Ouphe is a creature type used for cards that depict annoying little humanoids, often collecting treasures or tinkering with artifacts.

Description[edit | edit source]

Ouphes are often associated with the (green) natural world, and are related to faeries and possibly gremlins. All ouphes tend to be small in stature (about the size of a dwarf or kithkin) with pointed ears, but otherwise vary widely in appearance, including the human-like brownies and pyknites, and the animalistic brown ouphes. The first creature to bear the type was Brown Ouphe in Ice Age (though the Shelkin Brownie from Legends and Niall Silvain from The Dark were retroactively issued errata to become Ouphes as well.[1]

Most ouphes are asocial, and many are hostile toward artifice. They have a reputation for being extremely annoying.

Ouphes inhabit numerous different planes, including Dominaria (where they thrived during the Ice Age), Shadowmoor, Mirrodin, and Eldraine.
