River of Tears might be worth taking a look at. Helps with those Turn 1 seizes while opening up to add on subsequent turns for faeries/counter type spells.

EDIT: Took out 1 mutavult and 1 Riptide Laboratory for two River of Tears in response to ThatStoryTeller. I had been thinking that too. In particular I wanted more black sources turn one.

Sarcastically says: "There's no boats in some of those lands, how dare this boat deck not have boats in its lands".

Jokes aside, I have done a non extensive search for boat inclusive lands.

To note, while Innistrad #260 / Avacyn Restored #240 Mountains don't have boats, they do have lakes and lighthouses, and those fill out nicely with the other Adam Paquette ISD/AVR land cycle.

Painlands are perfectly viable budget lands. Besides fetches and shocks that you mentioned (that are generally pretty essential for a 3 or 4 color deck), some good UB land alternatives you can look into are River of Tears and Darkslick Shores off the top of my head. You could also try Clearwater Pathway  Flip, Sunken Ruins , or even Sunken Hollow since you have a lot of basics. I understand the need for budget, but with the mana requirements in this deck, the mana base will probably be very rough until you upgrade to fetches and shocks.

Your mana doesn't work for Counterspell . I'd include 4x Shivan Reef (cut 3 mountain 1 island). I'd also cut 3 swamp 1 island for 4 River of Tears . Obviously there's better lands, but I'm suggesting based on a low budget.

I'm assuming since you're playing casual, you can afford the taplands in Crumbling Necropolis . If your friends are running taplands as well, they're the absolute best thing in that slot.

Beyond that, Interplanar Beacon is . . . fine. I wouldn't run it in 3 color, honestly.

Also, Sarkhan the Masterless is the single best win con for a superfriends list. Actually, I used it alongside Elspeth, Sun's Champion in a deck as a one of to tutor with Fae of Wishes . I did have a few walkers, but that was mostly because it was a Oath of Nissa Narset, Parter of Veils deck.

You do still take the damage, but your life total doesn’t change. That’s actually why I’m using City of Brass instead of Mana Confluence even though Mana Confluence is better with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . Platinum Emperion doesn’t let me pay life. I also had to pull out some lands like River of Tears and Sunken Ruins so I could cut back on the fetch / shock.
