Commentary

Tokens and upgrades are only removed from a card through card effects or when the card they are attached to leaves play. When an artifact that had been moved to the battleline using Animator's Action: ability returns to the artifact area, any tokens (damage, Æmber, wards, etc.) stay on the artifact, and upgrades will remain attached to the card. Tokens have no effect while on the artifact since token effects only apply to creatures. If an upgrade grants a creature an ability using the phrase "This creature gains", that ability does not apply to the artifact. Other constant abilities from upgrades (such as that of Quadracorder) would still be able to resolve. If an artifact leaves play, all tokens on that artifact, including Æmber, are returned to the common supply.
