Elemental is a non-legal card type which represents a specific element like Fire. It could be seen as a spell variant of kindred.

History[ | ]

Elemental was introduced as a card type on the Mystery Booster test card Trial and Error. The Oracle clarifies that Elemental is a card type, and Fire is an elemental type. The card type has no relation to the creature type Elemental. If an effect refers to an Elemental, it refers to the creature type.[1] Like kindred, it has implementation issues in that many effects might resemble "fire" or "water", but not every set would have the infrastructure to care about it.
