It's nice that they tie this story back to the original Orzhov villain from the selesnya story.

Honestly, and hear me out, I don't think that Gideon's gonna die due to Bolas'. my prediction is that Gids dies thanks to the black blade eating his soul. It would make sense and have a bit of irony to it, since it's a man whose whole thing is morality and righteousness die to the one sinful thing he has done to end a multiverse level threat.
Also, second weird theory, I think that shield boy may actually be from Vryn, just because of how the clothes look in the pic and comparing it to clothes from other cards related to Vryn (think lots of dull colors and leathers). Which would also make sense, since his spark may igniting from almost dying in a war would be a suitable back story and would make a good roundabout to Vryn and finishing Jace's story where it began.

Honestly the biggest issue was that Kamigawa just had weak mechanics and the good cards with those mechanics weren't... good enough. Honestly some of the coolest cards with offering were also super overpriced for what they did ( Patron of the Moon for example could've been like a 4 drop, for example) and Bushido was interesting but like the fact that none of them had Trample kinda ruined it.

Why not have them do partner with and each of give them abilities involving doubling damage or combat (two swords) and creating a defensive front (pole arm)?

Honestly I like the idea. Also adding in the fact that they're samurai lieutenant could lead to an interesting cards.
Maybe something like them each giving an ability? Or having one enter and create a token that's the other?

So two things:
The cost is too damn high for a single card tutor that can only tutor for a single card. Maybe lower it to 4 and give it a ability (similar to General Tazri ). While I do agree that allowing for search of more than one card could become seriously degenerate, especially since the card can hit both graveyard and library, but I think you can reduce the cost. Or raise the power to a 3/4.
The issue with the exile clause is it might not work out the way you think. Primarily it's the fact that cards that work like that ( Glittering Wish , Cunning Wish , etc) don't actually grab cards removed from the game by effects such as Path to Exile . They only grab cards signified by something like a sideboard.
What might work out better is if it sent the card to the command zone and allowed you to cast it any time it was legal, then had a five colored ability to send it back to the command zone.

I feel like Kumena, Tyrant of Orazca would be better than Zegana in this deck.

triproberts12 I use it in lieu of those cards too because I can't afford about half of those cards because some of those cards are like $100+
That's why they include it. Not because it's a great card (it's not, most people here acknowledge that), not because wizards are villains trying to fool the poor players of the game, but because it's a cheap multi-mana land that's played in edh as a filler for really, really expensive cards.

I mean, yes it's a horrible card in like 70% of situations, and most games with it you'll run into those situations. But it's a budget land that adds additional Mana, which is great for someone who's just built a deck and don't have better lands to put in its place.
The issue with putting in more utility lands instead of it is a giant amount of rare utility lands often boosts the power of decks past the other decks made at that time. Which is bad for a starting off group.
The precons can't all be 150$ decks and like anything wizard makes, you gotta expect a few lousy cards.

By the power of Grayskull!
Honestly though, I like this. Although it's kinda wordy for the etb part (and she isn't really OP if you take it out).

If you are going the "until it leaves the battlefield route" then you should also add where it goes after the creature leaves play.

I think it kind of depends on your deck. If your deck requires a lot of game plan cards to work, also maybe consider hate/removal cards as part of the essentials 50 as well as the nonessentials 50, just as you would for draw cards and Mana producers.

Also taking out the device counter and just exiling it under the creature might help.

To be honest, this is a really powerful mechanic that's kind of too over the top to be a key worded mechanic. It also leaves very little design space for the for what can be done with it, unless you have cards that give you a reward for returning cards exiled with it to another space (which would make it op). Maybe making a single rare with this ability would be better.
That being said, I think your main issue lies in it being a choice between triggered and static and the fact it only hits a few types of things.
"Blank Slate (At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal the top card of your library. If it's a non-aura non-equipment permanent, you may exile it. If you do, this card gains all abilities of that card. Otherwise, put that card on the bottom of your library.)"
Another option is to have Blank Slate target a card type, then have a following effect for each type of card exiled with it, instead of automatically gaining all of those cards abilities. For example:
"Blank Slate: Sorceries (At the beginning of your upkeep, reveal the top card of your library. If it's a sorcery spell, you may exile it. Otherwise, put it on the bottom of your library.)
: You may cast a copy of target sorcery spell exiled by ~ without paying it's mana cost."
That changes the mechanic quite a bit, but it does also allow for some more space to design around and could make for some really interesting cards with it.

I think the issue isn't that Ugin's not trustworthy, more that he places his personal ethics over the good of others or their own ethics.
The idea is that you can trust that he'll try to do the right thing, but he's so blinded by his own thinking that he knows he doing the right thing that he'll ruin the lives of everyone around him.

I think the stories work in this case for first person just because they're not the Planeswalkers heroes or main villains being presented, just random people watching as Ravnica falls into chaos.
Truthfully, I didn't like this one as much but like these have been more illuminating to what's happening in Ravnica (though subtly) than just telling the story as they did in other ones. Although it's hard to make predictions, suddenly were seeing how the guilds are devolving slowly in each story. Which is interesting.

You might want to switch out Myriad Landscape for something else. It requires both lands to be basics.
