Hmm. Even at uncommon, it seems like its got too much going for it. Its practically a unkillable defender that punishes those attackers. It just feels, weird...

Mechanical Dolphin Knight: This is complex, but so were Alara's commons. In a colored-artifact set, this would be fine. Is it intentional for it to come out as a 2/2 immediately?

Telethopter 1 mana symbolBlue/black mana symbol
Artifact Creature - Thopter Uncommon
Sunburst (This enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it for each color of mana spent to cast it.)
Flying

EDIT: Switched from White/blue mana symbol to Blue/black mana symbol; simply because White mana symbol doesn't interact with the library as much.

I can see Telethopter being very useful. The Sunburst doesn't get to its full potential tho, but that's fine. The activated ability is very cool and quite useful in a "reveal the top card of your library" deck (making planning ahead with Stormchaser Chimera very useful, or telling if you should scry with Stormcaller of Keranos). Plus, kudos for making a thopter.

Up: Yes, it's an artifact creature and it's a 0/0, but neither of those really had to necessarily be part of that card. That being said, a miracle creature is interesting and, while it doesn't have the most interesting ETB effect, the concept of getting a free guy and fogging is nice. A diff. miracle color than card is strange though.

@hossboyz: Like the charms. Three options.


Superhero's Ascent: Interesting, but very scary at the Miracle cost: which is nice to see. I would have worded the ability differently, though, "...gets +4/+4, has flying and vigilance, and is a Mutant in addition to its other types." All in all, it's a success. Nice to see miracle branching out.

Up: I think this should cost 1 mana symbol more, since it has no color weight involved and a useful combat skill (compare Kindercatch vs Rootbreaker Wurm - the latter is probably at the proper strength level to be Common again.)

Inspired by a spambot's recent post about a "Breitling Superocean Chronograph Steelfish" (These guys sure come up with creative titles, eh?), I decided to make the following :

Chronograph Fishwhelp 5 mana symbol
Artifact Creature - Fish Dragon Uncommon
Suspend costs of cards you control cost 1 mana symbol less to activate.

Old : Is a dragon.
New : Firebreathing Microscopes and Chronograph Fishwhelps! Your card is a very unusual Artifact Creature!

I once made a set along these lines.

Alright, let's lot leave this fun game go to waste!

Up: You forgot your card's rarity. I like your nod towards Priest of Urabrask, but be carefull with this upscaling mana generation effect. If the original Mirrodin Block taught us anything, then it's that "mana per artifact" can be easily abused. Judging this card in particular is difficult, because it really depends on the enviroment of its block, but I would probably increase the mana cost, because it's way too easy to turn your simple two-drop into a Seething Song - which is banned in Modern for good reason - that comes with an extra 2/2.

So, for your challenge ... how about the mighty Urabrask himself? When all M15 Legendaries but Kurkesh where spoiled, I believed that Urabrask might have a chance of returning, to show of New Phyrexia to newcomers and to show his dispute with Elesh Norn to veterans. Thus, I desinged the following:

Urabrask, the Hatefull2 mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol
Legendary Creature - Praetor Rare
Haste
1 mana symbolRed mana symbol: ~ deals 1 damage to target creature that entered the battlefield this turn. Tap it.
After being usurped by Elesh Norn, the former preator Urabrask became an unwilling symbol of hope to the desperate Mirrans, despite being driven only by vengeance.
4/3

Old: Not quite evil... let your card show the good side of a character walking the line between good and evil.
New: Your card somehow references Xenagos, the Reveler. (Who is considered to be an enemy during the events of Theros and dead after the events of Theros.

Nebius: This looks like a pretty neat planeswalker. I'm surprised you put the three "puts" in the same ability, but it works well. I'm a little worried about its power early, since you're paying four mana to get three +1/+1 counters divided as you choose, and you can do it again next turn unless it gets shut down. The ultimate is a little weak when compared to Elspeth, Knight-Errant, but the card as a whole flows and reads well.

Up: That's a very weird creature. I have no idea how to rate it properly so I'll give a 6/10 o-o

• Put a 3/3 green and white Beast creature token with vigilance onto the battlefield.
• Sulfurbreath Baloth gains trample and haste.

UP: Trample and haste seems like the worst option on this, it should be a 3/3. I don't see why is should only happen when you cast it from your hand, it's in the perfect reanimation colors.

Legendary creature - God Rare
Whenever an opponent would draw a card, they instead reveal their hand and the top card of their library, then you choose one -
• That player puts all cards with the same name into their owner's graveyard and draws a card.
• You draw a card for each card with the same name, then that player draws a card.
2/1
Cosi, his ways are above ares as the skies above the sea.

OLD: Is legendary but bad as a commander
NEW: Cares about lands

On mobile from now on, so my wording will be off. Hopefully it'll get the point across.

I thought about blink effects. But well, doesn't look like a good reason.
