Up: Looks fairly inoffensive to begin with, but that +1 could get oppressively powerful late game - might want that to be a fixed number. Also feels odd to have an Elspeth that doesn't make Soldiers - it's like a Jace that doesn't draw or a Chandra that can't deal damage.

(Also, yeah, let's not evergreen delve. When one common with the mechanic is banned and the other is probably the single most played creature in Pauper... maybe we have balance issues.)

Up: I would have the -X Loyalty ability be an or phrase (as in "Destroy X permanents or deal X damage to target player..."). It would greatly cut down on the power level of the ability. As Flo00 mentioned below, the final ability should be worded differently, due to "die" simply meaning "put into a graveyard from play".

How about both?

Up: I guess the +X Loyalty should either be a 0 Loyalty or it should just say "X is the number of artifacs you control." I'd go for the first one, because the second one would be a really weird activated ability without any effect.
The -X Loyalty is pretty overpowered. I sacrifice three lands or goblin tokens to destroy most or all of my opponents field and everything that doesn't die to the damage is destroyd by the first part of the ability. I can even remove a few artifacts or enchantments in the process. Besides that, it should target the permanents it destroys.
But the rest of Sareita is ok.
Just a small template thing on the last ability: It should say something like "... equal to the power of the creature that died." because creatures can easily die without being destroyed (by damage, -X/-X an the likes) Winking smiley

@Yoshi the transformed side having haste is literally useless since it's already attacked if you've transformed it.

Up: Interesting, both in interpretation and in mechanics. I like it personally, but I'm no good at judging the power of snow-based cards.

Hmm...

Up: It's like Forked-Branch Garami's little sister. I was a huge fan of the Kamigawa spirits back then. I love it.

I you mean "noncreature subtype", I meant a subtype of something that is not a creature. So it could maybe be an Equipment or a Trap or a Shrine or a Gate ...
If you meant the mana cost, that was a typo ^^

Don't see why not. It's a Spirit, and a remake of the world enchantment Forsaken Wastes.
