Latest Decks as Commander

Hey! I really like your list! While undoubtedly less powerful than mine, you haven't distorted the general idea of the deck. The budget inclusions you have made are all very accurate. Here are a few specific suggestions:
Mindshrieker is very random and not enough reliable, although it can be fun.
I would remove every single land that comes into play tapped and replace them with basic lands. You don't need too much mana fixing, especially considering Lazav requires colourless mana, and this strategy cannot afford the tempo loss of a land entering the battlefield tapped.
I wouldn't bother with Miscast, as it doesn't scale particularly well in Commander. Rotting Regisaur can be included in your current list, considering you are not running Dreadnought. Access Tunnel is okayish. Four mana total is a lot, but it's better than Rogue's Passage. I would consider it, especially since it comes into play untapped.
Regarding how well I think your deck would perform in a mid-high power setting, it depends. See, this strategy is very fast and all-in because it is very weak at its core. A Voltron deck that relies on the graveyard suffers a lot from both creature and graveyard removal. That's why my deck is so fast, with cheap win conditions and cheap tutors. Because you need to kill your opponents before they can stop your game plan. If you cut all the powerful cards (which are, unfortunately, the most expensive) and replace them with more expensive (in terms of mana) versions, the deck will become significantly slower and thus much easier to stop. So, if your meta tends more towards the mid power-level, I think you deck can stand a chance. But if your play environment is more on the powerful side, I think you should adjust your deck accordingly.
Proxying a few key cards would drastically affect the power level of the deck. Phyrexian Dreadnought in particular is irreplaceable and its inclusion would completely change the way the deck plays. The tutors would also help a lot bring up the power level.

Hey, I made a super budget version of the deck and was wondering if you could point out any bad cards I added or better cards I missed. How well do you think this deck could perform in a mid-high powered setting, and how much proxying a few key cards like dreadnaught could increase the power, https://www.moxfield.com/decks/--h1Uj0KfEaxIJOCLD16XQ
Also wondering what you think of a few cards
Miscast is this just better than other countermagic i added?
Rotting Regisaur cheaper nyxathid, which i cut, should i add it back in or just double down on the main combos
Access Tunnel is it too expensive to activate

I think I know this one, depends what they targeted
Opponent casts Bane of Bala Ged for 7 mana. From here you said they were tapped out.
You for 1 mana cast Ceremonious Rejection , the spell is colorless so it would be countered.
You then counter with Miscast , which targets an instant or sorcery
Not of This World is cast again, but the results depend on what they target. Ceremonious Rejection is still on the stack and has not resolved yet, he can target it since it targets a creature with 7 or more power. If declared the target as Miscast then it would have cost 7 mana,, being tapped out it is an illegal target.

What a stack!
The stack works on a first in, last out basis.
So the last Not Of resolves first, countering your Miscast . Since Miscast is countered, the first Not Of resolves, countering your Ceremonious Rejection . And because Rejection doesn't resolve, the Bane of Bala Ged resolves.

Opponent casts Bane of Bala Ged and is typed out. I cast Ceremonious Rejection , my opponent then casts Not of This World , I then cast to counter that spell with Miscast . Then my opponent casts another copy of Not of This World . What resolves?

Gitaxian Probe and Lava Dart will be really good here, Mental Misstep is probably solid too but you lose the targets of Sol Ring, Mystical and Vampiric Tutor, Top, Seal, Entomb and Tide, but there's tons of great 1 drops anyways that I'd still run it. 2 life to counter a mana dork, Brainstorm, Gamble, Wordly or Enlightened Tutor? Seems great.
Also, Storm. Grapeshot after a couple cheap or free spells can not only deal a solid chunk of damage, but it also can give you a lot of Magecraft triggers(and you can kill a commander with it).
You could definitely cut a couple of the higher CMC cards as they'll clog up your gameplan a bit -- run a few more cantrips and interaction such as Preordain , Serum Visions , Faithless Looting , Lightning Bolt , Spell Pierce and Miscast .
Also, a couple rituals -- Rite of Flame is the best one here, but Simian Spirit Guide also works. Pyretic Ritual and Desperate Ritual are also okay, but they don't help you cast Veyran so they're last in line for those slots.

IIRC, Become immense is usually a 1-of, because its another scale up without drawback if you only have 1. I remember seeing Distortion Strike , but I'm not sure where the space in the list is.
Sideboard options worrying about budget (the heirachs are more important); Wilt , Miscast , Dissenter's Deliverance , Aether Gust , Apostle's Blessing , Mystical Dispute . I remember seeing Viridian Corrupter and the spell that makes 2 infect tokens. I saw mono green once with Blight Mamba and Rancor , and b/g with crusader and thoughtsieze.

Sorin_Markov_1947 Thanks for taking a look! I'm mostly building around Witherbloom Apprentice because it's in my favorite color combination and I enjoy the grindy, attrition-y gameplay it suggests. I don't expect it to be a power card, but I'd like to make it as solid as possible. It's a new personal favorite, that's all.
Alrund's Epiphany is completely a placeholder card until I find something better, and I'm not sure how I overlooked Professor Onyx . I've been playtesting with Grim Tutor primarily looking for Elder Gargaroth , or Murderous Rider as needed. Miscast is in because I'm predicting that the upcoming Standard will be heavy on spellslinger decks, but I'm going to sideboard/remove it as reveals continue.
The main focus is drain, and I'm going to dig hard into that when I get a chance.
