Cards wanting to swap
I want to keep the decks cmc low and still semi budget friendly round $20-$30 per card.

A Dragon after my own heart. I love it, Mj3913.
Choose target creature you control and target creature an opponent controls and put a fate counter on both of them. As long as they both have a fate counter, they each have "Whenever a counter of any kind would be placed on this creature, put the same type and number of counters on the other creature. Whenever this creature gains or loses an ability, the other creature gains or loses that same ability if able. Whenever this creature's power or toughness changes, the other creature's power and toughness changes by the same amount."
So let's say your opponent has a Hydra Broodmaster and you have a Consecrated Sphinx. You cast Shared Fate, putting a fate counter on both of them. Now, your opponent with the Hydra Broodmaster happens to cast an Archetype of Endurance, giving Broodmaster Hexproof. BAM Sphinx has Hexproof. Oops. So, the next turn they sink into Broodmaster's Monstrosity ability to grow it and make 6x 6/6s. WHA-BAM Sphinx just got 6x +1/+1 counters as well!
Nice little "politics matters" kind of play. Not sure how useful it'd actually be, but it'd certainly be fun.
Yeah the wording of the card could be done better. I'll agree with that right off the bat. That's what R&D is for, though ;)
Make another card that sounds fun to play, even if it's uses and applications are arguably limited.

So in that vein:
a la Alms Collector:
Creature - Fox Cleric
Whenever a player searches their library, they may pay , if they don't you draw a card.
I'd like a mediocre draft card that could see competitive play in some format, or would be good in commander.

If you want broken cards just look to the cmdr precon cmdr's.
But the one that comes to mind immediately isn't a cmdr precon cmdr. Narset, Enlightened Master. You really dont need to try hard to make this one busted.
Animar, Soul of Elements is another one that comes to mind. Pretty easy to build around it's one cause its busted.
But all the tutors busted in cmdr. This singleton format was designed without tutors in mind.

Instead of using Narset, Parter of Veils to prevent other players from drawing, I'd use Consecrated Sphinx with your wheeling spells and see the world burn. You may want to add something to remove hand size limits, tho :P

"Hug It Out" ? "We love you to death" ?
Four colors means your build options are actually pretty diverse, tho group hug is always at least a sub-theme. I run a landfall deck with them, so Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Sakura-Tribe Scout, and landfall triggers in addition to group hug. Recently added Chulane, Teller of Tales for landfall but also more card draw.
If you go heavy on draw with group hug stuff like Temple Bell / Dictate of Kruphix / Well of Ideas but also cards like Rhystic Study and Consecrated Sphinx, you can potentially win out of nowhere with Psychosis Crawler and to a lesser extent Chasm Skulker.
If you want more group hug stuff, there's no end of enchantments (Aurification, Fight or Flight, Dissipation Field) and artifacts. (and you can put Zedruu the Greathearted in there!) Lots of new-ish group hug cards like Coveted Jewel that get passed around the table.
Lastly, since you're currently emphasizing 'attack them not me' cards like Edric and Gahjji, I'd consider Marisi, Breaker of the Coil and staple cards like Assault Suit. Obviously, Marisi is a little more aggressive / less group hug... If you want to go that route you could throw in Dictate of the Twin Gods or similar.

Did you end up fully cutting Consecrated Sphinx ? Like, you would never consider it again? Asking for my own curiosity!

Androysious, I'm on the fence about the Consecrated Sphinx . There's already plenty of card draw in the deck, so I'm not sure what I'd cut to make room for the card. My other beef with the sphinx is that it solely benefits me instead of causing harm to my opponents. When Nekusar, the Mindrazer comes out the goal of the game immediately becomes making my opponents draw more cards, so it isn't conducive to the strategy to have something that draws me more cards than I may be able to use in a turn. Thanks so much for the suggestion, I'll be sure to let you know if I include the sphinx and how it performs.
