I decided to have an effect to reduce the commander's cost, especially to get around the "commander tax" of paying for each time you cast your commander from the command zone. That seemed a little narrow, so I also made it a Tome...card draw is always useful in EDH.

Derevi's Tome
Artifact (U)
Your commander costs up to less to cast from the command zone.
, : Draw a card.

Originally designed for Archenemy, but works in any set where you have more than one opponent.

Colloquial Contingency
Enchantment
If one or more opponents would be required to make a choice, instead vote among the available options. Your vote counts twice in the case of a tie. (Choice is defined here as any card or effect that uses the phrase "choose.")

Does it have to be for a specific supplemental product, or can I just say "it's for one of those multiplayer formats"?

As with last round, it is possible I misinterpreted your card in some way. Feel free to comment if you feel I have and I will re-evaluate. I had to dust off the Comp rules for a couple of these. Particular kudos to those that took the time to try and come up with a new supplement. It didn't necessarily bump up your card in the ranks, but I applaud your effort.

Dudibus - in 1-pack magic, you don't lose from having an empty deck, so there needs to be some ruling on it. However, I agree, I probably should have left it as the draw clause.

Cool, a good ranking!

I did deliberately leave the color weight at a single :w: because this is being designed for Commander, a format that pushes players towards multicolored decks almost exclusively. It didn't seem like I was dealing with an effect that should be difficult in tricolor, so I didn't want to mirror Wrath of God's :2::w::w: which can be a little difficult once you get past 2 colors with anything but the most tryhard mana bases.
