Alright, Iona, Shield of Emeria has been banned. :( I did get her out with a hard cast, just once and prevented all my opponents from casting spells, they all folded immediately... I changed about 13 cards out in the deck, removing Dreadbore , Flooded Strand , Hoard-Smelter Dragon , Iona, Mortuary Mire , Overmaster , Reaper from the Abyss , Seething Song , Wind-Scarred Crag . I put in, Reconnaissance , Hellkite Charger , Archfiend of Despair , Blood Crypt , Godless Shrine , Sunbaked Canyon , Winds of Abandon , Bolas's Citadel , Talisman of Indulgence , and Thaumatic Compass  Flip... In process of swapping 3 more cards for Kaalia, Zenith Seeker , Erebos, God of the Dead , as well as Pyroblast

List looks solid. Sideboard looks decent. I think the way to do the sideboard is to see what your local meta looks like, then adjust the sideboard to beat those decks.

The one other thing I think would be really helpful is 4 more fetchlands and 4 fewer Plains. You definitely want 4 Flooded Strand because it can fetch island and plains. Prismatic Vista is a good 1-of or 2-of. It can't fetch hallowed fountain, but it can fetch both island and plains.

Good luck if you build this and play it! Legacy is super fun.

If you want more suggestions (which is a good idea) try posting it in the legacy deck help forum.

But even the Future Sight version's text says "that player searches the top four cards of their library instead". The reason why that is that there is no other way in MTG (currently) to do that effect. For example, other options would include looking at the top 4 and revealing the top 4, neither of which are the same as searching.

Searching is a specific term that requires you to specify what you are looking for in a hidden zone. If it is a specific card type, e.g. Flooded Strand , you also have to reveal the card to prove you found an eligible one, compared to Demonic Tutor , where you do not. Additionally, searching is optional - you always have the choice to fail to find, even intentionally.

By keeping the "searching" part of the rules on Mindcensor, the card does not clash with other existing rules and does not interact in a confusing way with the cards for which its replacement ability is meant.

Thanks for the suggestion Sarkhan420X, it is a budget deck though. And thanks to you too kamarupa for defending the wallets of poor people everywhere ;P. For future reference and to those who are curious, here's how I'd upgrade the lands:

4 Flooded Strand

4 Seachrome Coast

2 Waterlogged Grove / Fiery Islet

opt. 1 Faerie Conclave

2 Hallowed Fountain

3 Island

2 Plains

(If going up to 20 lands I'd add 2 Polluted Delta or some other fetchland)

My sugestions are to:

Cut the Non-Ashiok Pwks. They are two slow.

Cut All of your creatures.

Cut Mind Sculpt and Compelling Argument

Cut your Enchantments.

Cut Your Instants.

Cut 1 land.

This gives you 27 free slots.

To fill them up:

Add:

4x Hedron Crab ,

1x Glimpse the Unthinkable ,

4x Visions of Beyond ,

4x Archive Trap ,

2x Crypt Incursion ,

2x Surgical Extraction ,

2x Mission Briefing ,

3x Fatal Push ,

3x Ensnaring Bridge ,

2x Mesmeric Orb .

The lands can be upgraded as follows:

Keep 3 Island s and 2 Swamp s, cut everything else. This gives you 19 lands to work with.

You can add 1x Bloodstained Mire ,

2x Darkslick Shores ,

3x Field of Ruin ,

2x Flooded Strand ,

1x Oboro, Palace in the Clouds ,

4x Polluted Delta ,

2x Shelldock Isle ,

and 2x Watery Grave .

If you want cheaper upgrades, ask me for some budget replacements :)

Another good thing to do to upgrade you decks is to look at similar decks without buget restrictions so you can see what sort of cards the decks play.
