Otter is a creature type that is used for Magic cards that depict semiaquatic fish-eating mammals of the weasel family, with an elongated body, dense fur, and webbed feet. Sea otters have more rounded bodies with thicker fur, while river otters are more elongated with less dense fur.

History[ | ]

The Otter type was introduced in Ikoria: Lair of Behemoths[2] with Lutri, the Spellchaser and Thieving Otter. Ikoria Commander added Eon Frolicker. Bloomburrow featured Otter-typal.[3]

Storyline[ | ]

Bloomburrow[ | ]

Otters are one of the animalfolk of Bloomburrow. The otterfolk are playful, fun-loving, and adventurous with a strong daredevil streak.[4] They seek thrills by storm chasing, the practice of following Calamity Beasts as closely as possible until the danger becomes too great. The otterfolk are known for their ability to control river currents and their elemental magic, which they store in pearls.[5] They are also known for their divers and sailors.[6]

At their best, otterfolk are daring, jovial, and adventurous. At their worst, otterfolk are careless, frivolous, and prone to putting others in harm’s way.[7]

Ikoria[ | ]

The little otter Lutri once stole an arrow from the quiver of the planeswalker Vivien Reid. Through unknown means, Lutri was able to use the arrow to release a creature as if the Arkbow had shot it. By the time Vivien figured what had happened, Lutri had already vanished beneath the waves.
