Description[edit | edit source]
The first creature to bear the type was Durkwood Boars in Legends. Based on its artwork, Scandalmonger became the only known "boar folk" in the Grand Creature Type Update. Boars are known by various names, including swine, hogs, vorracs and razorbacks.
In the Grand Creature Type Update the creature type Pig was changed into Boar (Zodiac Pig). The creature type Warthog shortly became Beast (Giant Warthog) before being turned into Boar as well (Warthog).
Storyline[edit | edit source]
Dominaria[edit | edit source]
Innistrad[edit | edit source]
The Somberwald is home to large, monstrous boars that are known to destroy and eat whole cottages. They were attracted by the smell of fresh dead, so the inhabitants of the woods often buried their dead especially deep.
When Emrakul arrived, the boars became even more aggressive and monstrous.
Kaladesh[edit | edit source]
Mercadia[edit | edit source]
Mirrodin[edit | edit source]
The boars of Mirrodin are partially metal, like all lifeforms on the plane. Vorracs were large Boar Beasts found in the Tangle. Others were tamed by the Vulshok as livestock. These boars needed to eat their weight in metal daily or be consumed by their inner fire.
Several of these boars were phyrexianized, being transformed into Razor Swine.
Ravnica[edit | edit source]
On Ravnica, the Gruul Zhur-Taa Clan await the awakening of Ilharg, the Raze Boar, an ancient boar god who will mount a fiery rampage and raze the over-civilized world once and for all (the so-called "End-Raze"). In their raids, the Gruul employ Batterboars, mammoth-sized boars that gather in herds whose passage shakes the ground and topples building.
Other boars are tamed and used as beasts of burden, especially by the unguilded.
Tarkir[edit | edit source]
Theros[edit | edit source]
On Theros, boars are among the wild beasts that live in the rough valleys of the Phoberos badlands. Like many monsters on the plane, they favor the taste of human flesh.
