Nissa’s Land Elementals

Nissa, Worldwaker

So, Nissa here turns lands into Elemental creatures. How does one represent that on a card? Well, I had a couple of ideas. Of course, my Planeswalker Jousting Nissa deck is mono-green, so I only made Forest versions. Perhaps later I will need to make some other colors. Plus, I noted that a couple other Nissa planeswalkers do similar things in different sizes, so I may need to expand on this later. But for now, behold Nissa turning Zendikar into her own personal army:

Release the Kraken!

I find it a little hard to believe, but I cannot find a single example of a 9/9 Kraken token using the Clash of the Titans kraken. Kiora, the Crashing Wave from the Born of the Gods set created an emblem that produced these, and I remember reading or hearing Mark Rosewater say that the only reason they put krakens in the set was because viewers of this movie expected them in a Greek mythology setting. So, I made some of my own, and went straight back to Harryhausen’s 1981 film (not that dumb 2010 remake):

Nissa Deck Elf Warrior Tokens

My Planeswalker Jousting Nissa Deck uses

Imperious Perfect

to create some

But since my tokens are specifically for a Nissa deck…

TOKEN Elf Warrior 11p TOKEN Elf Warrior 11t

You can choose between a Terry Pratchett elf quote and a J.R.R. Tolkien elf quote! Now isn’t that just Perfect? Imperiously so!

I’m also going to include a link to this nifty little token, which would fit right into my deck, with art by some guy named The Blue Monkey or diosboss, because I had a hard time finding it again:

Tezzeret Tokens

I recently acquired Tezzeret the Schemer for my Tezzeret Planeswalker Jousting deck:

As you can see, this Tezzeret needs some support: Etherium Cell tokens and a Tezzeret Emblem. I have three options for the Etherium Cell—a flux capacitor, a lightsaber hilt, or the ultimate in battery power: the Energizer Bunny!

For the emblem, I’m thinking why not use classic 5/5 Artifact Creatures that you just lay over the artifact being transformed (can you identify these classics?):

Zombie Tokens

I don’t know if I really like that the mummies in Amonkhet are classified as zombies. I mean, sure, technically, that’s probably accurate enough, and in the classic movies, the mummies do act a bit like zombies, but still, is the world not big enough to have both mummies and zombies? At any rate, I was playing my Liliana deck the other day, and I realized that I hadn’t made any zombie tokens for it yet. My two favorite zombie franchises are the Plants vs. Zombies video game and the Lord of the Fries card game. So, I borrowed from those to make my zombie tokens (apparently, there aren’t many varieties of zombies in Magic-land—they are usually just 2/2s):

Token Zombie 22a Token Zombie 22b Token Zombie 22c Token Zombie 22d Token Zombie 22e Token Zombie 22f

Or, if you prefer a more traditional frame:

Token Zombie 22y Token Zombie 22z

And finally, the Lord of the Fries version:

Token Zombie 22

Enjoy! (And don’t let them eat your brains!)

Kaladesh Tokens

Kaladesh is basically a steampunk plane, and my favorite steampunk world is the Girl Genius comic by Phil Foglio. I’ve started making some Girl Genius-themed tokens, but admittedly, it is hard to find good images—a good excuse to go back through the comic, I guess—especially without intruding speech bubbles. So, I hope to find some good images of Maxim, Dimo, and Oggie for the Construct tokens, and maybe even some better clanks (Servo tokens) and airships (Thopter tokens). Until then…

Knight Ally Tokens

I needed some Knight Ally Tokens for my Allied by Oath Battle for Zendikar block deck, and I just recently finished The Riyria Revelations series by Michael J. Sullivan, which offered me some inspiration: Hadrian and Royce tokens!
