I mainly play EDH now, so I bring a stack of the usual tokens that pop up in a game. 3 goblins in case of Siege Gang (different art ofc). 3 Soliders. A snake, wolf, and elephant from that 1 card in ZEN. =p
If you're wishing for Wizards to print a certain token, perhaps as a stopgap you can print some of the photoshopped tokens that other people have already invented for you. I compiled the complete list and posted it at:
I just had to purchase my first ever token. Apparently, the Green/White Elemental token that Voice of Resurgence creates is very hard to come by. I've opened tons of DM boosters and only ever gotten the ones from RtR and Gatecrash.
I've probably got around 1000 token, but I don't think very highly of them. There's a bunch of eldrazi spawn, 1/1 soldiers, 2/2 wolfs, 3/3 beasts and centaurs. I do have some of the old player rewards one though, like the 1/1 goblins and 5/5 dragon from onslaught.
My most prized token is the 1/1 colourless Spirit token from player rewards for Kamigawa.
I'm still looking for the lifelink wurmcoil token though :/
I was very annoyed when the Garruk vs Liliana Duel Deck left out the 1/1 black Bat token but had the 4/4 Beast and 3/3 Elephant tokens.
Luckily with Modern Masters, I finally managed to get them.
I was even more annoyed when the Tezzeret vs Elspeth deck had THREE 1/1 Soldier tokens and no Pentavite token.
It was frustrating because just about every set had a 1/1 Soldier and it would be easy to find if the duel deck didn't have one.
I was glad when M13 came out with pentavus and its token
I have to say, my token collection has grown by leaps and bounds since they started putting them in packs, but I feel that some things have been lost because of it, namely unofficial tokens.
Before 10th edition was the golden age of unofficial tokens, Crazy Clowns, GamingETC, Neo-Token and others were making high-quality tokens with a variety of art styles. Even SCG was able to openly manufacture and sell tokens without doing the whole random distribution thing. Now that tokens are available in packs instead of just player rewards, all of this has dried up, but unfortunately, not every token gets covered by this. Tokens made by cards in special sets don't get printed, and it's always a crapshoot whether any given token ends up in a duel deck or not. In the past, unofficial token makers would sometimes pick up the slack, but now they're gone. The only other tokens left are the crappy ones you see plastered all over ebay where anyone with a color printer and access to Assassin's Creed fanart want to sell you tokens (aka printouts glued to basic lands) for Vraska. No one ever bothers to commission or draw art for their tokens anymore. I guess there's no point when you can just steal from deviantart and sell a few dozen on ebay before you get caught.
