Interesting green ability. Has that been seen before in green? The closest I can think of off-hand is Spitting Image.

Green gets to make copies of its own creatures all the time. The closest to making tokens of dead creatures is Gyrus, Waker of Corpses. This version has shown up once or twice in each color. Green gets a little reanimation, though that's mostly black. This card is a bit of a bend

Does it? The only examples I can come up with are Spitting Image and Bramble Sovereign, and I guess populate and Rhys the Redeemed, which only apply to tokens.

Would you say green could have Mirror Image?

Also Dual Nature and Parallel Evolution. There's also a few that copy themselves, like oozes and hydras. I think Mirror Image would be a bend in green.

More importantly, green is secondary in reanimation, so in that light, this is fine

Now Back From the Brink

Isn't white secondary at réanimation ? Green is primary in permanent recursion.

"Reanimation" (Return a creature card from a graveyard to the battlefield.)

Primary: black

Secondary: white, red, and green

Tertiary: blue

Black is the best at bringing the dead back to life. It has no real restrictions on what it can bring back. White tends to reanimate smaller creatures, usually with a converted mana cost of 2 or less. It will occasionally reanimate a creature type that is mostly white (things like Angels or Humans). Red has Phoenixes. Green has creatures that can bring themselves back from the graveyard. Both black and white will sometimes reanimate a swath of creatures all at once. Blue, on rare occasion, can make a copy of a creature out of the graveyard.

But green gets to return anything to hand and make tokens, so this is fine
