Card types are a gameplay characteristic of each card in the Trading Card Game.


The card types determine the various gameplay mechanics that a card may have or how they are used (ex: Summon, or Cast).

Currently, there are 10 main card types:
(Card types marked with a star don't exist by themselves.)

When viewing the front side of a card, each card in the game has one of these card types printed on their card type line. However, in the case of double sided cards such as a Psychic or Dragheart, the card type on the front and back side may differ.

"Evolution", "Psychic", "Exile", "Dragheart", "Super", "Forbidden", "D2", "Final", "Happiness", "Neo" and "DG" are not a true card type as they don't exist on their own without the other card types. and are instead known as Special Types.

These are referred to as "Special Types" and are found on the following card types.

While cards are physically used, Seal is treated as a Keyword Action rather than a card type.

Card abilities often refer to card types. For example: Terror Pit's ability says "Destroy one of your opponent's creatures". This ability mentions the card type of creature specifically, which covers any variation such as an Evolution Creature or Psychic Creature.

Survivor, Wave Striker and Gods can be easily mistaken by a card type due to how they are referred to on the effect text of other cards, however they aren't a card type. They are only races and/or keyword abilities.
