Innistrad Tokens

Happy Monday MTG peeps,

The mothership has updated its Innistrad Card gallery (aka the visual spoiler) and ALL the new Magic the Gathering cards are now listed for your perusal. Links to the visual spoiler and the other pages of the Innistrad Mini-Site are HERE.

There are quite a few cards to go over with the full set now spoiled / previewed and we're certain we'll be rather busy for the next few weeks. For today however, we wish to review all the Innistrad cards which will generate tokens. We are big fans of token builds in standard constructed and Commander and Innistrad promises to deliver a truckload of awesome with 12 different tokens. Let's have a look . . .

1/1 white Spirit creature token with flying :
Doomed Traveler, Geist-Honored Monk, Mausoleum Guard, Midnight Haunting, Moorland Haunt

2/2 blue Homunculus creature token :
Stitcher's Apprentice

Three different 2/2 black Zombie creature tokens :
Undead Alchemist, Army of the Damned, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Moan of the Unhallowed, Cellar Door

2/2 black Vampire creature token with flying :
Bloodline Keeper / Lord of Lineage

5/5 black Demon creature token with flying :
Skirsdag High Priest

2/2 green Wolf creature token :
Garruk Relentless / Garruk, the Veil-Cursed, Kessig Cagebreakers, Mayor of Avabruck / Howlpack Alpha

1/1 black Wolf creature token with deathtouch :
Garruk Relentless / Garruk, the Veil-Cursed

*/* Green Ooze token :
Gutter Grime

1/2 green Spider creature token with reach :
Spider Spawning

4/4 white Angel creature token with flying :
Geist of Saint Traft

If you do want to build an Innistrad token deck but were unsure, these next two cards may sway your opinion on which way to go. There is extra help in white and green . . .

Intangible Virtue : Creature tokens you control get +1/+1 and have vigilance.

Parallel Lives : If an effect would put one or more tokens onto the battlefield under your control, it puts twice that many tokens onto the battlefield instead.

And now a word about jumping on this upcoming set - we're suggesting getting in your pre-orders ahead of the official release on September 30th next month. Check out the excellent prices at MTG Mint Card here.
