    What does this even mean???

    • Kahai

      It means each creature with Embalm will have a mirrored token for it. :3

      • Dr. Burn Crow

        Is each thing going to come back as a super rad zombie?

        • Kahai

          Likely. They will be whatever color they originally were, with the exact same abilities, P/T PLUS zombie. :D

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            Oh brick yes. The mechanic I never knew I always wanted.

          • Kahai

            After being informed i was wrong, i reread the article. Embalm gives you a white token zombie creature every time.

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            That’s weird and flavorwise confusing

          • Kahai

            It’s sort of like white is has the cleansing power to make near replicas of the dead person.

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            Huh. That’s kinda cool, actually. Can I put creatures with embalm in a nonwhite EDH deck?

          • Kahai

            As long as the embalm cost isn’t white, yes.

            crow in egyptology raising undead is seen as something holy done by horus (or other gods less frequently) it makes sense flavor wise in the same sense that heroic on a red card made sense flavor wise, in that it is flavorful for the mythology (greek for heroic, egyptian for embalm). it is also *slightly* flavorful for white, as white deals in a lot of small guy resurrection with white/black being your go to for resurrection/board wipes and white is the token king by far. (not to mention black/white is the second best token 2color, behind green/white.)

          • Dr. Burn Crow

            All good points. I’m just used to my unholy necro-zombies

          • Hedronal

            The card isn’t white, and things like Hunted Troll are legal, so I assume so.

          • the mad seer

            actually it looks like they will become white based on the article that previewed it

          • Kahai

            Correct, just reread that section of the article. Thanks! :D

  • That Guy

    First ever Zombie Human… I can’t decide if that is cool or just weird.

  • Kahai

    Now i want token copies of things from other sets… XD Damnit WotC!

  • Chromasticore

    Doubling Season and Parallel Lives both like these cards

  • Vizzerdrix

    is there going to be a token for all the embalm cards or just this because its the gameday card?
