    When ~ enters the battlefiled put lover counters on 2 creatures. Creatures with lover counters get +1/+1.
    When a creature with a lover counter leaves the battlefield sacrifice ~, the controler of each creature with a lovers counter sacrifices it.
    Their love makes them stronger, it also spells their doom.

    Just so you know, you can't cast this with fewer than two targets. That might be intentional, though.

    1. You're correct in that the assumption for the incredibly wierd wording. If you're gonna have to 2-for-one yourself, it should definitely stick, so I tried to make typical defenses not work.
    2. It's 'sent to the graveyard' to get around indestructible and effects like Tejuru Preserver. They do die (by definition), but they are not destroyed or sacrificed.

    Thanks for pointing that one out, though. I now realize that more standard terminology would be to put it into the graveyard (al la corpse connoisseur Blightsteel, Haunt, and Gravestorm), instead of send it to the graveyard.

    Enchantment - Saga U

    (As this Saga enters and after your draw step add a lore counter. Sacrifice after IV)
    I - Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature
    II & III- Put a -1/-1 counter on target creature with a -1/-1 counter on it.
    IV - Destroy target creature with a -1/-1 counter on it.
    "Because there is no glory in illness. There is no meaning to it. There is no honor in dying of." - John Green

    I feel like thematically cancer feels like a more modern disease. The restriction on parts 2&3 I think make this saga a little weak for 3 mana. This card does a good job of having a single creature wither away and the mechanics nicely tell the story.

    I: Put a lover counter on target creature you control and target creature you don't control. Gain control of these creatures and they gain haste until the end of the turn.

    This is a very interesting act of treason, my only gripe is that I think this card would be a little hard to decipher for someone show doesn't know R&J.

    As an additional cost to cast Familial Chimera exile a human from your graveyard and exile a human you control from the battlefield.
    Familial Chimera has protection from creatures with first strike if any of the creatures exiled by it have first strike. The same is true for flying, deathtouch, double strike, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, menace, reach, skulk, trample, and vigilance.
    5/5

    While the card is while black - and well costed - I feel like the flavor of this card is more UB. This is a creative take on a chimera monster, I like the perversion of white keywords matter. I'm not sure if this is supposed to be a fma reference though.

    When Vengeful Rage enters the battlefield, if a creature died this turn, put two +1/+1 counters on enchanted creature.
    Enchanted creature gets +1/+1 and must attack each turn if able.

    I like this card a lot, I think it is a really interesting common and its sweet that it can be played in a bunch of different ways. However seeking vengeance doesn't feel super tragic to me, I wish we could see more of the enchanted creature's emotional pain somehow. Cool card!

    This is an interesting effect that makes me want to try to build some kind of engine. I think it is an interesting choice to have the choose X instead of target X. Also I think the last ability should just say destroy.

    *gasp* You linked us to the forbidden site! The bane of readers, the swallower of time! You monster! How could you!?

    Actually, that gives me a very neat idea for a card.


    Life-Breaking Binge XUBR
    Sorcery - MR
    (A large crystal ball with images that looks suspiciously like articles on different tropes in fiction dominates the picture, with 'Mad Scientist' on the left, 'Evil Overlord List' to the right, 'Archive Binge' on top and 'Go Mad From the Revelation' in the center. Over the crystal ball, a clearly disheveled, emaciated, and now screaming mage is seen frantically pawing through these images, motioning up to bring up another article from the bottom; the words 'Eld' and 'Ab' can be seen drifting up as his hands fray away from black fire, his body vanishes into blue mist and his mouth and eyes combust in red flame. A giant fanged mouth and pair of eyes in these colors can be seen behind him as the background fades to black...)

    You may spend only blue, black and/or red mana to pay X. If X is 5 or greater, this spell can't be countered.

    Target player exiles a card from their hand. If they can't, exile the top card of their library. Repeat this process X-1 times. Then, they exile the top X cards of their library. Life-Breaking Binge than deals X damage to them. This damage can't be prevented.

    Whenever combat damage would be dealt to enchanted creature, instead put that many scratch counters on it. Enchanted creature gets -0/-X, where X is the number of scratch counters on it.

    Counter target spell. If that spell is countered this way, put that card on the top its owner’s library instead of into that player’s graveyard. That player may scry 3, then draw a card.

    Just copied the wording on remand. I guess it doesn't work on spells that can't be countered :/

    ~ enters the battlefield tapped.
    When ~ enters the battlefield, sacrifice
    any number of creatures and put the same number of wealth counters on ~.

    T: C
    T, sacrifice a creature: Put a wealth counter on ~.

    T, remove X wealth counters from ~: Search your library for an artifact with CMC X (X can't be 0) and put it on the battlefield. Shuffle your library.

    I just hit random trope a few times until I got one that caught my eye, and it happened to be... Squirrels in my Pants.

    Squirrel Mobbing 1GW
    Enchantment- Aura (U)
    Enchant creature
    Squirrel Mobbing enters the battlefield with three squirrel counters on it.
    Enchanted creature can't attack or block. It loses all abilities and has "T: Target opponent creates a 1/1 green Squirrel creature token. Remove a squirrel token from Squirrel Mobbing. Then, if it has no squirrel counters on it, sacrifice Squirrel Mobbing."

    Cast only if it is not your turn. Put target creature card from a graveyard onto the battlefield under your control. Sacrifice it at the end of the turn.

    You need to specify where in the library the cards are exiled from, and the last effect has to be worded in a very particular way for the rules to actually parse it. I think the proper templating for this card (cleaning up a few other things as well) would be:
    "You may spend only blue, black and/or red mana to pay X. If X is 5 or greater, this spell can't be countered.
    Target player exiles a card from their hand. If they can't, exile the top card of their library. Repeat this process X-1 times. Then, they exile the top X cards of their library. Life-Breaking Binge deals X damage to them. This damage can't be prevented."

    You don't need the "without paying its mana cost" when you're just slamming things onto the battlefield; you only need that if the cards are actually being cast, which in this case they're not.
    A couple other suggestions that aren't about whether the card works under the rules, so feel free to take or leave them:
    1. Wizards hasn't printed a land with no mana ability in quite some time, because people tend to play them wrong, for example, they'll just count the number of lands they have to determine how big they can make an X spell, etc. and forget that one doesn't produce mana. It also makes it harder for opponents sitting across the table to figure out how much mana you have potentially available. That's why most nonbasics at least have "Tap: add C."
    2. The last ability is extremely powerful in any environment with artifacts that have CMC 0. I suggest adding the rider "X can't be zero" so that players have to actually use some counters to use the card.

    Thanks for proofreading ;)

    1. I understand where you're coming from and it makes sense to me
    I just wanted to nitpick, that there is at least one recent land without mana ability (e.g. Fabled Passage)

    2. Good catch.

    I will implement your advice (and hope that's okay to do so)

    Fetches are the exception, and are in a different category because they all grab lands that do tap for mana.
    Stop using good evidence and logic that makes sense to refute points, that's my job
