So Index allows me to setup my next draw for the best card I need next turn, or even better, Use Ponder to draw the card that I need on that turn. But I probably should throw in some more shuffle effects.

Ponder is banned in modern dude, and Wash Out is in an illegal format for modern.

Wash Out is not in any modern set, and Ponder is actually banned in modern.

But Serum Visions is dece, and though Wash Out doesn't have a true replacement, the card is kinda bad in the format anyways, so I'm sure you can find something better :)

Alternitively, you could just call this causal, perhaps.

Stoneblade (more specifically deathblade) is my favorite deck in magic. I've been picking up pieces for it for awhile now, but I'm a college student and I've seen too many posts about people selling collections to pay bills that I don't want to invest in anything like duals or force of wills. I'm totally down for trading for them over a long period of time, but I don't want to buy them.

That said, I still want to participate in weekly LGS legacy tournaments if I can. I have no intentions of winning much, but I would like to take a few games a night. Oh yeah, and I'm super stubborn and insisting on playing a deck with Stoneforge Mystic and probably a blue deck at that, since I own Snapcaster Mage and fetches already. I can spend a little bit acquiring pieces to complete a list, but nothing like forces, duals, jace, and preferably not true-name namesis, though trading for one of those or a Karakas is a possibility, though unlikely.

Here's my current attempt at a decklist. Any advice for the deck would be much appreciated. The idea is Misdirection instead of Force of Will and a lot of awful fetching. I expect to fold to eldrazi and probably burn, but win vs death and taxes and give delver a run for their money. No jace makes beating BUG pretty tough, but not impossible.

I don't think Ponder and Preordain are modern

Brainstorm,Preordain,Ponder Frantic Searchand Serum Visions are some great draw spells Electrolyze can kill cratures and draw you a card and Slip Through Space can give your creatures unblockable.

If you are at the Kitchen Table, you can do way better than that.

For cards that search, run Brainstorm, Ponder and Preordain. If you feel like it, Mystical Tutor and Dig Through Time are both amazing, just a bit more pricey.

Your card draw also can be way better. Treasure Cruise is the hallmark for awesome card draw, while also being really really cheap. Concentrate is also an acceptable answer.

The only tutors for your said combos are Mystical Tutor, as mentioned before, but Trinket Mage can also help you find any zero mana artifact.

Hope some of that helps!

Brainstorm, Ponder, and Preordain help you get not only cards in hand, but the cards you want into your hand.
