|(Subtype for creature/tribal cards)|
Ship is an atypical, and now obsolete, blue creature type used for cards picturing ships and zeppelins. Pirate Ship established Ship as a creature type all the way back in Alpha, though it would be quite a while before the odd line “Creature — Ship” actually appeared on Talas Air Ship.
In the Grand Creature Type Update the subtype Ship was eliminated, mostly replaced by the race of the shipscrew. The one exception is the silver-bordered Toy Boat from Unhinged which remained as a Ship artifact creature.
