@Vunik: I think this can even be a Common. Magnetic Flux, Skyshaper and Stormcaller's Boon are all Common.

@Vulgard: Like Macndragon said, this is an invalid entry.
That last ability makes it into a really powerful card. I think it's Mythic Rare strong. I like it. Just onething: because black usually doesn't get card draw without penalty, you could make it "draw a card and lose 1 life."

Severe Beatings Red/green mana symbolRed/green mana symbol
Instant Rare
Until end of turn, noncreature sources you control have breakdown. (When a noncreature source you control deals damage to a creature this turn, it deals excess damage to the creature’s controller.)

(Breakdown is trample for any kind of damage.)

Old:
EITHER Grants a creature keyword to noncreature sources.
OR Isn't a permanent.
depending on if you count Vulgard's entry or not.

Izzet Boilerguard: Not blue in the slightest. Also not common because it can repeatedly damage creatures for cheap. Also, I'd like the artifact mana mechanic to be restricted to tapping nonequipment artifacts because people tap equipment when equipped creatures attack even though they shouldn't.

Deformed Cultist 2 mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Creature - Mutant Cleric Common
Unleash (You may have this creature enter the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it. It can't block as long as it has a +1/+1 counter on it.)
When Deformed Cultist enters the battlefield, you may move a counter from another target creature to it.
Each of its run-ins with the Simic is another opportunity to delight Rakdos.

Up: Eldrazi Elemental sounds a bit weird. I think it would be better if the p/t were switched on each side. It doesn't feel right if the stats get worse after transforming. Toughness increase to die trigger is also odd.

Foreboding of Terror 2 mana symbolBlack mana symbolBlack mana symbol
Sorcery Uncommon
Return target creature card from your graveyard to the battlefield tapped. It gains “When this creautre dies, put target card named Foreboding of Terror from your graveyard onto the battlefield tapped.”

Vials of Kruphix 5 mana symbolGreen mana symbolBlue mana symbol

At the beginning of your upkeep, put a wonder counter on Vials of Kruphix, then draw a card for each wonder counter on Vials of Kruphix.

Up: So, a more expensive, two-colour Aether Vial with built in card draw? I'm not complaining too much as Aether Vial is most powerful due to being able to play it early, and you have to put the counters on this one. Personally, I like it.

Righteous Fury 3 mana symbolRed/white mana symbolRed/white mana symbol
Enchantment Rare
When ~ ETB or at the beginning of your upkeep, put an oppression counter on ~.
Remove an oppression counter from ~: Target attacking or blocking creature gains double strike until end of turn.

When you cast Emrakul's Enforcer, create a 3/2 colorless Eldrazi Horror creature token.

Up: So this is really overpriced, even when you consider the fact it has rebound. Without using the strive ability (which, BTW, is a psuedo, not an actual keyword), this is 4CMC for an Inaction Injunction that you can rebound. It probably could be priced a 1 mana symbolWhite mana symbolBlue mana symbol.

Up: Technically, flash should be on the line above as it relates to casting while the others relate to being on the battlefield. Other than that, seems okay. Never liked pure two-brid costs. (First strike and haste in mono-blue, for example.) I personally only use it in activated abilities for off-colour abilities.

Keyla: I think she should be just an "Elf", I mean, look how horrible Neheb, the Eternal looks. Other than that, the card is pretty hard to play, I don't think anyone would try it out to be honest.

Old: An artifact creature.
New: Breaks improvise. (Improvise [i](Your artifacts can help cast this spell. Each artifact you tap after you're done activating mana abilities pays for 1 mana symbol.)

Up: So it can convert white and blue mana into each other. Kind of underwhelming. I think it could go with 1 mana symbol, Reveal ...
By the way, forecast is not a pseudo-keyword. It has actual ruling attached to it: Activate only from the hand, only once each turn and only during your upkeep.

Up: I don't really like that one random red symbol, especially since the ability it's attached to is basically mono-black. I also think this is generally a bit too complex for uncommon, especially since it's a creature you're likely never casting from your hand.

Tin Street Slasher Red mana symbolRed mana symbol
Creature - Goblin Rogue Rare
Hellbent - Tin Street Slasher gets +1/+0 and has first strike as long as you have no cards in hand.
Bloodrush - Red mana symbolRed mana symbol, Discard Tin Street Slasher: Target creature gets +2/+1 until end of turn. If you have no cards in hand, instead that creature gets +3/+1 and gains first strike until end of turn.
2/1

Old: Has bloodrush.

Up: Double red is odd in both costs, and you've got the bloodrush pseudo wrong (it can only target attackers). Card itself is cool, probably would make it 1 mana symbolRed mana symbol for both costs.

NEW: Can make poison counters.

UP: I don't really get why a Metalcraft ability would animate enchantments, and find "Enchantment Artifact Creature" a very odd typeline.

Fruit of the Golden Grove 4 mana symbolGreen mana symbol
Enchantment Rare
Converge-- Fruit of the Golden Tree enters the battlefield with a +1/+1 counter on it for each color of mana spent to cast it.
Constellation-- Whenever an enchantment enters the battlefield under your control, you may move any number of +1/+1 counters on permanents you control onto other permanents you control.

Old: Not a creature.
New: Cares about being enchanted.
