: Add one mana of any colour that a land an opponent controls could produce.

@jgmarques Yeah, I've been thinking about replacing some of the tapping lands with basics, actually.
Unfortuately, I don't have the cards you listed at this time, but I'm always looking to upgrade my lands via trading. It's a little hard in a small town though, lol.
When starting a new deck with multicolors, regardless of how many colors, I enjoy having more non-basics than needed to help test the deck, then adjust the amount of each color and add more basics as I see what is and is not needed. I don't like testing with too many basics and risk getting a stream of only one color at the start of a game, then I've just wasted time. I'm overly cautious, lol.
I'll go ahead and toss those lands into the maybe board to help other people though, for sure!
BTW, if you want to link a card you can use double brackets on the both sides of the card name:

Going into 3 colours on a budget can be tough, but there are some great options - Field of Ruin, Exotic Orchard, Aether Hub/Crumbling Vestige, etc. They aren't perfect, but a little planning can get them to stick.
The biggest thing I can offer is that splicing to arcane has various combos with 'copy spell with x cmc or less' effects. Izzet Guildmage+Desperate Ritual is traditional, but guildmage plays nice with everything else. Similarly, Sea Gate Stormcaller, Dual Strike etc.

This is a nice list, superfriends/tokens is a neat strategy. I have a number of failed decks built around Blood Funnel to that effect - (its fun but I don't reccomend it).
On the playing 3 colours in budget modern; the reason Opt/Serum Visions effects are good is they help find lands in hands that would otherwise have problems. If you can play 'mono blue' until you hit three lands, you can go hard on islands and draw power as a kind of fixing.
You don't need to break the bank if you want to improve the manabase. It just takes a little tinkering.
If you can afford to delay coloured mana, Field of Ruin is both untapped, disruption and searches a basic turn 3+. Terramorphic Expanse is extra evolving wilds copies, but being all taplands is a major drawback. Aether Hub fixes mana once, before becoming colourless. Exotic Orchard has cheap copies out there, Prairie Stream is good if you are otherwise running/searching lots of basics, Interplanar Beacon does a lot in superfriends.

Ok, I have a few budget friendly suggestions for you. I'll try to break it down using your custom categories.
Lands: Exotic Orchard.
Card Advantage: I'd move Emberwild Captain here (or defense) thanks to drawing off the monarch. Welcoming Vampire deserves a spot though. Subira, Tulzidi Caravanner might deserve consideration too depending on how often you end up handless.
Haste: Ogre Battledriver gives haste while giving a boost... including for all your tokens that enter tapped and attacking making them all 3/1.
Utility: Odric, Master Tactician and Gustcloak Savior both allow you to swing safely turn after turn instead of just once like the Master Warcraft. Mirror Entity is another cheap way to buff your whole team and finish games.
Attack Triggers: Signal Pest and Soltari Champion are both excellent ways to buff your entire team (including all the enters tapped and attacking stuff) by 2 power which adds up FAST. Fireflux Squad exiles tokens and digs for actual creatures off the top of your deck for free... it's pretty nuts.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Isshin - Army of Darkness

Playing in black and white, you don't have any issues with card draw, so I wouldn't concern yourself with putting card draw options in your mana base too much.
I personally don't like filter lands like Fetid Heath or Mossfire Valley, or anything from those cycles. It's like having signets in your mana base, and that just bothers me for some reason. I don't want to pay mana to tap a land for two mana.
I would say that you would probably want to run between 10 and 12 dual type lands in a two-colored deck, depending on the balance of the two colors in the deck. Of course, your mileage may vary. I like to run as many basics as I can. If budget isn't a concern for you, then running all the pricy duals may be your jam. My budget is limited, so I run rather budget mana bases, usually with tapped lands. Aside from the dual lands you run, staples like Command Tower and Exotic Orchard help to smooth things out. And don't forget about useful utility lands, based on what your deck wants to do. Ghost Quarter and Tectonic Edge are always pretty useful.

Hey, I saw your forum topic asking for help.
The manabase and ramp/color fixing could use some tweaking, but more draw is really what your deck needs. That's the area of your deck to consider spending some on for improvements.
- Mentor of the Meek --> Aggressive Mammoth
- Welcoming Vampire --> Mowu, Loyal Companion
- Ripjaw Raptor --> Aetherstorm Roc
- Idol of Oblivion --> Woodland Mystic
- Return of the Wildspeaker --> Leyline of Abundance
- Shamanic Revelation --> Renata, Called to the Hunt
- Harmonize --> Arcus Acolyte
I choose these cards as suggested cuts because you have better cards that do the same or similar effects. More draw especially repeatable draw sources replacing some of this redundancy could help gameplay.
The manabase is overall good except the amount of Forests, which is too many. The ratio of color sources in the manabase is 28 green:16 white:16 red. 28 green is almost double amount of another color which is a little much. Forests are important, you want them as most lands, but I don't think you need 12 of them. Green one drop mana dorks are good, but I don't think only three of them are enough to play so many Forests to hinder the other colors in the chance that you have one in your opening hand with a Forest. Crop Rotation can get any land by sacing a Forest.
Some manabase problems are 12 Forests, the Slow Fetch lands, Aether Hub, Arctic Treeline and Highland Forest. 12 Forest reduces the color fixing from lands too much. Grasslands, Krosan Verge, Mountain Valley are too slow for what they do and are not needed because you have Marsh Flats and Windswept Heath.
Aether Hub is relying too much on three cards that proliferate or Aetherstorm Roc. Consistently Hub won't have enough energy to make colored mana. Arctic Treeline and Highland Forest are nice that they have basic land types, but you don't really need them because you have Shocks and Tangos.
Consider cutting some basic Forests for more budget lands that can make green or another color?
- Crop Rotation --> Aether Hub
- Exotic Orchard --> 1x Forest
- Path of Ancestry --> 1x Forest
- Jungle Shrine --> 1x Forest
- Game Trail --> 1x Forest
- Fortified Village --> 1x Forest
- Battlefield Forge --> Krosan Verge
- Naya Panorama --> Grasslands
- Opal Palace --> Mountain Valley
Making these lands changes can balance the ratio of color sources to 26 G:20 W:20 R. This balance keeps the amount of green close to what you have currently while increasing the amount of white and red. Of course most of these are the least expensive price playable lands that you could add. There's many others that are more price/better lands.
Good luck with your deck.
