Dowsing Dagger needs a flip of Lost Vale  Flip. http://tappedout.net/mtg-card/dowsing-dagger/

Hey, really interesting a ramp deck with no actual ramp other than Dagger into Lost Vale  Flip which is very conditional. I don't think only 8x creatures who can hold 12x equipment/auras is enough. You risk only drawing equipment/Sense and no creatures to use them with. Consider more creatures such as Glint-Nest Crane. It's a flier who can potentially find Dagger or Blade.

U can use Siren Stormtamer with Dowsing Dagger to get your mana ramp. You can also use unblockable creatures like Slither Blade to transform it to Lost Vale.

I like the idea, but I see three main problems.

  1. You don't have enough evasive creatures to help you flip Dowsing Dagger  Flip easily.

  2. You don't have any place to put the mana from Lost Vale  Flip.

  3. 22 lands is going to lead to stumbles in the early game.

The obvious solution to the first issue is to go up to the full 4 copies of Kitesail Freebooter. I'd also recommend running Siren Stormtamer. It's cheap, evasive, and the ability can be useful to protect your Ferocidons and Freebooters.

For the second issue, I'd recommend running at least 3 copies of Cut / Ribbons. The deck could stand to have a bit more removal anyway and ripping a big Ribbons later one could be a great way to close games out. It would drastically reduce your fizzle rate, too, since it's a lot harder to race a couple of bigger Lava Axes from the graveyard than pings.

For the third, 24 lands should ensure that you can get to your Panharmonicons at a decent rate. You could go with a light Desert package (a few copies of Ifnir Deadlands and Ramunap Ruins) to help ensure you don't flood out.

I'm not sure what to cut, though; that's the rub.

I Agree on the Field of Ruin, yet I would play more than one, because Ixalan's literally filled with non-basic lands. You will want to get rid of Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun  Flip or Lost Vale  Flip ASAP, since they can be game determining.

Also I do not really see the value of Kefnet the Mindful in here, since you most likely never have 7 or more cards in your hand (low curve, cheap spells). Thus he is not very useful and using kefnet only for the card draw is too expensive. (even an Overflowing Insight is more mana efficient. I would run a fourth copy of Hostage Taker and maybe one to two River's Rebuke to seal your games. It is a solid win condition.

If you need more card draw besides Opt and Chart A Course, maybe Pirate's Prize is a viable option.

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 am confused to as why you have Lost Vale. You're not running any creatures except for Gideon and the dinos from Huatli, so it would be a little difficult to flip the Dowsing Dagger.

Ashes of the Abhorrent is very much a sideboard card, as half of it is useless if your opponents aren't running anything that runs off of graveyards, or if they are more of a control deck and barely running creatures at all (like this deck.)
