This is my first attempt at a legacy elemental tribe deck. I figure fish and goblins can to it so I want to try. This deck slightly reflects what I have for legacy cards, but most of the lands I'd have to pay for anyway. Force of Will's are out of my price range so just something to keep in mind. Thank you for every suggestion as this is my first attempt to dip into the legacy pool!!
Disrupting Shoal is a bad counterspell in legacy. Counterbalance is better because it's reusable, it doesn't make you pitch cards, and it has amazing synergy with card:Sensei's Divining Top. Other good and affordable counterspells are Counterspell and Daze . Flusterstorm seems weak because it restricts what it can counter and it doesn't flat out counter the spell, although it would be hilarious against storm combo decks, so I would suggest moving it to the sideboard in case you encounter such a deck. Eyes of the Wisent also belongs in the sideboard as it's only effective against blue control.
18 lands seems a bit low, you might want to consider adding more. If you run this many creatures, Ancient Ziggurat could fit in here. Other cards you might want to add are Swords to Plowshares and Lightning Bolt .

I figured shoal was similar enough to Force of Will that it would be a cheaper substitute. It's another reason whi I ran flusterstorm since I needed a 1 cmc for shoal. I actually do own Counterbalance so I can give it a try.
