Fungus

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Fungus creatures are plant-like denizens that thrive and feed on decaying matter. Extremely simple organisms, they possess vast regenerative properties and are capable of asexual reproduction through the sowing of spores. While several varieties of fungus exist, the thallid sub-tribe is vastly the largest possessing several varieties among its numerous species.

Dominarian Fungus[edit | edit source]

Behemoths[edit | edit source]

Fungal Behemoths are extremely large creatures that seemingly possess a symbiotic relationship with other fungus nearby growing in size based on their growth. Their exact origin is unknown but they can be found in the time ravaged future of Dominaria.

Fungusaurs[edit | edit source]

Fungusaurs are a hybrid of lizards and fungus that grow stronger whenever they become injured. Possessing powerful regenerative properties, they are known to injure their own children in order to encourage growth.

Mold Demons[edit | edit source]

Mold demons are monsters that stand several dozen feet in height, equipped with sharp spikes and teeth made from blue-black mold spores; they are capable of extremely fast regeneration. The shapeshifter Halfdane took the form of a mold demon during his fight with Ayesha Tanaka and Tor Wauki.[1]

Shamblers[edit | edit source]

Slivers[edit | edit source]

Main article: Slivers

In the future of Dominaria, slivers run rampant unchecked across the vast wastes. Having taken on characteristics of many other creatures, some evolved into a form similar to the fungusaur. Sharing the same regenerative properties as the lizard, fungus slivers passed the trait on to all nearby slivers as well. The instinctual nature of the fungusar also seems to have been mimicked, as slivers will claw at each other in order to encourage growth whenever the fungus breed is present.

Sarpadian Fungus[edit | edit source]

Thallids[edit | edit source]

Main article: Thallids

Thelon of Havenwood created the thallids by infusing natural fungus with green mana and performing dark rites borrowed from the Order of the Ebon Hand. Initially, raised as food for the elves of Havenwood, the thallids began to show signs of being sentient beings. Eventually, they would rebel against their creators destroying their empire entirely. The thallids along with the thrulls would take over all of Sarpadia, but the fungus creatures would remain fairly primitive creatures.

Thallids, like their other fungi relatives, are extremely hard to kill and many possess regenerative properties. Feasting on decaying matter, thallids produce asexually by propagating spores that become creatures called saprolings. Cannibalistic by nature, many varieties are known to devour the saprolings in order to produce effects specialized to their breed. Some are capable of shooting thorns while others simply feed on the saprolings to boost their strength or speed.

Mycoderms[edit | edit source]

Pallid Mycoderms are a white mana infused variety of thallids that have lost their normal earthy pigments. Noticeably larger than many other thallids, mycoderms possess a symbiotic relationship with other thallids and saprolings, able to augment both species capabilities.

Mycons[edit | edit source]

Utopia mycons are a small thallid variety that possesses virtually no physical strength. Thier variety seems adept at drawing mana energy from the sarpolings.

Sporoloths[edit | edit source]

Massive thallids that appeared from the future during the Time Spiral crisis. Appearing to be towering fungus creatures, little is known about them besides them exhibiting features very similar to thallids.

Spore Flowers[edit | edit source]

A non-sentient fungal creature found on Sarpadia that resembles a flowering plant. Spore flowers are capable of amassing large amounts of spores and then releasing them in a noxious cloud. Some Sarpadian casters were able to draw upon these spore reserves with no flowers present, the concentrated blast would incapacitate those affected for a short time.[2]
