Unicorn is a white and green creature type used for cards that depict noble white horse-like creatures a large, pointed, spiraling horn in the center of their forehead. They often are symbolic of chastity or purity. It is said that these elusive creatures can only be captured by a virgin. Unicorns are hard to find, they don't care if you believe in them any more than you care if they believe in you.
Storyline[edit | edit source]
Dominaria[edit | edit source]
The Adarkar Wastes, the barren, frozen plains of Ice Age era Terisiare were populated by unicorns (Adarkar Unicorn). Capashen knights are the only people known to have ridden a Unicorn (Capashen Unicorn). A Zebra variety lived in Jamuraa (Zebra Unicorn).
Eldraine[edit | edit source]
Bearded Unicorns are domesticated on Eldraine. The beautiful creature have a softly gleaming silvery-white coat, a wispy beard, gentle eyes and calming auras. Their healing magic works in concert with their riders. Although they seem to be a beneficent, peaceful race, they are easily able to impale adversaries on their shining horns, which also function as a conduit for their killing magic. Before they were domesticated, they used to live in the Wilds and the knights of those ancient days hunted them for the horn, which were sawed off and grinded into a powder that was said to aid virility.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the early years, R&D consciously designed Unicorns to be on the weak side as it had happened a few times by accident and had become a running joke.
- Zebra Unicorn is the only multicolored Unicorn.
- Prized Unicorn from Magic 2010 is the first mono-green Unicorn. Doug Beyer thought that it should be green because of the overlap between the mechanic and the mythological flavor. It is hunted for its horn, so the Lure mechanic makes a ton of sense. It is also a natural beast, which is the sort of thing that green gets from a creative sense.
- Based on its artwork, Wishmonger became the only known Unicorn-folk in the Grand Creature Type Update.
- The silver-bordered Ponies: The Galloping set features the creature type Alicorn, which is a winged unicorn. Besides that, there's also one Unicorn type card, Rarity.
