Maybe make it collapsible too? --—Magic Mage (talk!) 11:13, 5 May 2013 (UTC)

Proposed update[edit source]

Are there any objections to replacing this template with the design seen here: Template:Card_types/Sandbox? Summary of changes:

  • Obsolete category renamed to unsupported, to accommodate the inclusion of:
    • The Elite supertype, from Hero's Path, which has no Comprehensive Rules support
    • And the Hero type, from the same event
  • Arcane and Trap are defined as subtypes for both instants and sorceries (rule 205.3k), even if only instant Traps exist
  • Planeswalker and Land subtypes explicitly listed, since they don't take up too much space
    • Creature subtypes would take up ~12 lines, so not happening
  • Plane subtypes would also be fairly short, but they're much less commonly encountered
  • Ongoing is technically a supertype but is only relevant in the context of the casual Scheme type, so it's parenthetically linked with those
