Back in the day we didn't have
Creature - Name card types, instead we had
Summon - Name card types. Long ago in magic, cards were printed entirely differently, and this actually creates some interesting situations with the present day rulings. For example, in the past the
Defender ability was non-existent. There were instead creatures printed
Summon - Wall and such creatures with the
Wall subtype were ruled to not be able to attack.
It's supposedly possible now with the introduction of
Defender that such old walls without
Defender can actually attack, drastically changing how some cards have been used.
My question is, if my opponent has such a card,
Summon - Wall, or perhaps
Summon - Goblin, etc., does that count in the present rulings as a Creature Card? Can I target it with "destroy non-black creature", or perhaps "return target creature to opponent's hand"? The confusion between my group of players is the word Creature is actually not on these cards, and it is on every other creature card that's out in this time and age.
