Enriching your Game with Magic: The Gathering Cards BONUS A SANE way to play once you've got them

ENRICHING YOUR GAME WITH MAGIC:THE GATHERING CARDS

The obvious use is inspiration for monsters,that is where my "Smoke Teller" sub comes from(link below) But there are literally thousands of cards to pick from. They could even be used as a very cheep alternative in miniatures(trim the cards to just the illustartion) or to represent units on a large battlefield. Another great use is for spell effects, showing your players the actual visuals of what the BEMs spell looks like. Still another use is :The basic Land can be used to show the players where they are, non-basic lands can be very inspiring for specific locales.Commons and uncommons can often be purchased cheaply at FLGS and grab bags can be found online.

A VERY SANE way to play now that you have all these commons and uncommons

I build all the decks for my group and I have about 30 of them, this way you avoid power creep as everyone builds tougher more expensive decks,It also evens out the playing field by playing multiplayer, so the more powerful decks get stomped on.In a closed environment like this it's a great way to still play if your not up to DMing , tired or bored. You can also play "in character" or have the games represent battles or epic duels in continuity with your game world.

WARNING: IT CAN GET VERY ADDICTIVE AND SPENDING CAN GET OUT OF HAND, parental advisory is in effect.

If you are left struggling for ideas, there are books that are simply the various sets thus far released presented in print form. This can be useful for collectors looking to complete their collections, but it is also useful for things like needing a random monster, plot hook, or whatnot, and then opening to a random page and jabbing a finger blindly to see what it lands on.

I actually used a similar idea a long time ago.
> I shuffled land cards and laid out a country.
> I shuffled enchantments and artifacts and similar cards considered suitable, and drew a plothook.
> I shuffled creatures to get a BBEG and mooks.

Magical forests are never a good place to sleep, especially seeing as much of the population is nocturnal. Firewood taken from the wrong tree can turn against its collectors, and a strangling onslaught of angry twigs and branches can be surprisingly severe and difficult to disentangle yourself from. Fires themselves attract enemies, and not only malevolent predators. Giant moths and gloomwings are tempted by the heat and light, but are often misunderstood.
