Because spotting twilight tokens is part of the cost of this card, you can't spot the twilight tokens that are added as you play the card. That is, there must be enough twilight tokens in the pool before you play the card. Other cards that share this ruling are Keep Your Forked Tongue and Fury of the White Rider.
