Exile the top two cards of your library. You may play those cards this turn. You may play any goblin cards exiled this way as long as they remain exiled.

You may sacrifice a Treasure. If you do, create a 2/2 black Mercenary creature token with Deathtouch. Otherwise, create a Treasure token. (It’s an artifact with “{t}, Sacrifice this: Add one mana of any colour.”
Token Creature – Mercenary

On Kyren Impulse:

Neat idea here with being able to play a certain subset of those cards from exile for the rest of the game.

I recall some discussion back in the day about the base design here. I think it was called "Split Decision" which was neat. Hmm, or actually maybe it was a worse version in the vein of "Exile top two, you may play one of those cards this turn." Even as worse Sleight of Hand in {r}, I think some were concerned. Regarding this version, {r} to try to grab two bolts from the top seems quite strong for a burn deck.

On Permit Suspension:
On Peaseant:

I'm a fan of Organisation-/convoke-enabler tokens.

On Permit Suspension:

Thumbs up on the creative.

On Wizard's Conclave:

Designing common organizations is HARD. I guess it could just loot or scry, instead.

On Blacksmith’s Guild:

That first ability is really worrisome rules-wise. It should target, so you can't activate it while paying for another artifact.

On Wizard's Conclave:

This sentence no verb?

This is pretty high complexity at common - As long as you control two untapped creatures every spell card from your graveyard could potentially be flashed back

On Court of Law:

Because this only activates at sorcery speed, it’s significantly weakened. This is more similar to War of the Spark’s Chainwhip Cyclops. See also Arena Athlete and Gilded Cerodon. Because of the timing restrictions this effect would rarely be used for other purposes. Additionally, since the only way to activate this is to tap two of your potential attackers, I hardly see it as problematic.

Also; since you can only activate the ability once per turn, this taps at most two creatures in a given turn, so while generating a horde of tokens is incentivized by this, doing so does not make it any more powerful.

On Court of Law:

"Doubled activation cost." of {t}. I love the skim-read effect that gives. "Yeah, tap it twice. If you can manage that..."

Anyway - cost doesn't really matter. The effect is a big fat double red-flag for nwo. 1: Tap down multiple things. 2: Repeatably. Very much not a common.

Also very snarky name for the effect :)

On Court of Law:

This is actually similar in power to Leonin Bola
