Fruit of the Golden Grove: Pretty nice card, but I think [Constellation] is supposed to be "Whenever [this permanent's name] or another enchantment enters the battlefield,..." >_<

Forgotten Sanctum
Land Uncommon
As long as Forgotten Sanctum is enchanted, it has "Tap symbol: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool."
Tap symbol: Add Colorless mana symbol to your mana pool.

Up: Not very exciting but ok. Not sure, but I think it could even be Common.

Since I found only 18 cards that can enchant an enchantment and only two of then do not have a negative or control effect, I'll just do an enchantment creature:

Graceblade Eidolon White mana symbol
Bestow 3 mana symbolWhite mana symbolWhite mana symbol
Enchanted creature gets +1/+1.
Graceblade Eidolon and enchanted creature get +2/+2 for each Aura attached to one of them.
As enchanted creature leaves the battlefield, attach all Auras attached to it to Graceblade Eidolon.
1/1

(Yes, if you enchant the Eidolon while it is an aura, that also boosts the enchanted creature. But any other wording would have been longer and more complicated.)

Alright, let's have a go at this

Eldritch Abolisher: I quite like the idea here but it seems as though it would be pretty broken with cards like Evolutionary Escalation

Tibalt, the Diabolical X mana symbolX mana symbolRed mana symbolRed mana symbol
Planeswalker - Tibalt Mythic Rare
+1 Loyalty: Each player discards a card, then draws a card. Tibalt, the Diabolical deals 2 damage to each player that doesn’t discard a red card or a Mountain this way.
0 Loyalty: Tibalt, the Diabolical deals damage equal to double his loyalty to target creature.
-4 Loyalty: Target player gets an emblem with “Whenever you tap a land for mana, that land deals 2 damage to you.”

UP: This is an interesting take on Tibalt. I like the repeated 2 theme, and think the symmetric discard that punishes opponents for not running mono-Red mana symbol is really neat. I guess my main problem is the X mana symbolX mana symbol which was mandatory, so...

Taking advantage of the new planeswalker rules for this design:

Ziz of Velis Vel Blue mana symbolRed mana symbol
Legendary Planeswalker - Ziz
Ziz is every planeswalker type.
+1 Loyalty: Until end of turn, Ziz of Velis Vel becomes a 1/4 colorless creature that's all creature types with haste and "1 mana symbol: Switch Ziz's power and toughness until end of turn." (It doesn't lose loyalty while it's not a planeswalker.)
-5 Loyalty: Target creature's controller sacrifices it. Reveal cards from the top of that player's library until a creature card is revealed. Put that card onto the battlefield under its owner's control.
Starting Loyalty 2

OLD: Involves sacrifice
NEW: Involves a real-world philosophy that in Magic terms would be Black mana symbol.

I was about to critique your card for not being a Tibalt planeswalker before reading the rest of your card . The first ability is useless 99/100 times in a draft format, although this is has some funny interactions with the newest Gids. I could see the 1 mana symbol in their power-switching cost be a 0 mana symbol, and the ult seems a bit underwhelming, but I think its alright for a 2 mana planeswalker.

Up: Convoke Eldrazi is a great idea but it falls completely flat without a way to remove defender from itself IMHO. A different drawback that would've let it still attack would've been better.

Giraffes you control have haste as long as you control three or more Giraffes.

Mist Goliath: This is a card that the more I looked at it and thought about, the more ridiculous it gets. Try to Doom Blade it and he steps into the mists to become an enchantment. Show a little Display of Dominance towards it, and he steps right back out of the mists as a creature. It's really tough to boost up with auras/equipments, which I feel fits perfectly for a Blue mana symbolGreen mana symbol card. That 6 CMC may be a bit high, but then again my opponent either has to kill it in combat or do some fancy footwork to make sure their kill spell lands. Although, it never stops being an enchantment so Abolish still connects... Still enjoy it a lot though.

Argh! Ninja'd! Welp... that's what I get for spelling out in detail what I did and why I did it in a place like this.

old entry
UP: I really like this mechanic, though not sure how powerful it is. This might be Mythic Rare material.

Spoiler:

I don't have any pets, so I chose favorite animal instead. Now there are quite a few other kinds of animals I like quite a bit, e.g. cats, owls, wolves, but I decided to go for deer this time.
I noticed that MTG doesn't even have deer as a creature type, and that cervids in MTG are apparently elk by default, so it's an elk now.

The name and mechanics of the card are inspired by King Aspen, the deer king from the My Little Pony comics, who bears the title "Heart of the Forest".

The flavor text is taken from David Clement-Davies' 1999 youth novel, Fire Bringer. I didn't want the My Little Pony flavor to dominate this card, so I added in a completely unrelated element.

OLD: Based on your family pet or favourite animal if no pets.

@Gorgonzola: Nice and simple. Mind you, mono-green starfish feels odd, especially with trample of all things.
@Tarvoc: Interesting, but triggering off of you being dealt damage seems more a White mana symbol thing. (or Black mana symbol under certain lore elements like the lich enchantments)

I'll make a card for each combo of prompts, as all three would be a very difficult, though interesting, challenge.

UP: I'm not sure about the rules here. When is the target declared? Before the mana is paid or after? It almost seems a tad strong in multiplayer. You'll usually target something that all other players except its controller also want to see dead, and then the other players will pay for you if they can, and you and them will all get life.

Up: I like it. Bypasses the issue with most auras of being easy to 2-for-1 due to returning the enchanted artifact to your hand.

You're supposed to rate the post above yours bruh...

Anyway, I like this, even if "Players can't draw cards" is easily the worst line of rules text ever. I think you can stack triggers here so you draw after the transform trigger passes, which is odd.

Up: Really interesting card. I like it. I think it's power level is somewhere between Vulshok Morningstar and Deathrender, so I guess it could also cost 3 mana symbol.

Up: Weeeeird. I usually associate ending phases with Blue mana symbol, so I'd like this more as White mana symbolBlue mana symbol (especially since this can indirectly counter spells) but this is a nice idea.
