: The current "token ownership" rule is poorly understood, mainly because it doesn't make a ton of sense. Currently, the owner of a token is "the controller of the effect that put it into play." That means I own the tokens put into play under your control due to my Hunted Dragon
or Forbidden Orchard
, which allows me to do unintuitive tricks with cards like Brand
or Warp World
. Few people are aware of this rule, and assume that the owner of the tokens is the player under whose control they entered the battlefield.
: We are matching most players' expectation by changing the rule such that the owner of a token is, in fact, the player under whose control it entered the battlefield.
