I wanted icons for yellow and purple mana on the futuresight border but I couldn't find anything. Is it available anywhere?

You would need to make the template yourself - there's three ways to go about this:

1) The hard but "technically right" way - Create a copy of the Future Sight/Modern Extra/M15 Extra and modify it to work with the Extra/Futureshifted elements it doesn't have. While we have tutorials here your best bet is to look at how the templates in your MSE directory are constructed. This lets you share the template fully and let people use WUBRGYP.
2)The quick and dirty way - just recolor the Futureshifted frames with something like Photoshop or GIMP, and bring in Yellow/Purple mana symbols from another template, replacing two colors in the default Futureshifted template. This lets you make renders but you won't be able to share the template.
3) Middle ground - make a copy of the Futureshifted template, tweak the titles accordingly, and then do everything from 2), except on that copy. This lets you share the template even if people won't technically be able to make WUBRG cards with it.

I reccomend choosing alternative 1), and make your own template. Especially if you are planning on using it a lot in the future, as well as sharing your sets with others. At first, I also used the Extra Colors template to add my own color, but I'm planing to make a separate template for it, so that I can call it my own, and not leach of the one that made the original.
Also, making a template isn't that difficult, since you already have finished templates you can compare to and learn from.
