I was rather surprised to see on the mage cards that the Beastmaster and Priestess are Wood and High elves respectively.
They look exactly like humans. Perhaps in this world they are very similar in physical build?

What are the physical characteristics of elves that differentiate them from humans in this world? Both mages have their ears either completely covered of mostly covered, so I cannot see any pointy ear tips. And a bearded elf is rather uncommon depending on what lore you follow.

Don't get me wrong, the art is beautiful. I just did a doubletake when I read the races on their cards.

Yes, Wood and High elves are very similar to humans in Etheria. Both are usually tall, lean, and lanky.
High Elves are fair skinned and fair haired, and have pointed ears. They have an exceptionally strong code of honor, and are usually followers of Asyra. They are have strong natural magical proclivity and are very intelligent.
Wood Elves have dark brown hair, which is usually partially braided. They are a rugged outdoor folk, a little darker skinned than the High Elves. They are rangers and naturalists, living in harmony with plants and animals, with a natural talent for Nature magic. Wood Elves have slightly pointed ears, less so than the High Elves. The Beastmaster is pictured with his ears usually covered, but some have human blood in their line and their ears are nearly rounded.
