Creature type
(Subtype for creature/tribal cards)

Ship is an atypical, and now obsolete, blue creature type used for cards picturing ships and zeppelins. Pirate Ship established Ship as a creature type all the way back in Alpha, though it would be quite a while before the odd line “Creature — Ship” actually appeared on Talas Air Ship.

In the Grand Creature Type Update the subtype Ship was eliminated, mostly replaced by the race of the shipscrew.


Former ships

Never been ship-type

Exception to the rule

  • Toy Boat from Unhinged never has changed from being an Artifact Creature — Ship.


Because non-creature artifacts never have creature types these Ships never were named as such in the type line:

After the introduction of the artifact subtype Vehicle, Ships were heavily featured as such in the Ixalan block.
