Guys i have to say a lot of what i'm seeing are more like legendary creatures rather then incarnations. Although they seem quite 'loose' by association they're quite specifically templated.
1. Keyword relevent to name/colour.
2. Ability relevant to name/colour.
3. Graveyard interaction that hints at longevity i.e. whatever this creature is the living embodiment of is universal/gets stronger beyond death.
I'm all for innovation and originality but i think part of the design restrictions on this challenge was to work within the groundwork of incarnations gone before.
I'm unlikely to mark down on this because their is always a lot scope for staying open to creativity and originality in my mind but some of the cards feel off. Am i wrong? Bear in mind i had a chance to talk out what an incarnation is with some of the guys in the custom card creation area.
Keep in mind we've had two cycles of incarnations - the original seven (Wonder, Brawn etc. with Glory and Genesis), and the Lorwyn ones (Vigor, Hostility etc.) While there is some overarching theme to Incarnations in general, it's a much looser specification than you think.
Sorry for the newb question (first time playing this), what do the numbers next to the names represent? And if they are points, I'm confused why I have 34 lol. I read the grading scale and got confused half way through.
They are indeed points. Basically you get one point for submitting a top 3 and one point for critiquing, then for each critique of your team you get 3/2/1 points for coming 1st/2nd/3rd. But because there's always people (in this case a lot of people) that forget to critique, we take your score as a fraction of the maximum amount of points you could have gotten in your team (eg. 14/34, 7/28) and multiply that by a hundred (so you always end up with a score out of 100 in each round).
To those that pointed out my card is basically a reprint of Afterlife - that was intentional. I was playing around with the cost to make it less suck, as well as doing a reflavor to fit in the world of Innistrad. I mean how is Afterlife not an Innistrad reprint/functional reprint (yet?)
