and Combat Celebrant all add to those lines. If you use Intruder Alarm it combos with kiki jiki plus can give you infinite mana with mana dorks like Bloom Tender and Gyre Engineer by bouncing a Shrieking Drake or Dream Stalker kind of like the Ancestral Statue line. If you run Beast Whisperer or Guardian Project or The Great Henge bouncing the Shrieking Drake gets you to a Thassa's Oracle win.

Bounce spells might be good as a splash, but maybe just as a one-of, like "break glass in case of emergency" sort of thing. In Animar decks, you just recast the one creature after it's bounced, but in this deck it would mean bouncing at least two cards all at once, then using resources to recast them all. To that end, Shrieking Drake over Dream Stalker because a) it only costs one, and b) has flying.
