This is a personal deck building tenant of mine, so take this suggestion worth a grain of salt but I say "The more interaction, the better". You only have 5 instant speed spells, and of those spells 2 are counters. Since blue is such a predominant color in the deck i'd suggest you include more counterspells. Some suggestions include:
- Forbid (given that you like to like to bring things back from the graveyard - the buyback could be beneficial depending on the circumstances)
- Pact of Negation (not exactly budget, but it's worth a mention)
- Arcane Denial (depends on your personal philosophy when it comes to giving your opponents more options...but worth a mention)
- Swan Song

Hey, good budget version of Talrand, nice Consecrated Sphinx.
Budget cards to consider adding:
Peregrine + Displace + Archaeomancer/Mnemonic Wall makes infinite blue mana from blinking Peregrine and infinite casts of Displace which equals infinite 2/2 Drakes from Talrand. Displace is an instant meaning can do this combo on an opponents turn and then attack with infinite Drakes on your turn.
- High Tide: excellent ramp when playing so many Islands and cards that can recur it to cast it again. Can get more ramp out of Tide with Peregrine, Frantic Search, Snap as these cards let you untap Islands to make more mana.
- Bident of Thassa: more repeatable draw with 2/2 Drakes.
- Mystic Speculation: buyback.
- Capsize: buyback.
- Forbid: buyback.
- Serum Visions
- Reality Shift
- Reliquary Tower
Cards to consider cutting:
- Temple of the False God
- Spell Snuff
- Thought Collapse
- Of One Mind
- Dazzling Lights
- Stream of Thought
- String of Disappearances
- Dictate of Kruphix
- Ethereal Forager
- Hieroglyphic Illumination
- Chemister's Insight
- Portal Mage
Good luck with your deck.

Forbid is surprisingly playable in Tasigur of the golden banana. just a thought in case you hadn't already considered it.

Looks good! I definitely recommend Capsize here. Mizzix's ability reduces additional costs like Buyback and Kicker, so you'd be able to play Capsize all day.
These might interest you too: Dominate, Curse of the Swine, Epic Experiment, Thousand-Year Storm, Forbid, Rite of Replication, Spellseeker, Fists of Flame (surprise commander damage!), Braingeyser, Mind Spring, Pirate's Pillage, Pirate's Prize, Spell Swindle, Reality Spasm (untap those lands!), Turnabout

Chandra, Flamecaller is excellent in this deck. It is a board wipe, a wheel and occasionally free damage.
Shared Animosity is so good with Locusts. It's usually game over for the whole table when you wheel into it.
If your friends don't mind you being a little mean, you could play Opposition. You can use your tokens to tap people down during their upkeep and they won't be playing any magic.
Merfolk Looter seems a bit weak for the deck. Invisibility also seems a bit strange. You don't seem like a Voltron deck necessarily. In any case, something like Trailblazer's Boots can give you the effect you need without being a fragile Aura. there are much better counters than Cancel. I like Forbid.
