"Name like, a lot of cards. Just keep naming cards"
Invincible Counter Elf G
Creature - elf
This can't be countered
Tap: add G to your mana pool
Doesn't Cavern of Souls do this? Here's what I'd like:
Nature's Warrior - 3GG
Creature - Elf Warrior
You may discard a Green card or Forest card rather than pay Nature's Warrior's casting cost.
When Nature's Warrior enters the battlefield choose one:
--Put target colorless, nonland permanent on the bottom of its owner's library.
--Counter target Blue spell.
Alternatively, just give it one of those abilities and then make a Red card that does the other one.
Root Druid - G
Creature - Elf
Artifacts and nonbasic lands enter the battlefield tapped.
It's strong-ish, but easily stopped by Mental Misstep, any removal, or Walking Ballista.

1W (Some Name)
Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, you may exile target creature you don't control and return it to the battlefield tapped.
Smash the Stack - Instant - UU
Exile target spell. Create a copy of it. You may choose new targets for the copy.

Gag - U
Counter target spell.

Quicken -> gag. Build your own Counterspell.

@AntiRush Ooh, a combo!
I'm not sure exactly what the wording would be since so few spells actually reference the stack, but I would love to see something like:
You may change the order of any 1 spell or ability on the stack.
Imagine playing EE at 2. Your opponent later plays Null Rod or stony silence. In response you activate EE, then you play this spell and move the EE ability to the bottom of the stack so it resolves after null rod is in play.

Poisoned Memories - 1B
If an opponent would draw a card except for the first one he or she draws in each of his or her draw steps, instead that player discards a card.
Gaea's Will - GG
You may ignore spells or abilities controlled by an opponent that increase the cost of your spells.
You may spend mana as though it were any color when casting creature or enchantment spells.
(Controlled by an opponent is important, otherwise this is best used with your own sphere effects.)
Hedonism - 1B
Monks, clerics, and knights become 0/1 creatures and lose all abilities.

@Cambriel Great names!

Thanks. I'm particularly fond of Hedonism both because the flavor is great and because it's a subtly powerful effect. It's obviously intended to bone Mentor, but it also hits Containment Priest, Canonist, Grand Abolisher, Harsh Mentor, Arbiter, and a few more legacy relevant things. It's sortof an anti-hate bear card while simultaneously telling Mentor to get fucked.
Pain of Wisdom
-this- may be played for free if an opponent cast a blue spell during your turn.
Whenever a player plays a blue spell they take 1 damage.
-this- costs 2 less for each artifact your opponents control.
1, tap: Destroy target artifact creature.
2, tap: Destroy target artifact.
3, tap, sacrifice a land: Destroy target non-basic land.
-this- costs 1 less for each creature, enchantment, or artifact opponents control.
Destroy all creatures, artifacts, and enchantments.
When ever an opponent draws a card other than thier draw step add a Study Counter to -this-. At the end of opponents turn they discard a card for each Study Counter on -this-.
