Are there too many creature tribes???

Whenever I think of a new creature type, it can be proven that that creature tribe could simply be placed into another tribe that already exist. Could it be that there are so many tribes that it's pretty much impossible to make any more? A few tribes I came up with that could be turned into another include...


Puppets > Contructs
Pumpkins > Plants/Scarecrows (I was going for a Halloween theme )
Psychics > Wizards/Shaman
Aliens > Eldrazi/Vedalken


So after being corrected around every corner I wondered if Magic: the Gathering already covered every possible creature that could ever be thought up (unless we make up a whole new one lol) or is it possible to make specific creature types like the ones mentioned above.

This is purely out of curiosity and I would like to see your opinions. Are there too many creature types??

The creature types are Advisor, Ally, Angel, Anteater, Antelope, Ape, Archer, Archon, Artificer, Assassin, Assembly-Worker, Atog, Aurochs, Avatar, Badger, Barbarian, Basilisk, Bat, Bear, Beast, Beeble, Berserker, Bird, Blinkmoth, Boar, Bringer, Brushwagg, Camarid, Camel, Caribou, Carrier, Cat, Centaur, Cephalid, Chimera, Citizen, Cleric, Cockatrice, Construct, Coward, Crab, Crocodile, Cyclops, Dauthi, Demon, Deserter, Devil, Djinn, Dragon, Drake, Dreadnought, Drone, Druid, Dryad, Dwarf, Efreet, Elder, Eldrazi, Elemental, Elephant, Elf, Elk, Eye, Faerie, Ferret, Fish, Flagbearer, Fox, Frog, Fungus, Gargoyle, Germ, Giant, Gnome, Goat, Goblin, Golem, Gorgon, Graveborn, Gremlin, Griffin, Hag, Harpy, Hellion, Hippo, Hippogriff, Homarid, Homunculus, Horror, Horse, Hound, Human, Hydra, Hyena, Illusion, Imp, Incarnation, Insect, Jellyfish, Juggernaut, Kavu, Kirin, Kithkin, Knight, Kobold, Kor, Kraken, Lammasu, Leech, Leviathan, Lhurgoyf, Licid, Lizard, Manticore, Masticore, Mercenary, Merfolk, Metathran, Minion, Minotaur, Monger, Mongoose, Monk, Moonfolk, Mutant, Myr, Mystic, Nautilus, Nephilim, Nightmare, Nightstalker, Ninja, Noggle, Nomad, Octopus, Ogre, Ooze, Orb, Orc, Orgg, Ouphe, Ox, Oyster, Pegasus, Pentavite, Pest, Phelddagrif, Phoenix, Pincher, Pirate, Plant, Praetor, Prism, Rabbit, Rat, Rebel, Reflection, Rhino, Rigger, Rogue, Salamander, Samurai, Sand, Saproling, Satyr, Scarecrow, Scorpion, Scout, Serf, Serpent, Shade, Shaman, Shapeshifter, Sheep, Siren, Skeleton, Slith, Sliver, Slug, Snake, Soldier, Soltari, Spawn, Specter, Spellshaper, Sphinx, Spider, Spike, Spirit, Splinter, Sponge, Squid, Squirrel, Starfish, Surrakar, Survivor, Tetravite, Thalakos, Thopter, Thrull, Treefolk, Triskelavite, Troll, Turtle, Unicorn, Vampire, Vedalken, Viashino, Volver, Wall, Warrior, Weird, Werewolf, Whale, Wizard, Wolf, Wolverine, Wombat, Worm, Wraith, Wurm, Yeti, Zombie, and Zubera.

So basically we don't need another creature type?? Lol
Keep in mind not all creature types should be considered tribes. Many types are just for flavour, not to be relevant for some tribal interaction.
[<o>]
No, I don't think there are too many. There are all sorts of mythological creatures that Wizards hasn't touched. All a "tribe" needs to have is an identity. After all "Beast" encompasses most animals - but if your animal isn't flavorfully a beast, then make it something else.

I think there needs to be more types, Wizards is often too strict about types these days.

So basically I can make the pumpkin type but keep it under the plant tribe?

I'd think It'd be more accurate to say That you could make a pumpkin tribe, but they'd all have the Creature type of Plant.

As long as it's random, I really can't see where's the problem. Anyway, there's already a few standard ways for doing this. We listed them in this thread. If someone does the bogey-bogey, eats the cards, waits until they come out, look out the approximate order, place replacements in the same order, calls the president to ask him to give him a string of numbers, puts the card in the given order, then pick the cards in the order given by taking the date of birth of his opponent, reversed, and taking only every other number, then a judge can clearly declare that he's random enough.

I'm talking about the list, not your idea. The list is that big but has types like Hippogriff, Sponge and Satyr that aren't really tribes for lack of tribal interaction.



For you, you could make your pumpkins have the type Plant Scarecrow and make cards that care about both types (like Broodwarden pumps eldrazi spawns but not other eldrazis). Or use just one type Plant and have all share a keyword, then use cards that care about said keyword.

There's actually alot of tribes we haven't seen that I would like to see some day, like Mummies (so far Vengeful Pharaoh is the only one I've seen), Satyrs (Lorwyn elves looked like them, but I'd like dedicated Satyrs), Kappa, etc.

