Up: Awesome card. You should probably word it like Contamination.

Harbinger of Emrakul White mana symbolBlack mana symbolRed mana symbol
Creature - Demon Rare
Flying
Whenever a creature attacks, Harbinger of Emrakul deals damage to it equal to the number of colors it is.
4/5

I thought about giving it devoid, but that would have felt like cheating the challenge a bit.

Old: Is 3 or more colours.

Up: A very interesting card, as it deals damage to itself when it attacks. It would be really good in an Eldrazi deck (obviously), but it's not a great idea to attack with it, as it will take 3 damage. I really like the flavor of it too. 9/10

EDIT:

Spoiler:
@Ruselbrand: It's good practice (though not required) to at least rate both of the previous cards if someone is ninja'd, if not create a card for both challenges (using one or two cards), rather than just ignore the poster who got ninja'd. Keep in mind, many people put a lot of thought and work into card design, so it is extremely frustrating (at least for me) as a card designer to go through effort to meet the challenge requirements, only to find out you got ninja'd and thereby, somebody just ignores your card and gives no feedback. In contrast, it is extremely gratifying when someone else takes the time and effort to critique both cards and fulfill both challenges because you know someone was willing to help you out even though they didn't have to. I'm not saying you have to change anything that you did, I'm just saying it's a nice thing to do for another person.

@Ruselbrand: You're good, just figured I'd give you a friendly tip. A happy smile And you fixed it anyway!

Sedris, Sultan of Chaos: I like him. Very cool. He seems to fit Grixis/Blue mana symbolBlack mana symbolRed mana symbol so good job. Maybe anti-synergistic with the Grixis keyword Unearth, but he still fits since it counts all graveyards. Now how much more interesting would he be if HE had Unearth... 10/10

Tezzeret, Filigree Genius: Seems to do what Tezzeret likes to do, but there is zero reason for this Tezzeret to be black. Every one of those abilities can be seen on monoblue cards. His last ability is actually almost red, but I think it would be fine if he was 3 mana symbolBlue mana symbol or 2 mana symbolBlue mana symbolBlue mana symbol, since blue has Tinker. Comparing to Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas he seems like he shouldn't be black either, but his ult can cause some pretty severe life loss/gain, which does not fit into blue at all, even if it is conditional on your artifacts. Thusly, I think your Tezzeret should be monoblue. Nice job though. 9.0/10

Gerinhorth, the Bloody
Black color identity Legendary Creature - Demon Spirit Mythic Rare
Emerge 6 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol

Up: Disentomb is perfectly playable and this is quite a bit stronger - a deck with good graveyard control will have no trouble at all hitting the "exactly seven" threshold. So this makes me kinda wary. 6/10. Also, 1/10 seems really harsh for what is, apart from that one criticism, a perfectly solid card.

@Flo00: Oh yeah. I didn't even think about that. I guess I just interpreted the challenge as "can't be cast (normally) from your hand" or "No mana cost." And yeah, you met my restriction. I just didn't want someone to go, "No mana cost? I'll only give it a miracle cost!" like I did. Stick out your tongue
@thehuw: Like what Nhoj was saying, Life from the Loam makes this really powerful, and any land-fetches at all. Hell, this gets really nasty when you add fetch-lands into that combo. I'm very wary of seeing any spells like this, especially this one since it shuffles back into your library, without a "You may cast only one card named ~ each time you search your library," clause at the very least, if not a once-per-turn limitation. This would prevent a manaramp deck from saccing a single fetch-land with nine mana available and using these to just kill the opponent outright. This would be a 4-of in any deck-build-around. I'm not saying it's not cool, I'm just saying right now it looks a little too abusable.

1 mana symbol, Tap symbol: CARDNAME deals 1 damage to target tapped creature. Untap that creature.
3 mana symbolBlue mana symbol: Until end of turn, whenever CARDNAME deals damage to a creature, put it on top of it's owner's library.

White can deal damage to tapped creatures. White can gain life. Blue can put stuff on top of libraries. There's precedent for white protecting noncreature cards.

Old: Allied colors or noncreature
New: Has Colorless mana symbol in it's textbox.

Up: I like this flavor a lot. A lot a lot. Though I worry that CMC 3 is too cheap for the effect.

P.S. This card would be hilarious when Awoken.

Old: Doesn't produce mana.
New: Is a noncreature Tribal card.

Up: Elves getting Colorless mana symbol costs feels very off to me, especially in Lys Alana. This design would work a lot better with a tribe that wasn't so iconically about large amounts of colored mana.

I'm not a huge fan of the tribal type, but eh.

(OOC: I was kinda imagining a block where Lorwyn starts losing colors - so White mana symbolGreen mana symbol elves become Colorless mana symbolGreen mana symbol, and so on. Seemed fun in my head.)

Also, is it considered bad form to sandwich post in a thread like this?

It's not actually against the rules here, but it is for Challenge Game and I think it's general etiquette to wait two posts in most of these "rolling" challenge threads.

Up: Unison seems like a really interesting mechanic in a tribal matter set. Other than that, this card seems like a fine trick at Common in limited, even without the copy.
