    Edit: for improved play patterns.

    Devastating Plague
    2BB
    Enchantment - Aura [Mythic]
    Enchantment creature
    The enchanted creature has “at the beginning of your upkeep, sacrifice this creature. If you do, create two tokens that are copies of Devastating Plague and attach them to two different creatures not enchanted by a permanent named Devastating Plague.”

    Edit: Better IIW - Mono colour matters

    Well, I have ideas for both of these:

    Wedge design:
    Purify the Profane
    WWBR
    Sorcery
    Escalate W or (B/R)(B/R) - This card costs W or (B/R)(B/R) more for each mode chosen beyond the first.
    Choose one or more, you may make the same choice more than once:
    -Exile a creature of your choice with the greatest CMC on the battlefield
    -Exile an artifact of your choice with the greatest CMC on the battlefield
    -Exile an enchantment of your choice with the greatest CMC on the battlefield.
    -Exile a planeswalker of your choice with the greatest CMC on the battlefield

    The idea is that this would be part of a cycle. It’s very much centered on its ‘white’ abilities but it showcases how it gets to be ‘better’ by overlapping with its enemy colours.

    For multi-coloured saga:
    Mirridin Beseiged
    3UBG
    Enchantment - Saga
    1: Each player gets a poison counter.
    2: Proliferate, then create a 1/1 green insect creature token with infect for each poison counter on each player.
    3: Creatures you Control with infect get +1/+1 until end of turn.

    Rally the Masses

    Sorcery
    For each creature you control with a power or toughness of 1 or less, create a token that’s a copy of it.

    Ritual of the Host

    On infuse: I think that the mechanic would work better if it was reversed to work like an Evoke variant for enchantments. Essentially make it:

    Infuse - Cost: You may cast aura for its infuse cost. If you do, sacrifice it after it enters the battlefield.

    It’s a bit cleaner since it doesn’t result in cards changing their card types, which pushes down the complexity particularly at common. For effects that you want to be instants you can just give the Aura flash.

    As for the card itself, I think that it’s a bit to complex for what it does. Giving +/- stats while also putting -1/-1 counters on the card it’s enchanting just makes it confusing for what it’s actually doing. I think it would be cleaner to just have this directly put counters on the target instead of dealing damage with Wither (a bit of a bend in red but likely exceptable in the context of the block) and have it give no P/T modification (or only modify power). It’s a fine idea, but it needs some refinement and cleaning.

    Gideon, Knight of Sacrifice
    2WWW
    Legendary Planeswalker - Gideon
    +2: Until your next turn, target creature can’t attack or block and it’s activated abilities can’t be activated.
    0: Gideon becomes a 5/5 Human Knight Creature with indestructible until the end of the turn. Prevent all damage that would be dealt to Gideon this turn.
    -14: Exile Gideon and all permanents target player controls.

    No.

    Alchemists second ability triggers when a creature is put into a graveyard from an opponent’s library. This is different from Kalitas’s ability, which creates a replacement effect when a creature dies (is put into a graveyard from the battlefield).

    Basically, the two abilities are completely unrelated, even though they both produce 2/2 Zombie creatures.

    Borborygmos REALLY Enraged
    5RRGG
    Legendary Creature - Cyclops
    Trample
    When Borborygmos REALLY Enraged deals combat damage to a player, you may throw any number of permanents you control onto the table from a distance of at least 3 ft (1m). Destroy each permanent thrown this way, and each permanent that is both touching one of the thrown permanents when it stops moving and shares at least one card type with it.
    7/7

    Edit: Thought of a more fun version.

    Borborygmos, the Strongest
    4RRGG
    Legendary Creature - Cyclops
    Trample
    When Borborygmos enters the battlefield, you may challenge target opponent to an arm wrestle. If you win, Borborygmos gains protection from Non-Creatures that player controls. If that opponent wins, exile Borborygmos (a player must be physically able to arm wrestle to be a legal target).
    8/7

    IIW: CMC of 3.

    May as well get the judgin’ going:

    Totallyhaywire:

    I think this card is way too wordy. It does weird things of making things different colours, making colourless things uncounterable but more expensive... it feels like two or three solid ideas for cards mashed together for an inelegant result. That being said, I think the component ideas of this card could be quite interesting on their own, and I’ll also add that this is the only appropriately costed entry.

    Cheetos:

    Yeah, this is underpriced for draw 3 plus mind control plus conditionally winning the game. I also feel like the mind control effect is mechanically disconnected from the other two effects. Apart from this disconnect and the fact that this is massively under costed, I really like this though. The hand size as a win con is interesting and as I said I would love this if it wasn’t for the random mind control tacked on.

    Mergatroid Jones:

    I like the cleanness of the effect but I think that as an instant this card would lead to a lot of unfun moments. All of a sudden, as soon as Your Mardu opponent hits 5 mana, you are all of a sudden in a really bad spot if you don’t play countermagic. You can’t try to win, since your opponent could just cast this and win in response. I personally think that this effect is interesting, but would work better on a Sorcery (which forces you to actually loose the game rather than just wait for your opponent to try to kill you), or on a creature (which then your opponent can at least kill to try to get back into the game).

    I’m going to give to cheetos with an Honorable Mention to Mergatroid.

    Up next: UN4 is on Ravnica. Design a silver border legendary creature for a guild. Use Unstable as a reference.

    I’m not sold on Unstable (the mechanic). It sounds like just having ‘at the beginning of your upkeep’ trigger but with extra steps. Yeah, it does trigger ‘when something else ETB’s’ and cast triggers, but I’m not convinced it’s worth the extra complexity.

    As for the card itself. It’s broken. 2 life a turn for free ramp is way too effecient, especially since any deck that runs his will he trying to kill you before the life loss is relevant. Storm in particular loves this card, since it is a ramp card early that continues to contribute to the decks storm count. Probably leads to a T2 kill in storm in modern and makes legacy storm more consistent.

    I’m any case:

    Mechanic: Frost Counters (when a permanent with 1 or more frost counters on it would become untapped, instead remove a frost counter from it).

    Frost counters are a new type of counter with innate rules meaning. They create a replacement effect whenever a permanent with one or more frost counters on it would become untapped, which causes a counter to be removed instead of that permanent untapping.

    Blood Frost
    1UR
    Enchantment
    When a non-basic land is tapped for any amount of mana, put that many frost counters plus one onto it. (When a permanent with one or more frost counters on it would become untapped, instead remove a frost counter from it.
    ).

    Exile target creature card from your graveyard. Create a token that’s a copy of that creature, except that is a black spirit and has “When this creature dies, exile target creature card from your graveyard and create a token that is a copy of it, except that it is a black spirit and has this ability”.

    Return to sender is a fine card, if a little narrow. I do think that it's a little awkwardly worded. I'd maybe push up a little bit in CMC to just make it spells that target a player, rather than its controller.

    Mysterious Disappearance
    W
    Instant
    Exile target creature. It's controller investigates (they create a colourless Clue artifact token with '2, Sacrifice this: Draw a card'
    "No body, no signs of forced entry, the doors locked from the inside. A perfect crime. But ah-HA! The killer was foolish enough to leave his cigarette butt on the floor."
