I've always been amazed by how little play Tsabo's Web sees. It's always felt to me like an amazing sideboard card, especially with the increased play that D&T has been seeing.Posted in: Legacy (Type 1.5)

So we managed to get a kid at the local shop into legacy recently.Posted in: Budget (Legacy)
It started with a bunch of conspiracy Brainstorms, so we needed to find him a budget legacy deck that was also a Brainstorm deck (not easy). We settled on High Tide, but since then I've been struggling to cobble together a reasonably powerful and balanced High Tide list.
Here's where I am now:
It's eschewing Cunning Wish for now on budget reasons (not because they specifically are expensive, but rather because it's easy to nickle and dime this into a serious undertaking for younger players if you add too many $5 cards), but they probably make sense once the deck is complete.
Misdirection is a budget Force of Will (vs countermagic and discard), now that the conspiracy version is in freefall.
The deck seems a bit more explosive than normal tide, but obviously a bit more fragile.
Swan Song seems quite good for budget, especially when you consider how it synergizes with the Snap half of the engine.
All in all, the entire deck is cards in the $2 or lower range except for Time Spiral (fairly essential, but doable as the single card over $10), Misdirection (now as low as $6 or $8 from Conspiracy), and the singletons of Meditate ($5 singleton is pretty reasonable) and Stroke of Genius (which was donated gratis anyway).
Are there any glaring weaknesses or changes that should be made (while still keeping it budget)?

Yeah, when you're able to utilize the full 7, it's truly insane. The extra interaction with Sunder and Tomorrow (if you run them) is just icing on the cake.
In what ways does your list differ?

It hits naya enchantress quite hard due to dodging all of the protection used to defend their board lock.Posted in: Legacy (Type 1.5)
The issue with judgement is that you either need a flat power level where your cards functionally interchangeable, or you need to be blue to beat it as a "fair" deck. Blue beats it on the stack and the other beats it by having no lynchpin.
But this means that the biggest impact of judgement is that it screws with the fringe decks that enriched the format, thus narrowing one of the best parts of legacy (the diversity)
