Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin Discussion

Argy on U/B Tezzeret Shenanigans

Imo your mana would be faster like this:

4x Drowned Catacomb
4x Fetid Pools
3x Field of Ruin - destroys Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin  Flip
2x Ifnir Deadlands - nerfs Gods
5x Island
6x Swamp

You only have one Glimmer of Genius in the Sideboard so Aether Hub isn't going to help a lot with colour fixing.

Ya Argy, that foil is BEAUTIFUL. Especially the Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin  Flip side. Absolutely stunning. I don't personally have it in a deck because I only play EDH decks that don't want it, which makes me sad :(

This looks like a nice use of the U/B control shell for torment. You may want to consider a couple copies of Field of Ruin. It lets you hurt your opponents utility lands while still offering you no penalty to your mana base as it will turn into a basic after use. Particularly useful for disrupting opponents that use Search for azcanta /Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin or similar cards.

Search for Azcanta is definietly awesome for control decks (due to the "may" word's inclusion)
It gives a "scry 1" on each upkeep
It puts the bad cards into the graveyard, instead of library bottom! (giving fuel for Snapcaster Mage, Logic Knot ..etc.)

And it can flip, if you worry about empty library!
The flip side (Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin) is even better - and you can have a flipped and a non-flipped version of the card on the field at the same time.

To expand on what mtghambot said, Search for azcanta and Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin are separate cards, just like Legion's Landing//Adanto, the First Fort, Arguel's Blood Fast//Temple of Aclazotz, Dowsing Dagger //Lost Vale, Thaumatic Compass//Spires of Orazca. Cards like vance's blasting cannons , Conqueror's Galleon, primal amulet , and treasure map don't even have that, as the back sides aren't even in the database ("Spitfire Bastion", "Conqueror's Foothold", "Primal Wellspring", and "Treasure Cove" respectively.) The only one that works is Growing Rites of Itlimoc . Even when I type some of these cards names correctly, it still wont link the card's picture for me, which is also true with some of the non-transforming cards in Ixalan. Any fix for this that can be done as soon as possible would be appreciated.

I think Search for Azcanta / Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin is going to be great in approach control decks, even though it's legendary i think i am going to play 3 copies because the card is gas! Ipnu Rivulet might be a 4 of in the manabase because you can target yourself to mill four cards after casting your first approach, this plus market on Farm / Market or Glimmer of Genius or an activation of Azcanta, the Sunken Ruin, or a Supreme Will can get you to your second approach in 1 turn. Something that is worth noting is if your Search for Azcanta is not yet flipped by the time you have cast your first approach and you have Ipnu Rivulet in play you can untap and with the upkeep trigger of Search for Azcanta on the stack activate Ipnu Rivulet in response targeting yourself. Then resolve triggered ability of Search for Azcanta and it then checks the graveyard and flips which might make all the difference if you don't have many cards in hand.
