Up: Just what I was thinking. It might be concept art for the isle of masks or from WC3. I've been thinking about making a dota set; if you're up to it, we could collaborate. PM me if you're interested.

Ashiok doesn't have a way to tap himself. His ultimate isn't too powerful, and while he exiles a lot of cards, he doesn't exile nearly as many as, say, even the first Jace, to make mill that profitable. The current Ashiok doesn't care about milling your opponent out since he can use the exiled cards somewhere.

The tapped/untapped Planeswalker bit was a bit weird. Can't fault you for the ability, because I can't really think of anything to do either.

Up: Looks good, might be a little broken late game, since it's potentially a source for tons of card draw for effectively 3 mana, since anyone who casts it will like untap the lands spent to pay for X and maybe a nonbasic land they played that turn.

Desperate Assault 5 mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol
Sorcery Mythic Rare
Creature you control get +X/+X and have trample and "If this creature deals combat damage to a player, you win the game." until end of turn, where X is the number of turns you have taken.
At the beginning of your end step, you lose the game.

hopefully it's worded right, i tried to design it to where you win instantly if one of your creatures deals combat damage to a player, and if you don't you lose.

Up: Maybe a little overcosted, especially since you can destroy it with a shatter or acidic slime or practically anything. Either give it some way of protection, like indestructible so you can only exile or bounce it or make it a little less costed, maybe 6. Otherwise, it's a fine card I think, a little boring if anything. But then again, who am I to tell anyone here how to make their cards?

2.5x better than the original dual lands, with the only downside being legendary? That seems pretty OP. Also, unless I'm missing something glaringly obvious, there's no art credit. Paradise also seems like a keyword with pretty limited applications.

Tap symbol: Add 2 mana symbol to your mana pool. Activate this ability only if a player owns 7 or more exiled cards.

Up: I don't think being legendary is enough of a drawback for an unconditional, fetchable, tap-for-anything land. A good number of decks will only ever need one of these to function correctly, anyway.

Wolf Lairs

As Wolf Lairs enters the battlefield, you may reveal a Werewolf card from your hand. If you don't, Wolf Lairs enters the battlefield tapped.

Up: I'm not sure why anybody would actually use this creature. It's strategically better for each of the "other players" (by which I assume you mean opponents) to refuse to put +1/+1 counters on it, thus killing it as soon as it enters the battlefield.

Alright, I'll take the hit and make a card with both parley and clash. *shudders*
Gotta keep the thread alive.

Temporal Gamble 3 mana symbolRed mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Sorcery Mythic Rare
Parley— Each player reveals the top card of his or her library, then puts it on the top or bottom of his or her library. Then, you may clash with each other player.
For each clash you win this way, take another turn after this one. For each clash you lose this way, skip your next turn.

@DoomSp0rk: Exactly as jacqui-pup says. Maybe I should have put a reminder behind graft. Also, in contrast to your card, I meant to clash with each player simultanously, so that everyone reveals the top card and if one player has highest cmc, (s)he gets the Ooze.

Up: Isn't that exactly the new land, Blighted Crossroads or whatever, except Blue? It's cool I guess, but blue really isn't the color that needs more card draw. Personally, I'd make it Red or White somehow and make it really viable in Commander, but otherwise it's neato. 6,5/10 (that's almost 7 =D)

Spoiler:

Old: Is from a Ravnican Guild other than Rakdos.
New:Is Legendary, but not a character/event that has a card.

I'm here and there every once in a while. Then I'll disappear for a month or so, returning from the grave, do a few competitions, only to disappear for a month again. If you would, for any reason, PM me, do not expect a reply in less than two weeks. ^-^

UP: So if you have hellbent, your opponent discards their hand and you get to draw five? That sounds... powerful.

We already have Norn the wary. Though a white legendary Vortex Elemental is interesting.

Up: This is far too specific, methinks and isn't worth 5 mana symbol.
