Enrage is a triggered ability word introduced in Ixalan as the signature mechanic for the Dinosaurs of the Sun Empire.[1][2] It was also featured in Rivals of Ixalan[3] and Commander 2019.


Enrage gives an advantageous effect when the creature with the ability is dealt damage. It appears in red, white and green.[4][5]


  • If multiple sources deal damage to a creature with an enrage ability at the same time, most likely because multiple creatures blocked that creature, the enrage ability triggers only once.
  • If lethal damage is dealt to a creature with an enrage ability, that ability triggers. The creature with that enrage ability leaves the battlefield before that ability resolves, so it won't be affected by the resolving ability.
