When VenominOhio pointed out that website to me in the Myspace thread, I kind of went crazy making custom Magic the Gathering cards.

Since I've been playing Magic off and on for the past 12 years, I thought it'd be fun to add a B-movie spin on them.
And I also found it extremely amusing to add some of you guys onto cards!   Wink
(I hope you don't mind)

------------------------------------------

For those of you who aren't familiar with Magic, please allow me explain what the symbols on the cards mean.

The symbols at the top right corner are the card's "casting cost".
It's how much Mana you have to pay to bring the card into play.
You get Mana from "land" cards in your deck and if you have a low amount of land on the table, you won't be able to pay to bring those high cost cards into play.

The number in the grey circle can be paid for with any color of mana while the colored symbols must be paid for using that specific color of mana.
Mana colors in the game of Magic are red, blue, white, black and green.

For example...
The Pumpkinhead card I made costs 8 mana to cast.
It costs 4 black mana and 4 of any other color mana.

Pumpkinhead

(click the thumbnail to see larger pic)

The numbers at the bottom right corner are the creature's power and toughness.
The first number is its power: How much damage the creature deals in combat.
The second number is its toughness: How much damage it can take before it's destroyed and put into your graveyard.

The symbol on the middle right is the "card set or expansion" it originated from.
The set symbols I've used here are made up and do not represent any actual Magic set.

The color of this symbol also represents whether the card is a common, uncommon or a rare card.
Cards with unusually high powers and abilities are almost always uncommon or rare.
Black is common card.  Silver is uncommon.  And gold is rare.

The symbol that looks like a card turning sideways or a circle with a curved arrow in it is the "Tap" symbol.
When you "tap" a card, you have to turn it sideways to use its ability.
And tapped creatures cannot block other creatures.
They "untap" on your next turn.

Your "library" is the deck of cards you draw from during gameplay.
The "Graveyard" is where used spells and dead creatures go.

Each player starts out with 20 life points and the objective of the game is to try to take your opponent down by attacking with your creatures and casting spell cards on them.
When you reach 0 life, you lose the game.

-------------------------------------------

Be sure to click on the thumbnails to see them in full size so you can see what powers and abilities I gave you.   Smile

Here they are...

Atomic Breath


Anubis


Indianasmith


Nightbeast


Skaboi


RCMerchant


Susan


Blood Freak


Mofo Rising


Shadow


And last but not least:

Andrew


-------------------------------------

So what do you guys think?

I added all of the powers and abilities and the "flavor text" at the bottom of each card.
The flavor text is either something I made up or something that you actually wrote and I quoted.
Feel free to download them and use them however you see fit.

If you'd like me to make a card for you, send me an IM with your pic.
They're easy to make.  Each one takes about 5-10 minutes to create.

Some of those are real scary....I would be afraid of Mofo Rising!  Twirling

I see I have the ability to fly....when that pic was taken about 3 years ago...I doubt I could have even walked. I would have been busted for a FUI-(Flying Under the Influnce!)

Wow, I haven't played Magic since high school! Sadly, my anti-socialness doesn't allow me to seek out new people as a general rule, so I have no one to play it with now. I've still got several boxes of those cards in my closet. Very cool creations there Ash! Thanks for mine! I think you and Venom may have just figured out a way to lure me away from what little free time I still have had! I seriously want collect an entire set of b-movie cards now, print them out and make my fiancee play with me!  TeddyR

I couldn't get into Magic, I'm not much for card games like that, mainly because I couldn't find someone to play against.

I think Mofo Rising specifically said that he picked the worst photo of himself that he could find.

Those bring back memories.  We used to sit around and talk and play Magic for hours.  I probably couldn't even play anymore, because I saw some cards the other day and they have changed the rules a lot.

Well, we can't all look as dignified as Skaboi.

That's pretty damn cool, Ash. I'm going to this printed out on quality paper sometime so I can whip it out when anybody threatens to impugn my reputation. "That may be so, but do you have your own Magic card?" There is no comeback to that!

Actually, other than a bunch of new abilities and several tweaks to make the game less confusing and more specific, it's pretty much the same as it always has been.
They've re-worded quite a bit of the rules to stop people from getting into arguments over technicalities that sometimes arise during gameplay.
I remember playing with several guys who would always nitpick the smallest details and bring the game to a grinding halt.
Now with the new rules, much of that is avoided.

And Shadow, by all means go ahead and put it on your page.
That's what I made them for...
Do anything you like with it.   Smile

I need to redo Indiana's card because the text looks a bit smaller than it should.
And Andrew's card needs to have the gold border because almost all legendary creatures in Magic have a gold border.

Think I'll make a few more for my own personal amusement.   TeddyR
And Susan, I was thinking of making one for me but I don't have a good enough pic.  All the pics I have of myself would look silly on a Magic card.
Maybe I'll take a few new shots of myself and make one.

EDIT: Here's a card I made for myself.
(yes...it's a bad pic)

LOL!

These are great Ash!  Love the little quotes at the bottom.  I'll see about throwing mine up on Myspace soon.

Mofo, I can't quite say I look distinguished.  Just unshaven.
