Works like all the other fast games. Just here the challenges consist of a typeline:

1. Rate previous design.
2. Post design with the given typeline.
3. Post new typeline.

The typeline may or may not include a rarity.

First challenge: Creature - Phoenix Zombie

"It's not difficult to make Magic players feel smart." - Mark Rosewater
Furthermore, I consider that Carthage must be destroyed.

Up: Kinda bad at judging, but this seems pretty strong. Mind strong in a good way. I like it.

A twist on Pacifism, not sure about rarity but this is a color pie deviation, so:

Bonding Sap 1 mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Enchantment - Aura Uncommon
Enchant creature with flying
Enchanted creature can't attack or block.

Next Challenge: Enchantment Artifact - Vehicle

I just dont understand why people pay thousands for a piece of cardboard.
Why just don't play some casual? Gee, it isn't even fun to play with, and especially against.

Up: This will usually be worse than Plummet, so I think it should be Common. It might even be okay for just Green mana symbol.

Chariot of the Gods 4 mana symbol
Enchantment Artifact - Vehicle Uncommon
Flying, trample
Crew 2 (Tap any number of creatures you control with total power 2 or more: This Vehicle becomes an artifact creature until end of turn.)
Whenever a God crews Chariot of the Gods, it gets +5/+5 until end of turn.
3/3

Note that you can crew it multiple times with Gods to make it bigger and bigger.

Next: Creature - Homunculus Rare

Furthermore, I consider that Carthage must be destroyed.

Up: This is probably a bit too swingy - I'd make it such that you can only crew it with one god. Still neat.

Slavering Scribe 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Creature - Homunculus Rare
Tap symbol: Scry 1.
Inspired - Whenever CARDNAME becomes untapped, put a -1/-1 counter on it and draw a card.
It didn't necessarily write the right things, but it did for sure write things.
0/5

Next: Instant - Trap Uncommon

December 2017 - R32 - "We are more than just rank and file..."
February 2018 - DDH - "Remember that overconfidence is a slow and insidious killer."

I stand with the specimen.

Up: you missed the word trap on the typeline, but the card looks balanced.

Caliman of the Legion2 mana symbolRed mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Viashino Cleric Mythic Rare
Haste, first strike
Battalion - Whenever ~ and at least two other creatures attack, you may pay Red mana symbolWhite mana symbol. If you do, creatures you control gain lifelink until the end of the turn
3/3

Next: Legendary Sorcery
(for those who somehow haven't received the news, a legendary sorcery can be cast only if you control a legendary creature or planeswalker)

I swear I have a life. Just not right now.

Up: Looks a bit weak for Mythic Rare - I think this could easily be rare. Quality card, wrong rarity.

Tamiyo's Sublime Studies 3 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Legendary Sorcery Rare
(You may only cast this spell if you control a legendary creature or planeswalker.)
Cycling 1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol (1 mana symbolBlue mana symbol, Discard this card: Draw a card.)
Draw four cards, then you may put a legendary permanent with converted mana cost 4 or less from your hand onto the battlefield.

Up: I like the combination of cycling and legendary sorcery. It totally makes sense. In comparison with other legendary soceries I have seen so fat, this looks a bit too powerful, especially because you can cycle it. Maybe draw only three cards?

Indisposable Pest 3 mana symbol
Artifact Creature - Pest Rare
At the beginning of each end step, return Indisposable Pest from your graveyard to your hand.
0/1

Next: Instant - Arcane Trap

Up: Good card. I think it's costed well for what it does and it certainly lives up to being a pest.

Strike from the Darkness Black mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Instant - Arcane Trap Common
If exactly one creature is attacking, you may reveal a Ninja card from your hand and pay Black mana symbol rather than pay ~'s mana cost.
Destroy target creature.

Next: Enchantment - Aura Elemental ((So non-creature with the Elemental creature type, like the old Tribal cards from Lorwyn))

Strike from the Darkness: Interesting idea, but triple colour density is definitely not common. 2 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol or even 3 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol would be more appropriate costs.

Sinful Fire Red mana symbolRed mana symbol
Enchantment - Aura Elemental Uncommon
Enchant creature
Enchanted creature attacks each combat if able. If it's an Elemental, it gets +2/+0 and first strike. Otherwise, it deals 2 damage to its controller whenever it attacks.

Next: Creature - Elf Barbarian Common
