There are at least two cards that I know of that make 5/5 Beast tokens (Spawning Ground and One Dozen Eyes).

Yet I can't seem to find an actual token card that is a 5/5 Beast.

Does such a card exist? I know I could use a die that has a 5 on it, or take a 3/3 and write 5s over them. But this question is for someone who is into the real token cards.

If they do exist, how would I find some?

  • I'm glad to know I wasn't the only one wondering about this! I was looking for a 5/5 beast token for my cube, and while I suspected there wasn't one I wasn't 100% sure. May 19, 2014 at 22:23

Here's a pretty comprehensive list of official MTG tokens and similar cards. I can't find a 5/5 Beast on that list.

As a rule of thumb:

  • Putting tokens in packs only really started around Tenth Edition, and has been done consistently since. The cards from before that are special promos.

  • In the modern day, sets sold in booster packs have tokens and emblems as some of the inserts (typically mixed with ad and rules tip cards). Pre-built sets like Commander products and Duel Decks may or may not come with token cards.

  • Wizards of the Coast does not make "copy" tokens (how would you?), but they do print specific tokens with abilities listed on the cards, as well as tokens with variable P/T.

In this case, the cards that produce 5/5 Beasts are from Mirrodin and Commander 2013. Mirrodin came before Tenth Edition, while Commander 2013 is a non-randomized set that didn't include tokens.

  • I would rather say that it's only with (roughly) Tenth Edition that Wizards started making tokens for all cards that produced token creatures; while the ones before that were promos, there really were quite a few of them (as they were used for player rewards promos). For instance, I have several of the 4/4 beast token from Odyssey. Mirrodin more falls in the 'dead zone' in between the two different styles of token production. May 19, 2014 at 22:25
