Going for 10 tentacles squid theme. Giant squid have 2 feeding tentacles, while the other 8 help guide the food to the squid's beak. I tried to capture that here. Blue doesn't do permanent exile or destroy, so I utilized bounce as a way to represent the squid eating.

While the colossal squid is native to waters in the Southern hemisphere around Antarctica, I took the artistic liberty to include a creature based off it in Ulaqat, despite Ulaqat being based on the Arctic. The snow mana for it's activated ability is a reference to the colossal squids' range.

Fun fact: All squid have an additional creature type in Magic.

Should the activated ability say "total power"? It doesn't seem like a restriction worth mentioning that each individual creature needs power less than 10.

Actually... I feel that the two abilities really just go too much into the same direction of tempo play. I personally like the power-related mechanical execution really much, while I have seen something like the triggered ability more often, so I would go for the more unique effect.

Either way two mana to Unsummon twice with a restriction that you can meet often seems insane. If you just untap after casting this you can bounce ten creatures and attack with a 20/20!

Yeah, I had intended the activated ability to be a once per turn kind of thing.

Maybe "At the beginning of your upkeep you pay {s}{s}. If you do, return up to two target creatures with a total power less than ~ to their owner's hand."

I could skip out on the p/t boosting part.

I'm glad this shares the similarity of tapping creatures down and skipping their next untap with Icebreaker Kraken.