OMG click HERE! OMG! How to autocard and use decklist format
--->
For autocarding, write [c][/c] with the name of the card inside it. [c]Island[/c] = Island For linking a card to Gatherer without writting the name of said card for readers, use the autocard brackets together with and equal sign and right the name of the real card. Then put the message you want inside the tags, like you would do with autocarding. Like this: [c=Curse of the Cabal]Captain Never-resolves[/c] = Captain Never-resolves For using the decklist format, follow this: [deck] 4* Terramorphic Expanse 4* Evolving Wilds ... [/deck] It equals:

Oh, it's a brilliant plan. You see, Bolas was travelling through shadowmoor, causing trouble, when he saw a Wickerbough Elder with its stylin' dead scarecrow hat. Now, Bolas being Bolas took the awesome hat and he put it on his head, but even with all his titanic powers of magic he couldn't make it fit. He grabbed some more scarecrows, but then a little kithkin girl asked if he was trying to build a toupee. "BY ALL THE POWERS IN THE MULTIVERSE!" he roared, "I WILL HAVE A HAT WORTHY OF MY GLORY." and so he went through his Dark Lore of Doom (tm) looking for something he could make into a hat that would look as stylish on him as a scarecrow does on a treefolk. He thought about the Phyrexians, but they were covered in goopy oil that would make his nonexistant hair greasy. He Tried out angels for a while but they didn't sit quite right. Then, he looked under "e" (because in the Elder Draconic alphabet, "e" for Eldrazi is right next to "h" for Hat) in his Dark Lore of Doom and saw depictions of the Eldrazi, and all their forms. "THIS SHALL BE MY HAT!" he declared, poking a picture of Emrakul, "AND WITH IT I WILL USHER IN A NEW AGE OF DARKNESS -- ER, I MEAN A NEW AGE OF FASHION!" And so Nicol Bolas masterminded the release of the Eldrazi.

You know you'll be proven wrong by the next creature type they create.

Also, wizrards and Shamans don't read minds as a general rule.. 
Doesn't wotc introduce new types every now and then? so it's still possible
Ninja and Samurai came out of nowhere (they didn't just use "warrior" for samurai and "rogue" for ninja)
So did Eldrazi.
Kor is another made up race. And even though there is Wolf, they added Werewolf.
There's actually alot of tribes we haven't seen that I would like to see some day, like Mummies (so far Vengeful Pharaoh is the only one I've seen), Satyrs (Lorwyn elves looked like them, but I'd like dedicated Satyrs), Kappa, etc.



Cyclopean Mummy (before mummies all became zombies) and a couple satyrs, one of which isn't really a satyr or playable.

On classes, I still point out "shaman" is a snarl word used by anthropologists, roughly meaning "any belief system that isn't ours". (Hilariously, Etymonline traces it to sramana, so it is an Indo-European word.)I'd refer to every priest, rabbi, and imam as a "shaman" but nobody realizes when I'm condescending.

It generally refers to the spiritual leaders of people in tribal cultures with sub-bronze age technology. "Shaman" also implies the lack of large scale organization, unlike in the Abrahamic, Hindu, and Buddhist traditions.

Sort of like the difference between "Warrior" and "Soldier" is mostly in organization. (Unless you decided to steal your definition from KotOR.)

The New Agers have a few good ideas, but are very prone to forming cults of personality instead of actually seeking enlightenment.

I'm not sure what you mean by "snarl word", it is a simple catch-all, a broad catagory.

I'd agree with this. My job is pretty much to serve these kinds of people and they are ridiculous. I actually prefer the average ignorant American to these people. They are worse because they consider themselves "informed" and "intellectual" when they end up just being another Sheeple Cult.

They refuse to eat food unless it is certified organic. They ignore modern science and medicine, preferring instead "Drum Therapy." For goodness' sake, they claim to have the ability to travel through time.

Needless to say, I was intrigued. I keep trying to get the motivation to invent time-travel so that I can come back and tell myself how to do it. I asked them when they've traveled? What did they see? Any souvenirs? No. Nothing. They went through "the spirit realm" to heal the wounds of the past.

I was disgusted. That's like telling a kid that they can have all the candy they can eat, and then giving them, like, old stale raisins or something. Or candied radishes. I dunno. Maybe, I got carried away. I guess I'm done ranting. Carry on.

Changelings to the rescue!

I like that Changelings are pretty bad at fulfilling their purpose, as people who build tribal decks care more about the flavor of the entire deck. Although they were handy in limited. And some of them are really cool utility cards.

inorite? My personal favorite is that all their bizarreness tends to get turned into stereotypes about Indians. Like, my parents didn't trust OBGYNs (because of a history of coercive sterilization), so I was born at home, but I was still vaccinated.

Also, why does everyone think I can predict the weather and transform into an animal?

And remember, internet, if your "fursona" is a buffalo or a wolf in a loincloth, that doesn't make you an Indian.

Apparently you guys have had a lot of experience with bat guano insane people. That's too bad, but just in case you failed to notice, you find those types in every group. I could go into it more, but I figure at this point we are already riding the edge of the CoC and the unspoken ban on religious talk.

There were also riggers. Though technically once Mistform Ultimus was printed, any creature type listed in the Comp Rules already has a creature.

Rigger was only added to the CompRules when Steamflogger Boss was printed, so there was never a time when Mistform Ultimus was the only Rigger. More generally, the list of creature types in the CompRules contains only types that exist on some creature or token.
