Samurai is a creature class. Samurai, also known as Bushi, are warriors who have sworn their service and their lives to a single authority figure, usually a feudal lord. Most samurai are noble and serve their duty unflinchingly. Samurai are often equipped with a longsword called a katana and a shortsword called a wakizashi; in many lands where samurai are found, they are the only citizens allowed to carry more than one weapon. The bushido ability, representing their ability in combat, is exclusive to samurai. Most samurai are aligned with white.[1][2]

Some samurai, due to personal dishonor or the death of their lord, become rogues called ronin; ronin may be just as honorable as other samurai or as underhanded as the darkest rogue. Ronin are usually black or red.

Samurai first appeared exclusively in the Kamigawa block. The first Samurai printed outside the block was Jade Advenger in Modern Horizons 2. Samurai reappeared in Kamigawa: Neon Dynasty.
