What if - random, possibly bad idea - we had a little “bundle”? Like so:
Adventurer - If you can’t already, you can design creature, instant, and sorcery cards, but only if they’re on an Adventure card. Also grants use of Adventure.
That way, it doesn’t require all the masteries, but is limited to adventures? Could also be applied to bestow and similar.
Personally, I don’t mind paying a bunch of points to get the requirements or whatever - they’re complex keywords - but it might be a little tidier/neater?
I'd honestly be down to do something similar to that for both Adventure and Bestow to make them more accessible. Are there any other overly costly keywords this could apply to? (I'd be looking at things that cost 4-5 points just for the basic keyword functionality, just so we're clear.)
Of course, if anyone's opposed, I'll leave it open for a week or so to gauge interest.
i'd say still at least have Creature Mastery as a requirement (since they are creature cards with bells and whistles)
overall my change would probably be to just throw out Multityper instead. pretty much everything that uses it is already investing points (Twin-Souled or Split Cards or Aftermath or Chieftan etc), and imo Adventure should still be Creature+Spell+Adventure.
this particular scenario is weird because the achievement points are there to allow for these more complicated starts and those are intentionally being removed.

I’m personally indifferent, though if we do go “Adventurer” bundle route, I’d say that should still cost a decent sum of points (Perhaps 3? 1-2 lower than each separate buy but with restrictions). Abolishing Multityper has it’s merits but I think it’s fine as is, but with the bundles it becomes useless shy of Enchantment Creatures and Artifact Creatures (or Land Creatures if we’re going that direction) so it is something to consider.
Another thing to consider is the feeling of the game - we all know we’re all buddy-buddy here, and since there’s nothing at stake I don’t think anyone really cares, but then it may undermine some vets who think “What the Hell, why is everything so cheap nowadays?” (to paraphrase things no one’s said yet). Though I do find certain role reversals amusing in a way.

I do think the package perk should require an additional mastery but it is a good point that these expensive combinations encourage you to reincarnate and not just sit on one character. I think I'll keep pointsinks on a tenative shelf unless there is a stronger push for them.
How do cards with ninjutsu work in your command. Is it the ninjutsu cost the CMC or the middle of the two?
If the card is an Artifact, Creature, Enchantment, Instant, Land, Planeswalker, Sorcery, or other card type that normally is part of the deck itself, then an amount of mana equal to the card's CMC is reserved for this card.
