Guildpact Token Art 1

Weird tokenWhen you crank out a token creature in Magic Online, the game doesn't tear off a piece of paper and scrawl "saporling" on it, or grab a face-down Swamp and call it good -- it mocks up a full-color card, complete with unique art, for that token creature. It follows that original art has to be commissioned for those token-generating cards. And it follows further that we'll show you high-resolution versions of them here in Magic Arcana.

Guildpact is home to several token-generating cards. Some use token art that was previously commissioned for Ravnica: City of Guilds; for example, Seize the Soul uses the same 1/1 white Spirit token with flying that Transluminant and Twilight Drover used.

But here are some that were all-new for Guildpact. The art team likes to have the same artist who illustrated the original token-generating card illustrate the token art, for visual similarity. Check it out.
