Lammasu

From MTG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The lammasu is a bizarre creature type with the body of a cow, a bird's wings and a human face with horns, based on the Mesopotamian creatures of the same name (and appearance). So far, two lammasu have been printed, both associated with white mana.

Ravnica[edit | edit source]

Ravnican lammasu once ruled the velds of the plane before the arrival of the urban sprawl. Only a few remain alive today, flying in its skies while being hunted by an unknown rival race. Since these are only represented by the Ravnica: City of Guilds card Hunted Lammasu,[1] and do not feature in Return to Ravnica, it is most likely that they are completely extinct.

Tarkir[edit | edit source]

Tarkir lammasu are enigmatic nomads, soaring high above the land across all seasons. None know of their true purpose, but they arrive frequently in turning points of history.
