Gatherer has the Card Type "Phenomenon" and "Ongoing". Does anyone knows what those two refer to?

    A quick Google search for "mtg ongoing" and "mtg phenomenon" gives an easy answer. – GendoIkari May 10 '15 at 12:52

Both are used in Magic variant formats; that is, not the "usual" rules of the game.

  • Phenomenon is a card type used in the Planechase format. Cards of this type are oversized, and put in a separate planar deck, along with Plane cards, not the deck that becomes the player's library.
  • Ongoing is a supertype that only applies to the Scheme card type, which is used in the Archenemy variant. Cards of this type are also oversized, and put in a separate scheme deck.
