Neat concept. The real practical test is whether it's too easy to use it to remove drawbacks from heavily undercosted creatures. (Which makes it fortunate that it's not black or red) It's also basically unblockable. It's pretty dang good, but as an idea that deserves some oomph it might be ok.

these don't feel like mazes
the labyrinth is just a bad crystal vein
pilatus doesn't realistically do anything in any typical game of magic, and I'd argue it should have an activated ability since it emulates the theros gods so closely in function, but also becase, again, the card doesn't do anything when it's not a beater

i'm debating either adding an activated ability or futher lowering the devotion threshold to three but i agree that right now it's in this ymtc build-around-me middle space that doesn't feel good
