    Oh man, you got Professor G? He’s such a hard grader. I quite like this incarnation of Jin-Gitaxias, quite a bit cheaper and not nearly as oppressive, which is a good thing. He makes it harder to find an answer for him, and provides a solid source of card advantage, but doesn’t feel like he’d be bad to play aginst. Good work on the parallels to Vorinclex, too!

    This is a rather aggressive blocker, and will probably be able to trade with creatures up to the 6 drop slot. It might get a little annoying in limited at common, but at the end of the day, it is a defender, so I think it would be alright. And a good reference, as well.

    Spells with the chosen name can't be cast.
    At the beginning of each player's upkeep, you may pay WU. If you do, exile target nonland permanent they control. Until end if turn, its owner may cast it from exile.
    2/2
    This is a very meddlesome mage! Two mana to effectively lock down any creature without haste or a non-tap activated ability is pretty good, though it does get significantly worse against ETB creatures, which have been getting really good lately. Or, use it to abuse your own ETBs. I think them having to recast the permanent that turn might be a little too oppressive, so maybe switch it to “as long as the card remains exiled, they may cast it”, but I don’t have much experience with prison decks.

    When Spellcasting Practice Dummy enters the battlefield you may counter target instant or sorcery spell. If a spell is countered this way, exile it. Until end of turn that spell's controller may cast it from exile without paying its mana cost and while that player is choosing targets as part of casting that spell, they must choose Spellcasting Practice Dummy if able.

    A zero mana counter a targeted spell seems like a card that just shouldn’t be printed. Free cards are very often problematic, and a colorless counterspell on its own is an issue, even if it is narrow. This needs to have a mana cost with blue in it.

    I like the versatility on this card; either an anti-control spell to protect another spell you cast this turn, or a planeswalker hate card. This totally seems like something that could get printed!

    Whenever an opponent shuffles their library, look at the top two cards of their library. Exile one of them face-down. You may look at and play this card for as long as it remains exiled, and may spend mana as though it were of any color to cast it.
    Cheating is such an ugly word. I prefer to think of it as using nonstandard skill sets to arrive at the right answers.

    This is a pretty neat card! Not oppressive, but lets you get some value off your opponents’ tutors and fetches. Definitely seems like it’d be a solid card in Commander, with all the shuffling that goes on there and multiple players to steal from.

    So, at its most basic, it deals 1 damage to an opponent a turn. I like the idea, though I’m a little worried of how it’d feel when your opponent gets down to five or less life and you cast this. It could potentially just lock them out of the game entirely. Of course, that’s usually a bad situation to be in, anyway, so I think this could be alright.

    A very nice pun, and a clean, fitting design. Roost of Drakes was a very strong limited card, though this can’t create a bird on its own, at least, and it weakens the birds if you take this out. Still, maybe bump up the mana cost just a bit, or make you pay blue instead of generic for the bird?

    Quite a value planeswalker! Making a creature every turn to protect itself is good, and though the ultimate isn’t win-the-game on the spot, it’s still quite easy to get to. The second ability is also solid. It feels just a bit overtuned, possibly reduce the starting loyalty or raise the ultimate cost by 1. It’s a very nice design, though, and fitting with what little we saw of her in War of the Spark.

    This feels like it's crying out for a -1: Exile target permanent, then return it to the battlefield at the beginning of the next end step. Thematic given Teferi's Time Twist and facilitates the static ability nicely.

    As is this could still be absolutely brutal with False Memories and a bit of support (mill and rest in peace) in a self mill deck.

    Interesting little pseudo-Conspire type effect. The fact it's strictly superior to already existing cards does leave a somewhat bad taste in the mouth, though.

    I should disqualify this out of hand, since it doesn't have any intrinsic way to be cast from outside hand, but I'll humor you on this.

    Effects like Snapcaster don't work-the only way you can cast this is by ignoring its mana cost. In which case, it's simply underwhelming, because most comparative spell gets more bang for buck. When you/re gonna compete with Hypergenesis and Living End for being what you cascade into, you're gonna have to do more than bolt. Or if you're trying to decide what to use Omniscience with, you're gonna go for something with way more bang.

    Seems kinda clunky to use. Only three counters makes it kinda short to be solving a problem of enemy blockrs, and the sorcery speed restriction seems to make it risky to use on your own stuff. It's also just really mana intensive, espeially considering for much needs to be colorless

    Two colors to fail the vanilla test seems to be a bit harsh, even if it does deck thin while doing so. Considering this probably doesn't start until turn 3, just seems really underwhelming.

    Ouch. Clunky to use, given it's 6 mana and needs something else to exile it, but that effect could make for an abolutely backbreaking control deck, considering how much 'then exile it' is used to put a cap on recycling things. Especially since anything with Flashback could basically be re-used forever. Also, probably plays a little too well with all the 'extra turn-exile this' cards like Temporal Mastery.

    3/3
    Not too much to say here. Respectable enough to hardcast normally, and very efficient when foretold. Not quiete enough to make foretelling and casting immedeately worth it, but a dang good three-drop. And kudos for not making the same mistake wotc made when they put drawing three on the same level as healing 3 or dealing 3

    2/2
    Like the idea of casting from the battlefield as a interesting take on flicker. Just seems really off in those colors, since it basically acts as either a flicker (which green doesn't do), or an inefficient steal effect (which neither color really does).
    Also, clever with how it's mana-dorkiness works with using it as a steal-lets you make opponent's colors to cast their stuff.

    Trying for something that is likely to have a very different goal on the rebound.
    As you pointed out, the fact the rebound will likely do differing things each time, despite the same effect, is a clever little bit there. Being an instant also really adds to the flexibility in that way.

    Ouch. Clunky to use, given it's 6 mana and needs something else to exile it, but that effect could make for an abolutely backbreaking control deck, considering how much 'then exile it' is used to put a cap on recycling things. Especially since anything with Flashback could basically be re-used forever. Also, probably plays a little too well with all the 'extra turn-exile this' cards like Temporal Mastery.
    It's actually meant to be a little clunky, as it is supposed to be the equivalent of a planeswalker-deck 'walker. And, yes it would make for a rather mean control deck with the right setup, but if the person playing against control lets control get setup, that's slightly on them. I also didn't give it a way to self exile for a reason.

    Interesting little pseudo-Conspire type effect. The fact it's strictly superior to already existing cards does leave a somewhat bad taste in the mouth, though.
    The card appears fair to me because the card it's strictly better than has itself been upstaged by strictly better cards before. Compared to those cards, it'd be a side grade that some, but not all, decks would prefer. We might be operating on different assumptions of how easy getting a discard outlet is, too.

    Still, I don't think it'd be unreasonable to nerf the card. In fact, I considered making it an instant but decided against it because needing a discard outlet for instant speed made the card less powerful and more interesting to play against.

    The setup can be crazy fast though with things like false memories, rest in peace/tormod's crypt, any number of cheap self mill or even force of will/commandeer as a free counterspells that also lets you set up your exiled cards.

    Anyway, onto the challenge: Make an aura

    Enchanted permanent has "This permanent does not untap during its owner's upkeep unless they discard a card."
    As long as enchanted permanent is tapped it cannot activate abilities.

    Whenever enchanted creature becomes tapped mill four cards and then exile a card at random from your graveyard. Until end of turn, you may play that card.

    Is it weird that the first three of these were effectively arrest variants/discourage attacking?

    ...in my defense, I wrote the comment at the top of the post before I designed the card, and I didn't realize what I had done until I was finished.

    If enchanted permanent or ~ would leave the battlefield, instead exile both of them.
    As long as ~ is exiled, cards cannot leave exile.
