Hellbent seems to be an utility word, not a keyword.VestDan 17:52, 8 April 2006 (CDT)

Hellbent is indeed not a Keyword, but an Ability word. --GWiZ665 06:36, 9 April 2006 (CDT)

Isn't it a bad idea to remove the list of keywords before the articles have been completed? It makes it a ton easier to remember which are left... Once all keywords have been addressed, then I can understand it would be redundant, but now? --GWiZ665 19:30, 13 April 2006 (CDT)

BTW, don't derive values from the number of articles in this category for the "As of BLAH, there are BLAH many keywords." Some redirects have not got the category tag on the page, and some do. It's inaccurate to just guess, so just do a count or something. You'll do something ingenuous for sure. :) MM (talk!) 12:46, 20 May 2007 (UTC)
This is what the comprehensive rules are for. ;-) --GWiZ665 16:50, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

table idea[edit source]

this is a table i was thinking about putting together. just not sure where to put it.

list of abilities
name rule # definition type(s) of ability primary color(s) secondary color(s) other
fear can only be blocked by artifact and/or black creatures evasion black none
first strike deals damage before any creatures without first strike evasion white & red (evenly) none
list of abilities by color
name white blue black red green
fear yes no yes no no
first strike yes no no yes no

thanks for any help. Signed: bud0011 (Talk to me | See my other contributions) 03:14, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

Merger Proposal[edit source]

I propose that Keywords be merged into Category:Keywords. The current structure makes a user take 3 clicks to get from Comprehensive Rules to any particular subrule of 702. This proposal would make the page structure mirror that of Keyword Actions. Murgatroid99 (talk) 02:09, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Not a fan of a merger like that. A lot of text in category pages creates a very murky structure for the wiki. Besides, since we now have subcategories like Keyword/Static this page should actually be empty ... --Hunter (talk) 04:11, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Then maybe we should list the abilities on the main Keywords page, perhaps in a CR template structure listing the rules in order by number, like this:

{{CR|Khans of Tarkir|*'''702.''' Keyword abilities **'''702.1.''' Whatever 702.1 says **'''702.2.''' [[Deathtouch]] **'''702.3.''' [[Defender]] **'''702.4.''' etc. }}

I just don't like the indirection of going through that page and this one to get to any particular rule. Murgatroid99 (talk) 04:18, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Attaching a note that the above transclusion of Template:CR will break in the near future as we transition to automated CR references. The above table of contents suggestion will be re-implemented via {{CR|toc=true|lookup=Keywords}} when the conversion is complete. Corveroth (talk) 07:43, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
