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 Comprehensive Rules (June 14, 2019—Modern Horizons)

  • 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.

From the glossary of the Comprehensive Rules (June 14, 2019—Modern Horizons)

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

Trivia[edit | edit source]

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