One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Journey into Nyx Tokens Revealed

It’s time, and the token cards for Journey into Nyx have been revealed by Wizards of the Coast. Normally I wouldn’t put too much emphasis on something like this, but after seeing the tokens for myself I actually got excited for the set even more than I was before. I play a lot of Commander, and I currently run a deck that uses A LOT of tokens. If you’re a Magic: the Gathering player then you know that tokens come in a ton of different shapes and colors, and when I use them I try to have them match the cards that utilize them as much as possible. Sometimes it’s a bit difficult to find the right tokens to fit your deck’s aesthetics, but with the Journey into Nyx tokens you won’t have to worry at all.

What I like about these tokens is that they each match the card from the set that utilizes them. They aren’t just your run-of-the-mill tokens that fill slots. The article that reveals the tokens from the set puts them right alongside the cards they’ll be used with, and shows that the token art syncs up with the other card’s art. For someone who’s quite particular about their cards, this is some great news.

Before I go any further, let’s check out the tokens that were previewed in the latest article:

MtG Flurry of Horns and Minotaur Token MtG Hour of Need and Sphinx Token MtG Hydra Broodmother and Hydra Token MtG Renowned Weaver and Spider Token MtG Ritual of the Returned and Zombie Token Pharika God of Affliction and Snake Token

What I like about these tokens is that they each match the card they work with. Back in Zendikar we had some Eldrazi tokens that did work with a lot of the cards in the set, but these tokens are specific. I feel like I’d see them as much more valuable when I pull them from Journey into Nyx packs versus other tokens I’ve grabbed in different sets. What about you? What’s your take on these new tokens?

    I gotta say, I love the funeral mask motif going on with the zombies in this block. So frickin’ flavorful and neat. I’m not usually a Black player, but the art and theme of that color have been phenomenal this set.

    Especially with Athreos thrown into the mix. YUM.
