MtG: SpellWars ExpansionGaming Workshop


This imaginary expansion to Magic: The Gathering was inspired by Jolly Games' Wiz War, with some tips of the pointy hat to other classic "wizards in a dungeon" shticks. There are even some graphics of the cards, made with plagiarized artwork and Dante's Card Maker, which has apparently been replaced by the "CCG Maker." The graphics are really old and won't be updated.
