    So I'm pretty sure that you meant doesn't untap during its controller's NEXT untap step. I don't think this is strong enough. It is 2 for an instant that sleeps a creature with 2 more to psudo replicate. I guess you can also save the artifacts for later but this doesn't seem super white. Maybe have it convoke for the tokens instead?

    Not quite sure what is intended by this prompt but here I go.

    I was going to say that it's weird for her to trigger her own ability when she flips face-up, but you are kind of paying more mana to play her that way, so I guess it works out. It is the the right colors for secret plans, and unlike Secret Plans it can be your commander if that's your jam. I like it!

    I've never seen Community, so I couldn't tell you how accurate this is to the source material. That being said, I like the mechanic; it gives a lot of choices and still manages to be self-righting, which is terrific from a gameplay perspective. Well done.

    This is interesting, i don't know if its intentional but if you deal lethal damage to it the ent dies as it still has lethal dmg and ticks all the way down, that makes it's power level a little weak. I think if you said when ~ dies regenerate it and put a -1/-1 counter on it, that would work better.

    This is really strong. Tap this on the turn it comes down, then tap it again on your next turn before your draw step, and it's BB, pay 1 life: Draw two cards, which is high value enough. Being able to pay a minor life cost after that, or just being able to sacrifice a few tokens, makes this probably too strong as a card advantage creator.

    Edgar's charge is a bit weird. I guess you felt that is should be red for rummaging, black for discard interaction, and white for the charge effect, which seems reasonable. The charging part, despite it being the name of the card, is the thing it's least likely to actually do at any given time. What is Edgar doing that's represented by the drawing and discarding? What about it enables all the charging?

    So... That is really strong in a ramp deck. On its own, you can tap it for two mana per turn (which isn't bad), but if you can back it up with other druids, you can build up obscene mana advantage absurdly quickly. The fact that it costs three mana to play barely offsets this (if you're playing a ramp deck, three mana is a trivial cost), so the only real limiting factor is how many other mana-producing druids you can pump out in your first few turns. After that, it's pretty much game. I could see this working a lot better if it could, say, untap druids in exchange for some other cost (life, being tapped itself, having to summon a creature or cast a spell, et cetera), but rewarding mana with more mana is just a bit too cheeky.

    I think this might be a touch strong for a common in draft, otherwise its a virtual 3/4 defender which is a little stronger than other cmc 3 defenders that have been printed. I would say give it a slight nerf/downside like sac on target to make it fair.

    I was going to cry foul for a second, but then I realized that this was an enchantment and not a land. This leads me to wonder why it taps for mana, since its other abilities are surely interesting enough to make a card on their own. It's quite good at what it does, too. With a little foresight, you can effectively counter at least one attempt to remove something every turn, twisting the law to suit your purposes at the time. If it turns out to be too strong, it might just be a matter of changing it so that it can't protect itself like it currently can.

    Nice and clean and an interesting use of crew. It feels like it might not be the best way to word it but I can't really think of a clear and concise way. Does feel weird if you give it vigilance somehow and you actually want it to crew itself but that's neither here nor there.

    Power isn't as relevant as an un-card but it's still very cheap mana fixing and the last ability has the potential to actually be pretty powerful if you have protection from a colour on a creature. I guess it's good to have some more cheap mana fixing in that colour. It's not easy being green

    @BoP: Do you mean a free counterspells being the most common on r/custommagic or that specific design. I know it's not a good design given it tries to be confusing deliberately but it feels less egregious than a lot of free counterspells because you need 3feri or leyline of anticipation to be able to play it and that supports holding mana open until your opponents end step a fair bit anyway.

    So, there is a mechanic on three cards in Apocalypse that does what this card is trying to do, and for some reason they never printed anything else like it save for one goofy playtest card in Mystery Boosters. I love the ability, but I can only assume it's considered too confusing in practice and feels bad when your opponent is left with unusable combat tricks in hand.

    This seems pretty fun; obviously you can build around it with a historic deck of your own, but you could also use this against artifact decks, and it's sure to get a few hits in Commander. Its floor is really low, so it's not the most powerful card, but it has a lot of potential.

    The zero is a +1, i feel like this breaks the spirit of the prompt. Its a 2 mana walker which is dangerous, except this card doesn't do anything without another walker so its fine I guess.

    Respark seems like the perfect name for the basic planeswalker-resurrection card. We'll just have to see if they ever actually implement it. I'm not sure why it hasn't been printed yet. Spark Sliver is a little funky. A board is likely to have more planeswalkers than creatures in constructed these days, but requiring one and spending its ability for the turn is still a pretty big ask. If you're introducing Sliver as a planeswalker type, why not just make a Sliver planeswalker?

    This is a very powerful effect on a 1 mana 1/1 potentially. I think it would be fairer if it targeted a single sheep.

    I'm mostly trying to figure out what this ostensibly horrible but practically very loyal and sweet friend is for. "W, T: Target creature is indestructible until end of turn," is pretty powerful on its own. The best situation I can think of for it would be Lorwyn, where you would exchange the horror typing and most of its text for the Changeling ability and everything it does would fit together thematically. My other thought would be in Innistrad or Ikoria, where everything is horror and creature types only sometimes matter, but then such a shapeshifter would be better off specifying a creature type to associate with - probably Human or Vampire.

    This is pretty simple and clean. It's not too impressive when you first cast it, but after that, it swiftly ramps up. This would probably be pretty strong in limited, assuming there's enough snow support, of course.

    Cannot say I'm too familiar with mill *****, but it seems like a good one to punish some G/B decks and some blue decks, or if you can activate the mill option as another way to damage decks.

    So, I imagine you already know my first thought: Why not make an undying counter for the first ability? Sure, there isn't one in Ikoria, but they can be added to a set as easily as tokens at this point. That said, combining it with the other three abilities adds up to too much text for one card, and the plays the abilities encourage don't play well with its three-color mana cost nor indeed with one another. Sure, the abilities are cool, but any given deck will only be able to use half of them anyway, so why not break it up into two cards?

    This works pretty well in White-based aggro decks. Sometimes it'll save a creature, but it'll probably see more play as a Savannah Lions with Flash, which is perfectly serviceable.

    Eh, seems okay. Not much of a chassis, and its ability is pretty situational, so I don't see it getting out of hand... But it's still a strict upgrade from some other cards already in circulation, so it may be an auto-inclusion anyway.

    Challenge! Do something similar, but for a different color.

    I think that repeated bouncing of your own creatures is somewhat dangerous and could create loops that are too powerful. The second ability also seems to me a little roughly written. I think it would be fairer if it said T: untap target creature and put a -1/-1 counter on it. But that effect isnt really white.
