I don't mean to butt in, but feel an additional comment on Anuttymous' Infertile Ground is needed:
An enchantment with "Enchant tapped land" would be put into the graveyard as soon as the land untapps. (cf.: Entangling Vines)
To gain the desired effect a clause like on Dream Leash is needed.

I hope nobody minds me using this thread to point that out, but I felt like some additional rules-knowledge won't hurt if the design space that goes with it is explored.
If anyone does, feel free to delete this post. Thank you.

I think windandfire was looking for a card that actually said "Splice onto Instant" or "Splice onto Sorcery". Although, historically, I tend to be wrong about things like these due to lack of reading on my part. You just made another card with "Splice onto Arcane".

Splice onto --- has to splice onto a subtype, hence Arcane, otherwise Instant/Sorcery would have to be a subtype. I think, anyway.

Smooth, thanks for pointing that one out - I was planning on putting it in a set at some point, and it wouldn't have worked otherwise. Good job.

Lord of the Labyrinth 4/10 - Sorry, but a blue minotaur? I know that the abilities are blue, but generally you ca override the colour for flavour purposes, simply by upping the cost, or weakening the effect - see Hornet Sting and Entangling Vines. Also, flash seems completely unnecessary. 2/4 seems a bit weak for a Minotaur as well, but considering "Prevent all combat damage" it wouldn't matter.

Serra's Chosen White mana symbol
Creature - Angel {M}
Flying
As long as you control three or more white creatures, CARDNAME gets +4/+4 and has vigilance and lifelink.
1/1

Yeah, it could easily be second turn 5/5 scary, but look at Demon of Death's Gate, that could be second or third turn HUGE. And they're both mythic.

Next challenge: Make an angel equivalent of Demon of Death's Gate.

Serra's Chosen- 8/10. Something about it doesn't seem "Mythic" to me. Still, I like the design of the card.

Yea, I did intend to have it Splice onto either Instant or Sorcery. Didn't expect to stumble into any rules issues, but I believe it's widely assumed that Splice could easily be modified to work with non-permanent supertypes.

Protector of Heaven - 10/10. I wish I could give some constructive criticism on this one, but I'm afraid, I love it.
Flavorful, accurately costed and a very good way to bring in the duality of the supertypes. Kudos.

There is an artwork released, with the title "Mox Opal".
Spoiler:

Some additional information:
From Wikipedia:
Opal ranges from clear through white, gray, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, magenta, rose, pink, slate, olive, brown, and black.
Having said that, and by basic knowledge about mtg, some things about the card are almost certain:
It will tap for any color of mana.
It will be an artifact for 0 mana symbol
It will enter the battlefield untapped.
Knowing wizards, they will come up with a silly drawback that keeps the power level in check, but it's very possible for that card to be mythic. I mean seriously, the name by itself deserves mythic status. You know what to do. Good luck.

Spoiler:
Equillus is the physically weakest of the Eldrazi titans. It is also the oldest of all Eldrazi, and the first to consume a plane. However, this plane was the Eldrazi homeworld of Eldraz'Shor - known to planeswalkers today as Equilor. Equillus was forced by Emrakul to reliquish its physical power so that the now hungry Eldrazi could find a new plane to settle on. But the other three became addicted to the planar annhiliation, and Equillus was trapped on Eldraz'Shor's dead husk to wither and rot.

Equilus: 9/10. Peculiar dude... the main reason for not getting 10/10? The flavor seems a bit off to me. Not sure how to describe it, save that I somehow feel the Eldrazi wouldn't either A) Prey on their brethren or B) Negotiate and then let it stay alive. Plus, how come he hasn't nommed all of Equilor by now?

Tezzeret the Remade: Lets see...

First ability: 10/10, I like this one. Pretty cool, and pretty simple.
Second ability: 6/10, Also very simple, but way too strong. In the right deck, this is a reuseable Diabolic Tutor, on a + ability. No good.
Third ability: 7/10 Fine, minor grammar, but good enough.
Fourth ability: 5/10 I like the effect of it, but it isn't so good (In most cases, it will put him on less than 5 loyalty counters), and it doesn't have any synergy with any of his other effects whatsoever.

Overall: 7/10

A review of the previous card:

Spoiler:
Venser, the Sojourner: 10/10 Based on what little I know about Venser (which is only what I inferred from the three cards bearing his name), you seem to have the nature of his abilities down well. I kinda wish his ultimate had included suspended cards as well (a la Venser's Diffusion), but I can't take a point off for that in good faith because a set Venser appears in is highly unlikely to include any cards with Suspend on them.

My attempt at Nikeyeia's challenge:
Spoiler:

Next challenge: Design a rare or mythic noncreature permanent that your opponent would be hesitant about targeting with removal, possibly due to an additional effect (like the one on Ashenmoor Liege, for instance).

Hmm... I don't see much reason for spoiler tags for the rating, but just in case:

Spoiler:
Wormcoil Engine: 7/10. It fits the name, and the card is balanced, but the ability seems out of place in green. Given, green hates artifacts, but still feels out of place. A quick Gatherer search reveals that the bulk of the cards that care about artifacts moving to the graveyard are either colorless or black.

::EDIT:: This now fits the original challenge ::/EDIT::

Sacrifice ~: Draw three cards.
When a noncreature permanent becomes the target of a spell or ability an opponent controls, put a fate counter on ~.
When ~ is put into a graveyard from the battlefield, you may draw three cards for each fate counter on it.

This card is meant to represent the 3 Fates of Greek myth, especially in the sense that while you could tamper with fate, it would just make matters worse.

Jinxed Necklace - This actually doesn't seem to be something that needs to be jinxed; for 2 mana, +1 damage to opponents from all sources doesn't seem that good when compared to things like Honor of the Pure (even though this can go into any color deck). Of course, there's the fact that two of these will strangle someone to death instantly...

Tidemare- Flash makes this guy a handy, no-strings-attached blocker when the rest of your dudes are off fending Vengevines and Bloodbraid Elves intending to tear you a new one. Good job.
Radiancemare- Weaker than the Tidemare, and too similar to it. Give it some other ability.

Don't forget to rate the previous card. A lot of people who tackle these challenges do so for feedback on their card creation skills.

6/10 but no negative reasons given? Um...

Coal Kavu: 4/10. Got the challenge, though some of the words feel forced. It has no P/T and that ability as written will only trigger if it's the only creature on the board. And it's LOSES.

Now... yay, a cycle. o_o
