Volver is a creature type unique to Apocalypse. It's a cycle of mutant abominations that resulted from the Rathi Overlay. Volvers were particularly noteworthy in their counter-evolutionary synthesis of three different colors of magic—two allied and one opposed. During the darkest days of the Phyrexian Invasion, when such strange alliances were a necessity, the disciples of the enemy-color schools of wizardry saw these creatures as an affirmation of their studies.

The Cycle[edit | edit source]

Each of these rare creatures has one kicker cost for each of its enemy colors. On all, the 1M kicker gives two +1/+1 counters, while the N kicker grants one counter. Each of these grants an ability matching the color: White gives an old form of Lifelink, Blue gives Flying, Black regenerates for the cost of 3 life, Red gives First Strike, and Green gives Trample.
