Oh good lord. So much for consensus. The feeling of power this gives me however...

A good seal should be something you don't always want to crack immediately, and the presence of the seal should complicate the board state as minimally as possible.
Parad - Better than straight up removal seal. Easier to play around.
Cato - I like how this gets better with time/other seals. A little complicated for common and might put some limits on what the rest of the cycle should look like.
Lily - The effects match up and it's neat how this does something before going (creating a nice tension of whether you want to use it up or not). It kills way too many things for a common though.
Knifethrower - Good for responding to graveyard hate, even when tapped out, so it could find use outside the set.
Shazzeh - This is prety much the perfect ability to go on a seal. Unfortunately I don't think they do False Demise type cards at common. Being able to undo removal without even leaving mana open is a bit much at common.
Fakeartist - a nice rattlesnake card that warns the opponent not to attack with their best guy. Might slow down the game just a little too much though.

I vote for somebody else entirely!
I kid, Knifethrower takes this one. Choose your criteria, you crazy shiver, you.

Unhallowed Pact was common, and that wasn't too long ago.

Make a black common instant that does NOT kill a creature. Something you would be happy to pick when drafting "spells".

Perish the Notion :2::b:
Instant
Target opponent reveals his or her hand. You choose a non-creature, non-land card from it. That player discards that card.

[Yes, this is _almost_ a reprint]

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Icy Whisper

Until end of turn, you may cast target instant card with converted mana cost 2 or less from your graveyard without paying its mana cost. If that card would be put into your graveyard this turn, exile it instead. Exile Icy Whisper.

Target creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn. Until end of turn, whenever a creature dies, put a +1/+1 counter on that creature.

Reveal the top five cards of your library. For each of those cards, you may pay 1 life and put that card in your graveyard. (Put the rest of the cards back in the same order.)

Counter target non-creature spell unless its controller pays 2 life.

(Edit: Renamed it from Excruciating Feedback. Harsh Reprimand sounds more like a black card.)

I dunno, doesn't it? It's like a weird cross of Orcish Spy, Index, and Mulch, and all those cards are common. I don't think it's doing anything that complicated or unsafe.
