Interested in making a set of Tokens, need input
Posted: Thu Mar 23, 2006 8:43 pm
I know the whole token set thing is WAY overdone, but i'm also fairly small time and am interested in making sets of tokens for my local players (and anyone here who may be interested)
I'm talking with a local artist who has agreed to do the art for me, and i plan on putting my Reaper logo on the backs along with the name (Mostly Harmless Cards)
What i need from you guys is a list of common creature types you would want tokens for:
anything else? im looking to make 5-10 different ones. at least for now.
Dilli / Mostly Harmless Cards

There are two ways to approach this. Either target your local Metagame, which means see what decks are playing token makers locally, or target it on a wider scanle, which involves a little reasearch of a wider scales for decklists. Doing tokens on whims of members here may not be the best approach. Doing a little homework to see what might actually be used will work out the best for your project.

the problem i have is that my "local" metagame covers most of Texas.
Texas, as many of you will know, is "kinda big"
Which is why i have posted this question.. simply put, my metagame is too big and i need help.

The other popular, but less relavent tokens are squirrels (a personal favorite of mine), Angels, and Dragons. They don't get used a lot, but they would entice more collectors to pick up your token sets if that's how you're going to sell them.

I'd suggest Soldiers. They are White (whereas the tokens you mentioned are Black, Green and Black), and at least here in Italy "Raise the Alarm" is getting quite popular (especially on an Isochron Scepter ;-D )

I'd suggest Kelp, thrull, minion, bat, and dry_cereal :-)

There are certainly a lot of cards that generate Insects.

You could go to the extreme of making tokens that haven't received much attention previously. Why not make sand tokens, kelp tokens, caribou tokens, chicken tokens, prism tokens, twin tokens, camarid tokens, hornet tokens, citizen tokens, plant tokens, wolves-of-the-hunt tokens, etc.
If I had to pick useful tokens I would pick dragon, bear, saproling, goblin, demon, squirrel, pegasus, insect, wurm, elemental, thrull and sheep.

Maybe even a Voja token ;-)

I love how you mention Thrull token as a useful one ;-)
Fallen empires forever! I also think it would be cool with some of those more odd tokens, one that comes to mind would be a "djinn of the bottle" token from Bottle of Suleiman :D
Maybe im just crazy ;) How about asking people on the next mtg event that you attend to?

if you made a set of tokens covering everytoken ever made im shur id pick up a few sets as that would be awosme. all of those Fallen empires Tokens could actualy be made!! thats my vote.

Ok, List so Far:
Ones that are actually likely (for now):
Angel (*/*) Flying
Pegasus (1/1) Flying
Spirit (1/1) Flying
Illusion (1/1) Flying
Weird (3/3) Flying?
Demon (*/*) Flying
Dragon (*/*) Flying
Bear ? (1/1 or 2/2)
Spirit (1/1) [forbidden orchard]
I'd like to maybe do 2 for each color for the first set (with the intent to do others... but i make no promises) Those bolded are the ones i think are probably the most useful right now.. but i need a second blue. Perhaps the wierds from Thunderheads?

The only sheep that I know of are green.
