Captain Angrath is a minotaur planeswalker of unknown origin, trapped on the plane of Ixalan.[1] In battle, he wields fiery chain whips, and his body exudes extreme heat. Angrath previously has been on a plane that had dragons.[2]

After he got trapped by Ixalan's Binding, Angrath became a captain of the Brazen Coalition. At first glance, he seems to care more about mayhem than about treasure. In truth, he is searching for the Immortal Sun in the hope it can free him. He recognized Huatli as a fellow planeswalker and offered her assistance in leaving the plane in exchange for help, but at first she attacked him and fled. In the race for Orazca he caught up with her again.[3]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The R&D Narrative Team has stated (perhaps tongue in cheek) that in his home plane, Angrath was a blacksmith and had two daughters. Upon his spark's ignition, he brought them presents from his planeswalking travels. Eventually, he became trapped in Ixalan, hence his desire to return home.[4]
