Granted, I built this deck for casual, so it probably wouldn't work out too well in legacy, especially some of the "weaker" card choices like Quiet Disrepair, but I though I'd post the decklist up anyway. Perhaps you'll see some new card interactions you could apply in legacy?

As you can see, this deck is really geared against creature based decks. Wall of Reverence and Recumbent Blissserve double duty as creature control and life gain triggers. Sun Droplet soaks up early aggro damage to help us survive a little longer while we get the combo set up, but also works great with the painlands when we need some more life gain triggers. Lightning Helix doesn't really need any explaining.
Armillary Sphere keeps the lands coming since this is a mana hungry deck.
Stormbind is super secret plan B tech and works really well with Well of Lost Dreams.
With all of these lifegain triggers stacking during upkeeps/end of turns, Ajani's Pridemate can get out of hand very fast.
And finally, There's the zendikar refuge lands. Pretty nice for a land drop
The biggest problem with this deck is that it is too slow for the legacy format, and there aren't any ways to stop storm/combo. In earlier versions I tried making the deck more competitive (for the old extended format) and I used cards like glittering wish to help me out against specific matchups.
Anyway, personally I feel searing meditation is just too slow for the format, but who knows, maybe you can get it to work out. I'm really rooting for ya, as I love the card and I like your deck concept. Hopefully my deck has given you a few ideas, even if it is just a casual deck. Good luck!
EDIT: someone earlier suggested using Grove of the Burnwillows + Punishing Fire. I think if you could fit it in, it would be great for the deck, as it fills a similar role to what you're trying to do with the meditation and well, it's always good to have another way to deal repeatable damage.
