Army is a black token-only creature class introduced in War of the Spark.[1][2] It is always combined with Zombie, as in Zombie Army.[3]

Description[]

An army is built from the amass keyword action, which allows you to place a number of +1/+1 counter on an Army you control and create a 0/0 {B} Zombie Army if you do not already control one. The Army functions together much like how R&D makes single creature cards that are flavored as a group of beings.[4]

Amass was designed so you'd control one Army at most at any given time. But there are several ways around that. You could copy an Army you control, or maybe you control a creature with all creature types.

If Amass ever returns, Mark Rosewater considers it a possibility that it will create an Army of another creature type.[5] However, this would necessitate some tweaking of the mechanic.[6]
