Toby Ord is the creator of a few card games that use a standard deck of playing cards.
Toby Ord's Website:
"I have quite an interest in games. There is a real art to the design of games, and when this is done well, they are a real joy to play. In my time, I have played many different games, and have spent much time thinking about strategy and about design. Occasionally I put my thoughts about design into action, creating variants of existing games and even a few totally novel games..."
