    Lotus Viper Pit
    Land M
    Lotus Viper Pit enters the battlefield tapped and exerted.
    T:C
    Whenever another nontoken land enters the battlefield under your control, create a land token named "Lotus Cobra Infestation" with "T: Add one mana of any color"

    No. Just no. This is obscenely overpowered. Playing this turn 1 you miss a one drop but you get back to parity on turn 2, with mana fixing, or even ahead if you use a fetchland. This would still be broken if it could never tap for mana or even if the ability was single use. If it was single use and could never tap for mana, it's still probably stronger than recent rainbow options like rupture spire.

    Nice and simple but it works. Works nicely as tapping for anything your basics produce with the extra effect in team matches. Good that you excludes non basics given thing like the bouncelands and lotus vale. You could get tricky by enchanting a basic land for some extra value but I doubt it'd overpower it.

    Creature - Elemental Peasant R
    At the beginning of your upkeep you may have a land you control become a 0/0 creature in addition to its other types put 2 +1/+1 counters on it. If that land has an activated ability that grants it keywords it gains those keywords.

    3/2
    "I've raised that ravine since it was just a little stream, didn't used to have such a temper."

    I think you need to change how it's written so that it works. The upkeep should specify non-creature land otherwise pumping a land by 2 each upkeep seems too good, especially when the tap is meant to give it evasion. The tap should read something like (if I'm interpreting it right) "Target land creature is not a creature until end of turn"

    I don't know - you always need to be careful with land leaving the battlefield triggers because it's generally easier to trigger than you'd think with breaking the flow of a deck. Even if it triggers a couple of times, should be okay if powerful here and the last ability gives the card a use if you draw it later in the game.

    All the worlds a stage. I guess you'd want to run this in a flash deck given you want to hold mana open for this ability as well and you get an extra turn of value out of each land. It feels like it might be very complicated to play.

    Each land you control with a road counter on it has "T: Add one mana of any color that another land you control with a road counter on it can produce".
    2/2

    I like the flavour of linking the lands together with the roads and the mana fixing is fine as an effect but how it reads feels a bit clunky. Might read better if it was just something like "Lands with road counters can tap for one mana of any colour your lands could produce". Not sure it needs the extra cost on the triggered ability either.

    I'll continue my archetype cycle. Create a noncreature spell for aggro decks.

    Aggro decks try to end the game using mana-efficient recurring damage sources, usually creatures. The card doesn't need to be exclusive to aggro decks, but it should be much more useful in aggro than in other archetypes. Bonus points for fitting into a wide variety of aggro decks.

    In an absolute vacuum, an anthem with an attached body is fine. However, this design is very restrictive about what else you have in your deck, since curving it out into a 3/3 for 3 is counterproductive.

    I think what kills the design a general aggro card is how bad this is in multiples in exchange for how much it warps the deck; once you have one out, your second might as well be a double-price Eager Cadet. It survives in token-only decks.

    The price is right for an aggro deck looking to protect its tempo lead; indeed, this is somewhat better than the going rate for the effect (compare Sheltering Light and Oblivion's Hunger). I don't think there's a way to balance both the large tempo gain and the +1 card advantage.

    Recosted, it strongly discourages blocking in the aggro mirror against blocking, as the attacker has all mana up and the defender doesn't.

    This time, the flying counter makes sense for the Overload. The main mode's fair for Limited, weak for Constructed but the option's nice. The overload on the other hand...

    The surprise factor of an instant-speed flying armada is too much at common. With several available at any given draft table, it'd utterly invalidate the tactic of poking over the top of a board stall with a couple of flyers for fear of getting blown out, if it weren't so bomby in those situations that the correct answer's to ignore it and hope they didn't draw it.

    Yet, a 5 mana spell needs to be that strong to fit into an aggro deck. So it should be a rare.

    This looks like it's secretly a combo card. Make a few flying tokens and all your spells on the combo turn become really cheap.

    If you're actually using it in an aggro deck, it doesn't have any independent board presence, can't defend itself and doesn't replace itself. She gets one jump in, then usually dies to a counterattack - not worth three mana.

    Haste tribal?

    In order to make this worthwhile as a pump spell, you need multiple retraces or a deck with 16+ haste creatures. That's achievable, although if you build around the +X/+0 your haste-granting has fewer targets.

    The ability to burn several lands to pump one creature really sells the design. With some haste on the table already, playing an evasive creature and spending multiple retraces on it yields a giant sucker punch.

    So, the Vorthos of me requires that I point out that due to the worldbuilding of Arcavios, allied color colleges don't really make sense, but I also understand the point of the prompt.

    Part of the point of Stryxhaven is using the color pairs in a way that they aren't often used, especially in a way different to Ravnica. For that reason, I am going to say that WU are neither skies nor control, but agro/tempo, with lots of blue bounce to clear the way for white aggro. I agree with Dr.Gunsforhands about them being engineers, though I would go with general engineering, not just civil engineering, and therefore artifacts would definitely be the subtheme.

    Your cards will be considered as if they were being printed into an extended Strixhaven set, but Strixhaven already has other draft archetypes besides spells matter! Long way of saying do whatever you would like!

    The way this agility is written I believe means you can only pay for one with an artifact so you are still hard paying the other 3UW. I like UW being engineers thats a fresh take on the color pair! 3/3 vigilance and bounce makes this a very solid tempo play but I think the cost is appropriate. I would have liked to see a slightly more unique effect on this card but you've managed to make something with a decent amount of text that still is easily understandable(aka not questing beast). gj!

    Mill X cards. Return all non-Aura enchantment cards with a converted mana cost of X or less from your graveyard to the battlefield, then do the same for Aura cards with a converted mana cost of X or less.
    Where the hell are all these new professor's coming from?


    My biggest gripe with this one is that a Final doesn't really feel like a lesson to me. The lessons that have been printed are all teaching something while this card is explicitly a test. Having a mill and res effect does seem like it could be in GW though and would lead to an interesting color pair identity.

    Food tokens! I enjoyed the typelines that you decided on, very fun. Having GR be the cooking college was a creative idea that pays off in your two deans. I think that your professors are well costed and distinct while still operating in a similar zone. gj!

    Cats integrate, dogs collaborate - i like it. I believe there are cards that let you look at the top card of your library whenever you want is that a two card infinite? Have untaps like that are probably okay for most other effects though. The dog dean is strong enough to be a stand alone card. They both provide a return target creature to "hand" effect each turn and usually an anthem. I like whats going on here but the two cards seem a little to different and a touch over tuned.

    I think that this could possibly cost one less mana. Claw Out 3 is brutal and you'll usually have to sac three lands to make this hit the board. I think the card is well named for Strixhaven and the flavor is on point.

    Thanks for the selection! Culinary arts was the best thought I had of how to illustrate a conflict between one of the allied pairs.

    For the next challenge, I'd like to celebrate some of Strixhaven's creature type diversity. So, make an enemy-colored card with one of the following creature types:
    Bear,
    Bird,
    Elephant,
    Frog,
    Lizard.


    These don't need to be set on Strixhaven, and they don't have to be anthropomorphic. I would like to see at least one of these in the type line, so Changeling isn't sufficient. You can mix and match if you please, so if you have a great idea for a Bear Bird or Elephant Lizard, be my guest.

    For reference, the "enemy" color pairs are WB, WR, UR, UG and BG.

    When Misbegotten Experiment enters the battlefield, exile all creatures that have a creature type Misbegotten Experiment does not have with a materials counter on them.
    Misbegotten Experiment has power and toughness equal to one greater than the amount of creatures types it has, and has the types of all non-changeling creature cards in exile with material counters on them.
