We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

|Statistics:|| 31 cards|
|Gatherer search for "Menace"|
Menace is an evergreen keyword ability which was introduced in Magic Origins to replace Intimidate which had turned out to be too "swingy". The Menace mechanic had existed since Goblin War Drums from Fallen Empires and is primary in black and secondary in red.
Some older cards with this ability received errata so they now have menace.
Rules[edit | edit source]
Rulings[edit | edit source]
- Once a creature with menace is legally blocked by two or more creatures, removing those blockers from combat won't change or undo the block.
