Goat is a red creature type used for cards that depict various hollow-horned, bearded ruminant mammals living in mountainous areas and their domesticated relatives that are raised for wool, milk, and meat. The first creature to bear the type was Mountain Goat in Ice Age.

Dominaria[edit | edit source]

From Dominaria several Goat Beasts are known. The Wild Colos from Keld is sometimes used as a steed, but can only be trained as a young animal. The Crested Craghorn is indigenous to Otaria. It is said that Craghorns experience a wide range of emotions: "rage, fury, anger . . .". Their skeletons can be found all over Skirk Ridge, tangled in each others' horns.

Lorwyn[edit | edit source]

Springjacks are small grazing animals native to the plane of Lorwyn.[1] They have slightly curving horns, shaggy wool, and four-clawed paws. Kithkin keep springjacks for use as mounts, as well as for their milk, mutton, and wool. Those who tend flocks of springjacks are known as jackherds. Goblin Goatnappers steal Kith goats for practice. The real prize, of course, is a giant's giant winged Cloudgoat.[2]

Tarkir[edit | edit source]

The Abzan Houses of Tarkir use large Ibex (wild goats) as mounts and draught animals.
