Just a quick thing I'd like to point out/ask. I was looking through the hubs, and I couldn't seem to find a hub for elemental. I just find this strange, as a deck based around them would be viable, and would be harder to show off with the lack of an elemental hub. If you read this, thank you for your time.-Shadow29870

Not all tribes have hubs. In general, we try to limit the proliferation of hubs to make them more manageable and meaningful. We could add an Elemental hub if it added sufficient value to the hub system.

Huh, alrighty. Despite having used this site for a good time, I'm still relatively new. What are tribes exactly?

"Tribe" is a term dating back to the Lorwyn set, which had a heavy emphasis on creature-types-matter effects and introduced the tribal card type.
Prominent tribes included Elves, Goblins, Faeries, Merfolk, Elementals, and Kithkin.
Now, "tribe" can refer to any creature type that typically works with creatures of that type for some benefit.
For example, Knights (Knight Exemplar), Soldiers (Veteran Armorsmith, Veteran Swordsmith, Field Marshal), and Wizards (Azami, Lady of Scrolls, Riptide Laboratory are all considered tribes that can span across multiple other creature types (Human, Elf, etc.).

I've discovered another Hub to add.
There are quite a few decks that rely heavily on this mechanic.
