Army is a black token-only creature class introduced in War of the Spark.[1][2] It is always combined to Zombie, as in Zombie Army.[3]

Description[edit | edit source]

An army is built from the amass keyword action, which allows you to place a number of +1/+1 counter on an Army you control and create a 0/0 {B} Zombie Army, if you do not already control one. The Army functions together much like how R&D makes single creature cards that are flavored as a group of beings.[4]

Amass was designed so you'd control one Army at most at any given time. But there are several ways around that. You could copy an Army you control, or maybe you control a creature with all creature types.
