There should be more Pegasus Tribal in Magic.

Mesa thinks yousa needs more Pegasi!

Yes, yes, you read that in HIS voice! :D

Also, Sacred Mesa is now Tamed Mesa, the Pegasus tokens aren't Wild anymore.

Easily among the best token-production cards in the game. Only Mycoloth gives this card a run for its 'money', as far as I can see it at the moment. Dragon Broodmother falls not far behind them - the dragon's just limited to one token per upkeep, like Verdant Force and Verdant Embrace.

The forced sacrifice just keeps this card balanced.

... I guess I should also mention Mirror-Sigil Sergeant and Luminarch Ascension; but they both have requirements beyond casting cost and beyond mechanics internal to the card itself. Even Mycoloth requires other edible creatures under your control before entering play (and that you actually sacrifice them to Mycoloth), before it produces its own tokens. Also, Luminarch's Ascension requires quite a bit of work before it can produce tokens for you: it normally needs to be in play for at least 4 of your oppone... (see all)

Lovely flavor but with the advent of today's white weenie...sacred mesa falls a little short. But just barely.

Not quite white Bitterblossom, but a respectable token generator. They all fly, too, so there is a real possibility this could take over a game. Let's not forget that the ability can be played on an opponent's turn as well.

Cool card, and useful too. Like others have said here the card has also reasonably stood the test of time.

I get a kick out of the upkeep requirement tho. I get it as a balance mechanic, but the sacred mesa demands one of its pegasi be ritually sacrificed! On the regular!

"Alright Pegasus 23, you've won the lottery. Shirley Jackson's 'The Lottery'!! Bwahahaha!"
