What are the repercussions of playing a land that's already tapped on the battlefield? Does it enter the battlefield again untapped, or does it go no-where and stay tapped? As it's a special action that doesn't use the stack, it seems like it would just stay where it is. I'm assuming you can "play" a non-land card that's on the battlefield, and it'll re-enter the battlefield because it moves then from the battlefield to the stack, and then back to the battlefield. Does this card work with cards in graveyards?

I think this might be a little too confusing as worded. It could probably do just as well by spelling things out a little better, like allowing you to pay a non-land card's mana cost to exile and then return it to the battlefield.

Hmm, you raise a good point. I think I'll change it to nonland.

Beyond that, I'm gonna keep the wording as is. This works with cards in graveyard, face-up cards in exile, cards revealed on top of libraries, and spells on the stack.

Hmm, I don't know how to word it now. Is it:

"you may play a face-up nonland card"
or
"you may cast a face-up nonland card"
or
"you may cast a face-up nonland permanent or card"

Also, should it say nontoken in there somewhere?

man i am the worst card designer

EDIT: It doesn't need to say nontoken as long as it doesn't say "permanent", since tokens aren't cards. I think I've got it.

A card I own ?

Just on the battlefield ?
Or also in exile and graveyard ?
How about the top card of my library ?
Or a removed-from-the-freaking-game-forever zone ?
Or sideboard ?
Or collection ?

Thankfully, this card doesn't let you get cards from outside the game. However, I don't like it getting spells from the graveyard. This card gives infinite Flash-back to your cards. Have this plus a Dark Ritual-type card for infinite mana. I think it should just work for face-up cards on the battlefield. You can start specifying specific zones, but once you start doing that, the card stops being elegant.

I think casting cards from the battlefield is the real appeal here, and the card should probably be pared down to just that, but it's awesome none the less.

But you can already cast stuff from the graveyard a million ways. I'm not a fan of messing with exile. I'm not sure if the cards in your libarary are "face up" even when revealed, and casting them would be cool, but not as cool as casting things from the field.
