This week, design an Incarnation. Incarnations are creatures that represent single-word abstract concepts like Wonder, Dread, and Genesis. Judgment and Lorwyn gave us two very different styles of Incarnation; you're welcome to stick to one of those or come up with your own.

Please remember: You're not allowed to vote for yourselves. For further information please look at the CotW Rules.

Procrastination is very funny but I'm going to have to objectively request no one vote for it - there's no card there.

A sad 'frowny' Would it help if I made it silver-bordered?

Most of the entries are really good representations of their concepts, but I can't see many of them being printed. I think Pride did the best job of combining flavor and mechanics in a reasonable card, though I'm not sure it actually works without replacing "creatures" with "other creatures." (Won't it otherwise give itself 1 plus its own power indefinitely?)

Common is a close second A happy smile

"Ellipsis" for short.

@...: Oh! Yeah, that's a lapse in wording. How idiotic of me. May I change the image into this one, Daij?

@Fermat: Done!

Also wow, happy to see my card get so much love A happy smile "When in doubt, do a common"; I knew the phrase still works just fine
