Official Rulings

  • When token creatures leave play, they revert to their printed card types. When General Sherman leaves play, all of the cards that were purged try to reenter the battleline, but any card that is not a creature cannot do so. Any non-creature cards that were token creatures when they were purged by General Sherman’s Play: ability cannot return to the battleline, as they are no longer creatures. Those cards will remain purged. If a token creature was purged and reverted to a creature, that creature will return to play.

Commentary

If an ability states an effect is applied to "each creature", the effect is resolved for both Friendly and Enemy creatures.
