Cards That Deal With Tokens??

I'm new to magic and I have many cards that talk about tokens. One is "Centaur's Herald", it says 2 + 1 Forest "Sacrifice Centaur's Herald:Put a 3/3 green Centaur creature token onto the battlefield"

What does that mean? Please explain.


A token is an object that represents a permanent - typically a creature. It functions exactly the same way as any other permanent of the same type, except that it's not a card, and it ceases to exist if it's removed from the battlefield.

Magic: The Gathering booster packs often include a pre-printed token, like the one shown above, but anything can be used to represent a token, since, by the game rules, it's not an actual card.
Do you put these tokens inside your deck? Or are they set aside during the game until you need one.
you put them aside and use them as needed

as has been said, tokens are not cards, so they cannot exist outside of the battlefield
and you don't need the official tokens, pieces of paper or dice will usually do

Are the official tokens exspensive?
not really

Do card stores cary just single cards. Or would I have to look online to get 3-4 specific tokens?
it depends on the store, most will sell single cards and tokens as well

Thank you for the help (:

It depends entirely on the store, so its best to ask the one in question.

Some stores sell tokens, some give them away, some dont bother with them.

At the last Pre-release I went around trading people random foils (actually radom foil commons and uncommons) for their tokens.

If you go to a draft you should be able to pick up some too (and quite possibly several piles of commons and uncommons that people dont need).

That makes no sense to me. If they spelled the ability out on the card in full then it would not be allowed in a mono-black Commander deck, but because they used a keyword to save space it is allowed? ~ Tim
Yup, just like you can have Birds of paradise in a mono green deck but not Noble Hierarch. YAY COLOR IDENTITY

I love this description. Like the cows are sponges filled with milk. I can see it all Nick Parks claymation-style with the cow's eyes bugging out momentarily as a giant farmer squeezes it like a squeaky dog toy, and milk shoots out of it.
