Host is a supertype with no inherent functionality. Instead, it serves as an identifying characteristic, and is closely tied to cards with augment.[1][2]

Description[edit | edit source]

Host appears on creatures in Unstable. All host creatures have an ETB ability which becomes a repeatable triggered ability when the host is combined with an augment. The exact condition for the triggered ability depends on the augment.

Host creatures always have a card name in two parts divided by a fissure, a metal bar running vertically through their art and a text box split in two unequal parts.[1]

Unlike other supertypes, like basic or world, but similar to snow, host does nothing other than to identify host creatures. Instead, various effects reference host creatures, mainly the augment ability.[3]
