What if the Wizarding World of Harry Potter collided with the multiverse of Magic: The Gathering? The result would definitely be magical, and Redditor Miketrailside has created his own Harry Potter duel decks with custom cards, and they look fantastic. 

The 100-card decks can be played 1-on-1 with Commander/EDH rules but with a couple of exceptions:

  1. Each player starts with 30 life (instead of 40)

  2. There are alternate win conditions for each deck: a) Harry Potter may win by having any student or teacher equipped with all 3 Hallows. b) Lord Voldemort may win by controlling all 7 Horcruxes and Lord Voldemort at the same time.

He also notes that the rule with "disarming" as it applies to the "Elder Wand" means for the equipment to drop off by any means.

The custom set features various characters, settings, and iconic items that Potterheads are familiar with, so if you're a hardcore Harry Potter fan who's also a Magic player, these duel decks might be worth printing for you and a fellow Potterhead buddy to play.

Mike notes that the art used in the cards were taken from images by various people across the internet, and good portion of them were photoshopped by him to look more "magic-like". There are also several images from Jim Kay - the artist who has been working on the Harry Potter illustrated books.
