I don't think that that's the kind of compliment they're looking for.

I designed an Instant Creature once.  It had Flash and Flashback.

I'll borrow a design I recently saw for this thread.

Apparently you don't know how your fake card works.  You only control an instant or sorcery while it's on the stack; having it in any other zone doesn't give you control of it.  If you cast Epic Experiment with X being, let's say 5, Epic Experiment will resolve and leave behind at most five instant or sorcery spells on the stack (assuming, of course, the stack was empty to begin with).  Then while you still have priority before the stack starts to resolve, cast Peer into Minds.  Peer will resolve, letting you draw five cards because of the five instants and/or sorceries left on the stack that you control.

109.2. If a spell or ability uses a description of an object that includes a card type or subtype, but doesn't include the word "card," "spell," "source," or "scheme," it means a permanent of that card type or subtype on the battlefield.

That's quite flavourful. It really gets the flavourful point across through use of mechanics, costing and stats.

Handy if you can combo it with cards like Erratic Explosion or Paralletric Feedback somehow.

Faithless Traitor
Creature - Nightmare Rogue
If a Nightmare you control would deal damage to a creature or player, it deals that much damage to its owner instead.
Born from dreams of abandonment and death.

Making cards for this game is painful.  It's like, you make a card that could actually be interesting, and then turn all the neat quirks into things that make no sense and end up with something that's just... bad.

If ~ is in your opening hand, begin the game with it on the stack.
You may pay :wbm::urm::bgm::rwm::gum: rather than pay ~'s mana cost.
Replace 15 cards in your library at random with cards you own from outside the game.  Shuffle the cards in your hand into your library and draw that many cards.

You don't lose cause you reveal it by discarding.
in a format/environment where poison counters are irrelevant it's a decent madness or reanimation enabler.

Vinecrush

Sorcery

Destroy target artifact. Search your hand, graveyard and library and exile every artifact that shares a name with the destroyed artifact. Then shuffle your library.
Very good to destroy your opponent's artifacts, specially when you don't have copies of it yourself. Also good deck-thinning.


Transparency 
Sorcery

Reveal your hand.
I once heard a story where the ChannelFireball team was playtesting standard decks after AVR was released. I remember turn one, one guy probed his opponent, saw what he had and conceded. I could imagine this card making your opponent concede after he sees all your cool stuff.
