Storyline[edit | edit source]
Dominaria[edit | edit source]
A devouring deep was under the command of the wizard Coldraith of Golthonor. In the year 1281 by the Reckoning of the Sages of Minorad, the creature attacked people led by the Marked Cleric. Caliphear the Nightmare and Altair of Coloni forced it to reveal its master was Coldraith. The devouring deep was afraid of merfolk assassins.
Desert rays are sand-colored creatures that inhabit the Sukurvian Desert. They are forty feet long and are related to manta rays. In prerevisionist continuity they were used by the Sand Warriors for transportation.
