I like it, but I feel that as is it would be costed to high to see any real play. I'm thinking a cmc of 6 is really the greatest you'd want.
Granted, as is, I think it is balanced, just that it would be underplayed.

In short. I like it. I want the cmc to go down, so some numbers would need tweaking.

I wish this was a Pox throwback.  You pick four numbers that add to 16, an opponent picks the order, and everyone does the actions.

I really like the mechanism here of you picking the numbers and an opponent picking the order.  Like, really.  It's making me think of other "collaborative" effects.

6 mana for "target player sacrifices 5 permanents, discards 5 cards, and loses 5 life" sounds about right to you?

 

120.6. Some effects replace card draws.

 

why are you here when NGA exists and is just better

At that point it's a 6 mana Wit's End.

I can choose zero right?

There are many good cards in magic that are underplayed, so I'm not heavily bothered by that being your only complaint. As it stands though, seven seems a more reasonable cost given its potential utility.

It's more vicious to let the opponent have the choice, in my mind.

At that point it's a 6 mana Wit's End.

That is my intent.

I like the idea. I just think 15 is unnecessarily large. raz's 5/5/5 example shows why. Compare it to Rite of Ruin, which offs 6 permanents and is symetrical. Unfortunately, it's difficult to balance at almost any number. 10 seems better, and even that seems big. I'm also not sure if the split is going to matter all that often. It's almost always best to split it evenly... I think.

It could be turned into an X cost I suppose, so the more mana you pour in the higher the number(s) you can use. A little less appealing and a little more appealing, depending on the players, but that would probably balance it while still allowing for high values like 15, though less often.
