Syphon Essence {2}{U}

Instant

Counter target creature or planeswalker spell. Create a Blood token. (It’s an artifact with “{1}, {T}, Discard a card, Sacrifice this artifact: Draw a card.”)

The third step in creating a skaab requires draining the body of blood and replacing it with viscus vitae, a mixture of angel’s blood and lamp oil.
