Monger is a creature class unique to Mercadian Masques. The five creatures of the cycle are depicted as strange-looking dealers in commodities. Each of these uncommon 3/3 creatures has a cost of {3} and one colored mana, and has activated abilities costing {2} that any player (not just the controller) can play.


  • Monger is a creature type that isn't supported anymore. It was used to unify a group of creatures, but the type has not been added to creatures thereafter.[1]
  • Four of the cards gained additional subtypes in the Grand Creature Type Update: respectively Unicorn, Human, Boar and Minotaur.
  • The art of Squallmonger is such that no known creature type would fit.
  • Spiritmonger is not a Monger, but a Beast.
  • Warmonger is unrelated to the Warmonger's Chariot.
