    Cheaper arrest at the cost of them being able to use the creature when they really need to. Solid design but not much more to say.

    Interesting design. Feels like the primary use would be on your own creature while you have goblin tokens to throw at it or pushing for a brash taunter/stuffy doll but depending on the field it could turn into a weird form of pacifism.

    I'm not sure but this feels like it could get out off hand. The amount of repeatable self mill feels like this might be too good in certain decks with the chance of getting an extra card to cast being the icing on the cake.

    Compared with firebreathing effects, even though it costs more, it feels like it should have another downside given it's more permanent. I think I'd like it more if the activation was only at sorcery speed but it might just be me.

    Cheap menace with a boost along the lines of the Eldraine theme. Probably okay given black isn't the best at double casting in a turn.

    Probably okay. It feels like it's a bit of a win more card as if you can get it to deal combat damage and have something worth populating, you're probably pretty solid already. Might change on something with evasion though.

    And stay out!
    Feels weird in that it does very little to start with and unless you can sac an enchantment, you'll be losing card advantage and tempo playing this. It makes flicker effects just exile but given it doesn't play nice with cards that synergise with flicker normally means you'd only be running one or the other. Also shuts down reckless draws and special casts but I can't see that being enough even for sideboarding because it still needs setup before it can actually stop things.

    You didn't comment on this so I thought I would point out that my card can be played on any permanent. Thanks for judging.

    Missed that and that actually shifts my analysis to that it's a bad design because 2 mana land disruption is insane, especially when it has an alternate arrest mode for if their mana base is secure. If it was changed to a non-land permanent, we're more or less back at the initial judgement.

    Resourceful Apprentice U/G
    Creature - Human U
    Siphon 1 - Create a treasure token (Whenever an opponent casts a spell, you may pay 1. If you do, create a treasure token.)
    1/1

    General form is:

    Siphon X - Effect (Whenever an opponent casts a spell, you may pay X. If you do, Effect.)

    This ability is for a BUG wedge, thematically UB for siphoning away the strength of opponents spells for your own use and G for boosting yourself with that strength. Others examples that could be in a set include:

    Siphon 1 - Tap target creature
    Siphon 1 - Untap target creature
    Siphon 1 - Gain 2 life
    Siphon 1 - ~ gains hexproof until end of turn.
    Siphon 1 - Counter target spell unless it's controller pays 1
    Siphon 2 - Create a 2/2 green and blue elemental token
    Siphon 2 - Put 2 +1/+1 counters on ~
    Siphon 2 - Target player discards a card
    Siphon 2 - ~ becomes a copy of target creature
    Siphon 3 - Draw a card
    Siphon 3 - Copy target spell. You may choose new targets for the copy.

    The actual cost of each siphon would need to be balanced along with the base stats and cost of the card it's on and ones like the counters could appear multiple times. Mechanically leading stronger towards blue than the others but there's still green and black stuff there. The wedge design would also have a healthy serving of flash given siphon wants you to have mana open on your opponents turn and these are the colors flash is primary and secondary in.

    Not sure if this works for the challenge: as you pointed out, this is for a shard, while the challenge is for wedges specifically (two allied colors and their shared enemy color) You could keep the card by making the wedge WUR, though.

    Search your library for three land cards, reveal those cards, and put one onto the battlefield tapped, one into your hand and one into your graveyard. Then shuffle your library.

    I like how the flavor strongly gels with Abzan. It's pretty flexible as a removal and combat trick, though I'm not quite sure if this should be rare. With more freedom in where and when to put the counter than Outlast, this can open up more options for aggro plays.

    From what I'm understanding, mystical always gives a +1/+1 to another Elemental you control. It feels like a souped-up Prowess for most practical purposes, especially when it can turn Aethertouched Oracle into an Elemental lord. It's definitely a flavor win, but I fear targeted prowess (or mass prowess) can go easily out of hand for this archetype. Solid card.

    I see where you going for as far as Siphon's flavor is concerned, and that makes perfect sense to me. Resourceful Apprentice looks like a pretty neat showcase, though I feel like the Siphon cost needs to be at least 2 (or G?) since this is an easily repeatable color-fixing effect. I'm also a little surprised that it's U/G instead of U/B, as those are more in line with Treasure creation.

    I like the hook that you're going for despite not knowing a thing about Dark Souls lore, but I'm not sure it translates well to your wedge mechanics (or most of your showcase cards, for that matter). I guess this was more challenging since there were no keywords or ability words involved. The bottom of the library is certainly ripe for design exploration, but Fallen Pedagogue feels like its showcasing the graveyard more as a resource in an unconventional way (putting it at the bottom instead of exiling). As a standalone card, Fallen Pedagogue is mechanically alright, and I can even see it in a 2/2 body just fine. I honestly like Consider Eternity better, as I feel it highlights the wedge mechanics more.

    Calling-card Assassin is a sweet card name, first of all. I'm sold on the idea of permanent sort-of-goading and sort-of-provoking creatures as a WRB mechanics. However, I'm not sure how to feel about monowhite or BW cards generally being able to use force creatures to attack. That aside, Calling-card Assassin is an easy limited pick for me.

    On one hand, fecund looks less powerful than delve. On the other hand, Sabbath of the Land is really good, bonkers even, as it can easily net you 3 fetchlands in the graveyard. This is also in a set where you'll likely have triome-type lands. It's hard to gauge how balanced this card ultimately is without knowing the other BGU cards in the format, especially those with fecund. But it looks so good that I won't be surprised to see a short trip to the ban list.

    From what I'm understanding, mystical always gives a +1/+1 to another Elemental you control. It feels like a souped-up Prowess for most practical purposes, especially when it can turn Aethertouched Oracle into an Elemental lord. It's definitely a flavor win, but I fear targeted prowess (or mass prowess) can go easily out of hand for this archetype. Solid card.
    Sorry for the confusion
    The intent was actually for mystical to not necessarily always give something +1/+1, just for the mini cycle of signpost lords to do that. At common there would probably be one that gained life or tapped something.

    I went for UG because the ramp/mana fixing felt more like a green or simic effect. I might be wrong but I always thought treasure was only mainly grixis for flavor reasons because they were associated with pirates and that's what color pirates are. For the apprentice, treasure token probably doesn't fit as well flavor wise but does exactly what I wanted mechanically.

    Hooray! I was pretty happy with how CCA turned out, too.

    This week, the design-o-tron demands: A common card with a mana value of 1 that somehow helps you put cards in your graveyard, but doesn't actually use the graveyard as a resource itself.

    (Psst, hey, design-o-tron, which colors did you mean to interact with the graveyard theme in this set? ...what do you mean, "Surprise me?")

    Pretty narrow design space and with that, I think it'll be hard for anyone to top Cursory Glance with the surveil version of opt. My first thought turned out to be just a cheaper rotting rats without unearth (filling the graveyard from your hand instead).

    Spreading Amnesia U
    Enchantment - C
    Sacrifice a nonland permanent: Mill X where X is the sacrificed permanents converted mana cost

    Probably not a common but again, it's already a narrow design space without that.

    You do know that faithless looting is banned in modern, right?
