Simic experiments are well known for their unique types. Of any group in Magic they have some of the most memorably unique type lines, but they aren't the only ones. Here's a little quiz for you to use to test your knowledge of the type line:

Creature — Crocodile Frog

Creature — Human Insect Wizard

Legendary Creature — Human Merfolk

Creature — Snake Elf Druid

Legendary Creature — Ooze Mutant

Snow Artifact Creature — Juggernaut

Creature — Faerie Assassin

Creature — Goblin Rogue Shaman

Creature — Cyclops Soldier

Thanks to R&D Director Aaron Forsythe for the idea to do this arcana, and to the handful of members of R&D who helped me find some of these unique types.
