Wolf is a creature type describing a type of predatory canids that exist in many different worlds.


Wolves are large predatory canine creatures that are active mostly at night, and live and hunt in packs. They are related to dogs and jackals. Humans with the ability to change into wolves are known as werewolves or lycanthropes.


The first creature to bear the type was Timber Wolves in Alpha. As of Commander 2020, Wolves appear in all colors.


Aside from Kamigawa, wolves have been found in essentially every existing plane in some form or another.


The Heart Wolf is a type of wolf native to Ulgrotha. They are the standard riding mounts of goblin sub-chiefs, dignitaries and ambassadors, and dwarven traders as well. Heartwolves make fine riding beasts for these smaller folk and are adept at traveling quickly across difficult ground.


The wolves of Mirrodin were an exceptionally unusual breed, being longer-lived than the elves, as wise as the leonin, as sapient as unaltered vedalken, and as rare as a fully organic creature in that world. Like all Mirran animals, they were compleated, the last wolves in Mirrodin (now New Phyrexia) being like the Rot Wolf.


The Kessig Wolf Run is the homeland of Wolves and Werewolves alike. Howlpack Alpha and Immerwolf are Wolf Lords.

After Avacyn was released from the Helvault, she cast a spell that granted the werewolves a choice to either remain a werewolf or to fuse the two spirits in itself (human spirit and bestial wolf spirit), giving it a permanent wolf form but granting an inner-peace. This spell is called the cursemute, and also stifled Garruk's curse for a while. These humanoid wolves became known as wolfir, and were allies of Avacyn.

There are also "Wolfkin" on Innistrad, humans with spcial affinity to wolves and / or characteristics of wolves.[1]


The Ledev Wolf-riders of the Selesnya Conclave apprentice at a young age. Each rider raises a wolf pup from birth to serve as a mount, hoping that one day the two will share the honor of guarding the Great Concourse. The wolves grow up to be bear-sized. A notable one of these is Voja, who was raised by Tolsimir Wolfblood.
