Up: pretty good, i might've made it have effects depending on the colors of the permanent, but your design makes it more versatile.

Oath of Vicil 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Legendary Enchantment Rare
Whenever a planeswalker enters the battlefield under your control, you may search your library for an artifact, reveal it and put it in your hand then shuffle your library.
"to preserve the planes and the knowledge they hold, i will keep watch."

the most recent appearance of Vicil on the forums i can find is my post here, he used to have battle board, but i think it got deleted or something.

Old: Black
New: uses an Oath of the Gatewatch mechanic.

Up: "Then shuffle you library."
Otherwise, nice card. The original Oaths also have a "sorcery" ability when they enter the battlefield.

Mocker of Heroism 2 mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Eldrazi Drone Rare
Devoid (This card has no color.)
When Mocker of Heroism enters the battlefield, support 2. (Put a +1/+1 counter on each of up to two other target creatures.)
Creatures with +1/+1 counters on them have vigilance and can’t block.
2/2

Old: uses an Oath of the Gatewatch mechanic.
New: Uses a Gatecrash mechanic

Up: I love the flavor on this. Despite that, it's still a hella weird card.

Cycler of Souls 2 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Vampire Cleric Rare
Extort (Whenever you cast a spell, you may pay White/black mana symbol. If you do, each opponent loses 1 life and you gain 1 life.)
Whenever you extort for the first time in a turn, you may exile a card from your hand. If you do, support 3 unless an opponent pays 3 life and has you exile three cards from his or her graveyard. (Put a +1/+1 counter on each of up to two target creatures.)
"Goma Fada shall not be remembered, nor will it's casualties. Only dust will remain."
2/4

Up: That's not extortion, that's highway robbery!
Seriously though, a problems:
1) How will I be able to know which of you permanents' extort costs you're paying?
2) it's kinda excessive, don't you think? I mean 4 toughness, and ability you can activate whenever you have a White/black mana symbol to spare that permanently buffs your guys (including her) unless they pay life AND exile cards from their graveyard? For four mana? At rare?
3) You forgot to add a new limit.

@Digi: Judge's Familiar is probably the most recent example and Mana Tithe/Rebuff the Wicked. It's not commonplace no, but I feel like it fares better than counterspells in monogreen. But again, haste doesn't work in white at all, so I kind of...had to do weird things.

It was a hard challenge though, and perhaps there'll be something else that I could do better next time.

@yoshi: A few things: 1) The bird was a hybrid, not mono White mana symbol. 2) the other two examples were from Planar Chaos, which was 'Color-shifting: The Set'. Or did you not notice the Black mana symbol rebels, the Red mana symbol White Knight, or that Crovax is now White mana symbol? 3) a quick look at Gatherer showed me that since 2000 or so, the only instances of White mana symbol countering are a)Lapse of Certainty (which is temporary), b) from Planar Chaos, or c) Force Spike effects. And the only reason Force Spike was any good was that you could conceivably counter your opponent's first spell of you went first. Your guy's ability isn't Force Spike It's Power Sink!

tl,dr: Your guy's ability is way to effective to be White mana symbol, even on a legendary.

@Digi: I might be unspeakably dense, but how is it exactly like Power Sink? I think the comparison you need is to Clash of Wills, actually.

Also, in most cases, a lot of the stuff from Planar Chaos could work in the regular color pie. For example, AEther Membrane being red with reach, which actually works. Of course, in other cases, it doesn't, but in the case of white counterspells, shifting attack taxes to soft counterspells isn't too much of a stretch, to be honest.

@yoshi: It's my old-time Magic sensibilities acting up again. and more importantly, it's not the soft counter that's unprecedented in mono White mana symbol, it's that it's more that for 1 mana symbol. White countering is Green mana symbol card advantage; it's something that the color can do, but nowhere near as good Blue mana symbol. And a Clash of Wills is to effective for White mana symbol to pull off.

My challenge wasn't "ability that triggers from damage to players.

A "When this creature enters the battlefield it deals X damage to target player" fits; a "Whenever you cast <something> prevent all damage that would be dealt to target player" fits.
