Hello everyone,

I posted about this close to a year ago on the Cryptozoic forums, but I've been meaning to post it here. The original version I had posted on Cryptozoic used a simplistic and ugly looking template, but I finished updating the template to give it a much cleaner, realistic look.

The link below will provide a download for Magic Set Editor (MSE), a program I have been using for years to make custom Magic cards, but templates can be added/created for just about any game. The template for DC DBG is already set inside of the MSE folder, so once you download the zip all you'll need to do is extract it and launch MSE.

Unlike most of the custom cards I've seen posted online, NO PhotoShop or image editing software knowledge is required. Simply fill out each of the card fields (Name, Cost, Card Type, etc.) and add in the image for the card.
This way, you can quickly and easily crank out dozens of card ideas that you may have so you can share them online or print them out and play test with them.

Here are just a few of the cards I've made:

Download MSE with DC DBG Template already ready to go! (LAST UPDATED: 3/24/2014)

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please feel free to respond below or private message me. I'm looking forward to seeing your custom cards.


Version History:

3/26/14 - MAJOR updates have been added.
*Cleaned up the masking on the card, so text won't "float" over the cost/VP icons on the card.
*Updated the 'Faction' icons to look cleaner and added in a few more icons. Will add more upon request.
*Added a 'Sub-type' line. You can use it for anything you so wish, but the one example I used above was 'Super Power - Ongoing' which saved me space in the text box.
*Removed the old legal jargon at the bottom of the old card images and replaced it with a box where you can enter in your own legal jargon. (IE. Artist credit, set date creation, copyrights, etc.)

3/24/14 - Allowed 'Faction' icons to be added to cards.
3/5/14 - Updated template.
