Keeping in mind that this is a casual budget deck, I think there are still a couple of utility lands you could use in place of a few of your basics that you might find useful, and they aren't too expensive.

Rogue's Passage would act as an extra combo piece with Phage the Untouchable

Blighted Woodland would let you grab two basics from your deck and put them on to the battlefield tapped for . Myriad Landscape is similar but needs to grab two of the same basic land.

I notice you have some land destruction in there: Ghost Quarter can be used to take out a a different utility land from another player. Field of Ruin is similar, but targets nonbasics specifically - ditto for Tectonic Edge and Encroaching Wastes

Ice Floe can keep any one creature without flying that might otherwise pose as a problem.

Barren Moor, Tranquil Thicket, Desert of the Indomitable, Desert of the Glorified, Drifting Meadow and Polluted Mire are also some other land options. They're slow since they enter the battlefield tapped, but you can cycle them if you don't need the mana at that time. Ash Barrens might also be interesting.

A number of the suggestions are from this list; others are anything I could think of at the time that could be helpful while being inexpensive.

I would try dropping the 2x Bloodfell Caves in favor of another each of Scoured Barrens and Wind-Scarred Crag . With 50% of your deck being white, you always want or something else. Also, consider losing a Swamp and a mountain in favor of either 2x Secluded Steppe 1x Polluted Mire and 1x Smoldering Crater , because I also think you need some draw.

I feel like a full playset of Impact Tremors should be in this deck, maybe by going down to 3-of on some of your other enchantments. Either that or Hissing Iguanar ... or replace Bogardan Dragonheart and use them both! Which is what I would do. But I love Impact Tremors too much so....

Apostle's Blessing should be in your sideboard, btw.

I know it's not an enchantment, but also consider squeezing in some Altar's Reap s somewhere, because draw.

I agree with jordanalessi effects like Wanderer's Twig and Traveler's Amulet are great turn one plays that will let you keep up on land drops and stop you from flooding. I also love Ashes to Ashes , it's such efficient removal for budget decks

However, Barren Moor and Polluted Mire are good lands but if the budget can't fit them, they're definitely not worth slotting out non lands. Ghoulcaller's Bell is a must have for sure though.

Ah, I forgot that Mark keeps it until the end of turn. Makes sense. As for Twig, if thinning is the only reason you're running it, you should definitely be running a basic Swamp, instead. You only decrease the chance you draw a land by about 2%, so the downside of that costing 2 when you'd like an untapped land is a greater consideration. Barren Moor , and even Polluted Mire are a better way to add half a land to your deck, as well.

I really like about 38 - 42 lands in commander. I would play Barren Moor and Secluded Steppe rather than Drifting Meadow and Polluted Mire. Other than that, I play Sunbond in addition to Cradle of Vitality
