Praetor is a creature type and class used for cards that depict leaders of dark forces.

New Phyrexia[edit]

New Phyrexia introduced the subtype with a cycle of five mythic rare legendary creatures, one per color, representing the Phyrexians' rulers and the different philosophies among the Phyrexian army regarding what exactly New Phyrexia should look like. They give a positive effect to the player controlling them, and an inverse effect to their opponents.[1]

Other cards[edit]

Two older cards gained the subtype, as well.
