About Beast Within

Beast Within, Instant, designed by Dave Allsop first released in May, 2011 in the set New Phyrexia and was printed exactly in 30 different ways. It see play in 2 formats: Commander and Duel Commander. It's currently being selled by the minimum price of $ 0.96.

This card, Beast Within, would be beneficial in a green-based control deck looking to remove problematic permanents while also providing a blocker in the form of a 3/3 Beast token. However, there are better options like [[Beast Within]] which provides a similar effect but without giving the opponent a creature token, making it a more versatile and powerful removal spell. While Beast Within could see play in certain situations, it may be overshadowed by more efficient removal spells in competitive Magic: the Gathering decks.

Duel Commander






If the permanent is still a legal target but is not destroyed (perhaps because it regenerated or has indestructible), its controller still gets the Beast token.


If the permanent is an illegal target when Beast Within tries to resolve, the spell won’t resolve and none of its effects will happen. The permanent’s controller won’t get a Beast token.
