A note about the story arcs for MtG cards - Most of the older cards say "Summon" when it's a creature card. That language is no longer used and if the card was released in a later set, the card type is probably changed. We decided some time ago that what's actually printed on the card should go in the story arc field, but that the most recent, tournament legal type can also be added.


Although I can't see it written in the Guidelines, I believe it was agreed that any revision to card types by WotC can only be added to the Story Arc field on the proviso that the information for both versions of the card are added to the Bio. The first being the information that appears on the actual card itself (using the format in the Guidelines) and sourced as Front of card. The second using the WotC's Oracle changes and sourced as gatherer.wizards.com (as in this example: Fallen Empires (Base Set)30-A). Big Grin
