I'm surprised no-one has pointed out that it makes Drudge Skeletons...it's like an early, enchantment version of those spellshapers from Future Sight that make creature tokens.

Could this be one of the last of the early D&D-style blandly named spells? Red Elemental Blast had already be rechristened as Pyroblast by this point, Control Magic was on its way out, and Copy Artifact was long gone.

This actually isn't that bad. It would be pretty dang good in limited if, ya know, anyone actually played Homelands limited...

This would be so much better if the tokens stuck around after the enchantment dies.

@ tcollins

Only destroys tokens, it would kill all of their tokens if you did that.

For a card from Homelands? It's pretty darn good, actually. A lot of decks, even black decks, don't usually have a way to use their graveyard, and in multiplayer or EDH, well, you kind of want to be able to reclaim some resources.

That makes Drudge Spell one of the better "roach" cards -- it turns resources that are otherwise useless into not just tokens, but regenerating tokens that can stick around to haunt everyone. Its only appreciable weakness is the fact that if the Spell is disenchanted, the tokens are pretty much going to go away.

@blurrymadness: Did you take Llanowar Elves out of your Elf deck because it was an Elf Druid? Elvish Archdruid only says "other Elves"!

Nope. Being the correct subtype is enough.

Drudge Spell's ability doesn't destroy all creature tokens named Skeleton, it destroys all creature tokens with the creature type Skeleton. That seems to be the source of confusion here. The ability would have been worded differently if that were the intended effect.

According to the rulings, the tokens are "rexiled".

Is that the word for sending your king into banishment?

This seems *very* good in dredge or some such. Notice that it's instant speed! Good way to get rid of Treacherous Pit-Dweller too!

T2 this
T3 Pit-Dweller with a mana open. If they kill him you exile him (and something else) for a token.

I will be buying this card I think..

@tcollins & ICEFANG
No it wouldn't. The tokens would have *all* creature types, which means that they'd be called "Antelope Beast Bear Skeleton Troll Ragamuffin" tokens. Being the correct subtype is not enough.
