Shark is a creature type that is used for Magic cards that depict fish with a cartilaginous skeleton, five to seven gill slits on the sides of the head, and pectoral fins that are not fused to the head.

History[edit | edit source]

The first card with the type was Giant Shark from The Dark. Thereafter the creature type merged into Fish with the Grand Creature Type Update, and all following sharks had that type (e.g. Hammerhead Shark, Shambleshark, Sharktocrab).

Shark was re-introduced as a creature type in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths with Voracious Greatshark,[1] Pouncing Shoreshark, Shabraz, the Skyshark and Shark Typhoon. Seven older cards received errata.[2]
