I made a card called Recomposer | Recomposer. As soon as the search function works again, i'll put the link here; don't really have the time to look page by page through all the ideas.
This reminds me of a lesser version of Soul Catcher.

I think this card had potential, but I would like to see others' thoughts on it.

I meant that Soul Catcher appears to be the best reworking of it I could think of.
It was meant as a quanta engine that converted CC into quanta right? Well using death as a engine is Death's game.

Temporia | Temporia (http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/topic,18323.0.html)
Oppression's -1hp effect has abnormally large synergy with itself. Weapons are better vehicles for this type of effect than creatures. However Crusader has made this type of effect no longer work on Weapons either. (without a hefty cost increase and forcing the user to abuse the synergy to reach par) Non weapon Permanents still work as vehicles for this type of an effect but internally insuring the effect can't stack might be better.

Temporia's elemental theme is abnormally weak and stretched for a elemental weapon.
It also suffered from being so OP originally that it was written off.
You also assumed the opponent will use DR shields and did not respond (change or explain better) fast enough to the communities attempts at balance.
Finally it had a major metagame change that weakened some major decks. This is a partially irrational reason but still a cause.

Forgive the pseudo-necro but I really believe this thread deserves more attention.

I'd like your opinions on why :time Prophecy | Prophecy had a tough time..

I personally thought it was a brilliant card, and I can't say that about all of my cards.

What would you guys have changed? What would have made it better?

It's pretty underwhelming to have your 3 :time and one card be completely wasted simply because a creature wasn't drawn.  Even if a creature is drawn, it basically telegraphs to your opponent a card in your hard.

It's a great idea, but that's all that I can see that might turn people off.
This thing seemed dead inside. It seemed like an automaton, trying to act like as if it was alive. The effect was unsettling.

It acts like a second weapon with an attack based on the average attack of creatures in your deck * the frequency of creatures relative to non creatures.

It does not scream Time to me. Effects like this tend to be put in more hasty/rash/impatient elements.

Precisely the problem. It gets 1 effective turn of duration per draw you can induce during that 1 turn. However that is all it does.
