It’s often the case that you look for something and you find something else. Like these Downton Abbey Magic cards by Killscreen. While they are clever they do look like they were designed by someone who hasn’t played Magic before…
Clever card art by Daniel Purvis. Inspired in no small part by CollegeHumor’s TV show/RPG spoofs. Special thanks to Twitter pals @scd for his significant contributions, and @simonium for Mr. Bates’ special ability!
I’ve only watched one episode of how I met your mother so Neil Patrick Harris is still Dougie Howser/the psychic guy in Starship Troopers to me. But I’m familiar enough with the various memes that have s spread across the tubes to find this amusing.
