    Instant
    Telepathic blast deals 5 damage to any target and 2 damage to you.

    Quite doable:

    1CC Tibalt R
    Legendary Planeswalker- Tibalt
    +1: Tibalt deals 1 damage to you.
    -1: Target player discards a card then draws a card.
    -3: Target player discards three cards then draw three cards.
    {{1}}

    1CC Jace U
    Legendary Planeswalker- Jace
    +1: Look at the top card of target player's library.
    -2: Draw a card.
    {2}

    1CC Teyo W
    Legendary Planeswalker- Teyo
    0: Target creature gets +0/+2 until the beginning of your next upkeep.
    -1: Put a +1/+1 counter on target creature or a loyalty counter on another target planeswalker.
    {{1}}

    1CC Nissa G
    Legendary Planeswalker- Nissa
    +1: You may shuffle a card from your graveyard into your library.
    -2: Untap target land.
    -7: Untap target land. It becomes a 7/7 Elemental creature with trample until end of turn.
    {{1}}

    1CC Devrael B
    Legendary Planeswalker- Devrael
    +1: Discard a card.
    -0: Target player reveals a card at random from their hand.
    -2: Name a nonland card. Target player reveals their hand and discards all cards with that name.
    {{2}}

    I think it's still unlikely we'll see this yet, but I think it's fairly certain we'll see one or two 2cc planeswalkers.

    Huh, I thought trinket text was "Sac to draw a card". Essentially the artifact form of a cantrip spell. I'll probably change my response.

    Alright:

    Forestsguy- Liliana Allegiant
    This is definitely toned down from a mythic planeswalker, but the build is very similar to those. Giving it a -4 and a -6 gives it something like a mini ultimate and a true ultimate. Neither ability is back breaking, and the +1 isn't either (considering how much easier this is to interact with than Ill-Gotten Inheritance is). The danger here is only in the inherent power of versatility. This just might be uncommonable.

    Subject16- Kaya, Orzhov Fugitive
    I like blinking planeswalkers as much as the next guy, but we have Venser and Aminatou already, so I don't know that we need Kaya to add that to her wheelhouse. The main thing that makes this feel uncommonable is my least favorite thing about it: the first ability doesn't hate the opponent's graveyard. If I were reworking it, I'd make it eat from any graveyard with the +1, cut the -2, and leave the ult. The ult isn't overpowered, but it is very strong, and also doesn't feel extremely uncommonable considering that it's a 3 ability walker.

    Graffd02- Dack Fayden, Master Thief
    Domestication is no small thing to do at uncommon, so giving it a plan B is pretty big game. The -1 can get you some pretty sweet card advantage, but it's nothing compared to some existing card-draw planeswalkers. This build feels promising, but the Domestication ability is just a bit over the top. I'd make it take something with power 2 or less.

    Legend- Garruk, Wildslord
    Once again, we have an optional sorcery ult: Desert Twister. Like Dack, once you use the -2, you can no longer use the twister, but unlike Dack, this has a 0 ability and costs six. It's the cost that makes this more uncommonable than anything. Still, like Dack with Domestication, Garruk gets Desert Twister plus other options without any additional cost. I'm a fan of desert twister, so I won't penalize it for being out of color pie, but it's is still dangerously strong and versatile for an uncommon, and once again feels slightly closer to rare.

    VolrathTheRisen- Lovecraft, Scion of Providence and Ignus, Imp Pyrokinetic
    So Howard is Awakening Zone. Its much easier to remove than Awakening Zone, so that doesn't make it non-uncommonable. I like the mini-ult works with this, and I think it fees about right. Despite being very strong if left unchecked, this dies to Shock or Wind Drake, and unlike most of the other cards here, you can't get your value out of it unless you let it sit for a few turns. This vulnerability makes it feel like the most uncommonable card I've seen yet. I also enjoy the double meaning of Providence.

    For Ignus: This could just as easily be a Chandra. I wonder if you intended to leave it non-legendary. It makes sense for Ignus but less for Howard. This feels right. It's 1RR for a Prodigal Pyromancer that can eventually (but quite predictably) hit everything. The cost, loyalty, and ability balance all feels right. It's good, and would be worth more than most uncommons, but it feels decidedly uncommon. What I was really looking for here is cards that looked at the mechanical strengths and weaknesses of the planeswalker type and took those into consideration to make an uncommon version. This and Howard seem like the ones what really used the inherent fragility of planeswalkers to balance out uncommon designs.

    Most of these feel like they're just on the verge between uncommon and rare. I think Volrath got the most uncommonable ones with Forestsguy coming closest.

    (no and no, but I think original Tibalt is pretty close to right for uncommon.)

    Give it say 3 hours. I'll judge whether or not there are any more entries.

    Suffice it to say, though, M_J's town play was very bad.

    You keep saying stuff like this, and I'm not going to say you're exactly wrong, but if you're town, your town play hasn't been particularly strong either considering on how thoroughly convinced you are at the guilt of innocents.
