Multani, the most well known Maro-Sorcerer. Art by Daren Bader

A Maro-Sorcerer, also known as a Force of Nature, is the elemental manifestation of the land, either brought about by strong magic, or of nature's own will.


In Dominaria, it's believed that every wood, from a sprawling forest or a shady grove, has a spirit or avatar that keeps the site safe: these creatures can be befriended with the right magic.[1]
Dominarian forces of nature are sometimes called "maro". Some of them are servants of the world-soul, Gaea.


One Force of Nature was summoned by Dreygar and given the Dark Amulet, but was defeated by Aldon.[2] Another was summoned by Greensleeves.[3] The first Force of Nature to be called a Maro-Sorcerer was Multani.[4][5] The maro-sorcerer Sol'kanar was corrupted into a monster by the planeswalker Geyadrone Dihada so that he might better serve her.[6]
