Pumpkin and Pumpkinhead Tribe

I'm not sure if any exist, but I would love to see some pumpkin-based creatures/spells. I got the idea when I saw the card All Hollow's Eve and the fact that I love Halloween!!! Oh yeah and I was just watching Nightmare Before Christmas and Jack Skellington, the Pumpkin King is the  !!!! Lol

I figure they would be , :bgm:, and and either related to or ARE fungi (though I don't think pumpkins are fungi). But I wanted to see your opinions on the matter. If there were pumpkin or pumpkin-headed creatures, what could you see them do????

When making them, think halloween.

I was imagining them as micheivious and sadistic creatures who like to harm everyone around them but give you a benefit of being hurt. Or something to do with the lore of Jack-o-lanturns (To scare away evil spirits). But yeah... throw some ideas around.
I don't think we need a new tribe here.

If they're actually pumpkins, "Creature-Plant" will suffice.

If they're some manner of spirit possessing pumpkins "Creature-Spirit".
Or just Scarecrows?

Hm.. well then yeah if it's a creature-plant type that already exist that would suffice I just say tribe in the manner of creatures with a similar theme (such as cinders being an elemental tribe type Manaforge Cinder ).

I should've been more specific and said pumpkin themed cards (plants most likely).
Or just Scarecrows?

I thought of scarecrows prior but then realized they were artifacts. I wanted an organic creature, like living pumpkins.
How about scarecrows and pumpkins pump eachother?

Maybe, the problem with coming up with a new creature type is usually there's already a tribe that it could fit with. I mean I can see pumpkins being a plant and having abilities based on pumpkin lore (that's all I wanted really, just a bit of Halloween fun  ) but like they said they might as well be scarecrows. But then I can see scarecrows being contructs, no??
Ahem!

Hahaha well yeah that works

I don't know I just like the idea of a new tribe to work with. Going with the same tribe for me would lack the necessary synergy I like in cards. If I were to keep pumpkins plants I could see it as...

Jack, the Pumpkin King :bgm::bgm:
Legendary Creature - Plant Skeleton
:bgm::bgm:: Remove target creature from your graveyard, place a 2/2 plant token into play under your control.
3/3

There'd really be no point to the pumpkin theme  (sorry I'm a theme type of guy).
Say wha?

The Reaper King is lord of the Pumpkin Patch, and woe to any who would pretend to assume his pumpkin hat!

@mikemearls The office is basically empty this week, which opens up all sorts of possibilities for low shenanigans

@mikemearls In essence, all those arguments I lost are being unlost. Won, if you will. We're doing it MY way, baby.

@biotech66 aren't you the boss anyway? isn't "DO IT OR I FIRE YOU!" still an option?

@mikemearls I think Perkins would throat punch me if I ever tried that. And I'd give him a glowing quarterly review for it.

Lmfaooooooo!!!!!

You know? You're right.

I can still make the pumpkin theme just put them in the plant tribe. My whole thing was giving syngery ability specifically for pumpkins like "All pumpkins get fear" oh well lol 
I would make the pumpkins specialize in ridding of spirits (jack-o-lanturns were said to ward off evil spirits).

Pumpkin could be a new creature type. Kithkin, flamekin, pumpkin. (Yeah, I know flamekin are elementals...)

Jack-o-lantern is probably too long to fit well on a type line though. Perhaps just "Jack" or "Lantern"?
Jack would be just pumpkin

love halloween! nightmare before christmas has been my favorite movie since i was little!

alright since thats out of the way, lol, i completely agree that pumpkins should be under the "plant" creature type. maybe kinda like saproling in a sense where their bodies are made out of vines, bones, and dead matter and by judging by all hallow's eve i think maybe they should probably be graveyard based :bgm: that deals damage when a creature is brought from the grave back to the battle field or or can bring pumpkins back by removing creatures from grave yards.

for example:  


call of the damned
enchantment aura
enchant player
all creatures in enchanted player's graveyard are spirits along with their other types.
"the grave is where the dead belong" 


soul feeder pumpkin :bgm::bgm:
creature - plant
soul feeder pumpkin enters the battlefield with X +1/+1 counters where X is the number of spirit creatures in opponent's graveyard.
2/2  

bloomgrim pumpking :bgm::bgm:
creature - plant
: exile target spirit creature from target player's graveyard, return target plant creature from your graveyard to your hand.
2/2    
 

Screaming Lanturn :bgm::bgm:
Creature - Banshee Plant 
Screaming Lanturn gets +2/+2 and fear if an opponent controls a spirit
2/2

Lol I know that's why it's called a SCREAMING lanturn
I think he was referring to the type. If Wizards made the card, it'd prolly be "Creature - Spirit" or if they were feeling saucy, "Creature - Plant Spirit."

That, with a side point being that your pumpkin tribe seemed to be very anti-spirit so it seemed odd to have a spirit pumpkin.
