Magic the Gathering Card Tooltips

Description

The plugin adds a button in the visual post editor. To use it, just select the text
that represents a Magic the Gathering card name and click the button. The card name
will be enclosed in [mtg_card][/mtg_card] tags (or the shorthand [c][/c] tag). When
viewing the post, the card name will show up as a link to the card’s page on
https://deckbox.org . Hovering over the link will show the card’s image in a tooltip.

A similar tag can be used to quickly create deck listings: [mtg_deck][/mtg_deck]
(or the shorthand [d][/d]). A deck listing should contain a list of cards and categories.
All cards have a number before their name. All other lines are interpreted as category
names. Do not include card numbers on the category name lines, they will automatically
be computed and displayed by the plugin. A short example follows.

The default style for displaying decks is a card listing with each card having a
mouseover tooltip. This style can be changed to an embedded view, where the
listing has a card image to the right of the deck. This can be toggled in the plugin
settings for all decks, or specifically for a deck by setting the style attribute to
the tag, as can be seen below.

[d title="Really Small Deck" style="embedded"]
    Creatures
    2 Bloodbraid Elf
    4 Grizzly Bears

    Spells
    4 Lightning Bolt

    Sideboard
    4 Cultivate
[/d]

The screenshot section includes an image of the above deck listing.

FAQ

Do you support other games?

Yes, there is a separate plugin for World of Warcraft TCG card tooltips, you can find it at
https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/world-of-warcraft-card-tooltips/.

Is the 3.0 and 2.0 version compatible with the older ones?

Completely compatible: your old posts will remain the same as before, even though your new
posts will use the tag syntax.

Nice plugin

It works nicely but I had to tweak it a little to make it https compliant. Would be nice if you could add cards in other languages but it looks like a deckbox limitation.

Works Just Fine

Just added it to my wordpress. If you receive the error that Websta has with it saying the plugin doesn’t have a valid header, just back out of it and try again, worked for me. The only downside to it using deckbox.org is that they don’t have any of the spoiled cards from a new set up until they’re completely released. Other than that it works great and looks nice.
