Daily Card Redesign #148: Crown of Awe

Daily Card Redesign is a daily Magic: The Gathering design exercise where I randomly choose a card for the scenario of it being killed late during its own set's development. I design a replacement card that uses the same art, is the same color, is the same rarity, and has a name that, alphabetically, keeps it within the same collector number for the set.


White didn't have lifelink or vigilance keyworded back then. And first strike was already taken by the red crown in this tight cycle. What to do? Well, we're forced to not have a keyword and just use the long form of vigilance.

On the plus side, this leaves open the new name of this card to have Crown of Vigilance without it being too cheesy that it's a "crown of literally-what-this-is-granting."

Flavorfully, the art depicts a guy that, due to the magics that is enchanted on him, is an ever-watchful protector. Kinda like Mad-Eye Moody's eye.
