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!

Drake Tokens

I needed some Drake tokens for Talrand, Sky Summoner, which is in my Nicol Bolas Planeswalker Jousting deck, but I decided to make something a little punny:

You can probably tell what show I used to watch after school when I was a kid.

Magic: the Gathering Sporcle Quizzes

I’ve noticed that the Magic: the Gathering community does not get enough love, nor play enough, on the quiz site Sporcle. I’ve made a few quizzes for it, as have a few other afficianados, so check it out:

Greek Vase Inspired Theros Tokens

I’ve been working on some Theros tokens for awhile now, and it seems unlikely that I will finish the whole set, so I’m going to post what I have now. I’ve taken an image from a Greek artifact, usually a vase, and coupled it with a quote from ancient Greek literature, usually Homer. Enjoy!

Into the Scrapheap? Episode 13 (Mana Walls)

I was updating my Garruk Planeswalker Jousting deck when I came across a card that had a strictly better version:

Vine Trellis Overgrown Battlement

There’s almost no reason to play Vine Trellis anymore, especially since even if you’re looking for another mana producing wall, there are other (better) options available as well (not considering cost, of course):

Sylvan Caryatid

The slightly smaller body is more than compensated for in its Hexproof. And it’s supplying you with ANY color of mana, not just Green. If you do need a bigger body, you might try this:

Wall of Roots

Although this will shrink over time, you do have the immediate option of getting 4 or 5 mana in one fell swoop. If you really need multiple colors of mana and you’re willing to pay a little more, you can also get this:

Axebane Guardian

CONCLUSIONS: All of this renders the Vine Trellis pretty well redundant and inferior. I am officially tossing it into the scrapheap.

For completion’s sake, here are two other narrow-use mana walls:
