Rules of the game: The first player picks an instant.
I'll pick... Lightning Bolt!

The next player must create the creature or planeswalker that would be casting this instant. Then, they give another instant.

So let's start with lightning bolt.

You might as well include sorceries -- no harm in that!

I really like the idea of this game, to be honest! It's actually pretty clever. <:

Convincing mirage is an enchantment, though still a spell. We should make it instants, sorceries and enchantment.

Talrand's Miragemage Blue mana symbolBlue mana symbol

I think your attempt to capture cycling made this card a wee bit too good. I also dislike how the "one attacker" thing isn't symmetrical; very stifling to your opponents, and perhaps too dangerous.

Amateur Explorer Green mana symbol

When Amateur Explorer enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a basic Forest card, reveal it, and put it into your hand. If you do, shuffle your library.

It's a commonly-held belief that zombies eat brains; in truth, only the most dangerous are that discriminate.

Eldrazi Thoughtbringer - A human Eldrazi?? That doesn't sound right, otherwise, an interesting idea, sounds like it could be a little OP but I suppose with a CMC of 10 and 0 power perhaps not...

Master of Mold: A fog every turn is ridiculous, especially since it lasts until the next turn for whatever was affected, as well. Just never block, and you have an unstoppable wall of fog (not this guy, though). Further, this also prevents noncombat damage, so you can't even burn them to death! This is far too strong. This needs to sacrifice itself to not be broken.

Touhou: You're probably thinking of Yukari from Touhou, but that's not one of the things I'm referencing (though I figured you'd think it was Stick out your tongue). It's a reference to Elbridge Gerry, from which the word "gerrymander" derives its origin -- to "gerrymander" is to manipulate voting district boundaries to favor certain groups. The concept has been portrayed in Magic before (Gerrymander, no way), but not in black-bordered form.
