Word of the Day #9: Simulacrum

For so long I had thought this word meant robot or some sort. And perhaps the picture of this card misdirects us to think so. 

But actually finding the real meaning has made me appreciate the card even more.

Pronouced: sim-u-lay-crum

1) superficial likeness
2) image or representation

Example sentence: This magic card is a simulacrum of Jens Thoren.
