Noble is a creature class that represents creatures that belong to the aristocracy of their race, either by rank, title, or birth. In this, it is similar to the obsoleted Lord type.


The subtype Noble was first featured on the card Faerie Noble from Homelands.

In the Grand Creature Type Update the subtype was incorporated into the Faerie type. However, the type was reintroduced in Throne of Eldraine. Many cards depicting kings, queens or other aristocracy gained the type retroactively.[1][2] Some additional cards like Crovax, Ascendant Hero gained in the next update.[3][4]
