Barbarian is a creature type.
They are unorganized fighters, usually from primitive and/or uncivilized cultures. Many barbarians charge into battle in a state of madness, an ability that is reflected on several barbarian cards by abilities that require the player to discard. Many barbarians have first strike and/or haste, representing their ferocity. Barbarians are centered in red.
The barbarian creature type has been by and large supplanted by the warrior and berserker types, but some new barbarians continue to be printed.
