Well, it's debatably better.

Like I said, vulnerable to many types of removal, and requires you to give up a land. As such, getting it out early is a hassle, and you can't cast multiple without giving up multiple lands, and any colored mana you require from those lands.

Get this, the two colors that can destroy Enchantments can already destroy Artifacts. It being an enchantment is usually going to be irrelevant. That's not an efficient balancing factor.

Wizards doesn't do legendary lands anymore except when the story desperately calls for it. Having a basic land type is OP, because you can use fetchlands for it. God, there's so much going on with this card. Just make it:

T: add W to your mana pool.
WW, T: put a loyalty counter on target planeswalker."

You'd better have a set themed around poison to put that in, because it's really unnecessary to use poison counters on a one-off card.

Interesting concept but VERY poor execution. Look at cards like Possessed Portal - they specifically include themselves in their own effect so that if the game grinds to a halt, the effect will end and you can start playing again. This needs an out.

Your regeneration templating is still incorrect.
Only planeswalkers get to use gendered pronouns.
You have an infinite sac outlet with two of them if you do it right. If you ever have two of them in the graveyard both return to the battlefield (it's mandatory) and just kill each other by the Legend rule, or if you have four then two will return, kill each other, then the other two come in and kill each other, then the original two would trigger again and come in and kill each other and I hope you're getting the idea.

Thank you for the advice, and point taken, but the main thing about this is that there is no out. It's an eight-mana endgame spell which seals the rest of the game. It can be countered, but once it's resolved, that's it. Either someone wins based on what's in play, someone loses, or it's a draw.

I think the application is narrow enough for it to be fair. It's similar to Flashfreeze. Stoic Rebuttal is literally "Counterspell if metalcraft."

Yes, but that requires you to be playing Progenitus in your deck and to draw it. The power of a card is limited by the amount of decks that can properly use it. For example, Corrupted Resolve can counter anything for 1U, but only Infect decks can run it.

Why can this take nonland permanents? Black, blue and red all have trouble interacting with Enchantments, and all Red wants to do with artifacts is smash them. Being able to permanently snatch Planeswalkers is also pretty ridiculous. It being Legendary is irrelevant, since you'd never really care about having two of them at the same time.

I think it would do better as:
T, exile ~: Gain control of target creature. That creature becomes Legendary in addition to its other types, its name becomes ~, and it gains this ability.

Only if you had an infinite mana supply. It doesn't say "You can cast this from your graveyard without paying its mana cost", just that if you're below 5 you can cast it no matter where it is (except your library).

Depends on the risk involved. With a multipayment cost for example, you often run the risk of not getting whatever it is you want, because the mechanism is removed before you can. There are definite advantages to getting everything upfront, so this should probably cost slightly more.

You would announce the value of X, and then calculate the total cost based on that value and the reduction.

So x=4, and there's 3 counters on Earth King. Total cost of Bonfire would be 8RR, reduced by 3 to 5RR.

I may be wrong, but it sounds like you can cast the spell as many times as you want as long as the card remains exiled, so if the enemy casts anything that deals damage you'd instantly win, kind of like an imprint

Here is just a general hint. If your card has more than about 3-4 lines, it probably isnt a good card. Find a single non-planeswalker card that has more than a few lines, and it is an oddity. Sure, we all want our cards to be cool, but often times, a simple but effective mechanic is better than several needlessly complicated ones.

Also,

Shouldn't it be "{T}, Remove a charge counter from Chromatic Mana Battery: yadda yadda blah blah"?

The way it is right now implies that you can activate the ability even when you have no charge counters, and the last part of it would just be countered. Or am I wrong? Sorry, novice here.
