Create is an evergreen keyword action. It was consolidated with a name in Kaladesh and first seen on the FNM promo for October 2016, Rise from the Tides,[1] although Wizards of the Coast defined it just only as a new vocabulary.[2]

Create is used when a card or effect puts a token onto the battlefield.[3][4]

Rules[edit | edit source]

From the glossary of the Comprehensive Rules (October 4, 2019—Throne of Eldraine)

Create
To create a token is to put a token onto the battlefield. See rule 701.6, “Create.”

From the Comprehensive Rules (October 4, 2019—Throne of Eldraine)

  • 701.6. Create
    • 701.6a To create one or more tokens with certain characteristics, put the specified number of tokens with the specified characteristics onto the battlefield.
    • 701.6b If a replacement effect applies to a token being created, that effect applies before considering any continuous effects that will modify the characteristics of that token. If a replacement effect applies to a token entering the battlefield, that effect applies after considering any continuous effects that will modify the characteristics of that token.
    • 701.6c Previously, an effect that created tokens instructed a player to “put [those tokens] onto the battlefield.” Cards that were printed with that text have received errata in the Oracle card reference so they now “create” those tokens.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The templating for The Hive (Alpha) already used the "create" vocabulary.[5]
