Griffin is a mainly white creature type used for cards that depict a fabled race of semi-intelligent beasts that resemble a cross between a bird of prey (typically an eagle) and a large cat (typically a lion).

Griffins[edit | edit source]

Head and wings of griffins are birdlike, the body and hindparts are lionesque.

Griffins have been spotted on numerous planes, but are probably most prominent in northwestern Jamuraa on Dominaria. A famous griffin from this region was Zuberi, Golden Feather, also one of the first Griffins seeing print and a Griffin Lord.

Hippogriffs[edit | edit source]

Hippogriff is a separate subtype. Hippogriffs resemble griffins but have the body and hind parts of a horse instead of a cat. An example is Razor Hippogriff from Scars of Mirrodin.

Gryffs[edit | edit source]

Gryffs are Innistrads elegant, heron-headed species of Hippogriff. Gryffs are longer and leaner than the traditional Innistrad griffin, with flexible necks, sleek hindquarters, lance-like beaks, and equine hooves. Gryffs are swift and nimble flyers, natural enemies of dark creatures, and a powerful force for the side of Avacyn and her angels. They are used by human knights as flying steeds. After Emrakul's arrival, some became twisted by the Eldrazi's power.
