Sections[edit source]

Added sections to the card abbreviations.

Player Types[edit source]

  • Are there three or four general player types?
The article first says there are four, then says there are three, then lists three names. I'm guessing 'four' is just a typo, or is there a fourth type? If so, shouldn't it be listed? (A quick google for "mtg player types" seems to indicate confusion over this matter.) --80.216.222.64 07:38, 16 July 2014 (UTC)
Good catch. This is why I absolutely loathe unsourced stuff on a wiki.. AlmaV (talk) 08:25, 16 July 2014 (UTC)

Slang[edit source]

  • This doubles with Slang --Hunter61 (talk) 02:13, 17 October 2012 (EDT)
"Slang" shouldn't be a listing; but, "Slang" shouldn't be a stub of an article either. It's fairly clear that slang is a real-world term that doesn't have a different specific meaning in the context of MTG.
Man, why didn't whomever edited these pages/types of pages start a good thing ab initio or continue it?
Oh, and that's why I propose that we should merge slang into List of Magic slang. We can use the DISPLAYTITLE magic word to italicize the title of the page and retain the lede/lead section. --Magic Mage (talk!) 05:45, 17 October 2012 (EDT)
Merged. --Magic Mage (talk!) 06:01, 17 October 2012 (EDT)

Tabulating?[edit source]

There's got to be a better way of presenting this info. Tables?

It's also a big mess that needs a total rewrite. Starting from scratch, but not necessarily scrapping the old, some ground rules for the article needs to be laid down (e.g., style, inclusion criteria [notability], references to substantiate what is notable and what is not). —Magic Mage (talk!) 14:07, 1 February 2014 (UTC)

I've added alphabetical headings. Unfortunately the TOC is still a mess because this wiki doesn't have the styles needed to support {{TOCright|limit=3}}. See MediaWiki talk:Common.css. Thrawcheld (talk) 16:06, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
I've done a fair amount of cleanup and moved (most?) obsolete terms into their own section. I also removed "caster", which seems to be totally wrong: several effects let you cast a card owned by an opponent, in which case "caster" is either confusing (not referring to the player who cast the card) or definitely not a synonym for "owner".

One of the WoTC staff nicknamed Sarkhan[edit source]

Is it still too early to call Sarkhan "super president" —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Bigbangbilly (talkcontribs) March 10 2015.

Yes. --Ten19 (talk) 05:20, 10 March 2015 (UTC)
