And while I still avoid playing with Black decks because I'm scared of zombies and vampires, I've grown to appreciate the subtle complexities of the game and the unique abilities and stories behind every card. Magic: The Gathering has become the game my friends and I play most frequently at times we're all together. Even on our annual camping trips we'll buy boosters and draft ahead of time and play in our tents at night.
Over the past few years, my friends (who, admittedly, are much better at MTG than me), have been perfecting a version of BANG! EDH, but with a medieval/fantasy backdrop and characters to better fit within the existing MTG universe.
Now that we've agreed on what seems to be the best set of rules and abilities for each role, I thought it would be fun to create custom cards for our group using images sourced from the Library of Congress.
