Awakening Zone Planechase Anthology Boar Umbra

Beast Within Beast Within English

Instant, 2G (3)

Destroy target permanent. Its controller creates a 3/3 green Beast creature token.

"Kill the weak so they can't drag the strong down to their level. This is true compassion."
—Benzir, archdruid of Temple Might

Illus. Dave Allsop

Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 6/1/2011: If the permanent is an illegal target when Beast Within tries to resolve, the spell will be countered and none of its effects will happen. The permanent’s controller won’t get a Beast token.
  • 7/1/2013: If the permanent is still a legal target but is not destroyed (perhaps because it regenerated or has indestructible), its controller still gets the Beast token.
