|(Subtype for land cards)|
Locus is a nonbasic land type used for cards that depict mana rich observing posts on Mirrodin. Created by Memnarch to observe his imported creatures, they were later taken over by the Praetors of New Phyrexia.
The first card to bear the type was Cloudpost in Mirrodin. It adds for each Locus on the battlefield. With the printing of Glimmerpost in Scars of Mirrodin deckbuilders were gifted a second playset of Loci and, alongside the landcopying Vesuva from Time Spiral could play up to twelve in one deck. Each copy would increase the amount of mana generated by Cloudpost.
- Locus is a land type, not a creature type; changelings are not a Locus and you can't use Conspiracy to make a creature a locus.
- Locus is also a location on Otaria, created by Ixidor
