one of my favorite black enchantments. And Yes, tokens go to the graveyard first, then as a state-based action they are then exiled from the game.

My favorite was Blue/Black Zombie Upheaval. Basically control to hold them off until you get the mana, Standstill, counters, discard,etc. Power sinks etc to tap them out, then the following turn, tap your eight mana, cast Upheaval, drop the Zombie Infestation with the other two and dump your hand into enough tokens to kill them the following turn. I walked a tournament undefeated with this back when the set came out. The look on people's faces was priceless.

Very nice card. I personally play with a Infestation deck. All you need is this card X2 along with 4 confessors, 2 graveborn muses, and Library of leng. You discard lets say 10 zombies. You place them a top of your library get 5 zombies and gain 10 life. Next turn you draw 6 plus the original one them repeat the process.

@ the poster above me: That combo wouldn't work. With Necropotence in play, any cards that you discard are removed from the game instead. Although if you still want to pay out life to draw cards and pitch them to Infestation, Yawgmoth's Bargain works in that circumstance.

That aside, Infestation is really great in madness variants or any deck that wants to get stuff into the graveyard quickly, i.e. a Haakon deck.

Beautiful card, lets ya pull off all sorts of nutty hijinks. Try it with ensnaring bridge,spirit cairn, and howling mine and lockdown yer opponents while building a ridiculous force of zombies and spirits, now all you need is something with one of those "crazy" sacrifice X creatures cost or threshold/Flashback/recover/dredge abilities. Plus its great back up for my favorite creatures to make theme decks...ZOMBIES!!!

One way to use this excellent card is to combine it with upheveal and create many zombies via discarding your hand.

this card only shows its true potential when coupled with Nefarious Lich and Confessor. You figure it out.

No, token creatures do not go to the graveyard. They are removed from the game.
[admin edit: Tokens go to the graveyard as regular creatures, and are removed as a "state-based effect" when a player gets priority again. They stay in the graveyard long enough to trigger abilities:]

to cory from minn. tokens DO HIT THE GRAVEYARD and trigger effects as well then they go POOF!! and dont use vengful dead, costs too much for a turn one or two kill, how about this. turn one, swamp, dark rit, lotus petal, necro, zombie infestation, spellbook (or library of leng, draw, lets say 18 cards, unless there playing red then draw no more than 12, keep 8 life, as a safety margin,) wait 1 turn, at the end of there turn, dump all but 3 cards (make sure you dump an anger and or a wonder) keep a swamp, and keep a plunge into darkness available and a gempalm polluter, make 9 or 10 zombie tokens at the end of your opponents turn, then attack, or sac a bunch of zombies to gain 3 life per each from the plunge, or cycle the gempalm, if you sac you have more life to draw more from the necro, or you can even drop a feldons cane to reshuffle, or a thyran foundry. the best that i can do is turn two for me if i go first. if you add some moxes (chrome, diamond, jet) that too will help. the only creatures you should have are the polluters, and you can even gain life from nourishing shoal, and add 4, big casting cost green creatures, to gain more life to draw even more. until you get absloute advantage, and then CRUSH THEM!!!! MWA HA HA HA HA HA HA. (dont forget, force of will is baaaad!!!)

to the last reviewer read the cards. Tokens never hit the graveyard, and necro and plunge remove from the game good job you lose.
