View Full Version : MTG COTD: Beacon of Creation

Beacon of Creation - Fifth Dawn. Rare
3G: Sorcery
Put a 1/1 green Insect creature token into play fo reach Forest you control. Shuffle Beacon of Creation into its owner's library.
A chorus of life heralds the arrival of Mirrodin's final sun.

Pretty cool for mono green. Can get quite excessive as well in late game. Only works for mono green however, but getting 4+ tokens for 4 is nothing to complain about

The Duck's Rating: 3/5

Too bad they are Insects and not Saprolings... Either way, basically a token for every land you control is great. Not to mention the more well-known Storm Herd costs up the wazoo while this is relatively cheap.

One of the better Beacons. The fact that it shuffles back is awesome, since you can keep drawing it and creating more and more tokens. 3/5

This is a great card. This + Overrun = Oh yeah baby!

It has a lot of potential.

Well, Overrun should go in ANY green token deck. Or Overwhelm if you can't find Overrun...

predatory focus maybe?

If you have other bigger creatures or enough tokens...

Or just Kamahl.

Look, the card proved itself as good with a lot of potential.

The only thing that should be judged for this card is if there are better token generator cards. For me this is one of the must-have in a token deck.

This is asking for a mono/predominantly green overrun deck. Bring out the mana, dish out the lands, slap on a card that adds stats to everything (from Overrun to Stir the Pride to Overwhelm) and poof! Your opponent is Coco Crunch.....

Definitely a good Beacon. What more can you ask for? Fwee!
