Portent

Sorcery

Look at the top three cards of target player's library, then put them back in any order. You may have that player shuffle his or her library.

Draw a card at the beginning of the next turn's upkeep.

May I suggest Ray of Revelation in place of Seal of Primordium? I really like this deck, and mill I think is a very interesting strategy. I'd like to see some more ways to look at the top cards of your opponent's library, so you know when to mill effectively. Example: Spy Network, Dewdrop Spy, and Portent. These are of course not necessary, but if you want to eventually run more milling spells then these would be very efficient at telling you when to use your mill spells to get certain things in the graveyard.

On the contrary, miracles is actually still among the most played decks in legacy, but it's no longer a lock deck. It still plays Terminus, but instead of top to set it up, it uses Portent and its other cantrips.

4c control, also called Czech Pile, is super strong in legacy right now. Honestly, legacy isn't in as good of a spot as it was before the top banning in my opinion, but I think it's more due to Leovold and True-Name Nemesis rather than the banning of top. Expect to see a banning of one of those cards or Deathrite Shaman in the next year.

Absolutely surprised Distortion Strike isn't here.

Briar Shield, Defiant Strike, Hunger of the Howlpack, Prey's Vengeance, Seal of Strength, and Unstable Mutation are all good pump contenders.

Portent is an often-forgotten cheap cantrip effect that's sweet in Pauper.

Auramancer/Monk Idealist may not have infect, but enchantment recursion is sweet.

@Cragon18: Oh I definitely think U/W Control gets a lot better, I just don't know if we'll see something with Counterbalance and/or miracle spells. We already have Telling Time and Serum Visions, so I'm not sure a another 4-drop competing with Cryptic Command will do the trick. I could be wrong, I'm sure, but Legacy is even having issues setting up Counterbalance despite having Ponder, Preordain, Brainstorm, and Portent.

Jace, the Mind Sculptor's +0 doesn't do well with Ensnaring Bridge. However, I was thinking his +2 and -1 help lock everything down even further for Lantern.

@WizardOfTheNorthernCoast: ...and Bloodbraid Elf into Tarmogoyf mwahahahahaa!

I really want to play a RUG deck with Bloodbraid Elf into Kari Zev's Expertise into Ancestral Vision.

Also, this never gets old lol:

Thanks for your advice Austin_Smith_of_Cards, I'm going to try out these changes:

4x Drowned -> 4x Restless Dead

1x Bone Picker -> 1x Skeletal Wurm

1x Gorgon Flail -> 1x Skeletal Wurm

1x Island -> 1x Portent

Skeletal Vampire looks fun and cheap, I might spring for one.

I thought the same thing when I pulled Portent out of my jank box, had never seen this card before, but it seems like a pretty solid stand-in for Ponder. I've found a couple more (total of 3), but not sure what else to cut if anything.
