Seems like a nice take on the flavor. I'd re-word some of its abilities, though.

Creature - Incarnation Rare
If ~ is in your hand, you may play with it revealed. If you do, all creatures have haste for as long as ~ is revealed.
Creatures you control can't be blocked.
Red mana symbolRed mana symbol, Reveal ~ from your hand: Cast ~ without paying its mana cost. Activate this ability only if an opponent has taken ten or more damage this turn.

I did remove the graveyard part from its third ability, because it's cleaner that way. As it is, I think the card has too much going on, and if it were my entry I'd remove the 'creatures you control can't be blocked' ability. As-is, I definitely think one of the three abilities should go, so that it's not as complex, and I definitely think the activated ability should drop one of its two modes.

Creature — Incarnation Rare
Whenever a legendary creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may cast History from your hand for 2WW.
At the beginning of your upkeep, you may return History from your graveyard to your hand.

Whenever a creature you don't control dies, put X +1/+1 counters on Schadenfreude, where X is that creature's base toughness.

Melancholy 3 mana symbolBlue mana symbol
Creature - Incarnation Uncommon
As long as Melancholy is in your graveyard and you control a swamp, creatures you control have haste.
The shadows left by Melancholy are the only way to mark its passing.

I think my current favorites are Ennui and Common. Between these two, I can't decide which one to vote for.

My colors: Freedom (Red mana symbol) through Knowledge (Blue mana symbol) and Organization (White mana symbol).
