Utility creatures[edit source]
I always understood such creatures to be "bombs" or "build-around" creatures, e.g. Oracle of Mul Daya or Archetype of Courage. A utility creature to me is a relatively small creature that is intended to remain on the battlefield and provide a useful or even important effect, often activated, but by default does not get involved in combat, things like Mana creatures, pingers, tappers, Spirit of the Labyrinth...
