So, a couple things: 40 lands is too many for this deck, I'd go down to 38 or maybe even 37 because of the new mulligan rule. I'd also work on the balance of mana based on the colors you have in the deck, taking out some Swamps and replacing them with Islands, and maybe trying to find a few more dual lands because you don't really gave too many and having mostly basics will make it easy for you to get color screwed. Maybe a few more artifacts like a Dimir Signet , Sol Ring for obvious reasons, and Fellwar Stone , stuff like that.

It also seems like you're stuck between Faerie tribal and mill. Personally I'd go with mill, because it's probably cheaper. You can take out cards like Final-Sting Faerie , Nectar Faerie , Quickling , Thornwind Faeries , Wasp Lancer , Distant Melody , Bident of Thassa , Violet Pall , and Faerie Tauntings . You could put cards like Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Fraying Sanity , Jace, Memory Adept , Sire of Stagnation , Hedron Crab (I have one of these that you can use), Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Notion Thief , and Nemesis of Reason in order to strengthen your mill plan, and if you wanna win with tokens out of nowhere, you can put in Scion of Oona to keep your tokens safe.

I would also put in some more removal, like Murder , Cast Down , Rapid Hybridization , Go for the Throat , Hero's Downfall , or similar cards. I really like the inclusion of cards like Crypt Incursion and Startled Awake  Flip, because those are just really cool cards. This deck has potential, I think you made a really solid first draft.

To keep your theme I've suggested some improvements

Faeries

Faerie Harbinger - Tutor for the fary you need

Inspired Sprite - Extra Card draw

Mistbind Clique - Basically a one turn time warp - more if you can bounce with effects like Glen Elendra Pranksters

Nightshade Schemers - Since most of your deck is Faerie

Scion of Oona - Faerie lord - the shroud could be beneficial too

Spellstutter Sprite - Counter spell - more if you can bounce with effects like Glen Elendra Pranksters

Sprite Noble - Weaker "Faerie" Lord - most likely to cut

Sirens

Siren of the Silent Song or Raven's Crime - discard

Hypnotic Siren - on theme version of Spirit away but not dead in hand early game

Siren Stormtamer - counter spell

Banshee

Midnight Banshee - might hurt with all the blue you play but strong against many decks

Krakens

Thing in the Ice  Flip

Scourge of Fleets - Cyclonic Rift type effect for all opponents - good with repeatable bounce maybe something like Mark of Eviction, Sunken Hope, Trusted Advisor, Faerie Impostor, or Quickling

I would Remove Macabre Waltz, Fill with Fright, Send to Sleep, Wings of Velis Vel, Fear, Phyresis with Glistening Oil (repeatable infect + used as removal in pinch), Psychic Surgery, Sleep Paralysis, Waterknot (your in black use actual removal), Faerie Invaders, Oona's Gatewarden (sorry I know oona's the general but its a weak card) and Dauthi Embrace (I know you said its a win con but most of your creatures are evasive on their own)

Minor alteration you might enjoy - Horde of Notions for a general - you can't tutor out cards from play, but it lets you run any changling for , and cast them from graveyard as well.

another odd option is Reaper King for destruction of permanents

odd "lords" that might fit well -

Admiral Beckett Brass and or Captivating Vampire - Steal their stuff!

Bramblewood Paragon & the their tribal parallels - give a static bonus even after the card leaves

Death Baron - pairs well with first / double strike. kill stuff dead. good alternitive to Zombie Master

Drogskol Captain - another lord of the unreal, effectively. plus it steroids

Scion of Oona - see above, but shroud. can't target it, but has flash

Field Marshal and / or Stromkirk Captain - pairs well with deathtouch

Seshiro the Anointed - big buffs + card draw = win

Midnight Entourage - Gives a mini Phyrexian Arena effect when one dies

Myr Galvanizer - untapping is amazing. do stuff more!

Pheres-Band Warchief - because tribal centaurs are apparently a thing

Timber Protector & Crested Sunmare - because indistructable is amazing

Unnatural Selection - because more messing with stuff is more better

AEther Shockwave & Whelming Wave - lockout effects

Crux of Fate - because it is now viable in a non-dragon tribal

Goblin Chieftain - an alternitive to goblin king - not a fan of landwalk, personally. to circumstantial

I had a deck like this back in 2013 when Arcane Adaptation wasn't arround. These two were really good: Unnatural Selection Imagecrafter

Also prowl spells work with Ultimus as he is a Rogue: Notorious Throng Knowledge Exploitation

You are also missing 4 lands: Mishra's Factory Blinkmoth Nexus Elephant Graveyard Swarmyard

For bonus points I used: Sun Quan, Lord of Wu - best way is to finish them off with fish riding horses

Back from the Brink - this is the only? way to get creatures back in mono U

Artificial Evolution - you can change Swarmyard to regen Merfolks, Wizards etc.

I remember not playing with Scion of Oona as it disabled all my Regens and pumps from lands Higure, the Still Wind seems like a fun addition also

Cheers!

You have a good build with good synergy here. I just threw down some thoughts on cards that are hopefully all budget enough to consider. Most of these are super cheap on mtgo which makes that a good program to play on for brewing budget options. You are looking at up to $0.25 a card (usually much less) instead of $2

I like Glen Elendra Liege but why not drop those for two more Scion of Oona? You have no blue and black creatures and all your creatures are faeries so it seems much better. If you want more than 4 of those effects, then I would go to Glen Elendra Liege.

Have you considered Despise or Duress for other turn 1 plays? Inquisition of Kozilek is not too expensive if within budget. You do rely on throwing out creatures and swinging wide so perhaps not playing these is best.

Secluded Glen seems much better than Dismal Backwater but quite pricey. River of Tears may work well for you. Faerie Conclave may be a good option but I wouldn't play more than 2 because you do not want too many tapped lands in this build. Mutavault is a powerhouse in faeries with how it interacts with Spellstutter Sprite and in this case Thieving Sprite. However, 4 Mutavault cost more than the whole deck currently and as much as one Bitterblossom.

Your biggest fear is board wipes post sideboarding. I would recommend Spell Pierce, Negate, or Countersquall. I would also play Nihil Spellbomb in the sideboard for graveyard hate. I love Shadow of Doubt to hit fetchlands or combo decks but Squelch can be a fun budget option. Disdainful Stroke is also a very good budget counterspell.

Another upgrade path for this deck would be to focus on the go wide flying theme and splash white (perhaps use fast lands in esper colors). Key card is Pride of the Clouds while not a faerie becomes huge when you have a few faeries out. Spell Queller is also a good card that you cannot pass up if playing blue/white flyers. Selfless Spirit protects from board wipes. Adding in these cards decreases usefullness of Scion of Oona and may make sense to move back to Glen Elendra Liege
