type:"Fox"

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 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.
