Interesting vanillas are difficult.
Whatever, I don't think we have this one. Correct me if we do.

Fragmented Faith
Artifact Enchantment Creature — Construct
"Purity tainted with rust; ingenuity clouded by agnosticism. My attempts at constructing a bridge only made me tremble at the impossible large chasm."
0/3

Ideally I'd like it to have some mechanic that resonates with the flavor text, but I couldn't come up with anything. Especially not on a french vanilla.

Strictly worse than Phyrexian Walker? I guess not, it has an extra type, which means strict comparisons are impossible, but I still think it would be okay at :0:

I keep coming up with neat ideas, but they all work best as noncreatures.

If you really want another nomination, how about this one I dredged up from earlier in this thread?
Am I overstepping myslef here?
Wall of Parts
Artifact Creature - Wall (C)
Defender
Wall of Parts has toughness equal to the number of other artifacts you control.
When Wall of Parts dies, draw a card.
As the Academy's collection of machines and constructs grew, so did the pile of unwanted spare parts, eventually forming a mound so large that it offered protection to the very artificers whose rejection created it.

Well, it's certainly not a french vanilla.

Preferred Pronoun Set:
Make a vanilla or French vanilla artifact creature with nice flavor.

Wanderer of Frostwynd
Artifact Creature — Golem (C)
Protection from enchantments
"You may think it lucky, to be able to walk across the endless ice without ever feeling the cold. But what else does it not feel? Are there not still countless miracles adrift in the snow that its hollow heart will never know?"
—Frennalene, Elorian emissary

2/2

Ouphe Totem

Artifact Creature - Construct
Defender
"I don't think the ouphes really know it's alive. They carved it and forgot about it, but the rotten old thing hasn't forgotten its creators, nor to protect their lands."
3/5

World-Turn Wanderer
Artifact Creature-Construct
Indestructible
Some old wizard tried to build hundreds of these when the Starstill first hit. His reason was that he could turn the world around if they all walked very fast/
2/1

I vote for Mown. Except it should probably be at uncommon. Still, definitely something that's lacking from this set.

Parad. Flavour text too good to pass up. Even if it messes with my grand scheme to have that exact card in blue then come Moonrise make a pro-inst/sorc one in green.

Ok, looks like I win this one.

Control Bug, Antique Guardian, and Wandering Collective all replace themselves after they die. Make a common card that combos with this self-replacement.

Were these supposed to be common?
Refracting Crystal
Artifact {U}
, sacrifice an artifact: Add to your mana pool”.
Aloise held the stone up to the sun and the room burst into a thousand beams of coloured light.

Too uncommon

Thrumming Tower
Land

It stands steadfast against the high winds, carving their screams into a single note of hope and defiance.
