Added sections to the card abbreviations.

Player Types

  • 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

  • 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?

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

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)
