On Mindspark:

Yeah, this is a lot better than Zap. Unless you're looking for a land, I guess. This is actually like Prophetic Bolt, albeit dealing 1 damage rather than 4, and that was a 5-mana rare! Compare also Magma Jet.

On Dream Harvester:

You should probably have to lose a life to draw the card (and dies is misspelt).

On Mindspark:

This card should probably be a Sorcery for power level reasons, or cost more (its effectively a cantrip)

On Goldmeadow Daydreamer:

This card seems to be off-colour and is way to good. Whites weakness is card drawing and this creature is effectively a 2 mana 2/1 cantrip, which is a 2 mana 1/1 in blue and green, the colours best at card draw.

On Spin into Fantasy:

I didn't realize this was going to be limited only to blue cards.

On Spin into Fantasy:

True. But only U/x. Every non-blue spell becomes a drag on Dream. That's fine in Theros if the point is that some cards show devotion to a color. But when designing for Blue/White Kithkin, let's say, it runss counter to Lorwyn's themes for there to be a mechanic that tells players that they should only play with the blue or gold Kithkin.

Now if the mechanic read "Dream of a Kithkin or a Fairy", I would totally be behind that. On one hand, it supports tribal. On another, the cross-tribal lead allows the set to introduce complexity in its tribal themes.

On Spin into Fantasy:

It encourages multicolor just fine if you do what Wizards has been doing in the last few years and put a few dual-colored cards in every set.

On Spin into Fantasy:

Cost increased to {2}{u}.

On Spin into Fantasy:

Another way of looking at it: If this card was a sorcery that said "Draw a card, then dream", I would consider it to be a better spell than Divination. A sorcery that just draws a card would be too weak for {u}. Unsummon, however, is a strong spell at {u}.

Here's another weirdness about Dream: It encourages mono-color decks. A lot. If the plan, however, is to match this up with multi-colored hybrid cards in a Return to Shadowmoor, it should be fine. Doesn't encourage two-color Lorwyn tribal, however...

On Spin into Fantasy:

That's very close to "bounce critter + Impulse", which seems definitely too good to me.
