You bet there is, Marty. Not only does copyright prohibit you creating
cards designed for use with the Magic game, but Wizards of the Coast has
a PATENT on their form of card gaming. Duplicating their card layout and
color scheme would probably net you a "look and feel" copyright violation
lawsuit, even without the patent. Not a good idea.
