--Major props go to charlequin and members of the Rumor Mill on MTGSalvation. They found and organized this list faster and more efficiently than I could.--

Allons-y!

The words "elf" and "elves" both have the result "0"!!!

something is wrong, because "scarecrow" gives me a result of "0" too....
Zero "Atog", zero "Vampire".

Looks like an average set.
The words "elf" and "elves" both have the result "0"!!!

No they don't, elf has a result of 23 and elves has 3.

edit to your edit: scarecrow has a wopping 38
0 harvest
27 elemental
0 Changeling
0 Vinebred, 0 vine
0 Brion, 0 stoutarm
Something is wrong with the Orb, because we know of certain card names and words from those card names aren't showing up in my search.. unless I'm doing something horribly wrong...
Neither [C]Mistmeadow Skulk[/C] nor [C]Thornweald Archer[/C] nor [C]Phosphorescent Feast[/C] are going to be in the set, since "converted" displays as 0 and "deathtouch" displays as 0 and "symbol" displays as 0.

EDIT: The Orb of Insight is in fact broken, since "flying" displays as 0 and "haste" displays as 0.
Actually...

Now confirmed: There is one card with "Graven" in its name, and the same one probably has "Cairns," since it also showed up exactly once. Also, there are two instances of "Mistmeadow" and one instance of "Skulk." No results for "Thornweald."

For more information, visit the Orb of Insight.
Funny, 'Kithkin' produces 21 and 'Elemental' yields a whooping 27.

Edit: that was to the second post.

Edit Edit: 'Spawn' yields 2, but it's definitely not a keyword and probably a name reference. Darn. Bummer on 'Harvest' too.
5 Avatars. Cycle confirmed.
The words "elf" and "elves" both have the result "0"!!!

something is wrong, because "scarecrow" gives me a result of "0" too....

Yeah, there's definetly something wrong, because I got 38 from "scarecrow".

Good job reading the thread.
THE MOST IMPORTANT:

Enter the code at the bottom.

I know that this would be the obvious answer; I've done that. It tells you that you have to add the code if you don't. Every time I run a query, I enter the code shown at the bottom, and I still get a result of 0.
1: Oona
6: Legendary
Maybe I'm doing it wrong, but I get 0 for "mistmeadow", "Cairns", and "Graven".
Are you getting the "this code is invalid" message?
Planeswalker:

0. I LOSE!

Edit: AND I was sarnathed. Ouch.
Are you getting the "this code is invalid" message?

Nope, it's searching and showing me the result as 0. I've tried in in Firefox and IE just to be sure. I even attempted to use the code off of the article's image (that one was invalid).
All of my findings are posted in the OP. I will be re-checking everyone's findings eventually and adding them above.

No Planeswalkers.
No Tribal.
No surpise.

Allons-y!

There are no Constructs, which would seem to be the most likely type for that weird four-legged robot thing if it isn't a weird Scarecrow.
Well, the solution is simple:

Don't use the orb, it hates you.

That must be it. What have you been telling it about me, Insulter :evillaugh I'll just try it on a different PC or give up for today and just read everyone else's posts regarding the Orb.
In other news, it isn't working for me either.

I got 38 for Scarecrow.

Also, two for Mistmeadow, one for Skulk, one for Graven, one for Cairns, zero for Thornweald.
It hates me
Did you type in the special code?

This. It isn't broken.

Oddly enough, I got 38 results for Scarecrow, but only 3 results for Treefolk.

And far more interestingly:

Seems Artifact creatures aren't coming back, then.
Actually, it is broken. Even with the code.

I got the same thing. But since this is essentially now a duplicate thread, we should probably discuss this stuff in the other one.
seems the ord just doesnt like some people......works fine for me
