Fox is a white creature type used for cards depicting carnivorous mammals, characteristically having upright ears, a pointed snout, and a long bushy tail. Foxes are related to dogs and wolves.

For a long time Arctic Foxes from Ice Age was the only existing Fox card. This changed when the Kitsune (Japanese: (きつね) ) from Kamigawa were introduced.

After Innistrad added the Silverchase Fox and Theros Vulpine Goliath, the creature type became more common.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

Dominaria[edit | edit source]

Foxes were one of the animals to survive during the Ice Age (Arctic Foxes).

Eldraine[edit | edit source]

Giant foxes are used as mounts by Elves on the plane of Eldraine (Maraleaf Rider, Wildborn Preserver, Wildwood Tracker). Some foxes have the ability to fly (Flutterfox).

Kaladesh[edit | edit source]

Foxes artifacts are some of the works made by lifecrafters (Filigree Familiar (Kaladesh)).

Kamigawa[edit | edit source]

Even though the fox-folk of Kamigawa live within the Jukai Forest, they have the closest relations with the humans.[1] Even more so than the daimyo's Soratami advisors. Kitsune are long-lived beings with very strong beliefs in their traditions. These Kitsune always have a class beside the Fox subtype.

Ikoria[edit | edit source]

Innistrad[edit | edit source]

On expeditions through Ashmouth, the hunters of Devilthorn Lodge rely on the cleverness of foxes to counteract the mischief of devils (Devilthorn Fox).

Plane of Mountains and Seas[edit | edit source]

Some foxes of the Plane of Mountains and Seas are sapient and appear in spirit form (e.g. Nine-Tail White Fox). It's still unknown if any regular foxes exist on this plane.

Theros[edit | edit source]

In Setessa, foxes feed on hydras, giants, and massive serpents becoming giants (Vulpine Goliath). The fox is also the symbol for Bassara Tower, a watchtower near the Summer Nexus.[2]
