i think the rules change kinda killed the thread...
legends either tend to already see modern/legacy play and have decks built around them .. like Griselbrand/Melira, Sylvok Outcast or arnt exactly interesting to build around/limited to commander (where massive commander databases like EDHREC give you a solid intro and the common builds)
but in the spirit of the thread, and getting to choose a /sigh/ legend for someone else to build around ... Darigaaz Dislikes
and for the next legend ...Gleemax ... er wait why did i say that??

the part of the 2-card "combo" that people forget is Mikaeus, the Unhallowed doesnt just give undying to non-humans ... but also +1/+1
meaning a ballista cast for x=0 is a 1/1 (or a 2/2 coming back from undying)
my personal remedy to fix the combo is Heartless Summoning which allows you to cast/combo off on turn 4 without acceleration.

not really .. i mean you can try to force it with cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Past in Flames and cheap blue cantrips ... but even with rituals, blue and or just mana quickly becomes an issue for storming in non-mizzex/Yidris decks
Arjun, the Shifting Flame decks have the advantage of Mindmoiling everytime they cast a spell and can use Psychosis Crawler, Sphinx's Tutelage and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind to ping opponents lifetotals/decks multiple times a spell even if the storm fizzles.
that being said, The Locust God shines at drawing cards, and going wide with an army of hasty fliers ...Kindred Discovery on insect is a good start and has exponential growth with Alhammarret's Archive (draw 2 cards, make 2 locust, draw 4 cards, make 4 locust .. etc, just becareful as the loop is mantatory .. so Laboratory Maniac or a way to kill people before you lose is important before you start)
and cards mentioned in the above sections combined with Chasm Skulker, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Frantic Search, Whirlpool Warrior, Brainstorm, Rhystic Study, Whirlpool Rider and other cheap "wheels" may help you get value even if your storm doesnt quite get there.

if its just 5 color good stuff, then a gold-yellow sleeve is an easy starting point, and dragon shield is a common choice for sleeves (matte/glossy)
otherwise if your trying to fit the "theme" of the deck, what is the deck trying to do? what cards did you build around?
for my treefolk tribal deck i use a bark/copper colored sleeve. Ive seen burn decks with ultra pro Sriracha sleeves, mill decks using legion's Raven.
