Evacuation occurrence in decks from the last year

All decks: 0.04%

Ramp to four then tempo is good, but you need to either get value from all your lands and dorks, build reliable 2 for 1, or draw more cards.
Some of that can be handled by sideboaeding - heal 6 is a 2 for one against burn for example, but a clear plan for big, low cost creatures and go wide stats is a must; bounce effects like Evacuation will shine here as they also let you reuse snakes.

Providing budget alternatives is not that simple because the deck is balanced as is and changing any single card would alter its equilibrium. I will try my best, but do keep in mind that with the following changes you will need to play the deck a lot slower than before. Without free counterspells you will need to wait for when you can leave mana open, and so on and so forth. Hopefully, the fact that all the decks in the tournament follow the same budget restrictions can make up for this. Here are my budget changes:
These are all direct substitutions. I took the cards you mentioned and replaced them with their budget counterparts. If you think some of them aren't good enough (and in most cases they are not), then you can consider including something completely different instead. I'm thinking about cards like Propaganda, Torpor Orb, more removal, more card draw, more ramp. You have the privilege of knowing the decks you will be facing, so you can tweak the deck according to your matchups.
If you want to be prepared against a token deck, try shaving some single target removals or counterspells for a few extra board wipes. Just be extra careful against Meren because they tend to play a lot of Fleshbag Marauder-like effects, which is something this deck really struggles with. Make use of your haste enablers to kill your opponent during the very first turn you play Lazav, before he or she has the opportunity to play those cards.
I wish you good luck for your tournament, and let me know about your results!

I tend to always add more removal than needed but atm I think I only see one boardwipe in Devastation Tide.
I'd add another one or two of these that I think within your budget; Curse of the Swine for targeted exile removal; Evacuation is straightforward, simple, and can be played as an instant; Inundate there's only a few of your creatures that aren't blue; or River's Rebuke can really hose someone with your Ninjutsu theme.

Alrighty! I definitely feel like this deck is reaching its conclusion. Specifically, the conclusion of dealing in hypotheticals - without holding the cards in hand and seeing how they fair against my playgroup, I fear there aren't any more substantial changes I can make.
I'm also afraid that the budget for this deck is still a bit outside of my reach. Luckily, this doesn't all have to be built in one installment. Without changing the decklist here on Tapped Out, these are the more expensive cards remaining and my budget choices for initial purchase:
- Despite having already cut out the worst offenders, Shock Lands (ex. Breeding Pool), City of Brass, and Mana Confluence still feel like substitutions I can make later.
- For now, Basics will suffice - though I may have a Shock Land or two hiding somewhere in a 60 Card deck.
- The only Creature that really fits the bill here is Craterhoof Behemoth. Frankly, it's fantastic and a Green staple for a reason. However, it too seems like something I can build up to.
- For now, I choose you End-Raze Forerunners!
- Phyrexian Altar...
- Although in a previous comment I mentioned $20+ as being around the place I'd try and trim things down, I think Phyrexian Altar is one I'll actually spring for.
- Unlike Craterhoof, whose only role is as a finisher, the second Altar is something I'd be happy to see at almost any stage in the game. Plus, if it ever comes down to it, Phyrexian Altar is playable in almost any deck - certainly a deck of any color(s).
- Nothing to see here! The only noteworthy cards (Sylvan Library + Parallel Lives) are already cards in my collection, so there's no conflict of interest.
- Crickets chirping
- Which leaves Cyclonic Rift. I mentioned this card in my first comment alongside Expropriate and Tooth and Nail as a Good Stuff card that feels like needless fluffing for my nest. C-Rift, however, made it this far in the revisions where the others did not.
- My choice of replacement actually takes things in a different direction. Rather than another Bounce Wipe (ex. Flood of Tears, Evacuation, or my previous slot-holder Whelming Wave), I'm actually going with Disrupt Decorum as my substitution.
- I don't know. Something about forcing your opponents to duke it out just seems fun and satisfying to me. And it still meets my goal of lowering their defenses for an aggressive rush.
That's all I've got for now - I still plan to check in every once and a while, so as always feel free to reach out with ideas.
Best of luck, stay safe, and wash your hands thoroughly!

Not too hot over Devastation Tide here since all your stolen permanents will be returned to their rightful owners; I think purely creature-based bounce like Engulf the Shore or Evacuation is preferable

I would definitely go heavier into countermagic. Your list seems incredibly top heavy and against any relatively fast deck you're just going to get overrun.
I would steer away from the good-stuff kind of playstyle you got going on here because it feels very unfocussed, and go heavy into a specific archetype. Maybe you like combo and want to stall out until you draw your pieces (which is how I designed my Azami list: Shameless plug at the end) or maybe you want to go with a big mana deck (which is the impression I'm getting from your list right now and what I'm going to give suggestions based off of).
So for a big mana deck, you want to run as many rocks as you can, so stuff like Vault, or Crypt/Grim monolith if you can afford it. Use low cost board clears like Evacuation to keep creatures off your back. I'd suggest running a few zero mana counterspells for interaction as you're ramping up, like Daze or Disrupting Shoal and FoW ofc you can afford it. After all you are playing blue, and it would be stupid to not to abuse the instant speed interactive potential here.
As for the payload, probably keep them to cards that will instantly win the game. Omniscience imo is a trap because it's really expensive, a countermagic magnet, and if you hardcast it you're not going to have the mana to fight over it. I would suggest alternatives like Palinchron because it combos well with High Tide.
TLDR: Trim down the top end to just the best cards, and fill the lower end with mana rocks and interaction. Here's my list for reference. It's the polar opposite but I hope you find it useful nonetheless. A good start though. My deck:

I don't think Teferi is legal here. But I think you should play every wheel effect you can get your hands on. Wheel of Fortune and Windfall for sure. Day's Undoing would be as good since ending the turn doesn't matter if opponents are losing on the spot to it. Howling Mine , Underworld Dreams and all their clones do very well for me. You're playing Islands so Cyclonic Rift belongs. I also like Evacuation if you don't kind resetting your board as well. Just the first couple of ideas that came to mind.

OK here is an update of the exact sets and conditions I have because the binder isn't right on all of them. Attached their market prices for NM:
Sol RingMP ($10.80)
Liliana of the Veil ($53.87)
Lightning Greaves ($6.74)
Dark Ritual ($0.50)
Eldrazi Temple ($7.21)
Underground River ($4.31)
= $90.1. Shave off a few bucks for the MP sol ring so $87
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath ($40.57)
Uro, Titan of Nature's WrathF ($45.78)
Does this sound good to you? Everything I own is LP+/NM except that sol ring.
