Cosi's Trickster, Deepchannel Mentor because most of your creatures are blue.Sage of Fables, Streambed Aquitects, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Wanderwine Prophets and Chord of Calling it is great for tapping out all your creatures and making wake thrasher huge. just some thoughts.

Have you thought about Thada Adel, Acquisitor? She grabs a ton of mana rocks from opponents, and it seems like your curve could use this kind of effect. When not stealing rocks, she can take whatever else seems useful. She is a possibility for my Keep Your Friends Close But Your Enemies Closer deck, but I have not yet tested to see where things stand with it yet, so testing will potentially show if she would help.

Cephalid Constable is just mean with unblockable (and pump effects like cage the sun / gauntlet of power, etc)

Thada Adel, Acquisitor or Sphinx Ambassador use your opponent's deck against themselves

Deepfathom Skulker as another Coastal Piracy or Bident of Thassa effect

epajula that's a pretty weird rule as it actually ruins the consistency of every deck to the point of pure randomness. If you don't know for sure if you can even find a legal target for something as simple as a fetchland, you can't really risk playing that card at all. Everyone who got their fetchland Stifle d at least once can tell that a wasted fetch is the worst that can happen if you counted on it.

I agree that people who search a library for too long are annoying, but only if the situation doesn't warrant taking a bit more time. For example if someone is trying to get an Intuition pile with a deck that they haven't played for a long time yet, it's understandable that it takes some calculations and thinking. If someone plays the same deck every week and still can't find his preferred targets for a Tooth and Nail it's a reason for avoiding games with that person.

When searching an opponents library you should also know what kind of card you are looking for and you should think about what you can possibly find when targeting a certain player. If that library has very unexpected contents (for example last week someone wanted to get a Mana Crypt from another player with Thada Adel, Acquisitor only to find out there wasn't a single 0 mana artifact in that library...which is indeed unexpected) it's also understandable that you might look through the pile a second time, but it still shouldn't take ages.

I was bouncing ideas for a Thada Adel, Acquisitor list off of a friend and at one point they mentioned that this seems like a mean deck. His big problem was the searching of opponent's libraries for artifacts, but not necessarily the deck as a whole (ie. Control Magic is fine, Bribery is not). I agreed with him on that point, but I went and asked another friend and they said a deck based around stealing cards from others isn't "nice" at all. I feel like I'm a little too lenient on how nice a deck needs to be (my Grenzo deck has both Ruination and Blood Moon) and I don't see the big deal with them. What is your reaction if someone comes to the table and flips over Thada Adel, Acquisitor or Empress Galina as their commander?

Update: I made it a Yasova Dragonclaw deck, here's the link: Five Talon Discount.

Also, when I asked what your opinions on Thada Adel, I didn't mean for it to become a heated debate about tutors :)

I base my 'steal your stuff' deck around Rubinia, but some of the cards could overlap. You might want to look at Beguiler of Wills, Callous Oppressor, Roil Elemental, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Dominus of Fealty, It That Betrays or Willbreaker. I see that Treachery and Bribery are notably missing from your spells. Finally, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge is in color and steals opponent's spells.

A card's color is normally determined by it's casting cost. Any black symbol in the casting cost, such as in Olivia, Mobilized for War's cost (she's black-red), will normally make a card black. If a card has a color indicator located left of the type line, like Ormendahl, Profane Prince  Flip, it uses that to determine color instead (he's black). If a card has an ability that redefines it's color, like Bearer of Silence, it uses that to determine color (it's colorless). If an ability of a spell or permanent redefines color, like Rise from the Grave or Darkest Hour, that color is used instead of or in addition to the color(s) of the card. Rise from the Grave would make Thada Adel, Acquisitor blue-black, Darkest Hour would make all creatures on both sides of the field just black.
