Nailstorm should use Replicate, even if it's an Izzet mechanic.
Jouissance stops its own ability.
Whalecasting is dumb, but don't think that means I don't like it.
Mouth of Norn is probably not a design I would encourage.
Conspiracy in the Forum doesn't actually give its tokens Deathtouch.
Skyward Eye Circle seems very random.
Legendary Lands are bad and I don't like Kassus for encouraging it.
Grind the Blade is cool, but its kind of ambiguous how it works with e.g. Pyroclasm effects.
Fill With Beetles could also just have Replicate.

The difference between Replicate and Multikicker is that Replicate is more arduous to resolve on MTGO than Multikicker. The wording might be a bit cleaner with Replicate, but the play experience is worse. Similar story with Fill With Beetles.

Charm of the Passage could honestly say 3 or less and it would be fine. Compare to Smother and Unearth, or just Terminate.

All those cards have a really high power level though. I already think Passage is pretty strong, it would be insane if it said 3 or less. Even if it wouldn't be, not every YMtC card needs to be pushed as far as it would go.

<3. cards with non-optimized power levels are interesting to me. i've been playing a lot of limited recently. there's a nuance in making a card that you'd pick, like, fifth, that doesn't exist in making a card that you'd always pick first. that being said i do believe that Charm of the Passage is bonkers as-is

Omen of Orug-Tarr
Sorcery
Target creature gets -2/-2 until end of turn.
Add . Spend this mana only to cast a Demon spell.
Is the scar a portal, or a portent?

The Tolarian Warping
Enchantment — Saga
I — Draw a card.
II — Artifact spells cost less to cast this turn. You may remove a lore counter from The Tolarian Warping.
III — Create a colorless 3/3 Horror artifact creature token.

I'm not really sure that (not actually a) Charm of the Passage can be described as bonkers considering neither of its modes will ever be card or tempo positive.

Tolarian Warping probably can be described as bonkers. A cantripping 2-cost reducer seems way out of line at 3. Omen might be too, but it's more situational and matchup dependant so hard to say for sure.
It bothers me a bit that Bardo Warden doesn't hose, say, Hoogak or Gravecrawler.
Dread Captain is weird in that I would probably put it in White, Green and Red before black, but it still doesn't feel entirely out of pie. Like obviously it's almost just half a grave titan, but idk.

gole doula is weird but nice, I don't like chivalry (the card and the practice), I like twist the blade and if it was posted this week I'd consider nominating it but maybe someone else did in its time

good point about charm of the passage being card/tempo neutral
tolarian warping is bonkers i'd probably lower the reduction to
i also feel weird about chivalry (the card)
twist the blade never got nominated for anything but so much genius in general is left unappreciated in its time
