"Why are numbers beautiful? It's like asking why is Beethoven's Ninth Symphony beautiful. If you don't see why, someone can't tell you. I know numbers are beautiful. If they aren't beautiful, nothing is."

Nice, I really like this. My only complaint is that we know the name of Kari Zev's flagship -- the Dragon's Smile.

This is very much a Timmy card, which isn't a problem in and of itself but it's just a little win-more for my taste. You need to cast your 7-mana and have 10 power worth of creatures and your opponent needs to not have instant speed removal. Even if that all happens, if your opponent has even a single thopter then this is still probably worse than a 7-mana Time Warp. The only way this is really good is if you connect with it, in which case it's a 7-mana Time Stretch, which is extremely good, but also you've already slammed in for 12 so your opponent is probably dead.

Definitely the most unique of the submissions -- new artifact subtype and new mechanic all at once. My biggest quibble with this is that it keeps trading the creature back and forth based on whether It of a Different Sky is a creature and then separately transforms the creature to and from being a 3/4 if It of a Different Sky dies, which is a lot to keep track of. I definitely think there should be some kind of "implantation counter" for tracking purposes.
