Fox is a white creature type used for cards depicting carnivorous mammals, characteristically having upright ears, a pointed snout, and a long bushy tail. Foxes are related to dogs and wolves.

For a long time Arctic Foxes from Ice Age was the only existing Fox card. This changed when the Kitsune (Japanese: きつね) from Kamigawa were introduced.

After Innistrad added the Silverchase Fox and Theros Vulpine Goliath, the creature type became more common.

Kamigawa[edit | edit source]

Even though the fox-folk of Kamigawa live within the Jukai Forest, the have the closest relations with the humans.[1] Even more so than the daimyo's Soratami advisors. Kitsune are long-lived beings with very strong beliefs in their traditions. These Kitsune always have a class beside the Fox subtype.

Notable kitsune[edit | edit source]

Plane of Mountains and Seas[edit | edit source]

Some foxes of the Plane of Mountains and Seas are sapient and appear in spirit form (e.g. Nine-Tail White Fox). It's still unknown if any regular foxes exist on this plane.
