    When Bael's Chosen attacks exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a land card.
    You may play an additional land from exile on each of your turns.
    Whenever a land card enters the battlefield under your control each player loses 1 life.

    Very weird, very strong. I don't think this fits in the UG color pie, as (the first time you play it, at least) it exiles almost everything without "transforming" it into anything for your opponent. It's cool that this is kind of a "one-time-use" board wipe, since the second copy wouldn't hit much, but this probably needs to be Sultai. The flavor also seems more Ooze-y since it's absorbing everything into itself.

    Interesting flavor, and it matches the creature type well, what with the regenerating of body parts. This would be a strong creature in limited just for the stats, but I'm not sure the ability would play all that well, as I can imagine a lot of players forgetting that activating the ability would reduce its toughness, potentially killing it.

    Weird to have a non-flying bird, but connecting it to the known quantity of owlbears makes it work. This would be a very strong limited 4-drop that would benefit from any number of +1/+1 counter based themes that usually pop up in simic. It is a bit snowball-y, which might feel bad to play against, but isn't super unreasonable and could serve as a signpost uncommon.

    • Each opponent loses 2 life
    • Create a 1/1 white and black Spirit creature token.

    Usually Orzhov spirit tokens have flying- of course, this gets substantially stronger if it does. Even just one of the options would be a strong enabler for consistent life gain limited strategies, and the body is decent for the cost. Fits in WB well and plays into the "bleeder" strategies typical of Orzhov. Good job overall.

    This is a monster in limited (and in concept), but the mythic rarity gives it mostly constructed applications. 6 is kind of a lot of mana to use for "threat of activation" in standard, but other cards with comparable activated abilities have seen play. Bonus points for getting all 5 creature types onto the card.

    This is an interesting combination of abilities, and with the right setup can get you the extra land drop right away (e.g. if you've delved away a fetchland). It is an enabler for a Thassa's Oracle/ Laboratory Maniac combo if you only play MDFC lands, but it wouldn't be the first thing to do that.

    I'm guessing putting the bird type in rules text rather than the type line is important to sell the "impostor" thing. The concept works flavorfully, but the mechanical result is a decent body that is a weird, very narrow hoser.

    This is an extremely powerful limited card- pushing a bit above where the signpost uncommons typically are, and it's in the colors most likely to have some +1/+1 counters, auras, or equipment to maximize it. It could probably be punched up to 3 or even 4 mana and still be good.

    Sagacious Cephalopod costs 4 less to cast if you have exactly 8 cards in hand.

    So to cast a card you put it on the stack then pay any costs so you need 8 other cards in hand to cast this for its discount. For clarity maybe say 8 other cards in the ability?

    Changed from being unable to attack during extra turns to giving it phasing, which aligns it more with Teferi while also meaning that it still can't attack during its own extra turns because it will be phased out.

    Krosan Adaption from Mystery Boosters more or less lays out how copying permanents spell as being cast would work with Krosan Adaptation (storm on an aura).

    Krosan Adaptation provides an outline for permanents with storm but buyback on permanents doesn't really work. Are you trying to put it back into your hand instead of resolving and being put on the field or when it would eventually go to your graveyard, it goes to your hand instead?

    When Cavalier of Silence enters the battlefield, exile up to two target permanents.
    When Cavalier of Silence dies, for each opponent, choose a card in exile that that opponent owns. That card's owner loses life equal to its mana value, and you gain that much life.

    When Ravenous Blood-Titan enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice X creatures you control and sacrifice X life. If you do, you may exile up to X number of non-legendary creatures from the battlefield.
    Intimidate(This creature can't be blocked except by artifact creatures and/or creatures that share a color with it.), Menace (This creature can't be blocked except by two or more creatures.)

    Sacrifice 2 lands: Ravenous Blood-Titan gains +3/+0 and Trample until end of turn.

    10/6
    Just FYI, you pay life, you don't sacrifice it, and I think that you don't need "number of" or "from the battlefield" in the second sentence, though you probably need the word "target".

    I like the suggestions, thanks! I like the idea that the presence of this horrific creature just causes other creatures, especially when an extra-terrible horrific sacrifice has been made to bring it into existence, simply causes other creatures to cease to exist.

    Edit: Oh, your suggestion got even better! thanks again!

    X, sacrifice X creatures and pay X life: Monstrosity (If this creature isn't monstrous, put X +1/+1 counters on it and it becomes monstrous.)
    When Ravenous Blood-Titan becomes monstrous, you may choose up to X non-legendary creatures and exile them.

    Intimidate(This creature can't be blocked except by artifact creatures and/or creatures that share a color with it.), Menace (This creature can't be blocked except by two or more creatures.)
    Sacrifice 2 lands: Ravenous Blood-Titan gains Haste until end of turn.

    Sorry, one last thing. I think you forgot to add the X after Monstrosity to designate the number of counters it gets.

    This is fine for a 9 cmc 9/9 but the betrayal effect in a vacuum doesn’t tell me much either in balance or how it plays.

    Not sure how I would word it – but I don’t think it would be like this? Might have to create Tokens? Regardless I know what you are trying to do with it. And 8 mana for a 6/6 non haste storm card seems fine to me.

    Reveal this card from your hand: Your maximum hand size becomes 8 until end of turn.
    This card has Flash as long as you have exactly 8 cards in hand.
    Sagacious Cephalopod can't be blocked.

    Not sure how this is supposed to work? At best you play an instant draw spell end of opponent’s turn putting you above 8, reveal this, and then cast it for 8? Seems like its supposed to be a blue finisher but the effect is so narrow not sure it is worth it.

    The only thing I don’t like about this card is that it doesn’t really make sense to me for an elf to be a 7/7. I know this is supposed to be seven elves but just don’t like that aspect of the fluff to mechanics transition. Otherwise it’s a good common.

    Practice seems like it would lead to trouble with storm spells on its own – still mana intensive. Not sure why it is an arcane spell? As for perfection – well storm and buyback 0 means that if you untap with this you should just win on the spot right?

    I may be out of the phasing loop but I’m assuming it doesn’t count as entering the battlefield? That said . . . let’s say you S&T it out. You have another turn and on that turn the Titan doesn’t exist. You take that turn like normal and then pass – your opponent gets a turn and then you get . . . two more turns and so on. So its 2 you 1 opponent. That seems broken to me – but I guess if you’re cheating him out there are other broken things you can do.

    So many abilities! In the grand scheme of things though I think its fine but honestly this seems like a legendary creature that was converted into a non-legendary. Ignoring that though – its main ability seems to be: 1: sacrifice a creature, exile target creature – which is strong but okay. The land sacrifice and multiple evasion with the monstrous makes this a “untap win card”.

    People will love to cheat this into play just for the first ability. The dies trigger is just gravy.

    I like this use of tribal affinity – I wonder if there is a cleric deck that will want to use this? This can probably come out turn 4 if you spam clerics and you can attack with around 12 power then. Powerful effect.

    This is a clever card – you can’t cheat it into play and expect it to be good – but if you hard cast it you’re probably getting around 20 power on the board. Well done.

    That is indeed how phasing works. It's basically a souped up Medomai the Ageless for costing 2 more. The thing with 8 drops is they basically either need an inherent way to make themselves cheaper (like the affinity ones) or boil down to "deal with this now or you lose". Saying something is broken if you show and tell it out, especially if cautions are taken against reanimation, says much less about how the card is broken and much more about how show and tell can be.
