Mummify was a graveyard mechanic designed for Amonkhet. It was never released.


R&D created this mechanic when designing top down for the Egyptian-themed set, Amonkhet.

Mummify went on creatures and was an activated ability usable only in the graveyard that allowed you to exile it to make a 2/2 black Zombie token with wither. It was ultimately not used because the Zombie tokens were feeling a bit too similar to what Shadows over Innistrad was doing with Zombies.[1]
