Flavor Text:
On Innistrad, death is just a career change.
Card Number:
9/22/2011 Although you're paying the card's mana cost, you aren't casting that card. Abilities that reduce the cost to cast a creature spell won't apply, and additional costs to cast that creature can't be paid. Alternative costs that affect what it costs to cast a creature spell, such as evoke, can't.
9/22/2011 Any enters-the-battlefield abilities of the creature will trigger when the token enters the battlefield. Any "as [this creature] enters the battlefield" or "[this creature] enters the battlefield with" abilities of the creature will also work.
9/22/2011 If you exile a double-faced creature card this way, you'll pay the mana cost of the front face. The token will be a copy of the front face and it won't be able to transform.
9/22/2011 If the exiled creature card has Variable Colorless in its mana cost, X is considered to be zero.
