These are incredibly weird in mirror matches.
They are even weirder with Vexing Shusher.

Should be "Whenever a player casts a spell named || Whenever you cast a spell named"

Very nice :-)

And hell yeah, scry 10.
These have the potential to be hilarious

Rapture could get silly with Cast Through Time as the above person mentioned, but if you can do that, so worth it.
Show And Tell -> Omniscience -> Enter the Infinite -> Cast Through Time -> Rapture for best combo 2013. You heard it here first, folks.

If you're doing that, you just play two Raptures from hand and skip the need to wait for next upkeep.
Wow. Very interesting. I wonder if it would be worth raising the cost in order to ditch the "counter it" clause... I know you're trying to avoid letting the abilities stack, but I almost feel like that would be more fun.

Hm, these could also name other spells in their text. Like, "Whenever a player casts a spell named Rally or Research do x," if that makes sense. It would be an interesting synergy, although I'm not sure how players would feel about having such obvious deckbuilding instructions.

What if, to make it a bit crazier, you gave these all a supertype (like Arcane, but somthing else, we'll call their supertype Stack) and then you make the emblems read "Whenever you cast a Stack spell, you may counter it. If you do, [do whatever]."

You'd probably want to give them much more minor effects, but that way you have more choice (add another emblem OR counter it to use the existing emblems) and you don't need to run all of the exact same card, but instead just have a lot of Stack supertype cards, or whatever.

Maybe to avoid craziness issues you could word it like a replacement effect where only one emblem can be activated for one countered Stack spell (like how if you have two Totem Armor auras on a creature you only have to sac one to replace a destroy effect)

@Mown: True.

 @FZero: That combo is actually worse than Melira, Sylvok Outcast + Kitchen Finks + Carrion Feeder = infinite life.

@Keeper: Good idea. You do that.

@nuke: They're a cycle, not a mechanic. Could be developed into a mechanic, but that'd make them indeed weaker.

channel  I think having 8 "channels" could make for some cool mana combos 

But I try to avoid going to the surgeon...

I named that card channel because I HATE channel. It should die in a fire.

Fire only makes it stronger.

Fireball is a very weak card and you should feel bad.

Channel seems to love it, though.
