It doesn't get much Geekier than this.

I just did a Geeklist on what to do with all my old MTG cards:

In the same spirit I want to do something with my Spellfire cards.
However this is going to require much more of a makeover.

First off, Spellfire does have some Babe pictures, so that makes it worth salvaging if nothing else.
Plus deep down we are still in touch with our inner AD&D 20th level Geek Lord.
Plus I bought a whole bunch on the cheap (a long time ago).

OK, what can we do here with this mess...

First lets scrap all the rules.

Second, lets replace them with the rules to "Magic the Gathering".
After all, thats what Spellfire was emulating, right?
It just didn't follow the formula closely enough.

New Rules:
Here are the main points:
1. Play it just like you are playing Magic the Gathering.
2. You have 20 Life points.
3. Tap a land to produce 1 Mana.
4. A creatures Level is its power/toughness and casting cost.
5. Play it just like you are playing Magic the Gathering.
6. Ignore card text that doesn't make sense if you were playing MTG.
More minor points...

Treat Allies like Instants. (think Giant Growth)

There are no colors (red, green, etc.) like in Magic, however,
you need a Wizard or Cleric in play to cast those spell types.

Many lands give champions special abilities when they are defending them. Interpret this to mean that your creatures (champions) get this bonus when they are defending your life points (blocking that is).
Lands that can defend themselves as a Hero are considered to be both Lands and Creatures (that can only block like a Wall).

Events (yellow flags) have a casting cost of 1 mana.

Champions with the earthwalk ability cannot be blocked.
Champions that can attack twice do not tap when they attack.

Items are attached to champions. Treat them like local enchantments.
