Using the bang !mtg I could do a search for a specific card from game Magic: The Gathering.

The search would return information for the card (abilities, flavor text, art, casting cost, power/toughness, artist, name of the set it's in, card value, etc) or even display the card itself.

Lots of excellent open source databases of MTG info out there, the game continues to grow in popularity.

DONE

I deleted the card image because of the very big space that it uses.

Nice work! Very cool indeed :).

Maybe instead of displaying the whole card you could just call the artwork? I didn't test that feature of the API but I assumed it returns just the card art.

Thx :D I used mtgdb as you linked. I saw that this service ( currently down, i can't check ) doesn't provide ad API only for the card art. When it will return up i'll check ;)
