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.

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?
