I was looking at the evasion as a possible swap, relying on vines/blossoming, but it is a 'how much should be cut' question, and that needs playtests against the metagame you'll face - it wouldn't be 'swap a few cards', but build a package of 10-12 cards that work together to fit in.
After a couple tests I'm not comfortable with mass as more than a 1-of 'gotcha' without something to improve the payoff, (multiples are really bad) but something like Expedite offers a little card draw and a little haste in a neat package. If it was an 8 heirach brew, I'd say differently.
Card draw is a strong option, but Light Up the Stage needs life loss that infect has trouble inflicting. If I was going that direction, I'd look at Ancient Stirrings and Plague Myr - card draw is fine, but card filtering is a lot better in these colours - seeeing as much of your library as possible to pick the things you need from it is good. That and the value plan will want redundant pieces.
I think the biggest thing is making a decision about where you want the deck to differ from u/g - knowing that you are going for an explosive turn from the hand, or race from turn 1, and how it plans to take advantage of the metagame will make the shape of the deck a lot clearer.

This is truly a mishmash, but out of all your creatures the ones that jump out at me are the disproportionately high number of spiders. Spider tribal could be an interesting direction to move the deck in, although switching to Golgari or at least Jund would probably be necessary. Black gives you access to graveyard interaction that benefits cards like Hatchery Spider while also having a fair number of good spider cards. Some modern options for such a deck are Arasta of the Endless Web , Graverobber Spider , Ishkanah, Grafwidow , Nyx Weaver , Rotwidow Pack , Chainweb Aracnir , Twin-Silk Spider , Spider Spawning , Blex, Vexing Pest Flip, Renowned Weaver , Metallic Mimic , Adaptive Automaton , Obelisk of Urd , and Coat of Arms .
If you are more interested in staying red, one option is to focus on your combat tricks with cards that like being targeted. Silverfur Partisan and Zada, Hedron Grinder are a great pair for such a deck. Cheap buffs with bonus effects like Confront the Unknown and Expedite work well in such a shell, as do cards that care about having many creatures like Might of the Masses .

Tinnuki Thank you! The suggestion is appreciated as well. I've never seen that card before, somehow I missed it during Commander Legends spoiler season (too much other cool stuff I guess haha). There's definitely some cards that could be replaced, like Expedite . Chance for Glory is another one, which I find to be great against one opponent, a group not so much.

Here are some I use, seperated by category:
Other than that, I run some value cards, like Birgi, God of Storytelling Flip, Storm-Kiln Artist , and Aetherflux Reservoir to just go on, and on, and on, and on, so on and so forth. Plenty of Draw Spells to keep the gas going, and some other Spell-slinging accoutrements.

Consider Wizard's Retort , you will most likely have a wizard on the field, and it’ll only cost a cheap 2 blue mana for a counter for any spell. Primal Amulet Flip decreases mana costs, same goes for God-Eternal Kefnet . Expedite is a really good value card. Lithoform Engine is also great. Only downside would be the mana you would have to invest into it.

Okay, my brain is extremely small.
First Brainstorm - no additional copies are created because no other instants or sorceries were cast this turn.
Second Expedite - you get the original, one copy from the first trigger, and another copy from Veyran doubling the trigger.
Third Leap - you get the original, two copies from the first trigger, and another pair of copies from the second trigger.
Is this accurate or did I make an error?

I agree with your Goblin Tutor cards in the maybe board! Expansion / Explosion is another decent option with different modes that can also copy your own stuff. God-Eternal Kefnet is also a decent creature that can copy some of your spells, pairs really well with your cards like Expedite

Not sure how valuable the one-shot +1 and first strike of feverent strike are to you, but from my perspective it's not worth losing a card. Maybe consider Expedite instead and draw into more steam? If you're looking more for the first strike rather than haste there's Warlord's Fury . Maybe a split even.
Then, looking at dive down, your creatures are quite beefy already, so maybe consider Mizzium Skin .
Overall nice budget deck idea, but maybe a little light on (cheap) creatures. +1 from me
