  • Felix Kamm

    nice :)

  • Han Solo II

    No, we want cards again, like Path to Exile and Serum Visions, thanks.

    • locololo

      I think thay they are going to change FNM promos with Leagues and Showdown promos. Maybe we get a chance to get more promos now

      • Shawn Michael Diaz

        They’re changing those up to give us rare foil land for a bit or something

        • locololo

          The land if I remember correctly comes on the showdown booster. What I mean is that the new promos will be on special events during the Ixalan season. I think that because some say League Promo, Draft Promo etc.

  • Kevan Kramer

    A Treasure side for each token? That is dumb.

    • E.

      Depends how many cards produce tokens of each. If it’s anything like servos in kaladesh, I produced way more of those than any other token so would’ve appreciated if a greater share of my tokens had them. Treasure seems like the kind of thing that each tribe can produce so having access to it, will be useful regardless of what tribe you play whereas if you ended up with a load of 1/1 vampire tokens but only play pirates or dinosaurs you’ve effectively got a load of wasted tokens.

    • Tony Delfino

      Given the variants on treasure art, I’m seeing the similarity between these and the clues from Shadows over Innistrad, the servos on Kaladesh, and the thopters in Origins. I think we’re going to see a lot of cards that create treasure, so having lots of treasure tokens makes sense.

    • Frosty

      I think your comment is dumb as we do not know how many cards creature treasures. If its a lot, well you’re going to need them.

  • Sugar thekitty

    I was actually excited about FNM tokens until seeing these… I wish they would have more diversity, maybe dedicate one side to something in standard from the new set, and the other to something eternal, (or something that can be both when possible). I would have liked to see a standard vampire on one side, and a 2/2 flying black vampire on the other side, maybe (those are not that easy to come by). I would love to see a new art for 1/1 red goblin, or 1/1 green elf, maybe a 1/1 white soldier, something with staying power. Remember that not every store does standard for FNM, and i liked it when they did non-standard promos occasionally.

    • Dave

      Goblins and Elves will totally be in Dominaria.

  • PrissyRose

    this is a really really cool because it gave us a little flavor of the factions of Ixilan based on the token and the treasure. For the dinosaurs their is a connection with merfolk being the native peoples of Ixilan and their treasure has a very mesoamerican vibe to it from ceremonial wears to fancy feathers and jade amulets. Vampires are Conquistadors, which I think is a total flavor win if Im going to be honest. Lastly pirates with a teeny dragon bird of paradise XD

    • BEARPUNCH

      Dinosaurs have thier own tribe of humans worshiping them, not merfolk. 4 tribes. Dinosaurs, merfolk, Pirates and Vampires.

  • Daniel Scott

    Obviously it’s just about what cards produces them, what those cost etc… But I find it pretty annoying that this set has 1/1 vampires and 2/2 pirates. I’d have thought it was pretty clear your average vampire would be more dangerous than your average pirate.

    • geegle

      Have you ever seen vampire pirates?

      • Mark Pilzer

        *vampirates

    • YellowJacket123123123

      well in the art of the vampire token, it is day, so the vampire should be weakened, if not dead

    • Frosty

      Theres a reason there are no vampires anymore, the pirates wiped them out.

    • Nikolai Anzuoni

      The vampires lore wise are weakened which is why they are looking for the city of gold. It has an artifact that will help them.

    • Communist_Bear

      Who cares about food ? Dinosaur rules !

  • Joel Lee

    I wonder what makes 2/2 menace pirates. 2/2 menace pirates seem pretty decent if we can get a card that is reasonably costed that makes them.

    • bentheechidna

      One was shown today that makes it.

    • hypercow779312

      um… i am properly terrified

      • Shagoth

        It’s a joke about how when you flip these treasure chests, they become a monster like a dinosaur, so it’s a dark souls reference where you find treasure chests that kill you.

        • Bastion8889

          Is that a dark souls thing? Haven’t mimics (monsters disguised as chests) existed in DnD and about 100 other games for decades?

          Still hate the idea that “the quality of the FNM card doesn’t impact attendance” as a magic player I can tell you I’ve seen people build standard decks just to play FNM for cards like serum visions path and the upcoming Fatal Push. The card does make a difference. Tokens will just kill FNM attendance.

          • Shagoth

            I’m sure they have, but it’s easier to find pictures of a video game than a game based in imagination.

          • MrAptronym

            Mimics have also been a part of videogames since around 1980. :P I know I am being pedantic, but I get a whole lot of “Dark souls did X” or “Y (from before dark souls) is like dark souls!”.

          • Shagoth

            “Dakr sol rings was the first tough video game, plz don’t look at the battle toads behind the curtain”

          • Marky

            I am still going to go, just going to play casual commander or modern (free) .. but not until the end of fatal push month.

    • Eli Eyal Broide

      Wow, there should be a Mimic creature…

      Mimic — 3U
      Creature — Horror
      Defender
      When Mimic blocks a creature, it loses defender.

      4/4

      • kukuc96

        I would go with a new mechanic for a mimic. Something like a hybrid between morph and double face cards. Where one side is innocuous and you can never know if it really is nothing or it can flip in to a frikking mimic. Its probably really hard to make that work though.
