Unicorn

Unicorn is a white and green creature type used for cards that depict noble white horses with a large, pointed, spiraling horn in the center of their forehead. They often are symbolic of chastity or purity. It is said that these elusive creatures can only be captured by a virgin. The desire for its magic horn inspires such bloodthirsty greed that all who see the unicorn will kill to possess it. Unicorns are hard to find, they don't care if you believe in them any more than you care if they believe in you.

The first card to bear the type was Pearled Unicorn in Alpha.

Dominaria[edit | edit source]

The Adarkar Wastes, the barren, frozen plains of Ice Age era Terisiare were populated by unicorns (Adarkar Unicorn). Capashen knights are the only people known to have ridden a Unicorn (Capashen Unicorn). A Zebra variety lived in Jamuraa (Zebra Unicorn).

Theros[edit | edit source]

Theran Unicorns appear to be creatures of Nyx (Noble Quarry). His affair with Nylea once inspired the god Purphoros to forge artificial unicorns from opal.

On Ulgrotha Unicorns were sought after by the cooks of Baron Sengir (Feast of the Unicorn).
