This one's simmered for long enough. Judging:
melono - Minuere Trainee
A fine common with an interesting combination of types. The flavor is also very intriguing. I like the hints at the world these merfolk live on.
sdfkjgh - Favored Professor
Learning is comparable in power to drawing a card - Lessons aren't incredibly strong, but you always get the exact one that you need when you learn. Learning as magecraft would probably bump this up to mana value 4 alone, not to mention its other abilities. The sideboard ability would probably never be printed in real life - I'm not sure if being able to affect the sideboard in that way is allowed. Is it meant to let you play more than four of a Lesson, or let you put as many copies of every Lesson in your sideboard as you own? Also, it would need to be active from before the game starts - something like "As long as ~ is in your starting deck..."
ZephyrPhantom - Verdant Ragesinger
I like it! A 4/1 with first strike is strong in limited, but it's not an instant win, and it's vulnerable to basically any sort of removal. 2 cmc might be too low, but it's Gruul, it wants to attack, so there's counterplay.
Dahlia Black - Guardian Spellsword
I have to say... this one's confusing. I'm not sure what that ability is there for. You can already flash it in to block something, like any flash creature. Making it tap to block is strange as well. It might confuse new players, since thinking you need to tap to block is a common mistake among greenhorns.
viriss - Eddi "Fastpalm" Sprocket
Very fun and super flavorful, with adorable art. Unfortunately, the mechanics are pretty lackluster. Not only does your opponent have to be playing equipment that you want, but you can only attach them to Eddi, and only if you win a coin flip. Its use is just too narrow to justify running this in any deck. It's also a little strange that Eddi doesn't have a race...
