Minion is a creature class, used for cards that depict those who work the will of overtly evil forces or organizations. Minions are black-hearted individuals who knowingly bring harm upon others through subterfuge or open malice.
The Creature type first appeared in Mirage (Shauku's Minion). Two cards from Ice Age gained the type retroactively: Minion of Leshrac and Minion of Tevesh Szat. Since then more than 40 cards have featured the type. There are also cases of individuals who have been identified as minions in flavor terms, yet lack the creature type, for example Gwafa Hazid and Rakka Mar. Tidewater Minion received the type during the Great Creature Type Update, but it has no discernable affiliation, even on Ravnica.
