It is interesting that Forsaken Sanctuary was mentioned as as being "just better" than Salt Flats when Concealed Courtyard, Fetid Heath, Scoured Barrens, and Shambling Vent. All exist and are strictly better than either of the two.
As I said in the other thread you need some win conditions, and not just the two mentioned earlier in this comment section. In a 100 card deck at least 10 spots should be dedicated to winning the game.
You are also running a bit light on mana sources. My oloro deck runs 45 sources and the average cmc is only slightly higher than yours. I would suggest running 8 or 9 more sources to bring the total up to 44-45.
There are some cards that you can just do a straight swap and come out ahead.
Now comes the problem of deck building philosophy and what you can do to make a deck that isn't just a good stuff deck. Counter spells in general are not great in multiplayer games. You can not match multiple opponents 1-for-1 without a huge card advantage engine so they are really only used to protect win conditions. One of your counter spells is a bit problematic for me though even if you do decide to run counters in general. What do you anticipate countering with Mental Misstep that matters beyond turn 4-5?
Prosperity is not really a good card for control. You are spending your resources on your turn in order to give everyone cards.
You do not have enough shuffle effects for Scroll Rack, Sensei's Divining Top, or brainstorm to be much use. Running the off color fetches would make them slightly better, but I am still not sure about them.
That is all I have for now, let me know if you have any specific questions about stuff that isn't going well and I will try to address them.

And when I put onto battlefield in turn zero Leyline of Sanctity, you should have a problem .
youll be dead before that :)
Snapdisastermage - That's the sound of sarcasm, if I ever heard it, (even though I Read it). I'm sure it's just a joke. But take it with a grain of Salt Flats otherwise :) It's kinda funny both as, and not as a joke. (Though the ladder more the "Ill have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals" kind of funny.")

You are definitely lacking in Mana Ramp here in this deck. If I were you I'd add a few staples like Myriad Landscape,
dual Black/Red Lands
and some white/blacks would be
I know these lands are expensive, some are over $1-$5 a pop, but the truth is that to run an efficient deck in Mardu like this, you need fewer lands, and more mana ramp, having 4 lands in your hand wont change the fact that you can only play 1 land per turn, unless you are playing and have cards out like Exploration. This isn't a bad deck, you just need to work on your mana base and research, here is a good doubler for a low price:
additionally, excellent artifacts include:
some land searches, incase you are getting scrapped for a certain colour.
Finally, here is a good resource for dual lands:
I've only added to suggestions the cards that are cheaper for you, with the exception of a few that I think are excellent staples.
