AsLorwyn approaches, the type line gains new significance. Some of the tribes of Lorwyn get only a few scattered members from Coldsnap, Time Spiral Block, and Tenth Edition, and others will enjoy an overflowing tribal cornucopia! Today we take a look at all the creatures in post-Ravnica, pre-Lorwyn Standard that fall into Lorwyn's eight tribal races, and a few non-creatures that matter, too.
