Thanks!

Once the spellbooker builder is done you will be able to use that to search for cards.

Problem with the forums or website?

In the meanwhile, if you know the name of the card, Google image search for: "Mage Wars" CARDNAME.  It works usually.
I can take the fun out of anything. It's true; here, look at this spreadsheet.

It sometimes works. The words mage and wars are pretty common and often when combined with the card names give irrelevant results.

I find that putting the quotes around "Mage Wars" helps a lot.

Fair point. That would make a difference ^_^.

Not mine, but found this site. It works well for base game.  Looking at the files on github it looks like it is designed well to be simple enough to add new cards.

Subject seen... Answer: Yes (I think, depending upon what you seek.)

There are a couple of places that you could probably visit to see a listing of the cards and an image of each (is that what you mean by search?). Point your browser in this direction => www.gameknight.org/MageWars to see the one I put together. You will need to keep in mind that, contingent upon the selected Mage, you will not see all of the cards. Some spells are "xxx Mage Only" and those are filtered out based on the Mage for which the Spell Book is being created.

Could I request you use something like qTip2 to make it that you display the card images when you mouse over the cards?  Great work thought :)
