is the deck i'm currently fine tuning.

Is it strictly better the have 4xSunken Ruins over 4xDrowned Catacomb, or would 2 of each be better? Thoughts on all land combinations please!

Running too many filter lands is generally a bad idea because they interact pretty poorly with each other; if you have an opening hand where your only lands are Sunken Ruins, you won't be able to produce any coloured mana.

Since this is legacy they really should be Underground Sea, but if this is for a budget reason then I would go one filter land and three Drowned Catacomb.

Darkslick Shores is also very good

Underground Sea is certainly out of range... Watery Grave is taking its place... I think 3x Drowned Catacomb 1xDarkslick Shores and 1xSunken Ruins will do me well.

What about playing more fetchlands (even though they're off-color) and adding Daze over Mana Leak?

If you're not using Daze, then Counterspell is going to be stronger. In that case, I'd go with Darkslick Shores or Underground River. Drowned Catacomb isn't bad, but you really don't want to spend your first 2 turns playing Dimir Guildgates because you got stuck with double Drowned Catacomb.

The only reason I started with Mana Leak is to be a buffer for my mana base is easier to cast than especially when I already need to worry about it for Muddle the Mixture, Hunted Horror and Hunted Phantasm
