As much as I wuv my Myr tokens and hope to use them tomorrow, I've been tempted to bring along my T-Rex to Magic tournaments to be used as a creature token for a while now. His mouth opens and closes, so there's an easy way to make if he's tapped or untapped, and it would be cool if he represented my Avatar should I get one out with Ajani Goldmane. So long as I didn't make an ass of myself by making it literally trample or otherwise interact with the cards themselves (i.e. nothing like what's pictured here), I don't think anyone would mind.
Sadly, there has rarely been a scenario where he'd actually work as a token. I mean, imagine if I used him to represent a Myr or a cat token. Not even his being inanimate would stop his biting me. Given that he most likely wouldn't get used and he effectively takes up more space than the box I carry cards in, I'll probably leave him behind. Or not. We'll see.
That said, what's the most interesting "token" you've ever used in a game?
Note: The above photo was carefully taken by a dude pretending he knew what he was doing. Exercise caution when taking stupid photos of your own cards, or they could easily become damaged. Thank you.
