Notes and Rules Information for Back from the Brink:
  • Although you’re paying the card’s mana cost, you aren’t casting that card. Abilities that reduce the cost to cast a creature spell won’t apply, and additional costs to cast that creature can’t be paid. Alternative costs that affect what it costs to cast a creature spell, such as evoke, can’t. (2011-09-22)
  • Any enters-the-battlefield abilities of the creature will trigger when the token enters the battlefield. Any “as [this creature] enters the battlefield” or “[this creature] enters the battlefield with” abilities of the creature will also work. (2011-09-22)
  • If you exile a double-faced creature card this way, you’ll pay the mana cost of the front face. The token will be a copy of the front face and it won’t be able to transform. (2011-09-22)
  • If the exiled creature card has {X} in its mana cost, X is considered to be zero. (2011-09-22)
