Basilisks are giant, many-legged reptiles that can turn their enemies to stone with their gaze. [1]

Basilisk mainly appear in green. The first creature to bear the creature type was Thicket Basilisk in Alpha. In all, more than ten different Basilisks are printed. They usually have a variant of "Whenever ~ deals damage to a creature, destroy that creature at end of combat" (also known as "Basilisk", "Venom"), or "deathtouch".

Storyline[edit | edit source]

Jared Carthalion summoned two of them to help in the fight at Castle Melmereth; both were killed, one by Ravidel himself. During present day Shiv, many basilisks routinely wander the barren wastes.
