If you're building with the goal of making the game last a few extra turns, then Arena's great. But you need to be building around having more upkeeps than you otherwise would have.
It's sort of like Night's Whisper is a Swamp while Arena is Tainted Isle. You're automatically considering one, while the other is plausible but easily cuttable.

Just updated my wants on my Binder. Take a look and see if we can make a trade!
And I'm also always looking for good lands, so if you have any pain/filter/Bond/fetchlands that aren't on my list, feel free to include it.
In the spirit of giving, I'll throw in a fun random card or token with any trade, too. :)

Anyone claiming Spell Pierce is bad is insane. It's an amazing card in any playgroup that is tuned in any way. is a pretty big tax. However, it's not good as generic countermagic -- it's for crushing combos or protecting your combo.
If your playgroup isn't tuned to any degree, doesn't run many combos at all, and you're not using a combo wincon, replace Spell Pierce. If you're playing anything other than low power hyper casual commander, keep Spell Pierce and add more countermagic. Every blue deck should include Negate, Counterspell, Dispel.
Second, you have 14 taplands. This is horrible. I don't care what meta you're in, fix that. I'll give you some tips: River of Tears, Nimbus Maze, and Caves of Koilos are all really cheap and will make your manabase a lot better. Cut a handful of taplands for more basics -- they're great and in budget manabases they are necessary for making your deck work. Glacial Fortress, Isolated Chapel, Drowned Catacomb aren't too pricey and will make your manabase MUCH better. Tainted Field and Tainted Isle are pretty cheap.

Taking a second look at your manabase, this is not a competitive deck at all. Maybe your nonland cards are good, but you need to fix your manabase. Kabira Crossroads is one of the worst monocolored lands I've ever seen, especially in a format with 40 life and a deck full of lifelink creatures. Memorial to Folly and Tresserhorn Sinks also suck, and Tainted Isle isn't even in the Mardu color identity. If you're going to label a deck as competitive, please make sure it is a competitive deck.

Hey there! Maybe consider some of the following lands!
Less than $10:
- Sunken Ruins
- Underground River
- Choked Estuary
- Drowned Catacomb
- Waterveil Cavern
- Rootwater Depths
- Tainted Isle
- Exotic Orchard
- Darkwater Catacombs
- Bad River

also I would do some small mana fixing that is cheap like:

I'd say your biggest thing is getting better mana base even if the etb tapped, there are some lands in the $5 range that can enter untapped as well like Sunken Hollow, Tainted Isle, and Choked Estuary!
