Right I have a bunch of different sets on my drives that I'm probably never going to finish because I can't find card images for them. Also don't really have the time to do the full fake spoiler season simulation I was intending to do for some of them. So instead here's a big thread that I'm just going to post things to every so often.

Here's a card from a set I started back in August:

I don't like the phrasing on this, but I had a moment of "What's the most ridiculous effect you could put on a blue card in multiplayer?" which slowly also turned into "How do you get derpy sea creatures through?"

Hand attack, combat, removal. Maintain your card advantage, become Delirious today.

It took me like four reads to understand what the first thing did. Seems needlessly complex.

The second one is a neat idea, but I'm not sure I like how it gets weaker with the more players there are. What if it let you draw for each player who had a thing go to the graveyard that turn?

Holy crap something with a choice for card artwork!

Controlling the ebb and flow of combat is super important.

... As is card velocity.

Myriadrune, though a neat idea, should have a more impressive body. Essence of the Wild is cool because it means you get an army of 6/6s. Turning all your creatures into 3/3s is much less impressive, especially at the point in the game where you're spending eight mana.

Sustained Stormfront feels spectacularly random. Why are enchantments included? Why does it only trigger on the third spell? Why two cards? I'd say stick either just to instant/sorceries, or go full on noncreatures, and perhaps let it trigger on every spell (that it cheapens, again either nonpermanents or noncreatures) for one card at a time. For colour reasons, it should also discard then draw rather than vicey versy.
