    83 Mythical Creatures & Descriptions

    This list does not include…

    Sci-fi races (sullustian, eldar, sangheili, duros, etc.)

    Half-breeds (half-orc, half-elf, etc.)

    Sub species (Mirrodin vedalken, hill dwarf, mountain dwarf, etc.)

    Types of giants (human giant, giant spider, giant worm, etc.)

    Literally thousands of mythical or divine beings I did not think of

    1. Saproling - A diverse race of plant entities that dwell in the forests of Dominaria.

    2. Dwarf - There are two main races of dwarves (According to WoTC): hill dwarves, and mountain dwarves. They are fairly self-descriptive, however mountain dwarves have improved vision in dark environments. Dwarves are known for their metalworking abilities, short stature, and sturdy build. Some sources claim they can live for an average of 400 years.

    3. Elf - A highly debated race prominent in tales ranging from Santa Claus, to MTG. Ignoring the idea of the tiny shoemaking elves of Earth, elves are human-height, thin, agile, stealthy, and in-tune with nature. Warriors of this species often use light swords, long bows, daggers, and staffs.

    4. Vedalken - Tall, blue-skinned, knowledgeable beings from MTG and D&D, but most prominently the former. Vedalken have six fingers on each hand. Mirrodin Vedalken have four arms, but that trait is reserved to only members of the Vedalken race from that plane. Believing perfection to be inachievable, Vedalken. Jew progress as a never-ending march to a state of perfection that can never be achieved.

    10. Goblin - Thieves, hooligans, and mechanics. Goblins are often in the background committing some silly crime. They can be utilized as comic relief, or cannon fodder, whichever results in their death the quickest (because seriously, these dudes have the highest death rate of anything in this list)
