These are pretty neat! A bit OP though on these, especially the tutor. I'd up it to and make them take out 3 cards.
My latest set is in public beta! KOR - Kingdoms of Rabiah - Check it out! Like Uncle Istvan? Like Rabiah? Like Homelands? Then check out theScion's Parade of Planeswalkers Got Flavor? Throw it at me in my Gauntlet: theScion vs YMTC thread. Can the combined powers of YMTC defeat our favorite rainbow-faced card crafter?

Yeah definitely, what does it matter if they take out one card if you have a playset of what you need in your deck. I'd make it 4 actually as to give them a chance to remove something completely, because tutoring for 1 is insane. Also, giving the opponent choice feels somewhat more blue than black.

Refractive Crystal is interesting. I've always liked Bloom Tender's ability.

Meteor Crater is already bad, since it doesn't do anything if you don't have any colored permanents. Your EtBT version should at least have the option to tap for colorless mana.

Mindrend Tutor is a cool idea, but I agree with theScion. It's just too powerful.

Have them search any number of cards with the same name and exile them. That way, you don't hose a Commander's answers to your Iona/Progenitus, but still retain enough utility to say "no Show and Tell for you!".
Psst...Outside of Vintage and EDH, nobody plays one-ofs.

Oh I'm sorry. I was unaware that everyone adhered to the same deckbuilding principles, or even played the same format. How silly of me ...
