Personally I think even putting mystic mine at 1 wouldn't even fix it's problem because of how easy it is to search it out, (Terraforming, set rotation, metaverse, to name a few). But I'm on the fence on whether or not it should be banned because it does take a little skill to use
On one hand I agree that Imperial order is a really easy shut down for almost no cost, however it is already limited to 1, and it is a continuous trap, meaning it can't be searched out by trap trick. As well as the fact that almost everyone runs some kind of extra deck, backrow removal which is really easy to go into, (Such as tornado dragon or knightmare phoenix) I think imperial order is okay to keep at one, the only deck I really see actively run it that does irk me are traptrix but then again, I like decks who are built around trap cards so that's my own personal opinion.
Maxx C can change the entire meta as a whole if it is unbanned, as we have seen with the OCG, it is quite possibly singularly, the most powerful card in the game, but personally I like having two game types that have a completely different meta that is entirely revolved around Maxx C's banned status, and it's unlimited status, so I say keep it unbanned for the OCG, but keep it banned for the TCG
I am conflicted on Colossus, the problem with it is that it is just too easy to bring out. I want to preface this by saying, if Instant Fusion ever gets banned, I think they can and should take colossus off of the banned list immediately, instant fusion to Kaminari Attack just made Colossus a really easy floodgate to go into. I think Colossus could be returned if they either gave it an errata to add a cost to the negate, (although the whole gimmick of thunder dragons is making costs into benefits so that might not work out to well) or they ban instant fusion or take away it's alternate summoning condition
And finally, I think Harp Horror should still be banned, the orcust engine (harp horror) would still be way too good with today's meta, and I would argue even better with Red Eyes dark dragoon now being in the game, both monsters involved in the dark dragoon turbo are both dark monsters, which means they work excellent with Harp as they are not restricted by the summoning restriction, and the last thing that Orcusts need is an easy Extra deck negate, Orcust Harp Horror was good when it was banned, and it is now even better. However, if they made an errata to Harp Horror, restricting the summoning to only DARK "Machine" monsters or "Orcust" monsters for the rest of the turn, I think it could even be put to unlimited.
Well that was my addition to the discussion, I hope you all enjoy, and I would love to hear everyone else's opinion
