Thopter is an artifact creature type used for cards depicting small flying devices.

The first creature to bear the type was Ornithopter in Antiquities (first printed with the type in Ninth Edition). Other examples include Roterothopter, Thopter Squadron and Drill-Skimmer. [1]

Storyline[edit]

Thopters were among the first devices worked upon by the brothers Urza and Mishra. They started out as Thran devices salvaged by Tocasia's team, then the brothers worked on them to make them more efficient and deadly. Used as transport, they were used frequently in the earliest stages of the Brothers' War straight through to the end.

At the the time of the Phyrexian Invasion, ornithopters were employed on the flagship Predator. [2]
