tribal phoenix


When the aftermath naming style of “CARDNAME to CARDNAME” was revealed, I knew I wanted to make Ashes to Ashes as a card for my custom phoenix tribal EDH deck project.

While exiling cards from graveyards is typically a black mechanic, it’s not tremendously powerful and has a lot of flavor for the aftermath side of this card because it represents the exiled card being reborn as a phoenix. I also like making this design a bit of a politics card for commander because you can give the token to another player you might want to lend some assistance.

I’m also enthused that I was able to find a single piece of art for each card that showed a phoenix dying on one half and then rising on the other half.
