Revival counters are a type of counter introduced in Magic: The Gathering Foundations. They can be used to return creatures to the battlefield on their death. This represents the multiple lives the creature has.

Description[ | ]

Revival counters first appeared on the Nine-Lives Familiar in Magic: The Gathering Foundations. They represent the old saying that cats have nine lives, and thus come back.
